This week, gear companies descended on Salt Lake City for the Outdoor Retailer trade show. They showed off what they've got in the pipeline for next year. We scoured the aisles for the best of what's to come. Here is what we found.

The Gear Junkie's 2012 Gear Preview

The midsummer tradition of unveiling new outdoors gear comes to fruition next week in Salt Lake City at the twice-annual Outdoor Retailer trade show. But Gear Junkie got an early look from a few companies, including the splay of unique products here. This equipment, most of which will not be available for months, is a peek at some of the more innovative items you’ll see on the shelf at outdoors shops in 2012.

La Sportiva's first foray into skis is pretty impressive. We skied their biggest ski, the Hi5, and were impressed by how easily it busted through crud.

Next Year's Skis and Gear: Outdoor Retailer 2011

We've been trolling the floor at this year's Outdoor Retailer trade show, checking out next winter's gear. So far, the story has been about the sidecountry, and ski, boots, packs, and jackets that are designed to be used in the backcountry just as well as the resort. We also saw beefy but lightweight bindings, multiple airbag packs, a bunch of waterproof, breathable fabrics. Here's what you'll be coveting next fall.

Weighing in at 13 oz., the Super Cell is an excellent choice for the backpacker or outdoors person that wants a super light Gore-Tex waterproof jacket.  The jacket is helmet compatible, and provides the classic Patagonia styling and quality that we have come to love over the years.  $249
