We included this tank in our roundup of the best women’s running gear of 2019. Our tester said the Distance Tank was “sleek without looking like a racing singlet.” The tank is semi-fitted and uses a soft polyester blend making it ideal for warmer runs or gym sessions.
We recommend this pack for the remote worker. The 20-liter Wayfinder is a versatile everyday pack made from durable ripstop nylon. Plus, the pack as all the tech features you need for work travel like cord organizers and padded laptop sleeves.
This is the hoodie you’d want to pack when hiking the PCT. It’s highly compressible and has a lightweight synthetic fill, and the stretchy fleece side panels and underarms make the hoodie less bulky and more comfortable. We love the strategic insulation in the torso, arms, and hood. When paired with a shell, the Atom LT is a toasty midlayer for long resort days.
The SuperFly has served gear editor Jeremy Rellosa for years without fail. “I've taken this stove everywhere from Nepal to Patagonia, and it's kept my trail food warm and my backpack happy because it's easy to use, clean, and stow,” he says.
We feel good about wearing Threads 4 Thought. The brand uses recycled materials (much of it from a city in China that recycles 82 percent of its water) and makes comfy gear to boot. We dig the Moto's sleek ribbed material on the shins. These run a bit loose—we recommend sizing down.
This hard shell is part of our Gear Guy’s ultimate ski touring setup. “This is one of the most breathable hard shells I’ve tested,” he wrote. When you’re not using it, the shell packs down to the size of a tangerine and only weighs one pound.
We picked this messenger bag as one of our favorites for bike commuting in 2017. The Stark has a sleek, professional look with practical touches like magnetic pocket closures and reflective panels. The bag also has a 15-inch padded laptop compartment and a removable rainfly with its own stash pocket.
Stio released the first version of the Downwater Anorak last year and we loved it. “It has a laid-back style that goes great with jeans and even better with boardshorts, making it a versatile layer on the river or around town,” our tester said.
Stio released the first version of the Downwater Anorak last year and we loved it. Made from a rugged water-resistant nylon treated with UPF 50-plus sun protection, it fends off wind and water while still looking casual enough to wear around town.
The Storm is the perfect example of how far headlamps have come. It’s moderately priced but pumps out 350 lumens from a proximity beam—ideal for working in close quarters or as a spotlight when you’re on the trail. We really like the battery meter, which shows how much juice you have left in your AAAs. Oh, and it’s fully waterproof.
In our roundup of the best gloves of 2017, we said the Black Diamond’s Heavyweight gloves “were made for spring couloir season.” They have an impenetrable waterproof lining, so they can handle wet snow slush and the PrimaLoft insulation keeps your hands toasty even on frigid morning starts.
