Squamish Hoody

rated 5 of 5 stars A perfect wind jacket. Not sure why it took me so long to get one! Those who have read my reviews before know that I seem to have an obsession with finding the "perfect" jacket. In fact, I have probably reviewed more jackets here, than any other type of clothing. I've been wanting to try this jacket out for some time, and when my REI dividend showed up, and this jacket appeared on the REI outlet page, I took the bait. With wind shells, there tends to be a tradeoff between wind-resistance and breathability. Full review

Camosun Parka

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Prior to today I would have given this garment 4 stars, even with the weakly snapped hood (which has been derided by many other reviewers on other sites). Fine. I bought this January 2016. Today on my way in to work the front zipper completely failed. It splits open when zipped open. For a $649 down jacket this is ridiculous. Full review

Rho LTW Neck Gaiter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A versatile piece of headwear, which may serve not only as a neck warmer, but also as a lightweight hat. Very comfortable to wear, and compact in folded state, but not very warm. I received this gaiter as a part of my Reviewer of the Month prize, and it’s one of the most useful items in this kit, to my opinion. I use it really often and it appears on most of my photos during the cold season (none of which were staged in this review). It's made of 95% merino wool and 5% elastane, so it stretches… Full review

Cerium LT Hoody

rated 2 of 5 stars Below average product with above average price + exceptionally arrogant customer service! Concise review: This is a review of the older version which lacked drawstrings at the hem, still being sold by various e-tailers. Fit: No drawstrings at hem—cold air gets sucked in Cuffs not snug fitting—cold air gets sucked in Well fitting hood and lightweight—comfortable! Features: Adjustments for hood—good! No adjustment at hem—Why?? Not-so-smooth zippers—Pain! Value: Comfortable + Cold air ingress… Full review

Epsilon LT Hoody

rated 5 of 5 stars My favorite jacket. Ever. So i can see why people have a difficult time figuring out what this jacket excels at. I have two, an XL that I have worn pretty much every day (except in the summer) for the past five years. I use it primarily as a one-tool option softshell/ hardfleece. This year I got a size Large to use for layering and couldn't be happier. So it's not as soft or insulated as the Gamma MX and not as stretchy as the Gamma LT. It's also a little more than half the price of the Gamma MX. Full review
