Sub7 Hammock, Soft Gore Jacket, Ski/Climb Pack, More

The lightest hammock, a hardshell with a softer Gore membrane, a ski/climb/move pack, and flexible snowshoes. It may be the winter show, but that doesn't mean Outdoor Retailer is limited to strictly winter gear.

Thanks to Seth's relentless foot-pounding, here are some more gear highlights from the show.

 

Eagles Nest Outfitters Goes Sub7

North Carolina-based hammock maker Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO) may have just created the world's lightest hammock. The Sub7 hammock is made from a sheet of exceptionally light nylon Taffeta ripstop and weighs just 5.7 ounces

Of course, you're going to need a suspension system to go with that hammock, so how about ENO's new Helios suspension system. The tree-friendly Helios features polyester blend tree slings to protect trees from bark loss and a unique Dyneema tensioning system.

 

Soft Gore Jacket from Dynafit

Part of Dynafit’s freeride line, the 3-layer, waterproof Yotei Jacket features Gore’s new C-KNIT Backer technology, which promises a softer touch alongside greater breathability and lighter weight.

 

Salomon Ski & Climb Pack

Salomon's S-Lab X Alp 20 is a lightweight, close-fitting, climbing and backcountry ski pack that promises to hold just what you need for a day in the mountains, from rope to helmet, skis to ice axes. All in a 20-liter package.

 

 

Flexing Feet with TSL Snowshoes

Vermont-based snowshoe manufacturer TSL has introduced a line of highly flexible snowshoe over the past two winters. The Symbioz snowshoes flex on all planes, allowing their crampons to better grasp varying terrain for better traction and performance.

  • We met up with TSL at OR's Demo Day for a video overview of the Symbioz Elite »

Thanks, Denis. Credit goes to Seth for getting those pictures up on Facebook daily.

It's helpful to hear about specific new products that people want to know more about. We can definitely look into getting some Point6 socks for a Review Corps test.

Hey Denis, I just landed some light hiker, merino, Point 6 socks at Eddie Bauer. Only worn them a couple times so no review coming for awhile, but so far, very good.

Over the weekend that sub-7 hammock prompted me to finish writing my review on GT's Nano:

Lighter is not always better!

Enjoyed the coverage and great photos.  I have to say I'm really impressed by some of the outdoor wear Adidas is coming out with (at least from looks).  Do any of you have any experience on how well it's made?

I just checked our reviews and there are only two postings for Adidas jackets.  Do you think they'd provide some for testing by the Review Corps to beef up their brand awareness?
