Left to right: Flora Hybrid Coat, Kern pack, Sherpa Pullover

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

Combo Fabrics Style 2

Left to right: Contour Boot, Axe sunnies, Tricot Gloves

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
Deerskin, goat leather, merino wool, and a wool tricot blend are the power of four at play in this classic glove ideal for around town and milder days on the slopes. The deerskin palm is soft and durable, and the wool-blend backhand provides warmth and a stylish vibe. Win-win.
