MTN LAB HELMET
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.
