The MTN Lab is the light­est hel­met on the mar­ket (just over half a pound), and it’s cer­ti­fied for moun­taineer­ing too. At nine pounds, 14.5 ounces, the clamshell stove from Jetboil isn’t a min­i­mal­ist's dream. But each 10,000-BTU burner can boil a liter of wa­ter in three min­utes. CRKT teamed up with Amer­i­can speed climber Hans Florine to de­sign a sheath­less knife for har­nessed ad­ven­ture. Its cara­biner clip lets it hang at the ready and blocks the blade from de­ploy­ing. Find your way, plus mea­sure con­tour lines on topo maps and slope an­gles in the field. The Avat­ech’s new app is the first crowd-sourc­ing plat­form for avalanche safety. Use it to geo­tag a lo­ca­tion with a set of ob­ser­va­tions and send it of to the com­mu­nity of users. A sub­scrip­tion ser­vice with more su­per-cool fea­tures is also avail­able.
