Top Winter Essential Picks 2016

Buying winter clothes, accessories, and equipment can be a daunting (and expensive) task, especially if you’re shopping for the entire family. Whether you have a family ski trip or relaxing spa retreat coming up, you’re better off saving your money for the actual vacation rather than blowing it all on bundling everyone up. Sierra Trading Post has all the brands that I trust at discounted prices – Columbia Sportswear, SmartWool, Teva, Icebreaker, UGG, and many more.

After browsing their winter products, here are my top 6 winter essential picks for the whole family (including Fido).

Top Winter Essential Picks 2016

Terramar Thermolator Base Layer Bottoms $14.99

Top Winter Essential Picks 2016

You can not beat at the purchase price of these leggings, that are hot and made of a breathable midweight blend of spandex and polyester. Stretch fabric and the broad waistband make them super comfy — the base layer for the temperatures along with a legging and sneakers and a hoodie to match together. They offer SPF 25 sun protection. Comes in several colors, including pink and gray.

Bogner Fire + Ice Peppe-D Down Jacket $399.99

There is literally nothing worse than going cheap on your winter outerwear then regretting it later when your underclothes are soaked and you’re shivering. I highly recommend investing in a good quality down jacket that will last for years and several winter trips. This one by Bogner is made of silky, quilted waterproof nylon and packed with 600-fill power down insulation. It has a knit neck for those especially cold days and pockets aplenty for storage, including lower back pocket, handwarmer pockets, and an interior snap pocket. Comes in khaki and navy.

SmartWool Pattern Base Layer Top $49.99

It is important to coating starting with the proper base shirts. These men’s shirts by SmartWool are all made of superior merino wool fleece which will not irritate, but will supply all of the warmth and moisture wicking that merely wool may provide. The crew neck trim makes it effortless to pair them with a hoodie and jacket, or with a light jacket for milder temperatures. Comes in several designs that are striped.

Hurrta Waterproof Winter Dog Jacket $29.99

You would not venture out into the cold with good garments so why should your dog? This winter dog coat by Hurrta is produced from a wind-resistant nylon shell using Houndtex® waterproof breathable membrane, also it is lined with fleece for additional warmth. Reflectors give your pet additional safety and a drawstring makes it effortless to fix. Comes in black or blue.

UGG® Australia Aira Serape Wool-Lined Slippers $59.99

Don’t underestimate it is to travel using a fantastic pair of warm slippers. These by UGG® Australia are equally trendy and comfy due to this sheepskin lining. The rubber bottoms ensure it is possible to step out onto a patio that is frosty to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate. The moccasin-style design is very trendy tight. Comes in multi-colored and gray printing.

Marmot Clearwater 50L Backpack $89.99

A good backpack that keeps your things organized is a valuable travel essential, no matter the destination. This backpack by Marmot is perfect for rugged winter escapes, but it could just as easily work as a diaper bag or carry on item. Plenty of pocket space and a front-loading main compartment with hydration pocket and exit port make it ideal for long trips and outdoor adventures. Polyurethane frame gives it added stability for heavier loads. Comes in grey/red and moss green/grey.

What I especially love about Sierra Trading Post’s products is that they are a fraction of the price at other retailers. You can find virtually anything for your next winter adventure at an affordable price.
