Girl’s Take, OR Show – Day 2

Post by blogger | January 24, 2008      
Colorado backcountry skiing.

Ambling along the aisles, I happened into Contourwear, a company that specializes in clothing for the active women. Perfect for me. One of their showcase items is the Adventure Travel Pack: seven pieces of clothing that will transform the way you travel. I must admit my suitcase is always HUGE and Lou grunts and groans when he hefts it into the truck. The Adventure Travel Pack could be the perfect thing for our upcoming Europe trip in March, where I’ll be limited to 100 pounds of luggage, something that has been worrying me for months.

Contourwear gave me two pieces of clothing and I put them on to wear around the show. Light Scholler pants that would function well on a hike or at a party, they were comfortable, sleek and stylish. Got two compliments on those. The top was a polyester/lycra blend, again stylish enough to wear to schmooze, yet made out of performance fabric. Dare tell Lou I snagged quite a few second glances when I was walking around in that. I look forward to getting more. This stuff is great for a busy gal like me that runs from the ski hill to the office to the night out on the town with her ol sweetie.

From their website:

The Adventure Travel Pack by Contourwear transforms the way you travel. 7 pieces create 35 outfits and pack into a sleek small pouch such as the Eagle Creek Pack-It Folder that will easily fit in a messenger bag. Hit the trail and the town with versatility, function and style! By purchasing the ATP you are making an investment in not just an outfit, but a wardrobe now that’s bang for your buck. Contourwear is all about simplifying your life. Pack less. Carry less. Do more. You’ll buy it for travel, love it for travel, and live in it for life…

    You have the right idea Lisa; the old travel maxim of half as much gear, twice as much money rings true. Especially with the Euro/USD fx rate at the moment.

Got something to say? Please do so.
