Best Deals On British & Irish Lions Training Kits
Canterbury British & Irish Lions Warm Up Shirt
+ Official warm-up jeersy
+ Recycled polyester
– Only one colour
We start with the official warm-up shirt of the Lions. Available in black, it has a number of design features we like, such as the bold geometric print in different colours, the high-quality stitching, and the presence of Pro-Fit, which means the shirt is fitted but has a little bit of extra room around the arms and stomach.
Much like the official Lions jersey, it has a low-profile white collar and it is also made from 100% recycled polyester which is a sustainable construction we can all get on board with.
Canterbury British & Irish Lions Training Shirt
+ Perfect for training
+ Four excellent colours
– Slightly different from shirt the players use
As worn by the Lions in their training sessions, you can also get the official training shirt with one difference. On the shirt available to the public there is no Vodafone logo which is actually something we prefer.
It is made with a durable and quick drying material to withstand daily training while wicking moisture away so you won’t work up a sweat.
Importantly, wherever you are from, there is a colour for you as well as this shirt is available in white, green, red and blue to signify the four nations.

Canterbury British & Irish Lions Superlight Graphic T Shirt
+ Perfect workout shirt
+ Unique design
– Not the best shirt to watch games at the pub
Another shirt that would work well as a training or gym shirt is this Superlight model.
As you would expect from the name, it is made from lightweight fabrics which feel great and there are little details we like too, such as the mesh sleeves and rear panel for added breathability. It also dries quickly and once again comes in several colours.
Canterbury British & Irish Lions Singlet
+ Total freedom for the arms
– Singlets not for everyone
If you are more of a singlet wearer when training, or you live somewhere that has a climate conducive to wearing one, then this Lions top could be the kit for you.
Like a couple of the models above, it is made with the lightweight and moisture wicking material, but obviously has more freedom of movement for the arms.

Canterbury British & Irish Lions Shorts
+ Official match shorts
+ High-quality stitching
– Some may prefer a drawcord to tailor fit
To go along with a good training top, why not also consider these official Lions match shorts too? Perfect for the pitch, the VapoDri fabric performs in all the ways you would want it too, especially in terms of evaporating sweat.
The side panels are excellent not only because of the dual coloured elastic but also in terms of freedom of movement. Finally the little details like the silicon grip on the elastic waistband, which keeps them in place, make these shorts a very high-quality product indeed.

Canterbury British & Irish Lions Gym Shorts
+ Can tailor the fit
– Only one colour
You have got several good training tops but a good pair of shorts is also important if you want to get the most out of your session. Restrictive and uncomfortable models are extremely annoying especially when doing cardio or during a long session in the squat rack.
Enter these Lions Gym shorts. They are quick-drying, deal with sweat excellently, stretch nicely, and also have an elasticated waistband and inner drawcord so you can make sure you are comfortable and ready to power through the session.
The embroidered logos add a premium feel too and the presence of pockets is an added bonus.
Canterbury British & Irish Lions Tech Fleece Pants
+ Excellent for all conditions
+ Keeps the rain out
– Some will prefer a looser ankle fit
If you want a pair of pants that can perform in any weather condition, then look no further than the Canterbury Tech Fleece design above.
They have been designed with weatherproofing in mind and this takes the form of several design flourishes, such as the Vaposhield fabric which has water repellent technology that repels water off the surface of the fabric. Additionally the hydrophobic upper section keeps the rain out when needed.
This protection has been paired with stretch and also breathability thanks to the lower section which transfers moisture away.
An excellent pair of pants.
Canterbury British & Irish Lions Poly Knit Track Pants
+ Ideal for cold days
+ Easy to put on/remove
– Only one colour
On those extra cold days, training in shorts can be an ordeal but this shouldn’t be the case because Canterbury makes pants that can be trained in too.
Take these Track Pants for example which are incredibly easy to put and remove quickly thanks to the zippers on the legs, and the elasticated waist. The stretchy fabric also helps in this regard.
Canterbury British & Irish Lions Hooped Short Sleeve Jersey
+ VapoDri material for superior moisture wicking
+ Hybrid on- and off-pitch design
– Relaxed fit might not be best for playing
A new edition to the 2021 range is this hooped jersey which we think can be work both and off the field.
If you’re looking to play in this shirt, or train in it, the VapoDri material will ensure that your temperature is regulated and moisture is wicked away from the skin, while the short sleeves free up your hands for tackling and passing.
Also it has a relaxed fit, and has a casual design making it perfect for the pub too.
Canterbury British & Irish Lions Jersey T Shirt
+ Use this anywhere
+ Good value
– Some may want a more unique design
If you like to keep things simple then this Lions t-shirt might be the model for you. Made from a blend of cotton and polyester, it is versatile enough to be used just about anywhere from the stadium, to the home.
It also works in the gym because of the good stretch properties.

Canterbury British & Irish Lions Quarter Zip Fleece
+ Ideal for warmth
+ Concealed pockets
– High collar can be off-putting
When those winter mornings make you want to stay in bed, knowing you have gear to deal with the cold is vital. If you don’t then why not go for this quarter-zip fleece?
The thermoregulating technology has been designed to keep heat in well whilst the cuff and hem binding creates a skin tight fit to stop the cold in its tracks. The fleece lining is also soft on the skin too.
Additionally we love the concealed pocket zips and the fact there are three colours to choose from.
Canterbury British & Irish Lions 2021 Track Jacket
+ Keeps cold at bay
+ Full zip easy to remove
– Perhaps lacking proper protection from the rain
Our final selection is this Track jacket from Canterbury. It’s comfortable, breathable and moisture-wicking thanks to the VapoDri fabric and it also has roomy sleeves made for stretching out.
We found it to be the ideal top to travel in because it was also good at dealing with the cold, and yet with the full-length zip it can be removed quickly if you get too warm as well.
Once again it is great to have a top with pockets and like the fleece above, they are concealed nicely.
