In 1986, Czech climber Roman Kamler decided to make his own outdoor sleeping bags because he couldn’t find any that met his standards in his native Czechoslovakia. Today, Tilak is still owned and run by the Kamler family, and the brand has built a reputation for making some of the best technical outerwear in Europe. You could say Tilak, ahem, Czechs all the boxes.
Czech outdoor apparel legends Tilak and their more urban-focused line, Poutnik, are back for FW22 with some returning favourites and new styles to provide warmth in any scenario. We've added the classic Svalbard to our outerwear roster, outfitted with windproof GORE-TEX Infinium™ for keeping heat in and crappy weather conditions out. Pair them with either the Ultralight or Crux Pants – two lightweight, hiking-ready options – and you've got yourself a practical ensemble for any adventure. From Poutnik, we've re-upped on the Caw Jacket GTX, while also adding the super practical Pygmy Jacket & Pygmy Vest, plus the Sage Sweatshirt for warm layering all winter long.
Before washing a GORE-TEX jacket, zip up all zippers and fasten all loose straps and flaps. Machine wash individually in warm water with a mild or technical detergent (e.g. Nikwax or Grangers). Rinse twice to remove soap residue. Tumble dry on warm. If you want to restore the water-repellency of the outer fabric, apply a DWR coating after washing while the garment is still wet, then tumble dry on warm. For Ventile garments, machine wash individually on a warm gentle cycle with liquid detergent, then hang to dry. Iron on warm to reactivate the DWR treatment. All other Tilak and Poutnik pieces can be machine washed in cold water and hung to dry.

Taking inspiration from the hiking gear of yore, much of Tilak’s clothing features bright colorways and old-school colour blocking...Read more
