We named the Kor the best soft shell of 2019 in our Summer Buyer’s Guide. The jacket is ideal for summit bids, big-wall climbs, and trail runs because it’s incredibly stretchy and breathable while still providing enough protection from wind and chill. Plus, the pockets are high enough to…

Outside contributor Wes Siler loves these pants so much he wrote an in-depth piece about its new design changes, showing how they’re even better than before. Siler writes: “The new Kebs are lighter, more durable, and have better freedom of movement.”…

Designed for comfort and versatility, the FWDS pant from Wrangler has four-way stretch, is made with moisture-wicking and quick-dry recycled polyester, and includes a secure zippered phone pocket. Wherever you move, FWDS gets you there.

We featured the Sol Defender in our 2021 Summer Buyer’s Guide roundup of the best climbing gear. “The Sol Defender looks like a normal hoodie, but it’s packed with technical qualities, like its UPF 30+ rating, durable polyester blend, and wicking grid interior,” we wrote.

Marine Layer makes supremely soft clothing that feels buttery on the skin. That’s why our reviews editor likes the men’s yoga joggers for light workouts and lounging around the house.

We named this jacket the best uphill layer in our 2020 Winter Buyer’s Guide. “It’s as comfy as a cotton sweatshirt and treated with an interesting heat-regulating technology called ActiveTemp, made from a non-Newtonian polymer that becomes a liquid when cold, helping to block transmission of warm vapor,” our…

The Micro Puff was our favorite jacket of 2018 because there’s a lot to love about this warm, super-light piece. “The PlumaFill is tacked between sheets of ten-denier nylon fabric in long strands, so it won’t shift and create cold spots,” our tester wrote.

“Don’t be deceived by the Boulder’s classic cut—this men’s shoe is anything but traditional,” wrote our Buyer’s Guide tester. “It’s ultralight and packable, with zero heel drop to promote a natural gait. The wide toe box has room for thick socks, but for serious insulation, look elsewhere.”…

The Baltoro 65 won our Gear of the Year award in the 2018 Summer Buyer’s Guide. Testers said it offers a “full buffet of features along with excellent load-carrying comfort and very low weight.”…

When it’s too warm to wear jeans, we reach for these shorts. With spandex built in, these have extra stretch, yet lend the durability of cotton. “We’ve been wearing these nonstop on and off the bike for weeks,” we wrote.

The Tarantulace is one of the best climbing shoes for beginners. “Rather than the sharp-angled toe of most climbing shoes, the Tarantulace has more of a squared silhouette that offers a bit more wiggle room,” contributor Olivia Harlow wrote in her roundup of the best gear for those new…

Gear Guy columnist Joe Jackson picked the Metal Vent Tech tee as one of his favorite workout tops. “In addition to wearing it for runs, this was my favorite top to don for garage kettlebell swings,” he wrote.

This jacket is made with burly, seven-ounce waxed sailcloth and lined with soft polyester. Like fine leather, it will develop a patina that looks better the more you wear it. “You’ll have this jacket for years to come and will wear it so often that the price tag will start…

Our testers hailed the Stretchdown as one of their favorite winter puffies. “Mountain Hardwear developed a loom that weaves the face fabric and lining simultaneously and creates the baffles without stitching,” one tester wrote. “A snug hood and 800-fill down retained warmth on 20-degree mornings.”…
