Patagonia R1 Fleece Pullover

Some might consider this to be the single best technical mid layer ever made. The reason being is that it is excellent at shedding moisture and keeps you comfortable in a wide variety of conditions. Patagonia is celebrating their 20th anniversary of this iconic piece of clothing in 2019. As a far as we are concerned this fleece deserves a place in the outdoor clothing hall of fame. Just telling it like it is.

Arc’teryx Proton FL Jacket

In our last Gear Guide we wrote about the Atom LT and dubbed it as one of the most versatile jackets ever made. The Proton FL is the little brother/sister to the Atom LT. Utilizing the Fortius™ Air 20 fabric for wind resistance, and an outer shell material made of Octa® Loft, which helps the jacket breathe, you are guaranteed to stay comfortable. It uses less insulation than the Atom LT, making it the ideal alternative when spring rolls around.

Arc’teryx Alpha SL Jacket

When the spring showers come pouring down, you will be thankful to have this rain shell that is equipped with Gore-Tex and Paclite technology. Despite the jackets trim fit, the e3D design provides a full range of motion, perfect for all your mountaineering and climbing adventures. The two-piece Hemlock inserts are additionally beneficial when climbing to ensure the jacket won’t slip under your harness.

Girlfriend Collective Compression High-Rise Leggings and Classic Paloma Bra

Girlfriend Collective makes sustainable activewear from post-consumer plastic water bottles and fishing nets without sacrificing comfort and style. Wearing a colorful set of Girlfriends can give you some reprieve that you are part of the solution and not the problem of plastic pollution.

Outerknown Sojourn Pocket Tee

Outerknown has been taking some pretty radical steps in the clothing industry. Their Sojourn Pocket Tee puts an environmentally friendly spin on a clothing classic. This shirt is made from 100% Peruvian organic cotton that is sourced from 390 local farmers throughout Peru.

Helly Hansen Women’s Active Anorak

Helly Hansen hails from Norway and the products they make are built to withstand the wettest and harshest weather conditions on Earth. This Anorak was built with a pullover design that incorporates Helly Hansen Tech Protection; a fully waterproof and breathable material.
