Spring Rain Gear for the Family

Monday, April 13, 2015 11:07:57 AM America/Chicago

With projected rainstorms looming over Texas the next few days, it is important to gear up with insulating and stylish pieces that will keep you dry even during April’s harshest showers. With high quality rain gear from brands such as Patagonia and Columbia, St. Bernard Sports has functional and fun rain gear options that will keep the whole family comfortable all month long.

 

For a classic rain jacket, Patagonia’s Torrentshell Jacket is a great combination of breathable and lightweight.  Made from Patagonia’s signature H2No technology, this jacket ensures that you will stay dry and cool during all of your rainy day adventures. Paired over your everyday clothing or your hiking gear, this jacket is universally appropriate with its streamlined design and wide range of available colors. We personally love the Mayan Yellow, Turkish Red, and Curacao White options for a bright pop of color even on the cloudiest of days. Pair this versatile piece with the ever-popular Hunter Original Gloss Tall boots for a look that is timeless, functional, and bright!

Women's Rain Look
 


Masculine and durable, the Simms Men’s Hyalite Rain Shell is ideal for helping you ignore the rain as you spend your day enjoying your favorite outdoor sports. This Nylon jacket will keep you dry all day long without being bulky or trapping in body heat, making it the perfect jacket for warm, humid April showers. Paired with casual shorts or khakis, this jacket will compliment every outfit while protecting your clothing from the rain. For days spent hiking, pair this jacket with Columbia’s Snowblade Waterproof Boot to keep you dry and comfortable from head to toe without sacrificing movement or vital grip in the rain.

Available in playful patterns and vibrant hues, the K-Way Classic Jacket is insulating and incredibly light. This jacket is perfect for kids on the go as it has a detachable hood, and can be folded into itself to create a handy on-the-go packaged jacket. This jacket has a high quality zipper that prevents rain from getting in, with back panel vents to keep out trapped body heat. To create a cohesive kiddy look, mirror Mom’s classic Hunter boots with Hunter Kid’s Original Colorblock Rain Boots available in a playful two-toned purple and pink option.

 

Girl's Rain Look
 

When we think of classic rain gear, we instantly think of bright yellow rain boots. Hunter Kid’s Davidson Rain Boots are a modern version of the boots we dawned in our puddle jumping days. Just like the Hunter Colorblock boots and Women’s Classic boots, these boots are made from natural rubber and quick drying Nylon, so they will dry fast if the splashing gets a little out of control! Pair these bright boots with Patagonia’s cool toned Baby Baggies Jacket in Lime Green or Birch White for a look that brings a little sunshine to your rainy day.

High quality, water repellant gear is vital for keeping your family active and exploring even on the rainiest days. With these picks, you and your family are sure to stay cool and dry while bringing a little bit of brightness regardless of April’s showers!

Local Spotlight: Four Questions with the Howler Brothers

Thursday, March 26, 2015 3:01:55 PM America/Chicago



Howler Brothers founders Chase Heard and Andy Stepanian know a thing or two about dressing the man of adventure. From their Central American travels and shared love for fishing and surfing to their musical roots, the duo behind this Austin based brand have transferred their lifestyle approach to a brand that's meant to be worn where life takes you. As one of our local brands, we're excited to spotlight the Howler Brothers guys in with a Q&A and get to know more about what makes the design process happen and their favorite picks for Spring/Summer 2015. 



You're the brothers not related by blood. What is it about your friendship that helped you know partnering together on a clothing brand was a good idea? 

A: No doubt it's been our years playing and traveling in a band that has given us confidence that we could work together on Howler.  Not only do we know we can handle the rigors of being around each other 24/7 while touring, but we also know that we're able to work well on a creative level.      
 
What aspect of Howler Brothers, from design to production, are each of you the most proud of?
 
A: I'd say that each of us are most proud of the design aspect of Howler.  The vast majority of our design work is done in-house by Chase, and from the beginning we've been able to maintain an aesthetic that each of us really enjoys. 
 
What's one Howler Brothers product that you think every guy needs in his closet?
 
A: Our Gaucho Snapshirt.  Some varieties of the shirt have Texas-influenced shoulder embroidery featuring all sorts of fun designs combined with little technical aspects that make it a great on the water and/or travel shirt.  The shirt is a pretty good summation of our design approach.   
 
Where is your favorite spot in Texas to wear your Howler Brothers?
 
A:  Everywhere!  We try to make clothing that is as well suited for coastal/outdoor pursuits as it is for a bar with the buddies.

Flash Lens Sunglasses

Monday, April 21, 2014 3:37:27 PM America/Chicago

Trending: Flash Lens Sunglasses

 


 

Flash lens sunglasses are a huge trend this summer! Our top sellers are styles by Ray-Ban and Costa Del Mar. The blue ones seem to be the most popular, but how fun are the pink and orange ones too? You really can't go wrong with any of the styles or colors of these vibrant flash lens sunglasses this season.

Not only are they stylish, but they are also coated with superheated metal oxides to achieve a reflective mirror coating, which absorbs more light reducing glare! What is not to love?
