We like to get our hands on new gear early, and short of theft and corporate espionage one of the best ways to do that is by checking out Outdoor Retailer, a biannual product show for retailers, manufacturers and other industry pros. We were on hand at the Winter Market 2014 show at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, UT, where every brand with a stake in the great outdoors showed off their future cold-weather wares. Immediately notable was all the wilderness-ready booze paraphernalia — from Stanley, Vapur, MSR and more — but of everything we touched, tasted and saw, this gear stood out most.
