LAKE MARY, Florida – Hoodies continue to grow in popularity, but one drawback to wearing hoodies during a round of golf is the bulky nature of the product. They can be very swing restrictive.

That is not the case with the Zerofit Heatrub Move Unisex Hoodie, distributed by Zerofit North America LLC, the exclusive authorized distributor of Zerofit baselayer apparel in the U.S. and Canada. This product is a no-sweat base layer with a hood, for cooler temperatures but not freezing weather.

Zerofit is a Japanese performance apparel brand and manufacturer of the best base layer products for outdoor activities.

The Heatrub Move Unisex Hoodie is ideal for a variety of active sports like golf, sailing, bicycling, and skiing. It is a hoodie edition of the Zerofit Heatrub Move and can be worn as a baselayer or an overgarment to provide comfort and warmth with less weight. 

“One of the issues with some hoodies is the thick/sweatshirt like material that can be bulky, even to the point of restricting the swing,” a reviewer with Independent Golf Reviews detailed. “Zerofit is new to the US market with their Heatrub Move Hoodie which is thin like a t-shirt, but yet one of the warmest hoodies I’ve ever worn.  It might just be the product that convinces you to embrace the hoodie too.”

Standard features of the Heatrub Move Unisex Hoodie include:

  • Ultra-dry effect
  • Regulates body temperature
  • Comfortable and light textile

The review posted on Independent Golf Review goes on to explain, “The Zerofit Heatrub Move Hoodie shines in the cool temps.  I was blown away by how warm I felt with just this thin hoodie on.  Often I’d be 3 layers thick at least in the cool temps, I just went with a single layer with this hoodie and nothing under it.  I stayed plenty warm for my entire round of golf.   It was in the 50s which for AZ golf is like freezing.”

Available in Black and Titanium colors, the Move hoodie is made with the finest materials of Polyester (50%), Polypropylene (45%), and Polyurethane (5%). Just like the Move base layer, the Heatrub Move Hoodie regulates balance in temperature right after wearing it. If the person wearing it starts having a high temperature, it lowers the heat to normal. In contrast, when they are initially feeling cold, this base layer allows them to heat up and get back to normal.

The Zerofit Move is comfortable because of the Polyester fiber that is durable and lightweight, quick to dry, making it great for outerwear. The flexural strength of Polypropylene, semi-crystalline in nature, helps resist chemicals like slightly acidic body sweat, identical to Polyurethane.

“As we’re starting to move into the warmer months, I am confident golfers will find the Move line of products a great addition to their closets,” said Doug Zirbel, CEO of Zerofit North America LLC. “Perfect for cool weather but not freezing temperatures, our “Move” products are still twice as warm as a traditional baselayer and allow for unrestricted mobility and maximum comfort. When you wear our products, they won’t hinder your swing.”

Zerofit was founded by Koji Higashi in his native Japan in 2005 and the brand was launched in the UK and Europe in 2018 before further expansion into North America in 2020 and Australasia in 2021.

A passionate golfer and fitness enthusiast, Higashi was unable to continue to do the sports he loved when the weather turned extremely cold, because he felt there was a significant lack of suitable clothing options to keep participants warm and their body temperature regulated.

The award-winning Heatrub Ultimate baselayer was unveiled to the Japanese public in 2011 and since then hundreds of thousands of outdoor enthusiasts have discovered the benefits of that best-in-class product. Many products have been added to the extensive Zerofit collection over the years, including Heatrub Ultimate Leggings and the Heatrub Move baselayer, as well as products that are designed to cool users down in hot summer weather.

Zerofit’s “Ultimate” is its warmest line of products and allows for total mobility and comfort for a variety of activities and sports with amazing warmth. The Boken Institute in Osaka, Japan, tested the heat retention of the Zerofit Ultimate baselayer and it was proven to be five times warmer than leading competitors. Zerofit is trademarked as “The World’s Warmest Baselayer.”

The technology in the threads is activated by movement, generating heat instantly. The “double loop” barrel fabric provides both heat insulation and “friction heating” via extra-long bristles. These bristles ensure that a layer of warm air is retained around the body, and even a little movement of the bristles causes friction which creates heat and actually warms you up.

Zerofit North America is looking to partner with pro shops, sales representatives and distributors to grow the line. Interested parties should call Doug Zirbel at 760-310-9840, email at, or visit for more information.
