Since 1976, Boathouse has become synonymous with quality rowing unis, trou and outerwear proudly handcrafted in the home of the first ever regatta in 1835, Philadelphia, USA. Named after Philadelphia’s iconic Boathouse Row and founded by Olympic Rower John Strotbeck, it’s obvious that Boathouse is passionate about Rowing and our customers are passionate about us because we’ve been providing the best American-Made Rowing Unis, Trou and Outerwear on the market today since 1976.
With so many imitators saturating the rowing market, here are the top 5 reasons that Boathouse unis and trou are the best our customers will ever own:
5) You Just Can’t Beat Our New Durastretch FabricYou’re probably asking yourself right now “what the heck is Durastretch?” Durastretch is breathable, comfortable, moisture wicking and lightweight fabric that has 4-way stretch that MOVES with your body while sustaining its quality. It’s resilient and easy to care for. Basically, you can’t beat this fabric – it’s amazing. Bonus: Although it feels extremely lightweight due to the way it’s knit, it is still heavier than other unis on the market today. This fabric was made to support your body preform at its peak. Last but not least, we love that Durastretch Fabric is American-made from American-made yarn. #merica
4) We Care About Your Butt
Rowers Butts love our unis. Our trou is lined in the back with a light, breathable knit because no one likes a sweaty butt. To make things even better for your backside, we’ve removed the rear seam so you don’t chafe when spending hours in the boat or on the erg.
3) Designed With Your “Thunder Thighs" In MindOur uni’s and trou are designed with elastic threads and flat seams to avoid seam popping and to keep your uni looking and performing great–no matter how often you’re flexin' on ‘em. We understand how strong you are, thread popping is an issue, we gotcha. These flat, elastic seams also help negate chafe and add additional comfort (who wants seams that protrude? Save the sticking out for your thighs)
2) Everything is Made Under One Roof in Philadephia, USAAll Boathouse unis (and all products in general) are made in-house, under one roof, by our quality team of hardworking, passionate Philadelphians (Learn more about some of our employees -- Tony and Wilfredo aka "Big Willie" )
