Eddie Bauer Men’s Seabeck Down Parka ($279)
Appurtenances such as 650-fill down, a rugged cotton-nylon exterior, and an adjustable hood mean you’ll be toasty even on the iciest days in the Seabeck. (M–XXXL in regular and tall)
Hestra Windstopper Tour Mitts ($75)
Hestra equipped this mitt with a goatskin palm, a windproof liner, and breathable fleece on the back. Expect it to become your go-to glove for snowball fights.
Northern Toboggan Co. Classic Sled ($595)
Northern’s Classic sled is big enough for a family of three to bomb a hill together. But high-quality materials—red oakwood frame, stainless-steel hardware—and an additional pad ($80) make it stand out.
Glenfiddich Grand Cru Whisky ($300)
This single malt was matured in American and European casks for 23 years. The delightful result is layered with vanilla, oak, and a sweet sandalwood.
Dermatone Outdoor Protection Kit ($29)
On top of offering a range of SPF protection in its sunscreen, Dermatone’s lip balms and face salves are great at preventing wind chap. All are included here.
Fjällräven Keb Pants ($225)
These trousers are a tester favorite for cold-weather adventures, with reinforcement in the seat, at the knees, and in the pockets. They’re not at all stiff: a touch of elastane in key spots provides flex. (Men’s 42–60; women’s 32–48)
Vans UltraRange Exo Hi Gore-Tex MTE-3 Boots ($200)
These boots are stacked with winter-friendly features like Gore-Tex waterproofing, Thinsulate insulation, and a sticky rubber outsole. The best part? They retain the styling of the low-tech skate shoes everyone loves.
Filson 1970s Logger Thermal Socks ($32)
Woven thick with 80 percent wool, these socks will keep your tootsies warm in your boots, even while postholing.
Patagonia AlpLight Down Pullover ($249)
Supremely light (7.9 ounces) and enhanced with ample 800-fill loft and a low collar, the AlpLight immediately became testers’ favorite midlayer. An internal chest pocket serves as a stuffsack. (XS–XXL)
