Our Favorite Technical Outerwear To Invest in Right Now
For hiking, outdoor activities and looking your absolute best.
The term “Techwear” has been used a lot throughout the past few years, with brands like Stone Island, CP Company, Arc’Teryx and Acronym dominating the market. The focus on outerwear and technical garments quickly turned into its own subculture, and the trend has enabled collaborations like Gucci x The North Face and Jil Sander x Arc’Teryx. But when it comes to promoting techwear and outdoor gear, products are almost always geared towards a male audience despite hiking, climbing and other outdoor activities being popular across all audiences.
As we’ve navigated the COVID-19 pandemic worldwide, more people have grown an interest in hiking and outdoor activities throughout lockdowns, and it only continues to grow. There’s been an echoing absence of female-focused outerwear, as well as unisex marketing in the outerwear realm, which is why we’re rounding up a handful of technical outdoor pieces and accessories that are available in women’s sizing. Take a look at our picks from labels like Nike ACG, Snow Peak, Columbia and more below.
