How to Choose a Technical Shell

Technical jackets are designed to keep you dry in wet weather, breathe away sweaty moisture, and fit comfortably under a climbing harness or backpack. Look for a technical jacket that's not only lightweight but also compressible. Ounces equal pounds, and pounds equal pain. Simplicity is key—extra features can be handy, but they add weight and bulk.

Waterproof Rating
Plan for the worst when you're looking for jacket that you'll wear into the mountains. You want a jacket with fabric that boasts a high waterproof rating (20K+) and a highly breathable membrane, ample durability, and a construction that includes fully taped or welded seams.
Related Content Waterproof Technologies & Materials
Features
For backpacking, you don't need many bells and whistles. If you're climbing, then you'll want good wrist closures and a helmet-compatible hood to seal out a storm.
Related Content How to Choose a Technical Shell
Fit
Because these jackets have to fit comfortably when you're wearing backpack or climbing harness, they tend to have a slim to regular fit. Be careful not to choose a fit that's so slim or a size so small that you can't add extra baselayers or an insulating layer. Shop Slim Fit Technical Shells Shop Regular Fit Technical Shells

How to Choose an Alpine Ski Boot

The Main Line of Communication Between You and Your Skis

 

In contrast to an alpine touring or telemark boot, an alpine boot is designed almost entirely around resort-based and inbounds skiing. Honestly assess your ability level and your interests before you start shopping for a boot. Ability level and interests dictate where and what you ski, and ultimately, the type of boot you’ll need. When choosing a ski boot, pay attention to fit, flex, and last width. These factors will help you maximize the likelihood of finding a well-fitting boot without stepping foot in a store. Secondary considerations, such as liner, buckle configuration strap, footbed, and boot sole features will come later in the buying process.

Fit:

A boot that fits well will hold your foot firmly and encourage ample control, circulation, and reduce the chance of blister-causing heel slippage. Ski boots come in a variety of lengths, measured in Mondo sizing (insole length in centimeters), forefoot widths (measured in millimeters), and cuff height and width (based on gender or manufacturer).

Flex:

Flex refers to how hard it is to flex the boot forward. Aggressive or heavier skiers will want a stiff boot (120-130+) to handle high speeds and arduous terrain. Beginners or smaller skiers best to start with a softer boot (80-100) and intermediate skiers may prefer a boot with a flex around (100-110).

Interest:

Alpine boots come in three flavors: park and pipe, alpine touring, and alpine. Park boots tend to be a little softer and more forgiving, alpine touring boots are made with lighter materials and offer a walk mode, and alpine boots balance performance and comfort for skiing inbounds at the resort.
