The Salomon Super Halo Down Hoodie

What is the down jacket that Kilian Jornet and Emily Forsberg are adventuring around the Alps in? The Super Halo Hoodie from Salomon. This jacket is incredibly light and incredibly warm with 800-fill water-resistant down. The Pertex DWR-treated shell and color blocking provides a style that we REALLY like.

The Suunto Ambit 3 Peak and Sport

Pretty much everyone on staff at SFRC uses a Suunto GPS watch and for good reason. These are bombproof, offer long battery life, and the new Ambit 3 series now includes wireless upload and syncs directly with Suunto's easy-to-use Movescount mobile app. Upload directly to Strava after your run without ever having to plug in your watch.. EVER. We have these in Black, Blue (pictured), and white.

Running Gloves

Runners often don't realize they need a good pair of running gloves until they are out on a run with frozen hands. We have great glove options from The North Face and Salomon between $25-$45. The lightweight options also make perfect liners for weekend ski trips in Tahoe.

The Black Diamond ION, a great $25 headlamp

We have great headlamps that generate a ton of light (Petzl NAO 2, Petzl RXP, Black Diamond ReVolt), however we love the little ION from Black Diamond. Swipe-activated, 80 lumens, this lamp is really small but the perfect safety and backup light for low light conditions. This is a great deal at $25 in our opinion.

The 2015 Tribute to the Trails Calendar
