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 Safety Boots

At Universal Textiles we sell a wide range of high quality work wear at affordable prices. Perfectly suited to work or personal use, our Safety Boots are protective, durable and comfortable, complying with the required safety regulations.  Here we take a look at the merits of a small selection of boots available.

The Portwest Steelite Protector Boot is a bestseller on our website due to its quality and exceptional price of just £14.24. The boot provides superb protection thanks to a 200 joule steel toecap, steel midsole and a slip resistant, energy absorbent heel. Made from split buffalo leather, this sturdy lace-up is a great safety boot.

Caterpillar are known for their thorough testing which ensures their boots are durable, safe and of the highest quality. This can be seen in the Caterpillar Dimen 6” Boot. The leather lace-up boot conforms to the ISO20345 Safety Footwear Standard with a safety category marking of SBSRC. The boot has toe protection of up to 200 joules impact and a nylon lining for comfort.

With many of the same qualities as the Caterpillar boot, the Timberland Split Rock Gaucho Boot has a safety category marking of S3-SRB. The boot has a water resistant upper as well as a penetration resistant midsole of up to 1100 newtons. Extra protection is provided by the rubber EVA sole unit, whilst the boot has speed lace hooks to provide an efficient fit.

The Jallatte JJV28 Boot conforms to the ISO20345 Safety Footwear Standard and has a side zip allowing both easy access and greater protection. It is made with ankle protection and a scuff cap. As well as being water resistant, having toe protection and a penetration resistant midsole, the sole of the boot is also resistant to high heat up to 300°C.
