Backpacks are like best friends that hug you and keep you safe. They've always got your back and, as long as you remember to bring them along, will be there for you no matter what. But when you're out breaking trail and your backpack is left to bring up the rear, who has your backpack's back? The ARVA Helmet Holder is one candidate. It keeps the lines of your backpack* tight for th..
Finally, some goggles that work for uphill skiing. Julbo has an ingeniously simple plan for tackling the inevitable fogging that occurs if you ski with a typical goggle in the backcountry. All you do is pull the lens away from your face, which pops open to leave a sub-centimeter gap all around the glass. This is just enough to let your steam escape and a freshening airflow to work ..
Now the award-winning SuperFlow system is available in a more affordable goggle. The Airflux sports the same amazing ventilation found in the Aerospace, but without the chromatic lenses. Instead the goggles are fitted with an assortment of Julbo Spectron lenses, each adept in different lighting conditions. If you’re headed uphill to ski, pop the lens away from your face with a simp..
Sunglasses work fine for most fair-weather backcountry skiing thanks to the superior airflow and venting while skinning. When the weather rolls in or the powder gets deep, goggles step in with extra protection. The issue with goggles is that when skinning they turn into a fishbowl of fog, sweat, and humidity, rendering them useless. Julbo took note of skiers’ demands for a goggle d..
The Julbo Aero is the high-performance optic of choice for mountain athletes the world over. No frame or lens detail was overlooked. The lens sits suspended within the frame to create a small gap perfectly sized for massive amounts of ventilation even at low speeds. The wrapping lens combats distortion and ensures crystal clear protection from the elements. The 3D Fit Nose piece an..
Your face is the most common place to forget the Julbo Aerolites. Built on the same platform as the Aero, the Aerolite is an equally high-performance optic, only slightly narrower and even lighter. A rimless lens design paired with massive ventilation cutouts on the sides come together to form a pair of glasses so light you’ll forget they're on your face while frantically searching..
The Ski Trab Maximo goggle fills a niche in the ski-eyewear market. Most glasses don’t offer enough protection when weather rolls in or on deep powder days. And when you tomahawk in a race, so much for your expensive glasses lost in the snow. Normal goggles don’t vent anywhere near enough to be viable in a race or touring setting as the high-tech anti-fog treatments get overwhelmed..

The new Petzl Bindi puts the power of 200 lumens in the palm of your hands. Actually make that around your head, since it’s a headlamp. Or neck, because it’s also a necklace?

Trab chose enough battery to save your hi..

CAMP describes the G Comp Wind as the ultimate glove for spring ski tours and randonee races. We think the hyperbole is justified. The basic glove is lightweight, flexible and grippy.
