If Roark and ourCaste were to go on holiday together they’d be booking a South American jungle trip over a party weekend in Ibiza; they’d be planning a surf trip to Bali rather than a sightseeing tour of Paris. It’s fitting then that they’ve come together to co-design the “Outfitters,” an amphibious short with function at its heart.
The “Outfitters” are for those with a lust for adventure, designed with the vagabond in mind, they’re ideal for on-land excursions but they thrive in the water. They’re undeniably versatile and are made to flourish in all conditions.
The shorts feature comfort fabric and internal mesh pockets; the standout detail though is the waterproof zipper with internal pullout bladder pocket. This nifty little component will keep your phone dry as you trek through hot and humid rainforests and your ice cream money safe as you ride the waves on a tropical island.
Roark and ourCaste clearly understand the requirements of the adventurous traveller. “It’s utilitarian design and functional origins make it a timeless piece, as relevant in your travel arsenal now as it will be 5 years down the line,” they’ve said.
