A UK company specialises in water resistant, windproof and breathable wrist and hand warmers. They are designed specifically for the sports and outdoor recreation markets but the company also has customers who suffer with medical conditions who buy them. They are offering manufacturing agreements to businesses who can supply them with the soft shell textile material to make their wrist and hand warmers.
The founder of this business (based in the East of England) developed the product driven by the need for extra warmth cover for the wrists and hands while performing horse riding activities. Using patented technology the wrist and hand warmers were developed and can be used for a wide range of sporting and recreational activities including shooting, fishing, horse riding, cycling, golf, all dog recreations, quad biking, archery, football and wildlife photography.
The company has also seen a demand for the product from the medical profession who has found the warmers to give comfort to sufferers of arthritis and Reynard’s disease.
The product is selling well and the company has an online shop and attends several fairs and events in the UK and abroad where the wrist and hand warmers are proving to be very popular.
They come in eight sizes and eight colours.
They are looking to identify a new supplier who can provide them with the soft shell fabric the products are made from and offer manufacturing agreements.
The wrist and hand warmers offer the following benefits:
• They are flexible and can be used in any season. They feature a highly breathable membrane and a greater level of insulation for increased warmth without moisture build up.
• They provide great control, grip and comfort in the coldest weather conditions.
• They have extended stretch cuffs to give total protection from all weather conditions.
• They are versatile and very comfortable with high stretch and close fit.
• They allow for unrestricted use of the fingers for easy use of touchscreen devices
The company is driven by their customer’s feedback and always listen to their customer’s needs, whether this is by modifying designs or adding new products to the range.
