Great outerwear for the great outdoors
Outdoor brands Trespass, a newcomer to the promotional market last year, has added 29 new styles to its range at PenCarrie this year. These include the padded, parka-style Oran Jacket (TP057) with its fur-lined hood and Coldheat insulation. Also featuring in the line is the equally fashionable yet functional Ladies Everyday Jacket (TP058), which has similar styling and details, while the lightweight and warm Zaky Down Jacket (TP055) has a fitted, retail feel with a polyamide downproof lining and 80% down/20% feather padding. A similar style for women is the Ladies Ollo Down Jacket (TP056).
Result has combined the great features of a softshell jacket with the popular 3-in-1 jacket concept to create the RS400M 3-in-1 Soft Shell Journey Jacket and complementary women’s RS400F. The jacket features 100% polyester ripstop outer, which has an inner zip to attach the two-layer softshell inner jacket. The garment incorporates all the key features needed in a heavyweight outdoor jacket including breathable, waterproof and windproof protection.
Gazelle Sports has created the Pioneer Jacket, a generously fitting jacket that is slightly longer than a traditional bomber jacket and has a softer, half-elasticated bottom for a comfortable fit.
The shell fabric has a waterproof coating with taped seams for maximum water-repellent properties. A large Velcro-fastening storm flap covers the front zip to give the wearer extra protection against the cold and wind. The lining, which extends into the collar, is made from an anti-pill microfleece, and the sleeves are padded and have an adjustable, elasticated cuff for a snug fit. The fully taped and fully lined hood can be concealed in the collar and secured with Velcro, and there are two deep front zip-fastening pockets.
The company says the jacket is ideal for workwear and all outdoor purposes, is easy to customise with either vinyl print or embroidery, and comes in black or navy.
Jackets for golfers
Golfwear brand, Glenmuir has a number of jackets that will stand up to the British weather. These include the Glenmuir Ladies Waterproof Golf Jacket, a 100% polyester Rain Bloc stretch waterproof style that comes in black/white, and tulip/black. It has a breathable lining, lock-down waterproof zips and zip guards, and two front pockets with waterproof zips.
Another jacket for women is the Sunderland Ladies Whisperdry Ultra-Lightweight Waterproof Golf Jacket made from 100% performance polyester. This combines a sealed seam construction with a four-way stretch fabric. It is ultra-lightweight, water-repellent and breathable, has a custom embroidery access zip, and comes in five colours.
For men there is the Glenmuir Mens Padded Golf Gilet with its 100% nylon ripstop stretch panels on the outside and 100% polyester fleece on the inside. It comes in black or navy colours and has Teflon-coating for water- and oil-resistance that lasts wash after wash.
