Between the Stitches: June 2022 Recap
With a focus on travel and the outdoors throughout the month on June, we’re proud to have brought you articles on everything from how our very own Graphic Designer lives, works and travels in a van to how two fathers in our community balance fatherhood, fitness, and everything in between, to outdoor adventure destinations you may have never heard of. We also continued the mental health conversation with a month long 5K challenge to raise funds and awareness for a non-profit, The Hidden Opponent.
Our hope is that we offered some insight, inspiration and tools you can use as you see fit. Before we launch in July, we’re taking a moment to reset and reflect on all that happened at Rhone this past month.
Let's Talk: The Pursuit
During the month of June the Rhone team and greater community tackled a 5K everyday–whether that was by foot, bike or rower. It was our mission this month to raise funds and awareness for The Hidden Opponent – a non-profit raising awareness for student-athlete mental health and changing the stigma within sports culture.

Adventure is calling…
Brock Reichert, an Emergency Medicine trained Physicians Assistant, father and outdoor fitness and adventure enthusiast dropped his picks for outdoor adventure destinations you likely have heard of–but may very well want to explore.
“Forever alive, forever forward, the road lies before us.” – Walt Whitman, Song of the Open Road
As men, and most especially as fathers, we embrace the idea that life is all about moving forward. Learning from past failures, hoping for a bright future, and finding beauty in present progress.
As we took time to acknowledge and thank all those fathers and father figures in our life this Father’s Day, we sat down with our very own Co-Founder Ben Checketts to learn how he embraces this idea of moving forward throughout fatherhood.
It’s you against you. Test your body, test your mind. Getting uncomfortable is oftentimes the precursor to finding growth. We’re bringing it back to basics with a full body workout done solely on the trails that will have you mentally and physically battling it out.

Introducing: The Versatility Pant
Our team has tried, and we hate to admit it, we failed. We failed to find something these pants can't do. Here's the good news: we succeeded in making a pant that is lightweight, flexible, and incredibly versatile.
The Bolinas Collection. There's been so much love for it that we decided it was time to give it a refresh. So, what can you expect? For the pants and the shorts, expect to find slanted patch pockets, a flatter waistband, heritage drawstrings, and ribbed detailing along the leg openings. As for the hoodie, a sleek buttonless neck, side seam pockets, and a traditional silhouette.
