About 95% of the time "rugged and stylish" is just a buzzphrase, not an honest way to describe the gear of an adventure retailer. It ain't easy building products for rain, sleet, snow, and compliments.
But Topo Designs is the rare brand that pulls it off. The company began in Fort Collins in 2008, in the shadow of Horsetooth Mountain, and it honors its foothill roots with high-performance fabrics that sneeze at the elements. Those seatbelt webbings and Polartec Fleeces pair effortlessly with the brand's trademark Starbursts splash of color — an array of blues, yellows and reds that'll have fellow hikers/travelers/errand-runners staring.
Below, our favorite products from the sale.
