Mountain Hardwear Kor Cirrus Hybrid Hoodie ($200)
Multi-climate trips are a breeze with this lightweight jacket, which boasts 40 grams of synthetic insulation and stretchy, DWR-treated ripstop nylon that sheds water and dumps heat.
Patagonia Men’s Seersucker Pullover Shirt ($59)
This airy organic-cotton pullover hits the sweet spot between fashion and function. Three buttons provide venting on hot walking tours, while the silhouette—mellow dropped hem in back, curved hem in front—looks classy tucked in or hanging out.
Wigwam Kelston Socks ($24)
The Kelston’s combination of merino wool and spandex naturally minimizes stink and calf swelling on long slogs. Bonus: the seamless toe limits bulk.
Ecco Soft 8 Shoes ($180)
Comfort and sleek, full-grain leather come together to make Ecco’s Soft 8 the ultimate travel shoe. Walk in it all day, then wear it to dinner without inviting blisters or disapproving looks.
Outdoor Research Vantage Air Hat ($30)
The soft, rugged brim of OR’s Vantage hat won’t get bent out of shape during days-long travel legs, and neither will you. Credit the wide holes in the mesh, which offer superb ventilation.
Duer No Sweat Shirt ($39)
This is the only travel top you’ll ever need. Made of a stretchy, moisture-wicking blend of spandex, cotton, and Tencel, it feels casual, not technical, and won’t lose its shape or trap odors.
Kitsbow Cuyuna Pants ($185)
Dressy looks belie two-way-stretch comfort. You also get front pockets deep enough for a wallet and phone, and a passport pocket just below the waistband.
Mammut Delta X Shorts ($165)
Packed down, these 6.2-ounce shorts fit inside your sunglasses case. But they have features that matter: side vents, a secure rear pocket, and a DWR coating that sheds rain on misty hikes.
