Twice a year, outdoor gear companies descend on Salt Lake City with their most innovative offerings. At the Winter Show, we get to try out new helmet cameras, winter coats, and, of course, the latest shred-worthy skis. In the summer, however, we get to bask in the Utah sun on bikes, paddleboards, and trails and try out the newest backpacks, shells, and tents. We pored over the wares from hundreds of exhibitors, found our favorite items, and narrowed our list down to 12 things we want to take home right now.
Helly Hansen Odin Minimalist Rain Jacket
A high quality shell that weighs less than 6 ounces and packs into the chest pocket, the Minimalist Jacket is a great emergency layer for any adventure. Made using the incredibly durable HellyTech Pro material, it’s fully waterproof with sealed seams throughout and comes in a variety of bright colors.
