Ben Rabinowitz's Bio

Yet another east coast transplant, woot woot! I've been out west for 3 years now and loving the moutnain west.

I like to climb, ski, mountain bike, camp, and hike. I also like to fly fish but go out maaaaybe once a season.

I'm excited to work with you and make your Backcountry.com experience even better. I'm here for anything you need; gear questions, orders, returns.... I do it all!

I also really like firetrucks. And burritos. And cookies.

It only took one day of skiing for me to fall in love with this jacket. No matter the conditions I was comfortable and ready to shreddy. The asym zippers and venting keeps a super soft fleece on my face (no more plucked beard hairs) and my goggles fog-free. The flannel backing gives just an extra touch of warmth and the stretch Gore fabric keeps me dry and comfortable. I absolutely love the freeride fit as it allows me to easily layer underneath without hindering my mobility or steez. It's definitely a big jacket but not XXL-Tall Tee status; I'd size down if you prefer a trimmer/athletic fit. The most underrated feature is probably one of my favorites; the over-glove thumb loops are friggin' rad. Pop them on over your gloved thumbs, clink your poles, and you're ready to send it.

I tout myself as someone who always "runs warm" in the backcountry but maaaaybe I'm not as hot as I thought? I wore these skitouring last winter and holy crap I was instantly more comfortable and did NOT want to take them off.
Super easy to don and doff (just drop your pants!) and they have plenty of stretch and warmth to keep you comfortable.
I'll be wearing these on really cold days in the backcountry, at the resort, belaying during the cold shoulder season, and shoot maybe even around the house in winter.

These things are seriously warm, comfortable, and I didn't know I needed them until I wore them. Friggin' awesome!

They fit pretty well in the waist/thighs but maybe are a tad bit long? Not an issue, don't interfere with boots at all, but just a note.

I'm absolutely in love with this jacket. It's warm, breathable, and all-too-freakin'-comfortable. A lot of synthetic insulation jackets are toting stretch and breathable insulation, but they still don't have great stretch or great breathability. The Wolverine Cirque has stretchy face fabric, stretch insulation, and a *full* backpanel of stretchy fleece so this jacket really moves with you. The full fleece backpanel makes this jacket super breathable as well, it will definitely keep you comfortable on the skintrack.

Serioulsly love this thing and will be my go-to midlayer for pretty much everything

Also, the thumbholes on this jacket are ��

I really like these gloves for lapping the backcountry. The leather is super soft and supple so it makes it easy to adjust boots and bindings even with the gloves on. The cuffs are low profile and super secure so they work with all your layers.

They're not the warmest glove out there, and that's a good thing! My hands stay warm, but don't get sweaty, so I'm always comfortable. These things are killer and at $65 are a great addition to your backcountry kit.
