OVERLOCK/MERROWED EDGE


An overlock stitch or a merrowed edge is an overedge seam that finishes off a raw edge on a variety of fabrics, or attaches/edges two pieces of fabric together. An overlock sewing machine that cuts the edges of the cloth as it is fed through the machine is called a serger, although some are made without cutters. Sergers are used both in an industrial setting and in the home sewing market for edging, hemming and seaming. Overlock stitches can also be extremely versatile, as they can be used for decoration or reinforcement.

MEN'S HORIZONTAL DR. COOL SHIRT
This shirt is constructed using Coolcore's patented chemical-free moisture and sweat activated material to make sweat work for you. Rather than a simple wicking technology, the material delivers three distinct functions: wicking, moisture circulation, and regulated evaporation to reduce the fabric's surface temperature by up to 30%. Unlike other workout shirts Dr. Cool is chemical-free so that cooling benefits last the life of the shirt.

KATHMANDU ARCHON 65L BACKPACK v4
If you're new to multi-day hiking, or enjoy tackling the occasional Great Walk, the 65L Archon is the pack for you: sturdy and reliable, made from tough Cordura® fabric, it has everything you need (bottle pockets, pole and bed-roll attachments) and nothing you don't. The easily adjustable RS2 harness has a small to XL range built in to the harness design. The padded and stiffened hip-belt and shaped alloy frame-stays transfer the load where it needs to be, while the padded EVA shoulder straps, adjustable sternum straps and padded back panel makes the trek over the Tongariro Crossing more comfortable.
