Tech Toys & Gear
This issue focuses on the latest
technology updates and gift-giving ideas: a military-standard GPS
multi-function outdoor watch by Garmin is ideal for the adventure
enthusiast; fat-tire bikes are a trending favorite and Specialized just
updated its design components for a lightweight yet powerful ride; and
for the backcountry skier, the inventive Faber S-Line hybrid
ski/snowshoe works like a traditional snowshoe on flat or hilly terrain,
and provides good flotation in powdery, fluffy snow.
Here, readers will discover a new crop of
five-door sport wagons that are a long way from the original wood-sided
family trucksters. With better handling and increased horsepower,
Mercedes-AMG, Jaguar and Porsche have all helped to rebrand the original
Winter Fashion: Puff Piece
Functional and lightweight, the
down-filled “puffer” coat has become as fashionable as it is practical.
First appearing in 1936 by outdoorsman Eddie Bauer, the versatile coat
has seen many iterations—from backcountry to street style to
fast-fashion. In this segment, we look at this utilitarian garment’s
varied history and its future as fashion-meets-tech.
“The technological innovations featured in this annual Winter Mountain
Adventure issue get me excited about the season and all it has to
offer,” says Editor-in-Chief Deborah Frank. “From the latest off-piste
skis and backcountry splitboards to ultra-high-performance sport wagons
and lightweight technical ice tools, the opportunity to gear up and go
for it has never been greater—or more fun.”
Cover Artist: Theodore Waddell
Featured cover artist
Theodore Waddell is a Montana-born painter, sculptor and rancher
considered one of the American West’s most celebrated contemporary
artists. His paintings and prints of landscapes with animals couple
abstract expressionist techniques with the cattle, horses and bison that
populate the high plains and mountain valleys. The cover art, Motherwell’s
Angus #23, explores positive and negative space while depicting the
expansiveness of the landscape. Waddell has had over 90 solo exhibitions
and is scheduled to show at the Gail Severn Gallery in Ketchum, Idaho,
in February 2019.
