Mountain Research Anarcho Pax Walker Backpack

—01. 100% nylon shell.

Words

First of all, I'm sure we know this is absolute overkill for your average city dweller, but that's kind of why it's amazing. Mountain Research does an incredible job of creating items plucked from the perfect idealized camping trip and this backpack is no exception; weatherproof and made from nylon, with a leather bottom and shoulder straps. While well out of reach for most of us and not even generally practical, it certainly is a wonder to behold.

Mountain Research Long Socks

—01. Made in Japan.
—02. Available in two colours.

Words

When the mercury drops below freezing, a pair of long socks is a good insurance policy against the cold. They can be pulled up high, when worn with a pair of boots, and will keep in that much more heat. These options, by Mountain Research, also prove that long socks don't have to be scratchy and unattractive.

Mountain Research Long T-Shirts

01. Gray.
02. Made in Japan.

Words

Long button up shirts for men have become more common in the past few seasons, and its a look that I quite like. I haven't seen too many long t-shirts however, and while I'm not certain if they are as appealing, they do offer an interesting layering option.

Mountain Research Dispatcher Pants

01. Brown.
02. Olive.

Words

Mountain Research has really been intriguing me from what I see online with their last few collections. While the brand does seem quite modern and technical, their pieces almost always seem heritage inspired. A real standout for me are these military inspired pants made of cotton duck with a removable belt. The front patch pockets and side slit pockets are a unique and interesting detail. Plus, both colours offered, brown and olive green, are very appealing. Most of the Mountain Research line is nearly impossible to get in North America, so for now I'll have to dream.

01. 100% Cotton.
02. Two-sided print.

Words

Mountain Research produce these cotton scarves every season, and they always feature an interesting bandana or floral print. This one is particularly good, however, as it offers you the choice of both a blue and a white side.
