Fall/Winter Review Preview (and Product Giveaway Winners!)

Over the years I’ve discovered one of the things I enjoy most about blogging is writing gear reviews. While this blog will still host various trip reports and “how-to” articles in the Skill Zone I’m going to start putting more effort into reviewing quality gear. 21 years in the outdoor gear industry and 11 years as a professional mountain guide have definitely given me the opportunity to form opinions on what works, and what doesn’t. Here’s a quick look at some of the products I’ll be reviewing soon:

DPS Wailer 99 Tour 1 Skis

Patagonia Snow Drifter 30L

Patagonia Men's Reconnaissance Jacket

Hyperlite Mountain Gear 3400 Ice Pack

Many of these reviews will also have some great product giveaways. Some of the “schwag” I have to give away includes ice screws, climbing knives, and foot powder. So if you are into reading about outdoor gear, and possibly winning some, consider following this blog. I’ll be posting a gear review at least twice a month.

Congratulations to Jay for winning the coolest climbing knife in the world and Ben for winning the best foot powder on earth as part of the first Outdoor App Review series.

See you in the mountains!
