Winter Gear Staff Picks for 2010

By: 0 Comments

The Water Stone staff is in fine form in this video…we’ve got Vince crossdressing (again) and Kenny showing that it is possible to be a video star even when hungover…jeez…but what great ideas we have for you guys!

Sorel Nak Nek and Fairbanks.  This is the best shoe we have brought into the shop in years and it is selling like crazy.  Waterproof upper, warm liner, think: big, beefy slippers for all day stomping around in the slush.

Evolv XY.  The ever-expanding shoe company Evolv now lets you design your own shoe.  Don’t be scared; express yourself.

The North Face Atlas Triclimate.  “The most versatile jacket ever” sez Micah.  Waterproof breathable shell with a zip in fleece liner mean you are ready for anything.

Friksn Guerrilla Hoodie.  All of us in the shop believe this is the best hoodie in the business.  Only Vince would think to pair it with the Patagonia Barely There Bra…

Vew-Do Indy Balance Board.  If you don’t have a balance board, get a clue and get one–crazy good tool for making you better at everything you do.  And it is a great way to feel less worthless when you are wasting time watching stupid tv…

Black Diamond Sprinter Headlamp.  The latest, greatest from BD eliminates the perennial headlamp problem–dead batteries–by offering a slick recharging system.  Never be left in the dark again!  Kenny, our resident head lamp freak, deems this the best thing to hit the market in years.

Camp Quickdraw Value Pack.  No one can spot a bargain like our resident dirtbag Micah.  Great draws, great price, grab ’em and go.

Black Diamond Mercury Mitt.  Gloves are for macho poseurs.  These are the mitts for those who really want to be comfortable no matter how cold the temps get…

Mountain Hardwear Ultra Lamina Sleeping Bag.  The synthetic bag that thinks it’s down.  A truly amazing breakthrough in synthetic insulation–really compressible.
