Hot on the heals of Outside magazine’s 2016 winter buyer’s guide comes National Geographic Adventure’s picks for the absolute best outdoor gear for fall and winter 2015. As usual, the selection is filled with some amazing products that you’ll want to have in your gear closet for the season ahead.

Some of the items that earned a spot on Nat Geo’s list include new high-loft merino wool base layers from Patagonia, a pair of ski pants from Black Diamond that include a built-in avalanche transceiver, and a new pair of hiking boots from Hoka One One that have been getting a lot of attention since they were first revealed. Other gear that may be of interest for your favorite fall and winter outdoor activities include the new Jetboil Genesis Basecamp stove, an amazing water purifier from MSR, and Sierra Design’s new four-season tent, the Convert 2.

This is just the tip of the iceberg however, as you’ll also find Nat Geo’s picks for the best fat tire bike, an ultra-bright trail light, skis, boots, cameras, travel bags, watches – both smart and traditional – and a whole lot more. All of the new gear is available now, and would obviously make good holiday gifts for yourself or your favorite outdoor enthusiast. Check out the entire list here.
