Not to rest on their past success, the Landmark Project has continued with it’s tradition of making beautiful, exciting, comfortable clothing inspired by local wilderness icons, all while donating some of the proceeds to at risk youth in the local community. Their new designs showcase previously unmentioned National Parks and wilderness areas that certainly deserve some attention.
I’ve been proudly sporting the Landmark Projects apparel for several years now, as their garments are comfortable, durable, and represent ideas and destinations that are easy to get behind. Their new designs capture the feeling of awe and wonder of some of my favorite locations, both local and distant. My particular favorite, the Smokey Mountain National Park shirt brings together the towering peaks, fog filled valleys and thick, luscious underbrush to truly capture the feeling of being inside the park, while their new Acadia design shows off the steep and dangerous shore-side cliffs that they’re so famous for. Having visited both of these locations, it’s impressive how well they’ve been able to depict these spots in such convincing light, all while using clean, simple lines that are pleasing to the eye.
It’s not all about their designs however. The construction of their shirts is also excellent. Printed on some of the softest cottons I’ve ever felt, the shirts have a somewhat sporty fit that lasts miles and miles on the trail thanks to the quality stitching, excellent print technique and top of the line materials. I’m yet to wear out one of their shirts, and considering what I’ve put them through, that’s an accomplishment in itself.
They’re also pushing out some seasonal accessories, including a soft and impressively warm beanie, wool socks, and some ball caps if that’s your thing.
Check their website out here, http://www.thelandmarkproject.com/ to see what all they’re working with, and you can read about their impact on the locals here. They’re a fabulous company that’s doing a lot of good, and you can look snazzy while helping support their goals of helping local at risk youth experience the wilderness, perhaps for the first time.
I want to extend a huge thanks the crew at The Landmark Project for providing this gear for review. We couldn’t do it without their help. Our full disclosure can be found here.
