The last 12 hours were stacked with meetings, miles & miles on the bike & a rainy ride home. Both Vulpine & Rapha merino made a huge difference: mitigating chills, odor & supplementing storage for cards, phone and more. Even down to the Rapha padded boxers, merino is essential. The Outlier 4G slacks, as they often are, were invaluable today for comfort & moisture resistance. The Vulpine gilet & Outlier Packable Heat jacket ensured hiviz & dry warmth in the evening. By accommodating various business settings & outdoor environments whilst providing both professional appearance & reliable functionality, these brands are much more than savvy fabrics, brilliant marketing & niche use cases. Wearing these garments means I’m more comfortable and ultimately more successful.
