Hybrid LT Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars This lightweight, soft shell jacket offers warmth while reducing the amount of bulky insulation around your arms thereby enhancing mobility and movement. The hood offers further functionality for maintaining core warmth. These factors are very useful in many varied circumstances. Highly recommended. I recommend this lighter weight jacket as a perfect mid or outer layer that keeps your core warm while reducing the bulky insulation around your arms. I ordered a large and it fit as expected—perfectly. Full review

Cloak 15

rated 5 of 5 stars Do not fear the quilt. Unless you're a wild thrasher, in which case a quilt might actually be good for you. Worked for cynical old me. I decided a few months back to get serious about paying off my credit cards, but couldn't help one last splurge before dumping the plastic in the shredder. I was also absolutely sure I didn't want to spend another 2-3 weeks in the Sierra in a less than perfect sleeping bag, or as I was leaning towards, more and more—a quilt.  Hours of spotty on-line research,… Full review

Lt Breeze Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars The Brooks-Range Lt Breeze Jacket is a versatile, innovative, ultra-light wind jacket. The innovation? Paper thin “fleece” diamonds laminated to the inside of the 20-denier nylon fabric that keep cold, wet nylon off your skin or base layer and boost airflow beneath the fabric. This jacket looks great, fits well, wears like iron, and weighs a scant 5.3 ounces in size medium. Those fleece diamonds do exactly what Brooks Range intended; they eliminate that clammy sticky feeling when wearing this… Full review

Ultralite Solo Tarp

rated 0.5 of 5 stars This tarp does not hold up, and does not keep a single word promised in the information from Brooks-Range. I have had this tarp for two years. I've only used it twice. Once on one winter hike to cover up the lean-to, and once on a hike in the Whites in the month of August. I was using it in combination with my Rab eVent bivy that I normally only use during the winter. The tarp is very small for 1 person and it can only just be done under perfect conditions. I was setting camp at the Liberty Springs… Full review

Alpini Mountain Anorak

rated 5 of 5 stars Outstanding product! Sizing was normal — XL fit me (5'9", 215) perfect over a compression layer, light wool, and R3 fleece. I use it for winter float fly fishing (not much movement) and snowshoeing (constant movement) and the Alpini is super for both. If you're active, layer carefully as this is a warm unit. The side zips are great, but since I don't wear a climbing harness, I'd prefer pit zips. Hand warmer muff pocket in the front lacks closures, but stays shut, works great with a chemical hand… Full review
