Sunderland of Scotland Unveils New Rainwear

10.07am 14th November 2013 - New Products

Sunderland RainwearFamous for its multiple award-winning rainwear, Sunderland offers a full range of clothing to suit all weathers which includes UV sun protection shirts, base layers, mid layers, wind proof fleeces and jackets and, of course, exceptional waterproofs.

One of the areas in which Sunderland excels is mid-priced waterproofs which are guaranteed to give ultimate performance and this season sees the introduction of the superb new ‘Vancouver’ waterproofs for men.

With an RRP of just £95 for the jacket and co-ordinating trousers for £65, the Vancouver suit couples contemporary styling with three-year guaranteed water protection.  The laminated fabric technology makes for a jacket that is water resistant, comfortable and breathable and like its mid-range predecessor, the Classic, it looks destined to be a firm favourite.

Sunderland’s best-selling ‘Resort’ range with zip-off sleeves has also been refreshed and now includes seven colour choices in full-zip jackets (RRP £140), while the convertible half-zip weatherbeater (RRP £110) boasts six options.

The Resort jackets consist of an ultra-soft laminate outer that provides superb comfort and protection from the elements. The fabric is waterproof, windproof and highly breathable, while the cut gives it a contemporary look to complement the performance and playability.

At the helm of Sunderland’s waterproofs range is the ultra-lightweight ‘Tournament’ suit – a tour quality garment offering a new benchmark in greater comfort, more freedom of movement and better protection from inclement weather.

Combining the revolutionary THERMAL13™ high performance laminate fabric with a contemporary fit, the Tournament is the professional’s choice (RRP £195 jacket, £130 trousers).

THERMAL13™ helps maintain the energy balance of the human body by using a revolutionary technique to disperse powdered Aluminium in micron-sized particles within the polyurethane membrane itself.

This helps keep the body warm, by using the glint function of the metal to reflect up to 60% of body heat, thereby reducing the conduction of thermal energy through the membrane.

Sunderland’s 2014 Collection of rainwear for men is completed by the stunning ‘WhisperDry Hush’ hooded waterproof jacket (RRP £170) and trousers (RRP £110).

The stormproof jacket incorporates a foldaway hood for increased protection from heavy rain, while the ‘scrunch-free’ Whisperdy™ fabric itself makes the jacket the quietest waterproof in the world.

The 4-way stretch design not only offers superb freedom of movement but delivers outstanding water repellence and breathability, while the knitted tricolour lining provides exceptional comfort and warmth.

Lady golfers, meanwhile, will love the new ‘Bergen’ waterproofs, featuring the Slim-girl™ trim system (a clever use of piping to give the illusion of a slimmer figure).

This fashionable new product (RRP £120) delivers style and substance, with a host of weather-beating features and functionality in five gorgeous colour options. Co-ordinating trousers make this a superior rain suit.

Sunderland will also build on the incredible success of its ladies hooded ‘WhisperDry Hush’ jackets with two new colours for women (Firecracker and Mineral Blue).

And younger golfers are not forgotten with the new ‘Junior Resort’ (boys) and ‘Amalfi’ (girls) weatherbeaters, fully waterproof half-zip jackets with a three-year guarantee to suit ages 7-12. Co-ordinating trousers are also available.
