Base Layer:

ICONX HEATED CORE VEST, $150, Buy It! — (* USE Promo Code H&B20 for 20% off.)

ICONX HEATED CORE PANT, $150, Buy It! — (* USE Promo Code H&B20 for 20% off.)

The revolutionary design of the IconX Heated Core Vest / Pants puts the heat where your body needs it the most: next to your skin. Pnuma Outdoors combined next to skin warmth with the unparalleled wicking and muscle support of IconX performance to create the most innovative base layer available. Three different heat settings provide incredible, sustained warmth with no bulk and complete freedom of movement.


The Dawa Sherpa Full-Zip K3 Fleece keeps you warm and comfortable for static insulation, campfire downtime, or daily casualwear. Lightweight fabric crafted with thick pile and double-sided brushing delivers bulk-free warmth and next-to-skin softness. An attached hood pops up for extra coziness and light weather protection, and roomy zippered pockets offer fast hand-warming convenience.

Outer Layer:


Gearing up for the cold doesn’t mean slowing down with the Cetra Durable K7 Jacket. PrimaLoft® Gold Eco Insulation wards off frosty temperatures without bulking you up, and the whole jacket can be packed down into a stuff sack when not in use. Weather-resistant protection keeps out moisture, and fast-drying construction will take care of you even if you do get wet.

INSULATOR PANT, $140, Buy It! — (* USE Promo Code H&B20 for 20% off.)

The Insulator gives you an incredibly warm, lightweight, easy-moving layer that’s water-resistant and holds your body’s heat without bulk. Versatile enough to wear as your outer layer on frosty mid-season mornings, or for unparalleled warmth as a mid-layer when the cold weather settles in. The Pnumagrid™ quilting pattern maintains insulation integrity while raglan sleeves with seamless shoulders provide comfort under pack straps, and fleece-lined pockets keep your hands comfortably warm.

Gloves: GUIDE GLOVE, $135, Buy It!

As rugged as your adventures and then some, the Guide Glove is built for durability, warmth, and capability. Lightweight PrimaLoft® insulation and wool-blend lining protect against cold, while pre-curved fingers with e-tips at the index and thumb retain dexterity and ease of access. Genuine French leather, knuckle guards, and suede nose wipes round out the repertoire of these adventure-ready gloves.

    "It is painting the picture of the great outdoors as it applies to the modern outdoorsman. That lifestyle can be illustrated by the clothes that we wear, the vehicles we drive, the drinks that we drink, the places we travel to, the gear that we own, and ultimately the hunts that we participate in." — John Radzwilla, Editor-In-Chief
