Flashlight brand Icon has a clever twist on LED technology. Columbia tries to best the performance of all the "waterproof/breathable" fabrics out there. And other OR highlights from Coleman, Eureka, and Thorlo.

Tom! I can't believe that Eureka would allow such provocative photos of their products! :)

I can't say I'm surprised that Columbia is making a high-end bid. They have worked really hard in the past 10 years to establish themselves as a durable, mid-end provider. Stepping up to the "performance" market seems to be the logical move (Eddie Bauer with the First Ascent line, for example). But what a cool display to launch it! The breathability appears to be pretty serious... which would encourage me to try it (when it goes on sale).
