Trail Flash Short Sleeve Shirt

rated 4 of 5 stars The Columbia Trail Flash Short Sleeve Shirt is a stylish, medium-weight wicking tee shirt with reflective accents.

PFG Omni-Freeze Short Sleeve Tee

rated 5 of 5 stars I bought a few of these shirts on sale and I love them. They keep me cool on hot summer hikes and they dry very fast if they get wet. They fit well and are very comfortable. They are great for layering as well. I bought a few of these shirts over the past couple years because they fit well and they are rugged.

Very breathable… Full review

Conspiracy III Outdry

rated 4 of 5 stars A good value trail shoe. Waterproof. Waterproof and lightweight shoe that was not too expensive It doesn't hold dirt on the fabric part so always look new!

Some Background: Pants and other clothing for outdoor activities have only a few basic functions to fulfill: weather protection (sun UV, warmth/cooling, cold wind and breezes), protection… Full review

OutDry Ex Diamond Shell Jacket

rated 3 of 5 stars The Columbia OutDry EX Diamond Shell Jacket is a waterproof shell that does great keeping the rain out, but places form over function. I tested the Columbia OutDry EX Diamond Shell during the winter and spring of 2016 in the White Mountains Region of New Hampshire. The temperatures were above average and precipitation was more often rain or wet snow than anything else. I had planned on testing this jacket as an alpine touring and skiing jacket, but with the low snow levels I ended up mostly using… Full review
