Off Grid Sweatpants

The Grid might be doomed

Today we are truly plugged into the matrix – with the electrical grid, running water, gas, and Amazon all on tap. But what if the grid is a blip? After all, we survived for two million years without it. With many predicting wars over natural resources in the not-too-distant future, being disconnected from the production of everything we rely on for survival doesn’t feel like a great idea. So our Off Grid range is built for a future in which you have to rebuild your life with your bare hands.

Part of our Off Grid range

As parts of our planet become increasingly difficult to live on, and we’re forced into new and unknown terrain, we’re going to need solutions to help us. So our Off Grid range is a system of clothing we’ve designed to help you live remotely. It doesn’t matter whether you’re going off grid for a weekend, a year, or you’re selling up and unplugging for good. With vests and jackets made from the same stuff as body armour, high-strength utility pants and shorts, and the strongest rain shell ever built, we’ve focused on toughness, comfort and utility to help you live remotely and survive off the land.

Built for relaxing off grid

But however extreme the future becomes, at the end of a hard day you’re still going to want to stick on some comfortable clothes. It doesn’t matter if you’re living on a spaceship or you’ve disappeared off grid. Once dinner has been foraged, the fire is on, and the animals have been fed, you’re going to need some gear you can chill out in. So the Off Grid Sweatpants are built to do the same job as your regular sweatpants – they’re just adapted for much tougher environments.

The most comfortable sweatpants we make

Over the last 6 years we’ve been making pants for some of the most extreme environments you can find – from fire and extreme heat, to megastorms and Mars. But the Off Grid Sweatpants are built for extreme comfort. Made from a heavy-duty Italian cotton they have an incredibly dense structure to keep you warm and protected. The material is heavyweight at 480g/m2 which creates a rugged and durable outer layer.

Lined with soft fleece on the inside

To balance rugged strength with comfort, we’ve built the sweatpants with a soft fleece lining called ‘loopback.’ As well as feeling soft next to your skin, loopback allows the sweatpants to stretch easily and increases their breathability, so you’ll always feel comfortable. We also wash the sweatpants with a softener made from mangoes, so they look and feel lived-in from the moment you first put them on. And the more you wash and wear them, the softer they’re going to get.

Three hidden zipped pockets

You’ll find two side pockets on the sweatpants fitted with low-profile invisible zips which lock into place. And at the back of the pants on the right hand side you’ll find another angled pocket with the same zip. All the pockets are lined with a super soft organic cotton.

Elasticated rope-tied waistband

The pants tighten securely at the waist with an elasticated rope-tied waistband. The ropes are finished with macramé, an ancient ‘square knotting’ technique dating back to Babylonian times. There were no grids back then. And it’s the same technique we use on our Off Grid Pants.

Built for comfort in every season

Every piece of clothing has to earn its place when you’re off grid, so we wanted to create one pair of sweatpants that can do multiple jobs. The weight and structure of the cotton we use strikes the best balance for handling the temperature swings you get from season to season, or day to night. It means the sweatpants will work in winter, but they’re still breathable enough to work on warmer days. And if your clothes’ washing routine has reduced down to a bowl of hot water once in a while, these are low-maintenance sweatpants that are easy to clean, easy to dry, and hard to damage.

The grid might not be the solution we thought

We’ve spent almost all our entire time on Earth living off the grid. It’s been just 140 years since Thomas Edison switched on his generators at Manhattan’s Pearl Street Station in 1882 and the first electrical grid was born. Your great-great grandparents might have remembered it. It was 3pm on a Monday. Gas, water, Amazon and Netflix all followed. But what if the grid is a blip? What if it’s an experiment we’ve outgrown? After all, we survived for two million years without it.

What is “off grid”

Living off grid in its purest form means that you’re responsible for everything. Take a raft to an uninhabited desert island and you’ll get the idea. Drinking water? That’s yours to find. Fire? You’ll need to light it. Shelter? You’ll need to build it. Clothes? You’ll need to make some. Food? You’ll have to catch it or forage for it. At this end of the spectrum it’s all about survival. But given there aren’t quite enough islands to go round, the shift to off grid is more likely to take the form of self-sufficient communities setting up in increasingly remote and inhospitable terrain producing their own food and energy.

Why the future will be lived off grid

With finite fossil fuels, a rapidly changing climate, and many predicting water wars in the not-too-distant future, being totally divorced from the production of everything we rely on for survival doesn’t feel like a particularly smart idea. Not knowing how to grow your own food, raise animals, find water, or even build the things you need, might become a serious stumbling block to survival if things don’t quite run to plan. While getting to Mars is definitely the next frontier, there might be another one waiting for you on your own doorstep.
