What to Pack for Your Next Outdoor Adventure

by  ShermansTravel Editorial Staff | May 9, 2022

When adventure calls, you’ve got to be ready. This go-to packing list has the basics you’d need for excursions as diverse as waterfall hiking in Yosemite, trout fishing in Big Sky Country, or backpacking between Barcelona and Budapest. Even better, this is one-stop shopping. Everything on this list is from our pals at Huckberry. So gear up and get out there.

1. Proof 72-Hour Merino Tee

Campers, backpackers, and multi-day hikers take note: This shirt is made to be worn for 72 hours without showing signs (or scents) of wear. Harnessing the natural properties of merino wool, it’s a moisture-wicking, odor-resisting, temperature-regulating wonder tee. Just think of all the terrain you can cover in three days and all the space you’ll save in your bag. Buy it now.

2. Proof Rover Pant

These all-terrain pants share a name with the ultimate all-terrain vehicle for good reason. They’ll take you on off-roading adventures and make you look good while you do it. Stretch canvas, a gusseted crotch, and dart seams behind the knees make these pants durable and easy to move in. Plus, the eco-friendly pigment dye wears in over time, just like your favorite jeans. Buy it now.

3. Proof Meridian Cargo Jogger

Whether you’re tackling 12-hour flights or 12-mile hikes, a jogger pant is essential for any adventurer. This pair is made from a breathable and durable Primeflex warp knit fabric and has plenty of pockets for easy access to your phone, wallet, and passport. It also has a more tailored look than your run-of-the-mill track pant or sweats, so you’ll feel pulled together should your adventure lead you to a local watering hole. Buy it now.

4. Danner Free Spirit

Tetris, The Goonies, Pink Floyd’s The Wall…all from the '80s, and all with serious staying power. Another item from that fantastic era? Performance boots as everyday fashion. These Danner Free Spirit hikers are an ode to the '80s, with a retro look that’s fitting for the trail or town. But while the style is a throwback, the tech is all modern. The breathable Gore-Tex waterproof liner keeps your feet dry, the triangle lugs offer a reliable grip, and three layers of cushioning deliver optimal support. Buy them now.

5. Proof Lightweight Lightning Jacket

What’s between you and the elements? Oh, just durable polyester with a water-resistant DWR (AKA durable water repellent) coating, sealed seams to protect against leaks, an adjustable bottom hem cord, and adjustable cuffs to seal off all entry points.  Yes, this rain jacket has it all and still packs down small enough to keep in your backpack so that you'll always be prepared for drizzle and all-out downpours alike. Buy it now.

6. Proof Interval Boxer Briefs

Don’t skimp on your skivvies. Gearing up should include wearing base layers that are easy to move in, like these high-performance briefs. With four-way stretch, they’ll move with you in every direction and won’t get baggy no matter how much you wear and wash them. Plus, their anti-microbial finish fights odors and keeps you feeling fresh. Buy them now.

7. Black Diamond Stonehauler

Pack an entire weekend into a single bag. The Stonehauler by Black Diamond, a brand that has been creating innovative climbing, skiing, and mountain gear since 1957, has a roomy 45-liter main compartment. It also has a padded laptop pocket and dedicated internal storage for dirty shoes and clothes. Think of it as your all-in-one mobile office, hamper, and closet. Buy it now.

8. Nocs Waterproof Binoculars

Is there a tool more synonymous with exploration than a pair of binoculars? Get a better view — 8x magnification, to be exact — with Nocs. These fog-proof peepers are equipped with GoodEye™ Glass anti-reflective coated lenses, IPX7 waterproof certification (meaning they can be submerged for up to 30 minutes), and a non-slip rubber grip. They even come complete with a drawstring pouch, neck strap, and lens cleaning cloth. Buy them now

9. Huckberry Weekenders

The great outdoors have claimed a great number of glasses, whether they’re busted or misplaced. Fortunately, these shades won’t break the bank if you need to replace them. That being said, the Huckberry Weekenders deliver a ton of bang for your buck thanks to its durable yet lightweight construction and polarized lenses. They also offer a snug fit to cut down on the chances of them taking a tumble in the first place. Buy them now.

10. Huckberry Waxed Canvas Trucker Hat

Among the legions of legendary hats, truckers just might be up there with fedoras, Panama, boater, and bowler (at least in the eyes of anyone who lived through Y2K). But this waxed cotton canvas cap isn’t just about style. The mesh back gives your noggin ventilation, while the cotton twill sweatband is easy on your skin. Buy it now.
