For those of us quarantined in cramped apartments or suddenly exposed to dangerous levels of roommate interactivity, it’s tempting to let our minds wander elsewhere — somewhere quieter and a bit more spacious perhaps, like the deserts of the American southwest. Fortunately for us, our friends over at Backcountry just dropped a spring apparel collection which happens to be inspired by the very same place — Red Rock Country in Arizona. The collection features standout items such as the 2-person Nachi Tent designed in collaboration with NEMO, the Women’s Double Dyno Climbing Pant and the Men’s Mantle Climbing Pant — all of which are currently 25 percent off along with the rest of Backcountry Gear & Apparel. And if your summer climbing trip happens to get canceled this year, those new pants can double-up as your new work-from-home pants until it’s safe to go outdoors again.
