Mother Nature sure is a joy, isn’t she? Gorgeous views and vistas, tied into sprawling landscapes and towering mountainsides, all accessible to you, the adventurer. And then there’s that bummer thing about that whole Mother Nature business: As giving as she is in spreading some beauty and joy around, there’s also that tricky business of throwing around some not-so-kind weather. Ideally, your hiking and climbing expeditions would always be in the midst of clear conditions, but seeing as how that totally won’t be the case, we’ve gathered up some of the best men’s hiking and climbing clothing available to ensure you’re never caught out there underdressed and underperforming.
Keeping warm out there is one thing; ensuring your agility is never compromised is just as important, and luckily, we’ve thought of that. Well, these brands have thought of that, but we brought them to your attention, so isn’t that worth something? Anyway, freedom of movement should be the forefront of importance, and the selections above have got it covered. Bask in the glow presented by a top-notch pair of softshell pants, giving you some fantastic stretch capabilities while being sure to include a wealth of other features. Breathable fabrics, high-octane moisture wicking and, what the heck, how about some wind-resistance, too. And that’s just for starters – that top half of yours needs some coverin’ too, and your options are as bountiful as they are impressive. With more ½ and ¼ zips than you can shake a stick at (who shakes sticks at clothing, honestly?), these lightweight pullovers and jackets are chock full of versatility, enabling you to use them as layers or a trusty outer shell in mild weather.
Whether you’re getting lost for days on that demanding-but-fun-but-really-kinda-scary trail, or pushing yourself to ascent that rock side that seemingly shoots up forever, you’re going to need some apparel that’ll be up for the challenge. Luckily for you, that very attire is on display up above. Get to grabbing your new favorite men’s hiking and climbing clothing and then get back out there. Mother Nature is waiting for you, after all.
