Canada Goose HyBridge Lite jacket
Classic puffs are perennially stylish. Canada Goose's HyBridge Lite jacket ($495) pairs a sleek, fitted cut with 800-fill goose down for a jacket that's extra warm and looks cool.
Sony a7s camera
Unmatched for low-light sensitivity, the a7s ($2,500) is a sleek, compact, full-frame camera with 4K video resolution and a super-fast electronic viewfinder. It's also incredibly quiet, so you won't startle the wildlife.
Stanley Coffee System
Stanley's one-liter Coffee System ($60) comes with a tiny French press, integrated water pot, and two cups, all nested in a thermos with the brand's time-proven vacuum insulation. We used it to make coffee at 4:45 A.M. before ski touring and came back at 9 A.M. to a brew that was almost too hot to drink.
Aether Shelter hoodie
With top-shelf synthetic insulation stuffed inside an extra-smooth ripstop shell, Aether's Shelter hoodie ($265) offers superior warmth in a slick package for journeys that mix backcountry rambling with more citified outings.
Brunton All Day
The Brunton All Day ($50) replaces the GoPro Hero 3+ case with a weatherproof battery that lasts four times as long as GoPro's. It's bulky and not totally waterproof, but that's a fair trade for not missing the money shot because you were swapping the power supply.
Herschel Little America backpack
The ventilated straps and back panel on Herschel's Little America backpack ($90) kept our shirt dry on a monthlong walkabout in India, and the magnetic closures make for easy access.
Fjällräven Övik Winter jacket
Lined with teddy fleece and cut from heavy-duty water-resistant fabric, Fjällräven's Övik Winter jacket ($300) is our favorite for chopping wood on frigid mornings or just walking the kids to the bus stop.
