Backpacker Shares Their Favorite Tents of 2017.

Autor : Kraig Becker

A few days ago I posted a story from Popular Mechanics that shared their picks for the 7 best camping and backpacking tents. Not to be outdone, Backpacker magazine has also shared their thoughts on the subject, publishing their selection for the 12 best tents of 2017 instead. And since it is time for spring hiking and camping outings, I thought it would be a good time to take a look at their suggestions.

In testing these new shelters, Backpacker called in a large group of testers. All told, 31 people participated in the tent test, spending 247 nights outdoors and hiking 1029 total miles. Along the way, one tester faced 55 mph (88 km/h) winds, while others spent 4 consecutive nights in the rain. One even camped above 11,500 ft (3505 meters) in an effort to put these tents through their paces. In other words, the selection of the top tents was no small affair, and the list is definitely comprised of the best camp shelters available today.

So, which tents made the cut? As usual, I won’t spoil the entire list, but will share a few of interest. For instance, Cotopaxi’s Techo 3 and Inti 2 both earned a spot on Backpacker’s rundown, which is a strong showing for a company that just introduced its first models. REI’s updated Quarter Dome 2 also got the nod, as did the Big Agnes Copper Spur UL2.

This is just a small sampling of the tents that made the cut and there are 8 others for you to discover as you look through Backpacker’s list. Which one works best for you probably depends on your individual needs and budget, but in reality you probably can’t go wrong with any of the options here. Obviously the team of testers really put these tents through the ringer, and as a result you can bet that these are the best new options on the market at the moment.

If you’re ready to go shopping for a new tent this spring, do yourself a favor and give this story a look. Chances are, you’ll discover some new choices you didn’t even consider and you might end up with a better hiking shelter than you first thought.

Outdoor Retailer: Best of Show.

Author : Kraig Becker.

The Winter Outdoor Retailer show went down in Salt Lake City last week with gear manufacturers rolling out all kinds of new items to drool over. There were literally thousands of things to sift through and over the course of the coming months most of them will begin to find their way onto the shelves of our favorite gear stores and into our anxiously waiting hands. To get an idea of what we can expect, here are two list of the “best gear of the show.”

First, The Gear Junkie has Part 1 of his favorite gear from the show posted. He gives kudos to a new cold weather active jacket called the HyBridge Lite which comes to us courtesy of Canada Goose. This looks like a fantastic piece of gear that will arrive in time for next winter. GJ also liked the Speed Climbing knife, endorsed by none other than Ueli Steck himself, which will be making its way to stores from Wenger. GoLite’s new line of ultra-lightweight shoes alls gets a nod and looks like its going to be a real winner as well. Check out the article for the full list of gear items and stay tuned for Part 2 of the Gear Junkie’s picks a well.

Over at the Outside Blog, the Gear Girl, Stephanie Pearson,  weighed in with her favorite items as well. She was especially fond of a new performance winter jacket from Patagonia, as well as tiny, but bright, new headlamp from Light and Motion. She also dug the new lightweight footwear offerings from Salomon and a great looking new women’s vest from Klymit.

Finally, check out this great new bike tool, which Gizmodo found interesting. It is super small and lightweight and comes our way from Pocket Tool. Looks like a great addition to the tool kit on my bike.

Remember, most of this stuff won’t be available for some time yet, so you can start saving now. Looks like even more refined gear in the works.

OR Winter Market Reports Abound.

Author : Kraig Becker.

Yesterday I mentioned that the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market gear show was underway and that we could expect to see a host of reports from the event giving us a glimpse of the goodies we can expect in our favorite gear shops in the months ahead. True to form, we have a number of websites checking in today with the first look at a bunch of new stuff that we won’t actually be able to buy for months yet.

The Adventure Journal also has some great previews up for a bunch of gear from companies like Mountain Hardwear, Marmot, and Camelbak, to name a few. The theme for much of the new gear seems to center around stylish, but functional, gear that uses high tech fabrics and design to make our outdoor experiences all the better. That’s something we can all get behind I think.

