KAKADU TRADERS Australia+MOUNTAIN KHAKIS- Wyoming Men's/Women's Apparel 2013

Outdoor Retailer/SLC

Two of the more authentic, style spot-in--- and durable outdoor apparel brands that we see at OR---Kakadu Traders and Mountain Khakis...share some characteristics---and sorta of do others-the former's best selling items include Gun Carry designs- which we think make really great inner pockets for securely carrying travel documents-currency-credit cards etc...and the latter, now majority owned by Remington Arms.

High quality casual/every-day wear that's tough enough for ranch hands as well as subway riders... with whole collections of terrific accessories too---these two brands have a loyal following of consumers...and imo-are authentically outdoor lifestyle companies...not some glammy fashion label interpretation thereof.

BAFFIN is a proud supporter of the Walking with the Wounded Allied Challenge, outfitting 6 injured servicemen as they race across the South Pole this November 2013. The Walking with the Wounded team includes five amputees and a serving soldier with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Prince Harry, who took part in Walking with the Wounded 2011, will take part in the trip to Antarctica this fall as a member of team Team Glenfiddich.

The WWTW Allied Challenge funds the re-training and re-education of servicemen and women, both veterans and those leaving the Armed forces, through undertaking inspirational expeditions and demonstrating the fortitude and bravery of wounded soldiers. The team will begin their expedition to the South Pole in November for four weeks and will travel a total of 335km while pulling 70kg sleds. Temperatures at the South Pole can get as low as -45°C. The team will race to the South Pole against Armed Forces personnel from the United States and Commonwealth (Australia and Canada) who have sustained physical or cognitive injuries in the line of duty.
The Walking with the Wounded team, including Prince Harry himself, will wear Baffin’s Endurance and Impact from the Polar Series, designed to keep your feet warm in temperatures down to -100°C/-148°F. These highly technical expedition boots have been meticulously thought out and tested in the most extreme environments, including the South Pole by President and Chief Testing Officer, Paul Hubner. Coupled with Baffin’s new Polar Socks, made in Canada, these boots will wick away the moisture generated by high activity, while reflecting energy back upon the foot for warmth.

At the international news conference this past Friday, the 28-year-old prince teased his competitors saying, “As a member of the British team, I will have a brew (tea) on ready for you when you join us at the Pole,”
