The Barefoot-Running Revolution
Vibram 5 fingers main
Considering the latest running trend? Some experts weigh in on the benefits.

 

“Barefoot training” and “minimalist” shoes are making waves in athletic communities across the country.  Yet these two training innovations are not one and the same.  Minimalist shoes such as Vibram FiveFingers and Nike Free are joining the shoe landscape, partially in response to the bare-footing movement.

Gear of the Week: Marmot Never Summer MemBrain

Gear of the Week: Marmot Never Summer MemBrain
Marmot Never Summer Membrain
If you go camping in the fall or into the winter, you'll need a bag that's warm and protective. This bag does the trick.

Although Labor Day generally marks the last camping weekend of the summer, there’s still plenty of time to sleep outdoors. The nights are getting a little chillier, though, and the high country is starting to see a few dustings of snow. If you do pack up the car and head to the mountains to camp, you’ll need a bag that’s warm and can withstand the elements. The Marmot Never Summer MemBrain is a zero-degree bag that works well for chilly fall nights, and will keep you warm winter camping too.

Blizzard’s new Slider binding plate ($80) gives you choices. It mounts—in seconds, with a single screw—to any Blizzard IQ Max ski, and accepts any flat-ski compatible binding. You get the benefits of Blizzard’s unique IQ interface (slop-free energy transfer, unimpeded flex), using a binding you might already own. (Blizzard calls it the industry’s first “open-source” system.) The mounting process is so easy, you might even want two or more Sliders, one mounted with your AT binding, another with your telemark binding, and so on. One ski, multiple applications.
