posted by gumptiongear October 9, 2017 0 comments

With the chill of autumn in the air, it’s the perfect time to introduce some of our fall favorites for the outdoor guy. Featuring fashionable, versatile and durable products that easily transition from one season to the next, these items will become your cool weather staples for years to come.

LL Bean North Ridge Fleece

Fall is fleece season. When it comes to warmth, breathability, layering and ease of movement you’ll be hard pressed to find a better option than the North Ridge Fleece. A staple in the L.L. Bean line for years, the North Ridge Fleece sets the standard for big comfort and multi-functional use. Relaxed through the chest and sleeve, with a slightly slimmer waist LL Bean ensured this fleece has all of the performance features you need whether it’s a night at the tavern or a day on the trail. 

Mountain Khakis Commuter Pant

Consider this a farewell to your love affair with denim. Equal parts technical style and savvy design, the MK Commuter Pants can hang with you wherever you happen to be: riding your bike on your morning commute, at a working lunch with colleagues, or headed out for weekend mountain getaways. The secret sauce comes from an articulated design and gusseted detailing paired with performance stretch twill and a slimmer tapered leg. In other words, the Cummuter is an all-day pant that offers a unique combination of performance and style. And because it’s from Mountain Khakis, you know these pants are built to last for many autumns yet to come.

KEEN Footwear

This fall, up your boot game with premium leather lace-ups from KEEN. Blending vintage motorcycle styling with modern fit and performance, ‘The Rocker’ Boot pays homage to the steadfast style of Americana. Crafted with a premium, full-grain leather upper, The Rocker offers defense against rough city sidewalks and can hang tough on your ramble to the family cabin. Seam-sealed waterproof protection protects you not only from pumpkin spice latte overflows, but autumn’s unpredictable weather patterns.

Boots aren’t your style? Lace up in the low-top Glenhaven Explorers. With design and comfort features borrowed from outdoor performance shoes, these leather kicks properly equip you for any autumn urban adventure.

Stio Eddy Shirt

If you’ve been dauntlessly searching for the perfect blend of timeless style and premium performance – consider your quest at a successful end. The Eddy Shirt from Stio was designed to answer the call of unpredictable year-round weather while keeping your style game on point. It has a soft cotton feel, but sneaks in a nylon/poly blend to wick away moisture when you’re out getting your hustle on. Subtle style points come en masse courtesy of the elbow patches and label details.

Anson Belt Nylon Straps & Buckles

It’s not magic, but the way Anson Belt pulls your wardrobe (and life) together will leave you wondering if there’s some mystic powers involved. But in reality, the mysticism is nothing more than a micro-adjustable belt that offers a perfect and secure fit with no pulling, stretching or tearing. The new nylon straps feature tactical grade nylon that is rugged enough to tackle your creek crossings and mountain-mastering mischief. Yet it still offers an understated style that works just as well at the golf course or local watering hole. And because it’s an Anson Belt, you can mix and match your preferred straps and buckles, and walk through life in confidence knowing you get one belt that fits like a glove every time.

Darn Tough Fields Crew Light Socks

Word to the wise: If you’re walking into autumn without merino wool, you’re doing it all wrong. Equal parts Merino Wool and Awesomeness, the everyday Fields Crew Light Socks give your outfit a little extra flavor. These casual socks employ merino wool to keep your feet comfortable and dry all day long, and merino’s natural antimicrobial properties ensure crowd-friendly feet at this evening’s sushi dinner. Made in Vermont these stylish socks also offer legendary toughness coupled with unparalleled comfort and fit.

Howler Logo Shirts

Whether you’re peeping leaves in the park or bagging peaks in the backcountry, you’ll enjoy it all the more with The Howler Brothers Men’s El Mono T-Shirt on your back. That’s because it’s buttery soft cotton-poly blend fabric offers plush, lightweight comfort that most other tees can’t touch, and its stylish look impresses from town to tavern to trail and back again.

Headsweats Performance Trucker

The subaru is packed, your favorite playlist is ready to rock, and you’ve got 236 miles of the San Juan Skyway ahead. The only thing missing is your trusty Headsweats Performance Trucker hat. Having a hat that looks good on the open road is always a bonus – but when you break out of the car to explore on foot, that’s when you’ll truly appreciate these caps. The lightweight fabric promotes on-the-go breathability, while the Eventure terry sweatband captures perspiration and wicks it away from the scalp keeping your face clear of distracting sweat drops.
