Cy Whitling reviews the Hinterland Maul 121 for Blister

2020-2021 Hinterland Maul 121

Cy Whitling reviews the Beringia Altai Over Hoody for Blister

Beringia Altai Over Hoody

When it comes to stop-and-start activities like ski touring, a big puffy jacket can not only be nice, but also extremely important if things go wrong in the backcountry. We’ve been using the Beringia (the North American branch of Teton Bros) Altai Over Hoody a lot this season, and think it makes for a great insulation layer. Check out our full review.

Cy Whitling reviews the Roxa R3 130 T.I. for Blister

2021-2022 Roxa R3 130 T.I.

The Roxa R3 130 was a pretty good AT boot, but we think the updated 19/20 version is a great one. If you’re looking for a boot that you can use inbounds and in the backcountry, the new R3 130 is worth a look.

2021-2022 J Skis The Vacation

The J Skis Vacation used to basically be a J Skis Metal without the metal. But this year, the updated Vacation is an entirely different ski ... and we’d argue that it is better in virtually every regard. Check out our full review of this playful all-mountain ski.

2021-2022 Atomic Bent Chetler 120
