Bergans of Norway Flora Hybrid Coat
Wind- and water-resistant softshell teams up with Bergans’s Tecnowool poly-wool blend for a long, sleek women’s coat that looks like a style piece but acts like a technical jacket. $259; bergans.com
Armada Kern 20L Backpack
Heathered polyester meets coated polyester for a textured appearance that’s enhanced by the contrast pop of the Kern’s turquoise zips and straps. $70; armadaskis.com
Holden Men’s Hybrid Sherpa Pullover
It’s fleece times two in this ultracozy layering piece, which uses a thick-pile sherpa fleece in the body and a finer French terry in the arms. A lined zippered chest pocket is a practical plus. $130; holdenouterwear.com
Forsake Women’s Contour Boot
The line between street shoes and mountain togs is blurred with the Contour, thanks to its water-resistant upper, taped seams, and chunky outsole delivered in a snazzy suede-and-heathered-textile package. $115; forsake.com
Shred Optics Axe Sunglasses
The arms of the Axe are made from two materials: steel and a wood-look multilayer acetate. The subtle yet sophisticated result is complemented by Shred’s patented NoDistortion lenses. $160; shredoptics.com
Hestra Deerskin Wool Tricot Gloves
