If you love the outdoors, most probably you already know that it’s not enough to have a pair of boots and a tent to make the best of everything that it has to offer. In case you would like to broaden the list of your gear, there are some pieces that you should be thinking about.
Black Diamond Halo
Although the new model is very similar to the old one, it does come with some upgrades. For starters, it has a fan to fill it with air that is powered by a lithium polymer battery that can be recharged. This means that you can deploy it several times during your trip.
Salmon Hybrid Jacket
You would be surprised by how interesting this jacket is. It weighs only 120 grams. It comes with a close fitting hood, a stash waist, and waterproof panels. The best thing about it is that you can take it off and wear the jacket as a belt without even having to stop.
BioLite Base Camp Stove
The people who like the outdoors usually are fans of green living also, so this product is just perfect for them. The main point of the stove is that it can turn the heat produced by waste products into electricity. It comes with folding legs, a grill, and output, a light to illuminate the grill and it is also able to store power for you to be able to heat up your midnight snack.
Scarpa Touring Boot
This is the first ever racing boot that comes with the built-in option of turning it into a skiing boot. Unlike the other models, there is no need to make the change manually. If the boot is in the binding, you are ready to go, but once you get it out, you can start walking again.
Faribault Map Blanket
This blanket is made of 15% cotton and 85% merino wool. The first maps were of St. Paul and Minnesota but starting with this year, they’ll be making maps of New York. The interesting thing about the blankets is that they are made by a loom which is operated by a woman who has been working at the factory for 59 years.
Adidas Duramo Cross
This shoe is just perfect for the people who would like to go for runs during the winter. The sole of the shoes is able to grip both snow and ice, not to mention that it is lightweight.
