Mizuno‘s Autumn/Winter ’21 apparel collection, which is at retail now, features a series of ingenious performance fabric technologies to boldly tackle the elements.
With functionality at its heart, the AW21 collection is built upon a toolkit of Mizuno’s core performance technologies. Modern and vibrant – as striking in looks as performance.
- In the rain – Nexlite Flex, offering complete waterproofness with incredible flexibility and comfort.
- Incredible warmth – Mizuno’s Breath Thermo technology, a fabric that generates heat from escaping body vapour. And, Mizuno Thermal Plus, a material that regulates the dissipation of body heat.
- Dynamic movement – BioGear, reducing muscle/joint fatigue due to stretch, pressure and shape. And, Mizuno Move Tech, anatomically-patterned four-way-stretch Move Tech fabric.
The Breath Thermo Short Sleeve Winter Polo (£65) is classically styled and features groundbreaking Thermo technology to retain heat. It is complemented by the Breath Thermo Long Sleeve Winter Polo (£68) which is an ideal garment for layering or for wearing on its own on warmer autumn days.
The Breath Thermo Winter Jacquard Polo (£63) offers the same technologies with a more contemporary styling and a cool, contrast panel on the chest.
The Breath Thermo BioGear Base Layer (£63), available in white, charcoal grey and black, is an essential winter garment. Not only does the Breath Thermo technology help maintain a consistent body temperature but the stretch fabric also helps to reduce muscle fatigue through fit and pressure.
Moving to outerwear, the Windproof Jumper (£135), available in deep navy, enamel blue, black or grey, is a ¼ zip neck, lined jumper providing superb protection against the wind with, lined details featuring on waist band, neck and cuffs.
Move Tech Winter Trousers (£140), available in marl grey, black and deep navy, feature Mizuno’s Move Tech four-way stretch fabric for ease of movement. They come with a brushed lining for warmth and comfort.
The Winter Stretch Full Zip (£145), available in five striking colourways, is a mid-weight jacket in bold pixelated camouflage print. The outer stretch layer delivers exceptional movement and quietness through the swing. It has a four-way stretch Move Tech lining, which wraps snugly around the body for superb heat retention. A ¼-zip version of the Winter Stretch jacket (£135) is also available in five colourways.
The new Nexlite Flex jacket (£140), available in coral red, black, deep navy and grey, is so lightweight and free moving, that you might forget to take it off when the rain stops. Water resistant to 20,000mm, breathable at 25,000g/m2, and now with 15% additional stretch. The jacket remains water repellent even after numerous washes. In addition, the material is free from environmentally harmful perfluorooctanoic acid).
Available in deep navy and black, Nexlite Flex Trousers (£132) feature all the same technologies as the Nexlite Flex jacket, and they come with an elasticated waistband for maximum comfort.
Also in the AW collection are the Breath Thermo Knit Beanies (£27) and Pom Pom hats (£32). These feature Mizuno’s heat generating Breath Thermo fabric to keep you playing in the coldest conditions.
