The Rundown...




We're nearly done digging out from the 6th biggest blizzard in New York City history (thanks, Mayor Bloomberg). 


Gear up — and look good — for the next snowpocalypse with our favorite wintry weather gear.


Anorak
The Swedes know snow. Nordic heritage brand Fjallraven has developed the ultimate winter anorak, with a synthetic fur-lined hood and — hey oh! — crotch snaps, so the jacket won't be displaced if the fluffy stuff gets north of your junk. 
$290 at Fjallraven, 262 Mott St. (212-226-7846)


Scarf
This boiled wool scarf from Steven Alan is treated to be non-itchy and extra warm. It's also possibly strong enough to use as a lasso in the event you need to swing across puddles. 
$98 at Steven Alan Tribeca, 103 Franklin St. (212-343-0692)


Axe Kit
Whittle away a custom handle out of American Hickory while you're waiting for the subway (and scare away potential muggers). And if your apartment's without heat, put it to use and hack some of those old benches up for firewood.  
$140 here


Boots
All your classic Americana brands in one boot. Kick wispy hipsters out of the way in single-lane sidewalk snow channels with these Timberlands that have Pendleton wool prints on the roll-down ankle. 
$290 at Opening Ceremony in the Ace Hotel. 1192 Broadway (646-695-5680)
