Fall has officially arrived, and with it comes a slew of fantastic outdoor activities.

Travel Gear for Fall: Collapsible Down Vests
A down vest is a fantastic choice in outerwear for fall, when temperatures are nippy, but not quite cold yet. Down vests will keep your torso warm, without the sleeves that can make you over-heat. Opting for a collapsible vest that packs into a small pocket or carrying case is a great accessory to throw into a purse or tote bag.
That way it is always there when you need it without forcing you to carry it everywhere you by hand. The down material is also a fantastic choice since it is incredibly lightweight and incredibly warm. It can be worn layered with other coats or jackets, or just on its own as a lightweight warming layer.
Travel Gear for Fall: Hiking Boots
While hiking is another fantastic fall activity, you don’t need to be hitting the trails to enjoy the benefits of good hiking boots. Hiking boots are generally rugged and water resistant, which means you won’t be slipping all over fallen leaves. In the event of a chilly fall shower, your shoes and feet won’t be wet and cold. Plus, they lace tightly over your foot and ankle which will help to keep you warm and cozy without exposing that small bit of ankle that tends to peak out over normal shoes.
Whether you are enjoying a hiking trail once the weather has cooled down enough, or are just running errands on a wet, slippery day, hiking boots are a fantastic fall footwear choice.
