When warmth is at a premium, nothing beats the feeling of being swaddled in lofty insulation.
Penfield Pelam Jacket
What do they say about retro? It never goes out of style. That's certainly the case with the Pelam. The large baffles and muted colors are very early seventies, and the leather accents protect against rubbing shoulder straps.
Montbell Superior Down Pants
Okay, down pants may not be stylish, but after a cold winter surf session or day on the slopes, they’re hard to beat. These from Montbell are compressible enough to keep in a winter camping pack, but lofted and cozy for sitting by the fireplace with cocoa.
66 Degrees North Kjolur Shacket
We live in the age of the shacket. This one, made by Icelandic company 66 Degrees North and filled with German goose-down, is as practical as it is classy.
Nobis The Ricky Bobby Vest
Military inspired—with leather shoulders, hand warmer pockets, and a high collar to stave off the cold—the Ricky Bobby (yes, as in Talladega Nights) is the vest you want for the arctic chill of New York City mornings or Moscow nights.
Rab Zero G Jacket
We’ll admit, it looks a bit space age-y, but this mountaineering inspired parka is so warm, we also don't care. If your goal is saving weight, it passes the test, but the fabric is durable enough for mixed ice and snow conditions on hard alpine routes. The 1000-fill down is also responsibility sourced.
The North Face Thermoball Traction Mule II Slipper
Capitalizing on the every popular ThermoBall jacket, The North Face has finally released a baffled, puffy slipper with the same technology, so your toes can feel toasty all winter long.
Marmot 8000 Meter Mitt
We pity you if you're ever in conditions cold enough to merit wearing these 700-fill goose down mittens. But let's face it, you're probably also doing something rad. On top of being exceptionally warm, the 8000 Meters also come with a waterproof Gore-Tex shell.
