THE MANUAL - The Essential Guide For Men - Takes a Look at Thunderbolt

The Manual - the essential guide for men.

Born and built in the Oregon city of Portland, the sustainable performance apparel company, Thunderbolt Sportswear, knows exactly what its customers look for each season. How, might you ask? Because the team behind the brand also happen to be customers of the lines themselves. Void of outside input from investors or shareholders, Thunderbolt Sportswear keeps every customer need in mind when designing new releases, an aspect of the business which shines in its latest collection.

Though much of what Thunderbolt offers falls into the category of “technical” clothing, every piece — T-shirt, pant, sock, or otherwise — is perfectly casual for any occasion. Whether you decide to tackle a day’s worth of hiking trails or opt for a simple bike ride around town, Thunderbolt’s lineup has you covered to stay comfortable and stylish. It’s no wonder the brand is so deeply rooted in Portland, a Pacific Northwest city which wholly embraces its eclectic environment.

Thunderbolt Sportswear Baseline Henley - 100% Merino 18.5 Micron 170GSM

Comprised of a lineup of soft-shell clad jeans, a number of Merino wool henleys and T-shirts, and a selection of Merino wool socks, Thunderbolt Sportswear may only boast a handful of essentials but each is every bit as critical as anything deserving of someone’s wardrobe. What makes the brand’s clothing stand out from the pack starts with how the company sources its materials. By first seeking out the best performance fabrics at textile mills across the globe, Thunderbolt Sportswear then puts needle to thread in manufacturing facilities near Portland — not on the other side of the world.

This focus on staying close to its Portland roots for the manufacturing process feeds directly into the brand’s goal of supplying only the highest quality apparel to its customers. Intent on inspiring adventure — be it planned or spontaneous — the brand backs up its vision by offering a stylish collection that’s comfortable, durable, and entirely fit for any excursion.

The Best Commuter Pants for Cyclists - Men's Journal

These are your go-to commuter pants during cold, tough weather. Rugged Schoeller Dryskin soft-shell fabric comes with sleet-slaying NanoSphere treatment. Built for unapologetic protection and free-spinning knees, the rest of the pant delivers no-frills waist closure, a zipped fly, and patch pockets, along with one zipped rear pocket. But the big sell here is that the jeans are far warmer than most. You'll be laughing in the face of major downpours, Westerlies, and splash-inducing traffic.

Thunderbolt Sportswear jeans

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.

  • Plus points: durable, comfortable, weather-resistant; male's sizes only
  • Worth noting: one rear pocket has a hidden security zip, useful to guard against pickpockets
  • Cost: $200
  • Rating: quality 9/10; practicality 9/10; value 8/10
