Hiking and climbing are the new yoga and spinning. In addition to activating muscles we may have never felt before, the two modalities challenge us to confront our fears on both literal and psychological levels. Socially, they immediately provide access to a community. Not to mention bringing us closer to Mother Earth.
We can't imagine a better brand than Patagonia for outdoor practice and for all levels. From their commitment to sustainability, refugee protection and environmental preservation while simultaneously hitting the mark on style, Patagonia's values and engagement are something we hope to see more of across the industry going forward.
Here are our top hiking essentials from the brand's SS18 Women's collection.
