What you wear has a big impact on your time on the trail. Choosing the right gear made for the task makes all the difference, avoiding any slipping, sliding, and bunching that might hold you back. Here’s a list of six of our favorite clothing essentials that will not only make your time on the trail more comfortable, but will add some style to your adventure as well. 

1. BKT Hat by Ciele 

Sun protection is crucial when hiking, and a great choice is a bucket hat. Lightweight and adjustable, the BKT hat by Ciele offers UPF 50+ protection on its brim and body, ensuring you stay shielded from harsh rays throughout the day. Moisture-wicking and fast-drying technology make it an ideal companion on those sunny or sweaty hiking trails, while reflective detailing adds a touch of safety during dusk or dawn hikes.

2. Lightweight Hiking Socks by Darn Tough 

Your feet bear the brunt of your hiking adventure, so give them the care they deserve with Darn Tough's lightweight hiking socks. Made from merino wool, nylon, and spandex, these socks offer breathability, durability, and a blister-free experience. The brand’s unconditional lifetime guarantee makes them a must-have addition to your hiking gear.

3. CoolNet UV Neck Gaiter by BUFF

Versatility and protection are what you get with a CoolNet UV Neck Gaiter. This hiking essential provides UPF 50+ UV protection while keeping you cool with its breathable, moisture-wicking fabric. Wear it as a headband, neck gaiter, or hat– the options are endless with this lightweight and packable piece.

Now that you have a gaiter for your neck, it’s time to focus on your feet. Muddy trails and loose debris can quickly turn a fantastic hike into a messy one. That's where Outdoor Research’s Hiking Gaiters come into play. These durable, breathable gaiters offer excellent protection, keeping your legs and footwear clean and dry. The secure, adjustable fit and instep strap make them easy to wear and remove, even on the go.

5. Merino Beanie by Smartwool 

Warmth, comfort, and style– the Merino Beanie by Smartwool delivers all three. This lightweight, moisture-wicking beanie made from 100% Merino wool ensures that you stay warm without overheating. Its clean finish seams ensure a comfortable fit, making it an excellent choice for those chilly mountain mornings. 

6. Stretch Belt by Arcade Belts 

Last but certainly not least, no hiking outfit is complete without an elastic hiking belt to keep your pants or shorts in place. Considered by many as the ultimate hiking pants belt, our very own Stretch Belts are designed for outdoor enthusiasts with comfort, durability, and style in mind. This belt for hiking features a low-profile design and weatherproof material that make it the perfect companion during hiking adventures. The hiking belt’s stretch fit and non-slip buckle ensure it stays in place, whether you’re outside for a few hours or a few days. With a lightweight hiking belt, say goodbye to constant adjusting and hello to a secure, comfortable fit on all your hiking adventures.
