Van den Kommer Sr. is succeeded by his sons Peter and Jaap Jr. AGU has built up a beautiful awards cabinet. Still, there is one prize that made AGU "big". That was in 1976 award for the best rain suit. The Ministry of Roads and Waterways hosted a tongue-in-cheek competition to encourage biking: "Who can design the best rain suit?" Out of 87 submissions, most of them from the world of fashion, AGU's rain suit wins the competition. The prize was awarded by the minister at that time, Mr Westerterp. The jury's report: "At a first glance, this rain suit is not distinguishable from a conventional rain suit. But upon closer inspection, it turns out to be extremely well considered in both details and finish." This is the beginning of an extraordinary boost for the AGU brand and for the company. More than 1 million Agu-Sport rain suits are sold throughout Europe. No one can ignore AGU any longer, even the royal family.
