The Carbon SL is 200 grams lighter than last year's model, has a stiff carbon fiber highback, and employs new features dedicated to making touring a seamless affair—and in any condition. Jones trusted these bindings deep within the Himalaya while shooting for Higher in Nepal.

POC Fornix Backcountry MIPS Helmet: $199.95


The Fornix comes equipped with MIPS, cutting edge technology that helps reduce shock transmitted to the brain from a hard hit.

O'Neill designed this light, technical jacket to keep Jeremy dry no matter what situation he finds himself in. From month-long human-powered trips into remotes parts of BC, Alaska, and Nepal, the Jones 3L Jacket withstood the elements.
