Although the outdoors and fashion aren’t typically a match made in heaven, it surely can be done. Outdoor adventures are usually made for those not afraid to get down and dirty and are not too keen on the way they look.
But for those who are, looking good can still be made a priority while discovering the outdoors. Lucky for some, a few modern outfitters are bringing function and fashion together, creating a fashionable look from head to toe while remaining the functional and sturdy design required of the outdoors.
Patagonia Micro Puff Hoody
Patagonia is an established and trusted brand, with the superbly flexible Nano Air line being one of its most popular. Another favorite is the warm, ultra-light Micro Puff jacket.
It is made using a combination of water-resistant, yet very thin Pertex Quantum rip-stop nylon shell. It also features eco-friendly, synthetic PlumaFill insulation that keeps you warm even if the hoodie gets wet.
Stio Hometown Down Hooded Jacket
Stio has carefully designed this jacket to be sturdy enough to keep the elements out and warmth in. It’s soft on the inside and has several helpful features like a cinch cord to adjust the hood.
The Stio Hometown Down Hooded Jacket is top of the line and will meet all your winter needs. While it is an investment, priced at $299, we believe it is one that is completely worth it.
Patagonia Nine Trails 28L Backpack
The Patagonia Micropuff Hoody is not the only Patagonia item we love. We also recommend you grab the Patagonia Nine Trails 28L Backpack too. It is very light, yet convenient and comfortable, offering lots of capacity to carry as much gear as you need.
The backpack is also versatile, rugged, durable, and water-resistant with two organizational pockets as well as one main compartment. It features a comfortable back panel designed to keep excess heat and moisture from building up as well.
Mountain Hardware Stretch Ozonic Ball Cap
This super lightweight hat will keep you stylish and protected in any weather condition. From sun to rain, this waterproof and windproof hat will get you through any outdoor adventure.
The hat’s four-way, all over stretch will keep you comfortable and makes it easy to pack.
Danner Portland Select Light
You can’t go wrong with Danner’s Portland Select Light collection if you’re seeking transitional boots that look just as good on the trail as off it. This collection is entirely made in the USA and designed with the modern explorer in mind, drawing upon inspiration from Danner’s iconic military and hiking boots, all while blending the best of Pacific Northwest street style.
These boots are very durable as they provide ultimate protection from the elements and can withstand mud, rain, and so much more. Made with full grain leather, this shoe delivers outstanding protection, support, and are relatively lightweight for those looking to carry as little weight as possible.
LL Bean Bean Boots
The popularity of L.L.Bean is no accident – this company has been manufacturing shoes, clothing, outdoor gear, and more to help people enjoy the great outdoors for over a century.
Their Bean Boots nearly always garner a lengthy wait list thanks to their style and ability to protect from water, rain, and slush.
