It’s funny that, no matter how much technology and materials advance, we still find ourselves drawn to the styles and designs of the past. And that doesn’t change when it comes to outdoor gear, as can be seen in the influx of heritage-inspired gear that hits the market. One such piece of gear is Westerlind Outdoor’s Climbing Jumpsuit — a superb nod to the history of rock climbing built with a contemporary mindset.
Styled like something you’d expect to see in an old worn-out photograph of an expedition long-passed, each of these jumpsuits is actually built from a much more modern and weather-resistant ripstop cotton blend. That material gives them a lot more durability than their predecessors while also cutting down on weight. And the whole package is made even better by the simple addition of gussets for improved mobility. Pre-washed for a perfect fit right off the rack, each of these stylish and simple mountaineering jumpsuits will run you $275.
