For Fall 2021, Mountain Hardwear is overhauling much of its snow lineup, including the Boundary Ridge GORE-TEX Jacket + Bib. For on-piste skiers/riders who also favour sidecountry glades and bowls, this combo is full of versatile features. We like the Jacket’s big internal drop-pockets to stow skins, maps, gels, or a backup beanie.
We also like the Bib’s stretch fabric on the upper section, giving you that extra mobility when you’re fiddling with your bindings. And both pieces have a soft-but-tough tricot backing that adds more warmth than your average shell layer.
In addition, we tried out the new Redeye 45L Travel Pack.
Made of recycled Cordura nylon, it’s carry-on–friendly, with tuckable shoulder straps and tuckable hip-belt for when we’re flying again. Laptop compartment and full back-panel access make this mid-sized pack very user-friendly and applicable for just about anything.
These days we use it as a family-hiking daypack and it feels bottomless for all those extra layers, snacks, water bottles, first-aid kits and anything else that will make everyone’s afternoon on the trail a lot more enjoyable.
