April Shower Solutions: Our Top Picks For Coats & Umbrellas

Summer may seem as though it’s just around the corner, but as this week’s weather has proven, it’s all too easy to get caught in a sudden April shower. If you’re looking for something to fend off an unexpected cloudburst without weighing you down, we at Universal Textiles have a variety of transitional jackets and umbrellas to keep warm and dry until the summer months arrive. Take a look at our top April shower solutions below!

Whilst a sunny spring day may signal the approach of warmer weather, slipping on your shorts and t-shirt too soon may leave you more soggy than sunkissed. This Brave Soul Survivor Transitional Jacket is perfect for unpredictable conditions, combining a comfortable, lightweight build with a special showerproof finish, ensuring that rain is kept at bay without bringing you out in a sweat. For women, this Brave Soul Rave Jacket brings together fashion and functionality, coupling equally effective showerproofing with an eye-catching floral pattern.

For those seeking something even more convenient, this SOLS Shore Packaway Windbreaker Jacket offers water resistant and windproof protection in a design that folds neatly away into the jacket’s front right pocket. Younger customers are also well catered for, with our Boys and Girls Packaway Jackets being the perfect choice for parents looking to keep kids dry on the way to school or during trips out.

Though somewhat unwieldy in windy conditions, a quality umbrella can prove to be an invaluable tool when faced with an unforeseen downpour. Available in London and New York designs, this stylish Compact Close Cityscape Umbrella is the perfect choice for those looking to stay dry whilst on the move, and this Kimood Auto Open Walking Umbrella is a smart, sleek choice for sheltering two people from the elements.

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.
