FROM ROCK TO ROAD: 3RD ROCK'S CORE CLIMBING COLLECTION DOESN'T DISAPPOINT

The 21/22 core collection from 3RD ROCK pairs freedom to move with sustainability - inspired by forests and made with recycled and up-cycled fabrics alongside soft organic cotton

The climbers behind the 3RD ROCK brand have taken their trademark vibrancy and understanding of the human form to new levels within its Core Climbing Collection. 

From rock to road, the designs have been styled with both contemporary and classic looks in mind - and with the addition of new 4way stretch Eco-MORPH Denim, this wardrobe works anytime, anywhere.  

The smarter, more innovative-cut collection allows garments to look better, feel better and most importantly, perform better whilst leaving a minimal footprint on the planet. Each piece is cut to accentuate and enhance your strength and ability.

The whole Collection takes its inspiration from the outdoors. In line with the brand's ethos to protect the environment. It embodies the spirit and vibrancy of this natural habitat, reflecting linear and tropical patterns and tonal colours of trees, plants and bright-coloured flowers. 

ONTO THE GEAR...

LEGGINGS & PANTS

3RD ROCK core favourites such as the 'soft as butter' staple THOR and TITAN leggings and BATABOOM unisex pants are central to the range, offering full range of movement and super soft organic cotton against the skin.

Brand new to the collection is MATILDA, meaning 'strong in battle' and that's exactly what these leggings are. Shape-enhancing and stylish, these performance adventure leggings are tough and durable with double layer fabric on the legs and rear to shrug off those slips and scrapes.

DENIM

A first for 3RD ROCK is its move into denim using fully sustainable processes that use air instead of water to create varying levels of 'wash' effects. The unique 3RD ROCK EcoMORPH denim is ultra comfortable and durable with a 4-way stretch. A new washing system uses laser and eco techniques to increase productivity, reduce water and energy usage and banish damaging emissions and waste, guaranteeing ZERO contamination. 

Available in styles for men and women, there's a cut to suit everyone - from GAIA mom-fit and MARPLE slim fit jeans for ladies, to the new 'carrot cut' FITZ, that can be worn with or without a turn up, and finally MERCURY tapered jeans - 3RD ROCK's  signature style cut finally made in denim. Wear them climbing or meeting mates, these styles truly embody the rock to road designs for 21/22.

CLIMBING TROUSERS

Playful patterns and comfortable organic cotton raise the bar on climbing must-haves, like the women's ASTER trousers that are cut to allow for maximum flexibility and comfort, whichever way you need to move. 

Improvements and reinforcements in the HIRO and NOVA lines also see new designs hitting the rails with HIRO shorts, soon to be released HIRO trousers, and the SUPERNOVA climbing pant. Stronger than ever, they are complete with reinforced knee and bum patches and feature a banana cut to provide more room around the knees. These styles also include more practical pockets, meaning your valuables – even your phone – are more secure.

TEES, VESTS & HOODIES

Too many to mention in one place, 3RD ROCK does vests and tees to suit everyone. Made from its famous soft organic cotton, each one features an iconic, hand drawn design. Our favourites include the WINNIE CLIMBEAR, where a donation goes to Climbers Against Cancer with each purchase, the Craftevan VENNY that inspires nostalgic vibes of road trips and adventure.  The JACK tee is also a best-seller, which features an eye-catching 'Climber to the bone' skull and crossbones design and also comes as a vest.

Then for when things get chilly 3RD ROCK hoodies are awesome to throw on top. Check out the ZIPPY SUN that encompasses incredible mountain-scapes and the texture of trees. Find inspiration to seek hills, valleys, and live with adventure through the dynamic SUN print . Take one with you to the crag, throw in your bag for the gym or wear for early morning jogs; this zip top combines ultimate comfort and range of motion with ease of wear.

BRAS & SWIMWEAR

The EQUINOX sports top is a colourful and supportive sports bra made from recycled fishing nets. Its high cut neckline will cover a headstand with no embarrassment, while its seam-free, wide back straps provide ultimate comfort, smoothing out back bulges, giving a cooling air- flow and framing that strong toned back.

Pair this with TIDE - new bootay-flattering bikini bottoms. With a smoothing, high cut that flatters when worn as a swimsuit - or under a wetsuit - these bottoms are quick drying, and make a perfect bikini set with the EQUINOX sports top for deep water solo, wild swimming or a day in the surf.  

Upcycled from the end of fabric rolls, both EQUINOX and TIDE boast Highline, 80s retro, topographic and Botangle Tropical prints, mixed with funky neons in orange, pink and yellow as well as bright and beautiful 'Maliblue'. 

Other high performing bras within the 3RD ROCK range are SATURN and LUNA that both provide comfort that's out of this world. Made from organic cotton for the smooth soft finish that only a natural fibre can offer, they hold and lift the breasts, and keep them looking heavenly. Both bras feature extra wide straps, to give ultimate shoulder comfort and back support, meaning it can be worn all day – and night.

The PEACE bralette is slightly different, and very clever. Super soft and ultra comfortable, it features a new strap system that combines a soft cotton halter neck with a racer back elastic 'anchor' to disperse pressure away from the neck and into the underbust elastic.

SHORTS

For the boys, 3RD ROCK's MOFO shorts are so versatile and colourful it's tempting to buy the full set. These shorts are made from 100% recycled polyester. They feature a bias cut crotch for endless range of movement, three pockets - including a secure elastic bound phone pocket - and an engineered elastic waistband with internal puller cord for security that keep the shorts on the hip, even with heavy things in the pockets. The MOFO shorts also double up for swimming trunks. They are quick drying so fit perfectly into an action packed lifestyle: Climb, Deep Water Solo, Swim, Surf, Run... Repeat!

HIRO and BUTTRESS offer a shorter version of the full length versions previously mentioned, whereas TINA is a clever shortened spin off of the bestselling TITAN leggings - designed to increase performance, while staying light, tight, and cool. 

And what do 3RD ROCK do with surplus fabric and trims? ACCESSORISE!

Nothing goes to waste. 3RD ROCK has taken end-of-roll fabrics, paired with surplus zips and tie-dyes to create a cylinder-shaped mini barrel bag - the Dippy Doo - the most unique chalk bag on the market. Each one is different so you'll never see the same one twice.

Also available in a double hand dipper - the BARRY BARREL - each bag has access via the big secure zip pocket with a ring hook for keeping valuables inside. A soft fleece interior and deep sturdy elastic brush holder is incorporated and each one comes with a prussic belt.

Finally, we want to tell you about the 3RD ROCK REPAIR CLUB - for when a slip or scrape proves too much for your clothes. It happens but when it does, patch up and fix up with an upcycled Repair Club patch, made from organic cotton trouser leg offcuts. There's full details on the website as to how to do it properly too, so you can't go wrong. 

Sustainable from day one, the 3RD ROCK core collection uses only organic cotton or recycled and up-cycled fabrics.  

Founder Jessica Mor says, "We explore the changing style directions and consult with  3RD ROCKERS from across the world to evolve our classic collection to be on-point with what climbers want in their clothing.  I've incorporated higher waistbands, tapered legs and I am starting to introduce more androgynous styles in a unisex offering to appeal to a more diverse audience with our range."

The full 3RD ROCK Climbing Collection is available HERE. Prices start from £12.50.
