On the Radar
Reveals, New Launches and Gear
La Sportiva Vapor Float Ski
Adding to their already impressive Vapor line of touring skis, the new La Sportiva Vapor Float comes in at 117 underfoot — providing ample float in deep snow. The skis weigh in at a featherweight 1,400 grams, making them easier to trudge through powder with. La Sportiva utilizes their Carbon Nanotube technology in the construction of the ski, first seen on the Vapor Nano, to keep the ski light without sacrificing torsional rigidity.
Releasing in fall of 2016, Oliberté’s new Mudiko is the Ethiopian brand’s take on the Chelsea boot.
Montane Featherlite Down Pro Pullover
Montane’s new Featherlite Down Pro Pullover features Pertex CS-10 micro baffles that are filled 800-fill HyperDry ECO goose down. This down is water resistant and flourocarbon-free — making it an awesome high-performance and eco-friendly layer.
Adidas Outdoor Terrex Trailmaker GTX
Adidas Outdoor’s newest trail shoe comes packed with technology including a Continental Tire mountain bike tread-inspired sole, a Gore-Tex waterproof breathable bootie and a speed-lace construction.
Primus Winter Gas
Using traditional white gas at brutal winter temps can be problematic, which is why Primus is introducing its Winter Gas. It is an adapted fuel blend that performs well down to -7 degrees Fahrenheit.
Goal Zero Nomad 7 Plus
For 2016, the Nomad 7 gets treated with Goal Zero’s smart charging technology, which automatically adapts wattage output based on a handful of parameters to charge all of your necessary backcountry devices — even your smartphone.
