The innovative new WRU Kit has been built with Under Armour’s signature technologies which enable peak performance in all weather conditions; including sweat-wicking HeatGear® fabric, to help keep players cool and dry, and ArmourGrid™ technology for light, durable strength.
As well as being technologically advanced, Under Armour have also entwined the shirt in heritage. It features ‘Oxblood’ detail across the shoulders. Oxblood was used in buildings like the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, on the Llangollen canal, where it was added to the lime mortar used to bind the masonry together following ancient superstition that the blood of a strong animal would strengthen a building or structure. A trim of ‘Welsh Gold’, inspired by the highly prized rarity once found in Welsh mines, also adorns the shirt. And then there is the dragon scale print, constructed from ArmourGrip™ Technology, which aids in catching and securing the ball.
