Summer must-haves from our product experts

With summer in full swing in the northern hemisphere, everyone is heading outdoors to enjoy the best of the season. We’ve asked our in-house product design experts to list their favourite products – sharing insight into summer favourites that aren’t just on trend but technically on point.


Laura Howe, Assistant Product Manager, Speedo

“I love the style and print of the Speedo Long Sleeved Paddle Suit and the fact that it’s nice and soft on your skin. The all-in-one suit is the perfect summer item as you can dress it up or down – style it with denim shorts or swim with it in the open water. There’s bust support and the yarn in the fabric is made from 100% post-consumer waste.”

Pete Newton, Senior Design Manager, Endura

“If I’m heading out on the road, my favourite summer product is the Endura Pro SL Lite S/S Jersey – a super lightweight wicking jersey with an eye-catching digitized fade print design and discreet silicone grippers on the inner sleeve cuffs. Perfect if paired with the Pro SL Bibshorts for a sleek, stylish outfit for a sunny day.”

Helen Rocke, Product Manager, Kickers

“The Kickers Knox Lo Buckle sandal is this season’s must have! While it nods to the chunky trend, we’ve opted for an ultra-femme take with a hot pink and cool lilac colour palette. It’s the perfect sandal to celebrate a summer full of festivals.”

Jon Robson, Product Assurance Manager, Berghaus

“My favourite product for this summer has to be the Berghaus VC22 Mid GORE-TEX® Shoes. The shoes use a super lightweight but extremely durable rip-stop fabric in the upper combined with a GORE-TEX® membrane to make them waterproof and breathable. As a mid-level boot, it offers a solution for various activities, while the cuff around the ankle provides extra comfort and support.”

“My 2022 summer is serving on-and-off court classics. My favourite combo this season is preppy polos – the ellesse Vincitoria Polo Shirt​ – and tailored Nadala Shorts for effortless style.​”

Rohaan Nirmalendran, Category and Design Manager, Teamwear, Canterbury

“The Canterbury Phoenix Genesis Elite is my pick for this season and is great for pre-season training. It’s been developed from insights gathered from elite rugby players and is made using lightweight and responsive Pebax® material in the outsole that’s 97% biobased. It will be Canterbury’s most advanced boot to date and addresses a real consumer need for rugby players who have struggled to get the performance and durability in football boots.”

Glen Calloway, Product Development Manager, Berghaus

“My go-to lightweight waterproof jacket is the Berghaus Hyper 140 Waterproof Jacket – it’s amazingly light and packs down incredibly small into its own stuff sack, so it’s easy to stash in a backpack for a summer day hike. It’s completely waterproof, windproof, and highly breathable, making it very versatile for walking, running and biking.”
