New-Winter-Gear

With winter fast approaching, we decided to take some time to reflect on the latest releases. This season is all about coziness. Home goods geared to keep you warm and toasty. Clothing to brave the frigid conditions. Beverages to enjoy beside that blazing fire. While things tend to slow down in the later months of the year, we’re still seeing dozens of releases from some of our favorite brands. From the latest in tech, fashion, EDC, and more, we’ve rounded up the new gear we’re excited about in the winter of 2021. Whether you’re hunting for the best winter apparel or need to find the perfect gift, we’ve got you covered.

PrAna-Novad-Path-Jacket

PrAna Novad Path Jacket

We recently covered the ultra-warm Novad Path Jacket from prAna in our roundup of the best winter jackets but we figured we’d give it another shoutout here. The high-fill Responsible Down Standard certified insulation will keep you warm and fuzzy on your early morning commute. But the simple silhouette means you won’t look like a little kid waiting for the school bus. It’s a smart puffer jacket that can reliably keep the elements at bay this winter.

New-Balance-5740-Light-Cliff-Grey

New Balance 57/40 Light Cliff Grey

Some might forgo sneakers entirely during the winter months for more sensible boots. But, we’ve long relied on New Balance for their stellar year-round options. The classic 57/40 gets a winter colorway upgrade in this Light Cliff Grey base with bright pops of color. Paired with neutral pants and a white top will make for a stylish fit.

$110
Kitchen-Timer-by-Dusen-Dusen

Kitchen Timer by Dusen Dusen

Dusen Dusen makes some of our favorite home goods and accessories. With whimsical patterns and bright pops of color, just about anything from this studio is sure to be a statement piece in your home. We’re loving the recently released Kitchen Timer. Put down that iPhone, don’t bother with the cumbersome oven settings, and just set this timer on the counter. Whether you’re whipping up a three-course meal or just need to keep track of your baked goods, this kitchen timer is sure to come in handy.

$50
Adapture-Standard-Fit-Long-Sleeve-White

Adapture Standard Fit Long Sleeve White

We featured Adapture earlier this year after thoroughly enjoying their simple, elegant plain white t-shirts. Well, it’s wintertime and we need some sleeves. The Adapture long sleeve tee shirt is just what the doctor ordered. Wear it on its own or layer with a sweater or flannel. The shirt itself, made from a blend of cotton and polyester, is soft and comfortable but thanks to its moisture-wicking you’ll stay cool and comfortable even beside a roaring fire.

$58
Tiny-Kitchen-Candle-Co-Sap-and-Citrus-Candle

Tiny Kitchen Candle Co. Sap and Citrus Candle

Need to add a little holiday cheer to your home? A simple yet effective solution is usually a well-placed candle. This Sap and Citrus one from Tiny Kitchen Candle Co. is sure to put you in the winter mood. You’ll find a pleasant, woodsy blend of balsam, cypress, oakmoss, orange, and bergamot. Light this in your living room or kitchen and enjoy the coziness of home.

Even if you’re not a “beanie guy,” everyone needs a winter hat. And this Acrylic Watch Cap from trusted outdoor brand Filson works a treat. With its cuffed design, quick-drying construction, and itch-free material, you’ll stay warm, dry, and comfortable. Plus the bright colors add a pop to an otherwise neutral or drab outfit. Brave the outdoors in style with this beanie.

NordicTrack-T-Series-Treadmill

NordicTrack T Series Treadmill

For fitness enthusiasts, the cold weather can be a punishing time. Particularly if you don’t have the space to fashion yourself a proper workout area. Thankfully, we’ve rounded up some great workout gear for small spaces and this foldable treadmill from NordicTrack is one of our favorites. It doesn’t have all the high-tech functions that the one in your gym might, but it certainly does the trick for a quick, steady cardio workout.

$649
Buck-Mason-Donegal-Cable-Crew

Buck Mason Donegal Cable Crew

In case you hadn’t heard, cable knit crewneck sweaters are in. And it’s probably Chris Evans’ fault.

Snow-Peak-Pendleton-Icon-Blanket

Snow Peak x Pendleton Icon Blanket

Like we said up top, ’tis the season for coziness. Snow Peak and Pendleton collaborated on an eye-catching winter blanket.

Todd-Snyder-Slim-Fit-Italian-Corduroy-Pant

Todd Snyder Slim Fit Italian Corduroy Pant

The winter season is the ideal time to break out your favorite corduroy pants. Dressy enough to work in the office but cozy enough to feel like a soft pair of sweats, corduroys are the unsung heroes of menswear. We’re loving this slim-fit pair from Todd Snyder for the cold weather. The slim fit Italian corduroy pants are available in eight colors but we’re partial to this dark olive for a stunning winter outfit.

$168
Holden-Puffy-Slip-On

Holden Puffy Slip On

Embrace your nordic side with these cozy, puffy, slightly silly slippers. On the inside, these slip-ons from Holden Outerwear offer a knit upper, comfortable footbed, and PrimaLoft® Eco recycled insulation.

$130
Five-Trail-Whiskey

Five Trail Whiskey

Warm up on a cold winter’s night with some quality whiskey. While you might know Coors for their cheap beers, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to meet their newly released, mid-tier Five Trail Whiskey. Priced at $60, Five Trail is accessible but it offers a much more balanced, subtle flavor profile than the price tag would suggest. It’s perfect for this winter season and is sure to impress at your next dinner party.

$60
