Henri Lloyd’s New Sailing Clothing Collection for 2018

13th February 2018
Henri Lloyd's new Shadow 3D Racing Range Henri Lloyd's new Shadow 3D Racing Range

Born out of our experience of working with some of the World's leading racing teams including Land Rover BAR and Wild Oats, Henri Lloyd marine clothing has been developed through years of collaborative testing where weight, performance, protection and comfort are all essential components to success.

This new evolution of product design, fabric technology and unique features has been designed to match a new generation of high performance racing boats from Fast 40’s down to one design.

Henri Lloyd’s Shadow 3D Race Jacket, Smock & Salopette racing range is a new generation of superior one design racing shell technology, which is been designed with the benefit of stretch for additional performance. Constructed using Henri Lloyd’s own fabric TPR, a highly breathable, water and wind proof fabric which further benefits from a salt water resistant DWR coating which helps to shed surface water and maintain the performance of the garment. 

The fit of the jacket has been articulated to reduce windage, the design also incorporates stretch panels across the shoulder panel and at the elbow for increased ease of movement. New for Henri Lloyd, the jacket also incorporated a zip off hood with hi-vis center panel, whilst the quick drying rentex mesh inner collar lining offers protection to the face. The asymmetric water resistant front zip features a drainage channel.

The Shadow 3D Race Smock offers a completely new design to the traditional smock and its design properties are a direct result of our partnership with Land Rover BAR. The smock also benefits from stretch panels and the shoulder and elbow, whilst the asymmetric front zip and neck closure system offers a more superior fit. The placement of the fast draining side access stow pocket means that you have access to the pocket even when wearing a buoyancy aid. 

The Shadow 3D Race Salopettes incorporates stretch shoulder panels and further benefits from Velcro tab shoulder adjusters which offer a more personalised fit, recent development and new technologies in fabric reinforcements has resulted in HENRI-PROTEC; a heat applied waterproof film which is proven to be more durable than its predecessors and maintains the durability of the garment for longer.
