Ugg Aiden – Footwear: Reviews

The water-resistant Aidens can handle snowy driveways and sloppy sidewalks. But because they're not insulated (but have comfy sheepskin liners), these shoes are a good choice for California winters...

Marmot Exum Work Glove - Gloves: Reviews

Lightly lined with fleece and reinforced in all the right places, the synthetic/leather Exum won the all-purpose award. Supple but durable goatskin won't crack like hardware store specials. marmot.com

Scott Tartan - Poles: Reviews

The Tartan's ergonomic grips are the most comfortable of any here, and the aircraft-grade aluminum should stand up to years of abuse. scottusa.com

Petzl E+Lite - Lanterns & Headlamps: Reviews

We took this mini-lamp everywhere—hiking, paddling, road-tripping—because it weighs an ounce, has several modes (including a red LED for night vision), and, thanks to a highly adjustable...

L.L. Bean Storm Chaser - Footwear : Reviews

They're waterproof. The outsoles are specifically designed for increased traction on wet surfaces. And they fit and feel like running shoes. In other words, they're like your old clunky duck boots,...
