Outdoor Gear News You Can Use

Outdoor Gear News You Can Use


As you sit around the house bloated with turkey and stuffed with stuffing, take some time to catch up on all the latest news from your favorite outdoor vendors. Black Diamond talks with Exum Guide Bill Anderson about the extended column test for avalanche safety, quizzes climbers on the best way to rack your gear, and tells you dirtbags how to heal your nasty fingers. Got a Pieps? Learn how to check it. And while you’re metabolizing that pumpkin pie, you might as well pull a little maintenance duty and evaluate your gear for safety.

Not to be left out, Petzl brings the flowchart to choosing the right crampon, Arc’Teryx showcases their down technology complete with a video on how to wash down, and even The Man has something for you; check out the new Global Mountain Explorer from USGS to plan your next epic. Happy Thanksgiving to all, and to all a good climb!
