EPISODE 2 - THE GARCIA

The Lab is our content series that delves deep into the design, innovation, and product detail behind our superior sportswear. The Garcia is our signature piece. Anna Graham our Head of Design explains what makes it exceptional and truly one-of-a-kind.

We wanted to create a piece that protects our athletes from the elements during and after training. Therefore we wanted to engineer a fabric that’s both waterproof and windproof, whilst also being lightweight and breathable. So we had to invent it.

The innovation for the piece comes through our uniquely engineered fabrication. We created a soft matt exterior shell using a special Italian polyamide composition, which repels even the heaviest rain on contact, and combined it with a soft-brushed interior fleece that adds a sublime level of comfort.

Everything we design at Castore is fully considered, with the singular aim to improve the performance of our athletes. The Garcia offers capability and comfort that no other hoody or 1/4 Zip in the world offers. Tailored to perfection, for training or leisure, with a clean style. And for that reason, it’s become iconic.
