Calling all rugby fans! Whether you’re cheering on the Boys in Green in the Aviva, Twickenham or the Stade de France, make sure you’re prepared for all unpredictable weathers with these stadium essentials.
When it’s lashing, there’s nothing more uncomfortable than sitting in wet clothes. These bulk-free Columbia Rain Pants can be stuffed into your bag and whipped out as soon as the rain starts to pour. When the clouds clear, The North Face Inlux Triclimate Jacket has a waterproof outer layer and a removable quilted inner jacket to allow you to adapt to changing conditions; this jacket is all you need for your side-line support.
While on the go, keep your money and cards safe and your phone fully charged with the Lifeventure RFiD Charging Wallet. Also ideal for travelling to the away matches (and handy enough here at home!) is this expandable Belt Pouch, which allows you to conceal your wallet and phone. The best part? It fits snugly under your t-shirt, so your only worry is the opposing team getting a try.
The BUFF neck gaiters are a multi-use accessory that keeps you warm in the cold and keeps sweat away if you’re headed to France’s warmer climate. It can be used as a neckerchief, headband, wristband, mask, hair-band, balaclava, scarf, headband, scrunchie, saharaine, pirate cap, beanie and bandana. The options are endless! For an extra layer of head warmth, try out the one of our Barts Beanies.
A hot drink makes that match day commute a bit more relaxing. A good flask is guaranteed to keep your drink and hands as warm as they should be, but what about when you’ve finished up your beverage? The Zippo Handwarmer is here to the rescue, keeping you toasty for up to 12 hours!
If you weren’t lucky enough to grab yourself tickets to the Six Nations and are watching the fixtures from home, these products will work just as well for the more accessible GAA Football League.
