Climalite vs Climachill 2018 jersey technology.


The new Adidas Climalite replica 2018 Adidas jerseys are very similar, almost identical (classic Adidas kit material, stitched badges), while the authentic Adidas Climachill jerseys are totally different to the previous high-end Adidas Adizero kits.


The new authentic Adidas Climachill jerseys have a totally different, more plastic material, which is similar to the one of Nike's authentic kits. The Adidas logos and other brandings such as the Three Stripes are glued on the jerseys.


The authentic Adidas Climachill football kits not only have a completely different shirt material, they also have a completely different cut than the replica Climalite jerseys. The cut of the authentic Adidas Climachill jersey is elongated and tighter for a better fit.


The authentic Adidas 2018 World Cup kits featuring Adidas' Climachill kit technology retail at a price of 130 Euro, while the replica kit with Adidas' Climalite jersey technology has a retail price of 90 Euro.
