Skomer hiking gear for women: sustainable, fashionable and functional

Leave a Trace?

For many women, hiking isn’t simply something to enjoy; it’s not about "higher, faster, further" but about rest and relaxation. Finding the right gear and apparel is about more than pure functionality. Sustainability and modern styles are also important when it comes to holistic hiking. For women who care about style as much as they care about the planet, the following applies: always leave behind a good impression, but don’t leave a trace! That's why VAUDE has developed a hiking series for women that includes production methods with a small ecological footprint.

Lightweight materials made from coffee grounds and wood cellulose Lightweight hiking blouses, a selection of shirts made from fast-drying materials and stretchy hiking pants are part of the new Trek & Hike Collection.

Of course, the new collection is not only functional and fashionable, but also sustainable and fair. This is what the VAUDE Green Shape Label stands for and all products of the new Hiking Series bear this seal. In addition to materials such as recycled polyester, innovative and sustainable materials such as TENCEL® (made from wood cellulose) and S.Café® (made with coffee grounds) are also incorporated for a clear conscience and a clean planet. Eco Finish that is completely fluorocarbon-free (PFC-free) is used where needed.

The new feel-good shirt Skomer V-Neck is the perfect combination of t-shirt and blouse. The floral jacquard pattern at the back sets a visual accent. The slightly stretchy fabric also offers plenty of freedom of movement. It’s easy-care and quick-drying and features an impressive feminine look – ideal for travelling and hiking!         
The Skomer family naturally includes a comfortable pair of hiking pants as well. Skomer Pants double your benefits, especially on longer journeys and in warm weather. They feature a stretch waistband and pleasantly lightweight fabric for superior wearing comfort, as well as fabrics that are quick-drying and easy-care, which you’re sure to appreciate in hot and humid climates. This product is also manufactured without PFC and bears the Green Shape label.

Going on tour, in style

These classics for hiking are being updated for the Summer Season 2020. The color choices peacock and cranberry are striking. One was inspired by the peacock’s bright tail feathers with a strong turquoise that attracts everyone's attention – just like the rain and fleece jackets as well as T-shirts and tops from the Rosemoor, Skomer and Escape Series. Of course, practical features such as high UV protection and fast-drying materials remain the same.
The color cranberry is now even more present. Resembling the berry itself, it’s a little more muted, but still trendy and ultra-modern. For example, it can be found in the new Valua fleece jacket, which is made of a biodegradable fleece fabric made from cellulose which not only keeps you warm and cozy, but also help to reduce microplasics in the world’s oceans.

All over floral prints

Flower lovers take note. The Rosemoor AOP Jacket and AOP T-Shirt are completely new to the range. The abbreviation AOP stands for All Over Print – this time with playful floral patterns.  The Rosemoor is a multifunctional rain jacket with even more character thanks to its subtle pattern. Environmentally friendly production without fluorocarbons (PFC-free) and the use of recycled materials
are also good for the planet. And it offers reliable protection from wind
and weather. A vent that’s subtly integrated at the back supports your body’s
heat management system. The hood, cuffs and hem are adjustable.

The situation is similar with the Women’s Skomer AOP T-Shirt where the floral pattern is spread all over the shirt. This stylish T-shirt is perfect for travel, hiking and wellness.  It has been produced with resource-conserving methods and is also made from biodegradable wood cellulose that feels superbly comfortable against your skin. A silky smooth surface quickly transports moisture outward and prevents unpleasant odors. The Skomer AOP T-Shirt also dries very quickly and protects against UV radiation.
