More From Winter OR

The Outdoor Retailer Winter Market came to an end yesterday with all sorts of new gear appearing for the first time. Most of the stuff won’t end up on our store shelves for several months yet, but you can get a sneak peek at the latest and greatest online now.

The Gear Junkie’s OR corespondent Pat Petschel filed a couple more reports over the weekend. You can find his third and fourth reports on the Daily Dose right now. Some of the gear that he spotlights includes a new jacket from GoLite, a new service from the creators of the SPOT Satellite Messenger, and a new first aid kit designed specifically for women from Adventure Medical Kits. has also continued to post updates from the show in their OR Blog. Some of the gear that has caught their eye includes the Lippi Selk Bag, which I reviewed awhile back, and the Steripen FitsAll Water Filter, a 4 micron cup and funnel designed to filter out all the harmful elements in water found on the trail. There are a number of other nice gear items in their blog as well, so it’s definitely worth surfing by if you’re a gear head like me.

And finally, as I noted last week, the OR New Product Showcase has some cool new gear to show off as well, with everything from new snowboard bindings to boots, and more.
