WomensMovement.com – Featuring Ariel 75 – November 4, 2014

November 4, 2014

There’s nothing quite like loading your pack with brand new, shiny, sparkly gear with the complete certainty that in five months it’ll be trashed beyond recognition. While it seems like the whole world is gearing up for ski season, I’ve spent the last six months amassing a pile of equipment that would impress even the most extreme gear heads.

WomensMovement.com – Featuring Ozone 22” – October 1, 2012

Even when we crammed 46 liters’ worth of stuff into this sleek, four-and-a-half pound bag, it was still easy to bench press into the overhead bin.
