White Sierra fall travel clothing

By Amy | August 25, 2015

It can be hard to find travel clothing that transitions well from summer to fall, and who wants to buy a new wardrobe for every season? White Sierra, a brand I’ve always appreciated for their affordability, has done a good job with their skirts and pants this year, with two offerings in particular that I’ve…

ExOfficio Kukura Skort

By Jill | July 31, 2015

Here’s the thing about skorts: They’re the perfect blend of skirt and short that allow you to go about your big, crazy adventures. Skirts may be good for some things, but unless you’re into exhibitionism, they’re not optimal gear for many sports. So, add shorts, and you’re good. And over the years, the construction of…

Craghoppers NosiLife Tafari Jersey Skirt

By Jill | June 12, 2015

Travel skirts have come a long way. They used to be either short and skin-tight or long and granny style, and while either can work fine (depending on where you are)—they are sometimes limiting. Now, we can choose between a variety of travel skirts, some of which are even great for outdoor adventures. The Craghoppers…

Exclusive Yet Economical: Arc’teryx Zeta AR Jacket and Pant

By Amy | April 9, 2015

Given the cost of high-quality outdoor apparel, I need my preferred wear to be three-season-friendly, versatile, and durable. I was immediately drawn to the Arc’teryx Zeta AR Jacket and pant, both due to Arc’teryx’s high standards and the many uses of the Zeta line. And don’t worry guys…these exact items come in a men’s version. See it…

Cozy but Tough: Flannel-lined Pants from Mountain Khakis | Practical Travel Gear 2

Mountain Khakis Granite Creek Pant for men and women

By Amy | October 15, 2013

Mountain Khakis calls their lightweight, packable adventure pant the Granite Creek Pant. I call it the Do All, Go Everywhere, and Look Great Doing It Pant. (Wordy, but accurate. I’m sure Mountain Khakis will be calling me shortly to rename all their other pants, too.) The Granite Creek pant comes in men’s and women’s styles,…

Athleta Whatever Skort

By Jill | December 30, 2011

I ducked into an Athleta store this summer with a girlfriend who, like me, travels a lot and likes to have versatile clothing for outdoor adventures at home and abroad. She walked straight to a rack against the wall, pulled out a skirt, and proclaimed: “I love this! I even got one for my sister.”…

ExOfficio Women’s Vent’r Pants

By Kara | September 14, 2010

I wore the ExOfficio Women’s Vent’r Pants during my shore excursions on an Alaska cruise last month, and I couldn’t have been more pleased with the performance. Granted, I had a pair of leggings on under the pants in both instances — ziplining through the Alaska rainforest and trekking on a glacier — so I…

Don't Call Them Flip-Flops: Spenco Total Support Sandals | Practical Travel Gear 1

Don’t Call Them Flip-Flops: Spenco Total Support Sandals

By Tim Leffel | June 9, 2010

What would a company known for orthotic insoles do with a pair of flip-flops? Spenco took a shot at it and completely redesigned the experience. You won’t confuse these with beach flip-flops from Wal-mart, so Spenco won’t even use that term. These are “Polysorb Total Support Sandals.” It’s not just semantics though. Your feet will…
