The outdoor life doesn’t always have to be lived in a whirl of technical gear that is practical, but doesn’t really cut it in the style stakes when it comes to relaxing in a café or restaurant at the end of a hike or bike ride. If you want adventure clothing that lets you enjoy your favourite outdoor pursuits, yet is stylish enough to chuck on and wear all day, Royal Robbins' range of summer garments is for you. One wardrobe that goes anywhere meaning more adventure with less packing.  

The legendary brand’s summer clothing collection - available this season at Cotswold Outdoor - features a selection of lightweight, sustainable and versatile pieces that take you seamlessly from the hiking trail to the restaurant table. 

The brand was launched in 1968 by pioneering Yosemite climbers, Liz and Royal Robbins. They believed there was a gap in the market for functional clothing that also looked good. The pair were part of a legendary group responsible for coining the sustainable concept of ‘clean climbing’ and their love and respect for the natural world continues to be integral to the approach taken by the company today.   

Royal Robbins’ spring/summer 2023 collection has the company’s highest sustainability standards yet, with 64% of all its styles made using materials that contain 50% or more lower impact fibres. These include preferred cotton, recycled polyester, preferred forest materials such as rayon; recycled hemp, and preferred wool. 


Here at Active Traveller, we’re always on the hunt for gear that will make packing and dressing for epic adventures easier so we took a deep dive into the new assortment available at Cotswold Outdoor. Some of our favourite pieces include: 


Women’s Spotless Evolution Short

Sporty and lightweight, the Spotless Evolution Shorts’ combination of style and practicality is ideal for active travellers and means you can get dressed once, and be as ready for a morning’s hike as for a dinner in a city restaurant. The four-way stretch fabric guarantees easy movement on the trail and the two front zipped pockets provide a handy place to securely stash your belongings. The Bluesign® approved, recycled-blend fabric features HeiQ Stain Away technology so you can easily rinse out stains. They are also wrinkle-resistant which means they’ll stay looking good even after being shoved at the bottom of your pack while travelling.

They’ve been thoughtfully designed with a flattering cut and stain-resistant ‘spotless’ fabric that makes them a great option for city breaks as well. Made of 86% recycled post-consumer plastic bottles, you’re helping to keep rubbish out of landfills and oceans too.
