More Gear Coverage From The 2013 Outdoor Retailer Winter Market


Still haven’t gotten your fill of gear coverage from the just-completed 2013 Outdoor Retailer Winter Market? Then you’re in luck, because there are still a few sneak-peeks to be had, including part two of the the Gear Junkie`s Best in Show Awards and another video from the gang at Off Yonder.

In his extended picks for the best new gear on display at OR, the Gear Junkie shares some really interesting stuff that will be appearing on store shelves later this year. For instance, he has the scoop on an amazing new sleeping bag from Sea to Summit that is rated for 46ºF/8ºC, weighs just 12.3 ounces (348 grams) and packs down to the size of a “large apple.” We also get a preview of a new modular backpack system from Boreas that adapts to the needs of the user by adding or removing the components you need for the adventure you’re about to embark on. Other new products include new split toed running shoes from several companies, a new ski suit from Salomon and innovative insulating fabrics from Polartec that will be in a variety of jackets by next winter.

Finally, the video below gives us another great, first-hand look at some of the gear that was on display, including products from Keen, Gregory Packs, Eton and more. It’s the third and final video produced by Cameron Martindell from Off Yonder and if you’re the kind of person who can’t get enough gear news, you’ll definitely enjoy it.
