Hiking or rock climbing in winter requires specialized gear. When we’re out in cold weather we test all types of winter gear including mountaineering ice axes, crampons, and micro-spikes.
Our winter equipment reviews will help you conquer any rigorous trails, come snow or ice. Read on how they keep you on the move, unstoppable even in the foulest weather.
We’ve also tested how you can ascend and descend any peak, going the distance with hiking gaiters as part of your rack.
