Arc’teryx designed this as a lighter, more packable update to the Beta LT hybrid hardshell. It’s made with a GORE C-Knit backer that includes a tougher GORE fabric in the shoulders to protect against wear from backpacks. You’ll be ready for everything the trail throws at you.
These hiking pants have some give in them thanks to stretchy fabric and a gusseted inseam for more mobility. They’ll double as travel and everyday pants too. If you’re scrambling rocks or wary of bike chain grease, there are roll-up snaps to get your cuffs out of the way.
Smartwool recently took a new approach to its base layers and put a knit mesh in parts that needed additional flex and breathability. The fit is closer around the elbows and knees to help the garments stay in place. Sweat-prone spots like the lower back have a more breathable texture. The 250 weight can work as active layers in the fall and base layers come winter.
