For the Ladies
Comfort and versatility are important when you live where it is always cold! The Patagonia Quilted Snap-T Pullover is perfect if you are looking for a cozy layering piece. I would wear this layered with a plaid flannel, distressed denim, Sorel wedges, and a cute pom beanie for a casual weekend look.

I’ve had the same Sorel winter boots since my freshman year of college – which I love – but it’s time to retire them as they’re a little worn out from various outdoor activities. My family stays pretty active in the winter going sledding and tubing, and I’d love a pair of cute new boots from the brand I love.

Living in North Dakota means a good winter jacket is a MUST, and I have wanted a Canada Goose jacket since the first time I laid eyes on one. I love that the shape of the jacket gives a feminine silhouette instead of looking boxy like other winter coats tend to. I hope one ends up in my closet this year! 🙂

As I advance in my yoga practice, the importance of a durable, easy-to-transfer mat is essential. This Manduka mat is at the top of my Christmas list this year. The Prolite mat is slip resistant and travel friendly – great for hot-yoga! The cushion of this mat is incredibly comfortable. I have tried other mats, but the Manduka mat is the top of the line and completes my yoga gear!

As a mom of three active kids, I want to be able to capture as many memories as possible of my kids growing up. Getting a GoPro would allow us the opportunity to sit in the stands and capture an event as well as participate in an event with our kids and capture those moments too!

For the Guys
Riding bike is an activity that I not only use to get exercise but also spending time with my family. This helmet can help me stay safe on a ride of any distance, stay cool on the hot days with great ventilation but most importantly sets a great example for my girls. See all helmets here.
The Bontrager Trip 300 Computer is on my list this holiday season to help maximize every ride as I begin training for Ironman Wisconsin next year. Real-time data around cadence and speed will ensure my training is according to my training plan on the road or on the trainer. See all bike accessories here.

During the winter months, I enjoy getting outdoors scouting the hunting property, trapping and limiting the population of varmints that could hurt the whitetail population. That’s why I have an electronic call at the top of my list; the FOXPRO would be a great addition to my arsenal. With its downloaded 1000 sounds out of the box, I would be sure to use it throughout all the hunting seasons: waterfowl, big game and varmints.

My bow is always on the move with me and having a proper, safe way to transport it is very important. Having a quality case that can fit my bow with quiver and stabilizer attached allows me to quickly unpack my bow and get to the stand or the range. See all hunting cases here.

The older I get, the more I enjoy pursuing big game in hard-to-reach places. Whether I am chasing mule deer in the badlands or whitetails in the river bottoms, I have found that few things are as important as the backpack you carry on your back. Comfort, support, organization and load carrying capabilities make the Mystery Ranch Metcalf one of the best packs on the market. Having Sitka Subalpine pattern being featured on this pack is just an added bonus!
