November Gear Roundup 

It’s here, folks—November. We can’t believe it either. The start of ski season, the wind-down of bike season, the switch to frosty morning runs and pumpy evenings at the climbing gym. It’s time to take inventory of what we still need for winter … the perfect set of gloves for uphill ski touring, the best low-light goggles for cloudy resort days, the snuggliest sleeping bag for winter yurt trips, the just-right fleece leggings for cold-weather jogging.

We’re all looking ahead to the holiday season too, pledging that this year we’ll actually plan and shop ahead. Which is why this month’s gear roundup is full of pre-holiday glad tidings. Each week, we’ll feature one beloved brand here on Geartrade for up to 80% off. It offers the perfect opportunity to swoop up a few items you need for the coming season … either for yourself or as gifts for those on your list.

Here’s a sneak peek at our UnNew November advent calendar of gear deals.  

Jack Wolfskin Green Fleece Jacket

Week one: Jack Wolfskin 

If you aren’t familiar with this high-performance, high-sustainability European brand, it’s time to get acquainted with Jack Wolfskin. The company has been around for decades and only recently launched in North America. Now we’re lucky enough to have easy access to their superb outerwear, insulating layers, base layers, casual clothes, and backpacks. We love their classic colors, practical mountain sensibility, excellent construction, and most of all, their commitment to minimizing their environmental impact. You’ll notice lots of recycled fabrics, organic cotton, PFC-free and PVC-free manufacturing, and insistence on humane practices when it comes to animal products like down and wool.

Scott Ski Poles

Week two: Scott

Scott got its start decades ago when Ed Scott, a ski racer and engineer living in Sun Valley, reinvented the ski pole—coming up with an aluminum replacement that would work far better than the typical bamboo. This initial innovation gave way to countless more to follow, such as the first-ever motocross goggle, the first carbon mountain bike frame, and an easy-swap ski goggle lens. They remain well known for the ski poles that started it all, as well as the full product lines they’ve grown over the years, including helmets, outerwear, gloves, boots, packs, bikes, and more. Just think—every time you plant an aluminum pole for a powder turn, you have Scott to thank.

Salewa Womens Jacket

Week three: Salewa

Headquartered in the Dolomites, Salewa has crafted gear and clothing for the mountains since the 1940s. They’ve made great use of all that time, testing and testing every product till it’s perfect—then finding ways to keep innovating and improving even more over time. They made their name in sturdy ski poles and just kept on going, developing some of the earliest adjustable crampons back in the ‘60s and even inventing the tubular ice screw today’s models are still based on. Today, they offer a robust line of time-tested and mountain-approved goods, from mountain-ready trail running shoes to wool-insulated mountaineering clothing that stays warm even when the weather takes a turn.

Odlo Baselayer

Week four: Odlo

If anyone understands smart layering for the elements, it’s Norwegians. It’s why Norway-born, Swiss-engineered Odlo has our attention. They leave no detail unexamined, and they meticulously craft every running jacket, ski layer, rain shell, sports bra, and insulated coat with an eye for high-output performance in variable weather conditions. Not only do they have a great look, with bright playful color-blocks and classic neutrals alike, but they maintain a keen commitment to sustainability. They’ve set an impressive goal for 100% sustainable materials by the year 2030 and have made excellent progress toward that. They’ve achieved 97% climate-neutral shipping, and they ensure fair working conditions and wages for those producing Odlo’s goods. The brand’s a true standout in our minds—both for performance and protection of the planet we love to play on.
