Gorpcore style: when the peaks meet the city

You no longer need to head to the mountains to wear those garments you love so well, those very garments which were considered a bit ‘weird’ to wear in the city until recently. In the end, comfort and functionality are no longer confined to one place. Big cities - and the not so big ones - seem to be full of this new Gorpcore style, in other words, taking clothing generally designed for the mountains (fleece jackets, windbreakers, trekking pants, etc.) and adapting them to your day-to-day style. Gorpcore brands such as The North Face, Nike ACG, Patagonia or Napapijri have recently crept into our closets and match perfectly with the rest of our apparel.

The importance of Gorpcore

Gorpcore clothing and the materials used to make it have evolved over the years. Thanks to the proliferation of outdoor sports, this growth has accelerated to such an extent that brands have developed new fabrics and innovative materials to further improve the performance of their outdoor garments. Consequently, this technical evolution has a direct impact on the enhancement of specific garments for each type of activity, such as outdoor pants, outdoor jackets, outdoor sweatshirts and trekking clothing. At SVD UAE, we have taken into account the essential functions of technical mountain clothing (protection, comfort, and safety) to offer you a selection of outdoor clothing that brings together all the best from Gorpcore essentials.

What should rain pants have?

Choosing the right trekking pants is more complicated than it may seem. First, it is important to take into account the climate or the season of the year to know if we need shorts, long pants or 2-in-1's. Secondly, we must be aware of the weather conditions we are going to face, that's why we need waterproof pants (which are usually used for humid or high mountain climates with frequent and/or sudden rainfall and are made of waterproof and breathable fabrics), soft shell pants (made of a mixture of fleece and windproof materials to insulate and protect from the cold and wind) or leggings (which offer maximum strength, insulation, and breathability). Which one will you choose?

Rain jackets: the most important element of outdoor clothing

Choosing a mountain jacket for your outdoor activities means opting for mobility and comfort. Whether you like hiking, skiing, running, mountaineering or mountain biking, on SVD’s online store you will find the most suitable jacket for your field of play. Discover outdoor jackets from the best brands such as Nike ACG, Arc'teryx, Patagonia, Napapijri or The North Face in our Outdoor Clothing section. Opt for quality and design regardless of the weather or the time of year and get the gear that meets all your desires and needs at SVD UAE. Don't be afraid to face new challenges in your new outdoor jacket.
