It’s the fall season—nights are cooler, foliage is brighter and new opportunities for adventure await.
From travel gear, to camping kits, to survival equipment—these six items turned heads at the explore office this season.
Burton Hearth Fleece Anorak (Men’s)
We love the way this fleece combines throwback style with modern fabrics. It’s both street-stylish and campsite-cozy—the latter thanks to the textured Polartec fleece construction. It also boasts plenty of technical features—such as hand-warmer pockets and Lycra cuffs, hem and collar to keep cool autumn drafts at bay. Four unique colourways are offered. (Women—look to the Anouk Fleece Anorak for similar style and function.)
High Sierra Snow Sports Canada Athlete Duffle
This is our new favourite luggage. Ideal for week-plus trips, it’s 76 centimetres long and features separate compartments at each end and one exterior pocket to complement the cavernous main hold. When wandering the airport, we extend the grab handle and leisurely pull the bag atop its skate-style wheels. For mad dashes across a city street, we break out the hidden backpack straps and hump this 3.26-kilogram unit on our back. Protective bumpers, grab-straps and Snow Sports Canada logos round-out one seriously durable dufflebag.
