Get the Gear: the Rugged Outdoorsman
Huckberry’s essentials should line up quite nicely for you if your idea of a perfect day involves getting out from behind your laptop and getting your hands dirty.
Starting with essential, tough and stylish shirting from Taylor Stitch and moving through to your new favorite pair of leather boots, Huckberry’s gear for the outdoorsman is everything you need to add to your wardrobe this month — and a whole lot more.
Taylor Stitch Yosemite Shirt [$125]
Should it come as any surprise that the Yosemite Shirt is the perfect go-anywhere pick for rugged outdoor adventures? With a slim-yet-mobile fit and comfortable Portuguese chamois flannel fabric, it’s the type of camp or work shirt your grandpa might’ve worn — yet you get major modern style points in the process.
LEMS Leather Boulder Boot [$140]
Flexible, packable, and hard-wearing, LEMS makes its Boulder Boots with a keen eye for what outdoor explorers want. We’re talking a fit that molds to the shape of your foot, plus a light, flexible outsole. The moc-toe is exactly the kind of style you want to take off the trail, and they might just be your new favorite pair of winter boots.
If you thought we skimped in the outerwear department, think again. Just the right blend of rugged and downtown cool, the Flint and Tinder Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker –in a slick new coal shade — is the rare jacket that can take a beating and look even better after. The waxed Martexin sailcloth will age wonderfully the more work you do — and the flannel lining ensures you’ll stay warm while doing it.
Karesuando Stoerre Una Hunting Axe [$174.98]
No post on outdoor gear would be complete without a rough-and-tumble axe — seriously. If you need to get out there and chop firewood or blaze a new path, you need an investment-worthy chopper; the fact that you should be wearing all of the above gear while using said tool is just as important.
Barebones Forest Lantern [$38.98]
It’s a simple, underrated, and sometimes-forgotten part of your outdoor everyday carry — a trusty, reliable lantern. Barebones makes some of the best around, and at a great price. The rechargeable battery is crucial and the steel construction means it won’t overheat — it’s the little things that count when exploring the outdoors.
