Push­ing the bound­aries

Evossi Dis­cover Gilet £63

Trail Running (UK) - - Kit Bag -

Orig­i­nat­ing from a Kick­starter cam­paign, Evossi seems to have taken its lead from brands like Lu­l­ule­mon, Kit & Ace and Ca­s­tore to cre­ate high-qual­ity, stylish ac­tive wear, born more out of Rich­mond Park than Am­ble­side. That’s no crit­i­cism – it means you can guar­an­tee the clothes you’re hit­ting the trails in will per­form and look good while queu­ing for your post-run, re­vi­tal­is­ing, In­sta­grammable smoothie (don’t try to deny it). Even if that doesn’t sound like your usual Satur­day morn­ing, this is one bit of kit worth pay­ing at­ten­tion to. Evossi’s USP is its mul­ti­pock­eted gar­ments, and this Dis­cover Gilet ex­cels in func­tion­al­ity – its dual-front pock­ets are sup­ple­mented by another in the small of the back, with a head­phone loop on the in­side of the chest for lis­ten­ing on the go. Phones and keys feel se­cure in all the pock­ets, even on bumpy trails, and it was ef­fec­tive as a wa­ter­proof layer, too. www. evossi.com

CARRY ON

You can carry all the gad­gets you need with this gilet – no need for the ex­tra weight and faff of a waist pack or ruck­sack.
