    1. A pair of loose-fitting pants perfect for rock climbing at the gym or outdoors. Maybe the only thing standing between you and sending that 5.11a route is the right pair of pants...

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

    3. A tank top with a mesh V-back so your back can finally get a little breeze and stay nice and dry (instead of being covered in a waterfall of sweat 😓 ).

    4. Some trail-ready shorts, because having a go-to pair of lightweight, stretchy shorts for all of your summer journeys is essential.

    5. Mountain Hardware Dynama/2 hiking pants, which have become my go-to fit for day hikes, backpacking trips, and days at the rock climbing gym. Lightweight, quick-drying, comfy, and equipped with just the right amount of pockets, they're my perfect outdoor pant.

    6. 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.

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

    8. An REI Co-op Flash insulated jacket, because even on the hottest day in the mountains, it can still get mighty chilly at night. This is stuffed with a down alternative fill for anyone who wants a high-quality insulated zip-up but would prefer not to have the traditional quilting of a puffer.

    9. A pair of maternity running shorts, because a lil' nature walk could be just what you and your gestating kiddo need.

    10. A bike unitard that's just really cool, if I do say so myself. It's super stretchy, easy to get into, and is shockingly supportive — so much more than I expected from a relatively niche piece of clothing! Yoga, jogging, and lil' picnics await you and this one-piece.

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

    12. An Outdoor Voices exercise dress with built-in shorts that let you move freely and stay covered while running, dancing, hiking or embarking on any other adventures.

    13. 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.

    14. A solid tank with a twisted, draped back available in a ton of fun colors — perfect for anyone who's noticed they've accidentally only ever bought outdoor clothes in black or grey.

    15. A pair of outdoor shorts with eight pockets (!!!!) for grand adventures the likes of which have never been seen...or for walking around your neighborhood in sweat-wicking comfort. Either way!

    16. 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, it's a great investment!

    17. 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.

    18. A sports bra with a strappy back if more traditional styles are just wayyyy too boring for you. Expressing your sense of style doesn't stop being important *just* because you're outdoors.

    19. A pair of Aerie cross-front bike shorts for staying comfortable and looking effortlessly cool wether you're enjoying the great outdoors or having a chill day snuggled up inside.

    20. A pair of classic running shorts with built-in underwear and a handy front pocket to hold your phone. You'll be hands-free for most of your trip, but when you get to the perfect selfie spot, your phone will be at the ready.

    21. A long-sleeve Patagonia shirt that has been a lifesaver for me when I'm on backpacking trips and trying to avoid sunburn and bug bites. It's been lightweight enough to wear in Appalachia in the summer, and I never hit the trail without it.

    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. A Beyond Yoga space-dye racerback tank with a buttery-smooth texture and just enough support.

    24. Versatile capri pants with an adjustable waistband and leg holes, as well as tons of zippered and nonzippered pockets to keep all of your items nice and secure.

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

    26. Some light-as-air ExOfficio underwear, because it's the best in the biz at wicking moisture and staying fresh during long treks.

    27. And finally, a pair of Injinji sock liners that may look silly at first but will truly help keep your feet *so* much more comfortable while on-trail. They prevent blisters, wick moisture, and will give toes their full range of motion so you can rock scramble with the best of 'em.
