K2 Panoramic Splitboard Kit ($900)

A nice, floaty, setback shape for the pow hunt that includes all the necessary Voile mounting hardware and proprietary K2 skins with a slick mounting system. 

K2 Speed Link Poles ($130)

The re-designed flip-lock lever shrinks theses poles to a mere 13 inches in seconds, making it the smallest splitboarding pole on the market.

 Osprey Variant 52 ($199)

Bred around alpine activity, this lightweight pack features glove-friendly buckles, snow and ice tool storage, and just enough room for extended tours and overnight approaches.

Black Diamond ReVolt Headlamp ($60)

Boasting a whopping 110-lumens, USB charging or AAA battery power, and weather-resistant housing, this little light is potent.

Black Diamond Raven Ultra Ice Axe ($110)

Light and little with a big bite, the Raven Ultra was designed around snow mountaineering with its minimal weight and size.

MSR Reactor 1.0L Stove ($170)

Jeremy Jones originally turned us on to this one for good reason. It’s the most efficient compact stove on the market that performs in a bevy of weather conditions.
