Picking the travel apparel can be tough. Let’s face it, you don’t want to haul a ton of crap with you, even if you are in a car. How often am I working out, what is the weather forecast, where are we eating, and most importantly how often will I need to iron?
Aventura Kineta Skort and Dharma Tank
You can’t go wrong with a little skirt and a cute simple tank. The Kineta Skort and Dharma Tank from Aventura provides this. The Kineta Skort brings a sporty style that is perfect for easy runs, hikes and other adventures. Hoping on a bike, don’t worry, the Kineta Skort is constructed with a built-in shorts liner, no pad though. The zippered pocket at the back is perfect for keys, credit card or directions to the next destination. When the skirt makes such a bold statement, the shirt can be simple. This relaxed fit, crew neck tank features an adorable back cut-out, perfect for showing off fun strappy sports bras. The soft heathered fabric blend combines breathability and comfort without the tech fabric look.
Eddie Bauer Contour Polo and Mr. Guide Pro Shorts
From alpine scrambling to multi-day trips into remote backcountry locations, our two-way stretch, water-repellent nylon/spandex shorts are guide-tested and can take anything you dish out. Lightweight and packable, they have two low-profile, secure zip cargo pockets as well as front and back pockets for essentials.
Easy-packing for active travel, this polo shirt is made of a Tencel® lyocell/polyester blend. Known for its strength, ultrasoft texture, breathability, and natural wrinkle resistance, Tencel lyocell is actually a forest product, derived from the natural cellulose in wood pulp. Shoulder seams are placed forward to prevent chafing.
Eddie Bauer Resolution Tee and Movement Blocked Carpri
It packs down small, is available in a ton of colors and the price is right. With built-in moisture wicking and sun protection, this lightweight polyester T-shirt delivers high-performance comfort for training and all types of activities, indoors and out. The simple colors can pair with almost anything. The heathered pattern adds a bit of interest, without going overboard.
Compression spandex with FreeDry moisture wicking makes this capris ideal for all things active. The simple back design can go with anything.

The Movement Block Capri also features a wide contoured waistband to prevent chaffing and is lined with dense mesh to flatten the stomach, and a mesh blocking at the back of knees for breathability.
Barbour City Neuston Short and Space Dye Crew
The Barbour Neuston Twill Shorts are an essential item for any gentleman; perfect for those warmer days spent outdoors or jetting off to a crazy new destination. Classically simple in their design, they boast a minimalist but stylish design constructed from twill cotton for a super soft to the touch feel, but highly durable. The regular fit is timeless to most and features multiple pockets for carrying small items. Team with your favorite printed t-shirt for a casual look, or pair with a button down or sweater to class it up a bit.
The Space Dye Crew is a wardrobe essential, crafted in pure cotton with a distinctive, multi-tonal effect. Styled with a modern slim fit, long sleeves and a crew neckline, this versatile men’s top is dressy enough to wear to a nice dinner, but warm enough to hang out on the beach at night with a glass of a wine. The slim cut is ideal for those wanting a snugger fitting top.
Barbour Dive Dress and Dalmore Dress
Similar designs, but for different occasions. The Barbour Dive dress (pictured on the left) is perfect for strolling around a resort, grabbing lunch or hitting a farmer’s market in the morning. This casual piece looks good and doesn’t scream “I just came from yoga”. Although it may be casual, you could still pull it off in a lot of restaurants come dinner time. Cooler or rainy day on vacation? Pair it with a pair of tights and rain boots for all-day comfort.
Headed out for the night? Check out the Dalmore Dress, same nautical inspired theme, but dressed up. Rock it with a pair of wedges or even a pair of Birkenstocks. Either way, you’ll be comfortable and stylish.
Mountain Hardware Quasar Lite Jacket and Synergist Tight
The Quasar jacket is a serious piece for serious travel. It also packs a serious price tag, but if you are out in the snow, sleet or freezing rain all day, this is the time you don’t wanna skimp. This versatile lightweight jacket is the one to have in your bag or on your body at all times. Waterproof air-permeable proprietary Mountain Hardware fabric, durable and stretchable, with a helmet-compatible hood.

A mesh side panel helps with ventilation, and adds a touch of flare. Great for hiking, backpacking and even yoga.
Columbia Anytime Casual Shorts & Steele Gaze Tee
Columbia offers such a wide range of apparel, it is hard to just pick one thing. But what we do love is their line of technical casual tops. The Solar Chill Tee (left), add a little bling to the backcountry with this summer-ready shirt. Features UPF 50 sun protection, moisture-wicking fabric, and Omni-Shade™ Sun Deflector— that reflects the sun so you stay cooler and protected from harmful rays, and we just think it looks super cute. Stretch fabric and an active fit make this a comfortable yet tech-packed top for the trail.
The Steel Gaze, (middle) doesn’t force you to sacrifice comfort for style with this versatile, reversible tee built for sunny day adventures.

The cotton-hemp blend Summer Time Hoodie is sure to be your go-to layer all season long. Crafted with 4-way comfort stretch, this hoodie is a versatile wardrobe essential that’ll go with just about every outfit.
Hatley Lucy Dress and Elsie Dress
Chances are when you are traveling you’re going to end up somewhere nice, and there is nothing worse than walking into a nice restaurant and people are dressed to the nines, and you are sporting a dress tank that looks like you should be walking out of yoga class than it does sipping a glass of your favorite Napa Cab. We ran across Hatley at a resort store and it was perfect, pair it with sandals for lunch or a cute pair of wedges for dinner! Both dresses also work well paired with a little wink of the eye to get anything you want.
Mountain Hardware Fleece and XYZ shirt
If you’ve never owned a Mountain Hardware fleece, you are missing out. Like a good Napa Cab, you don’t know how good it is until you try it. The fleece will last a little longer though. Shown above is their Microchill 2.0 Lite fleece (although MH calls it a Tee). Uber lightweight, yet warm and great for layering. With its soft hand feel and this half zip, this fleece is perfect as a base layer, wearing as a light stand-alone pullover or for added warmth under a shell. Its weight and versatility make it perfect for packing in.
All work and no play can make a man grumpy, so pull out the men’s Outpost long sleeve from Mountain Hardware. A go-to shirt that handles any adventure in comfort and style. Digging around in the car late at night, you’ll love the first-of-its-kind chest pocket that lets your phone light shine hands-free. When you get back from your trip, wash it up and wear it to the office. Rugged enough for a days adventure, nice enough to wine and dine. Feels soft, performs tough, and looks classic.
OluKai Nohea Moku (noh-heh-ah moh-koo)
Wear them around town, to the beach or out to dinner. This shoe is travel worthy and comfortable. It even is capable of handling light hikes. Get it wet at the beach or playing in a stream. Slip out the insoles and you’ll soon discover that the shoe is rather fast drying. Slipping on your shoes to run down to the hotel lobby and grab a drink? No problem with Olukai’s patented drop-in heel design, this handy little feature allows you to wear the Nohea as a slide on or as a shoe. It takes about 3 seconds to fold down and can be done with a flick of a toe. Even when slipping them on and off as a shoe, the elastic lacing system makes it a breeze.
