Exercise has become, well, an exercise.
We’ve traded in the chin-up bars, kettlebells and eight-lane running ovals of yore for an increasingly ludicrous consortium of Fitbits, nanotech-enhanced activewear and cult-positive obstacle races.
Bringing fitness back to its roots: Outdoor Voices, a refreshingly uncomplicated wardrobe for your active time, now available.
OV runs on an easy-to-remember motto:
Doing Things is better than Not Doing Things.
I.e., put this on and get started.
Everything from OV is super-comfy, eminently breathable and good-looking from the go.
And without a lot of flash. The gear here comes in flattering, easy-to-match shades like overdyed ash, shattered cold blue steel and black.
Nothing to tax your mind while you’re taxing your body.
The core pieces:
Runner’s High Shorts, featuring a compression liner that “keeps everything where it ought to be, euphemistically speaking.” Also works as a swimsuit.
The Upstate Hoodie, perfect for spring and early summer layering
The Finishline Jacket, a mock-neck shell with top-shelf ventilation
Plus: loose-knit crew Ts, moss jersey running sweats and possibly the softest gym towel you’ll ever use.
Buy 'em all in a kit and save about $70.
