Woolrich-Yankee-Boot-Gear-Patrol Woolrich Yankee Boot
It’s not often that both comfort and function can be found in a tough, durable boot. Woolrich’s Yankee industrial boot not only combines comfort and function, it also throws a healthy amount of style into the mix. The Yankee is 100 percent made in the USA with Talon zippers, Vibram soles, Horween leather and Woolrich’s patented form-fitting Comfort Footbeds — like an all-star team of leather, wool and zippers got together just for your feet. $325
Rumpl-Standard-Blanket-Case-Gear-Patrol Rumpl Down Puffy
Those puffy down jackets are always pretty damn comfy. But “social norms” dictate that you can’t wear them all the time, or even to bed. Ridiculous — that’s why Rumpl found a way around that by making a blanket of the puffy-down good stuff. The versatile synthetic insulation is machine washable, perfect for when you’re on the couch, in bed or under the stars. $95
Under-Armour-Fat-Tire-GTX-Shoe-Gear-Patrol Under Armour Fat Tire GTX Shoe
Mountain bike tires offer some of the best grip for all kinds of terrain. So it only stands to reason that you get the same kind of performance when you’re hoofing it and not pedaling your way through trails. Under Armour’s Fat Tire GTX was inspired by just that. Under Armour collaborated with Michelin, using their Wild Gripper outsole and a Gore-Tex waterproof membrane for a hiking boot with a mountain bike-like grip. $200
Icebreaker-One-Sheep-Suit-Gear-Patrol Icebreaker One Sheep Suit
When suiting up to battle the elements, the final layer count can get out of hand. The Zone One Sheep Suit is a form-fitting one-piece base layer suit made with new Icebreaker BodyfitZONE™ technology, merino wool and LYCRA. It offers performance and mobility while keeping you warm and dry on alpine adventures. $200
Tecnica-Cochise-Boots-Gear-Patrol Tecnica Cochise Collection
To get maximum performance and confidence out of your ski boots, they need to fit comfortably. But the problem with most ski boots is they’re built to fit everybody. And barring custom-made boots, an absolute perfect fit is hard to find. Technica’s Cochise collection utilizes a Custom Adaptive Shape liner that was built with key foot and ankle bone shapes in mind for an ergonomic fit. The anatomically accurate shape translates to better power transmission and performance right out of the box. $720+
FlameStower-Candle-Charger-Gear-Patrol FlameStower Candle Charger
Fire and shelter are two pretty important things to have when you’re out in the wilderness. With the FlameStower Candle Charger, you can add electricity to the list of essential luxuries. Once a fire is started the FlameStower uses the heat the fire generates and turns it into electricity for you to charge your phone, camera, flashlight, or any other electronic gadget. No more worrying about a dead battery ruining a breathtaking photo or interrupting a life-saving phone call. $75
Sweet-Protection-Grimnir-Helmet-Gear-Patrol Sweet Protection Grimnir Helmet
Carbon fiber isn’t just for building high-performance race cars any more. Sweet Protection went and built the Grimnir MIPS, the most advanced snowboarding helmet ever made. While utilizing the high-strength and lightweight properties of carbon fiber, the outer shell also features hidden inserts to easily mount GoPro cameras. $451
