Canterbury is the best kit maker by a country mile, playing kit is great but the training kit is brilliant. Most on here whinged like mad when we had Canterbury though so I don’t think anyone can win!!

Well, they did give us “the bib”. And a black stripe. And horizontal pin-stripes. And the orange monstrosity. And the white diamond quilt. And introduced polyester-cotton “classic” shirts

Other than that, most excellent. :smt003

I quite liked the tiger striped ones! I know a lot of traditionalists didn’t, but the quality of the playing kit is top class, and the training kit. Most of the training kit was really smart, and the whole range was widely available. I thought the second shirt (the predominantly green with the red, black and white) was actually pretty cool too!

I quite liked them too, but IIRC people complained about having to deal with CCC’s generic shirt patterns.

Whoever it is, the club will never win.

As generally a leisure item, it doesn't matter what the quality is like if the design is not liked. People will buy "nice" stuff (very subjective I know) even if the quality is average, but if they don't like the design they won't buy, full stop. Personally I liked the tiger stripes in all colours, but loathed the bib with a passion. As for the rest of their designs, nah, not for me. Saved me a fortune, not buying any Canterbury stuff. With half a wardrobe full of Tigers shirts, there were other benefits - more use of older shirts, not having to find room for yet more shirts, getting out of the habit of buying the new kit each year because I always had etc.

The only Canterbury kit worth buying was the black strip.

What opinions do people have of Samurai as a kit provider? Exeter and Doncaster are two clubs using them - not aware of others.

As long as its designs fit the club’s ethos, and not some of Samurai’s occasionally “out there” designs, no problem at all.

Obviously some people would have a problem with the fact it isn’t a brand you’d find in JD Sports, but hey-ho.

Both the home and away shirts in 13/14 were very good imo as was the home shirt in 14/15.

Totally agree! The black and charcoal tiger stripes European shirt is probably my favourite kit we have ever had!

I was really happy, having worn Canterbury kit all my life, when they at last produced Tigers’ kits and other items of clothing. Yes, I too didn’t get some of the designs (eg the bib one and orange one)but was pleased Canterbury brought an end of paying £70 for anything like player quality kit. I still wear Canterbury, waterproof tracky bottoms from some 25 years ago and they still look very good. Although I didn’t like last year’s England shirt, the previous kits, polo shirts etc are//were excellent quality. Last year’s kit and other clothing was poor quality and expensive: I only bought the home shirt as I liked the design but the material was poor. Adidas can produce good quality kit but in today’s competitive age any kit maker ought to produce decent kit at a reasonable price.
I did really like the shirt when we won in a Paris v Stade. I look forward to seeing what the season’s shirt is like and maybe it will be available before the season starts!
