Topo Designs x Danner Ridge Boot
Topo Designs x Danner Ridge Boot
A collaboration between Danner and Topo Designs, the Ridge Boot in Dark Brown combines style and craftsmanship for a boot that keeps your feet warm and supported throughout your adventures. Inspired by the silhouette of the Danner Light Boot but 20 percent lighter, the Ridge Boot features a waterproof GORE-TEX® liner and a full-grain leather and Cordura® upper. A OrthoLite® footbed cushions the sole, and a Vibram® Kletterlift Thin outsole provides support without adding height or weight. The colors take a cue from Topo Designs' bold palette, and the tongue is embossed with a co-branded logo. Each Ridge Boot is made in the USA. Photo: Courtesy of Topo Designs

Snow Peak Mini Hozuki Light
Snow Peak Mini Hozuki Light
The compact Mini Hozuki Lantern is one of my favorite camping gear items. The bright and versatile LED camping light has intuitive controls, and produces warm candle-like tone instead of the cold LED found in most lights in the category. The latern is very light and small enough to take on long backpacking trips without added burden or bulk. The Hozuki also features a surprisingly powerful magnetic fastener that makes this the perfect light source for illuminating your tent.
