Travis Poulin

Review Editor


Travis moved to Colorado after earning his BA in Journalism from the University of Maine to continue river guiding. He then pursued his career working as a news reporter for the Sky-Hi News in Winter Park and then as an Outdoor Business Editor for SGB Today, covering outdoor news and trade shows. He is now a production manager, crafting handmade bamboo ski poles and paddles in Steamboat Springs, CO. In the winter, he can be found skiing at the resort, backcountry, or mountaineering. In the off months, he splits his time between guiding whitewater on Clear Creek and the Colorado River, mountain biking, and climbing. He no longer lives in a tent but continuously pursues a minimalist, outside-all-the-time lifestyle while avoiding the “normal” grind.

With so many choices, it can be difficult to find the right pair. We hands-on test the best gloves and mittens for skiing and snowboarding
Outdoor Research StormTracker Heated

Outdoor Research StormTracker Heated

A heated, dexterous glove with similar features to competitors that lacks insulation where needed. It's less expensive than most heated products on the market
FlyLow Oven Mitt

FlyLow Oven Mitt

A great entry into the mitten game that is easy on the wallet. There isn't a ton of insulation, but these mitts rely on the grouping of fingers to keep you warm.
Flylow Ridge Glove

Flylow Ridge Glove

Tough as a work glove but not ideal for necessary tasks while skiing and not warm enough for resort use beyond Spring season laps
REI Co-op Guide Insulated

REI Co-op Guide Insulated

Though it does not stand out significantly, this glove performs every task an insulated glove should with the simplicity many skiers will appreciate.
