    Here are some of our favorite picks:

    1. A trendy, stainless-steel Hydro Flask with a wide mouth that’ll keep your favorite beverages cold for HOURS. With a capacity of 20 ounces, this BPA- and phthalate-free water bottle is perfect for both backpacking and casual use (including commuting, if/when commuting becomes a thing again); plus, it comes in loads of gorgeous colors.

    The water bottle in the color Hibiscus

    Promising review: “Great size, not too large and still portable! Keeps drinks cold all day.” –Hanh H.

    Price: $28.46 (originally $37.95; on sale in four colors)

    2. An Osprey Porter pack that’s part-duffel and part-backpack, because it never hurts to have all your bases covered. This pack’s 30-liter size holds everything you need for a (socially distanced) day hike, or even a long weekend, if you’re an efficient packer. Furthermore, folks who have traveled with it in the Before Times say it’s also the perfect carry-on, with pockets for everything, a laptop sleeve, and more.

    The pack

    Promising review: “I cannot be happier with this bag. It is the absolute PERFECT carry-on. I packed it so full and it still fits in the overhead storage on a plane AND under the seat. It fit everything I needed and more! It is so easily adjustable and is so comfortable to wear even when it is full. I love that the straps are stowable, and the laptop sleeve is perfect. I could not be happier with this pack!” –Tiana L Treseder

    Price: $71.97+ (originally $119.95; available in two colors)

    3. A cozy down jacket from Marmot that’s both lightweight and water-repellent, so you can stay toasty without feeling like you’ve turned into a giant marshmallow. The faux fur trim on the hood is removable, letting you adjust for the level of warmth you need; also, it has an unexpectedly vast array of pockets, so you’ll never be at a loss for storage space.

    The jacket

    Promising review: “I bought this as a gift for my mom who lives in Colorado and needed a warm winter jacket. With broad shoulders, the medium fits perfectly with sufficient room to layer on extra cold days. She loves the weight of the jacket which still keeps her warm without the extra bulk. Soft yet durable, she wears this jacket everywhere!” –Ellen H

    Price: $187.46 (originally $249.95; available in sizes XS–XL and in four colors)

    4. A full-zip Huxley fleece perfect for everyday wear OR as an additional layer when you’re out in the Great Outdoors. Extra points for the water-resistant paneling — it helps protect your core in a way that nothing else does.

    Model wearing the fleece in the color French Roast/Orion Blue

    Promising review: “This fleece keeps you nice and warm on days that are mild to chilly. It fits very nicely, and I really like all the zippered pockets. Also very good to use as an extra layer under a thicker jacket.” –David van Pelt

    Price: $59.97 (originally $99.95; available in sizes S–XXL and in three colors)

    5. A duo of Eagle Creek compression cubes that’ll save SO MUCH SPACE in your pack. This set includes one half-cube and one full one, both of which are super lightweight, water-resistant, and anti-staining. And thanks to the compression zippers, you can keep your stuff organized without wasting valuable space.

    The compression cubes in the design Cali Hiero

    Promising review: “These are the best for traveling. Multiple sizes make it easy to grab what you need and love it for taking just a big duffel and tossing them all in. Love the compression. Packs it in just that much tighter.” –Christine D

    Price: $31.96 (originally $39.95)

    6. Some touchscreen-compatible liner gloves so you can check your phone without having to fiddle with removing your gloves first. This pair is made of stretchy Polartec for flexibility, but also boasts goat leather palm patches to make sure you can keep your grip on your ski poles (or whatever else you're carrying). And if you need more warmth, heavier-weight mittens layer on top of these streamlined beauties with ease.

    The gloves in the color Black

    Promising review: “I LOVE these gloves. Perfect weight. Really soft. On really cold days I wear them as liners to keep my hands extra warm. They are also great to wear on their own running or hiking. I am very happy with this purchase and recommend to anyone who needs a pair of gloves that can be used for so many different things.” –Ciera Perry

    Price: $31.96 (originally $39.95; available in sizes XS–XL)

    7. A basic long-sleeved crew neck so versatile, you’ll want to wear it inside AND out. Its Merino wool material keeps you toasty while wicking away moisture and keeping smells from, uh… smelling. What more could you want?

    Model wearing the base layer in the color Black

    Promising review: “I find myself reaching for this perfect layer on almost every outing I go on these days. It's super comfy, keeps me warm but also wicks away sweat when I'm working, and is virtually un-stinkable. This crew is also flattering, fitted, and a great length for me. Though I have been using synthetics for a while now in place of cotton, the extra investment for wool is completely worth it! Will be getting more colors for sure.” –Christin Healey

    Price: $63.75 (originally $85; available in sizes S–XL)

    8. A pair of anti-fog, polarized ski and snowboard goggles from Zeal so you can hit the slopes with a clear line of sight. The frames are impact-resistant, too — AND they’re compatible with helmets, so you can stay safe and stylish at the same time.

    The goggles in the color Alpine Camo/Phoenix

    Promising review: “Yes, the views through polarized lens are sharp, clear, and amazing! And, the color-ways are shiny too! Very impressed … from the sturdy box, to the oversized storage bag/soft cleaning cloth, to the large frames and spherical lenses with super wide-angle panoramas. (Sometimes seems like you're not even wearing goggles.)” –VblueV

    Price: $143.16 (originally $178.95; available in two colors)

    9. A pair of sturdy Sorel boots that’ll keep your tootsies both warm and dry while you stomp through the snow. The third iteration of Sorel’s Slimpack design, these lace-up boots are waterproof and insulated, with padded wool collar traps and a microfleece lining to keep heat from escaping. Bonus: The chunky heel adds a little height without sacrificing stability.

    Model wearing the boots in the color Elk

    Promising review: “So comfortable! Great quality, love them!” –Destiny T

    Price: $112.46 (originally $149.95; available in sizes 6–11 and in five colors)

    10. A breathable cycling jersey to wick away sweat so you can stay cool even on the most strenuous of rides. The compression fit also makes sure your muscles have the support they need, while the three pockets at the back give a handy spot to stash important stuff like your phone and ID.

    The jersey in the color Arctic/Mist Green

    Promising review: “My favorite jersey finally got torn after six years of use two to three times a week, so I got another Pearl Izumi. … The fit is wonderful, long and close. … Pockets roomy and well placed. … Fits snugly at the neck, looser in the sleeves for me. No reason to think this won't be another favorite.” –Sandra T.

    Price: $41.99+ (originally $70; available in sizes XS–XL and four colors)

    11. A quarter-zip Smartwool base layer, because it’s equally important to keep in the heat AND be able to vent when needed. Perfect for skiing, hiking, and other outdoors-y activities, this long-sleeved option is made of Merino wool with a nylon core — which means that in addition to providing warmth and helping to regulate your body temperature, it also keeps odors at bay.

    Model wearing the base layer in the color Black

    Promising review: “Very comfortable, surprisingly durable for how thin the fabric is, and very odor resistant. I use this as a base layer or light-mid layer when traveling or in the backcountry (e.g. multi-day yurt trips) when I want to be able to wear things a number of times without getting too smelly. The short sleeve and quarter zip versions are great, too.” –Anthony M.

    Price: $67.50+ (originally $90; available in sizes S–XXL and in three colors)

    12. A much-loved camping chair, so you can relax by the fire in the greatest of comfort. The frame is made of powder-coated steel, while the seat itself cradles you like a lil' hammock. It’s also foldable and includes its own, shoulder strap-adorned back for easy transport.

    The camping chair in the color Rust

    Promising review: “We've bought these chairs for ourselves and as gifts for our favorite adventurers. They're compact for traveling and hauling around, but they're sturdy enough for comfy lounging. They work well for campfire hangs and outdoor concerts alike. The only real way this chair could be better would be if it had a cupholder. Looking forward to many years of chatting over beers in these chairs.” –Alexis B

    Price: $33.71 (originally $44.95)

    13. A convertible Sherpani bag that can be a tote, a crossbody, or a backpack, depending on what you’ve got going during any given day. It’s made of heavy-duty nylon, but the color blocking gives it a sophisticated look that’ll blend into a wide variety of situations. Both the backpack and shoulder straps are padded, and it’s got a sleeve big enough for a 15-inch laptop, too.

