    A Super Lightweight Packable Vest Suitable for Multipurpose Outdoor Activities

    Throughout Scandinavia there is a saying: there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing. Aktiv is your view into different aspects of Scandinavia.

    You will find Scandinavian clothes from Denmark, Iceland, Norway and Sweden that are above all, excellent quality, beautifully designed, responsibly produced, and durable. This is not disposable clothing, it is warmth, or coziness, sometimes fitted, sometimes relaxed, but always there for when you need to Exert.Explore.Exhale.

    It is always nice to have a vest in men’s closet – you can go hiking with it, go camping with it or even just leave it at your backyard, you will need it a lot of times when the weather turns a little chill.

    Even in the Summer, I mean now it’s still August, here in San Diego, when Ryan and I have an early morning walk around 7am, it is not really a SUMMER weather. Around 65 degree, we do need something to keep warm. A lightweight vest is the perfect choice.

    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.
