Gear Geek: 7 Summer Apparel Solutions

Heat and humidity presents some serious solutioning when it comes to travel. You want to find apparel that doesn’t add more discomfort to the already uncomfortable conditions of summer, but doesn’t leave you wearing nothing but a mesh tank top and short shorts—though if that’s your thing, do it! The rest of us can look at products that employ a host of new fabrics, cuts, and tech aimed to keep the hot-weather traveler comfortable (and fashionable). Here are some of the best.
