There’s an exciting world just outside your door and it’s begging to be explored. Before you embark on your next adventure, make sure you’re properly equipped with the right gear, apparel, tech, and travel accessories. We have you covered with this month’s instalment of Huckberry Finds, which features everything one might need to bring out the explorer inside him. We’re talking compact multi-tools, modern duffel bags, weather-resistant socks, durable watches, and other outdoor essentials. Don’t leave home without them!
Proof 72-Hour Merino No Show Sock
One thing no explorer would argue with? Socks that last 72 hours. Enter these machine-washable crew socks from Proof, which do just that. Thanks to a specially engineered fabric, they enhance the natural properties of merino wool to wick moisture, resist odours, and regulate temperatures. The socks also retain their structure over time and feel quite cosy.
Foehn Brise Short
Built for outdoor adventure, Foehn’s Brise Short raises the bar on technical performance. A lightweight blend of 86% recycled nylon and 14% spandex is coated with a water-repellent finish and thereby able to withstand tears, abrasions, dirt, stains, and moisture alike. Then we have the built-in qualities of four-way stretch, enabling palpable freedom of movement. Throw these babies on and go. Go where? Anywhere.
KUHL Silencr Pant
Don’t be fooled by the handsome veneer, as these performance pants will stay the course through foul weather and a slew of hostile terrains. Constructed from durable REFLEX ripstop fabric with four-way mechanical stretch and a water-repellent finish, they feature no less than seven pockets for your smartphone and EDC.
Patagonia Silent Down Shirt Jacket
Between their high-quality products and ethical mindset, Patagonia is leading the charge toward a sustainable future of outdoor apparel. The Silent Down Shirt Jacket represents yet another triumph for the B Corp certified brand. Soft, comfortable, windproof, and water-resistant, it’s insulated with 700-fill-power 100% recycled down. Bring in some built-in stretch and you’re feeling good on multiple levels, which is what we like to call the Patagonia way.
lululemon At Ease Hoodie
True to form, lululemon’s naturally breathable hoodie will put you at ease, indeed. On the flip side of that coin, it will also inspire all kinds of outdoor activities. Crafted from four-way stretch fabric, it comes equipped with kangaroo-style zippered pockets, an underarm gusset, and back tape that doubles as a locker loop. Expect the kind of quality that only this brand can provide.
Naglev Unico Hiker
Naglev’s Unico Hikers strike the perfect balance between hiking boots and trail runners. One-piece Kevlar uppers and moisture-wicking wool sock liners keep your feet dry from trailhead to summit and back. Rubber compound outsoles deliver optimal traction while soft midsoles and footbeds enable prime comfort and support. Your next outdoor adventure is incomplete without a pair.
Danner JAG – Dry Weather
Retro style meets modern performance on these high-ankle boots from Danner. A 1980s-inspired design gets updated by way of suede leather and 1000 denier nylon textile construction, breathable mesh lining, EVA midsole cushions, and polyurethane OrthoLite footbeds. Equal parts breathable, durable, comfortable, and versatile, this footwear is ready for any adventure you can throw its way.
Leatherman FREE T4 – One-Handed Multitool
All you need is one hand to operate this 100% stainless steel multi-tool, which makes up part of Leatherman’s Free Collection. Its magnetic locking system offers a lifetime of quick access and seamless functionality, putting a host of tools at your immediate disposal. That includes the following: 420HC knife, spring-action scissors, pry tool, package opener, awl, bottle opener, wood/metal file, Phillips screwdriver, medium screwdriver, small screwdriver, extra-small screwdriver, and tweezers.
Tactica M.100 – 17-in-1 Multi-Tool
Tactica’s versatile EDC crams no less than 17 tools into its compact body of 420 hardened stainless steel with composite casing (so that your tech stays scratch-free). Behold its adaptable design, which allows you to swap in the bits you need with ease. Also featured is an integrated hex socket along with built-in storage for two 1/4″ hex drivers.
Patagonia Black Hole Duffel 40L
We don’t know where your next outdoor exploration will take you, but we do know one thing: you’ll need a quality duffel. That brings us to this durable and weather-resistant masterpiece, crafted from 100% recycled fabric. Roomy enough to hold all your gear, but sized to fit in the overhead compartment, it’s an indispensable resource for journeys near and far alike. Features include a padded bottom, lined interior, U-shaped top opening, mesh pocket, zippered side pockets, webbing hand straps, removable backstraps, and more.
Patagonia Stand Up Belt Bag – 3L
On the smaller (but no less exceptional) side of things, Patagonia’s Stand Up Belt Bag is amongst the most durable you can buy. It combines premium organic cotton with polyester canvas and a water-repellent finish to offer the best of multiple worlds, retaining structure as it wards off moisture. Use the main compartment to store all your essentials and the drop-in external pocket for quick-access items.
Filson Dry Backpack
One look at Filson’s roll-top backpack and you already know that it’ll last forever and keep your gear completely dry. More than waterproof, its PU-coated 840-denier nylon exterior is resistant to abrasions, UV light, chemicals, and other external hazards. This bag is so effective that you can fully submerge it in water without compromising the interior contents. It also features high-density EVA foam padding on the back and adjustable shoulder straps, amongst other things. For all the true explorers out there, you’ve just found your backpack.
Seiko Prospex “Arnie” Watch
This ultra-functional timepiece resurrects and reinterprets the iconic 1982 Hybrid Diver’s Watch (once worn by Arnold Schwarzenegger, hence the name). Powered by solar technology, its battery lasts for 6 months when fully charged. At the top of its analog dial is an inset digital display, which can be used to control the alarm and stopwatch or to respectively exhibit battery levels, date, or different time zones. We’re merely skirting the surface of what this adventure-ready wristwear has in store.
