ISPO 2019 - New Footwear and Packs Show Report

The annual ISPO trade show, which brings the world's outdoor industry together under one roof (or a series of gigantic roofs) in Munich, has just wrapped up for 2019. Heavy snowfall gave this year's event a suitably wintry feel, and if we'd really rather have been out in the nearby Bavarian Alps enjoying the conditions, our compensation was getting an early look at mountains of new gear that'll be hitting the shelves in the near future. Here are some video interviews with brand representatives, who talked us through the key features of their new footwear and packs:

  • Hanwag - Alverstone II
  • La Sportiva - Olympus Mons
  • Mammut - Magic High GTX and Taiss Light Mid GTX
  • Scarpa - Furia Air
  • Scarpa - Mont Blanc Pro and Phantom Tech
  • Dolomite - Cinquantaquattro Trek
  • Dolomite - Tamaskan
  • Kayland - Dry Dragon and Ice Dragon
  • Fjallraven - Singi Stubben and Singi, 28l 48l
  • Lowe Alpine - Ascent Range
  • Lowe Alpine - Uprise 30 40
  • Osprey - Daylight Series
  • >
  • Osprey - Farpoint & Fairview Trek

That 'Alverstone II' boot looks good. Obviously a sales based vid but a lot of what he showed and explained there made sense.
