Patagonia Box Quilt Jacket 
patagonia.com
$179

The box quilt is a hoodie on steroids. It has a generous cut and just the right amount of insulation for crisp fall weather. If your weekend plans include hanging in the mountains, drinking a pint of Oktoberfest beer on the porch and watching the leaves fall (you do have that planned, right?), then this is your jacket.

Patagonia Regular Fit Jeans
patagonia.com
$79

Patagonia tracks the environmental impact of all aspects of its manufacturing process. While you might guess that these jeans are made from organic cotton, you probably didn’t know that they traveled 10,700 miles to get to the Reno Distribution Center, or generated 85 pounds of carbon dioxide and 84 ounces of waste. With a high-quality jean like this, you’ll probably log more than 10,700 miles in them yourself. 

Arc’Teryx Bird Head Toque
$35
arcteryx.com

Arc’Teryx makes arguably the most polished technical gear on the planet, but we’ll get to that when the snow flies. For fall, all you need from the Vancouver-based outfitter is a bright-orange toque, as the Canadians call it, to keep you head warm and out of the hunter’s scope.

Smith Tactic Polarized
$119
smithoptics.com

The Tactic sunglasses provide all the tech you’d expect from Smith, packaged in a low-key look that blends in with anyone’s style. These are ideal for a fall day of fly-fishing, with a polarized Carbonic TLT lens and an anti-fog coating to keep your vision clear in any weather.
