The Mello does what it wants: it goes with the flow, rolls with the punches, takes it as it comes. You can’t pigeonhole Mello and put it in a neat box – Mello’s too mellow for that kind of thinking.
We’ve all got one of those rare pieces of outdoor kit: an item of clothing so comfortable and reliable that it transcends its original purpose and gets worn for absolutely everything. With a 4-way stretch for high strides and awkward bouldering moves, sweat wicking properties, and a durable knit to stand up to Derbyshire grit and rough indoor walls, the Mello Tight has your back. Or rather: your legs.
Close-fitting but not compressive, the tights have a mid to high-rise cut and deep waistband to ensure complete coverage and comfort when climbing or scrambling. This fit, combined with the flatlock seams, also ensures that the tights fit neatly under a harness or rucksack hip belt. The fabric is completely opaque to prevent any show-through and there’s a neat side pocket for smartphones and perpetual flapjack crumbs.

How It Is Made
We always choose the most environmentally preferable materials and are moving our entire range to recylced wherever possible.
Where It Is Made
Our products are made in the best factories in the world. We know the factories personally and they have all signed up to our Code of Ethics in our supply chain. This includes the Ethical Trading Initiative base code, fair pay, safe working environments, no child labour, no modern slavery, no bribery or corruption, no materials from conflict zones and humane farming methods.
Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.
We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
