The best new clothing items are built for the #5to9 life: dawn patrol skiing at 5am, and arrive at the office by 9am. The workplace is becoming more casual. So instead of buying suits and ties, it's a lot more practical to invest in high quality outerwear that can transition to multiple uses.
From freeride-brands like Flylow, to shells by Black Diamond, to puffies by Discrete, both men's and women's jacket have options that can serve you for a deep and cold day, or a sunny spring corn session.
Black Diamond out-shines themselves again with the next generation of touring shells for extreme alpine touring. Built to keep you warm from snow, ice, and wind, the Helio features 3 layers of Gore-Tex®Active technology and a knit backer to beat the typical crunch and stiffness felt in typical Gore-Tex® apparel.
Bibs, when built right, are a complete win. No cold drafts when you bend over, super flexible as you move, and no hitching your waist up repeatedly. But for you standard-pant guys and gals, we have some great options there, too.