First up, the Outside Blog has several reports posted from the show, including a look at the new super-lightweight snow cap from Outdoor Research that promises to be a down jacket for your head. As a fan of OR’s gear, I have to say that that one looks quite warm and comfy.

Next up, Trailspace.com is doing their usual great job of posting from the show floor as well, including a nice sneak peek at the line of outdoor shoes coming form Adidas. Now, I have to admit, when I heard the sneaker company was looking to get into outdoor shoes, I was quite skeptical, but looking at the products themselves, and there are a lot of them, I’m definitely intrigued. They certainly look nice. We’ll have to wait to see how they actually perform once they hit the store shelves. Check out the video below for an early look.

Finally, the Sierra Blogging Post is also in Salt Lake City for all the fun and festivities. They posted a nice Day One Trip Report with a variety of thoughts on the new offerings from several companies, including Adventure Medical Kits and Black Diamond Equipment.

Needless to say, it looks like there is plenty of good stuff in the pipeline once again. I haven’t seen anything that I can’t live without yet, but plenty of stuff I wouldn’t mind having. I’m a sucker for this stuff!

Winter Outdoor Retailer Underway.

Author : Kraig Becker.

The bi-annual Outdoor Retailer show has kicked off in Salt Lake City today with gear companies descending on the town to give us a glimpse of their upcoming product lines. The four day event gives the manufacturers an opportunity to show off what they have in the pipe-line for later in the year, when the new gear will make its way onto store shelves while outdoor enthusiasts gobble up the latest and greatest innovations.

The Gear Junkie posted a “teaser” for the show a few days back, letting us take an early look at what some of the companies will unveil while in SLC. Some of the equipment that earned a spot on the sneak peek list included an ultra-small headlamp from a company called Light & Motion, a new climber’s knife from Wenger that is endorsed by Ueli Steck himself, and new offerings to the Vibram FiveFingers line of barefoot running shoes.

Of course, there will be plenty more to show as well and over the course of the next week or so, we’ll probably be inundated with press releases and gear previews that will not only test your patience while you wait for their release, but may send you out in search of a second job to help pay for all the gear you’ll want to buy. If you’re a gear hound like me, it’s like Christmas came a month later. Well, at least the Christmas wishbook came a month later.

I’ll be sure to post any interesting items that come out of the show, but expect plenty of incremental updates on backpacks, clothing, shoes, and so on as well. Either way, it’s always fun to see what’s coming.

Be part of Great Adventure

(By Tina Sjogren) All stories have a beginning and here is ours. MountEverest.net was set up in 1998, at the dawn of internet and early years of Everest commercial climbing. We had set foot on the mountain already in 1996, when Scott Fischer and Rob Hall were still alive. The year of Into Thin Air would take us on a journey lasting much longer than we had intended.

Everest would not let us leave. It kept us season after season, until we knew its every strength and weakness. It took four years until we were allowed on its top, graduating much more than a summit during the ascent.

They were also the early years of satellite and internet technology. No longer would explorers have to rely on editors’ goodwill to have their story told. Word was liberated to run straight from source to readers. We jumped on that wagon too, transmitting some of the first live dispatches from Everest, building WiFi on the mountain to make it happen.

Following our summit, we changed MountEverest.net from an early Everest expedition blog to a guide for others. “The Dream” kicked off a how-to series for climbers who wished, like us, to give the peak an independent shot. Soon, small news was added. AdventureStats went up, with simple facts to give credit were credit was due.

And then we skied to the Poles. And sailed the Atlantic Ocean. Years before we had crossed central Borneo and many years later we voyaged on the Amazon river with a motley crew of friends. One step had led to the other, guided not by men or pride but wander lust alone. When we reached the last edge, we looked up. There on the dark horizon, our dream of Space was drawn.

