ndian summers. Morning fog. Freak snowstorms. If anything, fall is utterly unpredictable. And if you're packing for a weekend outside, you need clothes that can handle everything. That means apparel that combines technical, breathable fabrics with good, clean lines versatile enough for walking the trail and hanging at the cabin. To get you prepped, we blended a little SoHo and Santa Monica with a heap of Jackson Hole and North Conway for a closet of options that look hot but won't leave you out in the cold.
Hike in Style Nike's Seamless Strap Half-Zip top ($75; www.nikewomen.com) is made of stretchy, body-hugging nylon, perfect on its own or as a base layer. Westcomb's Synchro pants ($199; www.westcomb.com) are lightweight, trail-ready softshells made with Schoeller's dirt-shedding NanoSphere fabric. Slightly heavier than most softshells, 66º North's Glymur jacket ($290; www.66northus.com) fends off late-day chills. Montrail's Highline trail runners ($95; www.montrail.com) stand up on long backcountry runs. To make sure you hold up as well, the Camelbak Moxie ($70; www.camelbak.com) has a generous 70-ounce bladder to ward off dehydration and a mesh back to keep you cool.
