Best Gear In 2014… Outdoor Retailer ‘Best In Show’ Awards (part II)

Our second part of the “Best In Show” awards highlights a mini ice axe, a ski helmet, and a camera sensor that can track your moves, among other to-be-released products. (See part I of our “Best In Show” here.)

The products here, most available in mid/late 2014, represent the best new gear as seen at the Outdoor Retailer trade show in Utah last week.

Congrats to all the winners! This gear is some of the most innovative outdoors equipment designed for this year. —Stephen Regenold
