Here at Gear Tested we are always psyched when the ups man (his name is Stan) stops by and leaves us some packages. This week we received some super cool stuff. Here are the pictures and the description from their respective manufacturer.
Please keep in mind that whatever is posted in this post is not a review and purely the description provided by the manufacturer.
La Sportiva Trango Extreme EVO Light GTX- Mountaineering and Ice Climbing Boot
All synthetic, waterproof and insulated; the silver bullet is the perfect lightweight, warm technical mountain boot for ice climbing, mixed climbing and cold weather alpine pursuits. The completely rigid 6-7mm HP3 midsole accepts automatic crampons and is great when standing on edges when out of your crampons. The 3D Flex™ ankle hinge allows side to side movement for better footwork while still providing longitudinal lockout when front pointing.
Swarm Elixir Seat Post Clamp and Bottle Opener
ELIXiR is a quick release seat clamp with an integrated bottle opener. It has a high ratio lever with an ergonomic shape that is easy to lock down. When you lock your seat in place with Elixir, it stays where its told. Elixir is also offered in 5 sizes and 5 anodized colors to fit your bike and ensure that no other bike looks like yours. And it opens your beer. Strong, easy, refreshing.
Swarm Goat Ski Carrier
The Goat is a low-profile inbounds and side country ski pack. When a full pack is too much and shouldering won’t cut it, The Goat is what you need. Groomers or powder? Shredding the bunny slope or launching cliffs? Aunt Edith might dig lift served terrain, but you know better. Real skiing means hiking. What do you do with your skis? Are you going to shoulder them and hike a razor thin spine- risking death every time your skis dig into your shoulder? No. Wear your backcountry pack for a day of in-bounds hiking? No. LetThe Goat schlep your skis for you. Ride the lift, pull The Goat out of your pocket, strap your skis on your back, and climb my son. Climb. The Goat is manufactured in Boulder, Colorado using repurposed materials that are difficult, or impossible to recycle. From used mountain bike tubes to spent climbing rope, The Goat is made using the most eco-friendly materials available today. Buy The Goat- save the planet.
Cloudveil Men’s Koven Jacket
With Cloudburst Stretch™ fabric, a storm-sealing hood and an advanced DWR on the surface, the tried-and-true Koven blends traits of toughness, reliability and protection into one alpinist shell. The waterproof/breathable fabric flexes during ski tours, ice climbs or summit bids as a result of freeing mechanical stretch, while also enduring multiple seasons of wear due to a tough 50-denier surface. Pit zips cool it down when gaining vertical quickly.
Cloudveil Men’s RPK Pants
This daily ski partner to our RPK Jacket charges hard from first untracked run to last après pint. Gore-Tex® Soft Shell, which wears warmer, softer and quieter than old-school three-layer fabrics, also breathes well during on-hill hot laps or short, steep bootpacks. Two thigh pockets hold items you’d rather not lose, slash pockets make it easy to dig for a lighter and elastic tabs resize the waist when adding or subtracting layers under the shell.
