KAKADU Australia- Authentic Aussie Outdoor/Lifestyle Rugged Apparel

Outdoor Retailer/SLC

words/images Judith Ecochard

Some apparel styles are just impervious to the march of time...classics forever, that when worn- twenty years ago or twenty years hence...are just as rugged, handsome and appropriate. No embarrassing images from yesteryear...
Gunn Worn Concealed Carry Delta vest---10 0z Gunn-Worn Canvas pockets (16 front!!!)-and two internal---stash storage we all could use---cotton lined, D ring hang tag, rear double entry map pocket, leather rink collar, solid hardware zips, photographers/flyfisherman,  especially.
KAKADU (named for a national park in Australia) Traders make a collection of durable forever separates and accessories for men and women ---that are one of the fav labels we see at OR.

The attire is geared towards the outdoorsy type with a lot of built-in functionality---but we great, classically tailored apparel in general---city slickers would find favor in any of these items. We're surprised Ralph Lauren hasn't 'borrowed' this for some collection yet....and charged 3x more.