    Model holding the bag in the color Champagne

    Promising review: “I received the Camden bag … as a gift and couldn't love it more. There are so many features – from being able to wear it crossbody or as a backpack, to having a pocket to go over the handle of your suitcase for travel – it is so useful and fun. I like that it has a padded pocket for my laptop and it's great to have multiple options for water bottles (one is inside!). I have many Sherpani bags and they are all still in great condition. I have no doubt I will be using this one for a long time.” –Sarah Dupee

    Price: $79.96 (originally $99.95)

    14. A pair of comfy, slouchy, drawstring pants you’ll basically want to live in. Made of airy, Lenzing Modal crinkle gauze material, they’re perfect for lounging (which, let’s face it, is something most of us are doing… a lot more of now than we may have previously). And hey, guess what? They’re also Fair Trade Factory Certified, so you can feel good about wearing them for more reasons than one.

    Model wearing the pants in the color Blue Misty

    Promising review: “I have had this pant for three days and have worn [it] three days in a row now. It is the perfect spring/summer everyday pant. I bought it in black and the fabric is a little sheer when I held it up to the light, but it didn't bother me enough to stop wearing them. The fabric is so comfortable and the fit is great. These are definitely great travel pants too. I plan on buying them in more colors.” –Colleen Burns

    Price: $31.58 (originally $78.95; available in sizes S–XL and in two colors)

    15. A Patagonia pompom beanie to keep your noggin warm and adorable at the same time. This new take on Patagonia’s OG Powder Town beanie is a little lighter and more breathable than its older sibling; it’s also made out of recycled polyester, making it a bit more eco-friendly. Everybody wins!

    The beanie in the color Vote The Planet/Knit Purple

    Price: $29.25 (originally $39; available in two colors)

    16. A DMM Pivot belay device that experienced climbers say can’t be beat. Made of aluminum, it includes both high- and low-friction modes, as well as a pivoting auto-blocking guide mode.

    The pivot belay device in Blue

    Promising review: “I've been using this for several years now on over a hundred pitches, and in my opinion, this is the best trad belay device on the market. The guide mode is bomber; I often bring up seconds and with one or two ropes it functions seamlessly. Saves so much energy on long multi-pitch days. Catches falls effortlessly. Handles perfectly in all conditions including winter ice climbing. Highly recommended.” –Shane Kenyon

    Price: $26.21 (originally $34.95; available in three colors)

    17. Some quick-drying utility pants so you can be ready for anything, whether you’re deep in the mountains or way out in the desert. Their stretchy double weave provides excellent freedom of movement — and, of course, they’re equipped with plenty of pockets to keep your most important gadgets and gear close at hand.

    The pants in the color Pirate Black

    Promising review: “I got these mostly for hiking, but have ended up wearing them for everyday pants too. I love that they are so stretchy and that they have a high waist that stays up.” –Sarah K

    Price: $44.98+ (originally $89.95; available in sizes 0–12 and in two colors)

    18. A fancy-yet-rugged Barbour wool scarf to cozy up in during the coldest winter temperatures. The classic, tartan-inspired design goes with everything, and it’s hard to beat the snuggliness of a Merino-cashmere blend.

    The scarf in the color Modern

    Promising review: “This scarf is another example of Barbour’s exemplary quality! It is a good length, soft, comfortable, and provides the extra warmth I need for chilly/windy days hiking on mountain trails. … Highly recommend!” –Nancy D.

    Price: $56 (originally $80; available in five colors)

    19. A Gore-Tex insulated ski jacket packed with features like an adjustable hood and cuffs to keep you warm, dry and in ~style~ on the slopes. Note that this piece runs slightly small, so if you like a little more give in your gear, you may want to size up.

