Arc’teryx, which never does anything half-assed, is now making shoes and all signs point to the same kind of manufacturing and design quality we've come to expect from the company. We recently got a first look at these kicks during an unveiling last month in Chamonix, France, and left wanting a pair, stat (they officially hit stores for Spring/Summer 2015).
Every spring I reluctantly throw away favorite T-shirts. Cotton alone does not stand the test of time. Enter Marine Layer, a San Francisco-based clothing company. Like many Bay Area start-ups, Marine Layer began by solving a problem—replacing that old worn-in-just-right T after it gets tossed into T-shirt Heaven.
I’ve had the chance to shoot with a couple of these cameras including, most recently, Fuji’s X-M1. It sits a couple steps below the company’s premier mirrorless cameras, like their X-T1, and therefore lacks some important features, like a traditional eye-level viewfinder. But what it lacks in features, it makes up for in image quality.
There has never been so much good beer. It feels like every town across America now has a local brewery, if not 12. This variety makes it impossible to decide on the best beer, so instead, what we’ve done is round-up the best ski-related beer. Beers that actually have a ski theme or beers that come from well-known ski towns. We picked six, but we’re sure we missed some, so use the comments section to tell us about your favorite ski beers and we’ll make sure we sample those too.
