Even though winter is celebrated as the great season of being indoors, the most ambitious among us see it as an invitation to take on nature at its most beautiful — and most challenging. The only thing setting those people apart is the right gear.

For your adventure-seeking man who wants to be ready for the outdoors — whether that means packing for a black diamond ski trip, or throwing on the best outerwear for rainy sprints between the front door and the front seat — Nordstrom has compiled the best and brightest men’s performance-wear brands to shop, just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Its new venture, called Concept 1: Out Cold, features nearly 100 top picks that will cover his every winter adventuring need, from camping dishware and woolen socks to outerwear and accessories that are expert-approved.
