Thermal Tech Top
Very useful in the colder seasons.
Can be offered in both long and short
sleeve versions, with long sleeve
tops recommended for warmth
during cold winter outings.
Worn as outerwear; wind resistant,
impressively water resistant (but not
quite waterproof) and breathable.
Can also be worn casually.
Like the tech top but for legs, made
of a light, wicking fabric.
Recommended for keeping warm
during the coldest months.
The basic essential Lycra
all-in-one. Worn all year round as
can be layered over thermals (like
tech top) in winter and worn alone
in the summer.
Why Buy Kit?
Technically, club kit is very useful for training and especially for racing.
Almost all the club's rowers train in club kit, on offer are all sorts of water
resistant and breathable outerwear as well as thermal tops and leggings
to keep us warm in the cold Winter months. Rowing kit is form fitting and
leaves no billowy fabric to get caught up in, and so is essential for racing.
Aesthetically, it works as our uniform; people wear their college kit with
pride, and a well kitted crew say that they mean business.
Importantly we are sponsored by Morrison & Foerster, and all kit will
have our sponsor's logos which we will be obliged to advertise when we
What should I buy?
We don't expect people to buy everything. While a full complement of kit is
great in an ideal world, kit is expensive.The Committee recommends that
people buy a Unisuit as the basic essential bit of kit. The unisuit is the only
piece of lycra with the LCBC Logo, and our sponsors logo making it
essential for racing.
What happens with ordering?
Kit is usually ordered together at the end of Michaelmas term, to arrive
shortly after the beginning of Hilary Term. Scope may arise later on in
the year for further orders if demand is there - the Committee will keep
members posted if this is the case.
For any further information on kit at LCBC or questions about the costs
of kit, please don't hesitate to get touch with the Secretary.
