Hitting the trail this summer doesn’t necessarily mean you need to be decked out from head to toe in neoprene lined shorts or super lightweight stretch fabric, especially if you’re looking to simplify your hiking essentials. And if there’s one brand that can do just that, it’s Timberland, who just happen to have the goods and can outfit you from head-to-toe as you hit the trail, with everything from waterproof hooded coats and rugged moc-toe boots that can take you out hiking and back in time for a beer by the campfire.
You can’t go wrong with these three must have essentials for the season. The Men’s Solid Slub Jersey Pocket T-Shirt ($28), is the most comfortable baselayer you’ll find, and also looks great worn alone or with cargo shorts or jeans.
Keeping track of time is vital when your out in the wilderness, and the Thorndike Watch ($200), not only handles that but is also incredibly stylish. With a rugged yet modern aesthetic, it features a 48 mm ion-plated stainless steel case, analog/digital display with date and day of the week, backlit display, alarm, is water-resistant to 50 meters/165 ft., and sports a premium leather strap.
Last but not least is a carrier made for the outdoors. The Original 27-Liter Water-Resistant Backpack ($128), is a 27-liter backpack with all the bells and whistles. Built tough, it sports an Outer shell made from 600-denier 100% polyester with a 15000-mm polyurethane water-repellent coating.
