This week I decided to dig through reports from my affiliate networks to see which products you all purchased the most this year. First off, I wanted to thank you for continuing to support this site by clicking through on affiliate links and banners–I really appreciate it. In return, I hope you find the content relevant, compelling, and useful. Below you will find ten of the best sellers from the year–this is by no means comprehensive, just ten products I noticed had been purchased repeatedly. The list may give you some ideas for holiday gifts if you are struggling with those last minute purchases. I would love to hear what you think about the items.
A move you saw coming with the initial release of the Arc’teryx approach shoes at this time last summer, the Vancouver based company now announces the release of a full alpine boot. Using a similar but more beefy construction to the Acrux line of approach shoes, the Acrux AR GTX looks set to take on Scarpa, Mammut, Lowa, and La Sportiva in the alpine boot market.
