What happens when you take one of our fave outdoor brands and mix it with Aquaman’s go-to climbing gear? You get the Topo Designs x So iLL Limited-Edition Climbing Collection collab. This bright, yet burly set comes with the durability and style that both Topo and So iLL are well-known for in their respective circles.
The collection comes with four marquee products celebrating each company’s love for climbing both indoors and out: a new climbing shoe, Cosmos Bag, Chalk Bucket, and Accessory Bag. Of the collab, Topo co-founder Jedd Rose said…
“Here at Topo we have been following So iLL from the very beginning and have been huge fans since day one. The way they have crafted an incredible design aesthetic that feels totally unique to the industry is something that really inspires us. Getting to know the talented team behind the brand, becoming friends, and working together on this project has been amazing.”
Above is an exclusive-to-Vanish video with some great BTS footage introducing collaboration and continue reading below for details surrounding each new piece.
The Topo Designs x So iLL climbing shoe ($149) has a highly tensioned, yet comfortable heel, stiff midsole for support, and molded rand which provides a more precise fit. It’s a solid, all-around shoe for climbers. We dig the bold red colorway and the Dark Matter Rubber helps create a look that’s sure to keep you standing out on the wall.
The Topo Designs x So iLL Cosmos Bag ($105) is a limited edition pack that’s built to haul everything needed for a day at the gym, with a spacious interior and plenty of external gear attachment points. A small internal zippered pocket keeps gear organized while a large zippered front pocket means must-haves stay accessible and don’t disappear in the bottom of the bag.
The Topo Designs x So iLL Chalk Bucket ($49) is designed for both indoor or outdoor climbing sessions. The bag features two internal side slip pockets to store your climbing shoes, a cinch closure for keeping chalk in its place, and an external front pocket for small essentials. An internal clip ensures your keys won’t go missing while you climb. They’ve also added daisy chain webbing that offers plenty of attachment points for brushes or water bottles and the removable adjustable shoulder strap provides additional carrying options.
The Topo Designs x So iLL Accessory Bag ($19) is a limited-run colorway that will stand out in the gym or at the crag. Here at Vanish, we use these all the time as they are small enough to be pack-friendly, yet large enough to hold all kinds of everyday carry essentials.
