While a lot of cool new outdoor gear was released in 2017, these seven items are the ones that most caught our attention!

Optimized for outdoor adventuring such as thru-hiking, backpacking, packrafting, climbing, day hiking, skiing, etc. The Shell ensures that no matter where you go, you’re covered... When the weather rolls in, get The Shell out. When the weather rolls out, simply pack it away, stuff it into its self-contained pocket and/or clip it to your harness."
