A favorite at the ski cabin, along with the Jackson ski atlas. It is hard to beat the quality of images and storytelling, which embody adventure but don't give away too many secrets. If you are so lucky have a view out to one of the peaks featured, this can be a really fun backyard adventure guide too :)
We have a few of these, and love for planning trips and use in the field. Somewhat of a hybrid between trip planning apps and a paper map, and great for zones where you are not as familiar. I am excited to try out the topo maps they've put together.
We love these bottles because of the easy-to-grasp lid and push / pull bite valve. They are a little easier geometry to hold than the Salomon flasks. Like any flask, the valve will freeze, so be sure to keep under a few layers. I have yet to have one break by freezing.
Great option for those newer to Backcountry travel (make sure you get the most recent version from AIARE, which has a different look). Waterproof means you should never not take notes, and helpful templates to guide conversations, plans, and observations. Would be nice to have a few more pages, but that’s what blank field books are helpful for once you’ve mastered a form that works well for you
For its magnification, a great, compact option... issue is that for many crystal types and sizes, 10x is insufficient and not much better than just zooming in with phone camera. If you’re bothering bringing a lens, I’d recommend something with 20-30x power so you can see more detail required to understand metamorphosis
