WALKING GEAR GUIDE
Choosing the right walking clothes and shoes can be a real challenge.
We created this guide to help you find the gear that is most suitable to
your needs. All our walking gear is tested tough so you can safely and
comfortably enjoy the outdoors longer.
JACKETS
The right jacket should be breathable to keep you dry during your hike and windproof to keep you protected from the chill. You may also want to choose one that is waterproof in case of any unexpected change of weather. Our OutDry™ Extreme collection features fully waterproof and breathable jackets to keep you protected even in the toughest conditions.

OUR TIP
Depending on the season, you may simply want to choose a light jacket or shell to keep you protected from the wind and rain without adding extra weight or warmth. Complete your outfit with a baselayer and with a fleece you can easily remove if you feel warm.

BASELAYERS
A baselayer is your foundation for warmth in winter and your wicking layer in summer, and should be worn below the midlayer and outer-layer (jacket). A baselayer can be worn as a standalone during workouts or outdoors spring and autumn activities.

HIKING BOOTS
There are as many different footwear options as there are trails out there. Whilst low-cut walking shoes offer lightness and flexibility on day hikes, mid-cut hiking boots provide the stability and ankle support you need to conquer long trails on challenging terrain with a heavy backpack.

A man and a woman hiking in wet conditions
This award-winning all-season gear incorporates our pinnacle fabrics, features, fit, and technologies for unbeatable quality and comfort. Tested tough in some of the most rigorous circumstances and environments in the world, Titanium is inspired by the words of our chairman Ma Boyle: “It’s perfect. Now make it better.”
LEAVE NO TRACE
Good wilderness etiquette is essential in safeguarding the pristine wild places on our planet, as well as ensuring quality outdoor experiences for generations to come.
Pack it in/pack it out
Be mindful of the environment and of others and take your trash home with you.
Don’t feed wildlife
Feeding wild animals will affect their natural behaviours and teach them to rely on human-provided food.
Keep tunes down
Respect the silence and do not disturb wildlife with unnecessary noise.
 
Campfires
Think twice before lighting up a campfire: they may prohibited and may cause serious damage to the environment.
