ORWM 18 – Beyond K6 ARX Rain Jacket and Pant

Friday, November 9th, 2018

Awhile back we teased the ARX Rain Jacket and Pant. They are the level 6 garment in Beyond’s new Kyros line which is made from foreign sourced materials.

In particular, this ensemble features the debut of Beyond’s proprietary Lutra, a 3-layer waterproof breathable fabric.

The jacket has several other design features. For instance, the hood can be rolled up and buttoned out of the way.

Additionally, the zipper feature new hardware and redesigned garages.

On the inside there is a pass through and cable management for electronics cords.

Finally, the cuffs are fashioned from Hypalon.

In addition to the Jacket, there is a Pant.

It is also made from Lutra and features full length side zips to facilitate donning and doffing, but these don’t separate at the top. The bottom cuff is secured with a snap and there are Cordura patches at the instep to mitigate wear.

OWWM 18 – Team Wendy M-216 SKI SAR Helmet Enhancements

Friday, November 9th, 2018

With nothing else like it on the market, the Team Wendy M-216 SKI SAR Helmet has become quite popular. But like anything else, users have asked for a few enhancements to the helmet.

First off is the M-216 Counterweight Kit. The unique design is patterned specifically for use with this helmet. It is 1 pound of coated lead with a Grey Cordura skin and attached via some very robust Velcro.

Next is the removable chin cup which converts the under-the-chin sports-style chinstrap to a similar strap found on the Ballistic helmet, offering additional stability when wearing night vision devices. It can be pulled out of the way or removed completely.

These enhancements, along with the Wilcox machined aluminum shroud, are available as part of the M-216 Tactical Ski SAR offering.


2018 Outdoor Retailer Winter Market – The Second Coming

Friday, November 9th, 2018

If you’re a regular SSD reader, you’re thinking two things. First, you’re wondering if it was all a dream when you read about the 2018 OR winter market back in January. Next, you’re wondering why the heck there is a OR Show in mid November. Both are really good questions.

There was a winter market held here in Denver back in January, right after SHOT show. The reason there is a second winter market this year is because they are moving the dates in order to line up with actual order taking in the outdoor industry. As you can imagine, it has led to some upheaval in attendance. I’m not really sure what I’m going to see inside the show, but let’s go take a look.
