Stylish and versatile gear for your next adventure.
SmartWool NTS Micro 150 Crew Sweater
This 100 percent merino-wool base layer ($75) packs well, dries fast, and naturally resists odor. Besides being workout friendly, it has a scoop neck and side seams that are refined enough to wear just about anywhere.
Crumpler Wren Handbag
The key to on-the-road organization? Keep it simple. The weather-resistant Wren ($135) has spots for phone, notebook, tablet, and chargers but doesn’t overwhelm with pockets.
Lstn Beech Troubadour Headphones
For long plane rides, a good pair of headphones are a godsend. The Troubadour’s ($150) generous ear cups are furnished with reclaimed wood, and they sound as impressive as they look.
Nau Compleat Stripe Dress
Throw it over a bathing suit or under a cardigan: the cotton-like modal fabric, made from sustainably harvested beech trees, dries fast, and the A-line skirt suits every frame ($98). Bonus: it never wrinkles.
Clarks Faraway Charm shoes
Lightweight, with a shock-absorbing latex midsole, these moccasins ($105) can handle long days of urban exploration. The leather upper and lining are surprisingly breathable, and the leather laces and stitching wear equally well in a café or on the trail.
Dodo Custom iPad Case
Disguised as your travel journal, Dodo’s bamboo case ($75) allows easy access to all toggles and sensors, as well as various configurations for typing or watching movies. Lightweight and durable but, sadly, as we discovered, not entirely spillproof.
Merrell Anouk Long Jacket
The midthigh Anouk ($109) is beautifully tailored, with guidebook-size pockets, a generous hood, and a high collar that offers protection in wind and moderate rain. The trade-off of the silky fabric: it won’t stand up to a downpour.
Patagonia Reversible Tuhuata Top and Hatutu Bottom
Oakley Feedback Sunglasses
Oakley reimagines the aviator with a slight wrap and a more moderate lens shape ($150). The nose pads help it stay put when things get bumpy, and they’re designed not to snag in wind-blown hair.
Prana Estelle Fedora
The Estelle ($36) looks great and offers lightweight, breathable sun protection. The grosgrain hat-band gives a snug fit on the inside and a splash of color on the outside.
