Planning an outdoor adventure this fall? From the best hiking backpack to the sturdiest boots, these products will cover you every step of the way.

The North Face Havoc 1/4 Zip

Whether worn solo or under a shell, this pullover fleece provides ventilated warmth with a geometric design similar to that used in expedition tents. Its jacquard pattern features tiny vents that promote breathability and its quick-try technology zaps sweat away from your skin—both crucial features for regulating body temperature through changing altitudes on longer hikes.
