City Break – Energised to Thrill
A city break is a popular choice for many travellers, especially for long weekends or short stays. Drawn by the many opportunities a big city offers, the reasons for visiting are as numerous as the choice of cities. The decision maybe professional or personal, including business meetings, attending a conference, visiting family or friends, sightseeing and culture or attending an event.
Many are merely drawn to the energy of a large conurbation, the frantic pace, numerous options for dining or bars to enjoy a drink are part of the attraction. The hustle and bustle, even chaos of a city break attracts a variety of travellers.
Dressed for Thrills
In the modern era of airline luggage restrictions and the current trend of carryon only, it’s important that the clothing fits the bill! The almost inexhaustible activity options require that first and foremost it needs to versatile, equally at home in a business meeting, browsing an art gallery or a round of golf.
It also needs to be comfortable, lightweight, stylish, hard-wearing and packable; i.e. we need our clothing to last, be convenient and not require ironing while making us look good.
Rohan; Fitting the Bill
High quality outdoor clothing manufacturer Rohan produces a range of clothing for men and women which perfectly suit a multi-activity city break. Streetwise designs coupled with technical fabrics combine to provide the most demanding traveller with a versatile and stylish travel wardrobe, ensuring the carryon meets the requirements of even the strictest airline luggage policy, but with plenty of mix and match options.
Versatility is Key
Packing a range of clothing, which won’t seem out of place in a range of situations and allow you to participate in a range of activities. Whatever your needs, Rohan has you covered.
Sightseeing in London: London Walking Tour; A Fistful of Landmarks
Even a business meeting or lunch; team up a pair of smart but casual Newtown chinos with a Freelance shirt and Chore jacket and you’ll be dressed to impress, in fact wear it at the airport and you might just get that upgrade you’ve always wanted. This combination won’t look out of place in a chic restaurant or bar.
The Classic jeans and a short-sleeved Stria polo or long-sleeved Merino Union 150 polo are ideal options for more relaxed socialising such as drinks with friends. They’re also perfect for exploring the city, on foot or using public transport, comfortable and relaxed, drying quickly and crease resistant. So, whether attending a conference, a music festival, taking in a Westend show, or enjoying culture in a museum you will be noticed for all the right reasons.
Fancy a round of golf? While the jeans won’t go down well on the fairways, the Newtown chinos and Stria polo will ensure the club professional welcomes you with open arms. When the sun goes down, slip on the Extrafine merino ziptop it will keep you warm, keep you swinging freely and ensure you are appropriately dressed to enjoy a post round drink in the 19th hole.
Exploring Trondheim: Pride and Presentability in Trondheim
Sightseeing or shopping, sipping a latte in the coffee shop, a daiquiri in the cocktail bar or browsing contemporary art collections in the gallery having versatile clothing options will not only reduce the size of your baggage, but will ensure you appear dressed to impress regardless of the situation or weather.
Talking of weather, it can be unpredictable, so including options which can cope with inclement conditions makes good sense. The Dry requisite trousers appear equally smart, but due the waterproof, breathable liner and durable water repellent polyamide outer fabric, they will keep you dry. On the golf course, in the hills or browsing an outdoor exhibition, they won’t let you down.
I’ve even worn the Icepack jacket when it got cold in a birdwatching hide, the insulated, lightweight jacket is perfect when things get a little chilly.
The Rohan range not only talks the talk, it walks the walk; designed to be stylish, yet utilising cutting-edge technical fabrics. Highly wickable, they are comfortable in a range of temperatures, lightweight and durable, often waterproof, some include UV radiation or mosquito protection.
Next time you are considering a city break, pay attention to your clothing options, plan ahead, where will you be visiting, what activities are planned and check the weather forecast. Pack smart, pack small, pack versatile and I’d advise checking out the Rohan range, it will probably cover all your bases.
