Find Your Dream Climbing Kit For Cragging this Summer
For people whose passions revolve around the next trip to the crag or the next bouldering session, apparel needs to fit their lives. It needs to be durable and allow for great movement on the rock. It also needs to be comfortable and versatile to transition into everyday use. You need to be able to live in it, because you never know when that next session might happen. New additions to the Spring 2019 Outdoor Research climbing collection exemplify that ethos...
1) Sonora Hoody- New
Making the transition from the crag, the boulder or the trail to everyday life requires not just the right fabric, but the kind of functional and fun design that makes a hoody the one you reach for day after day. The new Sonora Hoody checks all those boxes with a hemp/cotton/spandex fabric that is soft, stretchy and resists odor – a natural property of hemp – combined with clean, good-looking design. It's everything-you-need, nothing-you-don't features include an adjustable hood, front kangaroo pocket and ribbed hem and cuffs. Men's and women's fits.
2) Axis S/S Tee and Tank - New
Organic cotton, hemp and spandex pair together in the men's and women's Axis tops to create durable, breathable shirts with enough stretch for the hardest bouldering problems. Flat-seam construction, the natural odor resistance of hemp fibers, and a strong color palette make the Axis collection a go-to summer choice for cragging or any warm-weather endeavor.
Srp £37 & £27.
3) Quarry Pants and Shorts - New
In the Quarry collection, Outdoor Research used a breathable, stretchy blend of cotton and spandex to create bottoms built for climbers that are up for whatever you throw at them. These lightweight bottoms feature a gusseted crotch, front and rear pockets, a zippered pocket, drawcords on the waistband and ankles, and a brush pocket. Added bonus? Colors like pumpkin, seaglass and peacock help you stand out from the crowd.
Srp £90 & £75
4) Echo L/S Tee & Hoody
From sun soaked climbs to sweltering summer runs, our long sleeved Echo base layers are the smart way to tackle heat, manage moisture and save skin from getting scorched. They're built with UPF15 sun protection, AirVent™ 100% Polyester rapid dry fabric, ActiveFresh™odour control technology, and topped off with anti-chafing flat-seam design.
Srp £45 & £55.
5) Whirlwind Hoody
This abrasion and weather resistant softshell hoody is rated UPF 30+ and covers the gamut in comfort: cragging, multipitch routes and trail runs, it's a must for an adventurer's kit.
6) Direct Route Gloves
Extremely durable and highly breathable polyester/spandex blend throughout, with a goat leather palm and cow split suede overlays on key wear areas. Kevlar stitching adds durability, with the result being an extremely tactile, durable, and breathable glove that will protect your hand against your rope, rack, and rock wall.
