From jackets, to walkie talkies, to some of the most iconic winter boots money can buy.
For outdoor gear enthusiasts, few online retailers hold the cache that Backcountry does. The Utah-based brand has everything you need for virtually every outdoor activity — from ice climbing, to cycling, to running, to camping, to kayaking (and loads more). Whether you're shopping for someone special on you holiday gift list this year or treating yourself to a gear closet upgrade, Backcountry has something for everyone. Below we've highlighted a few of the standout items worth adding to your cart.
In the backcountry, staying connected with the rest of your crew is of utmost importance. Of course, when traveling in avalanche country the use case for a radio needs no explanation. But even if you aren't, they come in handy when you know, you want to get a better shot on the GoPro.
POC helmets are a staff favorite, and the Obex Spin offers the perfect combination of safety and style for your ski and snowboard adventures. At its core is POC's Spin technology, which reduces the rotational forces in a crash that can cause concussions.
Everything you need and nothing you don't. The ELEMNT BOLT is an easy-to-use bike computer that allows you to add GPS routes for navigation as well as tracking your rides so you can rehash your exploits over beers with your friends.
Simply put, the Dine-O-Max is the ultimate in camp kitchen luxury. It's got two bamboo countertops sized for stoves and prepping stations, a trash bag holder and waterproof cubbies for storage — all of which folds down and stores small for easy transportation.
The Atom LT is another Gear Patrol staff favorite. It's the ultimate versatile winter jacket packed with synthetic insulation. It's remarkably breathable, highly water-resistant and stretchy — which makes it a shoe-in for your new favorite jacket, too.
If ever there was a classic winter boot, it's the Sorel Caribou. The boot is absolutely iconic, and features a waterproof leather upper, a removable felt liner with Sherpa Pile snow cuff and an AeroTrac sole that grips to icy and snowy surfaces. If that isn't enough to convince you, Sorel rates this boot down to -40 degrees.
The name YETI needs no introduction. The brand is synonymous with durable and insanely insulated coolers — both of which are descriptors that apply directly to the Roadie 24. It's got everything you'd expect from a YETI, plus a flexible HeftyHauler handle for easy transport.
The functionality of a dry bag cannot be understated. Whether you're going on a river trip, hauling laundry to the laundromat, or packing up your truck and strapping your gear to the roof, a solid dry bag will (as its name implies) keep your gear nice and dry.
After a hard workout or a long day on the mountain, few things feel better than a percussive massage. Therabody's Theragun Elite is the top of the line when it comes to percussive massagers and won't only help your recovery, but it might just relieve some stress in the process.
