Whether you’re planning an epic backcountry adventure, just getting the miles in on your long weekends, or looking to unleash your inner warrior, it’s often daunting to just get started. Regardless of your goals, this year it’s time to add a little something extra to your workout routine. We spotted newcomer QOR (pronouced “core”, as in core strength) this year, and it doesn’t matter if you’ve already got rippling abs or are just getting off the couch, they’ve got the perfect line up of apparel and gear to get you in the gym and on the trail in all conditions.Founded by some of the original design and executive team from Athleta, QOR’s mission is to not only build some of the best performance clothing in the world, but to inspire men to push each piece (and themselves) to the limit. After a few workouts with some of their winter line, it’s easy to see that they’ve accomplished both goals.QOR doesn’t simply pump out the same tired tech fabric T-shirts and gym shorts as everyone else; they have put together a number of “QOR Kits” to help you organize what you need for any activity. Maybe you’re getting into some serious Crossfit style training, or looking to get out for some runs and ride in the snow. QOR has dedicated product picks to help you reach your peak.It doesn’t just stop there though. They’ve partnered with Polartec to incorporate cutting edge fabrics and coatings to their most technical gear. What does this mean for you? That jacket you wore for your morning run is dry before lunch, doesn’t stink even after half a dozen hard miles, and looks good enough to wear to happy hour. Welcome to the new standard in performance and active gear.If you’re looking for specific pieces, we recommend the Gym Jean. The highly abrasion resistant nylon/spandex blend sheds moisture and has ample stretch for your bike commute or time on the trail. They’re just as at home in a business casual environment, with smooth, uncomplicated styling that will impress your boss and that cute new girl in HR.For a little more winter functionality, it’s time for an upgrade to the Alpha Jacket. Using Polartec’s revolutionary Alpha Insulation – originally designed for Special Operations soldiers in cold and mountainous environments – this jacket is a perfect standalone piece for winter urban runs or your weekend errands. Layered under a serious shell like the Neoshell Performance Jacket, and you’ll be able to stand up to the harshest storms with ease.
