Dec '08
In 2008, PUMA introduces its newest category, Women's PUMA Sailing, an exciting new collection of apparel, footwear, and accessories geared towards serious women sailors and fashionable consumers alike.

Whether it's a love for the open sea or the sailing lifestyle it inspires, PUMA Sailing has you covered off shore and on shore with a variety of stylish products. The sport dominated by men, PUMA encourages women sailors to Cruz the world in style!

For Spring Summer 2009, PUMA Sailing continues to take design elements inspired and created by its own PUMA Ocean Racing team that will sail around the world in the Volvo Ocean Race 2008-2009. That's 39,000 Nautical Miles across five continents, four oceans, 11 port stopovers with a crew of 11 in a 70-foot boat.

There are three distinctive lines: Performance for extreme sport enthusiasts; Volvo Ocean Race for recreational and occasional sailors in honor of PUMA's entry into the world's premier around the globe yachting event; and Lifestyle for general consumers who embrace nautical styles.

Key pieces from the PUMA Sailing collection for this season include:

Apparel:
Sailing apparel starts with performance. Out on the open water with punishing waves and brutal winds there is no place to hide. That's why PUMA introduced a line of performance wear for its PUMA Ocean Racing team.

Designed, tested and developed with input from PUMA Ocean Racing and the world's leading sailors, the Off Shore Race Jacket and Off Shore Race Pant provide an outer wind- and waterproof shell with GORE-TEX® membranes to protect sailors from strong winds, heavy rain and splash water.

Highlights on the performance jacket include fluorescent yellow hood adjusts to provide 180º visibility, double cuffs to help sailors stay dry and reflective elements throughout the garment.

Lifestyle:
Pieces include items like the On Shore Blazer and On Shore Pants with nautical detailing and unique stitching for a casual, yet stylish ensemble. The Marina Rugby Shirt features colors inspired by the sea and subtle design prints on the left breast and along the button collar. Other highlights are the Sailing Mac, Sailing Knit and Sailing 2-in-1 Jacket.

Footwear:
PUMA Sailing footwear is highlighted by the Kite L. Made with comfort in mind, attributes include integrated draining systems and hanging loops for quick drying. The Kite L is crafted from water and salt resistant leather and has nonmarking outsoles for wet surfaces.

Accessories:
Characterized by bold colors, the iconic PUMA Red, visible branding with the PUMA Form strip and minimal hardware. With waterproof features from its zippers to external pocket, the Perform Barrel Bag borrows its shape from an ocean buoy and is visible, durable, and functional in extreme conditions.

In the Volvo Ocean Race collection, you fine the quintessential sportslifestylebags, merging style with a performance heritage, the Barrel Bag appeals to recreational and occasional sailors, and active urban dwellers who dream of the sea.
