Meet Gordon!

This year, Silipos joined rugby’s finest athletes at the annual Six Nations Championship featuring its newest product addition, the cooling dermal pad. The Six Nations competition is one of the oldest rugby tournaments in Europe, showcasing six teams fighting for the grand slam, including England, Wales, Ireland, Scotland, France and Italy.

Gordon Reid, well-known Scottish international rugby player for the London Irish, joined Scotland’s fight for the victory. As a seasoned player and  athlete, participating in high contact sports makes him no stranger to bumps, bruises and even brakes. With practice 8 hours a day and five days a week, there is an average of 30 to 40 tackles taken by the team at one time, including weekend hits.

Reid teamed up with Silipos in wearing the new Cooling Dermal Pads at the 2019 Six Nations Tournament to help protect him his body from abrasion, friction and bruising during this high performance game.

Always fit for comfort first, the Silipos Cooling Dermal Pad was created as a lightweight and flexible addition to traditional sports kits. “I like how they stick and move with you,” Reid adds. “They are lighter than normal padding and you can put them anywhere.”
