Holding true to their reputation, you won’t go wrong with Patagonia’s Bivy Down Jacket… that is if you can get him one while they are in stock.
Filson Dry Backpack
There is a reason why Filson’s mottos is “unfailing goods.” You could fit this bag full of smartphones, snap it shut, and walk around in a Seattle downpour for 24 hours straight and not a single drop would get in.

Everyone knows the flannel is a staple throughout the winter months.

The simple and minimal design also allows the freedom to dress up or dress down depending on the crowd, pants optional.