Meanwhile, MountEverest.net was added to. Our further explorations gave birth to the Oceans.net and ThePoles.com. Friends’ climbs helped set up K2Climb. Pythom explored independent Space travel. Soon the different websites had grown too wild and a unifying platform was needed. We took the leap and, alas, ExplorersWeb replaced them all.

All those years passed one by one, each a thread of unique shade weaving the blanket of our lives. ExWeb grew to hundreds of thousands of readers, up to a million when human nature was involved, such as in the case of David Sharp. And then we were not just Tom and Tina anymore. Skilled in-house journalists came on board: Angela bred by classic Basque mountaineering; Correne schooled by polar travels, Micke shaped by great walks around the world; Jon covering the Oceans mostly from a boat out at the Nordic sea. Each with their own version of English spelling, yes, but united by uncompromised knowledge of their field.

To ease the work load we tried guest writers but found that to gain respect with our community; exploration stories required skills vast beyond entertaining penmanship. To our waged in-house staff; volunteer contributors such as Karrar in Pakistan were therefore also selected strictly for their specialized knowledge in adventure and climbing. And so there is Brooke in Seattle, alone with the monumental task of keeping the different voices somewhat in line with American grammar as it was intended.

Somewhere along the way, the simple goal we once set up for MountEverest.net had escalated to a complicated and time consuming project. Giving due credit requires a job few mainstream media care to take on, and for good reason. Debunking false claims (not to mention those connected to your advertisers) requires unbribed devotion to the truth, in addition to a delicate and tedious investigative work spanning months, if not years.

Moreover, triumphs and disasters happen 24/7 in our world. Publishing daily news from extreme exploration is akin to covering a never-ending war. Now and then we see adventure blogs spring up with the ambition, all under-estimating the effort involved. In the long run we end up alone again, our news copied wildly by the once inspired.

ExplorersWeb has arrived at the top, yet much more is ahead. 19813 stories after the start-up in New York, ExWeb now must find its financial feet. Time has come to bring in more language editors, update AdventureStats, expand the in-house staff to keep up with an increasing amount of content, and build new technology to connect all the adventurers of our world, spreading their unique spirit, knowledge and ideas.

How do we do it without becoming pet reporters to advertisers and their sponsored athletes? We do it as we have come this far. With your help. 19813 free stories later, ExplorersWeb is today joining the trend among established media to charge for some content.

The dreamers who will not or cannot settle: there is usually only one of us in each small town but globally we make up a pretty big pack. All it takes to keep our story real are a few cents per day.

PayPal of credit card, choose your subscription plan of 3, 6 or 12 months (12 months give 3 months free). You’ll get added features to the usual world adventure news and a portion will go to Himalayan air rescues.

One more thing. Thank you!

Hanesbrands Reveals Super Suit Performance.

Author : Kraig Becker.

Back in the middle of July I posted some information on the preliminary reports of how the Champion Super Suit performed on Everest this past spring. Now, the company has posted its own update with more information on the suit’s performance, as well as the other new products that have been in development for some time.

The Super Suit garnered a lot of attention last fall when it was first announced, as it gave us a glimpse of the possible future for outdoor gear. Made with aerogel, the suit promised to be incredibly thin and light, while remaining as warm as a traditional down suit, and according to this report, it seems that it lived up to those expectations.

The suit was used up to 24,000 feet, just below Camp 3, and in temperatures as low as -40ºF. Expedition leader Jamie Clarke described it as the warmest coat he’d ever worn, although the suit didn’t breathe as well as other products, which is not surprising considering the properties of aerogel. Hansebrand concludes that while the design shows promise, they still have more work to do to before this can become a commercially viable piece of gear.

The rest of the report looks at how the new line of socks, base layers, and shells performed on the mountain as well. This gear is much closer to being a reality, with some of it hitting store shelves as early as this year.  You can read the entire report by clicking here.
