Today in Gear, Outdoor Retailer Winter: January 22, 2015

The newest gear unveiled at the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2015 includes Oatmeal in a squeezy pouch, new additions to La Sportiva’s winter line, Polartec’s new synthetic fabric and more.



Black Diamond Mission Shell
This versatile ski jacket should make updating your skiing gear a bit less of a headache. With its Gore-Tex shell you’ll be all set for warmth, its modern fit will make layering a cinch, and “Cohaesive” technology makes for equalized hood and waist adjustment with one cord, so that you can focus on the slopes instead of fussing over the fit. blackdiamondequipment.com

Range Magazine Issue 2
If Gear Patrol’s offerings aren’t enough for you (we won’t take it personally), check out RANGE Magazine‘s second issue, available for free online and for $10 in print. As per their daily offerings, the new issue features artwork and photo essays alongside editorial content on outdoor lifestyle and market trends. $10

Munk Pack Portable Oatmeal
Know what could really use the Go-Gurt treatment? Oatmeal. Luckily, the folks at Sage Foods have heard your inarticulate cries for more food that doesn’t require teeth. Munk Pack is whole-grain oatmeal in a squeezy pouch, coming in three flavors: apple quinoa cinnamon, blueberry acai flax and raspberry coconut. As you’d expect, Munk Packs are non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan products. $15 for a 6-pack

Clean Energy Patch
The folks at XEP decided that Sage Foods didn’t go far enough. “Keep the mouth out of things entirely!” they said: thus, the Clean Energy Patch. Like a nicotine patch, this product transmits about 35mg of all-natural caffeine, Guarana and cacao through the skin, providing a consistent “HUM” of energy over 8 hours rather than the energy spike associated with caffeinated drinks. $30

Polartec Power Wool
The latest in fabrics engineered for optimum comfort and strength comes from Polartec. Power Wool is a bi-component fabric combining merino wool and synthetic fibers to maximize wicking, breathability, odor resistance and durability. The fabric is designed to accommodate warm and cool weather; looks like Superdry and Uniqlo HEATTECH’s competition just warmed up. polartec.com

LEKI BlueBird Vario Pole
LEKI’s upcoming trekking pole is built for versatility: with an adjustable length (110-140cm), a thermo-foam mid grip and two sets of interchangeable baskets, the pole will suit any level of climber, any time of year. And it’s durable: its upper shaft is aluminum, while the lower shaft is made from high-modulus carbon fiber. leki.com
