RS Hot 3 August

The rugbystore Hot 3 – August 2015

What’s hot this month?

We’re back with our new feature Hot 3 where we highlight the best new stuff you can find at We’ve picked 3 items that deserve to be separated from the pack and this month they are spectacular. We have some of the most sought and asked after rugby gear from the past few years.

This month: Finally ‘all black’ boots, new Wales kit, and the perfect device to help with training.

Check out last month’s Hot 3 here.

We thought the Electric Yellow boots looked great, but the new limited Blackout range from adidas are special. We often hear complaints (especially from forwards) that boots have become too flamboyant for the rugby field and requests for plain black boots came to us every week. Well, adidas are here to address that issue. The commitment to total blackness is instantly striking but still classy. Featuring the same technology found in the electric yellow range (which you can find out more about in our recent SuperTest), the Blackout range has been specifically made for the All Blacks Rugby World Cup campaign. You had better be quick though, it’s a very limited range: once they’re gone, they’re really gone.

As Hot as: A leather car seat on a sunny day. In shorts.

Available from £99.99

Although it seems to have split opinion, we love the new Wales kit. After two long years, Wales fans have been desperate for new kit and Under Armour have delivered. Inspired by Welsh history, the shirt features Oxblood Red and Welsh Gold colour details and utilises the sporting expertise of Under Armour to make a technically superb shirt. Plus, the alternate kit will potentially be one of the best looking kits at the tournament. Sure to please any Wales fan that’s been eager for some new official kit.

As Hot as: A place in the Wales RWC Squad.

Find the whole new Wales range from £44.99

New at is a range of Fitbit training accessories. We’re highlighting the Charge HR here as the ideal accessory to your pre-season training. Monitor your heart rate, workouts and sleep while wearing the Charge HR and using the companion app. The app also helps you track your diet, which is vital during pre-season (Find out more about nutrition during the pre-season in our recent blog post). It does all this whilst also being a stylish watch (coming in a range of colours) that will alert you to calls and won’t need charging for over 5 days at a time. We’re really excited to be working with Fitbit and to find out how much Fitbit can help with your training.

As Hot as: The office when the AC breaks.

See the whole Fitbit range. Starting from £79.99.
