You asked for it.

Our EXP54LWZ Lightweight Windbreaker is available now! 

This Lightweight Windbreaker Jacket is super lightweight with water resistant 82gm 100% polyester fabric with zip front closure. Soft to the touch, versatile, and great for layering.  This lightweight windbreaker packs easily and is great for all weather conditions.  Featuring a scuba neck, mesh lined 3 panel hood, and welt pockets.

Independent Trading is known for making high quality blank sweatshirts for screen printers and apparel brands, but we've been making custom jackets for our customers for years.  A few years ago we stocked our first jackets the EXP95NB and EXP99CNB Coaches Jackets and they were well received, next we launched the EXP35SSZ Poly-Tech Soft Shell Jacket, and here we are with the EXP54LWZ Lightweight windbreaker.  We aren't stopping there...  In a few weeks the EXP94NAW Nylon Anorak Jacket will be in stock. 

We are really excited to offer these premium jackets and keep them in stock and available to you at once.  Hopefully these new stock styles will help you and your customers be able to move quickly and have the right product at the right time.
