Living an outdoor lifestyle requires a new addition to your wardrobe—outerwear. Clothes that specifically cater to your outdoor activities can greatly improve the time you spend doing them. When it’s time to do a little bit of shopping, knowing the top qualities to look for in outerwear can help you decide what works best for your specific lifestyle.


Especially when you’re outside a lot, how comfortable your clothing is can make a big difference in your mood. Uncomfortable clothing can make you not want to be outside or do your favorite activities, especially if an essential piece of outerwear, like a winter coat, is uncomfortable. Look at the details of each piece of clothing you’re considering to see what materials they’re composed of. If you’ve found those materials to be uncomfortable before, you might want to reconsider your purchase.

Long-lasting Quality

If you’re going to be spending a significant amount of money on new clothes for outside activities, you want them to last you at least a year. Outdoors activities can be hard on your clothes, so look for anything that can handle the pressure of everyday outdoor activity. The length of time that you want each article to last you may differ depending on how often you’re active and what you’re doing, so make sure to keep that in mind when you make your purchase.

The best way to check for quality, especially while online shopping, is by checking reviews. If you have friends that have bought from a specific brand, ask them how their gear has held up through the months or years. As a rule of thumb, any time you’re paying a lower price for a lookalike product, the product will likely be of poorer quality. It’s best to pay full or sale price on a trustworthy site for quality products that will keep for longer.


You want your clothes to look good! Stylish clothing can make you happy by improving your self-esteem. Your outerwear doesn’t need to flow with popular trends, but make sure it fits in with your own sense of style.

Outerwear That Suits Your Activities

Specific hobbies or activities require different kinds of outerwear. Be sure that your purchase will fulfill the needs of your hobbies. Breathable outdoor clothing is best for workouts, vests and jackets with plenty of pocket storage are good for hiking, and waterproof coats keep you dry when battling the elements. Look for clothing that suits your body type in either our women’s or men’s outdoor fashion catalog. Ill-fitting clothes can cause discomfort or take away important features that you bought the clothes for in the first place, so don’t ignore fitting issues when they happen.

All the most popular brands that have the top qualities to look for in outerwear are available for sale at Escape Outdoors. Browse our site to find the perfect outerwear for your growing outerwear wardrobe.
