With the rolling waves of the Atlantic on one side and the rugged landscapes of the Irish west coast on the other, our love for the great outdoors is a testament to the beauty that surrounds us. It's this shared passion for nature and exploration that has us over the moon about introducing Passenger to Portwest – The Outdoor Shop.

 

So let’s dive into why Passenger is about to become your new favorite brand.

 

Passenger are a lifestyle and clothing brand born from a life of travel, music and a love of water. We’ll take you back to 2012 and it was while travelling the west coast of British Columbia, Canada with their dog Ralph that Richard & Alexa Sutcliffe were inspired to create the brand.

 

Where is Passenger clothing based?

 

Passenger clothing weaves its magic in the picturesque landscapes of the UK, more precisely in the lush surroundings of the New Forest, Hampshire. This is where each piece of clothing begins its journey, inspired by the nearby ocean and forest and the desire to roam freely. Crafted with the adventurer in mind, Passenger's products are not only designed in this tranquil location but are also brought to life with a commitment to sustainability and a deep-rooted love for the outdoors.

 

Where is Passenger clothing made?

 

Passenger are committed to a transparent supply chain and so their website lists their suppliers from Morocco, Portugal and Hong Kong. You can see the full list of their suppliers here.

Designed to wander and made to roam, each piece is a blend of comfort and style, perfect for the unpredictable Irish weather or wherever your journey takes you. From cozy flannels that whisper tales around the campfire to waterproof jackets that laugh in the face of rain, Passenger has you covered.
