Rain or shine, this season's outdoor gear does double-duty as stylish casual wear.

'Beautiful and Diverse'

Jose Witt, the model for these outdoor styles, isn’t just dressing the part. He’s the Southern Nevada director of Friends of Nevada Wilderness (nevadawilderness.org), which advocates for the protection of Nevada’s wildest places. Growing up in Las Vegas, Jose fell in love with the outdoors exploring the nooks and crannies of Red Rock Canyon and Mt. Charleston. As the Friends’ Southern Nevada director, Jose manages a staff of three that produces the organization’s stewardship, outreach, and event programs, which include the Wild Speaker Series and annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival.

“Nevada is such a beautiful and diverse state, it’s a shame folks around the country don’t realize how awesome it is,” says Witt. “Then again, it’s the quality of solitude one can get not far from urban life that makes it so special.”
