Voile SuperCharger Ski Review As ski season approaches, we’ve got a few more ski reviews to share. First up is the Voile SuperCharger.

Outdoor Research Trailbreaker Pants

Outdoor Research Trailbreaker Pants Review As the song goes, “you gotta get up to get down” and breaking trail tests more than just your legs; it tests your outerwear, too.  Backcountry ski pants need to breathe while you go up and protect from the elements on the up and down. I’ve long been an advocate of softshell materials for backcountry skiing… Read More

Osprey SnowKit Duffel The joys of air travel for skiing – it’s a mix of anticipation for the adventure to come and the possibility that your gear may not arrive when you do.

Black Diamond Cirque 30 Backpack Review

Black Diamond Cirque 30 Pack Review Finding the right ski touring backpack is a combination of balancing personal preference, primary use and fit. Personally, I’ve long subscribed to the less-is-more philosophy when weighing design options and choosing a ski touring pack. The fewer zippers, buckles and accessory pockets, the better in my opinion. The clean top-loading style of the Black Diamond… Read More
