Stuff We Like: Next Year's Gear

Here's a selection of a few of the noteworthy launches for Winter 2013-14.

The SIA Snowsports show, where manufacturers unveil their latest creations for shop-buyers and journalists, starts tomorrow in Denver, Colorado. We’ll be there to scope out the most promising gear for next winter–everything from helmets and goggles to skis, boots and packs.

Qwickstand
Keep your socks dry—and your kids happy.

Everyone who does anything outside—skiing, surfing, biking, camping, kayaking, climbing—should have one of these in the trunk. (We like it because we’re tired of wrestling our kids into ski boots while they balance precariously on one foot in the snowy parking lot.) It folds up so the dirty side is always on the inside, a carabiner attaches to a backpack, and it’s insulated so your feet don't get cold. (Race gatekeepers: take note.) Qwickstand is $15, shipped to your door.

When skiers hear about a big winter in Europe, they usually start thinking about heading across the pond to mega-resorts in France to ski powder and eat tasty pastries.

Some apps make travel easier; others make it more fun. These do both.

App: Packing Pro
For: iPhone, iPad
Why: The only thing worse than spending  $200 on a pair of ugly snowpants because you left yours at home is arriving at the airport without your passport. Snuff these possibilities by creating a packing list with the Packing Pro app. Customizable lists based on destination, activity, travel buddies, and any other specifics you add will keep track of what’s in your bag and what’s not.
