The TRU team make a Top 3 pick of Wales and Osprey’s backrower Justin Tipuric’s ‘Stay At Home Rugby Essentials’ from Canterbury
We kick off the review with our top pick from Canterbury's recent 'Rugby Essentials' range. The Mens Vapodri Hoodie combines their VapoDri technology with a lightweight action-ready garment which is ideal for running, gym workouts, training or just caual wear. It's a relatively tight fitting top, but with the breathability needed for those more perspiring activities. The drawcords offers a little more protection, and the large pocket at the front gives you the options of holding lighter items throughout your sessions. The orange and black colour scheme works extremely well, along with the printed Canterbury wording down the left-hand sleeve in a satin finish to complete the look.
All in all this hoody is the perfect addition to the lockdown wardrobe: ideal for homeworkouts, running or social distanced walks!
Next up in our Top 3 is the 'Retro hooped jersey', and it's a step away from the training hoody. Designed for more causal usage the jersey is a nod at the retro rugby playing tops of old. Its' simple stripped look means it can be paired easily with any pair of jeans or joggers to add a little more rugby supporter to your getup. It features a classic look collar, rubber buttons and Herringbone tape on the placket (material strip underneath the buttons) giving you an a style that will last plenty of trips to the game during the colder months. The fabric weight will keep you warm in and also gives you a real sense of quality, along with the aestheticly pleasing Canterbury logo which has been fittingly embroidered to mirror those rugby jerseys of old.
A fairly pricey option, but one that will last the test of time, and provide a comfortable, cosy accompaniment to those supporting away days.
Lastly we've thrown in a pair of shorts to conclude our Top 3 Canterbury Rugby roundup. These lightweight men's shorts are another example of adaptable trainingwear, once again they are perfect for gym workouts, rugby training sessions or outdoor activities. The casual fit allows plenty of breathablility with the added VapoDri technology keeping excess moisture away from you as you get up a sweat. Stretching and flexing are done with ease as the elasticated waistband and pockets warp to fit your body's movements, aswell as keeping a level of security needed during training.
A great price for a pair of shorts that can be worn in almost any training situation!
