Tellus Performance Wear for Summer Hiking

Tellus Performance Wear for Summer Hiking

Paved urban paths. Steep rocky trails. Pine-needle-covered tracks. Sandy, full-sun desert treks. Plan your summer hikes and pick up Tellus gear for every type of trail. Tellus outdoor wear delivers the comfort and performance you seek for every adventure and we’re here to help you put together summer hiking outfits.

What to wear hiking in hot weather

Hiking conditions in the Pacific Northwest can quickly change from hot to wet to chilly. Trekking in the Rockies starts cool, gets scorching, then turns freezing. The desert southwest tracks show off cacti and lizards in arroyos that can instantly change from hot and dry to rushing water when it rains. Trekking in the gorgeous, lush green southeast can be perfect or sticky, hot and humid.

Before heading out to explore trails, it’s a good idea to learn about the local climate and the weather conditions to watch out for. Hot weather demands clothing that’s breathable, wicks away moisture and dries quickly. You also want to pay careful attention to your abilities and understand your weaknesses when temperatures get high and the sun is shining bright. Hats, sunglasses, long-sleeve shirts and pants save you from sunburn, scratches, scrapes and bug bites. Tellus has all of the summer performance wear you need.
