Fjällräven Bergtagen Trousers ($350)

Fjällräven has long been famous in Scandinavia for its fjellbukser, or moun­taineering pants, but the Berg­tagens are useful in more than just the high alpine. They’re hard-wearing and lightweight, with reinforced knees and ankles. Pair them with long under­wear and unzip the vented seams when you break a sweat.

Wolfsong Hybrid Jacket ($449)

This wool-bodied jacket is a cult favorite among long-distance dogsledders for good reason: it’s light, strong, breathable, and startlingly warm, with flexible nylon sleeves and an optional (ethically sourced) fur ruff. If it can hold up to getting dragged behind a dogsled year after year, it’ll shrug aside anything you throw at it.
