    Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women's.

    1. A crisscross back sports bra that's comfortable enough to relax in at camp but supportive enough to get you through long day hikes — not to mention it looks darn cute doing both.

    2. A pair of trail-ready shorts, because everyone needs go-to pair of lightweight, stretchy shorts for all of their summer journeys.

    3. Lightweight, water-resistant pants or capris that are equally suited for staying comfy on the ride to your adventure, hiking, and hitting the water to go kayaking.

    4. A Patagonia jumpsuit made entirely out of running shorts material so you can have that cool, breezy feel all over. Functional *and* adorable.

    5. Bold, bright leggings so you'll never be out of sight from the pals you're hiking with — they'll just see a lovely pink glow from afar and be like oop, there's our friend!

    6. Waterproof shorts to seamlessly transition from hiking to swimming — trip to the top of a waterfall, anyone?

    7. A tank top with a mesh V-back so your back can finally get a little breeze and stay nice and dry.

    8. Patagonia Happy Hike pants whose versatility and little details make them perfect for their job. They feature adjustable elastic waistband, elastic cuffs, hand warmer pockets, and a water-repellent finish — basically everything you could ever dream.

    9. A zip-up rain jacket to bring along just in case you face some inclement weather. You know what they say — when it rains it pours!

    10. An Under Armour T-shirt that wicks and dries sweat mega-fast so you can stop getting annoyed by your wet shirt and focus on the beauty of nature.

    11. An active bralette with a thick bottom band, moisture-wicking material, and an antimicrobial treatment that'll work together to keep you secure and fresh while you set up your campsite.

    12. A Columbia fleece jacket, because it may be summer, but if you're hiking or camping in the mountains, boy oh boy can it get chilly in the mornings and evenings.

    13. A breathable thong made of a breathable mesh to keep your nether regions nice and sweat-free as you climb every mountain in sight.

    14. Convertible pants that will zip down to shorts whenever your calves just gotta get some air. These year-round pants also have tons of pockets so you can have snacks and tools always at the ready.

    15. An anti-microbial tee so you can wear the same outfit for days without getting too serious a case of The Funk. Maybe not necessary for day hikes, but for backpackers and multi-day trippers, a great investment.

    16. A Patagonia quarter-zip fleece — a classic, comfortable garment that'll keep you warm without being too bulky.

    17. A pair of active undies with moisture-wicking and antimicrobial properties that will ensure you can stay comfortable and fresh, even on your longest, sweatiest trips.

    18. A sun protection shirt that's super lightweight, moisture-wicking, and has a UPF 50+ rating, meaning the fabric blocks the sun's harmful UV rays.

    19. Smartwool Merino 250 base layer bottoms whose titular smart wool will help to regulate your body temperature simultaneously keeping you warm and letting your skin breathe. I have these and love them!

    20. And a Smartwool Merino 250 base layer top to match! Wouldn't want your torso to get jealous of all that warmth your bottom half is treated to.

    21. An Outdoor Voices exercise dress with built-in shorts that let you move freely and stay covered while running, hiking or — if you're me — fake mooning your friends on the trail.

    22. High-waisted yoga pants with deep side pockets so you have both maximum flexibility *and* maximum cargo load. What if you need to climb up a big ol' rock with everything you own?!

    23. Columbia active pants for anyone who wants the trail to be a little more business casual. These may look like ordinary pants, but they're lightweight, stretchy, and great for outdoor activity.

    Have fun enjoying the great outdoors, everyone!
