For a lower-profile but warm layering solution, consider the Grand Trek Down Jacket. This hooded, sport-focused coat keeps the bulk to a minimum with its riveted pattern that keeps the down in place and allows for maximum mobility. Inside the jacket is Columbia’s Omni-Heat reflective material that radiates the heat coming off your body back toward you instead of bleeding out the seams.

When layering up for a cold day, a puffy is your best friend. Columbia’s Autumn Park Down Jacket provides temperature regulation on days when the barometer is dropping and the weather is sure to change. Filled with 650-fill down, this jacket is made for warmth. Three exterior pockets are available for all your gear (or hands) and feature zipper closures to keep things in place.
If first chair and bagging big altitude is the game plan, the Titanium Peak Pursuit Shell is the ideal solution for keeping dry and warm this winter season. Columbia’s top-of-the-line winter jacket features a fully seam-sealed Omni-Tech exterior to keep the elements out. Inside the jacket, you’ll find media pockets, a powder skirt, and the ability to connect a pair of Titanium pants. If you need to buy a jacket for the guy who has it all, this is the one.
If splitting the difference between colder climes and the wet of fall weather, the Columbia Fairbanks Omni-Heat Boot makes a great compromise. With an Omni-Tech seam-sealed interior bootie and a full CORDURA textile upper, these boots are built to keep the elements out and your socks dry and warm.
The boots you wear can make all the difference when it’s time to shovel the driveway, haul your kids up the sledding hill, or just truck around town. They also make great gifts. Columbia’s Hyper-Boreal Omni-Heat Tall Boots are designed to punch back at the elements with 200g insulation, Techlight midsoles, and a TPU-laminated mesh surrounding the inner booties.
Wherever the trail may take you, the Three Forks Black Dot Jacket aims to provide warmth and protection from the elements.

When it’s time to lighten up the layers, the Three Forks Jacket packs down into a stuff pocket and stores easily in a backpack for future use.
If you’re shopping for a woman who fancies only the finest haute couture but still needs to wade through the snow, look no further!

The interior of these boots boasts Columbia’s Omni-Heat reflective liner, which bounces the warmth back to your toes, where it belongs.
If the Slopeside Boot isn’t your thing, we’ve tracked down the Minx Short III Boot for your gift-buying pleasure. Waterproof and warm like its bigger siblings, the Minx Short features a slightly lower profile and a more minimal faux fur collar.

Rated to -25 degrees Fahrenheit, the Minx Short III Boot is made for icy-toed individuals.
If a little length is needed, the Women’s Mountain Croo Long Down Jacket meets the moment.
