Sherpa Adventure Gear will show its Spring '14 outdoor apparel at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in Booth 2000. The Baato legwear and Mechi base layer collections are new offerings from the company's clothing for climbing, backpacking, hiking, travel and every day wear.
Baato Pants and Shorts Collection do double duty for trek and travel with hybrid design of durable and stretch nylons
When you’re headed out for a trek, part of the adventure is the travel to and from the trailhead—in the city, at restaurants and sightseeing. You need to pack light and efficiently, with clothing that keeps you looking presentable, but that can take on the rough and tumble of the mountains day after day, keeping you fresh, dry and comfortable throughout. Sherpa Adventure Gear’s new Baato collection of pants and shorts is up to the task, combining two types of nylon in a hybrid design that is stretches for comfort, is highly durable, fends off wrinkles, and dries quickly. Styles include:
- Men’s Baato Hybrid Convertible Pant. Men’s pants are available in regular and tall inseam lengths.
- Men’s and Women’s Baato Hybrid Pant. Women’s pant cinches to a Capri.
- Men’s and Women’s Baato Hybrid Short
Superlight Mechi base layer tops are easy-layering, dry quickly and do combat against odors on expeditions and long adventures
Need a base layer you can wear day after day in the mountains? Sherpa Adventure Gear’s new Mechi crew neck base layer tops fit the bill for long adventures and expeditions with built-in odor protection and quick drying fabric that is very light and layers easily. The 100% polyester silk weight jersey knit has a knit structure that enables it to dry quickly. Polygiene treatment counteracts the effects of bacteria- and fungus-causing odor. Polygiene is a safe, natural, silver-based treatment that lasts the life of the garment. Styles include:
- Men’s and Women’s Mechi Long Sleeve Crew
- Men’s and Women’s Mechi Short Sleeve Tee
About Sherpa Adventure Gear
In the highest reaches of the Himalayas, the Sherpa people lead the world in mountaineering with warmth, grace and good humour. Tashi Sherpa, discovering that his uncle was on Sir Edmund Hilary’s celebrated, 1953 expedition to the summit of Everest, founded Sherpa Adventure Gear in 2003 in this spirit—to honour his own people by creating the best quality outdoor apparel made in Nepal. The company employs hundreds in Kathmandu and Nepal at its headquarters, stores and manufacturing operations. Marketing and North American sales and distribution is based in Kent, Washington. A portion of every sale benefits the education of Sherpa children through the Paldorje Education Fund, an IRS 501(c)(3) charitable arm the company established in May 2012.
