Yes, they’re expensive, but Smartwool shirts are the ultimate adventure shirt for a few reasons. Polyester shirts (the most common performance material) cannot match the wicking and temperature control of merino wool. Period. Over time, the shirts prove to be durable. The best part? They don’t smell. Seriously. I wore one for a week straight, without washing, and it felt like a new shirt everyday. You won’t believe it until you try it.

These women’s Altra Running Shorts are recommended by female ultrarunners for their light, durable fabric that provides an athletic fit with plenty of room to jump roots and scramble over boulders. The durable, moisture-wicking fabric will not fade with heavy rains, dusty desert adventures, or all of the wash cycles it is bound to experience. Click the image above to shop on Amazon!



The Lone Peak trail shoes by Altra have a low-profile, rugged grip that takes hold of the slipperiest surfaces and gives traction on the roughest of terrain. The shoe is breathable while retaining durability and drains great on wet runs. The wide toe box will keep your toes blister-free and comfortable on your longest training runs. NOTE: this is a zero-drop shoe. If you’re not currently in zero-drop shoes, these could be used for your transition. Click the above image to purchase on Amazon!

These Nike Challenger shorts aren’t normally listed on trail running sites or in adventure magazines, but Nike does performance gear right time and time again. Surprisingly, Nike is usually a less expensive options than other adventure brands, so you really are getting a good deal from a reputable brand. I love to run with shorts that have pockets, and these fit the bill. Lightweight, quick drying, and incredibly durable, your ultraunning gear checklist isn’t complete without a pair of Nike shorts.

Logging some road-training miles for your next race? Check out Altra’s neutral zero-drop road shoes like the Escalante. With the same wide toe box as the Lone Peak’s, these shoes are built with long miles in mind. NOTE: this is a zero-drop shoe. If you’re not currently in zero-drop shoes, these could be used for your transition. Click the above image to purchase on Amazon!
