​We asked photographer Chris Burkard to put together a list of extremes. From horrible infections to destroyed gear; customs scares and swimming in the frozen waters of the Arctic Circle, Chris' list runs the gamut of some of the most uncomfortable travel experiences we can imagine...  Words and photos by Chris Burkard ​ Hardest Approach To A Shoot
Arc'teryx Staffer Sarah Stepec Reviews The Kapta Short
Fri, 05/22/2015 - 13:04
Words by Sarah Stepec. When I first came across the Kapta shorts I was looking for something that would allow me to comfortably run all distances. As an endurance athlete that spends a lot of time in the mountains, I had already pieced together a criteria based on a number of issues I’d been having. To sum this up, I wanted something that would allow me to focus on my performance and not what I am wearing. The Kapta Shorts have done good job at doing just that.

Even in the last two years, which have been unusually warm on the Coast Mountains, Lax has managed to consistently find his way into spined-up, beastly lines that look like they’re straight out of Alaska’s Chugach Range. And he’s managed to get them in good condition, which is no small feat in this seemingly-changing climate of ours.

Words and photos by Wayne Flann Winter in the Pacific Northwest (and elsewhere), so far, has been a non-event. Though the alpine has a great base, ski touring has been dismal. The El Nino promised by all the weather gurus never materialized—instead, for the third year in a row, we seem to be slipping back into a La Nada cycle.
