Review: The Arc’teryx Acrux SL

The Arc'teryx Acrux SL Approach Shoes

Purpose-built, ultralight approach shoes

Arc’teryx has long been a name associated with a meticulous, almost obsessive attention to detail in the craftsmanship of their apparel and gear, so when they introduced a line of footwear for the Spring 2015 season, I was interested in seeing what exactly they were planning to bring to the table.

Product Review: Rab Maverick

The Rab Maverick is an awesome new rain jacket featuring a new eVent DVL (Direct Venting Lite) membrane.

The new eVent DVL membrane takes the same proprietary waterproof ePTFE (expanded polytetrafluoroethylene) used in previous eVent membranes and utilizes it in a 2.5-layer construction – cutting out some noticeable weight.

A 3-layer construction starts, just … Read more >>
