Nau Insular Jacket
When it comes to cold-weather protection, a technical shell like Nau’s Insular Jacket will give you lots of versatility while keeping weight and material use to a minimum. This streamlined 100% waterproof parka is insulated with a recycled polyester/COCONA material made from coconut husks, and it’s flexible enough to be worn on its own on warmer days or layered under for blustery mountain peak conditions.

A pair of warm winter gloves is an essential when you’re tackling the icy slopes – so unless you’re a fan of frostbite we recommend picking up a pair of REI’s Recycled Fleece Grip Gloves. These cozy mittens are designed to keep digits toasty, and they’re made from at least 50% recycled polyester fibers.
