Arc'teryx Men's Atom LT Jacket ($181; 30 percent off; only XXL size)
A versatile, highly adaptive jacket for all aerobic activities, the Atom LT's DWR treated exterior is durable and wind-resistant for protection. Coreloft insulation keeps you warm even when wet, an adjustable hem provides a personalized fit and feel, and stretch side panels promote unobstructed mobility.
Chaco Men's Z/2 Classic Sandal ($73; 30 percent off)
The Z/2 takes the adjustable Chaco webbing straps you love and gives them more room to thrive. Made with 28-millimeter webbing and ahh-inducing Chaco cushioning for all-day support and all-terrain performance, if you don't own a pair of Chacos, you're missing out.
The North Face Men's Mountain Sweatshirt Full-Zip Hoodie ($82; 45 percent off)
This lightweight synthetic jacket straddles the line between urban style and active insulation. It's cozy and looks good enough to wear around town on the weekends but the stretch woven shell and a thin sheet of synthetic insulation mean it's also worthy of taking to the mountains.
Patagonia Re-Tool Snap T Pullover ($71; 40 percent off)
A warm, chic fleece, the Re-Tool's stand-up collar doubles down on defense against nippy winds, a roomy cut provides a comfortable, not too tight fit, and a kangaroo-inspired pocket offers respite for cold hands. But mostly it's just super cozy.
Marmot Sawtooth 15 Degree Sleeping Bag ($179; 25 percent off)
A durable sleeping bag built for staying comfy on chilly nights, the Sawtooth is stuffed with 650-fill down that is lightweight, compressible, and insulating. Large baffles, a draft collar, and internal stash pocket for keeping headlamps nearby make it a great choice for three-season camping and backpacking.
Patagonia Men's Nano-Air Insulated Hooded Jacket ($194; 35 percent off)
The Nano-Air set the standard for insulation for aerobic ascents in the alpine. Its stretchy shell offers mobility while climbing and hiking and the DWR finish repels light precipitation from mist and snow. Although it's a few seasons old now (hence the sale) this is one of the best insulating layers ever made.
The North Face Women's Stretch Thermoball Jacket ($121; 45 percent off)
A midweight jacket with all-weather warmth, the Stretch Thermoball is refined enough to wear around town, while the athletic cut, compressibility (it packs into one of the pockets), and synthetic insulation mean you can take it on a hike or ski tour too.
Mountain Hardwear Women's Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket ($210; 40 percent off)
If you're looking for something a little more technical than the Thermoball jacket (above), the Ghost Whisperer is one of the best options available. You'll need to treat it with care as the 10-denier outer fabric isn't super burly, but it's warm, lightweight, and stuffed with high quality 800 fill down.
Kavu Rope Bag Purse ($35; 30 percent off)
This unique bag sits somewhere between a daypack, purse, and messenger bag. The rope shoulder strap give it a unique look, while two vertical zip pockets grant easy access to small essentials.
