Preview: 7Mesh Revelation Jacket

New company, new jacket. The 7mesh Revelation ain’t cheap, but the rainy-day warrior is made from Gore’s top-level water and windproof material….and it’s built to last. Here are our initial thoughts on it.

Tested: Gore Fusion Tool Jacket

12.04.2014

Winter generally comes in two basic flavors: clear and cold or cloudy and wet. Gore’s Fusion Tool jacket is the right bit of kit for that first kind of winter day. Even when the mercury is well below the freezing mark, the WindStopper-equipped Fusion Tool is downright toasty.

Palmer’s Picks: Fix It Sticks

11.19.2014

As a mechanic, I'm always on the lookout for rad tools. Last year I saw these Fix It Sticks on a Kickstarter campaign and had to give them a try. Since then, my pack has gotten a lot lighter.

First Impressions: Bern Prescott

11.11.2014

Pretty much everything Bern touches turns to cool so when I found out the lifestyle-inspired skate/snow brand was branching into women’s mountain-bike helmets, I had to have a look.

Long-Term Test: CamelBak M.U.L.E. NV

11.06.2014

I’ve been humping the CamelBak M.U.L.E. NV hydration pack around in the rain and mud for a year. It’s seen the inside of my washing machine more than a few times and wound up being my go-to pack this past season. Here's how it fared.

Palmer’s Picks: Bertucci A-2T Field Watch

11.05.2014

Watches are stupid. Most of them are heavy, uncomfortable, bulky things that sit there on your wrist and weigh it down. And for what? Just to tell you what time of day it is? No thanks, I'll pass.

Trail tested: F-Stop Kenti camera bag

09.21.2014

Over the course of the last year I’ve put the F-Stop Kenti through its paces and haven’t seen any noticeable signs of wear. The straps and zipper are functioning as they did on the first day.

First Look: Bell Super 2R helmet

09.12.2014

Now the Bell Super 2R isn’t directly marketed as an enduro-specific helmet, but one look at it, and well, it’s the perfect enduro helmet. Why carry two helmets, when you can carry one?

Tested: Troy Lee Designs A1 Drone

09.11.2014

Troy Lee Designs spent three years fine-tuning this helmet. That sounds ludicrous, until you strap it on. It's not perfect, but the A1 is damn close.

09.10.2014

The perusing continued on the second day of Outdoor Demo, with still more products to be seen and more gadgets to be photographed. Fresh shoes, redesigned brakes and of course, innovative electronics were all part of the fun in the south Nevada desert.

Interbike 2014: Gear roundup day 1

09.09.2014

For the better part of a week, Interbike is a hustle of bodies moving about, taking quick glances at the latest gadgets of the cycling world and exchanging business cards, and the majority of this happens under great, giant florescent bulbs and artificially cooled air. But for the first two days of the week, the convention attendees head south to Boulder City for the Outdoor Demo. This is what I stumbled upon, during our perusing on first day of the demo days:
