5 great additions to your mudroom

Don't forget your Xtratufs!

1. Three Posts Gaskell Storage Bench ($175)

This handsome two-person bench made of Asian hardwood has three drawers to keep all of your household's hats, gloves, and scarves neatly stowed away. Assembly is required. Buy it at Amazon.

2. Black Diamond Alpine Trekking Poles ($120)

There's no better all-round trekking pole than Black Diamond's carbon-fiber model with cork grips. A "stellar" flip-lock mechanism handles height adjustments, and the carbon fiber is "strong enough for the roughest of trails." Buy it at Amazon.

3. PackTowl Personal Towel ($40)

This super-absorbent quick-drying camping towel is great for "nearly every towel-related scenario." They're just the thing for wiping down a wet dog, too, because an antibacterial treatment controls odors. Buy it at Amazon.

4. DryGuy Force Dry ($50)

There's nothing worse than starting a day by having to step into cold, damp, and smelly boots. This electric boot dryer blows hot air from each of its two foldable mounts, drying boots — or gloves — in about an hour. Buy it at Amazon.

5. Xtratuf 15-inch Legacy Boots ($100)

"If there were a state boot of Alaska, it would be the Xtratuf." A rugged, nonslip neoprene rain boot long favored by the state's commer­cial fishermen, the Xtratuf "rules in rain and slop." Also available with insulation and steel toes. Buy it at Amazon.
