Six Shoulder Season Essentials

Crappy weather doesn’t mean you should stay inside

(Jason Heaton)

Late fall brings temperature swings, grey skies, and sudden rain—or snow—squalls. But that’s no excuse for not getting outside. After all, there’s no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate gear choices.

These boots were developed for the decks of Alaskan fishing boats but the waterproof upper and non-slip rubber outsole work just as well anywhere things get sloppy. A wicking neoprene liner keeps the inside from getting swampy and the pull straps make them the perfect grab-and-go boots to keep in the back of your truck.

Faherty Tech Poncho ($186)

The recycled polyester cotton blend of this pullover is water resistant but isn’t noisy or stiff like an ordinary ballpark rain poncho. Details like the built-in visor on the hood, mesh lining, storm flap and waterproof zipper put the “tech” in Tech Poncho, yet the beachy, slightly psychedelic print is decidedly chill.

The unique three-zipper design of this 21-liter pack may appear to be a design gimmick, but is remarkably functional, giving quick access to your gear no matter how much you’ve crammed inside. A zippered lid pocket holds bits and bobs while the inner sleeve will nestle up to a 15-inch laptop. 500D Cordura is ultra-tough for rough and tumble forays, whether in town or on the trail.

This traditional fisherman’s sweater is made from the wool of sheep from Donegal, Ireland, endowed with a natural lanolin that is soft to the touch and adds a measure of water repellency. The classic cable knit style is chunky and timeless, warm enough to be worn as outerwear in all but the coldest weather.

Compact EDC Kit ($60)

Most everyday carry items end up a jumbled mess, crammed into multiple pockets but Huckberry’s EDC kit puts it all in one compact package. A knife blade and multitool with pry tool, bottle opener, multiple hex bit and screwdrivers, and four wrenches fold together and still has room for two of your keys, thanks to the customizable Keysmart chassis.
