Smartwool Men's Hudson Trail Fleece Hoodie £104.99 - £140Smartwool Men's Hudson Trail Fleece Hoodie £104.99 - £140

This is a gorgeous hoodie and it feels wrong to refer to it as just a fleece as there’s so much more to it. It’s super versatile, slim-fitting which means it can be worn under a waterproof outer layer, but it also looks great worn alone and transitions easily from street to hills. Of course, it’s made from Merino wool, which means it’s also great at regulating the body temperature, a must-have spring layer.

The Orla Mule is the ultimate in comfort. Lightweight with a quilted upper and microfleece lining available in some absolutely gorgeous designs!

A waterproof hiking sneaker that employs a mix of recycled materials from top-to-bottom, this all-terrain all-star is durable enough for the trail, yet light enough for all day wear.
