Founded in 1973, Backwoods carries the latest collections of outdoor clothing and survival supplies for amateur earth explorers. Ascend summits in style with polyurethane-padded North Face gloves ($25), heavyweight fleece finger cocoons that keep digits dexterous in colder climates. The honeycomb construction of Patagonia Capilene 3 long-sleeve shirts ($32) draws swarms of sweat away from human hives, keeping men and women warmer, drier, and significantly less slippery than their perspiration-coated companions. Eagle Creek?s ultimate packing solution set ($29.99) gives adventure-seekers three ways to safely stow wrinkle-free wearables during their travels, none of which involves mounting an armoire on roller skates. Turn a walk in the park with Fido into a trip along the trails with a roamer leash ($24) to keep him close and a bivy bowl ($19) to satisfy his thirst for canine champagne.
