Gifts for the Adventure Traveler: The Jet Setter
Tivoli Radio Silenz headphones
Noise-canceling headphones tend to be plastic through and through. The Radio Silenz ($160) are made with walnut, cherry, or black ash. It's no gimmick—the wood insulates the speakers for enhanced sound quality.
Stio Men’s Kirby Nylon Windshirt
The pearl-snap Kirby ($115) is more than meets the eye: this button-down shirt-jacket is made from moisture-wicking nylon. It's ideal for everything from spring skiing to cool-weather hiking to knocking around town on a windy day.
Herschel City backpack
Herschel's packs are cool enough for your teenage nephew for the same reasons they're just right for you: simplicity and style. The top-loading City backpack ($55) is made of waxed cotton and polyester, and features a magnetic closure.
Kaufmann Mercantile Rain Cape
You don't have to look like a mountaineer to keep the rain off. Kaufmann Mercantile's ($179) waxed-cotton Rain Cape is a British-made poncho with a hood and internal straps to cinch extra fabric.
Dale of Norway Sochi Sweater
We're not sure why the Norwegian national Olympic team has an official sweater, but we get why they had Dale of Norway ($318) make it. The handcrafted Sochi sweater is sewn from pill-resistant, 28-micron wool, which is just as warm as merino but has that old-school ski-sweater look.
