Stoic Shell Pant
$59.98 (60% off, was $149.95)
A solid shell snow pant is a necessity for any winter enthusiast. Staying dry is imperative, but as important as staying dry is not overheating while skinning uphill or swinging ice tools. These shell pants from Stoic have a two layer membrane for waterproofing, a cut that allows for baselayers, and ankle gaiters for a snug fit around the boot. And for only $60? You really can’t beat it.
Spyder Jagged GTX Jacket
$420 (30% off, was $600)
The Jagged GTX is a shell from Spyder that is ideal for both backcountry and resort skiing alike. The Gore-Tex membrane repels water yet stays breathable, and the AquaGaurd zippers help keep moisture out as well. It has a helmet compatible hood, a snap in powder skirt, and even features Recco reflector technology for some peace of mind in the backcountry.
Patagonia Ascensionist GTX Jacket
$324.35 (35% off, was $499)
The Ascensionist GTX Jacket is designed for less-than-fair-weather mountain pursuits. It weighs just 11.4oz, but its Gore-Tex membrane enhanced with a C-Knit backer sheds moisture and remains supple. It is harness and helmet compatible, and the underarm vents easily dump excess heat.
Backcountry Lomond Baselayer Crew
$29.97 (40% off, was $49.95)
The Lomond Baselayer from Backcountry is a great companion for cold weather play, be it a chilly day at the crag or a blizzard at the ski resort. The polyester blend holds warmth and wicks moisture like a champ, while its stretch construction moves freely with the body.
Backcountry Lomond Baselayer Bottom
$29.97 (40% off, was $49.95)
Match your new Lomond Baselayer Crew with the Lomond Baselayer Bottoms. Made of the same highly functional polyester blend described above, Backcountry describes these as: “Technical leggings for workouts, winter sports, and more.”
Mountain Hardwear Super DS Stretchdown Jacket
$174.96 (30% off, was $249.99)
This 700-fill down jacket is designed to be a midlayer on alpine excursions. It weighs less than a pound and fits snugly under your outer shell, while also packing a punch in terms of heat retention. The stretch woven body provides unrestricted movement, ensuring full range of motion while climbing or skiing.
Columbia Last Tracks Glove
$31.99 (20% off, was $39.99)
The Last Tracks Glove from Columia is a classic style winter glove good for any casual purpose, from the ski hill to shoveling the driveway to walking the dog. It has a polyester midweight insulation, and features a touchscreen compatible thumb and finger.
Backcountry Gore-Tex Snow Glove
$79.96 (20% off, was $99.95)
The Gore-Tex Snow Glove is a much burlier and more technical alternative to that listed above. It’s made of a durable and long lasting goatskin leather with Primaloft insulation and a waterproof Gore-Tex membrane. These gloves are seriously badass and can handle whatever nasty weather is thrown at them.
