These things we know:
If you’re traveling abroad for 1 month, 3 months, or a year and you don’t want to be burdened with baggage, what do you bring? Here’s how to go from beaches in Thailand to hiking Carpathian mountains, and still roll into a Michelin-starred restaurant at night looking like you belong:
When it comes to travel clothing, cotton no longer makes the cut. You need material that can regulate temperature, wick moisture, dry quickly, and control odor. But most importantly you need to look good. This means clothes that are well designed, wrinkle free, and ideally stain resistant. Sadly, no material or company does it all, but several manufacturers have taken merino wool and synthetic blends to incredible new heights.
Yeah, they’re crazy expensive. But also crazy worth it. Especially if they’re the only pair of pants you bring. They’re breathable, dry quick, are wind and water resistant, and they look good. They even have a hidden zippered pocket just big enough for a passport. And did I mention they are sustainably produced?
I like gray because of it’s versatility in style and won’t overheat like black in direct sunlight.
Weight: approx. 16oz
Material: Double woven blend of sustainably produced nylon, polyester, & spandex; Schoeller®-dryskin and NanoSphere® treatment for wind and water resistance.

For active travel in cool climates Thunderbolt jeans are an excellent choice. Despite the ‘jeans’ tag, they’re not denim, but a technical fabric which is wind-resistant, water-resistant and dirt-resistant on the outside while comfortable on the inside thanks to its soft lining and four-way stretch. So you can wear them all day, sightseeing in the city or hiking in the hills, and they still look good when you go to a bar in the evening.
