Are you ready for adventure? Then Föhn’s range of versatile, multi-sport kit is here to help unlock the outdoor experience for you. Whatever your open-air challenge of choice – trail running, hiking, paddleboarding, cycling or surfing – Föhn’s clothing is rooted in technical performance and functionality, designed to keep you out there and comfortable, in any terrain, in any conditions. And you’ll look great too.

Smart Föhn

Föhn (pronounced fern) is a type of dry, warm, down-slope wind that occurs in the downwind side of a mountain range (it originally referred to a specific Alpine wind, but has since become a more generic term). So Föhn clothing is the wind on your back, pushing you on to your next adventure.

Welcome to the coolest kit for opportunists and the trailblazers from an exciting, cutting-edge young brand. Their just-released new autumn/winter 2020 range of waterproof jackets, insulated jackets, dry-release tees, merino base layers, hats and more once again proves how they’re committed to giving outdoor adventurers a new dimension in style, comfort and practicality. This is epic clothing for epic adventures, made to endure. They’ve even reinvented the fleece.

Föhn clothing is designed based on three main principles in mind – passion, performance and sustainability.

Passion

Launched in 2018 and based in the South of England, Föhn is a brand fuelled by a passion for outdoor adventure, run by a team who live that life who pour their passion into everything they make.

“Being surrounded by amazing landscapes, nature, exploring new places, dealing with the weather (good or bad), we believe that life is an adventure and we should make the most out of every moment; big or small,” they say. “By creating good kit that fits well, looks great, and is packed with all the features you need for an active lifestyle, we want to give our customers the ability to say ‘Yes’ to adventure.”

Föhn is quickly growing a family of Föhn fans and ambassadors equally as enthusiastic about their collection, and you can join them on online on Instagram and Facebook.

High performance

Föhn’s team includes designers and developers who are experts in fabric technology and know how to maximise the performance of a garment. Föhn choose fabrics specifically for their strengths, whether that be weather protection, breathability, insulation, weight or packability. Everything is then tested to ensure it offers the benefits you need to enhance your experiences.

This has involved partnering with some of the best technical suppliers in the industry, including Polartec, PrimaLoft and Drirelease, working hard to source fabrics that deliver high performance, quality and durability.
