COTTWEILER X REEBOK SS18
Inspired by Marathon Des Sables, a desert marathon regarded as being the toughest footrace in the world, accessories include advanced hydration solutions and a cap with UPF and sand protection. As per the previous collaboration, we worked with Cottweiler to adapt inline Reebok accessories to suit the seasonal theme and required function.
The Sahara Vest Backpack is particularly interesting, as it is based off the Spartan Hybrid backpack/vest I designed for Reebok in 2016. Designed with extreme racing conditions in mind, it served as a good base to work from. Where the Spartan Hybrid was designed to be indestructible, the Sahara Vest Backpack needed to be lightweight and have UPF protection. We updated the Cordura fabric to a lightweight nylon and altered pockets and details where appropriate, while still maintaining the close-fitting, ergonomic and unique properties of the Spartan Hybrid.
Where appropriate, the accessories linked to apparel in terms of fabrics, trims and details.
