Mountain Classic Anorak

rated 4 of 5 stars A simple, inexpensive but highly functional wind shell. The nylon shell is wind and water resistant but will soak through and will let air through in a stiff breeze. Zipper pulls and some cords seem intended more for town or campus but do the job. On the plus side, highly breathable and apparently built to last. Hood is best used with a ballcap or it will fall down over your eyes. In high school and until I lost it in college, the LL Bean anorak was one of my favorite shell jackets. Lightweight,… Full review

Weather Challenger 3-in-1 Jacket

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Good waterproof casual jacket. Not made to be skied in or for other technical use. Product best for wearing as a casual jacket. Excellent waterproofing.

Insulation is not very good (I live in Maine with 30 to sub… Full review

Down Sleeping Bag with DownTek, Mummy -20┬░

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A very good down winter bag with enough length to store stuff. Excellent warranty and excellent attention to details. I was looking for a -20┬░ F down bag with DWR down treatment like Dri Down or Bean's Down Tek to ward off moisture collection over several days of winter use. Anyone who has winter camped with a down bag for a week or so knows the down gradually collects respiration and perspiration ┬ámoisture, losing insulative ability and making the bag heavier. DWR treated down like Bean's Down… Full review

Trail Model Fleece Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a review of the Hunter Orange version of the basic fleece jacket, which has held up very well for two years (and counting). Its bright orange color was specifically selected for hunting season safety, but the jacket itself has been a very good, solid addition to our outerwear collection. It is suitable for three-season use, or under a shell for winter use. (Note: Though I have been selected as an LL Bean gear tester, I have yet to receive any product to test, and this jacket was purchased… Full review
