"Like a highly functional iteration of your favorite sweatshirt, the Rogue bridges the urban-technical divide. A cozy fleece lining is encased in a waterproof-breathable exterior, while commuter-friendly elements like reflective trim, a loop for hanging a light, and a helmet-compatible hood make it ideal for winter bike rides."

BLACK DIAMOND Men's Dawn Patrol Touring Pant
"If you spend more time in the skin track than the liftline, the Dawn Patrol pants may be for you. Made from burly yet immensely breathable Schoeller stretch-weave fabric, they offer expansive zip vents, a beacon pocket, and removable suspenders for your touring pleasure." Gear Guide, Winter 2014
Black Diamond Apparel Launch 2012
Check out this article on the Black Diamond Apparel Launch for a look into the ethos behind our process.
The Test: Testers pushed this rugged soft-and-hardshell hybrid into the teeth of winter weather. Sleep and rain bounced off the shoulders and hood, whichare cut from top-shelf waterproof Schoeller fabric. The back is made of stretchier water-resistant siff for better freedom of movement and breathability- especially under a pack. Bigger pockets would be nice, but the helmet-compatible hard-shell hood is brimmed and has a three-point cinch system for total stormproofing.
The Verdict: A shell you can exert yourself in - even when the graupel is blowing sideways.
BONTRAGER W's Race WSD Bib
When I got these sharp-looking bib shorts to test late last fall, I quickly lamented the fact that it would soon be winter and I'd be putting them away for the season. Why? They were the first shorts I'd tried in a while that didn't squeeze too tightly at the leg opening. Bontrager uses an innovative compression fabric with just a hint of grip that stays put without pinching or constricting. Panels of compression fabric around the thighs also help the shorts stay put and support working muscles. Beyond having happy legs, I also appreciate the thoughtful bib-strap design. Made from breathable mesh, the racer-cut back is easy to move in, and the front straps run unobtrusively along the sides of your torso. You can just slip into them, no clumsy over-the-head maneuvers or fumbling with fasteners required. And finally, the chamois doesn't rub or bunch. The pad's four-way stretch moves with your body, and multiple densities provide extra comfort where you need it and less bulk where you don't. Luckily, we had a mild winter here on the East Coast, and I got to wear these bibs as much as I wanted—which was pretty much all the time.—Leah Flickinger, Bicycling Magazine.

CLOUDVEIL Men's Spacewalk Jacket
Hooked - 12/07 "Ensconced from frigid gusts and precipitation with the down-like synthetic insulation of Primaloft and Schoeller Dynamic fabric, the Spacewalk will keep you sliding strong when the mercury drops and the snow flies. Cloudveil's propietary waterproof /breathable coating lines the inside of the Schoeller fabric to seal out moisture, along with wrist gaiters, a snow skirt, and a storm sealing collar. Most suited for cool temps, the Spacewalk is appropriate for dry conditions too and its sharp looks get a thumbs up from mountain-town denizens." -Hooked Magazine
MOUNTAIN HARDWEAR W's Typhoon Jacket
The search for the perfect multi-season jacket is exasperating--it has to perform well in various temperatures and conditions yet pack well, weigh nothing and (most importantly) look good. So you can imagine my excitement when I found a lightweight, durable shell that lived up to all my expectations. I found Mountain Hardwear's Women's Typhoon Jacket to be the perfect merger of fashion, function, and price. Weighing in at thirteen ounces and sporting a reasonable retail price of $199, its design and color options add a sense of style that rounds out this performance garment. -Alpinist 21 Mountain Standards Award
