La Sportiva: Boulder X(Women)La Sportiva tweaked the designs of proven technology from years past to produce the Boulder X. Additional padding underfoot for long approaches and uber sticky rubber add deluxe comfort and performance. The Vibram® Idro-Grip compound stays sticky on every type of rock even when wet. The sticky toe rands offer durable protection. Ideal protection and performance built for the rigors and abuse of the mountains.
Patagonia: Houdini Jacket(Men)We snagged a favorite from our alpine line and tweaked it for runners who live for heart-thumping days in the mountains. The new Houdini uses a highly breathable, weather-resistant 100% nylon ripstop fabric that blocks more wind than the previous version and is even more durable. The slimmed-down fit allows for a baselayer or light midlayers, the hood cinches with a single pull and won't smoosh your ears, and the cording, toggles and elastic cuffs are all trimmer and lighter in weight. Half-elastic cuffs seal the arms, and a drawcord cinches the hem. It stuffs snugly into its own single, small zippered chest pocket, which has a clip-in loop for attaching to your hydration-pack straps. A Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) finish coats the shell and the center-front zipper. With a reflective logo on the left chest and center-back neck.
Patagonia: PowSlayer Jacket(Men)A DWR (durable water repellent) finish increases durability and prevents wet-out in soggy, spitting conditions. The helmet-compatible, 2-way-adjustable hood has a laminated visor for optimal visibility and our Touch Point System, which embeds cord locks into the hood and hem to eliminate loose ends. Watertight, coated Slim Zips reduce weight and bulk; pit zips quickly release your heat. Sleek and low-profile, the powderskirt holds tight for snorkel-deep sessions. This season we tweaked the pocket placement to include two chest pockets (one with a secure media pocket and cable routing), two handwarmers, one bicep for your pass, two internal drop-ins and one internal stash pocket. Includes an embedded RECCO® avalanche rescue reflector.
