While Patagonia has been expanding its business to fashion apparel segment in recent years, it has never forgotten to continue developing its fundamental product line, the outdoor sports gear. The brand spent two years for developing its newly introduced High Endurance Kit, with professional inputs from trail-runners Luke Nelson and Clare Gallagher to ensure this system works perfectly for trail-running in all kinds of weather condition.
The High Endurance Kit composes of a total of 6 pieces, from basic Capilene® Cool Lightweight Shirt, Endless Run Shorts and Strider Pro Pants to Airshed Pro Pullover, Slope Runner Endurance Vest and Storm Racer Jacket. Thin and light-weighted yet functional are the basic features of the system; some of the pieces are wisely designed to offer runners extra versatility and convenience. The highlight of this system is the Slope Runner Endurance Vest which is designed for continual movement. It can almost hold everything runners need for a full day out. The vest has multiple compression sleeves on the back for storing other gears like the Storm Racer Jacket. Things can be taken out from sides of over the head without a hassle during the running. The Endless Run Shorts is designed to be like a tight for carefree movement, but with panels for food, phone or whatever, without any bounce. The DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish of Airshed Pro Pullover offers some weather resistance, while the Storm Racer Jacket with H2No® fabric provides full waterproofing support for runners during wet and cold weathers.
Trail-running in Hong Kong may not be accompanied with extreme weathers; but you may still need such a versatile running kit for the humid weather here.
