Summer Clothes for Travelers from Bermuda Sands and Orvis
By Olivia Gilmore
With the summer heat coming in hot, no pun intended, it is essential to have the right outdoor apparel. If you’re looking for clothing that is high-quality and durable for the outdoors, then Bermuda Sands Apparel has what you’ve been searching for.
Established in 2009, Bermuda Sands is a family-owned company that has over 40 years of experience in manufacturing apparel. Using only premium materials, the clothing is designed in the United States and made in Central America.
The apparel is golf-based and the company offers a wide variety of knit golf and polo shirts for men and women. Layers/outerwear, skorts, and water repellent STORM DRI collections are also available.
After getting the chance to review the Addie essential solid skort in Magenta $73, I found out that the material lives up to its expectations. The skort, made of polyester and spandex, is perfect for a busy day on the course, or even a lounge day by the pool.
The skort comes in a wide variety of different colors and guarantees full coverage with sewn-in shorts. You will have no mishaps or worries when taking a swing with this skirt on. It even has pockets, three of them!
For men, whether you’re an avid golfer or not, the Action Printed Check Polo $77 is an ideal and versatile top that allows for free movement and stylish comfort.
Made out of spandex G2 tech performance fabric and polyester, the polo comes in amethyst and peri blue.
The neat vented sides feature allows for air circulation for those hot days on or off the course. What is noticeably nice about this polo is its ability to be worn anywhere. It can be dressed up for fancy evenings, or worn as casual wear.
Bermuda Sands Apparel prides itself on remaining true to the traditions of golf apparel, whether that be through design, pattern, color, or fit. The brand is available in over 1,000 green grass shops, resorts, and specialty stores.
Another favorite is the Strata women’s quarter zip pullover. The Strata pullover is a refined lightweight layering piece for those days where there is a little nip in the air. The 100% polyester jersey striated heather performance fabric is showcased on an active wear silhouette featuring an exposed zipper and a straight cut bottom. Bermuda Sands Strata pullover $65
Travel in Classic Style with Orvis
For over a century and a half, Orvis has been producing some of the most comfortable and efficient outdoor apparel and equipment. The company originally started as a fly-fishing and wing shooting brand but has since turned into a world leading brand for men’s and women’s sportswear, fine gifts and home furnishings, luggage, and travel accessories.
The wrinkle-free blazer is the brand chairman’s favorite and is made in the USA. Made of polyester and wool, the material resists stains and packs away easily.
The hopsack interior sports the companies exclusive Orvis File System, which features a button-tab pocket, zippered security pocket, and two utility pockets for storing important documents. This blazer is a favorite of Orvis Chairman Leigh H. Perkins himself!
The wrinkle resistant exterior covers an interior that’s equipped with more pockets than you’ll ever get the chance to use. Wherever you are flying, you can pair this garment with khakis, or jeans, for a versatile, super-functional and informal look.
“I travel extensively on business and this is my go to jacket for international travel. In fact, I just replaced one that I have worn for over 12 years with another identical Orvis blazer,” said one review on Orvis’ website. GoNOMAD Editor Max Hartshorne raved about this finely made blazer. “The blazer is the one essential piece that always makes you look great at meetings, dinners, and social events.” Orvis Traveler’s Hopsack Blazer
This brand doesn’t only attract men, but women too! Women’s pants, shorts, dresses, outwear and so much more are all available and ideal for frequent travelers. A great recommendation for a woman who is looking for a versatile travel dress is Orvis’ Florence Tank Travel Dress. $60
Go from a day trip walking around the city to a night on the town, dress it up or dress it down.
The material is made of quick drying polyester and spandex and has UPF 50 sun protection. What’s neat about this dress is that it has two hidden security pockets, not something you would normally find on your typical dress.
