Steens Mountain Full Zip

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Overall a good replacement to a cotton sweatshirt. Great for mild temps/conditions. I always like Columbia fleeces, but over the years it has changed. Now if you have a Benton Springs which is the same thing but a women's, the Benton is a lot softer compared to this. I will do a review on that later.

It surpassed my expectations of warmth… Full review

Saturday Trail II Convertible Pant

rated 4 of 5 stars Made of thin material, which is both good and bad. Coverts to shorts: awesome! Love that they convert to shorts if you get too hot.

Drainmaker III

rated 5 of 5 stars I do a lot of wilderness canoeing and I'm always getting my feet wet. For years I'd wear old running shoes or sandals, but recently I found a product that combines the benefits of both. The Columbia Drainmaker III is a hybrid shoe that looks and feels like a traditional running shoe, yet adds the water draining features of an open toed sandal. The secret is the breathable upper mesh that allows water to seep out, combined with 'drain ports' built into the sole of the shoe that allow the rest of… Full review

Diamond 890 TurboDown Hooded Jacket

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Dark feathers are visible, look like dirty spots. Called Columbia, they said this is not defect so no return. Don't recommend. Full review
