Spring Summer 2020
The Woolrich Outdoor Label combines two forces: humanity and nature. The collection is an ode to discovery, both urban and natural, born of know-how and technical experience. Experience the same spirit along the Appalachian Trail. Awe-inspiring and wild, we explore the trail from Georgia to Pennsylvania.Shop The Collection
Heritage silhouettes combined with performance fabrics evoke “timeless heritage” in our collection. Driven by durability and versatility, the styles are both smart and wearable. Modern textile innovations allow Woolrich to go beyond the ordinary. Inspired by iconic shapes and patterns, like the Mountain Jacket or the Shadowbark® camouflage created in 1987, each design seeks to bridge tradition with novelty.
Hiking the Appalachian Trail is an introspective and seasonal journey. Adaptability and utility are key to facing every challenge along the path. Changing temperatures and altitudes require layers with varying characteristics and an array of purposes. Quick-drying merino wool works as a super-stretch second skin. Packable, lightweight garments are designed to keep the body completely dry. An adaptation of Cordura® provides durability, Pertex® provides high wind resistance, and Solotex® combines soft-stretch texture with gentle cushioning to achieve an inventive memory membrane.
- Less Waste.
Starting from Georgia’s highest waterfall, Amicalola Falls, the first part of the Appalachian Trail gets through Springer Mountain, the southern terminus of this path. The forest landscape becomes increasingly rockier as the hike ascends, crossing patches of hewn rock and large rock outcrops.
Blue Ridge Mountains
The Blue Ridge Mountains traverse eight states, dipping slightly into South Carolina and Georgia, and extending as far north as Pennsylvania. With endless crests and crowns, and all varying shades of soft blue, enveloped by a translucent and unique haze, spring is best for admiring wildflowers in bloom and the vast biodiversity of the forest.
Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania
Boiling Springs is the halfway point of the entire Appalachian Trail. It is the point of arrival on our destination. Summer is the perfect period to take a rest and get ready for the upcoming colder journey.
