For truly bold outdoorsmen, the end of shorts season isn’t a good enough reason to pack it in. The mighty outdoor apparel gods wrought outdoor pants so diehard nature lovers could comfortably enjoy the wilderness during the cold-but-beautiful fall and winter seasons.

Jeans, while stylish and versatile under most circumstances, don’t quite cut it when you’re on the trail — they’re heavy, bulky, and easily saturated. A good pair of outdoor pants should be lightweight, warm, and impervious to the elements. In honor of the early days of fall, we thought we’d showcase Fjällräven’s outstanding outdoor pants.

No, Fjällräven is not a Swedish heavy metal band — rather, it’s one of our favorite outdoor brands, and they’ve recently launched a new ad campaign to get the word out about their line of outdoor pants in time for the cold season.

Fjällräven’s Vidda Pro trousers, for example, are made with water-resistant G-1000 and boast reinforced rear and knees. They also come with no fewer than seven pockets, including a map pocket, an axe pocket, and an inner safety pocket. In other words, these pants are legit.BURKARD2

You might also consider the Keb Eco-Shell trousers, which have three layers of wind and waterproof material; or the Abisko trousers, which boast excellent mobility and comfort. Each pant comes in a range of colors, allowing you to maintain your personal style on the trail.

Whether you’re a hiker, a backpacker, a mountain climber, a fisherman, or a city slicker posing as an outdoorsman, you’ll find these hardy outdoor pants from Fjällräven to be the ideal adventure companions.

Like a ripe Valencia orange, bursting with juice and color and plucked off the tree at the perfect time, orange watches for men will zest up your wristwear game. In a sea of monochrome monotony, where the average watch is usually blue or black with a stainless steel bracelet, orange watches will certainly have you standing out.

Orange is not only a great way to add a pop of color to your wardrobe, but the color has major significance and use. No, we're not talking traffic cones, Halloween pumpkins, and other unsightly things that famously use the color. It's also seen in a Tuscan sunset, used as a way to see better in the depths of the ocean, or sometimes aids as a symbol of an organization or good cause like environmental conservation.

Pelagos FXD Chrono Tudor Pro Cycling Team Edition on wrist

On May 4, the Giro d'Italia kicked off, with cyclists embarking on a challenging (a simple word for the mind-boggling, grueling race) journey that spans 3,400 kilometers across 21 stages. It started in Venaria Reale and will conclude on May 26 in the land of pasta and pizza, Rome. The Giro d'Italia has an incredibly long history dating all the way back to 1909, but this year promises an entirely modern update with the addition of the Tudor Pro Cycling Team. Naturally, the Tudor watches has introduced a new timepiece to commemorate what is their first Grand Tour.

The Pelagos FXD Chrono Tudor Pro Cycling Team Edition, a watch so sturdy it can certainly handle the long name, might look familiar to fans of the brand, as it looks just like the Tudor Pelagos FXD Chronograph Alinghi Red Bull edition from last year. However, as is true of the brand, this Tudor watch embraces some technical specifications that make it perfect for the sport it represents.

Citizen Layers of Time collection

This year marks the 100th anniversary of Citizen watches, and what better way to commemorate the momentous occasion than with a limited edition capsule collection? It's basically the cake and candles of the watch industry. The Japanese brand has unveiled five models that draw inspiration from the rocks and minerals that formed the Earth several million years ago in a geological evolution.
Citizen watches: The Layers of Time collection

Each of the 5 Citizen watches features an Eco-Drive solar mechanism, with transparent dials and a very noticeable special ink developed along with the Fujifilm Corporation that gives them a surprisingly extraterrestrial vibe despite the fact that they represent our own planet. The Layers of Time collection takes inspiration in its design from geological formations and the natural beauty of the Earth's layers, giving rise to the organic patterns and textures you would find in rocks, minerals, and fossils.

The Citizen Attesa Layers of Time Eco-Drive Satellite Wave GPS CC4057-60E features a case and bracelet made from incredibly durable Super Titanium alloy, made even better with a black Duratect finish. It's one of the more beastly watches in the new collection as its case measures 44.6mm in diameter and 15.4mm in thickness, and it's water resistant up to 100 meters. This watch has a bezel adorned with a gradient finish, echoing the colors in the dial, and it's powered by the Caliber F950 Eco-Drive movement, famous for its self-sustaining capabilities in any light.
