5 Minute Read

Travel apparel pioneer launches new line designed for social versatility.

ExOfficio_UrbanFall2016_150Seattle, WA – ExOfficio®, the leading brand of travel apparel designed to provide comfortable performance solutions for travelers, is introducing a new urban travel collection for fall 2016.

The urban travel collection offers the perfect balance of stylish versatility and high performance features for urban travel exploration. Clean silhouettes offer sophisticated and versatile options that keep comfort, performance, protection, and technology at the forefront.

“Urban travel is the fastest-growing segment of the global leisure travel market, appealing to the interests of a broad range of travelers,” said Brian Thompson, general manager of ExOfficio. “The urban experience has its own set of challenges that require purpose-built apparel and gear that allow the traveler to move seamlessly from one experience to the next.”

The ExOfficio design team created every piece in the collection to meet the unique needs of the urban travel experience. Innovative technical fabrics throughout the line provide a variety of valuable features such as temperature regulation, water-resistance, odor-reduction, mobility, durability, and wrinkle-resistance. Together, these features provide protection from the elements and easy care on-the-road. Detailed, thoughtful features in each piece provide solutions to challenges the traveler faces, such as hidden security zip pockets to keep valuables safe and reversibility to get a wider variety of outfits with less to pack. The collection offers polished mix-and-match pieces in luxurious fabrics with covert performance features that provide a sense of confidence and comfort away from home without compromising style.
