Everything You Need to Know About Team USA’s Winter Olympic Uniforms

Today, the U.S. Olympic Team made its debut at the opening ceremony of the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, sporting an ensemble created by the Ralph Lauren brand.

Burton’s official uniform for the athletes is white with red color pops, and it takes distinct design cues from vintage NASA space suits.

Speedskating Uniforms

After its 2014 Olympic speedskating uniform was widely panned, Under Armour went back to the drawing board for Pyeongchang. Two years of development and 100 hours of wind tunnel testing resulted in H1, a highly aerodynamic fabric that has been integrated into the arms and legs of the speedskating skins.

Bobsled & Skeleton Uniforms

Under Armour also is providing the “skins” that are being worn by the U.S. bobsled and skeleton teams, modeled here by bobsledders Hakeem Abdul and Codie Bascue. In addition to the racing outfits, the team also will be wearing items from the brand’s Country Pride collection, including puffer coats and vests, a warmup jacket and a special version of UA’s Fat Tire boot.

Team USA’s mogul skiers will be braving the hills in a kit by Columbia. The uniform features the brand’s Outdry Extreme waterproof protection and a camouflage pattern designed to help mask body movement — a key judging component for moguls skiers.
