It shouldn’t take a jeenyus to tell you that domestic travel will be our main form of escape in the coming year. 

Alas, hear I am: Domestic travel will be our main form of escape in the coming year.

And you know what? Maybe that’s for the best. We get so caught up on this wave in Africa, that strip club in Panama, etc. etc. that we neglect the robust beauty of our own native lands.

Whether you live in the Americas, Australasia, Africa, Europe, or even France, there are probably a dozen visually stunning places you haven’t visited yet, and some of them might even have waves.

And remember: traveling domestically can still have that off-the-grid feel. Just because you’re “home”, doesn’t mean you need to seek the comfort of a familiar road, restaurant, or abode. The best way to escape in your own country is to get out in the country, which is to say, places where nature is abundant and reception is naught. 

Whether you’re trekking through the bush or frolicking in petunia fields, O’Neill’s new TRVLR series has you covered for all of your domestic (or even sneaky cross-border) jaunts.

Let’s take a look at their new outdoor capsule. 

Convoy Hybrid Pants


When you’re in the thick of it, the last thing you need is your legs getting torn up by sticks, bugs, or whatever other marginally-abrading entities exist in the wild. It’s also nice to keep your legs relatively dry and retain functional mobility. The Convoy Hybrid Pants tick all of these boxes and more, offering resilient but stretchy fabric, an elastic waistband, and a water-resistant exterior.

Lindenwood Superfleece


I haven’t worn a shirt in two years. But if ever I was made to cover my upper half, this fleece jumper looks like one hell of an option. Built for caressing a man’s furry bosom and keeping his winter rolls under wraps, the Lindenwood Superfleece is a luxurious option for general gallivanting.

TRVLR Cargo Shorts


Maybe your missions are more equatorial in nature. That means you’ll need some breathing room for “the boys”, without sacrificing pocket space for general bushwhacking supplies. And while they’ve been prolifically mocked in pop culture, cargo shorts have been uncool for so long that they’re due for a renaissance. Dare we say that O’Neill is trendsetting here?

Odyssey TRVLR Backpack

The one item that is an absolute essential for any bipedal surf adventure is a slick and efficient backpack. The main requirements are space for your wetty, fins, water bottle, and wax. Water-resistance is a huge plus, as would be a jetpack attachment. The Odyssey TRVLR doesn’t have that last part, but it still looks supremely functional for most of the exploits we have in mind.
