2016 Gear Room

We vet products to find the best gear, so check back every week for new reviews.

My younger brother and his fixed-gear bicycle recently moved to Harlem where he’s been perfecting his rolled-skinny-jeans-to-boat-shoes ratio and unearthing obscure Bon Iver remixes. He would probably grow a moustache if he could, but he can’t. Underneath his trappings of hipsterdom, though, he’s basically incapable of buying himself clothes. So I’m getting him this Reversible Flannel Jacket which is cool looking enough for New York (I guess. I live in Boulder, so I wouldn’t really know.) but won’t be out of place when he heads up to Jay either.-H.H. $149; http://www.patagonia.com

Holiday Gift Guide: Jibby Nephew

Does your nephew spend time in the park throwing tricks you can't keep track of (pretzel what?)? Here's what you can get him to keep him safe and stylish. And to up his street cred.

One of my buddies loves to get on the slopes but doesn’t have the means to get up to the mountains as much as he would like or buy the best gear. His bargain bin goggles are probably the best example. Sure, they work, but they put a very uncomfortable orangish-brown spin on an otherwise colorful world. To remedy the situation, I’m getting him a fresh pair of Smith I/O goggles. They come with two high quality spherical lenses— a light one for overcast, a dark one for sunny days. The lenses can be switched easily thanks to Smith’s tricky quick release lens system. Plus, the goggles fit well with a helmet and are about as stylish as goggles can get. -K.L.
