The winter to spring shift is a time for rebirth, especially this year. When it comes to the wardrobe, it’s all about having the right tools in place to adapt to changing weather and conditions. Our Spring Style Toolkit is here to help.

The meeting of the Gorpcore explosion and continued lockdowns has whipped up a demand storm for hiking. Our desire to explore past the four walls of our own homes and reconnect with nature has never been stronger and with spring incoming, the possibility of getting out for a day in the wild is looking even more enticing.

Labels like Nike ACG, Arc’teryx, Snow Peak, and more, have brought new life to what was a once-stagnated world. Form has met function to make some of the most satisfying pieces on the market, from lightweight jackets to hiking sneaker-boot hybrids, and flasks that are actually cool.

To prepare for the onslaught of hike invites that you’re set to receive over the coming months, and to celebrate one of the burgeoning aspects of contemporary style, we rounded up some of the best hiking gear on the net right now.

Step up your hiking outfits with our gear advice below.
