The second Spring 16 launch focuses on lighter weight knits, all utilizing our Moisture Wicking coating, multi-use boardshorts and Water Repellent light-weight fleece. The knits we’ve designed for Spring saved us in the hot, humid Costa Rican jungles. The Moisture Wicking coatings helped to keep us dry and comfortable and the integrated paracord loop made it easy to hang dry them at our home base in Tamarindo. The Calvin, Rod and Patty boardshorts stood up to some bruisers out at Pop’s Point. When it came time for the pool with a hangover inducing margarita, they were equally up to the task of acting relaxed. The perfect yin – yang for below the waist. Enjoy.

About The Spring Collection:
We hopped on a red-eye and headed from LAX to Costa Rica—Tamarindo to be specific—with our Spring 2016 Collection in tow, some camera gear and a solid crew of good friends. The plane touched down just after 6am in San Jose, with little plan other than to work our way towards our humble abode at the famous Tamarindo Best Western. This was home base and from here we’d spend a week getting out of our comfort zone and into the jungles of Costa Rica. From surfing double overhead at Pop’s Point, washing out the front end on an under-powered Honda XR400, channel paddling croc infested waters and acting as volunteer rodeo clowns, we put this new range to the test. In the end, it left us more confident than ever in the quality and functionality of what we make.
The Spring 2016 Collection is a continuation of our mantra, Goods For Life, and an effort to design and build functional product in everyday wearable silhouettes. We’ve expanded our Moisture Wicking treatments in our knits and wovens, and added more Durable Water Repellent fleece, outerwear, and bottoms. All of these treatments are applied to better base fabrics like cotton oxfords and fine terry’s that avoid the tech stigma, letting you confidently leave your home prepared for when life happens.
Lastly, we saw the need to create a vessel or two worthy of carrying this functionally designed collection, so we did. This season we have two completely waterproof travel bags in the Jacque Backpack and the Lewis Duffel. Using Radio Frequency Seam Welding, 500D Tarpaulin PVC, and proven Fold & Seal top closures these bags are completely submersible. Backed by a one-year warranty and you have peace mind to wander farther with them.
