It's no secret that I'm a fan of gear from GoLite. They have a reputation for making excellent products that are high in quality, very durable, and light in weight. Additionally, the company has made a commitment to limit their impact on the environment which I find highly commendable as well. When I traveled to Nepal this past spring, I even took one of their sleeping bags along, and found it to be an excellent piece of kit to have while trekking in the mountains.
Just before I left for my recent trip to Montana, I received a couple of new pieces of GoLite gear and with anticipation of having the opportunity to test them, I stuffed them in my pack, and took them along to Yellowstone. The first item was a Manitou shortsleeve tech shirt and the other was a pair of Yunnan hiking shorts, both of which seemed like the would make a great addition to my hiking wardrobe. Perfect for warm weather trekking.
While both of these gear items are designed for hiking, they also are perfect for travel too. Since they are designed and made by GoLite, they pack down very small and weigh next to nothing in your pack. They're also versatile, look great, and wear well, which means they would be perfect for an extended trip abroad where you want to travel light without compromising performance.
Like most of their gear, you can't go wrong with these two products from GoLite.
MSRP: Manitou Shirt: $45/Yunnan Shorts: $65
