Choosing Tents and Shelters

Unless you’re up for sleeping under the stars, you’ll want a tent for your next camping trip. Tent styles range from small solo shelters to huge, structured tents designed to withstand gale-force winds while mountaineering. You’ll need to consider seasonality (three or four-season) and size when you make your choice.

3-Season Tents
For most campers, 3-season tents are the way to go. Intended for relatively mild conditions, these tents have mesh panels to promote airflow and employ rain flies to keep you dry. Shop 3-Season Tents

4-Season Tents
Designed primarily for winter, 4-season tents feature heavier fabrics and more poles than 3-season tents. This adds weight but is essential for withstanding fierce winds and heavy snow. Shop 4-Season Tents

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.
