Outside Magazine’s 2013 Gear Of The Year At Tahoe Mountain Sports

Friday, May 31st, 2013

outside mag gear of the year

 

 

We found more than twenty Gear Of The Year winners in the 2013 Outside Buyer’s Guide that are sold at Tahoe Mountain Sports. It feels good to be reassured we’re carrying the gear you want the most! Here’s a quick rundown of what’s in the mag and in our store.

 

The following products were chosen by Outside Magazine’s team of testers and may or may not reflect the true opinions of TMS employees.

 

 

 

 

Best Multi-Day Backpack

Deuter Aircontact Pro 70 + 15

 

The Deuter Aircontact Pro 70+15 was deemed the “best for the heftiest loads” and “most breathable big pack” because its padding and fit system work so well and provide great comfort while ventilating to keep you cool.

Osprey Xenith 88 and Women’s Xena 85
The best all around backpacking backpack that holds tons of gear and is featuristic, plus hugs the hips very well. The heat-moldable hip belts come standard, as with any Osprey backpacking pack, and are great for hauling larger loads.

 

Best Day Pack or Overnight Pack

The North Face Casimir 36 Backpack is the “best pack for overnights and all day adventures”. With minimalist features, a fast and light design, and one of the most customizable hip belts and torso lengths on the market, this ultralight daypack is perfect for overnight jaunts or bagging peaks from basecamp.

Best Backpacking Tents

The best Tent Of The Year is The North Face Mica FL 2 – a three-season, two-person ultralight backpacker. It weighs less than 3-lbs, sets up in a jiffy and breathes incredibly well. Vertical sidewalls create more comfortable living space and, according to testers, the Mica FL 2 has “the easiest doors to climb in and out of”. Click here to watch the video.

 

 

 

Best Backpacking Sleeping Bag

The Nemo Nocturne 30 spoon-shaped sleeping bag is the best bag yet for those of us who sleep on our sides and want the most comfortable sleep possible in the backcountry. The curves mimic our body shape, a water-resistant footbox protects the insulation from condensation on your tent wall, and the bag only weighs two pounds.
