Timeless and functional, flannel is a hard fabric to beat. The Feedback Flannel by Outdoor Research is both tough and comfortable. Along with all of the classic warmth that comes with a flannel, the Feedback features a sampling of new-age technology like quick-drying and wicking material to keep you out in the field and dry when everyone else heads inside for the fire. Simple and dependable, this flannel has been with me for just about everything, and I have yet to find its limitations. Available at Northern Lights. $80; outdoorresearch.com.
