The semi-annual Outdoor Retailer show held in Denver, Colorado is a haven for just about every big name brand in the industry to show off the gear they’ve been designing and manufacturing for the past year-plus. While the show’s Summer Market handles everything from camping to surfing, January’s Snow Show is all things winter. Think down jackets and ski and snowboard apparel — if it keeps you warm, pushes you down a mountain, or lets you traverse ice, Outdoor Retailer’s Snow Show has it.

This winter’s show was no different as brands like Osprey, Marmot, and Yeti took to the Denver Convention Center to showcase everything from innovative avalanche packs to heat-retaining base layers. There’s even an area of the show dedicated entirely to hard goods like skis from Faction or Jones snowboards.

Though just about every corner of the convention center featured the latest and greatest in snow-specific gear, a few brands and products particularly stood out. Much of what we found won’t officially hit the market until next winter but already have us looking ahead. Here are our picks of the best products from this year’s Outdoor Retailer Snow Show.

Osprey Soelden/Sopris Pro, $1,200 — available fall 2020

The Pro version of the Soelden (men’s) and Sopris (women’s) pack has a built-in airbag system from Alpride. What’s unique is that it’s an electronic-based system that doesn’t use canisters, making it safe to carry onboard a flight. It also recharges via USB in just 20 minutes, and there’s enough room for it to carry accessories for ascents.

Kahtoola EXOspikes $59.95 — available fall 2020

Designed for use on road and trail, the EXOspikes keep you safe when walking on ice — they’re even designed to allow you to run in them. They attach to any pair of shoes by simply stretching over them and 12 small tungsten carbide spikes keep you steady on ice and snow.

We even put it to the test: Despite some initial trepidation of falling, we safely walked and ran across ice and found them comfortable to wear.

Rumpl Travel Blanket, $99 — available August 2020

Rumpl’s Travel Blanket lives up to its namesake in just about every way. It’s lightweight enough to pack along in the car or in a backpack and packs down roughly to the size of a Nalgene bottle. Despite the light weight and small size, it still provides incredible warmth. The blanket also features a water-repellent coating and is made from post-consumer recycled materials, both in its shell and filling.
