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 Buy Snowboard Bindings

Snowboarding Is Not a Crime

A snowboard binding serves as your boot-to-board connection, and choosing the right binding means the difference between having fun and feeling furious. Most bindings are comprised of a highback, adjustable ratcheting straps, and a baseplate that’s either four-hole or Channel compatible. Additionally, every binding model is offered in a variety of sizes—it’s vital that your boot size matches the binding size. Also, keep in mind that every binding has a flex rating from soft to stiff (rather from 1 to 5) and most bindings are designed for park and freestyle, all-mountain riding, or big-mountain riding. Stiffness is often a matter of personal preference and a reflection of the terrain you ride.


Every snowboard binding is rated on a one-to-ten flex scale. Aim for the comfort and forgiveness of a softer flex (1-3) if you’re a beginner or like a more flexible feel for riding park, and shoot for the control and support of a stiffer flex (3-5) if you’re strong, experienced, or into riding big, fast lines.


Make sure to buy a binding in a size that matches the size of your boot, otherwise the straps won’t hold your boot correctly. Similarly, if you have a board with 4x4 mounting pattern or Channel compatibility, you need a binding with the same.

Riding Style:

Ride park? Look for a softer binding with some shock-absorption built in. Ride the resort? Look for a binding with a strap design you’re happy with (you’ll be using it a lot). Ride big mountain? Go stiff, strong, and (probably) expensive.
