The September Gear Roundup: Heed the call of fall 

Did you feel it? The ever-so-slight chill in the morning air this week? Yep. It had us thinking about fall, too. For us outdoor-loving types, September is a busy time—we’re trying to cram in all the summer adventures we haven’t yet had time for. Meanwhile, the first dreams of the coming ski season are starting to take shape.

We know y’all are on the same wavelength as us, because the Geartrade community has been listing and consigning all sorts of perfect-for-early-fall items. Clearly, great minds gear up alike.

So in between swooshy bike turns down perfect fall singletrack and post-climb tailgate pale ales in the late afternoon light, have a peek at the most in-demand items on Geartrade this month!

Fluffiness, engaged: fall fleece 

We waited all summer to snuggle into our first fleeces of fall, and damn it feels good. There are many varieties of fleece—from the thick, chunky pullovers perfect for town to light, svelte zip-ups that ventilate perspiration away on your morning trail runs.

Right now, you can find every sort of fleece imaginable on Geartrade, including cardio-ready performance layers from Ortovox, Arc’teryx, Mountain Hardwear, and Smartwool. There are also hundreds of casual, plush fleece jackets and vests for men, women, and kiddos from Patagonia, The North Face, Columbia, and Obermeyer. Shop Men's, Women's, Kids' Fleece.

Drink up: camp mugs and travel mugs 

Nothing says “cheers to fall” like a morning cup of joe at camp. It’s time to start getting psyched on warm drinks in sustainable to-go vessels and ultralight backpacking mugs with fold-out wire handles. They’re as perfect for backpacking breakfast as they are for fireside toddy sipping. (Ask us how we know!)

At the moment, you can find quite a few delightful camp mugs on Geartrade from HydroFlask, Kleen Kanteen, Ozark Trail, Stanley, Sea to Summit, Thermos, GSI, and others. Stock up and drink up.

Sleek and swift: running tights

Come chilly fall mornings, your summer shorts for running and biking just won’t cut it. Once it’s time for a little leg coverage, just swoop in on Geartrade for a nice pair of tights for cycling, running, yoga, or just hanging out. Tights and leggings these days come in every imaginable style, length, fabric, and weight, for both men and women.

Pick up a funky pattern from Wild Rye, a classic solid from Athleta, a bike-ready tight from Pearl Izumi, or winter-compatible baselayer from Mammut. Shop Men's, Women's running tights.

Tut, tut: rain jackets 

A light summer shower feels pleasantly cool, but come fall, rain gets uncomfortably cold pretty fast. Make sure you’ve got a solid rain jacket in your pack this season on your hikes, bikes, climbs, and runs—there are so many good ones on Geartrade right now that there’s sure to be a perfect fit for you.

Whether you need a burly three-layer Gore-Tex worthy of a fishing voyage in the Arctic circle, or you just need a packable water-resistant shell to throw in your running vest, we’ve got it. Scope all the options from brands like Helly Hansen, Columbia, Arc’teryx, Marmot, Kuhl, and Outdoor Research. At these UnNew prices, you can afford to stay safe, not soggy. Shop Men's, Women's, Kids' rain jackets.

Go for a spin: bike jerseys 

It’s a good time to log some serious miles on your road or mountain bike while the temps are set to “deluxe.” This time of year, you may opt for a long-sleeve jersey that keeps you warm enough while letting perspiration ventilate away. A deep front zipper comes in handy for bonus airflow while you’re incinerating calories on the uphill, and bike-specific details like low back hems and handy pockets round out the experience.
