Top T-Shirts for the Outdoors

I thought it was about time for a T-Shirt post, as I write this in late May the Sun is out, the air is warm so time to throw your fleeces into storage and break out the short sleeve T-Shirts.  Here are a selection of Tees to look great whatever your sport be it running, camping, climbing, hiking or just chilling out.

Logo T-Shirts

An obvious starting point is a Logo T-Shirt.  You can’t go wrong with a Logo T-Shirt of your favourite brands.

The North Face Woodcut T-shirt is available in Cosmic Blue or Coffee Brown and the North Face Logo appears with a Woodcut style background.

Sometimes the best type of T-Shirt contains a design that you aspire to, a climber up a mountain, a long road ahead and more.

Sayings and Slogan T-Shirts

Activity Essentials

Salomon S-Lab Fellcross

Salomon S-Lab Fellcross is one of the leading ultralight trail running shoes.  Trail running if you’re not sure is running over hiking trails, these are often muddy and uneven.  Good trail shoes have aggressive knobbly soles that are more rigid than standard running shoes.  As running is on trails rather than hard roads cushioning is less important.  Trail shoes have a low profile to cope with the uneven ground.  Finally they must be lightweight.

The S-Lab Fellcross is no exception to this, the shoe is comfortable, lightweight and has spent more than 2 years in design and development by real athletes testing different materials and profiles extensively.  The laces are a quick draw system, this is lightweight and quick and easy to put on.  The Salomon S-Lab Fellcross also recently one TGO Magazines Footwear product of the year 2012 award.
