Top Winter Gear Recommendations To Stay Warm & Active

Let’s face it – if you’re going to be moving outside during Vancouver’s winter months, you’re going to get wet. This does not, however, mean your workout has to be uncomfortable, soggy, and bone-chilling. So, here at #TeamTreloar, we put together a few of our top recommendations for water-resistant, quick-drying, and insulating products to help allow your rainy or snowy-day workout a more pleasurable experience this winter!  

 

Gore-Tex Hiking Boots

Designed for the serious hiker, these Quest GTX hikers offer a protective rubber heel cap to guard against injury on the trail. With a higher profile, your ankles have optimal stabilization and support. The gusseted tongue protects against pebbles and muck, while the Gore-Tex build keeps you dry and comfortable. 

 

 

 

MEC Hydrofoil Pants 

A classic all-mountain fit makes the MEC Hydrofoil Pants adaptable for a range of activities. Wear them for skiing, hiking or tackling routes in unpredictable alpine settings. 2.5 layer construction makes them eminently light and packable! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Asics Lite-Show Structured Cap 

This unisex cap has a built-in moisture management system to help keep things dry. In low-light situations, like running at dawn or dusk, the dot pattern becomes reflective when light hits it.

 

 

 

 

The SmartWool Cuffed Beanie

This hat is a great piece of headwear that will keep your head protected against cold in the most severe winter conditions. It is made of 100% Merino wool and thus offers superb anti-odor and moisture wicking properties. The hat is equipped with a roll cuff earband, which not only allows you to adjust the perfect fit but also keeps your ears remarkably warm. 

 

 

 

 

Atom AR Jacket 

Significantly warmer and more protective than a fleece jacket, this insulated jacket is breathable enough to be used as a super warm mid-layer on frigid days and protective enough to be an outer layer while belaying or hanging out at camp.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Atom LT Jacket

Versatile combination for layering on cold wet days or as an outer layer in cold dry conditions. This warm mid-layer features composite materials that provide balanced warmth and breathability. A wind and moisture resistant outer shell extends stand-alone usability.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lulumenon Wunder Under Pant

These no-fuss pants were designed to fit like a second skin—perfect for yoga, the gym or for wearing under your pants to keep extra warm when outside in the rain or snow. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Icebreaker Merino Wool Socks

If you're looking for a sock that will keep your feet warm and dry, add a little cushioning, and make your shoes more comfortable day after day, reach for these bad boys! With a reinforced toe and heel, a little cushioning under the foot, and a light, breathable weave over the instep, it fits great and lasts longer than other socks. And because it is merino, it resists odor and bacteria, and keeps your feet dry and happy all day.

 

 

 

Nike Therma-Fit Gloves

The Nike Therma-FIT Elite Run Gloves will keep your hands warm and protected from all of the elements Vancouver has to offer this winter. Featuring fleece lining for added warmth and comfort these are a great choice for outdoor runs and hikes!
