The Seon Transporter was our favorite indoor climbing pack in 2017 because of its mix of commuter-savvy features. It has a padded laptop sleeve in one compartment, a separate chute for climbing gear, and a ventilated pocket for your climbing shoes (or gym sneakers). We can't get enough of this sleek, multi-purpose pack.

This simple toiletry kit has enough space for the essentials, but won’t take up too much room in your bag. The water-resistant lining makes it easy to clean and keeps any potential spills contained. Plus, the triangular design means it will sit upright on any surface—like your bathroom countertop—and is easy to find what you need.
In 2017, we recommended these pants in our roundup of the best tailgating gear. We love the 12-ounce duck canvas and double front panels, which offer just enough protection for scrapes against rock. The streamlined fit makes them look clean enough to wear to the bar or out to dinner as well—just be sure to brush off the chalk.
We love the Klettersack for its beautiful, high-quality design. Our tester praised the bag's bomber construction, writing "the 22-liter pack features 1,000-denier Cordura fabric and heavy duty hardware so it'll put up with years of day-hike abuse."
We recommended these Accessory Bags for holding small essentials like ChapStick, car keys, and a phone. They're constructed with Cordura, pack cloth, and a heavy-duty YKK zipper. Each one is handmade in Colorado so you can feel good about supporting a U.S.-made brand.
Bandanas have an endless amount of uses (neckwear, dogwear, headband, etc.) and United by Blue’s version was one of our favorites from our 2019 Summer Buyer’s Guide. The bandana uses 100 percent organic cotton, and for each product sold, UBB removes one pound of trash from our oceans and waterways.
These pants are specifically designed for fat biking and are exactly what you need to keep cycling even when the temperatures drop. We put on the the Fat Jack when we wanted a comfy mid-weight option for chilly rides. Club Ride added smart features like a weather-resistant outer and zippered side leg pockets for snack storage.
Though this versatile tank was built for riding, it's one of our favorites for gym workouts. The compression knit jersey fabric is quick-drying, and the two drop-in pockets are perfect for holding your EDC essentials. Plus, the mesh back panel provides extra ventilation for when you work up a sweat.
When it's too warm to wear jeans, we reach for these shorts. With two percent spandex built in, the Joe Dirt has extra stretch, yet lends the classic durability of cotton. In our review of the best adventure-ready denim, we said: “We’ve been wearing these nonstop on and off the bike for weeks.”
Kelty brought back the external frame pack but with a modern twist. The Zyp uses a lightweight steel frame and a suspension system that doesn't suffocate your back. “I found it light and incredibly comfortable despite the water, camera, and food I was carrying,” our gear editor wrote.
If the idea of a climbing-specific sports bra sounds strange to you, you’re not alone. Our editor felt the same way until she tried the Beyond the Wall bra. She especially appreciated the high-cut neck and the thick crisscross straps, which “feels modest without being restrictive."
We called this the “the most portable SUP ever" in our 2019 Summer Buyer’s Guide. The board, pump, and included paddle all stow in a backpack. “The board’s length means it has less than exceptional glide, but 32 inches of width give it stability, and it was incredibly maneuverable,” we wrote.
We featured the Rounder in our selection of the best puffy vests. It melds classic western style with modern materials, like a water-resistant, rip-stop outer shell and Primaloft One insulation. Outside contributor Graham Averill wrote: “We like the touch of corduroy on the shoulders and the front snap pockets.”
The Cannons are some of our favorite women's sneakers. “Every aspect of this sneaker uses environmentally sustainable materials and construction,” our tester writes, “but it doesn’t look like a 'green' shoe, and that’s the point.” The synthetic upper uses recycled plastic bottles and the soles use Bloom foam made from repurposed algae.
