Review of Gordini Wragell 3 Finger Glove W/ Buffalo Leather

Published by under Gear,Reviews

So gloves are always an issue for me. For a while there I couldn’t get any pair to last more than a season. They just didn’t last going up against the abuse that backcountry skiing could dish out. Warmth is also an issue. Finding a tough pair of gloves that can stand up to the […]

Ryders Eyewear All Plank Goggles Review

Published by under Gear,Reviews

So I thought I’d do this review a little differently than the way I normally do these reviews. This review will be more like a diary of thoughts written over the remainder of the season from early February till the late spring. However if I’m using these in spring then I’m pretty sure I made […]

TopoMaps iPhone App Review

Published by under Reviews,Tech

This is a great app to take with you on your trips in the backcountry. I always bring my iPhone with me as a safety precaution. Since I already have my phone apps such as this come along too. There are certain benefits to this app that rule over paper maps. Paper maps also come […]

Black Diamond Guide Glove

Published by under Gear,Reviews

These gloves rock. They remind me of those old Reusch gloves that were so bomber. However these gloves have some features that take it to the next level.┬áThe feature I love the most is the soft fabric on the thumb perfect for nose wipes in the cold. They also have a removable liner for spring […]
