Waterproof Endurance Specialist, Sealskinz, apply their expertise and technology to create a Capsule Collection for the festival goer.

Festival fever is almost upon us! It is nearly the time to get together with friends at Glastonbury, Reading or V, see your favourite acts and enjoy the summer.  However, what has now become tradition and an inescapable part of the festival experience is the good old British weather.  Sunny one minute, torrential rain the next. You never know when the weather will have you running for cover just as your favourite tune comes on.  

Sealskinz, the market leaders in endurance waterproof accessories might just have the answer to your festival troubles, keeping you warm and dry even when the rain starts to pour.  Specialising in outdoor activities, Sealskinz has created a Capsule Collection for festival goers so that they can stay out dancing whatever the weather.

Treading precariously through knee deep mud, between stages is as much part of the festival as the dodgy portaloos.  However, it’s no fun when your only memories are about getting wet and cold.  This is why Sealskinz set about ensuring that festival frolics are as dry and warm as possible.  The Capsule Collection boasts high performance waterproof socks and bobble hats in eye catching colours and patterns that epitomise festival fashion but deliver unbeatable protection from the elements. 

The Thin Cuff socks, available in Mid and Knee- length, are lightweight, waterproof and breathable -  perfect for dancing up a  storm even in a storm! The Knee-length also look fab, peeping out of wellies.  The Merino wool lining will keep your toes toasty and helps any sweat move away from the skin.  With an elasticated ankle and instep the thin cuff socks give loads of support and ensures a comfortable fit.

Completing the collection, the Waterproof Bobble Hat is a classic knitted beanie with a pom-pom. However, this stylish number is also waterproof (– knitwear lovers will know the usual struggles!) This close fitting, comfortable beanie has an ultra-soft feel, keeping your head warm and dry making it the perfect finishing touch to the essential festival outfit. 

The collection is available in either a grey and yellow design or for a real pop of colour there is the orange with pink and black.  Team with denim cut offs, vest, and mac for the freshest festival look and the warmest dry festival experience whatever the weather.  The only problem you will have is where to pitch the tent!
