Seadon is a brand new company that are trailblazing their way into the fitness apparel industry. Their mission? To enrich your outdoor adventures when you set out to enjoy earth.
Everything Seadon does comes from their ethos to keep it sustainable; from the land to the sea. No shortcuts. No compromise. I’ve had the pleasure of trying some of their kit for the best part of half a year, and I’m here to give you the low-down on what’s so great about it.
Seadon clothing is designed with everyday people in mind, whether you are working out at home, hitting the trails, or just chilling out in the city. Their aim is to create high-quality trail goods, made with today’s most sustainable and ethical practices.
What I really love about this brand is that they keep sustainability in mind every step of the way from design to delivery. All their products are created from natural and recycled fibres in factories with high ethical standards. Everything is delivered in plastic-free packaging and Seadon offset their greenhouse gas emissions each year to minimise their carbon footprint and impact on our planet. They also donate 1% of their annual sales to environmental nonprofits!
Seadon Trail Tees [Earth-Friendly Travel Tees]
Seadon have a bundle of technical tees perfect for travel! They all have slightly different specifications. The Daymaker is a premium thick tee perfect for the casual adventurer. The Traveller is perfect for long journeys across all seasons and temperatures – especially those heading into the unknown (with little access to a washing machine). And the Trailblazer is for active travellers, those who love the outdoors and need something that they can sweat in.
Check out a brief overview below!
I’ve had the privilege of wearing some of Seadon’s gear for around half a year. Products were not received in exchange for a positive review. Here are my honest opinions. No bribes (promise!)
The Daymaker is a great all-round tee that can be worn around town as easily as it can be worn on the trail – perfect for unplanned adventures! It’s made from a blend of Tencel® and recycled polyester from ocean plastic. Tencel® is 100% natural fibre derived from Eucalyptus trees. It’s cooling, silky-soft, efficient in moisture absorption, and gentle to the skin – everything you want from a t-shirt. The Daymaker also has odour-reducing technology from Polygiene® and biowick technology (from algae!) that helps to absorb sweat, keeping you nice and dry all day.
I have the Daymaker in Cloud Grey, a soft blue-grey colour that goes with everything. Honestly, it’s the softest, comfiest t-shirt ever. It’s thick and high quality, and looks and fits great. It’s also incredibly versatile, I wear mine for everything, on hikes but also to work (yes, we have quite a chill dress-code). I love that Seadon keeps unnecessary branding or logos to a minimum; their clothing doesn’t stick out or look obnoxious like many fitness brands do.
The Traveler is a versatile tee for long journeys. Made from natural fibres, merino wool and Tencel® , the Traveller takes the coolest parts of nature and turns them into something awesome. Merino Wool is truly a magic fabric (I’m a big fan). This tee can absorb 1/3 of its weight in water without feeling damp to the skin so it’s perfect for travellers who love to hike, climb, run and cycle. It’s also one of the best antimicrobial fibres in the world, which means you can stay fresh for over a week before you have to do laundry (trust me – i’ve tried it!). What more do you want when you’re on the go? This fibre combination means the Traveller tee can naturally adapt to a range of temperatures whilst being extremely lightweight and luxuriously soft to wear. It’s wrinkle-resistant (perfect for long-term adventure travel!) and offers ultimate sun protection, with a rating of UPF 50+. It’ll also regulate your temperature, keeping you warm when it’s cold out, and cool when it’s hot.
I haven’t tried the Trailblazer myself but am certain it’ll be up to the high quality of Seadon’s other technical tees. Do let me know if you try it and how you get on!
