10 Ski Gear Essentials for the Slopes

Psyched for your next ski trip? Just make sure to sub your old winter wear with the latest in technology—guaranteed to keep you comfy and dry.
With their rockstar Enigma jacket, Helly Hansen takes the standard hard shell—waterproof and breathable—and bolsters insulation and air flow by lining the interior with natural down pillows designed to create space between the jacket and your body. Chest and back zips also help to adjust ventilation, and sewn-in stretch cuffs with thumb holes keep snow out of your sleeves if you fall. Plus the Enigma’s built-in RECCO reflector transmits a signal to help rescuers pinpoint your location. ($700, shop.hellyhansen.com)
