FIVE TEN AP­PROACH PRO

These slim, low-pro­file can­vas ap­proach shoes with a rub­ber­ized ex­oskele­ton and Stealth C4 sole were per­fect for the hot, tech­ni­cal ap­proaches and de­scents in Wadi Rum. “These were com­fort­able and pre­vented me from fall­ing off the count­less sand­stone domes atop Jebel Rum,” says Cor­ri­gan. $84, fiveten.com

OUT­DOOR RE­SEARCH LA PAZ SUN HOODY

“The desert taught me that be­ing more cov­ered can keep you cooler,” says Cor­ri­gan. He wore the La Paz, a UPF 50+ full-cov­er­age, 10.3-ounce layer per­fect for the Mid­dle East’s un­for­giv­ing sun—and that does away with the con­stant need to reap­ply sun­block. $85, out­door­re­search.com
