Today in Gear: A More Functional Fleece, Throwback Hiking Boots and More

The best way to catch up on the day’s most important product releases and stories.


New & Noteworthy Releases


Ridgemont Outfitters Monty Hi Boot
Hiking boots that function well out on the trail all day and then look good in the bar later are hard to find. The Monty Hi boot strives to fix that. Inspired by the classic 80’s style hiking boot, Ridgemont slimmed down the look and elevated the style with waterproof oiled suede. The hi-density rubber lugged sole prevents slips, and the heel stabilizer works well over rock scrambles. Best of all, it’s just $99. — Meg Lappe

Glenmorangie Spìos Private Edition Single Malt Whisky
The newest addition to Glenmorangie’s Private Edition series, Spìos (Scots Gaelic for “spice”), was matured entirely in ex-rye casks. While distilleries have used ex-rye casks to finish single malt expressions (see: Johnnie Walker’s Select Casks Rye Cask Finish), Glenmorangie claims this to be the first time a single malt has aged in them exclusively. Straw gold in color, Spìos (SRP $99) carries notes of toffee, baking spices and vanilla, finishing with hints of fudge and citrus. — Jack Seemer

Black Diamond Ultralight Ice Screw
For winter 2018/2019, Black Diamond has created the lightest ice screw, ever. Ice screws, used for crucial weight-bearing during ice climbs, are commonly made of titanium and steel. Black Diamond has figured out how to fuse a short steel tip to an aluminum shaft to reduce the weight of the screw by 45 percent without compromising strength or durability. And as with all climbing equipment, the lighter it is, the better. — Tanner Bowden

Mission Workshop Bosun Fleece
Mission Workshop’s Bosun fleece combines technical performance materials with a streetwear-inspired silhouette. The Bosun features New Zealand merino wool and four-way stretch nylon panels on the shoulders and forearms for a bit of extra durability. A removable hood, a deep interior pouch pocket and two zippered outer pockets provide enough functionality to make the Bosun part of any daily kit. — Tanner Bowden
