Your Guide to the Best Hiking Clothes

Title Nine wants you to take a hike! But we also want you to be prepared before you tackle that next trek. We've made planning easy. Read on for some of our top hiking clothes tips and best hiking clothes recommendations to let you conquer a day hike, weekend mini-expedition, or even a week-long adventure.


What features are essential in hiking clothing?

Drawstring
Key Loop

Why settle for shrunken-down men's gear made pink and floral? Outdoor women deserve gear that keeps up. When shopping for hiking gear for women look for shorts, pants, skorts and tops that:

Move with you: combat hiking hazards like chafing and rubbing by choosing hiking apparel for women with spandex and elastane fabrics that stretch to shadow our moves without losing shape. Waists constructed with internal drawstrings or elastic ensure no gaping and a custom fit.

Dry in a snap: look for fast-drying, moisture-wicking fabrics that keep us cool when the mercury rises, and dry fast come impromptu dips in the river.

Carry our stuff: shorts, pants, skorts and jackets with functional pockets give us easy access and freedom from sweaty backpacks and waist packs.

Deliver UPF protection: no need to reapply messy sunscreen when there's sun protection built into the fabric and clothing.

Go from trek to town: our versatile hiking clothes for women leave old school, "outdorky" styles behind.

Protect from the elements: durable water resistant (DWR), wind-resistant and waterproof fabrics keep us covered.

Tough it out: scooting down rocks and scrambling on dirt calls for abrasion-resistant fabrics and durable seam construction.

Adjust to the thermometer: temperature friendly and breathable layers are a must year-round, so consider how cool it may be at the summit or how hot it may be in the valley.

What fabrics make the best hiking clothing for women?

fabrics best for hiking clothing

Performance fabrics are key for enjoying the trail all year long in a range of conditions and intensity. Look for these performance fabrics in our shorts, pants, and tops:

  • ClambR™  Our abrasion-resistant, water-repellent, stretch nylon/spandex fabric. Soft, but rugged enough for every adventure, urban to outback.
  • WickID™  Meaning very, very good wicking that dries 4x faster than cotton. A zap-drying fabric that sits softly on our skin made from ultra-breathable poly, odor-shirking Tencel™, infused with drirelease® fibers that dramatically improve how wetness is pulled from the skin and released into the air.
  • Matahari™  The double agent performance fabric that plays both sides and wins. Working and playing in overtime, Matahari™ goes from sweaty to ready in a snap. Our UPF 35 poly/spandex with StinkStopper™ odor blocking fabric for more adventures with less laundry.
  • Nimblene™  Amphibious in nature, allowing us to move quickly from river to trail, from wet to dry. This heavy hitting, surprisingly sturdy lightweight fabric is fast-drying, stretchy woven poly/spandex that’s certified UPF 50 to boot.
  • Synergy™  Our performance blend of fast-drying poly and sturdy nylon for just the right amount of stretch. All that makes for a lightweight layer that packs a surprise punch of wicking and warmth. Shop Synergy just right insulation tops.
