Hard Feelings You’ve probably heard by now that an overwhelming body of research shows that time spent in nature has a powerful impact on our overall health and wellness. I write that with confidence because Outside has been reporting on this topic for nearly a decade, including four cover stories since December 2011, when we featured marine biologist Wallace J. Nichols on the cover alongside the headline: “This Is Your Brain on Nature.” Our brand’s mission is to inspire active participation in the world outside, so it only makes sense that we’d get on our soapbox to shout about this research trend. What better way to encourage people to immerse themselves in nature than by sharing the findings that it will make them healthier and happier? Of course, Nature Rx, like so…

A Home Destroyed After marine biologist Wallace J. Nichols saw his house burn in California’s CZU Lightning Complex fire, he wrote a poignant letter to his daughter about the experience (“We Lost Our Home to a Wildfire”). Many readers took to social media to voice their sympathy. I am so sorry for your loss and so moved by your letter to your daughter. As a native Californian with friends and family in Monterey and Santa Cruz Counties, I am deeply saddened by the fires that have become far too common in our beautiful state. As I was reading your letter, I couldn’t figure out why your name was so familiar. Then it dawned on me that your book Blue Mind was on my night-stand. I started reading it a couple of days…

the livability revolution starts now

AS WITH MOST things that permeate our lives, we notice traffic mainly by its absence. When communities across the country went into lockdown mode during the early phases of the coronavirus pandemic, driving dropped by nearly half. We still went outside: to run, to ride bikes, to walk the dog, to see blue skies and green things, to stay sane. And when we did, we saw yawning expanses of empty pavement. For decades in American cities, anyone not in or on a motor vehicle of some sort has been relegated to cramped sidewalks or constricted bike lanes, and pressed into pocket parks. Scrabbling along at the margins of suddenly empty roadways, we noticed the sheer unfairness of it all. To their credit, many cities moved quickly, closing off streets to cars—and opening…

a. Black Diamond Legend gloves $150 A modern classic, the Legend is one of the warmest gloves we’ve ever tested. It’s super durable, and we love that it fits under the cuff of a jacket. b. Helly Hansen Steilhang jacket $700 Warm enough for the lift and cool enough for hard charging, the Steilhang is smartly body-mapped with PrimaLoft synthetic insulation, and also sports vents on the sides and back to allow for impressive ventilation. c. Flylow Baker bibs $420 The Baker offers the weather protection and comfort of technical bibs with a relaxed fit for mobility and style. Massive vents on the inner and outer legs lend cross ventilation on warm climbs. d.

head for the hills

a. Arva Evo5 transceiver $320 Smaller than a smartphone, Arva’s avalanche beacon is wonderfully simple. It uses one AA battery, and a single sliding switch controls power and toggles between send and search modes. The Evo5 locks onto the strongest signal first in the case of multiple burials, has a U-turn directional alert, and comes with a tether and belt. b. BCA Scepter Aluminum poles $90 A unique utility hook on the handle makes easy work of flipping risers and boot levers. The length is adjustable from 41 to 57 inches, and there’s an eight-inch foam grip for various hand positions and a breakaway wrist strap. Upgrade to carbon for $130. c. Mountain Hard-wear Ghost Whisperer skirt $200 When a nostril-searing cold front moves in, wear this skirt while you skin. It’s made with 800-fill…

a. Fjällräven Greenland Re-Wool Pattern Knit sweater $160 This recycled-wool sweater is secretly technical. Its 25 percent recycled polyamide improves abrasion resistance, so it stands tough during skirmishes with zippers and Velcro. Elbow patches made of reused polyester and organic cotton lend practicality and classic good looks. And the knit is warm, breathable, and flattering, making this the ideal layer for slope-to-après itineraries. 11.1 ounces (women’s only) b. North Face Summit Series L3 5050 down hoodie $475 When you need both reliable warmth and sweat management, the L3 5050 is your ticket. Designed specifically for inactive stretches during mountaineering and ski touring, this unusual jacket inserts bands of uninsulated nylon between baffles stuffed with responsibly sourced 800-fill down, which dissipates moisture far better than other puffies do. A draft flap prevents summit winds…
