With a relaxed fit for easy layering and a three-layer Gore-Tex outer, the Mission is a do-it-all shell for both resort and backcountry riding. It's a little heavier than other jackets in this category, in part because of the bomber 70-denier fabric, which will survive some serious abuse. Other features include two underarm vents to dump unwanted heat, a powder skirt, and waterproof zippers.

Bibs have been increasing in popularity in recent years and for good reason—they provide complete coverage so you never have to worry about snow or cold air slipping through the seam between your pants and jacket. The Baker is one of our favorites, thanks to the three-layer waterproof breathable membrane that's reinforced with 1000-denier Cordura around the cuffs to prevent cuts or fraying. Fully taped seams make the entire thing completely waterproof and we dig the kangaroo-style chest pocket, which makes access to essentials like snacks and a transceiver easy.

A mid-weight puffy jacket is one of the most versatile pieces of gear you can own. Layer it under a shell on extra cold days, pack it as a just-in-case option, or wear it to the bar for apr├Ęs-ski. The Transcendent features 650-fill down in small baffles which keep the down in place and stuffs into its own pocket.

Patagonia's Capilene is our go-to baselayer for staying warm and sweat-free in the mountains. The key feature is the Polartec Powergrid fabric, which combines squares of soft-to-the-touch polyester with stitched channels that direct moisture away from the skin. Offset shoulder seams and a flatlock construction do a fine job of minimizing chafing, while the gusseted underarms deliver a full range of motion.

These gloves combine goatskin leather with 160-denier nylon shell for a completely weatherproof and durable outer. Inside, a fleece lining wicks away sweat and a thin layer of synthetic insulation keeps the cold at bay.

Strafe Ozone Jacket ($490; 18 percent off)


We usually avoid wearing insulated jackets in the backcountry because it's easy to overheat. Not so with the Ozone, which pairs an ultra-breathable Polartec NeoShell outer with a layer of air permeable Polartec Alpha synthetic insulation. Underarm vents and a removable powder skirt round out the features.
