Arborwear Campbell Hill Jacket
England, Mike
The down puffy coat—that ubiquitous anorak beloved by outdoor enthusiasts everywhere—has always suffered two major flaws: one, at any temperature above freezing, it’s pretty much a dry-sauna for your torso; and two, the flimsy nylon skin opens up with the slightest of scratches, spewing feathers Read more >>

Arborwear Cedar Flex
Mike England
Last year I destroyed my favorite pants, ripping out the backside as I bootie-scooted down a steep scree field below Mt. Cowan. I’d needed mobility for the climb, which meant I had to sacrifice durability on the descent—thick, tear-resistant pants just don’t bend where you need ’em to, right? Read more >>
