Protection, style and comfort

Acadia II

Regatta Professional continues to create products that businesses can rely on for protection, style and comfort. Contemporary designs and expert technology form collections where workers look and feel great.

Autumn/ winter 2019 sees Regatta’s main brands – Tactical Threads and Regatta Professional – develop even further, with Professional pushing the product development boundaries.

Professional’s five new jackets and two new bodywarmers are made PFC-free, providing an environmentally conscious outfit for professional workers. The new products are also fully brandable with no external branding making them perfect for embroidery, vinyl, screen printing and transfer options.

The new Firedown is a down-touch jacket, coming in corporate colours and a cire finish for a striking polished look. The main fabric weight is a light 37gsm, making it a comfortable piece to wear and great for autumn. With Warmloft insulation, wearers are guaranteed to keep heat locked in. The Firedown is also available as a bodywarmer. The easily compressible bodywarmer is a great transeasonal piece.

When autumn starts to give way to winter, working professionals can benefit from the new Ablaze 3 layer softshell jacket. The three layers create a super breathable jacket that’s both warm and waterproof. It’s available in corporate colours, as well as French blue for a bright alternative. Like the Firedown jacket, the Ablaze is also available as a bodywarmer, providing a happy medium between warmth and agility.


Technological advances are not the only developments Regatta Professional has made for AW19. The new Limestone jacket cuts a smart design, taking professional style to a brand new level. The jacket is designed with an on-trend marl fabric and is detailed with flat, streamlined pockets to give this jacket a cool, corporate edge. It’s perfect for office workers keen to present a professional image.

The new Bifrost offers a stripped back, smart feel just like the Limestone, but with added protection from the elements. The lightweight Bifrost comes with Thermo-guard insulation, discreet reflective piping and adjustable cuffs.

A brand new premium softshell completes the new product development for Regatta Professional AW19. The Northway is made with a high-pile fleece-backed softshell featuring Thermo-guard insulation and a water-repellent finish. The black and iron colourways provide a smart outer layer. Alongside these new developments Professional continues to improve upon industry favourites making sure to always deliver quality products.


Moving away from the office and towards construction, Tactical Threads has taken its brand even further. The Tactical Threads collection, created in 2018, takes the best materials and cuts them into the most stylish designs in the building industry. Bridging the gap between style and performance, Tactical Threads takes the wearer from the builders’ yard to the bar.

The ‘site to street’ aspect has had a hugely positive response in the workwear industry.  As well as jackets, work trousers and boots, the on-trend workwear brand delivers a fantastic range of safety-led hi-vis wear.There’s nothing else like Tactical Threads on the market and the brand’s commercial potential was apparent from its inception. Just a few months after products went to market, a sponsorship deal was formed with Warrington Wolves.

As well as a fantastic sponsorship deal, captain of the Warrington Wolves team, Chris Hill who also owns his own plumbing business, agreed to become the official ambassador of Tactical Threads. Chris has been enthusiastic in endorsing the brand, which is a real milestone for the northern B2B giant.

Despite early success, Tactical Threads has not rested on its laurels. The commercial achievement has been matched with a second wave of product development. AW19 sees new stylish jackets packed with protective features, and accessories including on-trend braces – perfect for keeping trousers secure around the waist. New safety specs are also available in a range of styles to suit different construction environments.

As a collective, Regatta Professional focuses on creating products that look fantastic and perform exceptionally. Regatta has the foresight to dial up or dial down technological advances or trendy edges to suit the industry.

This flexible and proactive business positioning lends itself perfectly to the wide workwear industry. With everything from base layer options, extensive legwear including shorts and jackets designed to protect from the harshest of winters, not to mention hi-vis safety wear and accessories, Regatta Professional continues to lead the way in workwear for all industries.
