A Great Selection of Regatta Products

At Universal Textiles we are proud to offer customers products from many top brands, including Regatta. Britain’s best loved outdoor clothing and footwear brand, Regatta’s reputation has been built on providing stylish and practical outdoor wear. With over 80 years of industry experience, their range of high quality weatherproof garments are both reliable and durable. They also pride themselves on using ethically sourced materials and providing customers with great value for money.

So whether it be a pair of trousers, gloves or a jacket you need, Regatta have all your outdoor needs covered. Below is just a selection of Regatta products available on our website.

Regatta produce a wide range of high quality fleeces, including this Ladies Thor III Fleece Jacket. Made from a premium yarn, they are lightweight yet warm, as reflected in their GSM (grams per square meter). This particular fleece comes in five colours and has fleece cuffs and an adjustable shockcord hem to maintain heat.

The signature quality expected from the company is also reflected in their hats and gloves. Many of their hats, including the Thermal Winter Fleece Hat, are made with Thinsulate technology. This increased density of fibres enables heat to be maintained, whilst moisture can escape.

Regatta products are ideally suited to outdoor sports such as skiing. This is reflected in these Kids Waterproof Ski Mittens. Both waterproof and made with a thermal lining, these mittens will keep children’s hands dry and warm for hours. The grips on the mittens make ski poles easier to grasp, with an adjustable velcro strap enabling the mittens to achieve the perfect fit.

Whether for work or recreational use, Regatta’s waterproof trousers are renowned for their exceptional quality. The Packaway Waterproof Trousers are one such pair. Both wind and waterproof, the trousers are made with taped seams and press studs at the hem. They also have an elasticated waist and are breathable as well as waterproof, making them comfortable to wear both as an individual garment and atop another pair of trousers.

The garment Regatta is perhaps most noted for, however, is the jacket. Just one of many great jackets available from them, the Benson II 3 in 1 Waterproof Breathable Jacket, features many of the trademark features expected from a Regatta jacket. Made with waterproof and breathable Isotex coated taslan fabric, Isotex is Regatta’s own family of waterproof and breathable fabrics that offers a waterproof performance of up to 20,000mm.

With anti-pill fleece lining for warmth, a concealed hood and a studded stormflap, the jacket is suited to all conditions. It is also windproof, has taped seams and several pockets to store maps, mobile phones and much more.

With classic hook and bar fastening and available in four colours, the garment is made from 100% polyester satin weave.

From Brook Taverner we have a range of high quality suit jackets and trousers. Brook Taverner, based in Yorkshire, is one of the UK’s most respected names in men’s classic tailoring, and is based on three principles: quality, service and price. The exceptional quality of their pieces can be seen in this Imola Single Breasted Suit Jacket. The three button jacket is a stylish and comfortable fit made with a centre vent and fitted with four internal pockets.

Also available from Brook Taverner we have the Avalino Flat Front Suit Trouser. These trousers are a smart and well-fitting addition to a highly formal outfit or merely a shirt and shoes.

Choosing A Jacket

The weather is so unpredictable right now, but come rain or snow, one thing is for sure, you need a dependable, good quality jacket. But what do you choose?

Hard shell jackets consist of three layers, the inside layer being a porous breathable membrane which protects you from the rain but also allows your perspiration to move away from the body. On either side of this is a fabric layer which gives the overall look of the jacket. They are also treated with Durable Water Repellent treatment.

Soft shells also have the DWR treatment, but don’t use the inside membrane. They are more breathable than a hard shell, providing you with an appropriate amount of protection and meaning you don’t get sweaty while wearing it.

We have a selection of hard and soft shell coats, so whatever you need them for, you will find what you are looking for.
