Functional clothing a must in the great outdoors

CAMPING clothes are not, let's say, typically fashionable.

But if you're someone who loves the outdoors, you might get excited by what these items deliver performance-wise for your next big trip.

When you're hiking up a mountain, lightweight, moisture absorbing clothing can make you pretty grateful at the time.

Hidden pockets and zip-off trousers suddenly hold much more value in your wardrobe.

And for those who love colour, you don't have to be bored with just khaki and neutrals (though we all don't mind channelling a bit of army bad-ass in camo).

There are plenty of bright colours to match the high spirits that come with fresh air and wilderness.

Clothes in this fashion shoot were provided by Gladstone's Camping Centre, which sells a large variety of clothing for all climates.
