What is three ounces fits in your palm and makes fondue?
The MSR PocketRocket of course.
We love this tiny, efficient, ultra-light stove for everything from day hikes to local excursions in New York City's parks.
Overwhelmed by all of the gear choices?
Stop using cold fingers as an excuse for not riding your bike during the winter: Pearl Izumi's Pro Softshell Lobster Gloves will keep your hands warm and may even make you sweaty.
What can comfortably fit two bottles of wine, a couple pounds of cheese, a baguette and a blanket?
The Golite Pinnacle backpack of course.
The Pinnacle can also fit a down jacket, a rain jacket, three liters of water, a bathing suit, a headlamp, a small first-aid kit and the above items.
