Sure, you can get away with wearing your baselayers and shells around a ski town every night after apres. Maybe you’ll even trot straight into a nice restaurant for dinner while still wearing your ski boots, especially if your name is Glen Plake and you’ve been skiing bumps all day. But is that really the vibe you want to put out every day and night? It’s a long season. Save some of that swagger for the hill the next day and check out these off-hill clothes, now available in Outside’s new Shop, that will make you feel right at home in any mountain town.
Black Diamond Forged Denim Pants ($120)
Originally designed for climbing, these Cordura Stretch Denim pants are made of 75 percent Cotton, 10 percent Nylon, 13 percent Polyester, and 2 percent Elastane, giving them not only a light strength-to-weight ratio but they’re engineered to fit and stretch with all of your movements. Go ahead, bust out a few yoga poses while you wait to be seated at dinner. These won’t hold you back, even with their slim, tapered fit. BUY NOW.
Black Diamond Roadie Quarter-Zip Fleece ($100)
On those cozy winter days when you don’t want to get out of bed, you kind of don’t have to with this high-loft fleece jacket that might as well be wearing a warm blanket around town. Forgot your gloves? Who cares? You’re not going to want to take your mitts out of the two-handed kangaroo pocket in the front of this quarter-zip pullover. It’s made of 70 percent polyester, 30 percent recycled polyester, and 100 percent warmth and vibe retention. Get used to wearing this one all the time. BUY NOW.
Black Diamond Serenity Flannel Shirt ($69)
Technical outwear and mid-layers are amazing in their ability to retain warmth and breathe, but the crinkly face fabric can’t hold a candle to the soft hand feel of 100 percent Organic Brushed Flannel Woven like this wintery piece. Even traditional flannels can be a bit rigid in their design, but the Serenity’s cut and back pleat provide ultimate freedom of movement for maximum comfort and chill. The drop-tail on this one also covers a bit more of your butt to keep blustery gusts out. BUY NOW.
Mammut Lenni Shirt ($59)
If you’re going to button yourself and your shirt up for travel days or hang around town with the option for a spontaneous hike, you might as well wear a shirt like the Lenni with an antimicrobial treatment designed to reduce unpleasant odors. Combine that with active moisture-wicking fabric and a movement fold on the back, and you’ll be sure to stay comfortable and fresh all day long. BUY NOW.
Mammut Mammut ML Pull ($79)
Don’t you dare go on a ski trip without a leisure sweater! It will make your book better, your tea warmer, and your cookies sweeter, especially this one’s mix of 95 percent cotton and 5 percent spandex for the perfect amount of cozy stretch. As a bonus, the ML Pull comes with several options for embroidered symbols, including a mountain, carabiner, rope, binoculars, coffee cup, or mammoth—take your pick! BUY NOW.
Prana Brion Short 11 in. Inseam ($69)
If you find yourself wearing a pair of shorts in ski season, they better be good ones with some serious mountain chops. Start with stretch woven, moisture-wicking, quick-drying fabric, and a ventilated inseam gusset, add abrasion and water resistance to the nylon and elastane blend, and offer it in two inseam lengths and you have to Brion, with five-pocket style and seven earthy color options. No wonder you only wear pants when absolutely necessary. BUY NOW.
Prana Foundation Scoop Neck Tank ($39) and Foundation Short Sleeve V-Neck ($45)
Bluebird days require bluebird style. Let the high-altitude vitamin D shine down on your pasty winter flesh with this tank and v-neck, both of which have a stretch jersey material with just enough spandex for comfort while still maintaining a flattering fit. These shirts feel like wearing around a light hug all day. BUY THE TANK NOW. BUY THE V-NECK NOW.
Prana Olivia Short 7 in. Inseam ($59)
On a trip to the mountains, you only really need one pair of shorts, but choose wisely. Start with the Olivia’s stretchy nylon fabric that’s also quick-drying and abrasion-resistant, then appreciate the mid-rise and relaxed fit with a button front fly. Moisture-wicking capabilities, along with DWR coating, make sure that sweat gets out and stays out along with any precipitation you might encounter. Remember: Skiing in shorts is sometimes almost, if not quite, as fun as shredding powder. BUY NOW.
