As we enter mid-February, winter devotees are enjoying their favorite pursuits including backcountry skiing, winter hiking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and simply playing in the snow. Lucky for you, we work with some of the most iconic footwear, outerwear and accessory brands with best in class solutions for staying warm and dry. Here is ourValentine’s Gift to you – recommendations for our favorite winter gear and apparel

Among our favorites are the impressive vest and glove combo from ewool. ewool is a Canadian brand that engineers powerful and rechargeable heated wearables, with patented SnapConnect™ technology making recharging a breeze. ewool’s Metro Heated Vest

sets the gold standard in heated apparel. This lightweight, full zip, heated polar fleece vest provides three customizableheat levels, keeping users warm for up to five hours. The Heated Glove Liners heat individual fingers for up to 7 hours.


When it comes to facing the elements head-on, we recommend the reliable boots from LOWA and Vibram. LOWA’s Renegade Warm GTX Mid Boot, celebrating 25 years, has out of the box comfort, uses waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex Panda fleece insulation and a Vibram ICETREK outsole for enhanced grip. LOWA Renegade Socks, featuring merino wool, provide maximum warmth.

Functionality meets fashion with the Vibram Luxury Rubber Boot, a bold style that seamlessly combines quality, comfort and Vibram Arctic Grip Technology for superior traction on any wet, icy, or snowy surface. The upper consists of Vibram Luxury Rubber, a light and comfortable material that feels as soft as leather, maintaining the high-quality standard and performance of Vibram rubber.


For optimal layering, we suggest a baselayer from UYN, a global leader in sustainable technical apparel, footwear and accessories, made with biomaterials from nature, carefully selected for maximum performance to preserve the environment. The Evolyton Baselayer is 100% bio- based, featuring Natex, a 100% organic nylon fiber for exceptional breathability. Ideal for high- intensity activities in colder months, its inner surface includes grooves for continuous air circulation


For outerwear, we recommend the waterproof and PFA-free Houdini Sportswear Dunfri jacket. Swedish for “down-free”. Ten years ago, Houdini decided not only to challenge the ethics of down jackets, but also their performance. The brand combined the fully recyclable, synthetic padding from PrimaLoft with a wind-resistant outer fabric made of 100%recycled and recyclable polyester. The result is a fully circular and highly technical jacket that keeps wearers warm and dry – and the birds in the sky.
