List Rules Vote up the top, most reliable outdoor gear companies.

Special gear is required to explore the great outdoors. Hikers know this better than most – there's nothing worse than getting blisters due to the wrong footwear, or getting chilly on a high mountain trail because you forgot to pack an insulated jacket. Whether you're a seasoned trail fiend or a hiking newbie looking to take a casual walk through the woods, there's a clothing brand for you. Some hiking apparel is designed for mountain treks during winter weather, while other good hiking clothes are designed for keeping cool in summer months. Many of the top hiking clothing brands also make great footwear.

What companies will you find on this list of the best hiking clothing brands? The North Face is a brand synonymous with winter hikes. The company's sleek designs provide hikers with ample mobility while its warm textiles keep chilling winds at bay. Marmot is another great clothing brand for hikers.

One of the most important pieces of clothing for hikers are socks, and SmartWool makes some of the best. Other good companies featured on this top hiking clothing brands list include Columbia, REI, and Mountain Hardwear.
