SHERPA ADVENTURE GEAR Performance/Lifestyle Apparel Spring 2013

SHERPA...is a technical/lifestyle brand inspired by the Himalayas and the athletes who frequent it.

Sherpa owned and run...the company's performance garments ---will work for jaunts to higher peaks, runs/hikes through the parks, .as well as day trips in urban settings. Performance fabrics---and meticulous construction---are hallmarks...and almost all items made in three factories in Nepal.


Nice details like the multi-color zip tags like the fluttering Prayer Flags...and the Mandala print as a kind of logo...super flattering cuts on female apparel...and overall lifestyle pieces that are ideal for travel...easy care, sun protection woven in, and pockets-including hidden ones...for valuables. Durable too-these pieces will last a backpack trip around the world.
