Kerrits Announces New Pocketed Riding Apparel Line
English Apparel Press Release
HOOD RIVER, OREGON – Kerrits, Inc. announces its innovative new pocket line of equestrian apparel. What does every rider need at one time or another? Pockets. For identification, for car keys, for the ubiquitous cell phone. Kerrits has come to the rescue with a pocketed line of apparel clothing… including the innovative Kerrits Pocket Cap, Sport and Windproof Pocket Tights, and Pocketed HorseCord Vest. Each of these new pieces of apparel sports pockets designed-in with convenience and comfort in mind.
New for 2004, the Kerrits HorseCord Vest offers warmth, durability and great style in one versatile garment. It is tailored in state-of-the-art bi-component fabric composed of soft, breathable microfleece and a windproof membrane fused to a durable stretch outer layer. This offers the body-heat protection of three layers in one, without the extra bulk. The HorseCord vest has shaped seams for a flattering fit, hidden zipper pockets, stretch horse binding accent, new athletic shaped armhole and a rider cut to compliment breeches.
Pocket Sport Tight
These new hybrid tights are suitable for arena, field and trail! The Wicktek fabric offers a durable quick-dry outer surface, moisture-wicking inner fibers, four-way stretch, and an antibacterial finish. The drawcord waistband offers an extended range of fit, belt loops can be used for a more tailored look, and 8” deep discreet side pockets furnish convenient storage.
Windproof Pocket Tight
Our new windproof pocket tight designed in Windpro fabric blocks 98% of the wind but allows 2% to recirculate in the soft inner fleece, aiding with rapid moisture evaporation. Keeping you warm and dry.
Kerrits is a nationally recognized manufacturer of high quality performance oriented equestrian apparel. They have been headquartered in Hood River since their founding in 1986. Today, Kerrits Performance Equestrian Activewear can be found in leading retail stores throughout the United States.
Kerrits was established when competitive athlete Kerri Kent began working out of her home designing swimwear for windsurfers in the Columbia Gorge. Because of its supportive and functional nature, her swimwear was met with great enthusiasm from not only windsurfers, but from other water sport athletes as well. Requests from specialty retailers, such as Nordstrom, prompted her first retail store in downtown Hood River. Kent’s passion for horses then led to the creation of an equestrian division in 1992.
Although Kerrits has expanded over the years and is now an international company, Kerrits Hood River headquarters handles all of the designing, manufacturing, distribution and business operations. Kerrits commitment to customer satisfaction and fashion is evident in the continual pursuit of new fabrics, trends and technology, and is supported by Kerrits unconditional “24 Kerrits” Guarantee.
