Rooster Race Armour knee pads
If you’re a dinghy sailor or a foredeck type of person then these are for you. If you’ve ever knelt on a deck fitting or even a bit of a rope awkwardly then you’ll know the pain and damage this can do to your knees. I wish these were available 22 years ago when I first damaged my own knee whilst dinghy sailing. I live with that injury to this day, so get some of these and you’ll thank yourself in the future for looking after those delicate hinges half way down your legs.
Long length knee pads with Rooster MISRA foam that extend down to protect part of the shin. A streamlined fit with a silicon rubber elastic webbing strip at the top band and above the calf maintains the position of the knee pads, whilst an additional elastic strap is positioned just below the knee to further secure the pad in place.
These are snug fit meaning they are unlikely to ride up, down or swivel round when you need them the most.
available in Junior, Small, Medium, Large
Rooster Aquafleece Hoodie
This Rooster Hoodie is oversized, warm, lightweight and water resistant. It combines a soft, durable and flexible PU outer coating with a comfortable fleece inner layer to provide an instant heat boost for cold sports. The stretchy waterproof fabric moves with you, feature rich with adjustable cuffs and hem, large front kangaroo pockets and a drawstring hood cord.
Just the job if you’ve recently taken up wild swimming and fancy something warm to throw over you when you get out of the water. Also good for dinghy sailors and paddleboarders. Don’t let a bit of cold weather stop you.
