How to Choose Between Sleeping Bags

Three and four-season sleeping bags come in two varieties: down insulated and synthetic insulated. Each insulation offers a distinct set of advantages and disadvantages, so it’s important to do some research before you pick your sleeping bag. Temperatures, weather, and sleeping style are all considerations when making your choice.

Down is the lightest, warmest, and most packable form of insulation. However, down loses some of its insulating properties when wet and tends to be more expensive than synthetic insulation. Shop Down Sleeping Bags

Synthetic insulation can better handle wet conditions and usually has a lower price tag than down, but it's also bulkier and heavier. Take this into consideration when planning long trips. Shop Synthetic Sleeping Bags

How to Choose Ski Gloves

How to Choose Ski Gloves

Skiing isn't just about the skis. From your helmet to your ski socks, every piece of clothing has a specific and important function. Gloves (or mittens) aren’t an exception. It’s vital that you protect your hands, whether it's cold, wet, or some combination thereof. Depending on the weather you routinely encounter outside, you'll want to consider the following features when you choose what to put on your hands: (a) glove versus mitten; (b) insulation; and (c) technical features like a waterproof membrane or fabric. Why risk frostbitten fingers and the loss of fine-motor skills when so many hand-warming options exist?

Gloves vs. Mittens:

Gloves give you the dexterity of five-fingered freedom. Mittens win when it comes to layering (over glove liners) and added warmth from skin-on-skin contact between your fingers.


Although it’s rare that you’d find a ski glove without it, insulation offers much needed warmth that’ll keep you from calling it a day early. Down offers the best warmth-to-weight ratio, while synthetic insulation offers relatively rapid drying times.


During the winter, wetness is just as dangerous as the cold. Look for a glove or mitten with a waterproof breathable shell or internal membrane a waterproof fabric coating.
