PATAG­O­NIA PER­FOR­MANCE STRAIGHT FIT $119

Made of 71 per­cent cot­ton and 29 per­cent Cool­max—a polyester, stretchy denim—the Per­for­mance pant is easy to move in and has a DWR fin­ish for more pro­tec­tion against win­ter.

DU/ER STRAIGHT AND NAR­ROW $119

Th­ese jeans , made with tem­per­a­ture-reg­u­lat­ing Cool­max denim, have enough stretch to hike in the woods or layer over a pair of long un­der­wear, with a cut that will make them your new fa­vorite pair.

PRANA LON­DON JEAN $99

A clas­sic skinny jean made with or­ganic cot­ton and a medium stretch that re­tains its shape af­ter mul­ti­ple wears. Avail­able in mul­ti­ple in­seams.

LEVI’S 501 $119

Noth­ing techy or fancy here—just 100 per­cent cot­ton in a clas­sic, trust­wor­thy pack­age.

DANNER VERTIGO 917 $220

With a lit­tle style as well as Vi­bram soles and a Gore-tex lin­ing, this is a great hy­brid op­tion for some­one who lives in the city and wants a shoe they can wear ev­ery day, in­clud­ing through their week­end mis­sions.

FORSAKE PATCH BOOTS $150

Molded EVA soles, a wa­ter­proof/ breath­able mem­brane, taped seams, anti-mi­cro­bial footbed, and mois­turewick­ing lin­ing check all the boxes for a pair of win­ter boots to wear ev­ery day. But un­like oth­ers, the Patch are not clunky. Their pro­file looks more like a pair of sneak­ers.

THE NORTH FACE BALLARD LACE II BOOTS $120

A wa­ter­proof leather boot with great grip on ice and rocky trails thanks to tem­per­a­ture-sen­si­tive rub­ber lugs in the sole, the com­fort­able Ballard feels bro­ken-in af­ter the first wear.

HELLY HANSEN ULLR TRAN­SI­TION HT $175

With 400 grams of Pri­maloft in­su­la­tion, this shoe/boot hy­brid keeps your feet warm while a wa­ter­proof Hel­lyTech mem­brane makes sure you don’t get wet tromp­ing through the slush. A zip on the side makes them easy on/easy off.
