We rounded up our favorite fall fishing gear and this fly box topped the list. This 1.8 inch thick box “still opens wide enough to accommodate a mind-boggling quantity of flies,” our tester wrote.
Kari Traa’s base layers are specifically designed for women, by women, and the Rose pant is a perfect example of that. The pant uses playful, Nordic-inspired patterns that don’t feel overly girly. Plus, it's made from 100% merino wool that wicks moisture, dries quickly, and resists odor.
Pro cyclist Cory Williams recommended the Cannondale CAAD12 105 as a good beginner budget road bike. This model has the same aluminum alloy frame from Cannondale’s racing version so you get a smooth, high-functioning ride, but uses other low-cost parts to keep the price down.
We picked the Bonatti Race jacket as a fall running essential because it sheds rain, but doesn’t trap a lot of heat. “The jacket helps me warm up for the first few miles, keeps me dry on wet days, and can be stuffed into a pocket and almost forgotten when I don’t need it,” our tester wrote.
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."
Cycling gloves take the sting out of rough roads and trails, help with bar handling, and keep your hands comfortable if the weather gets chilly. In this year’s Summer Buyer’s Guide, we especially liked Giro’s Riv’ette CS gloves because they are thin, light, and fitted so you barely notice them.
The North Face’s ThermoBall synthetic insulation came out in 2013 after years of design and quality testing. After we got our hands on it, we realized the insulation will hold warmth even when (a little) wet, is lightweight, and is packable enough to stuff into the jacket's own pocket.
Last year, we included this Icebreaker base layer in our roundup of fall running essentials for men. Outside’s tester, Andy Cochrane, wrote: “Icebreaker’s merino wool base layers are made to fit tight, stretch with you, and help regulate heat and moisture.”
The ZX/3 has the same features of the award-winning Z1's—including a sturdy sole and anti-microbial footbed—but in a slightly more stylish, three-strap design. Plus, like all Chaco shoes, these sandals have podiatrist-approved footbeds that provide all-day comfort with reliable arch support.
Fire pits are nothing new, but Fireside Outdoor's version is one of the lightest we've tested. We loved how easy it was to set up (a little over a minute) on a variety of surfaces. We didn't have to worry about damaging the patio we tested it on, thanks to the heat shield underneath. It's super compact, too, making it ideal for car camping trips.
In 2018, we named this tank “the tank of summer." The fabric blends merino wool and Tencel, which Outside’s video producer, Emily Reed, says, “feels like heaven on your skin.” The merino wool also makes the shirt odor-resistant and quick-drying—perfect for hot days or a lunchtime workout.
