We’re on the ground at Winter Outdoor Retailer 2017, scouting the best new gear coming from the outdoor industry this season. Ahead of announcing our annual picks for Best in Show, we’re taking a moment each day of the show to share some our favorite items from the show floor.
2017 Collection by Goldwin
Goldwin, known for its attention to details and urban-friendly styling, is making a big push into the US, following in the footsteps of Veilance, Arc-teryx’s masterful high-end minimalist collection.
S1 Carbon Pro by Scott
Scott’s newest ski bindings move the lock-down clamp from the back of the heel to the top of your foot. It’s more flexible than a standard touring boot, yet just as secure.
Zero G Down Jacket by Rab
A new city-to-mountain down jacket from a UK-born brand uncompromisingly dedicated to technical innovation.
Widemouth Collection by Miir
The bottles in MiiR’s new wide-mouth collection features the same quality vacuum-insulated design, each with a thin lip and easy-drinking wide-diameter mouth.
Alpha IS Jacket by Arc’teryx
On the back of the successful Firebee AR, Arc’teryx announced the Alpha IS, a synthetically insulated belay jacket with a Gore-Tex shell.
Stretchdown DS Hooded Jacket by Mountain Hardwear
Further building out the StretchDown line, the new StretchDown DS is the warmest and stretchiest jacket of the bunch.
Targhee EXP Boot by Keen
Keen has introduced a new iteration of their famed Targhee boot designed to enhance performance out on the trail. Thankfully, the shoe’s city-friendly styling and fit profile are still the same.
