Odin Minimalist Rain Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars For under 6 ounces, this rain shell makes a lightweight addition to a pack. Used as an emergency layer, it breathes as well as a waterproof jacket can and layers easily with a down jacket in the cooler months. This three-season minimalist jacket used for hiking or biking packs small, but the small size, light weight, and durability comes at a higher price than others, though will be enticing to UL backpackers. Preface: I was lucky enough to win this jacket in a Facebook contest back in August for… Full review

Berthed 3

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Excellent urban boot, poor hiker. I have owned a pair for over two years dealing with harsh Canadian winters and rainy UK fall/winter/spring. The materials held up extremely well, and after a spray with leather conditioner/wax they looked and performed good as new. The construction was very good, and even the outsoles dealt well with both hikes and concrete as they were subjected to 500+ miles of use over two years. They were very comfortable as daily wearers, but I did notice soreness around the… Full review

Verglas Dynamic Softshell Pant

rated 3.5 of 5 stars HH, what's the deal? Making non-functional ski pants??? Sadly you CANNOT wear this one in the steep and deep. The cuff is far too small diameter to fit (stretch) over normal ski boots. Yep, I bought a pair for use in warmer spring conditions and they simply won't make it over the boots.  So, it's off to the tailor shop to get zippers cut in an lycra to make them work. Glad I bought them on sale, but still for +$138, not worth it unless you plan to sink in another $30 for tailoring. I love the fabric… Full review

Odin Mountain Jacket MK2

rated 5 of 5 stars I have had so many waterproof shells over the years, some with stretch panels, and some without but never one with an entirely stretch fabric design! Long sleeves and a great torso fit make this jacket a must have for tall folks who are serious about all season protection. The Helly Tech® O2 membrane allows for this jacket to be unbelievably breathable in warmer weather or high aerobic activity while maintaining a fully wind/waterproof barrier to the elements even in heavy snow or pouring rain.

Verglas 3L XP Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Have had this for about a year now, used it in all kinds of weather and i must say that it truly fulfills all my expectations for a 3L shell jacket. I live in the north of Norway (approx. 70 deg. North!) and the weather here is as demanding as it can be. It has withstood hours of rain and gusting winds. With the proper insulation you won't have any problems with this under any weather conditions. One negative thing must be the side pockets that for some reason is split in half so that small things… Full review
