Cotopaxi Introduces New Men’s Activewear Collection in the Signature Bright Colors

Cotopaxi, the mission-driven maker of innovative outdoor gear and outerwear, has jumped into the athletic clothing game with the 2018 Cotopaxi Men’s Activewear Collection.

The brand’s technical backpacks, shells, and tents help fund high-impact organizations around the world to reduce poverty, with 2 percent of their revenue going to groups who improve the health, education, and livelihood of people in developing countries. Workers on some of Cotopaxi’s products also get to play a part in design; “del dia” products, meaning “of the day,” are put together with whatever colors the workers prefer to use at the time.

Not content with only upgrading backpacks, outerwear, and tents recently, Cotopaxi is now putting their colorful spin on shorts, hoodies, T-shirts, and tights for hiking, climbing, and running.

Check out the best of Cotopaxi’s 2018 Activewear Collection below:

Quito Active Shirt – $50

You won’t find a softer athletic shirt than the Quito. The fast-drying Dri-release fabric is partially Tencel, a wood fiber, which makes it wick and breath very well, keeping you cool and dry. Seamless arm holes, two-way-stretch fabric, and 6 percent spandex means the Quito moves when you need it to without restriction.

Crux Active Short – $65

To complement the Quito on the bottom half, the Crux Active short keeps things moving and breathing with four-way-stretch fabric and a 7-inch inseam. A large, soft waistband keeps your shorts on and in the right place and remains comfortable even under backpack hip belts. Secure your keys in zipper pocket and tuck your phone in one of the two hand pockets — if you’re not moving quickly, that is.

Toliman Pullover Wool Hoodie – $140

This jacket is perfect for warming up after a surf session, recovering after a trail run, or just relaxing by the fire. Cotopaxi have nailed the comfortable, quick-drying, and no-stink qualities with the Toliman Pullover. The Polartec Power Wool keeps you warm and dry with a two-layer blend of merino wool on the inside and polyester on the outside. This is a hoodie you can wear both all day and all night, and it will moderate your temperature accordingly.

Wazimu Tights – $70

For those early morning runs and rides, a good pair of tights is required. The Wazimu Tights fit tight (like they’re supposed to) and breathe well. The front and inside of the leg are a thicker, with a tighter weave for durability and warmth. A strip down the outside and below the knees are thinner and more mesh-like for better temperature control. If you’re looking something lighter than Wazimu, check out the thinner Haraka.

Veloz Waist Belt – $46

If all you need is water and a phone, grab the Veloz Waist Belt. A simple pouch with two pockets and a hook and loop strap, the Veloz belt holds a 250 ml water flask, keys, and a phone or GPS.

Veloz 6 Hydration Pack – $140

If you need a little bit more space than the waist belt offers, opt for the Veloz 6. This hydration pack has two main pockets on the back for a jacket, snack, and two liters of water in the included reservoir. A stash pocket on the outside holds small things to grab on the go (like a Paray Jacket). Bandolier-style pockets sit on the front of the X-shaped, laminated harness and can be used for holding a water flask, phone, or more snacks. The Veloz 3 has the same tight-fitting harness with a touch less space and weight.
