Everyday Essentials

Some pieces of gear should never be left behind.

Curated by The Outbound Collective

Every adventure is different and requires certain clothes and gear, but in our experience, there are a few things that we never regret throwing in the back of the car before heading out. You never know what kind of unexpected detours or impromptu stops you'll make along the way. Whether we're going for long road trip or just out for a quick hike, here are some of the products we never leave home without.

You can trust the toughness of cow hide and the comfort and warmth of the wool terry lining in the Wakayama. Make this pair of gloves your everyday workhorse all winter long.

There's nothing liking slipping on your comfy shoes after a long day on the slopes or romping around in snowshoes. Keep these in the car for immediate comfort after every winter adventure. Plus, they're good looking enough to wear out for a bite and a beer afterwards.

Your baselayer is the first ingredient to staying warm outdoors during the winter and the merino 250 is Smartwool's warmest weight offering. Not to worry, they're also temperature regulating to ensure you don't overheat when you're being more active.

Stainless steel, vacuum insulated, stylish enough for the office, durable enough for travel. What more could you ask for?

Need a new pair of go-to pants to get you through the winter? Volcom's durable denim pants can take just about anything you throw at them and look good while they do it.

Gregory took the heavy-duty capabilities of their backcountry packs and applied them to an everyday carry. With the durable tarpaulin fabric and padded laptop sleeve, the Pierpont keeps everything you need safe and secure, rain or shine.

The Sony a6300 proves that you don't have to sacrifice quality for a smaller, mirrorless camera. Throw it in your pocket for skiing, hiking, or even a night out on the town - the lowlight capabilities are amazing.

This thing is just as ready for waist-deep powder days as it is for daily commutes when it's dumping in town. Wherever you are, if it's dropping down to the single digits, reach for the Flylow Colt Down Jacket.
