Redmond Mid Waterproof

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A good middle of the road lightweight waterproof hiking shoe that has nice sticky rubber on the soles that would make these an acceptable approach shoe. As I have gotten older I have drifted away from heaver hiking boots and gone to trail runners for much of my backpacking in the summer, but I would still like to find a shoe that is a little more robust than a trail runner, but has plenty cushion and is close to the weight of a trail runner. I normally don't consider Columbia shoes as I have always… Full review

Saturday Trail II Convertible Pant

rated 5 of 5 stars True to size, stretchy yet durable, plus breathable with a flattering fit. Compounded with the affordable price, these pants are a steal! My go-to pants for all sorts of occasions.

They are remarkably lightweight and stretchy… Full review

rated 5 of 5 stars First ever jacket made from 100% recycled fabric from 100 plastic bottles. 100% breathable and waterproof.

I wore this jacket on chilly mornings while climbing multiple 1,000 feet plus on Quebec's IAT section hike. It performed magnificently and this is one of my pieces for the Triple Crown of hiking. All my gear reviews have now been hiker… Full review

Trail Meister

rated 2 of 5 stars Not a comfortable shoe overall. It's narrow and build quality is lacking. I thought I was getting a quality pair (for its name). I was wrong. Full review

Watertight II Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars A great entry level, lightweight jacket perfect for warmer weather from Canadian spring to fall. The Columbia Watertight Jacket is a great entry level rain jacket. It's meant to keep you dry, and it does just that! It's very simple, with not many bells or whistles, but it fits true to size and looks pretty sharp. I find it to be very comfortable to wear with just a t shirt or long sleeve underneath, but if you are looking to wear a fleece or thicker shirt, I would recommend buying a size up.  The… Full review
