COM­FORT AND COOL TAKE PRECE­DENCE WHEN YOU’RE BEL­LIED UP.

1 PALLABROUSE / PAL­LA­DIUM EX­PLORER The Ex­plorer doesn’t of­fer muk­luk­cal­iber pro­tec­tion from the el­e­ments, but it will deal with most ski-life mi­lieux—slushy tail­gates, snowy camp­fires, and base-area dance floors—and look rad do­ing so.

2 / REC­OL­LECT THREADS

KEEP CALM AND SKI POW HEAD­BAND Truer words were never spo­ken. That’s rea­son aplenty to rock this retro-look­ing ear warmer. [$23; rec­ol­lect­threads.com]

3 / AION

INDO HOODED SWEATER Wo­ven like a sweater but sport­ing a hood, the Indo is ridicu­lously soft and com­fort­able. It chan­nels Jack­son-based Aion’s moun­tain roots but adds a lit­tle is­land flair. It’s sus­tain­ably made in Bali with­out sweat­shop la­bor—so you can feel good about it and have a talk­ing point when field­ing com­pli­ments from fetch­ing ski bunnies.

4 / FJÄLLRÄVEN

ÖVIK TROUSERS The wa­ter- and wind-resistant Övik Trousers use a fab­ric de­vel­oped in the 1960s for Green­land ex­pe­di­tions. They’ll re­pel mud from the park­ing lot and spilled beer at the bar. If you want to get re­ally ex­treme, you can melt a spe­cial wax into the fab­ric us­ing an iron, hair dryer, or camp stove for in­creased dura­bil­ity and weather pro­tec­tion.

5 / NAU

DOWN SHIRT Port­land-based Nau makes out­door-in­flu­enced ur­ban­wear. This cozy Down Shirt is packed with 850-fill down. Its snap clo­sures, di­ag­o­nal pat­tern­ing, and high col­lar give it a re­fined look, while a lifetime war­ranty and Nau’s earth-friendly business prac­tices will make you feel more than phys­i­cally warm and fuzzy.
