A true classic, and where our story all began. For men who ski, snowboard, hike, hunt, hike, shovel, walk the dog, work outside, etc. this gift is a perfect fit. Two thick layers of classic fleece (truly the softest and most comfortable fleece in the world) and the seamless design ensure that this one-size-fits-all neck warmer gives them the custom fit they’re looking for. If he spends his winter days outside and is looking for long lasting warmth and comfort, choose the Turtle’s Neck.
This might appear to be a simple, classic look, but the Explorer Cuffed Beanie is anything but simple. The relaxed, semi-slouchy fit makes it a go-to beanie that matches just about every style. It’s thick and plush, as well as fully self-lined, meaning it keeps the cold at bay. A great choice for the man who loves to be outside all day, all season long.
A lightweight, close-fitting beanie, the Brain Shroud is a perfect option for insulating under a helmet, or acting as stand-alone coverage for cold weather runs, morning dog walks, winter hikes, or brisk mornings getting logs for the fire. Made of our proprietary technical fabric, it has a brushed interior which feels soft against the skin, and it’s both breathable and quick-drying, making this a gift that he’ll be sure to put to good use.
This casual beanie is a winter must-have for a reason. The In The Wild is shameless brand promotion with a focus on style and comfort. With Turtle Fur stitched around the cuff and a beautiful mountain landscape featured on the rest, this beanie is designed for those with a passion for weekend adventures in the mountains. Plus, it will keep him warm and comfortable, no matter the weather. A perfect fit for on the mountain, coffee at base camp, or or après-ski tailgates.
On mountain gifts
This lightweight, breathable, multifunctional tube will protect his face and neck from windburn, sun, spray, and cold. For those that like to keep it simple, we have a variety of solid colors. For those that like to spice things up, we have great print options (including some incredible limited edition prints) that scream fun. Whichever you choose, this is must-have gear for days on the mountain. Its brushed interior feels soft against the skin, and with 4-way stretch and moisture wicking properties, the Totally Tubular is a perfect fit for every winter adventure. Bonus? All our tubes clock in under $35.
Our highest-performing balaclava to date, the quattroClava is truly revolutionary. Building upon the success of the Totally Tubular™, we added a vented face and nose area, as well as an on-demand, flip-up Storm Flap™ for maximum face protection. The flip-up flap is truly what sets this piece apart from traditional balaclavas. Maybe he needs a bit of room to breath - he can flip the Storm Flap down and he'll have meshed holes for easy, comfortable breathing. Maybe it's sub-zero temps or the snow is really coming down - he can flip the Storm Flap up for an extra layer of coverage between him and elements.
The MaxClava comes in multiple varieties, meaning you can get one for your dad, one for your husband, one for your son, and one for you (we believe in treating yourself). Choose the Comfort Shell MaxClava or Stria Prints Maxclava for a breathable, sweat wicking, insanely warm option (take your pick of solids or prints). Looking for even more warmth and thicker coverage? Choose the Micro Fur Fleece MaxClava, which traps heat and blocks the wind (while still feeling soft against your face). Whichever MaxClava you choose, you can trust that he’ll be comfortable and ready to tackle the slopes, with both face and neck protected from the elements.
When the softest, most beloved fleece in the world pairs together with our proprietary technical fabric, you get the Classic Heavyweight Shellaclava. This is the #1 under helmet accessory on the market, and for good reason. Two layers of fleece will wrap his neck and lower face in warmth, while the Comfort Shell hood maintains moisture and retains heat, keeping things breathable under helmet. Will fit perfectly tucked into the collar of his jacket, meaning even if he wipeouts, no cold (or snow) is getting in.
If he’s looking to be on-trend, consider the Kyle Overhood. This incredible piece is extra protection from the snow and cold, as it sits over helmet (or hat) – meaning no powder is getting on his neck and under his jacket, even after the most epic of wipeouts. This single-layer overhood gives him additional coverage for those brutal days, and the internal cinch cord ensures he gets the custom fit he needs to be comfortable and tackle those double-blacks.
Après Ski Gifts
Does he need something to cover up his helmet hair after a day on the slopes? Or maybe he rocks bed head these days, and needs a trucker for those early-morning Zoom meetings that shows he'd rather be at the mountain. This truckers is midweight, while a curved brim that will shield his face from the sun when he’s on the deck, sipping a post-ski beer. The adjustable snap-back closure ensures he gets the fit he needs, so this cap won’t go flying even if the wind picks up.
The Williamsburg Watch Cap comes in a variety of colors, so you can get him the beanie that best matches his gear. Easy and laid back, this unlined beanie is perfect for a fun night on the town or casual night around the fire, pairing just as well with a peacoat as it does a ski jacket. Made of 92% recycled content, he can look good and feel good knowing that while he plays outside, he's making eco-conscious style choices, too.
He’ll love the classic, cherished Nordic look of the Lars Knit Beanie. A merino wool blend winter hat, it’s soft, breathable, and inherently warm due to the moisture management and heat retention properties of the fabric. To top that off, the fleece band lining ensures there is extra protection for the ears (which really matters on those brutal winter days). The Lars can double up to be an on-mountain under-helmet layer, or be a standalone feature piece, keeping him warm while he sips his favorite apres ski cocktail.
This is an ambassatur favorite. A winter hat that works inside, outside, on mountain, and at the après ski bar. As comfortable as it is versatile, this self-lined, cuffed beanie is made of a wool blend that will keep him comfortable and warm, no matter the occasion (or the weather).
Looking for a few things to throw in his stocking?
For the man that loves to camp, we’d recommend our Enamel Steel Camping Mug and Sporks. For the craft beer guru, our Vermont Card Bottle Opener and Fancy Koozie are great options. And of course, you can’t go wrong with The Hat, our incredibly soft, incredibly packable beanie made of Original Turtle Fur Fleece.
Whichever you choose, it’s our hope that these gifts help the men in your life live their best adventures.
