The Best Winter Gear on Outdoor Prolink
We’re counting down the days until the mountains are thoroughly coated in the fluffy white stuff. In the meantime, we’re drooling over the hottest gear of the season and doing this:
We’ve been getting down on some Pumpkin Ale from Upslope which is, by the way, freakin’ delicious. It’s also made with baby bear pumpkins… not sure what they are, maybe they look like baby bears??
Anyway, back to the gear.
Below are the products we are most excited to play with, available on Outdoor Prolink now:
Made with classic Osprey precision, the Kode 42 was designed for ski/snowboard mountaineering, hut-to-hut trips and ski patrol use with plenty of storage for long days outside.

One of our pros and AMGA guide Chris Marshall tested the BC Link for us. He says, “The BC Link is a no-frills, functional and well-built unit. BCA has done an excellent job making it user-friendly and bombproof. I will be using these units when I ski guide this winter, as it’s easy to give one to my guests.” Read the full review
This ‘downhill & uphill’ goggle has gotten plenty of buzz this season and for good reason. It’s the first goggle that offers adjustable venting so that the lenses doesn’t fog up when you skin.
It also got all these awards, so yeah, it’s awesome.

Outdoor Research Women’s Sonata Hoody
This hoody arrived at our office this fall and we immediately fell in love. The goose down is extra soft, it has plenty of pockets, and the baffles are elegantly placed for a perfect fit. This is a great piece for inbounds layering on cold days, and is super-packable for extra warmth in the backcountry.
Flylow created a lightweight but burly hardshell that’s perfect for long backcountry days, but you might find yourself wearing it all year-around backpacking, biking and hiking.
This super fat ski is what powder dreams are made of.
This insulating jacket may change the way you layer. The Alpine Start says it’s “Absolutely phenomenal, and by far the most versatile piece I’ve used in the Mountains. Seriously, get this jacket. It’s not just good, it’s perfect.” Read the full review.
If you need to carry a beacon, you might as well carry the smallest and lightest one out there. BCA says, ‘The Tracker3™ has the Tracker2’s ease of use and instantaneous real-time display–and it’s 20 percent smaller and lighter. T3 is the thinnest multi-antenna transceiver available. Three antennas and no-nonsense multiple burial searching.’
