MOUNTAIN LIFE - Blue Mountains | Fall 2018

94 ML BLUE FALL 2018 BURTON KILEY DOWN JACKET The women's Kiley is cut from a 100% polyester plain weave fabric coupled with the fire-stoking performance of 80/20 RDS (Responsible Down Standard) Duck Down Insulation. While you ponder the virtues of this versatile layer, keep in mind its Bluesign-approved materials prioritize people and the planet. And the Living Lining tech adapts to ups and downs in activity for all-day comfort. Burton Flagship Store (98 Ossington Avenue, Toronto 647.361.4400) FORSAKE PATCH This high-top, hiking-style boot uses waterproof leather and a gusseted tongue to keep water and debris out. Their 'Peak-to-Pavement' outsole has directional lugs for grip on loose terrain, while the outer lugs give traction on hard surfaces. A waterproof breathable internal membrane keeps everything dry and comfortable. Let’s not forget the most important part: these hiking boots actually look cool. GSI OUTDOORS GOURMET POUROVER JAVA SET With a few cranks of the ceramic compact coffee grinder, you can unlock all the flavour of fresh coffee no matter where you are. The Gourmet PourOver Java Set’s expanding silicone brewing cone makes delicious coffee and collapses down to just 1”. Simply set the filter on top of your favourite container, place any brand of #4 filter, fill with grounds and water—and voila, an eye-opening cuppa. PATAGONIA STEEL FORGE DENIM WORKWEAR Patagonia’s latest Workwear denim is a rip-resistant 92% organic cotton/8% Dyneema blend. Fifteen times stronger than steel, Dyneema fiber gives these natural-indigo-dyed work denims exceptional strength for the most punishing tasks. Job-ready features include double-fabric knees with bottom openings to accommodate knee pads, and wide legs to fit over boots . PADDLING NORTH Audrey Sutherland—author of Hawaiian odyssey Paddling My Own Canoe — begins Paddling North with her decision, at age 60, to undertake a solo voyage along the southeast coast of Alaska in an inflatable kayak. This is a memoir remarkable for its quiet confidence and acute natural observation, and a compilation of Sutherland's first two annual trips through the Inside Passage. Her lifelong philosophy, "go simple, go solo, go now," is highlighted in this unique and inspiring kayaking adventure. KEEN KIDS’ TARGHEE Taking the same lean, tough, and gritty design as KEEN’s award-winning adult hiker, the Kids’ Targhee collection is built to take active girls and boys further. With cushioned support, weatherproof performance, and all-terrain traction, they'll attack every trail with confidence. Available in a mid and low waterproof style, and a low non-waterproof.
