There are a lot of things we don't like about the end of summer.
Losing our tanned glow, not being able to surf under blue skies at the weekend, having to put our flip flops away. These are not good things.
Every year however, we're suddenly pulled out of our 'end of summer blues' by the realisation that autumn adventures are just as magical as the summer ones.
Long hikes through red and brown leaf trodden paths, fresh October surf sessions without any holiday makers to avoid in the whitewater, long bike rides to cosy pubs on a Sunday afternoon...
Best of all, when we adventure in Autumn, we can wrap ourselves up in big boots, wooly tights a new, thick knit jumper!
Too get you in the Autumnal mood too, here's eight jumpers from some pretty rad brands that we've got our eye on this year...
This company does one thing and does it well, that thing is jumpers.
Inspired by the seaside and the British coast, these jumpers are seriously well made and you can feel it when you put them on.
We're in love with this unisex navy number. Thick enough to cuddle up but still thin enough to wear under a fitted jacket, we don't think we're ever going to find a reason to take it off!

Hands up if you're a Finisterre groupie! Yup, us too...
The cold water surfing company makes clothing that is BEAUTIFUL, but still tough enough to handle any adventure.
This jumper is so soft you'll want to do everything from hike, to eat, to sleep in it and what's better, the cut looks awesome with jeans and boots.
We love heading out to the beach on a cold day knowing the people who made our jumper appreciate would appreciate that offshore swell as much as we do...

We always look to Billabong for our summer bikini and denim shorts.
When the temperature gets cooler however, they often get forgotten in the hunt for sweatshitts and knits.
This jumper proves that we should definitely keep them in mind in the future!
We are obsessed with the extra long sleeves which come half way down the hand, looks cool and is super necessary for cold red hands carrying boards back up the beach!

How gorgeous is this burnt orange colour?!
If there was one jumper to sum up the Autumn vibes this would be it.
The slouch shoulders and chunky knit give this jumper a really feminine feel, while the high quality material makes it feel sturdy enough for day long hikes and climbing over fences.
We've teamed ours with our trusty parka and brown leather boots for our new staple look of the season.

While not an outdoorsy brand, we had to include Motel in this round up so we could show you this dope jumper!
We worried about how the box shape, along with the this material would look, but the cut is exactly the right length to look edgy instead of frumpy.
The best thing about this jumper? It's as amazing to cuddle up in as it looks like it will be!

For an oversized jumper, this chunky knit feels surprisingly light to wear.
With a brand like Barbour, you know that you're buying high end materials, this particular knit is a yarn blend, including alpaca wool.
We teamed it with some skinny jeans and spent the entire day nuzzling our face into the roll neck when the wind got too cold.
This is the ultimate Sunday afternoon jumper.

This photo does not do this jumper justice. Think it looks nice here? Just wait, the colours look amazing on.
This awesome knit is also an incredibly clever top, made especially for outdoor enthusiasts.
The wool wicks away moisture from base layer garments and warms even when damp, perfect for insulation of a cold wet day!

Just don't like wearing jumpers? How about this alternative?
After the success of their summer poncho, Joules have brought out his winter version in a heavier knit, with a slightly different cut to cover you up in the breeze.
This knit looks seriously nice dressed up (but we've definitely found it handy to throw on after taking off a cold wetsuit on the sand too!)
Check out the three colour options on their site!
