The BACKPACKER test crew just returned from five days in the mountains, where we put next winter's hiking, camping, and skiing gear through a final round of testing. We climbed almost 2,000 feet up to the 10th Mountain Division Hut Association's Skinner Hut, which sits at 11,620 feet, above Leadville, Colorado. A late-spring storm delivered plenty of fresh powder and perfect testing conditions. Check out the link for more from the trip. [photos by Andrew Bydlon]
