Today in Gear: Backcountry’s Winter Gear Guide, an Affordable American Workwear Brand & More


December 10, 2019 Briefings By

Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at tig@gearpatrol.com

Here at Gear Patrol, we have a deep appreciation not only for fine gear, but the process of rigorously testing it as well. Backcountry shares this fondness, and the brand has used its expertise to put all of the equipment and accessories it offers to the test — developing a robust guide on what works best in the process. The guide includes the best skis, snowboards, outerwear and other accessories to get you prepared for the harshest ski conditions. The guide features state-of-the-art equipment like the Smith I/O Mag Chromapop Goggles that will help you see more clearly, or gear like the Salomon QST 106 Skis and the Burton Flight Attendant snowboard that will help you charge harder and faster. Take it from the experts, and choose the equipment that’s right for you — and save 20% with the code GEARPATROL20.
