Created by former special forces, ThruDark’s products have been tested in the toughest of elements to ensure they are up to scratch.
Co-founders Louis and Staz spent a combined 27 years in the military service. During their time in the forces, both endured some of the world’s most arduous environments in extremely demanding circumstances.
This opened their eyes for a need to design and make outerwear that could meet the highest expectations of what is needed when out in these harsh environments. “ThruDark was born out of our constant requirement for the best clothing and equipment to assist us in this ‘Endeavour Through Adversity’,” Louis explains.
All apparel has been created with the wearer in mind. Jackets are wind or water-resistant, lightweight and quick-drying. Trousers have multi-functional pockets and thermal underlayers have a four-way stretch for maximum comfort. The rescue technology featured in some of the jackets is particularly notable – the highly reflective RECCO rescue reflectors make you searchable by rescue teams in case of avalanches and emergencies.
A GQ favourite has to be the water repellant, quick-dry SF expedition parka. Apart from being windproof, the coat has been insulated with 100% Italian goose down and finished with external micro fleece hand pockets to help keep the wearer’s hands warm.
Another special mention has to go to the SF Patriot jacket, which has been finished with ThruDark’s bespoke heritage liner. The patented stone blended liner is a unique print and has been filled with 100% Italian goose down for optimum warmth. With its puffer appearance, the jacket can transition into your everyday wardrobe effortlessly too, making it a go-to item for us.
ThruDark’s ethos is based all around joining “the brotherhood”, so with snow on the forecast, now has never been a better time to invest and join.
