Stylish hiking clothes for anything the trail throws your way
Planning on hitting the trail anytime soon? Whether you’re spending a sunny afternoon in your local wildlife park or commencing an epic multi-day thru-hike, we’ve got technical gear designed to keep you comfortable, well-ventilated, and protected from the elements.
It's important to think in layers, so choose gear that’s compatible with a few different outfit and weather scenarios to minimize unneeded bulk. Soft woolen baselayers wick moisture and stay clean longer (click the link to learn more about the benefits of a woolly wardrobe), while DWR clothing sheds water in a flash. If temperature regulation is big for you, outer layers with leg and pit zips will keep you comfy on long treks in variable conditions.
Every square inch of precious storage space counts when you’re on the move with a pack on your back, so light, packable layers that stuff into their own pockets are a godsend in the great outdoors. Pro tip — store your smaller articles of hiking clothing in packing cubes to save even more space.
Once you’ve figured out which gaps to fill in your hiking wardrobe, check out some options from MEC, Patagonia, Arc’teryx and more. And if you need pointers on putting it all together, we’ve got a great guide on how to layer for outdoor activities. Happy hiking!
