Sunderland of Scotland unveils 2014 Collection

Sunderland of Scotland has unveiled their new rain wear collection for 2014.

New this season is the introduction of the new ‘Vancouver’ waterproofs for men.

With an RRP of £95 for the jacket and co-ordinating trousers for £65, the Vancouver suit offers a three-year guaranteed water protection.  Sunderland state that “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.

Sunderland say,  “At the helm of our 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 THERMAL13 high performance laminate fabric with a contemporary fit, the Tournament is they say “A professional’s choice” (RRP £195 jacket, £130 trousers).

According to Sunderland 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.

They say “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  ‘WhisperDry Hush’ hooded waterproof jacket (RRP £170) and trousers (RRP £110).

The stormproof jacket incorporates a foldaway hood for increased protection from heavy rain,  and Sunderland state that the ‘scrunch-free’ Whisperdy fabric itself makes the jacket the quietest waterproof in the world!

New in the Ladfies range is the new ‘Bergen’ waterproofs, featuring the Slim-girl trim system which is designed using what they say is a clever use of piping to give the illusion of a slimmer figure.

This new product (RRP £120) is designed to offer a fashionable style whilst offering what the company describes as “A host of weather-beating features and functionality in five gorgeous colour options”.

The youth market is also catered for 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.
