Dr. Squatch Pine Tar Soap

The lye, pine tar, and sand in this soap sound like they’d be more appropriate for torture than a bath, but we found that the real-deal exfoliation and strong pine scent make it ideal for scrubbing off the malodor built up from multiday mountain adventures.

All Good Lip Balm

We’re coming up on our second winter using All Good Lip Balm and haven’t experienced a single crack or patch of sunburn since throwing it into our ski jacket pocket. Every ingredient is organic, and the essential oils, like tangerine and spearmint, keep everything moisturized during blustery, dry days on the slopes.

Western Rise Bitter Creek Anorak

Western Rise came about when the company’s husband-and-wife team became frustrated with the excessive amount of gear they needed to enjoy the multisport paradise of Vail, where they both worked as ski instructors. The solution: multiuse jackets, like the Bitter Creek Anorak, which couples ample waterproofing and fully taped seams with venting around the stomach and chest. It’s equally adept for fly-fishing in the fall as it is for chasing powder in winter.

Jansport x Hippy Tree Watchtower Pack

The Watchtower Pack transitions from morning commuter to adventure rucksack thanks to double-duty design details like a pouch that can fit a laptop or hydration bladder. While the two-tone colorway, leather trim, and accented zippers make it look more hipster than mountain man, the ample gear pockets and ripstop exterior give it legitimate outdoor cred.

QALO Men’s Outdoor Black Silicone Ring

Orange, California–based ring maker QALO made its name on the CrossFit scene, but its medical grade silicone ring—which can stretch to nearly 500 percent of its original size—belongs on the hand gripping a kayak paddle just as much as the one holding a kettle bell.
