Outside® likes us. They really, really like us.
In their May 2012 issue, and Summer 2012 buyer’s guide, Outside Magazine names three of our products as top picks. Specifically, the leading active-lifestyle magazine called out the Peakfreak™ OutDry shoe, the Reactor™ 15 Mummy bag, and the Flyin’ Dry™ Shell.
We’ve always known the ulra-lightweight Peakfreak was a great shoe for taking on the trails with speed, agility, and support. Its Omni-Grip® outsole and Techlite® midsole made sure of that. Then, we went and added a waterproof breathable OutDry membrane to take things to the next level. In the May 2012 issue, Outside gives the shoe a nod as being the best for trails, and goes on to say that it has “…enough guts to protect feet on mixed terrain (snow, ice, dirt, gravel) during wet, all-day hiking…” It’s great to see others out there recognizing what comes from our passion for tirelessly trying stuff.
Reactor 15 Mummy
“Best for: getting warm quickly” and, “…the dots do bring the interior up to body temperature much more quickly.” These were just two of the lovely things that Outside had to say about the Reactor 15 Mummy in the summer 2012 buyer’s guide. We constructed this crazy warm bag with Thermix insulation and an Omni-Heat® Thermal Reflective lining that helps regulate your temperature with little silver dots that reflect and retain the warmth your body generates. We also gave the Reactor the water and stain repellency of Omni-Shield®, establishing it further as a mighty piece of cold-fighting armor.
Also in their summer 2012 buyer’s guide, Outside gave a shout out to the Flyin’ Dry Shell, naming it as one of the top women’s jackets of the season. In fact, they went on to write that the Flyin’ Dry is “…an ideal shell for windy bike rides”, that it is their “…choice for shoulder-season running”, and that they “…liked spring skiing in it, too.” Well, we couldn’t be happier. We had versatility in mind when we set out to design the Flyin’ Dry. We made it ultrabreathable and waterproof with Omni-Dry®, and gave it wicking accelerated prowess with Omni-Wick® EVAP. This moisture management combination keeps you dry inside and out.
We’re flattered to get these three mentions in a great pub like Outside, and we’re sure more good press is on the way for these and other products. That’s just what comes from trying stuff, and we try hard to make the best gear in the industry. While we love a good write up in the press, what means more to us is that you, the customer, the outdoor adventurer, and the real pioneer of trying what people think can’t be done, love our gear. As long as you keep wearing it out, we’ll keep innovating to make it better.
