Blurr athlete Natalie Berry's thoughts on Blurr
'I have been supported by Blurr for almost a year now and am pleased to say that i am really impressed by the quality and style of their clothing. Not only are the clothes tough and hard wearing for heavy use both in training at the wall and when performing out on rock, but the look and feel of the range has attracted a lot of interest and always manages to look casual yet athletic. In contrast to the typical khaki brown/green colours so often used in climbing wear, Blurr has dared to be different with a rainbow of funky colours - bright greens, oranges, reds and pinks. These colours really make you stand out from the crowd.
Perhaps my favourite Blurr item is the Betsy Jean, which I wear not only to the crag and wall but also around town and when travelling. Before trying out the Betsy Jean I had previously been sceptical about the so-called "climbing jeans", believing them to be too thick, heavy and restricting like normal everyday jeans. However, when putting them to the test in Siurana, they proved my doubts wrong - they were lightweight, hard wearing and stretchy without being too hot to climb in with the warm temperatures. Stylish dark denim in colour, the Betsy Jean can easily be worn casually on a night out with friends or whilst cranking at the crag - a real all-round performer.'
