With the walking capabilities of two-buckle boots and the skiing chops of a full-blown alpine boot, the Atomic Hawx Ultra XTD 115 W is somewhat of a contradiction. Taking cues from both the streamlined Backland and Atomic’s alpine racing boots, the Hawx i..
The Maestrale RS is one of the bestselling backcountry ski boots of all time. Generally, the rule of thumb for a time-tested classic is to not modify it much. That is, unless you plan on making it lighter, increasing stiffness, and vastly improving the wa..

As the lightest and skinniest ski in the DPS touring lineup, the Cassiar 87 Tour1 is likely to get picked on by his peers. We like to stick up for such poor souls because they will probably have the last laugh. The 87 is a classic touring ski with a mediu..
The legendary TLT has earned a higher number. While it’s a mathematical axiom that 7 > 6, in terms of weight the opposite is true. Dynafit moved away from the removable tongue system towards a streamlined design that sheds a couple hundred grams per bo..

Leave it to Karpos to design a performance ski pant like the Alagna Lite. K-Shell fabric on the front half is windproof, traps a bit of air for some very light insulating properties, and employs a DWR treatment to protect you from the elements. However, K..
The Karpos Marmolada jacket is a wonderful pick for anyone looking for a highly durable, highly water resistant touring jacket. If you're ready to ditch your hardshell, but not quite ready for a lightweight touring jacket, the Marmolada splits the differe..
The quality and attention to detail that Karpos presents is almost unmatched, which is why the versatile Mountain pant is one of the mainstays of their lineup. Sporting a top-to-bottom DWR finish, the Mountain pant will repel water, dirt, and other contam..

Standing atop the podium on race day isn't a stand-alone event. Months of training runs that start in the daylight and end with a headlamp, solo dawn patrols, and many thousands of vertical feet climbed all go into winning a race. All those funny off-bala..
The Gara Evo World Cups are lightweight racing and adventure gloves with retractable wind protection. Uniquely the wind covers stow into the back of the palm, as opposed to the wrists. This adds a bit of warmth to the back of the hand while stowed, and al..
You flock to the backcountry because you don’t want to follow rules or be told what to do. Ski touring allows you to set a skintrack and go where you want. In the backcountry, there aren’t ski patrollers telling you to slow down or restricting where you c..
If you work a 9-5 job and also ski a healthy amount, then dawn patrols, late nights, and sub-optimal weather are part of your life. Having a warm, compressible, puffy jacket that lets you stay true to your lifestyle is crucial for enjoying those environme..

The Backland Carbon Boot from Atomic is a very serious boot, and it got a serious makeover for 2019/20 season. So serious, in fact, that we aren't gonna make any jokes for the rest of this product listing (well, maybe one at the end). All the updates are ..

The new Gold Fish, aka perfect weapon. Known for producing some of the highest-performing skis atop the surface-area-to-weight charts, Movement has endeared themselves to skiers who demand premium gear. As the name would suggest, the Race Pro 71 is 71mm w..

On the surface, the Movement Race Pro 85 is simply a ski that took the lightweight construction of their podium-topping Race Pro skis and applied those methods to a wider and more friendly touring shape of the Alp Tracks 85. Take a deeper look, though -- ..

Why Crazy Idea named this baselayer the Fahrenheit and not the Celsius is beyond us, but it definitely gets the job done. The super-top is designed with an ergonomic fit using a combination of merino wool and polyamide microfiber to create a comfortable n..
While Movement has made their mark in the ski industry with some of the lightest skis known to man, their focus with the Race Pro Carbon Pole was a bit different. Making one of the most cost-effective race poles on the market was seemingly the focus here...
