Last Christmas, our Gear Guy got these athletic shorts for his father-in-law because they have “solid performance in a subtle package.” The Legacy shorts are incredibly soft and comfortable but look like your standard, no-frill workout shorts. They’re ideal for those who don’t want any flashy tech.

We recommended this long sleeve layer to get you through shoulder season. The Work Shirt isn’t quite as burly as a shacket, but it’s thicker than a regular button-down. “Made from a durable blend of hemp and organic cotton, the Work Shirt feels broken in on first wear,” we wrote.
Contributor Jakob Schiller included these pants in his holiday style guide. Schiller found the slim fit flattering and said the spandex-cotton blend “means they’re great on the bike if you commute to work.” They’re also stylish enough to wear at both the office and dinner parties.
We love Huckberry’s Flint and Tinder line because it’s affordable and classically stylish. These socks are no exception. We also dig that they’re built with wool, so your toes won’t freeze at the campsite.
Last year, our gear editors rounded up the new fall sweaters we were obsessed with, and this sweater topped the list. The Westray Crew uses a chunky cable stitch and Donegal tweed that's perfect for chilly summer nights by a campfire or brisk fall days in the office. “The Westray Crew looks as cozy as it feels,” our tester wrote.
Make sure your beer and chocolate bars stay yours with this cooler, which, when paired with a locking kit, is certified bear resistant from the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee. To earn that distinction, the Venture had to survive an hour of being manhandled by a grizzly.
Contributor Jakob Schiller recommends this hoodie for travelers because of its polyester-merino blend. The fabric keeps you warmer than most cotton hoodies and dries quicker if you get caught in a rainstorm. Plus, the merino naturally fights odors after you work up a sweat.
Gear editor Ariella Gintzler loves this base layer tank top. “This buttery-soft piece is form-fitting enough to layer but loose enough to wear alone,” she wrote. The merino wool and nylon blend fabric also combines a mix of durability with odor and moisture management.
If all you want is a solid foam roller that will help calm your lower back and legs after a tough workout, look no further than the Grid. It’s nothing fancy—just a hollow core wrapped in ridged EVA foam to release those tight muscles.
In our roundup of the best women’s running shorts, Janji’s were the runner-up for best short shorts. Our tester liked the three-inch inseam which she said “was long enough for me to feel covered but short enough that it wasn’t restrictive.”
We included this sports bra as one of the best pieces of ultrarunning gear in our 2019 Summer Buyer’s Guide. “This bra’s light poly-spandex mix dries fast, and the thin crossback straps are surprisingly supportive,” we wrote. Plus, we liked the cutout above the bottom band for airing out under-boob sweat.
This trail runner is one of our top choices for big alpine outings. “With its narrow last, rock-solid fit, and big six-millimeter lugs, it can quickstep through sketchy rock piles and bank tight switchbacks with confidence,” wrote our tester.
“If you’re a backpacker who obsesses over ounces and grams, the Platypus SoftBottle is the one for you,” wrote our Gear Guy in his roundup of the best plastic reusable water bottles. It weighs just 1.2 ounces and rolls up when empty, so it doesn’t take up too much space in your pack.
In our search for 2019’s best winter travel gear, we discovered this collapsable duffle. If you’re the type to rack up souvenirs, the Cargo Hauler is perfect because “it won’t burst when you stuff it full of tchotchkes,” we wrote. Plus, the removable backpack straps make it easy to convert from a carry-on to checked bag if it gets too full.
In our 2019 Winter Buyer’s Guide, the Etip Grip was one of our favorite pairs of gloves. “This light single-layer glove is perfect for cool-weather cycling, nordic skiing, or simply having in your pack when the weather turns foul,” our tester wrote. Plus, the textured palm and fingers are extra grippy and touch screen compatible with all five fingers.
Biltong is a South African snack that was brought to the U.S. in recent years. It’s like jerky, but more tender. Kalahari’s version is straight-forward, with no sugar or soy and packed with protein (16 grams per ounce). Our favorite flavor is garlic.
