The adiPower is no ordinary World Cup vest, but is a high-tech pre-cooling device that keeps players cool and comfortable. One of the main challenges facing players at the World Cup in Brazil will be soaring temperatures; the adiPower pre-cooling vest helps players tackle that.

The vests reduce body temperature and delay the onset of fatigue, and will be worn by players while warming up and during half-time intervals.

The vests are embedded with hyper-absorbent granule zones located around the lower arms and upper back, the body's primary cooling zones. They are designed so that there is no direct contact between the ice and players' skin.

The adiPower pre-cooling World Cup vest will be worn by players from the nine adidas-sponsored national teams including heavyweights Spain, Germany and Argentina.