    Model wearing the ski jacket in the color French Roast

    Promising review: “Literally love this jacket. From time to time, it really does get cold enough here in Utah for me to need an insulated jacket to wear on the slopes and this fits the bill. I tend to run a bit warmer, so even though it's only 60 g in the torso, it's incredibly warm for me with just a base layer and bibs under it. But this makes it perfect for tooting around town or dog walks in our 20-degree temps. … I would say that this is a touch small in the torso and sleeve cuffs, but nothing that cannot be dealt with.” –Jenn W

    Price: $279.96 (originally $399.95; available in sizes XS–XL and in three colors)

    20. Some lightweight Smartwool trail socks, because your toes deserve to be babied even when you’re putting them through their paces. Cushioned for comfort and designed for thermal regulation, these outdoor socks work just as well for a stroll around the block as they do for a little light hiking.

    The socks in the color Medium Gray

    Promising review: “Perfect socks. I have plenty of years buying the same socks; they keep fitting great and being the best option for hiking, traveling or just hanging around.” –Agnes Vanessa Alvarez Torres

    Price: $19.56+ (originally $27.95; available in sizes M–XL and in two colors)

    21. A fleecy, furry Patagonia vest for your kiddos that’ll make sure they’re appropriately bundled up for the weather. The thick pile of this zip-up fleece provides tons of warmth in one playful package — and it’s great for layering on those REALLY cold days.

    The vest in the color Berlin Blue

    Promising review: “Bought this for both my children, and they both love them. In the autumn they never took them off, and I'm sure that will return when spring comes back.” –Kratzer

    Price: $47.20 (originally $59; available in kids' sizes XS–XL and on sale in four colors)

    22. A waterproof envelope from Outdoor Research that’ll keep all your most important stuff dry, whether you get caught in the rain on a hike or like to hit the water from time to time. The two-layer construction is submersible, and the window is compatible with touchscreens on both sides, providing excellent form AND function.

    The envelop in the color Lemongrass

    Promising review: “So helpful. Lots of room for … loose items you want to keep dry or in order.” –Andrew Rager

    Price: $23.16 (originally $28.95; available in two colors)

    23. A pair of wet weather-friendly Vans boots that look almost like sneakers. They’re water-resistant and insulated, with lug outsoles that provide ample traction – but they’re still lightweight enough for everyday use when the air is full of rain, snow, or that weird, messy "wintry mix" nonsense.

    The boots in the color Black/Grape Leaf

    Promising review: “These puppies are great. I picked up a pair for the winter months in SLC since when it rains and snows down here … it tends to be quite wet. The style of these Vans [is] pretty awesome. … The heavy-duty lug on the bottoms of the shoes area also going to offer that great traction on wet surfaces as well as great elevation off of the wet surface.” –Ian Bisantz

    Price: $75.96 (originally $94.95; available in men’s sizes 4.5–10 and women’s sizes 6–11.5 and in two colors)

    24. A highly-rated headlamp so you can light your way even in the darkest of places. This adjustable option transitions with a simple tap between numerous modes. It even has a "brightness memory" feature, meaning that when you turn it back on, it'll remember what brightness and proximity settings you had enabled the last time you turned it off. Talk about smart!

    The headlamp in the color Aqua

    Promising review: “I've been through a lot of headlamps and this seems to be THE BEST bang for your buck! It's bright, has plenty of battery life and their new light up indicator on side of the lamp will show you how much battery you have left. It would be nice if they had four lights for the battery indicator instead of three, but I'll take it! The headlamp is easy to dim and brighten and it will remember that same brightness or mode for when you turn it back on. It's waterproof up to one meter in water so you don't have to worry about it failing on you in the middle of an adventure.” –Marcus Sulskis

    Price: $29.96 (originally $39.95; available in six colors)

    25. And an oversized turtleneck sweater you’ll want to drink SO MUCH hot cocoa in. I mean, hey, you’re going to need SOMETHING to cozy up in after a long, cold day outside, right?

    Model wearing the sweater in the color Oatmeal

    Promising review: “The fit is spot-on for this one and the material is incredibly soft. This turtleneck fits how you wish all ‘relaxed fit’ items fit, bigger and boxier but flattering. … This definitely fits true to size and I would recommend going with the smaller size if you are between sizes. … Super cozy [and] soft.” –Laurel Nelson

    Price: $55.96 (originally $79.95; available in sizes XS–XL and in three colors)
