RADIAN TRAVEL PACK Yes, you’ll look a bit like you’ve raided Batman’s gear locker when you shrug into Mission Workshop’s Radian Travel Pack ( BELOW), but the Caped Crusader himself couldn’t pass up this four-season 42-litre bag. Not only is it lightweigh­t, rugged and weatherpro­of, but it can also be used suitcase-style once you conceal the shoulder straps behind a hidden zippered panel. missionwor­kshop.com

WESTCOMB This Vancouver-based apparel company uses a centralize­d design-to-production model to craft its top-notch technical (yet still stylish) outdoor gear ( RIGHT), a method that allows for a minimal carbon footprint. Everything from insulated outerwear to longsleeve­d base layers is designed, manufactur­ed and warehoused in Vancouver. westcomb.com

CHIPS 2.0 BLUETOOTH HELMET SPEAKERS Skiers and snowboarde­rs who like a few tunes while they’re carving fresh powder no longer need fumble in their pocket to operate their phone. Instead, they can pop a pair of Outdoor Tech’s headphones into their helmet and press — without removing their mitts! — two built-in oversized buttons to do everything from change tracks, make a phone call and activate the walkie-talkie feature for group conversati­ons. outdoortec­hnology.com
