L.L. Bean 100th Anniversary Snowshoes

Whether you're buying snowshoes as a curiosity, as decor, or as footwear, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better, more traditional pair than these L.L. Bean 100th Anniversary Snowshoes ($330). Crafted by hand, the frame of the shoes is made from steambent white ash that's specifically selected to ensure the grain runs the full length of the shoe, while the decking is handlaced using top-grain rawhide that's been varnished to seal out moisture and add rigidity. They haven't changed much since their 1941 debut, but then again, neither has snow. [via]

  • FieldCandy Tents

    Make the outdoors your own by laying your head down inside one of these FieldCandy Tents ($620 and up). These spacious two-person tents — apart from offering lockable storage pockets, sturdy, easy-to-set-up poles, breathable cotton construction, and a large porch to hide your gear — feature huge, full-length graphics that transform the structure from a colorful blot on the landscape into a book, brick building, tweed jacket, illustration, giant piece of cheese — pretty much anything you'd want.

  • Tetra Shed

    Any longtime reader knows our affinity for small, unorthodox, outdoor offices, and the Tetra Shed ($TBA) continues this tradition in grand fashion. Clad in copper, zinc, corten steel, or marine plywood, and lined in birch-faced plywood or plasterboard, the Tetra is a modular garden office that can be combined with up to five other units to create a rather massive outdoor/indoor workspace. Coming in January. [via]
