NEW YORK, Jan. 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Arctix, based in Locust Valley, NY has teamed with the NFL to produce the officially licensed Arctix Tail-Gaiters, The Ultimate Tailgate Pants. Tail-Gaiters are 100% waterproof, windproof, and stain proof, and contain handy tailgating features such as a bottle opener and beverage holders for use in both standing and seated positions. Tail-Gaiters also feature full side zippers so they can be worn over all other types of pants. Tail-Gaiters feature NFL team-colored striping down the sides of the pant legs and team logos on the front thigh. Tail-Gaiters are available now for 31 NFL teams, including the Super Bowl-contending Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos.
Arctix Tail-Gaiters are the brainchild of Alpha 6 Distributions' (parent company of the Arctix brand) CEO Matt Bruderman, and former NFL great and current sports radio and television celebrity, Boomer Esiason, who is working with Arctix on the NFL version of the Tail-Gaiter.
"I know what it's like to be cold and wet inside an NFL stadium," said Esiason. "With Tail-Gaiters, fans can stay warm and dry no matter what the weather brings and just enjoy the game."
"We are constantly striving to provide fans of the NFL with innovative, quality products to enhance the NFL fan experience, and wearing Tail-Gaiters is a great way to show team pride and be protected from the elements while cheering inside the stadium or tailgating in the parking lot," said Leo Kane, the NFL's Senior Vice President of Consumer Products.
"As snow sports' leading supplier of snow pants, Arctix is the natural industry player to bring The Ultimate Tailgate Pants to NFL fans, and this year's first cold-weather Super Bowl serves as the perfect launching point for this exciting new product," said Matt Bruderman. "After the game, you just zip them off for the car ride home or your post-game partying in New York City."
