Threads: Workingman's Chic

Tough outerwear picks from Skiing Magazine: Wear 'em when you're chainsawin', off-roadin', sleddin', shootin', or skiin'.
posted: 11/04/2008

Deuter Hjorleifson EH Edge Pack

Designed with input from Canadian big-mountain skier Eric Hjorleifson, the khaki EH Edge has leather patches and a classic look, but the technology is all modern. The 30-liter pack has a removable frame for light-and-fast days, a hipbelt with tool pockets, and expandable top storage. [$159; deuter.com]

Carhartt Acrylic Beanie

This stretchy, rib-knit acrylic beanie is all woodsman. But it’s not bad as a ski cap either.

Solstice Gear Different Drummer Parka

Stitched from a thick canvas-like fabric, the Different Drummer has a plaid lining, Thinsulate insulation, and a detachable hood. It also has a built-in pass holder and a bottle opener. You supply the Old Milwaukee.

Columbia Nailgun Pant

We tried destroying these nylon pants—hooking them with branches, splashing them with beer, running ski edges along the cuffs. No luck. Plus, the waterproof zips will keep you dry. [$150; http://columbia.com/ target=_blank>columbia.com]

Scott Alias Pub Crawl Goggles

Whether you’re chopping snow or wood, these limited-edition plaid goggles with a bronze chrome lens will keep stuff out of your eyes. Even blood. [$100; http://scottusa.com/ target=_blank>scottusa.com]

Cloudveil Far Drift Glove

The shell on these gloves is woven nylon and washable, water-repellent goatskin. Even tough lumberjacks will find the 150-gram fiberfill pretty damn snuggly. [$85; http://www.cloudveil.com/ target=_blank>cloudveil.com]
