From the pages of Issue 5: Black + White
Sunski—We’re not sure how Sunski pulls off recycled frames, replacement lenses, polarized lenses, and heaps of style for under $100, but we’ll take all of it. Actually, make it two pairs, please. We want one for every adventure from this up and coming indie brand out of the Bay Area whose clearly got their fingers on the pulse of the future of the outdoors.
Outdoor Research—Want to stay warm and cozy all winter long? (Who doesn’t, right?) The Blackpowder II Jacket was designed to keep those frigid temps at bay with the weather-warding qualities of Pertex® Shield and insulating superpowers of AdrenaLoft™. Pair the Blackpowder II with the Enigma base layer top and bottom, both made from Blended DriRelease® merino wool and E.C.O. (Environmentally Correct Origins) fabrics, and you’ve got a match made in heaven.
Gregory—Whether it’s a road trip or backcountry ski trip, Gregory has you covered with their all-new Targhee pack. Drawing on 40+ years of experience in pack design and engineering, this pack brings the best of Gregory’s knowledge and expertise to the mountains. The newest generation of this award-winning backcountry ski pack is lighter, stronger, and more user friendly. Yes, please, to all of that.
Yakima—Tired of deciding between fitting a friend or your skis on that long road trip or daily drive up to the mountain? We’ve certainly been there. Rather than put Rachel on our lap, we opted to store our stuff in Yakima’s SkyBox. It fits all of your gear, making the drive so much more comfortable. Extra points for skis that aren’t covered in snow and road gunk when you arrive at your destination.
Coalition Snow—Award-winning, athlete approved, women-owned and operated. Check, check, and check. Not only do we put together this magazine four times a year, we are also the humans behind Coalition Snow. Our skis and snowboards have graced the slopes of mountains all over the world, from our backyard in the Sierra Nevada to the Olympic Games in PyeongChang. You can shop our line at REI and evo, or visit us at our shop in Truckee, CA.
