New jogging bottoms for all
Gazelle Sports says it can be difficult to find a great pair of jogging bottoms that perform well and fit well while looking pretty cool, which is why it decided to design a pair that offers all of the above and more.
The company always tries new products on friends and family, and so the new Energy Jogging pant was trialled on both, and the feedback was extremely positive, says Gazelle, adding: “They look fabulous on both males and females alike.“
These pants are great for the gym, when training outdoors in cooler weather or for simply lounging on the sofa. They come in grey marl and black and have two front zip-fastening pockets. They are totally unbranded so can be printed or embroidered for a great-looking team pant.
Get ahead of the game
Uneek launched its new 100% polyester range in the summer of 2015. The Men’s Ultra Cool Polo Shirt (UC125) and complementary women’s style (UC126) feature a birdseye knit and offer breathable wicking properties. They come in seven colours, from classic black and navy to sapphire and electric green, and in sizes XS-3XL for men and XS-2XL for women. Those looking for a more relaxed feel can opt for the Men’s (UC315) and Ladies Ultra Cool T-Shirts (UC316).
Raza Khan, managing director of Uneek, says: “Whether you’re a five-a-side fanatic or part of a weekly running club, the Cool range of polos and T-shirts helps move moisture rapidly away from the skin to the outer surface of the garment, keeping the wearer comfortable. The polyester fabric also provides a great base for decoration, including embroidery and printing for personalised sportswear and countless other potential end users.“
The entire polyester range from Uneek has been enzyme washed to give an extra soft feel and reduced shrinkage properties.
