Modern Travel Trending for Toad&Co

New Spring 2016 line blends performance fabrics and treatments with modern sophisticated styles for men and women.

Santa Barbara, Calif. (July 28, 2015) – You know him when you see him: brown sandals and socks, a button-down polyester shirt and the dreaded zip-off pants. The traditional wardrobe for American travelers is sorely overdue for an update. Today, Toad&Co (formerly Horny Toad) introduces its Spring 2016 line, focusing on outdoor lifestyle and modern travel apparel with casual, comfortable styles made with performance fabrics and treatments that easily adapt to any environment.

“For us, modern travel is all about one bag with endless possibilities. Clothes designed with versatility and stealth performance so you can get dressed for the day and embrace whatever comes your way, with style that lets you be yourself anywhere.” says Sarah Matt, Toad&Co’s marketing director.

Brand new for Spring 2016, Toad&Co’s Debug line features Insect Shield® Technology for effective, odorless insect protection through at least seventy washings. The EPA-approved, active ingredient in Insect Shield® is tightly bonded to the fabric fibers so that it retains effective repellency through the life of the product. 

As Toad&Co consistently looks to enhance both function and fashion in its line, the introduction of Insect Shield® Technology allows the company to help consumers mitigate risk around various diseases spread by insects while avoiding the safari fashion statement. 

Highlighted in the new line is the Men’s Debug UPF Stretch Shirt. Designed with versatility in mind, this shirt cuts breeze coming off the shore, provides relief in bug-infested woodlands, shields skin from the sun out on the river and transitions seamlessly to happy hour at the local brewpub. The fabric combines stretch, sun protection, wicking and wrinkle-resistance, so the Debug UPF Stretch Shirt not only travels well, but transitions easily from city life to the outdoors.  

Another key piece for Spring 2016 is the Women’s Debug UPF Lightness Tunic. Tailored for a flattering silhouette, this shirt won’t compromise fashion for function. Walk the streets of old town, explore century old churches or enjoy dinner at the night café; the Lightness Tunic allows wearers to feel city chic while simultaneously beating the elements. Packing light will never be an issue as this shirt stands up to city life just as well as adventures on the river, ocean or trail. 

The Women’s Debug UPF Stretch Pants are made from a polyester-spandex blend that flexes to your every move while an elastic waistband and drop-in hand pockets provide maximum comfort. These pants feature hidden pockets and UPF protection, and will maintain Insect Shield® Technology throughout the lifetime of the garment. 

The Gemma Dress is the perfect travel piece for every woman. Showcasing both fashion and function, this dress allows you to walk the city streets, hang by the lake, enjoy an afternoon hike and dress up for a night out. Made from quick-drying, lightweight stretch fabric with UPF protection women are free to explore without fear of heat, humidity or even a little rain. A hidden zip pocket allows travelers to stash necessities, while a synch waist provides style and versatility. This no-fuss, never-clingy spandex-polyester woven handles travel, heat and water with ease.
