The Best Bear Grylls Clothing To Endure The Outdoors
While fashion sense isn't at the forefront of an adventurer, explorer, climber or survival expert's mind when they're planning their next expedition, it's an undeniable fact that having the right clothes to make you look and feel like you're properly kitted out and ready for action goes a long way towards building the confidence you need to tackle whatever lies ahead. Unlike fashionable street wear, however, when it's adventure clothing you're looking for, performance trumps style every time.
But that's not to say you can't have both. Just look at world-renowned adventurer Bear Grylls, famed for his hit TV series Born Survivor, Running Wild and The Island. He's always seen wearing his BG range, produced in collaboration with top adventure brand Craghoppers, and seems to manage to strike that perfect balance between style, comfort and durability every time. Have a look at a few of his favourites, and start putting together a kick-ass adventure wardrobe of your own.
