August 24, 2010 (Bainbridge Island, WA) – Redington is taking comfort and functionality in apparel to the next level with its new collection of knits and technical garments. This apparel line is meant to encourage consumers to get outdoors more and enjoy being active.
The men’s Lost River Tee is the first in the collection of new knits and comes in a long sleeve and a short sleeve version. This is a versatile performance garment that is fast wicking, quick dry and has a UPF of 30+ for supreme sun protection. The flat lock stitching and raglan sleeves make wearing this shirt on the flats or even around town extremely comfortable. The fact that it is anti-microbial makes this piece perfect for any long weekend in the outdoors. The short sleeve retails for $29.95 and the long sleeve is $34.95
Another great shirt that is stylish yet performance driven is the men’s Mazama Polo with short sleeves. This shirt has many of the same features as the Lost River Tee including the fabric features, but a chest pocket is included as well as a ¼ zip down the center in traditional polo style. This shirt sells for $44.95.
The men’s knitted Rex Technical Tee is lighter than a traditionally woven, vented fishing shirt but still has features ideal for anglers. Elongated sleeves provide hand protection from the sun, as does the small yet functional collar. Fast-wicking, quick-dry, 100% polyester fabric and an inconspicuous pocket on the side round out the features of this shirt for $39.95.
The Cascade Hoody completes the collection of knits for men as a piece that is versatile enough to support multi-sport interests. Perfect for three-season comfort and performance, the Cascade Hoody has zippered hand pockets on the lower body and one upper arm zippered sleeve pocket. When the hood is down, the unique collar will still stand for great sun protection. Consumers can purchase this piece for a reasonable $59.95.
The men’s Copper River Pant is ideal for the angling enthusiast looking for absolute comfort. The 100% nylon rip-stop fabric is fast wicking, quick drying, anti-bacterial and has a UPF rating of 30+ for sun protection. The adjustable waist, 30 and 32 inch inseams, cargo pocket and zippered rear pockets make these pants a perfect fit with plenty of storage room. The Copper River Pant retails for $49.95.
Redington launched its women’s apparel line last year with great success and the pieces added for 2011 make great additions. The flattering women’s Chelan Tee is a long sleeve, stylish and comfortable shirt with unique cuts and attention to detail. The high collar and long sleeves protect sensitive skin from the sun as does the UPF 30+ rating. Fast wicking, quick drying 100% polyester fabric makes this tee performance oriented. A small storage pocket on the right back side of the shirt is perfect for lip balm, a key or even some dry fly floatant. The Chelan Tee retails for $34.95.
The Willamette Wrap is not just another fleece jacket thanks to the unique cut and blend of fabrics to make this a cozy yet functional piece. The easy-to-wear wrap style garment has 50% cotton, 35% polyester and 6% lycra that combine for a cute top that is ultra comfortable. The Willamette Wrap retails for $69.95.
Stylish, performance shorts are something that every woman searches for and needs often striking out due to lack of comfort, fit or features. That will no longer be the case thanks to the Tideland Short for women. This stretchy (91% nylon, 9% spandex) fabric has a 2-way stretch for an athletic fit with fast-wick, quick dry and sun protection. Multiple pockets provide plenty of spots for storage and help make these shorts ideal for any outing. The shorts retail for $39.95.
The last new piece from Redington is a technical rain jacket for women called the Deschutes Rain Jacket. Designed for women with custom trim and a flattering feminine cut, this jacket offers waterproof protection on or off the water. Plenty of features adorn this jacket such as adjustable cuffs and hood, pit zips, and 4-way stretch. The 2.5 layer Red.Storm™ waterproof/breathable fabric is fully seam sealed and the DWR finish is sure to make water roll right off the jacket. Available in Moss and Kingfisher colors, this jacket retails for $149.95.
