Reveals, New Launches and Gear
The Kicker Tool by DMOS Collective
For backcountry skiers and snowboarders looking to build their own jumps, here’s what DMOS Collective calls the perfect tool. The Kicker Tool is a robust shovel/rake hybrid that’s built with “2.5mm aircraft-quality aluminum.” Designed to both move and sculpt snow, it has a 56.5-inch shaft that’ll hopefully prevent you from destroying your back while shoveling. The whole tool is easily disassembled (it has a telescoping shaft) and can fit in a backpack. Still not sold? Professional Snowboarder Travis Rice brings it with him when he seeks some winter inspiration.
Sightseer Sling Strap by HoldFast Gear
This rustic camera strap can expand to hold lenses and cell phone pouches.
Brunton Lightwave Amp
Brunton’s new Bluetooth-compatible lantern has an integrated speaker system. And if $200 is too steep for you, they sell a smaller $70 option.
K-Swiss x Billy Reid Collection
K-Swiss and Billy Reid have once again collaborated. This time they’ve created an Arlington Shoe, which also comes in a high-top.
Blaze Laserlight Silver
A 13-hour battery life and a 300-lumen LED bulb (which also has a 100 lumen setting) makes this an ideal light for bike commuters.
Burton x Alpha x Undefeated Collection
In this new collection is a trench coat, bomber jacket, one-piece, parka, winter cargo pants and mittens.

What We’re Tasting Now
Tasting tonight: the new Bourbon County Brand Stout from @gooseisland (check the redesigned bottle) and Imperial Blud from @18thstreetbrewery. Recommend #BCBS for a sweet chocolate milkshake ending in vanilla and dark berries, while Imperial Blud brings the cinnamon and plums for something dry and a little unusual. (photo: @chase_pellerin)
