Winter chill can mean many things to many people. To a camper in Southern California, it can mean overnight lows in the 50s. To a climber in Maine, it can mean charging through snow drifts all day like a locomotive.
Our gear gift guide accounts for all of the winter conditions the outdoors-loving person in your life could encounter. With some of these cold-weather keepers, they can go out and enjoy the breathtaking snowy scenery and gobble up the uncrowded trails. Some of our picks can even be used year-round.
