BUY

• Ruffwear SingleTrak Dog Pack

$89.95; www.ruffwear.com/Singletrak-Pack-Dog-Pack?sc=2&category=13

For those who like to hike with Rover, the Ruffwear pack has been rated tops by several gear-oriented websites. Why not let the dog carry all your stuff while you saunter down the trail? The SingleTrak pack can carry water and provisions and is adjustable to most breeds (sizes) of dogs. Reviewers say the pack is comfortable on the dogs, but you’d have ask the dog to really know for sure.

BUY

• Icebreaker LS Siren Crewe

$74.99; www.amazon.com/Icebreaker-Womens-Sleeve-Siren-Crewe/dp/B008E77PQ8

Yes, we know that $75 seems a bit steep for base-layer clothing (a.k.a. underwear), but do you want to stay warm on the slopes, or not? This product is 96 percent merino wool (4 percent elastane), and the great thing about merino wool – other than its toastiness – is that it repels odor.
