Six Mid-Winter Essentials
Smart layering, an EDC pack, frame-worthy art, and formidable footwear

With the winter here in the East fluctuating between snow storms and 60 degree days it’s never easy to tell just how to dress. That said, there are a few key pieces every closet should hold, be it early fall or late winter. And lucky for you, we just updated our curated Huckberry shop (read: deals! deals! deals!). From the perfect layering piece to an everyday carry pack from our friends at Mystery Ranch, to art to stare at when the next storm rolls through, the following six stuffs are worth a closer look.
Snow Peak Stretch Wool Quarter Zip
Our love for Snow Peak is well documented. They really get it. This quarter zip pullover ($160) is a great example—it’s comfortable, highly functional, and stylish enough to wear in town, on the hill, or in the backcountry. Plus a drop rear hem adds protection when worn during activities like cycling or hiking.
Mystery Ranch Java Daypack 17 L
This Bozeman, Montana-based brand makes custom packs for the world’s elite special forces. They also make equally bombproof packs for civilians like us. That should be enough of a sell right there. Now consider the unique design that makes the Java Daypack ($160) easy to pack and even easier to dig into, and that’s a done deal.
Fjallraven Ovik Lite Jacket
We recently wore a head to toe Fjallraven kit while trouncing around Peru, through every type of terrain and weather, and couldn’t have been more impressed. No, we have no personal experience with the Ovik Lite Jacket ($199), but we’d wager it’s well worth the heavily discounted price the Huckboys are asking for it.
Hanwag Grunten Boot
A sturdy pair of boots is beyond a must. And well, they hardly get sturdier than this. Hanwag has been making boots in Germany for a century or more, so needless to say, the Grunten ($299) is the beneficiary of a lifetime of R&D experience. The styling is classic and modern at the same time, and will keep your feet dry and warm in even the gnarliest weather (here’s proof).
Fronds Print by Sean Spellman
John Waters once said, “If you go home with somebody, and they don't have books, don't fuck 'em!” And well, the same goes for art. So don’t be the guy or gal with bare white walls. This limited edition 12” x 12” Fronds Print ($50) is an easy, and attractive, solution.
Jeff Masamori Tamalpais Redwoods Print
Reread the John Waters quote above and then buy this beautiful photograph print of Mount Tamalpais by Jeff Masamori ($260). While nothing compares to wandering among the redwood giants in person, this beautiful black and white print is the closet most of us will get on a daily basis.
