The Elevation Outdoors Winter Gift Guide for Him and Her

For Him

1.MSR Beta Snow Science Saw

Giving a man a tool as a gift never goes out of style. One section of this avy safety saw is made for slicing into snow to build avalanche pits, shelters, etc.; the other will do what a saw does best—cut through wood. $50; msrgear.com

2.Westcomb Subzero Parka

We have all the technical jackets we need, but you don’t exactly like heading out for a night on the town with us looking like we are about to skin laps at Berthoud Pass. This stylish parka can do the town but it’s also stuffed with Primaloft’s Gold insulation, a blend of down and synthetic, as well as Schoeller NanoSphere technology on the shell to shuck off the elements. $550; westcomb.com

3. Deerhammer Downtime

The whiskey crisis is for real: Brown liquor is going to be in short supply (and pricey). But that is a good thing for people like Lenny Eckstein of Deerhammer in Salida. The first-class craft distiller is in positon to ramp up production to meet that growing demand. For now, one of these coveted bottles will fit quite nicely into our stocking. $48; deerhammer.com

4.Tenkara usa rhodo set

The great thing about tenkara, an easy-to-learn Japanese style of fly fishing that uses a telescoping rod and requires no reel, is that both guys who don’t fish much, and fly-fishing freaks enjoy it. Keep the rod in a pack, then pull it out for some casual casting. This package gives you everything you need to get started. $265; tenkarausa.com    

5.Acoustic Research Lighthouse Outdoor Wireless Speaker

Hey, it looks like a lighthouse and it’s nigh indestructible. It’s the perfect Bluetooth speaker for guys like us who like to work and recreate in the yard, the garage, the tailgate, even the ski area parking lot. The weather-resistant speaker pumps out rich sound and runs on AA batteries or AC power. $80; acousticresearch.com

6.Prana Gomez Corduroy Shirt Jacket

Is it a jacket? Is it a shirt? In these days of lumbersexual fashion, who cares? This shaket is damn comfortable and its good for everything from microbrew sessions to The War on Drugs shows to working on the car. Lumbersexual? Seriously? We call it the same stuff mountain dudes like us have been wearing for years. $129; prana.com

7. Avex HIGHLAND Travel Mug

Not only will this baby hold hot and cold beverages (hint: fill up past security while you are waiting before that long plane flight) it also will not spill thanks to a thumb-activated open/close that’s easy to operate on the go. $25; avexsport.com

8.Thunderbolt Jeans

First, these are not “dad jeans.” But they do have a nice, comfy fit that silly hipster skinny jeans can’t offer. Made from stretchy Schoeller soft shell, they can deal with a little bouldering session or a hike with the pooch followed directly by a night out. $188; thunderboltsportswear.com

9.RuffWear Approach Pack

You know when you got us, you got him, too. And you know you like when he licks your face (maybe not when we do that). This pack carries all we need to keep our pup fed and happy on everything from backcountry ski jaunts to desert backpacking trips. $80; ruffwear.com

The Best Commuter Pants for Cyclists - Men's Journal

March 29, 2017

These are your go-to commuter pants during cold, tough weather. Rugged Schoeller Dryskin soft-shell fabric comes with sleet-slaying NanoSphere treatment. Built for unapologetic protection and free-spinning knees, the rest of the pant delivers no-frills waist closure, a zipped fly, and patch pockets, along with one zipped rear pocket. But the big sell here is that the jeans are far warmer than most. You'll be laughing in the face of major downpours, Westerlies, and splash-inducing traffic.

Thunderbolt Sportswear jeans

For active travel in cool climates Thunderbolt jeans are an excellent choice. Despite the ‘jeans’ tag, they’re not denim, but a technical fabric which is wind-resistant, water-resistant and dirt-resistant on the outside while comfortable on the inside thanks to its soft lining and four-way stretch. So you can wear them all day, sightseeing in the city or hiking in the hills, and they still look good when you go to a bar in the evening.

  • Plus points: durable, comfortable, weather-resistant; male's sizes only
  • Worth noting: one rear pocket has a hidden security zip, useful to guard against pickpockets
  • Cost: $200
  • Rating: quality 9/10; practicality 9/10; value 8/10
