Lunis Apollo Pants

Technical performance meets street-style in these breathable, water-resistant "adventure" pants

Looking stylish no longer means having to wear clothes that don't hold up to the rigors of the outdoors. Following their impressive debut reflective windshell, LA-based technical clothing designer Lunis presents their newest piece to blur the line between streetwear and outdoor gear: the Apollo pants. Constructed from a field-tested burly blend of nylon, polyester and elastane, the pants feature design details you would expect from a pair built purely for the outdoors, yet with a tailored city-ready look and fit.

"My friends and I love adventure travel and my goal was to create a single pair of pants for the journey. Simplifying is key to travel and my life in general," says Lunis founder and designer Brett Clouser. Overlocked seams are then cross-stitched for added durability while the integration of Swiss-made Schoeller dryskin fabric beads off liquids; a Nanosphere coating (where the particles of a surface are so intricate, spills simply cannot ingrain themselves in the fabric) keeps you clean for days. If you're hitting the streets on your bike, roll up the right pant leg to reveal an ultra-high visibility reflective design while a sixth, zippered pocket keeps valuables secured. The Apollo's fabric is highly breathable—wicking away sweat—meaning they stay dry inside and out.

Available in gray and black (with the possibility of a navy colorway) the Apollo pants are currently available via Kickstarter for $158.
