Get the Rugged Outdoorsman Look with this Fall-Friendly Gear

Rugged Outdoorsman Look
With fall fast approaching, it’s time to start assembling your cool-weather wardrobe. While there’s no wrong way to do autumn, today we’re taking a look at the gear you’ll need to pull off one of our favorite looks: the rugged outdoorsman. 

The key here is to pull together items that are both stylish and practical — as natural for the city as they would be for a campsite or a long hike in the woods. These essentials will keep you warm, protect your skin, and have you looking great all season long.

Woolrich Men’s Alaskan Washable Wool Shirt, $119

Woolrich Men's Alaskan Washable Wool Shirt outdoorsman

To get you started, snag the Alaskan Washable Wool Shirt from Woolrich. This durable top was first created for gold prospectors more than 100 years ago and is guaranteed to last through any number of rough weather conditions. The wool is soft to the touch, totally machine-washable, and makes for a great layering piece when the temperature dips close to freezing.

Lems Shoes Leather Boulder Boot, $140

Lems Shoes LEATHER BOULDER BOOT in Russet

Next, check out the flexible, packable, and hard-wearing Leather Boulder Boots from Lems. These shoes are built to mold to the shape of your foot and are constructed with a light, pliable outer sole. While the strong toe and sturdy leather make these boots perfect for rugged hikes on the trail, they’re also great for casual romps around the city.

Duluth Trading Co. Fire Hose Limber Jac, $69.50

Men's Fire Hose Flannel-Lined Limber Jac

If your outdoor adventures take you far north, make sure to pack a tough coat like the Fire Hose Flannel-Lined Limber Jac from Duluth Trading Company. Made of 100-percent cotton canvas, this lightweight jacket is great for when you’re on the move, chopping firewood, or searching for the perfect campsite. Plus, the flannel interior is guaranteed to keep you toasty.

Bulletprufe Olive Green Kush Denim, $98

Bulletprufe Olive Green Kush Denim

To round out your rugged look, go for high-performance denim. This slim-fit pair of Olive Green Kush Denim from Bulletprufe is extremely comfortable and outfitted with industrial strength durability, which means it will be able to handle whatever obstacles you might encounter. They’re ultra soft, abrasion resistant, and built with diagonal stretch panels for extra mobility.

Karesuando Stoerre Una Hunting Axe, $175

Karesuando Stoerre Una Hunting Axe

No post on outdoor gear would be complete without a rough-and-tumble axe — seriously. If you need to get out there and gather firewood or blaze a new path, you need an investment-worthy chopper not unlike the Stoerre Unna Hunting Axe from Karesuando. It’s lightweight, easy to use, and perfect for novices and experts alike.

Barebones Forest Lantern, $40

Barebones Forest Lantern

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. After all, it’s the little things that count when exploring the outdoors.
