    Social Distancing Activities with Scandinavian Athleisure Wear

    Are you planing to do some “social distancing style” activities during this summer? This year is kind of so special that we can’t fly to travel, we can’t hangout with friends a lot, and we can’t do party. But at least, we still can go hiking, go camping and doing some other outdoor activities.
    Cozy is key during this time. I want to Introduce you to a brand Aktiv Style  – Scandinavian clothes from Denmark, Iceland, Norway and Sweden that are above all, excellent quality, beautifully designed, responsibly produced, and durable. Here are some perfect outfits for outdoor activities that you may be interested for the next outdoor adventure.

    For Hiking:

    Made for hiking and trail running, the new bitihorn wool Shirt for women is a light weight and technical long sleeve with an athletic fit.

    The comfortable shirt mixes the best of two worlds; polyester increases its durability and ensures it dries up quickly, while the wool will regulate your temperature and has naturally antibacterial and odor resistant properties. To provide maximum air flow, mesh has been placed in the most efficient moisture transporting areas such as the back, chest and under arms.

    The shirt can be worn by itself or used as a base layer. Keeping you warm on freezing ascents and lowering the temperature during hot summer days, it is the perfect base for everyone who loves high intensity activities.
    This falketind warmwool2 stretch Zip Hood is the ultimate all-round, all-year hooded mid-layer.

    The jacket is highly stretchable, and the main fabric is a recycled polyester and wool mix with excellent thermal properties and good breathability. It offers great moisture transport when you decide to increase your pace and dries up fast when hung up thanks to the polyester. The highly durable piece is suitable for everything from everyday strolling at your favorite outdoor destination to hardcore active use. The fabric’s resin surface treatment for extra pill resistance and enhanced durability. It has a comfy fit and clean look that will work at whatever, whenever.

    Practical features include a functional hood, two mid-mounted pockets that won’t interfere with shoulder straps and hip belt, a chest pocket, comfy cuffs, a one-hand adjustable elastic hem and a clean, snug collar. If you’re only investing in one hooded mid-layer for now, this one is a perfect choice.

    • Mid-mounted pockets
    • Full stretch
    • Hood fitting inside helmet
    • Elastic cuffs with thumb holes

    Stay toasty with our Elsie Wristbands by Ivanhoe of Sweden. Wrist warmers for women, knitted in a beautiful Nordic pattern.

    Fabric: 80% wool, 20% polyamide

    Men’s  Slumsvik from Ivanhoe is a soft and warm jacket for men, made of boiled wool and Tencel®. The jacket has button closure in front with wind placket behind and two big chest pocket with button. It always looks fantastic and is perfect for days when the weather changes from spiffy to iffy.

    Fabric: 60% wool, 40% lyocell

    • Wool is anti-bacterial and odor-resistant so you do not need to clean it often. When you do wash, use Wool cycle, then shape and air dry. Like your pets, wool should never be put in the dryer.
    • Dry clean if you are fancy.

    The Tove Jacket combines warmth and weather protection with high breathability. Wind and water resistant panels featuring Bionic Finish ECO are located on the upper sleeve, shoulders and hood. Lightweight high loft insulation on the front heats critical body parts and a stretchy mesh material on the back vents excess heat.

    For added coverage the sleeves are extra-long and the fixed hood can be adjusted. Reflective strips on the cuffs and back make a statement at night.

    About Aktiv:

    Here at Aktiv they buying philosophy has four main tenets: the right aesthetic, real world testing, sustainability and responsibility, and last, but not least, quality. The clothes have to look great. They are focused on stylish lines that capture the minimalist Nordic feel while delivering form and function. They have to feel good on and be practical, but they can’t look ordinary. Discover the Makers at here.

    The quality of the clothing clinches its inclusion on Aktiv’s site; the items are designed and manufactured to be worn for years. Part of what makes the fashion industry the second highest industrial polluter in the world (behind the energy industry) is that most clothing is disposable. A consumer buys an article designed for mass consumption; its made of cheap material that is guaranteed to wear out just in time for you to buy the next season’s line. This revolving wardrobe movement is wasteful and something at Aktiv hope to combat. If you buy one of their items, you should expect to get years of use out of it. That accounts for a slightly higher price point, but if you consider buying 10 items at a slightly higher cost that last five times longer, you come out ahead. Better for your pocketbook, and better for our planet.
