Evolution: All-Year Gear

The snow can't last all summer, but your gear can. These winter staples shine year-round.

1
Move seamlessly from snow to dirt with the adjustable LEKI AirErgo 3 poles ($100). They extend from 67 to 145 cm for easy ascents, descents and pack-stuffing. The contoured foam grip is comfortable with gloves or without. leki.com

2
The soft and stretchy Patagonia R.5 ($79) doubles as a winter midlayer and a summer standalone. The light, quick-drying pullover won?t keep the wet out, but it?s warmer than its weight implies. patagonia.com

3
A foot-hugging fit makes the Merrell Chameleon Stretch ($90) hiking friendly, while its slip-on style suits après-ski perfectly. Add a rugged sole with multidirectional traction and you?re set for any season. merrell.com

The 50-ounce camelbak SnoBowl ($40) is equally at home on the ski lifts (it fits over or under a parka) and on the bike trails. An insulated tube and reservoir keeps liquids ice-free in winter and cool in summer. camelbak.com
