Flylow Betty Down Hoodie 

Post-workout, throw on the 800-fill Betty. It’s treated with DownTek and DWR, so you can move straight to après beers in the parking lot.

Skida Nordic Headband

Headbands pull double duty in winter. They wick sweat when you’re working hard and keep you toasty when temps drop. The flashy prints on Skida’s poly-spandex are just a bonus.

Woolx Ella Tank

This 160-gram ultra-wicking merino base layer is as plush as it gets. Pull it on as you roll out of bed and you might not even notice you’ve left. And because wool repels odor, we could wear it all week without a wash.

Native Eyewear Penrose Sunglasses

Not all lenses are created equal. The slim Penrose features Native’s N3’s, which block four times more infrared light than standard polarized ­lenses and are highly impact-resistant. Biathlon, anyone?

Swix Banner Gloves

For high-sweat pursuits like nordic skiing, you want low-bulk warmth. This wind- and water-­resistant soft-shell glove gets it right, with six ounces of Thinsulate insulation packed into a slim profile.

Halti Vimma Hoodie

Thanks to a cozy poly blend, the Vimma wicks sweat better than any other midlayer we’ve worn, making it ideal to wear under a shell while alpine skiing.

Dynafit Mercury Pants

At heart, the wind- and water-resistant Mercurys are stretchy ski-­mountaineering pants. But a plethora of features (an adjustable waist, side vents, snow gaiters, and ankle zips) that add breathability and improve fit mean they’re also happy snowshoeing and nordic skiing.
