2015 Winter Editors' Choice Awards

The only way to find the best winter gear? Get out and stay out—all season long.

How did we find the best winter products on the market? By putting them through their paces in the outdoors. We assembled a team of editors and testers to stretch the limits of ski gear, apparel, survival gadgets and more for an entire season. From a better helmet to a bargain winter pack to a foolproof firestarter, these eleven products come with the Backpacker stamp of approval.
