Winter Gear Guide

FOR HER



1. Sportube | Toaster Heated Boot Bag

Slip on a pair of nice toasty boots with this handy heated boot bag. Equipped with three temperature settings, a standard outlet plug and vehicle plug, you can heat your gear en-route to the slopes. $229.95


2. HydraPak | Stow 500mL / Stow 1L

A lot of ski resorts don’t offer plastic water bottles (props to them) so the collapsible, lightweight bottle is going to stay stashed in our ski coats all winter. $14 / $17


3. Obermeyer | Down Mitten

With 600 Allied Goose Down fill, these stylish mittens aren’t bulky but supply plenty of warmth. The cuffs are adjustable and the mitten is offered in three sizes. $99


4. Native | Dropzone Goggles

Complete with a separate low light lens, these unisex goggles fit comfortably around the nose and feature grease- repellent and anti-fog coatings. $179


5. Helly Hansen | Powderstar Jacket

Advanced technology keeps you warm or cool depending on your level of activity, and supreme waterproofing works on the snowiest of days. Added features include a pocket designed to keep your phone battery from draining and a RECCO Advanced Rescue system. $550


6. Smartwool | One Piece Baselayer

We love this 250 gram Merino wool baselayer. The one piece design keeps our backs from getting exposed, and the droptail makes for easy bathroom breaks. Our only gripe is that the fabric tends to get a bit baggy after a few hours of wear. $225


7. Mammut | Alvier Armor Hardshell Pants

Available for women and men, these sturdy pants feature abrasion-proof zones which help extend the life of the pants and keep out water and wind. The pockets are big enough for a larger phone or the Hydrapak water bottle. $499


8. Wigwam | Altitude Socks

While not the warmest socks around, we did find that after a day on the slopes our feet were dry and blister-free. $22


FOR HIM



1. Dakine | Mission Pro 18L / 25L Backpack

This snow pack offers plenty of versatility with vertical snowboard carry or diagonal ski carry straps and a fleece-lined goggle pocket. There is space for a few essentials too. $85 / $125


2. Chaos | CTR Mistral Multi-Tasker Pro

With a heat generating fleece lining and an anti-bacterial mesh, this is ideal for layering under a helmet. Lycra binding around the face effectively keeps the cold out. $34.99


3. Helly Hansen | Ullr Sogn HT Gloves

Features on these waterproof gloves include touch-capable index fingers and thumbs as well as a gauntlet cuff and undercuff cinch strap. With 3M Thinsulate 150 gram insulation, they

keep hands nice and toasty. $100


4. Oakley | Factory Pilot Blackout Snow Goggle

The cylindrical and rimless googles are particularly comfortable around the eyes and give a wide field of vision. Oakley’s Prizm optics provide good light control. $200


5. Buff | Polar Multifunctional Headwear

The dual fabric headwear comes in a wide range of colors for men and women and can be worn 10 different ways. The fleece at the base keeps necks toasty and microfiber on the top is breathable. $32


6. Lorpen | T3 Ski Superlight

The Merino wool-nylon-Lycra blend sock is thin and ideal for technical skiers. There is extra cushioning in the shin, and they are fast drying and moisture wicking. $24.99


7. Mammut | Alvier Armor Hardshell Pants

Available for both men and women, the Alvier jacket is the counterpart to the pants (see above). The hardshell jacket features a detachable snowskirt, a helmet-compatible hood and hand gaiters. $599
