I have been a huge fan of the Buff products for years! I wear the Pack Run Cap for trail running and under my bike and climbing helmets daily. It acts as a great sun protector and sweat catcher all in one. Big fan!
Backcountry Skiing and Ski Mountaineering in Rocky Mountain National Park
A full color backcountry ski guidebook to Colorado's most popular National Park by AMGA mountain guide Mark Kelly, a long time local and former guide in the park.
STAFF PICK: TUCKER
I'm constantly referring to this book for information, and as a journal to keep track of what I've skied and when. It's so useful to have information about all of the major backcountry skiing and ski mountaineering within Rocky Mountain National Park in one book so clearly organized.

The perfect sock for anytime! Whether I'm out mountain biking, hiking, or just kicking around the Shop, the Heady Stripe sock from Darn Tough is my go-to. I use this sock all the time, and they hold up to all the abuse I put them through. It's hard to argue against an unconditional lifetime guarantee too!
Pocket Rocket 2
The next-generation PocketRocket® 2 stove takes everything impressive about the iconic original and puts it into an even smaller and lighter high-performance design. Barely noticeable in your pack, it’s fast at camp, boiling 1 liter of water in 3.5 minutes. Precision flame control goes from torch to simmer, while our WindClip® windshield boosts efficiency in breezy conditions. New folding pot supports create an exceptionally tiny packed size, and they now accommodate a wider range of vessels—pair this stove with the MSR Titan® Kettle for the ultimate fast and light kit.
STAFF PICK: ANDREW
The Pocket Rocket is a great lightweight backpacking stove. If you're trying to save weight and take up as little space as possible in your pack, the Pocket Rocket is easily a top contender. I use it all the time to make meals on backpacking trips and on almost every outing to make coffee out in the backcountry.

I have been using the MSR Trail Shot for two years now and love it. I use it on long trail runs in RMNP. It is great because it is extremely compact and quick and easy to use. A great answer for bikepacking to spring backcountry ski tours - my go-to water filtration source.
