The Best Women’s Hiking Tops of 2023

Outside | Kelly Bastone

Twelve testers donned 36 tops to find this summer’s best new shirts, midlayers, and baselayers.

Make no mistake, these pieces are all business when it comes to performance: They wick sweat, banish chafing, and survive skirmishes with rocks and scrub. But each one also has a softer side that won the hearts of our trail-loving tester team. Beyond wowing us with their fit and comfort, this season’s top performers inspired affection and sometimes, true love. Here’s what made us swoon.
