Looking for boots that offer support and traction in wet conditions? The Ultra 3 Mid GTX Hiking Shoes took the top spot in our best hiking boots testing. Testers praise out-of-the-box comfort and versatility on long and short hikes. For more details, read our full review.
Two design elements that deserve attention are the Contagrip sole for traction in muddy or slippery conditions and a GORE-TEX lining for keeping feet dry. And each boot weighs less than a pound.
Hydro Flask Wide-Mouth Vacuum 24oz. Water Bottle — Flex Cap Lid & Flex Straw Lid: From $28 (Up to 25% Off)
Choose a standard-mouth 24-ounce bottle with a leakproof lid or a wide-mouth bottle with a Flex Straw. Hydro Flask says its double-wall insulation can keep water and other beverages cold for 24 hours so you stay hydrated at the swimming hole or on a favorite hike. The paint job is powder-coated for lasting color and a more textured grip.
Darn Tough redesigned its Light Hiker socks intent on making them more breathable, added cushioning over the Achilles tendon, and gave them a ribbing in the upper to help them stay put.
These are made from merino wool, which naturally fights odor and wicks moisture. What’s more, Darn Tough offers a lifetime warranty on all its socks.
The Micro Crew’s height should sit just above the top of standard hiking boots.
Smartwool tweaked the design of these perennial bestsellers with the goal of creating a more reliable fit. As always, the layer uses interlock-knit merino wool and flatlock seam construction to reduce wear and chafing. The elasticized waistband is covered with wool, and the men’s version comes with a traditional fly.
Smooth on the outside and gridded on the inside, Patagonia’s Capilene material has established a good reputation in the outdoors.
One of our editors wore a slightly different (and much older) version for decades. This piece aims for a mix of middleweight warmth while still breathing and wicking sweat. Thus, fans will wear it on its own or as a core layer.
Fit features include raglan shoulder seams, offset side seams, elastic thumbholes, and a droptail hem.
Leatherman Skeletool CX Multitool: $72 (20% Off)
Leatherman returns to the basics with this multitool. It houses a blade, pliers, wirecutters, four bits, and a bottle opener. Additionally, the screwdrivers include Phillips #1 and #2 bits and three-sixteenths-inch and one-quarter-inch flathead bits.
When deployed, the knife blade locks into place. The Skeletool gets its name from the steel frame’s multiple cutouts.
The fourth iteration of HOKA’s max-cushion trail shoes maintains an off-road build with a 4mm drop, 3D-printed overlays in the midfoot, and 5mm lugs in a Vibram Megagrip sole for traction on wet and dry surfaces.
The brand updated these shoes from previous models by dropping weight in the foam and putting cutouts in the gusseted tongue for greater airflow. You can find more details in our overview.
These joggers are made from stretch-knit jersey fabric with cuffed leg openings, an elastic waistband, and are treated to fight the growth of odor-causing bacteria that can thrive in workout attire.
They come with front pockets, zippered back pockets, and a front leg zip pocket that can secure a phone, keys, or credit cards.
Kahtoola EXOspikes Traction System: $50 (20% Off)
The EXOspikes sit in the middle of the Kahtoola’s winter traction lineup, aimed at hikers and runners. These provide similar traction as the MICROspikes while being 40% lighter, according to the brand. They also use the strap material of the NANOspikes to withstand use on roads and icy terrain.
These provide 12 spikes under each foot, with aluminum steps for grip on uneven surfaces and TPU lugs for looser terrain. Kahtoola says the harness materials should stay pliable down to -22 degrees F.
Goal Zero Yeti 150 Portable Power Generator: $160 (20% Off)
Power up your campsite or your tailgate to keep your outdoor lights and phone charged in remote spots. Charging the generator from a wall socket takes roughly 6 hours, and it takes about 8 hours from a car’s 12V port.
Better yet, leave it in the sun for a couple of days to fully charge it by way of the brand’s Nomad solar panels, also on sale with coupon code MEMBER20.
Goal Zero reports the Yeti 150 solar-powered generator can provide the following output: 50 hours of 12V light, 15 smartphone recharges, six tablet recharges, or two laptop recharges.
