Lansdown was lucky enough to appear in the "Tried and tested" section of November's Equine Magazine for not just one but two of our products. Our Heavyweight Shooting Jumper was "Very Highly Commended" and our ladies Hedley Gilet was "Highly Commended". To read the articles in full, follow this link and check out page 23. But, to read the testers' comments, read our precis below!
Rob Williams, testing our heavyweight shooting jumper, said: "I knew this jumper would be good quality, but have to say, was more than impressed when it arrived. Lansdown, based in Wales, knit their own products and this heavyweight has three layers of high performance fabric and is tightly knitted with double ply yarn making it extremely hardwearing. The lining is 100% acrylic, very comfortable next to the skin. As soon as you pick the jumper up it just feels quality and is certainly as warm as toast to wear - no need to wear lots of layers. The bonus is it's machine washable at 40 degrees C, so go on, treat yourself and you wont be disappointed."
Testing our Hedley Gilet in red chilli, Anne Chappelhow said: "Worn outside on cooler days as an extra layer and also in the house when I was feeling a little cool sitting around doing office work. A practical, padded warmer, with front zip/press-stud fastening and two useful outer zip pockets. Machine washable. The shape was more flattering than the standard straight up and down designs. Not overly padded so easy to wear and on especially cold mornings, worn underneath a lightweight jacket for that extra toasty feeling. It is still looking new and the chilli red is jolly splash of colour on the dull days. A useful addition to anyone's wardrobe, especially when working around horses and dogs! Particularly fond of the zip pockets - very handy for keeping my keys and phone secure , as I have a tendency to misplace these!"
Thank you very much to both testers for your kind comments, we are glad you like our products!
