Autumn beckons, the leaves begin to turn, and whilst we may rue the end of summer, the new season brings exciting possibilities and challenges in the outdoors.

Arriving on the breeze this autumn we’ve got a selection of top picks from our menswear buyer Sam. She’s selected gear to get you moving in the coming seasons, from cosy insulation and rugged forest gear to high performance technical garments with a retro twist.

1. Arc’teryx Mera Proclin Hybrid Hoody

“Super lightweight and stretchy this highly technical hybrid is perfect for a host of activities. Microgrid fleece provides lightweight warmth, whilst cleverly body mapped materials help you to shed the heat when your activity levels pick up. Walk, ski or climb, this is the the kind of jacket you won’t want to take off.”

“Outdoor retro chic harking back to a time when Mountain Equipment were taking their first crampon shod steps into the world of outdoor apparel. 50 years later we’re celebrating their ascent to the top with a range of technical and lifestyle clothes that celebrate this heritage. This retro take on the Classic lightline has original ME logos and a cool matt face fabric”
