Helly Hansen Women’s HH Warm Pant

Helly Hansen Women’s HH Warm Pant

People say that boots are the most important piece of ski gear, but I would put it out there that a good set of baselayers can also make for a better day out on the slopes. The Helly Hansen Women’s HH Warm Flow High Neck ½ Zip Top and HH Warm Bottoms are that magic [...]

Keen Revel II Boot

Keen Revel II Boot

The Keen Revel II winter hiking boots made life thoroughly enjoyable this holiday season, which I spent traipsing through Norway’s west coast. Every day I wandered through a mix of rain, deep puddles, fields of ice, and deep snow, and the Revel II boots kept my feet surprisingly happy. (Available in men’s and women’s styles.) [...]

It goes beyond the typical winter hat in looks and function, and has been ideal for keeping my head warm during the sedentary moments of cold-weather outdoor play – when staying warm means the difference between being able [...]

Patagonia Women’s Low Sky Parka

Patagonia Women’s Low Sky Parka

I’ve never been a long parka kinda gal, but Patagonia’s Low Sky Parka is the exception to my rule. It’s different from other puffy-style long coats I’ve seen because it’s not puffy and it actually has some shape to it.  The Patagonia’s Low Sky Parka fits well in the shoulders, and tapers in at the waist [...]
