We’re eyeing these steals at Huckberry’s annual Summer Sale, which lasts now through July 26

Outside columnist Jakob Schiller penned an ode to these shorts and praised them for their versatility. “Buy two pairs, and I promise that they’ll be all you need from June through October for the next five years,” he wrote.

When an oil company targeted the North Face with a tongue-in-cheek marketing campaign accusing the brand of hypocritical climate activism, it served as a reminder of the contentious—yet partially codependent—relationship between the outdoor and fossil fuel industries

Outside contributor Jason Heaton loves this Huckberry line: “Flint and Tinder, a collection made entirely in the U.S., enables lots of mixing and matching right through shoulder season.” The Crossback Work shirt is built from a burly looseweave twill flannel.

It has all the comfort and features you’d expect from a high-end performance shell, but at an affordable price

Made from the same polyester that Patagonia uses in its breathable shirts, this neck gaiter has UPF to protect your skin from the sun. We like to use it as a bandana or face covering to mop up sweat on sweltering days.

Contributor Bryan Rogala tested the Grill Armor gloves in his roundup of grilling accessories. “These gloves are made with a blend of extremely strong, fire-resistant fibers, so they won’t ignite or melt when exposed to an open flame—they’re rated to withstand temperatures up to 932 degrees,” he…

Columnist Jakob Schiller thinks the Readywares apron is a great gift for Dad: “Made from 20-ounce waxed canvas, it’s designed to protect his clothes and keep his most important tools at hand,” he wrote. “I’ve also used the apron for summer grilling.” This tool apron has about…

The Sun Runner might look ridiculous, but it provides a crucial shield from harmful UV rays. In his roundup of sun protection hats, columnist Jakob Schiller wrote: “The Sun Runner is great because it keeps you fully protected but can also be turned into a ‘normal’ hat…

Chickfly’s innovative zipperless fly makes for pee freedom

Made from the same polyester that Patagonia uses in its breathable shirts, this neck gaiter has a 50+ UPF rating to protect your skin from the sun. We like to use it as a bandana or face covering to mop up sweat on sweltering days.

We love this long-sleeve shirt for its discreet sun protection (50+ UPF rating). Thanks to the soft, quick-drying fabric, it still “manages to feel light and breezy,” according to our tester. Plus, the bright plaid colors are casual enough to wear around town as well as on the trail.

The Stretchdown is a staff favorite. “This puffy is made with a nylon-elastane face fabric that’s super stretchy, so it’s great for increased range of motion for climbing, hiking, and skiing,” said senior gear editor Ariella Gintzler.

Springtime means rainstorms, and the Venture 2 is a budget-friendly way to stay dry, whether you’re dodging drops on your way to work or stuck in a torrential downpour miles from the trailhead. Its 2.5-layer DryVent waterproof-breathable laminate and underarm vents dump unwanted heat buildup.

Six lady shredders, sizes 4 to 16, tried nearly all of the mountain-bike overshorts on the market to find the ones that truly fit, flatter, and perform

Our 2021 Summer Buyer’s Guide testers loved the Agility shorts for yoga: “Baggy shorts sag during inversions, but a too-svelte fit can make lunges awkward,” they wrote. “Manduka’s four-way-stretch Agility nails the balance.”…

This brushed cotton flannel is one of our go-to tops. The Junction’s medium cut and colorful plaid pattern looks good around any mountain town, and we dig the shirt’s two western-inspired chest pockets.

We included the Eddie in our roundup for the best sun shirts because it’s stretchy, dries fast, and has a UPF 50+ rating. “It’s as performance-minded as your favorite tech tee but good-looking enough to wear about town,” our tester said. Added style points for the pearl snaps.

This 800-fill water-resistant parka packs next-level warmth in a sleek package. The Hometown’s mid-thigh length provides a flattering fit while keeping you toasty on frigid outings around town. We especially like the roomy, adjustable hood.

These gifts will add a touch of flair to his wardrobe

This polyester microfiber neck gaiter is printed with a map of Grand Teton National Park. There are a dozen ways to wear sweat-wicking neck tubes like this one—we think it’s handy as a headband, too.

We featured these pants in our roundup of rain gear that looks good. “Most liquids, including coffee and rain, bead up and roll right off, keeping you dry and sharp,” wrote contributor Jakob Schiller. We like that the pants look nice enough for the office, but they’re also stretchy…

Seven simple options to throw on when the sun’s out

“The Beta weighs a hair over a pound, but it’s built from bombproof Gore-Tex Pro (the stuff many high-end ski jackets are made from),” wrote our Gear Guy in his guide to spring rain shells. “[It’s] packed with nice features, like a helmet-compatible hood, and has a…

Senior editor Ariella Gintzler loves the Houdini for its versatile, lightweight material. “The papery quality of the Houdini offers superior next-to-skin comfort; you can wear it over a short-sleeve shirt without that clammy shell sensation against your arms,” she writes. It’s billed as a trail-running shell, but works just…

We featured the Camp Pant in our 2021 Winter Buyer’s Guide roundup of the best men’s après gear. We like the variety of understated colors that match any top, and Gear Director Will Taylor called them “durable yet soft.”…

We featured the Crossrange in our 2018 Summer Buyer’s Guide. Its lenses “pump up detail and depth, even in flat light, while mirroring mitigates glare,” wrote tester Mike Steere. “It comes with swappable temple and nose pieces—one set more heavily rubberized for sport, one toned down for…
