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.

Choosing Women’s Trainers

Great for both fitness and everyday wearing, at Universal Textiles we’re delighted to offer a wide range of Women’s Trainers at great prices. From top brands such as Skechers and Glagla, we provide classic trainers and those with a more modern design. With such a variety to choose from, we take a look at just a few here.

We are excited to be able to offer you a large selection of shoes from the highly reputable Skechers brand. Having been operating for over twenty years, Skechers is a mark of high quality footwear both in performance and fashion.  These Skechers SK12265 Trainers are no exception, offering both comfort and performance. The lace-up design has a soft padded tongue and soft textile lining, providing comfort and also helping to provide support to the feet. The shoes also provides increased ankle support, making them ideal for running.

An environmentally conscious French company still in its relative infancy, Glagla’s rise has been a sharp one due to the quality and innovative nature of their products. Their footwear is ventilated and lightweight, making them incredibly versatile. The Glagla Original Ventilated Trainer is ultra-lightweight and has a Drytech mesh upper providing total air circulation. As with our entire range of Glagla shoes, it is made with a three layered sole with engineered openings to evacuate moisture. The non-marking soles make this shoe ideal for indoor fitness classes and the quick-drying fabric makes them easy to wash and great for watersport.

Another quality shoe from Glagla is the Tivano Tutti Fruti Trainer. With many of the great features of the ventilated trainer, this trainer is of the more classic lace-up design. The shock absorbent soles make these trainers great for rough terrain or sports such as running or tennis where there is repetitive impact.

From Mirak we offer a selection of high quality footwear at great value, with these Contender Velcro Trainers being an example of this. With a leather outer, these velcro fastening trainers are great for sport and casual wear. Available in two colours, the padded tongue and textile lining offer increased foot support.

Also from Mirak, we have these Lace-Up Plimsolls. Great for casual summer wear, this timeless design is incredibly versatile as an addition to many an outfit. They are also great for tennis or light exercise.

Finally from Hi-Tec we have this Classic Squash Trainer. A pioneering brand whose designs are driven by new technologies, these trainers are built for performance. The lightweight shoes are made with a synthetic upper. Ideal for many sports and the gym, the non-marking sole also grips incredibly well.
