As the temperature starts to drop and the leaves start to fall, it’s time to prepare yourself for shorter days and warmer nights by the fireplace. To get you prepared for the change of season, we have compiled a list of essentials that you need this Fall.
Mountain Hard Wear Polartec® Power Grid™ Full Zip Hoody
What can best be described as the Swiss Army Knife of base layers, the Power Grid Hoody has quickly become one of our wardrobe staples when it comes to adventuring outside in cooler temperatures.
This very comfortable mid-layer fleece is made from 60% recycled Polyester and features the company’s Polartec © grid-backer construction that flawlessly traps heat and manages moisture when you need it the most.
We love the attention to detail on this one such as the stretch knit fabric panels, thumbhole cuffs, elastic banded hem, and a brilliant three-piece scuba hood that will stay on your head even in the toughest of outdoor conditions.
Available in three different colors for men and women (we highly recommend the state orange colorway) this hoody should be your first layer in combating the seasonal temperatures.
Since 2018, COROS has been creating affordable GPS fitness watches that bring the best features in a premium build at an affordable price. Their Apex Pro, in our books, strikes the perfect balance between features and price.
COROS is a performance sports technology company that helps athletes train to be their best. With a focus on those that are passionate about the outdoors, mountains, and living an active lifestyle, they seemingly work to combine high-grade hardware with innovative technology to provide endurance athletes with the gear they can rely on in the world’s most extreme environments.
The Apex Pro is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream with its 1.2-inch Sapphire coated watch face paired with a Titanium alloy bezel and lightweight Aluminium construction. It features up to 100m of water resistance and offers 30-day battery life on a single charge!
It also works incredibly well to track blood oxygen levels, heart rate has incredibly accurate GPS tracking, and even supports offline mapping directly on the watch. Paired with the quietly brilliant COROS app and the fact that it is also ANT+/Bluetooth compatible, there is no other watch we would wear on our wrist today.
When you need to hoof it, comfort is the name of the game and the Sterling Oxford sneaker from Lugz is the perfect low-profile moc-toe canvas sneaker for your feet.
The canvas outer is not only very durable but also super breathable and comfortable to wear. The shoes pair well with everything from hiking pants to jeans and seem to have the perfect amount of cushioning for long days on your feet.
The biggest selling point for us was just how comfortable these were right out of the box, with no break in time required like other similarly made shoes. The vulcanized rubber outsole also looks like it will have some longevity which we appreciate in a shoe.
Best of all, these can be purchased for under $65 at the time of writing this.
Lastly, when it is time to cozy up by the fireplace, a good cup of coffee is a must, and this Fall it must be from the Grand Marceline Cocoa and Coffee Company.
Inspired by the magic of Walt Disney’s hometown, the folks behind Grand Marceline set out to create handmade cocoa and coffee that speaks to the masses, it had to be so incredible you can’t describe it with words, and they have done it!
Available in both medium, dark roast, or flavored alternatives, their secret blend of coffee is roasted in Victorian Era Fire Roasters, creating a truly magical experience.
Crafted from high-quality Arabica beans, the smooth bold taste comes from this unique roasting process that caramelizes the sugars, revealing fruity, earthy, chocolaty undertones, creating something truly ineffable.
If you are in the mood for a little extra something with your coffee, be sure to check out their range of flavored coffees too, including birthday cake, banana nut bread, and even fresh blueberry pie, your tastebuds can thank us later!
