Arc’teryx Kole Down Pullover ($240)
Despite its streetwear style, this layer moves like technical mountain apparel. Stretchy wool and polyester side panels make this possible, and a waffle grid distributes 750-fill down elsewhere. (S–XXL)
Roka Booker Glasses ($250)
Roka married lightweight nylon and titanium to build prescription performance frames that testers didn’t need to take off during their hardest HIIT workouts.
Oris Big Crown Pointer Date Watch ($2,100)
With its scratch- and shatter-resistant sapphire crystal, this stainless-steel beauty will last generations. Testers loved the precise automatic movement and elegant date display.
ATG by Wrangler™ Men’s Classic Puffer Jacket ($100)
This classic men’s puffer jacket is the perfect layer for cold-weather activities, while also allowing you to show off your personal style. Plus it’s corn-based insulation is kind on the planet, it’s a winter win-win.
Outerknown Summit Puffer Vest ($158)
We love the retro qualities of the Summit Puffer. But the reason everyone should have a 700-fill, responsibly sourced down vest like this in their closet is for the versatility. (S–XXL)
Tracksmith New England Shirt ($198)
The recycled wool, cotton, and nylon blend of this shacket yields a respectable running piece. But the real trick is the muted look, which makes it a choice candidate for an evening out, too. (XS–XL)
Darn Tough VanGrizzle Boot Midweight Socks ($26)
The seam-free merino-blend VanGrizzles are strong enough to be the only socks you need for a thousand brutal miles of hiking, yet they’re still soft and handsome.
Patagonia Organic Cotton Jeans ($119)
Patagonia uses an indigo foam-dyeing process that requires 79 percent less water and produces 25 percent fewer carbon emissions than its previous methods, so these timelessly styled, straight-leg dungarees are its most environmentally responsible yet. (28–44)
Finch Cimarron Knife ($89)
A smooth flipping mechanism, grippy composite handle, and striking blade crafted from edge-holding stainless chromium steel make the Cimarron a smart gift for someone who prioritizes function alongside fashion.
