Tom Brady Pajamas Review:  Under Armor's New Performance Sleepwear 4

The apparel company Under Armor just released their performance pajamas which Tom Brady apparently wears. The reason that these are being marketed as performance pajamas is that they claim to help with recovery. The are weaved with bioceramics that turn body heat into infrared energy that apparently helps with healing and restoration.

This sounds very similar to celliant technology which has been around for years. If you want more information about celliant, and other places you can find it check out my Celliant Post.

Below is a video overview of the Tom Brady Pajamas

I just purchased a pajama top and bottom in XL to try out. The pajamas come in a zippable box which is kind of fancy for pajamas.

Upon unboxing, you will find the pajamas along with a card that explains how they work and a little more information on the collaboration between Tom Brady and Under Armor.

Here’s a close up of the card that explains the TB12 and Under Armor partnership

Inside is the box is an XL size of the pajamas. I have a 34″ waist and these are a little loose around the waist. I’m also 6 ft. 3 in. and they are a bit short but it’s not that bad since the legs have taper towards the bottom. However I wish they would make a tall size. It is hard to find tall size pajamas. So far my favorite store for tall size pajamas is L.L. Bean. I have bought some Large Tall pajamas from Eddie Bauer in the past but the quality seems to have gone down hills as they don’t last all that long.

Below is a photo of the inside of the pajamas. As you can see they are made in Vietnam. You’ll also notice the hexagon shape which I believe is a way to call out their recover technology that is built into the pajamas.

Here’s another show of the inside that shows it in more detail.

Under Armor calls it the TB12 Recovery Technology. I have no idea what that means. It sounds technical but I can’t find anything specific about it.

Here’s what they do say about the TB12 recovery technology:

HOW TB12 RECOVERY TECHNOLOGY WORKS
Far Infrared is a type of energy on the infrared spectrum that has several benefits for the human body. TB12 technology was developed to harness it even when you’re resting. The soft bioceramic print on the inside of the garment absorbs the body’s natural heat and reflects Far Infrared back to the skin. This helps your body recover faster, promotes better sleep, reduces inflammation, and regulates cell metabolism.
I am fairly certain that this bioceramic is the same as or very similar to celliant technology. The Bioposture mattress is the first mattress to incorporate Celliant in their mattress and the beauty of that is that you don’t need to wear the same pajamas every night to get the benefits.
Findings
These pajamas breathe extremely well, just like you would expect from Under Armor products. They are light and stretchy so you don’t feel constricted while sleeping in them. During the winter months in Minnesota, I usually always wear my flannel pajamas to bed, however I may start switching to these as they give you more freedom of movement.

One thought on “Tom Brady Pajamas Review: Under Armor’s New Performance Sleepwear”

  1. Thanks for the review. I believe TB12 is “Tom Brady 12” (his jersey #), but that’s just a guess. Nothing special, just marketing–haha!

    I am a textile developer, so I am looking into this UA project. In principle, the FIR should work for muscle recovery, but from what I can see this is a print (not ceramic in the textile/yarn), so while I do think there can be benefits, they may not be as readily realized.
