No matter how you like to spend time outdoors, Royal Robbins‘ sustainable outdoor clothing collection will meet your needs. Whether you’re walking the dog, hiking, or enjoying an al fresco lunch in the park, their collection of jackets, sweaters, skirts and shorts combine functionality, practicality and style to help you #GoEverywhere.
One of the things I have found with outdoor clothing is that it is often very difficult to find sustainable fabrics, or items made with longevity of wear in mind. I try to buy as much as I can secondhand, but there’s nothing like a new, ethically-produced item, which you know will last you years and protect you against the elements! Thankfully Royal Robbins does not disappoint.

Introducing Royal Robbins
The company was created by Royal Robbins and his wife, Liz, who were both enthusiastic rock climbers. Their technique when climbing was called “clean climbing”, whereby they would leave the rock face largely untouched when they left it, an ethos that was reflected in their day to day life as well. After visiting Yosemite in the 60s, they realised there was a large gap in the market for sustainable outdoor clothing, and so the Royal Robbins brand was born.
The word ‘sustainable’ seems to be everywhere nowadays, and unfortunately, it seems that greenwashing goes with it. Since I have become more of an advocate for sustainable fashion, I am very particular about which brands I choose to work with. So when the Royal Robbins team reached out to me for this campaign, I asked various questions and did my own research to find out just how sustainable the Royal Robbins brand is.
I was pleased to find that Royal Robbins truly does tick all of my sustainability boxes! Their ethos is very close to my own. Their latest collection focuses on sustainable fabrics such as hemp, organic cotton, modal (made from beech tree pulp) and recycled materials. Each garment is made ethically, with environmentally friendly production methods, without harmful chemicals. Garments are manufactured in factories in Vietnam which are part of the Fair Labor Association, which ensures safe working conditions and fair pay, alongside other companies under the Fenix Outdoor umbrella.
Sustainability is entwined with functionality at Royal Robbins. Being climbers, Royal and Liz needed to create garments that would be stylish, as well as hardwearing against the elements, with simple, functional quirks such as handy pockets and zips. This is outdoor clothing that you can trust will last and will help make your outdoors activities fun and stylish.

Royal Robbins Connection Reversible Pullover
I love items that are multi-functional and you can wear this fleece two ways! That means you’ve got two outfits in one and can pack less for your trip. One side is a smart grid pattern and the other is fluffy fleece – smart yet cosy for colder weather. The roll neck will keep you warm and comfortable. Pockets at the waist are handy for your phone and keys – and you can zip them up to keep everything secure!
