Blister Gear Reviews Baker Bib and New Women's Kenzie Jacket

Baker Bib gets callout for “Best Of” awards

There are no outdoor gear reviews out there quite like Blister. The reviewers at this gear site and bi-annual magazine go so in-depth, it's like reading a college thesis on ski pants or tech bindings. We're talking 2,000-word reviews on everything from base layers to powder skis. In Blister's annual Winter Buyer's Guide, which is as heavy as a textbook and out now, features Flylow's Baker Bib for men and the new-for-this-year Kenzie Jacket for women. Both reviews commended the gear for being durable and long-lasting and also affordable.

"The Kenzie has a longer silhouette than a typical ski jacket, but is shorter than the traditional long, insulated parka," it says. Adding, "All of that makes the Kenzie a high-quality, warm jacket—and at $325, it's far less expensive than most comparable options."

For the Baker Bib, it says, "These are the burliest bibs we've ever used, but they're also not nearly the most expensive. The Baker Bib remains a phenomenal choice for those who are very hard on their outerwear."

Be sure to pick up a copy of the Blister Winter Buyer's Guide for in-depth analysis of all of this season's best new gear.
