Mountain Hardwear Spring Essentials 2023

Spring has sprung and it is time to hit the trails, clean up the old dusty bicycle and start enjoying mother nature again and the best way to do that is with the right gear. The team at Mountain Hardwear wants to make sure you are fully equipped this season, with their line of products from their Spring 2023 collection.

AP Active™ Pant

If we take a bottom-up approach to the perfect Spring ensemble, it all starts with the right pair of pants and the AP Active pant is a great starting point.

Designed with performance in mind, this lightweight pair of pants are constructed with stretch woven fabrics, and new and improved features like articulated knees, a dedicated knife pocket, and an athletic fit that’s up for anything.

We love these pants from the company. The beautiful twill fabric is reassuringly robust and very comfortable to wear. We also love that it provides a good amount of stretch which is perfect for those hiking situations where some light climbing or incline may be a factor.

It is not only breathable but comes in a variety of colors and the fit is just right. A good Spring pant does not get any better than this.

Sunblocker™ Hoody

Next up is our favorite new piece of clothing, the Sunblocker Hoody.  Made from 100% recycled polyester woven in a knit jersey mélange textured fabric, it not only looks good but is extremely comfortable.

The key feature as the name might imply is the UPF 50 protection and moisture-wicking capabilities it provides. The UPF protection effectively filters harsh UV rays, and the three-piece fitted hood is just perfect for those surprise Spring showers.

There are some stunning muted earthy colors with this one too and with it being so breathable, it is just perfect for superlight backcountry, backpacking, hiking, camping, and more.

Minimizer™ GORE-TEX Paclite® Plus Jacket

Lastly, no ensemble is complete without the perfect Spring jacket and the outerwear we recommend for the season is the Paclite Plus Minimizer jacket.

Coming in at a featherlight 8oz (225g), the Minimizer Jacket is a waterproof, breathable 2-layer Gore-Tex Paclite Plus shell (13D) that you can toss in your pack and forget it, or bust it out when the weather turns mid-hike.

We absolutely love that the jacket is so compact and portable, it stuffs into its own chest pocket with an internal carabiner clip loop. The drawcord hem adjustment and zippered pockets are also a nice touch here for storing gel packs, energy bars, and more, and again the fitted hood is there if you need it.

This comfortable and durable Minimizer jacket will provide you with ultra-lightweight protection from the elements you need this Spring season.
