Leatherman Wave Plus Multitool ($80; 20 percent off)
The winner of our multitool review a few years ago, the Wave boasts an all-metal design and 18 tools that lock in place.
NRS Vibe Watershoe ($56; 25 percent off)
Our tester loved the Vibe because it has drainage ports and a nonabsorbent footbed but doesn’t look like a traditional dorky water shoe.
Patagonia Men’s R1 Hoodie ($111; 30 percent off)
This popular fleece is our editor’s go-to fall running layers for its tight-fitting cut and sweat-wicking gridded fleece.
Oboz Bridger 7-Inch Insulated BDry Boot ($139; 25 percent off)
In our 2018 Winter Buyer’s Guide, our tester challenged any reader to wear through the burly nubuck leather of this winter boot.
Outdoor Research Stormtracker Sensor Gloves ($56; 25 percent off)
The Stormtracker made our list of best budget ski gloves, thanks in part to the streamlined design, which offers excellent dexterity.
Nemo Helio Shower ($75; 25 percent off)
Way back in 2012, we called the Helio one of the best car camping accessories. We stand by that claim, as numerous Outside editors still use it today.
Patagonia Men’s Performance Better Sweater Hoodie ($111; 30 percent off)
This hoodie inspired an entire hoodie review in last year’s Summer Buyer’s Guide.
Arc’teryx Beta SL Hybrid Jacket ($280; 30 percent off)
We consider this jacket to be one of the best lightweight rain jackets on the market.
Patagonia 3-in-1 Snowshot Jacket ($279; 30 percent off)
When it was first released, in 2010, we called the Snowshot “one of the least expensive jackets in our test but also a tester favorite.”
Brooks Threshold Pants ($63; 30 percent off)
If you need simple, functional running pants, look no further than the Threshold, which we featured in our 2018 Winter Buyer’s Guide.
Smith Squad XL Goggles ($104; 20 percent off)
We called the Squad XL, a favorite from this year’s Buyer’s Guide, perfect for “larger faces and smaller wallets.”
Smartwool PhD Ultra Light Ski Socks ($17; 25 percent off)
Without question, these are among our favorite ski socks. They’re warm, thin, and good-looking, and at $17, the price is right.
Smith Vantage MIPS Helmet ($208; 20 percent off)
The Vantage was the favorite helmet we tested last year for its low-profile design and two-part venting system.
Pieps Micro Avalanche Beacon ($312; 20 percent off)
Don’t skimp on your avy beacon. This one made it into our 2017 Winter Buyer’s Guide for its intuitive usability and range.
Osprey Kamber 32 Ski Pack ($126; 25 percent off)
The Kamber nails the details, like carefully positioned pockets that can be opened even when you have a snowboard or skis strapped to the pack’s sides.
Patagonia Fjord Flannel ($89; 30 percent off)
Our Gear Guy called this “maybe the world’s best flannel.”
MSR Lightning Ascent Snowshoes ($232; 20 percent off)
We consider these the best snowshoes for moving fast through ice conditions.
Prana Stretch Zion Pants ($62; 30 percent off)
The double layer of material on the knee make these quick-drying and stretchy nylon pants a favorite of the climbers in our office.
