Compact Light 2

rated 4 of 5 stars The zipper on the rainfly split after the second use, but I had also drawn it too taut when I set it up in a full blown storm. It did, however, provide excellent shelter in adverse conditions, even with my humble repairs on the zipper. Loved it the first use here in Colorado, where we had rain, and some sleet. We took it up to the Snowy Range in Wyoming, where the winds were sustained and we had rain, sleet and snow. The zipper on the rainfly split near the top of the tent. We battled that one out,… Full review

Okla Lady Pant

rated 3 of 5 stars Designed for ski touring and mountaineering, the Okla does not live up to expectations when it comes to these activities. The cuff is too narrow to comfortably accommodate a ski touring boot, and the thin, lightweight material is unlikely to provide adequate insulation in higher elevations. However, the Okla is an excellent option for those on the market for a lightweight, breathable soft-shell pant that can be worn across a variety of other winter activities such as snowshoeing, backcountry nordic… Full review

Torfinnstind Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Torfinnstind Jacket is a soft-shell hybrid that provides comfort and stretch while repelling wind and water. Whether hiking, mountain biking, snowshoeing, nordic skiing, alpine skiing, or backcountry ski touring, the Torfinnstind has been my most consistent outdoor adventure companion throughout the fall and winter months this season. This versatility across climate and sport earns it a consistent home in my pack (on the rare occasion in which I’m not already wearing it when I leave the house). Full review

Tufto Pants

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Except in the case of extreme cold or heat the Tufto Pants do everything I need pants to — from hiking and climbing to skiing and biking. Over the years I have gone from very low expectations for pants (wearing blue jeans in the mountains) to very high. I have gone from backpacker only to climber and minor mountaineer.  Disambiguation: The term “Bergen” is a generic term for any military backpack in the U.K. The term was used to describe the backpack style favored by skiers in Bergen, Norway. … Full review

Glittertind 55

rated 4.5 of 5 stars More than any other that I've tried, this backpack seems like it's part of your body. To work off a growing middle-age gut, I decided to get back into hiking and backpacking. I'd been a regular hiker when I was a teenager and young adult, but, like a lot of people, I started using my free time on other things as I settled into marriage and family life. Though I still had most of my equipment, somewhere along the way my trusty Kelty pack had disappeared. When I started researching a replacement,… Full review
