Carabiners at the ready — it’s time to talk about gorpcore. Whether you’ve heard the word thrown around a million times by your friends who love to hike or if you’ve never heard the term until now, gorpcore is an aesthetic to know. But what is gorpcore? And is “gorp” even a real word?
It is now, thanks to the loyal fans of the outdoorsy style.
