It’s the last week of August and few things are more obvious than the start of the Football season. Football is as American as apple pie, the Corvette, and Boathouse. In fact, Boathouse has been partnering with Football teams of all levels for more than 25 years!
Football teams nationwide have coveted the Boathouse Gore-Tex Jacket since we started with football outerwear 1994. That first year, we designed and manufactured for two Pro teams. At one game in November 1994, the winning team coaches, from NE, came off the field in their Boathouse GORE-TEX, bone dry after 4 hours of monsoon like rain. The losing team, wearing another brands “rain gear” were soaked to the bone. The quote in the New York Times given by the losing head coach the next day went like this: "I don't know what they are wearing but we better have it here by Tuesday!". And that was it! As word spread like wildfire amongst footballs best, Boathouse grew to design and deliver quality Custom Gore-Tex Outerwear to every Pro team in the country, and nearly every Collegiate D1 FBS, FCS, DII and DIII team.
