As spring moves toward summer its time to shed some layers but keep an eye open for those inevitable showers. Webtogs present a selection of versatile and stylish seasonal outdoor clothing from leading brands The North Face and Merrell.
The North Face Peregrine Jacket is ideal for changing seasons with its hybrid performance and design. The combination of Windstopper Softshell with Apex Aerobic inserts keeps April showers and cold nights at bay whilst remaining breathable as spring gives way to summer.
Nothing signifies the change of season more than the convertible pant, and the Paramount Peak Convertible Pant is a superb example of the versatility of good design and fabric choice. Abrasion resistant and UV resistant the full length trousers are ideal for trekking or just walking the dog, but if the sun does make an appearance the lower legs zip off to give a pair of stylish ten-inch shorts.
The perfect compliment for convertible pants, The North Faces long sleeved Ventilation Shirt is as good on the British hills as an expedition to Africa. With built in UV protection and a handy double up collar the Ventilation Shirt is designed to make walking in warm climates comfortable. Smart enough to wear out on the town but abrasion resistant and quick drying the Ventilation Shirt also uses strategically placed mesh panels at the yoke, sides and underarm to maintain a comfortable temperature.
With the snows of winter a fading memory and its time to drop the heavy boots and look for some lightweight, comfortable, footwear for the hardening terrain of summer. Merrell have an enviable reputation for producing supremely comfortable and durable approach shoes ideal for the British summer, yet protective enough to handle spring showers.
The Merrell Intercept shoe is a classic shoe that combines classic comfort, style and function with a combination of Nubuck leather and synthetic materials on a sticky rubber Vibram sole. Using Air Cushion technology and an anatomical footbed the Intercept will give day-long comfort, with the sticky rubber sole with 4.5mm deep lugs taking care of grip on almost any surface.
Designed specifically for women, the Merrell Siren Sync uses a triple density compression moulded EVA footframe and an air cushion midsole to make a shoe with comfort as a priority. A Nubuck and mesh upper, treated with an antimicrobial coating, gives impressive breathability whilst a Vibram TC Rubber sole gives grip to make the Siren Sync as functional as it is comfortable.
The Chameleon Arc GTX XCR is designed for everyday use from walking the high street to completing the Wainwrights. Comfort is a priority with the Chameleon Arc, with a triple density moulded foot-frame, antimicrobial lining and protective rand keeping the foot amongst a host of hi-tech features. Stability and grip get the same advanced design with internal and external injection moulded stability features and TC5+ rubber for the Vibram sole.
