The most rugged boots around won't do you much good in the wilderness if your laces can't hold up to the abuse. With Castle Brook Paralaces ($6-$8), that won't be an issue. These hand-crafted bootlaces claim to the toughest available, thanks to seven-strand construction with 550 lb-tested Nylon Kernmantle rope, aglets made from polyolefin plastics that literally bind and mesh with the nylon fibers underneath, becoming one with the lace, and a lifetime guarantee. Try finding one of those for the laces that came with your shoes.
Driving is fun. Driving in the snow and cold can be fun. But driving with cold hands? Never fun. This Tanner Driver Glove ($75) keeps the fun factor high and your digits warm with authentic deerskin that starts out supple — to give you better feel behind the wheel — and further and softens and conforms to your hands over time, until it's almost a part of you. A part that you can take off when the weather gets warm. Which is good, because you'd look rather suspicious rolling around with gloves on during the summer.
If you're simply looking for something elegant to hold your myriad keys, the General Mfg. Wilson Keyring ($10) is well worth a shot. Formed from a single piece of 1/8" brass wire, each ring measures a pocketable 2" x 1.125", can hold a completely unpocketable number of keys, and features a small enamel marking in one of three colors — red, blue, or grey — to help you easily identify which set you're grabbing (should you happen to own more than one).
