B.D.V. Hoody from Black DiamondBlack Diamond launches into its second wave of a massive apparel line launch in the spring of 2014 with the B.D.V. Hoody, a reincarnation of the old-school, and some might say legendary, Alpine Shirt. The (Black Diamond Vertical) Hoody was made as an all-purpose piece for the four-season alpinist. It stretches when necessary and the half-zipper allows for cooling when required. The Hoody ($199) is fast, light an impressive. Available Spring 2014. http://blackdiamondequipment.com/

The Salt Lake Tribune is providing a look at some of the gear shown at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market last week at the Salt Palace Convention Center. Because the show is closed to the public, we thought we would share a peak with the public about gear coming to the outdoors world. Items will be featured on the Tribune's Hiking Utah and Fishing Utah blogs. An Outdoor Retailer package will also run in the Tribune. — Brett Prettyman
