Scotland challenged its technical partner Macron to create a kit utilising a fabric that could combine durability with lightness, and provide excellent moisture wicking properties whilst coping with the rigours of test match rugby.
In response the “ARMEVO” fabric was born, a rugby specific fabric that thrives under extreme athletic performance.
All three senior national teams, Scotland, Scotland Women and Scotland 7s, will wear the newly designed Macron kits, which incorporate a new colour scheme in the high performance textile in both the shirts and the shorts.
Following record sales over recent seasons the new designs will incorporate navy, purple and white colouring, traditionally associated with Scottish Rugby.
All three kits can be pre-ordered at shop.scottishrugby.org from Monday 10 July and go on retail sale in the BT Murrayfield store as of Friday 14 July and through all other Macron stockists as of 15 July.
