Winter Gear Guide: Snuggle Gear

Snuggle Up in This Snuggle Gear

Meet the gear guaranteed to keel you warm and cozy this winter.

1. Selk’bag Patagon

Ok, we admit that we were skeptical when we first saw the Selk’bag. A wearable sleeping bag? But the versatilty of this thing won us over. No more fussing with clothes when you need to pee in the middle of the night. Stay warm when you make breakfast on that hut trip. The top-of-the-line Patagon is good down to 35 degrees and features removable booties.

2. Melanzana High Loft Hoody

Meet the warmest, snuggle-iest thing we put on our bodies this winter. Wear this out to the cafe and people will reach out and touch it. Wear it on a hut trip or winter camping and you are guaranteed warmth. Even better, it’s made here in Colorado.

3. Arc’teryx Cerium LT Hoody

How to craft a warm puffy that can 1) survive real use in the elements, 2) pack down for that hut trip, 3) look damn good while you spend your paycheck at Whole Foods? Arc’teryx mixed and matched insulation materials here: The arms, hem and collar of this puffy are stuffed with Coreloft, which can retain heat even when pummeled with driving snow. But in the core, you’ll find heavenly 850-fill goose down, which retains heat in the most important areas of the body like no synthetic can. That made this our favorite in a market that’s full of impressive insulated jackets.

4. Liberty Puzzles

Really want to snuggle in old-style this winter. Turn off all the screens and ringtones, light a fire and start to work on one of these amazing puzzles. You may not emerge until spring. Not only do they offer some aptly themed designs—like a classic French ski poster or a fiery painting of Boulder’s Flatirons—they also feature piece shapes that are works of art themselves. Think mini skiers and snowflakes. Have an idea for your own design? Liberty makes custom puzzles, too.

5. Sol Republic Tracks Air

These sleek wireless headphones will take you to another plane when you comfy up in your new puffy and fleece.
