Active & Outdoor wear
People love sports and people love to be outside. This well matching combination is the driving force behind the growing popularity of outdoor activities like hiking, climbing, fishing and camping. But as much as outdoor people are attracted by all the things that nature provides, they love gears and gadgets that can boost their outdoor performances.
Outdoor apparel plays a major role in this active lifestyle. People want a combination of the technical benefits of traditional outdoor clothing with the look and feel of fashionable everyday wear. This trend is driven by young people that see the outdoors as a playground to be enjoyed and experienced with friends. Not surprisingly, this target group also asks for more eco-friendly garments.
