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]
No, it's not a gas-powered hazard sized down to dangerously small proportions — the Pocket Chain Saw ($20) is instead a tiny-yet-potent saw made from heat-treated steel that can cut through limbs up to 3" in diameter with ease. It's perfect for campers, hikers, and anyone else who might need to cut up a
body tree in a pinch.

Most guys dread the thought of clothes shopping and dread the thought of having to try clothes on at a store even more. With Mott & Bow, you can say goodbye to that painful process, and still get a well designed, great fitting pair of premium jeans. Mott & Bow is all about comfort and quality. They use different types of denim from left-hand weave Italian denim for extreme softness (seriously, they're really soft) to 4-way stretch denim for optimal flexibility. Mott & Bow cuts out the middleman and sells directly to you so they can sell their jeans at half the price of jeans of the same quality. They will also ship you two waist sizes at no extra charge to make sure you get the right fit — just send back the pair that doesn't fit at no additional cost. Finally, you can afford premium denim that fits without an awkward trip to a department store. And keep an eye out, as several new styles are on the way in 2018.
