With the resilience of the average (extraordinary) woman in mind, we’ve created a pair of pants suited to meet most, if not all of these roles. The magic formula?

Co Gear supports National Op Shop week

Why We Support Shopping Second-hand

Okay, so it’s not just the love for bargain shopping that makes the Co Gear team a big fan of op shops – it’s about how it reduces the impact on our environment as well. Opting to purchase second-hand saves additional pollutants such as dyes and bleach being released into the environment, as opposed to when new garments are made.
