We picked the 10-Year as one of our favorite hoodie upgrades. “The cotton-polyester blend is warm enough for cool-weather workouts,” our tester wrote. Flint and Tinder made it durable enough to last for the next decade, so if you rip it or tear it, they’ll repair it…

Like many Minnetonka slippers, the fluffy interior lining of the Camp Slip On keeps your feet toasty, while the rubber outsole allows you to transition between the campsite, walks around the neighborhood, and your house. Testers loved the soft suede construction, which only adds to the Slip On’s comfort.
Our Gear Guy praised this shirt in his test of the best performance flannels. “The Fjord deserves points for its 100 percent organic cotton, which felt soft and supple, and it had just enough give to never slow me down as I rode the Jabberwocky Trail outside…
Outside columnist Jakob Schiller loves his Lowdown Flips because of their durability and comfort: “I’ve probably put over 400 miles on them,” he wrote. “Now the footbeds bear an imprint of my toes, the soles are slightly worn down, and the webbing is filthy. But they aren’t…
Keen makes some of the most comfortable sandals we’ve tested and the Astoria West is no exception. While we wouldn’t wear these for thru-hiking, we like them as a daily driver and for casual day hikes. The grippy rubber sole kept us confident on wet rock. “Perfect…
In our Gear Guy’s test of the best men’s flip flops, he highlighted the Nohona Ulana’s classy vibe: “You could almost wear a pair in the office on a casual summer Friday,” he wrote. “On flat ground, the supple leather toe post and subtly contoured footbed made…

The Cannons are some of our favorite women’s sneakers. “Every aspect of this sneaker uses environmentally sustainable materials and construction,” our tester writes, “but it doesn’t look like a ‘green’ shoe, and that’s the point.” The synthetic upper uses recycled plastic bottles and the soles use Bloom…
Like many other pants made for the outdoors, the Konfidant is constructed from a light and breathable blend of cotton, nylon, and spandex. But the real story with these pants is the vents. They’re everywhere—in the rear pockets, in the front pockets, in the thigh pockets, on the back of…

You probably haven’t worn a pair of cargo pants in a while, and we don’t blame you—they’re often too baggy and dorky. But 686 has reimagined this nineties staple. The Anything Multi is made from a streamlined, stretchy, and breathable nylon-spandex blend coated in DWR. And it has 13 pockets,…
Roark Revival bills the Layover as made for travel, but really it performs in all kinds of situations. The slim fit looks good anywhere, and cotton, nylon, and elastane mean these pants move and breathe well. Also, there are nice details aplenty, like the vented mesh panel on the back…
Consider these a must for any outdoorsman’s wardrobe. The Quandary is made from 95 percent nylon and 5 percent spandex for a light, stretchy pair of pants that dries super quickly. We like the wicking mesh on the waistband, the zippered rear and thigh pockets, and that most of that…

Duer is known for creating stretchy, performance-friendly denim, but its new Weightless pants take things to the next level. The pair weighs just six ounces and has spandex for that signature stretch but also an antibacterial treatment to combat stink and breathable CoolMax fibers that wick moisture. Chances are these…
Vuori takes the casual sweatpant aesthetic (complete with a drawstring waistband) but blends the cotton with spandex for a comfortable four-way stretch. A gusseted crotch adds even more mobility. The Ripstop Climbing is tough but light enough to wear through summer. Back- and side-zippered pockets keep valuables secure, even when…
