What is Gorpcore

Gorpcore allows you to combine comfort and style. Learn more about the outdoor trend that has taken the world by storm.

Have you heard of gorpcore? Stylist and creative director Todd Johnson explains gorpcore like this:

"Gorpcore is essentially wearing traditional and functional casual clothing outside of its intended environments."

Growing trend - "Good Ol' Raisins and Peanuts"

Outdoor activities have grown over the past 10-15 years, and more and more people are turning to nature for sports, activities and recreation. Nature is good for us – both physically and mentally – we can determine with certainty. Today, where much of the time is spent in front of different screens, we believe there is a counterbalance. And the counterbalance is to spend more time outdoors.

This may be one of the explanations for why outdoor activities have become so popular, and many people want to identify as outdoorsy people, even in the city.

Clothes that are prepared for everything

The fact that we have become more flexible than before is another reason. Maybe you take half a day at work, before you get out into the field. Then it's important to be prepared – why not just dress for these impulsive hiking experiences?

And this is what is called gorpcore. To dress in outfits that are always ready for hiking, but at the same time show what kind of person you are. In comfortable garments, allowing you to move freely.

Everyday clothes

For us, this is normal - In Lundhags, we love our clothes and we find them so comfortable to walk in that it's hard to switch back to stiff and uncomfortable outfits. Even at work.

The meticulous craftsmanship, high quality and comfortable design of our products give you room to move when cleaning the house, waterproofness when washing dishes and heat, which is perfect now that your electricity bill is rising. Or if you are going to spend the night in the forest.
