Triozone Pants

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This fleece pant was purchased as an alternative to insulated gore-tex type pants, for activities such as hiking, snowshoeing, kicksledding, and skijoring. I have found the pants to perform better than I had expected, and they are used 4-5 times per week. I would recommend this product, especially if it can be obtained on sale (as is currently). These pants are very comfortable. I have previously owned fleece pants that pilled, and the fleece deteriorated...these pants have maintained their fleece… Full review

Microlight Solo

rated 5 of 5 stars Outstanding tent by L.L. Bean. I used this tent for a 2011-2012 section hike of the entire A.T. The tent is super lightweight and fast setup. Skip the Velcro and just use the color coded tabs. If you are color blind, put duck tape with matching letters. A to A, B to B. KISS. It was outstanding and kept me dry during the worst rain and snow. During black fly season, the mesh screen kept bugs out and in the heat of summer it allowed the slightness breeze to cool me down. This tent was the envy of… Full review

Traverse Alpine Anorak

rated 2.5 of 5 stars This jacket was bought to replace an old (and falling apart), no longer waterproof, off-brand anorak, which I loved for winter hiking and snowshoeing. I waited until this jacket went on sale at L.L. Bean, and was a bit dubious, due to the less than stellar reviews on the Bean site. But with free returns shipping, I thought it worth a try. It took two attempts to get the correct one, but now I think this jacket will suit me fine for my winter adventures. I like anoraks for winter use....my old one… Full review

Down Sleeping Bag with DownTek, Rectangular 20°

rated 4 of 5 stars Very happy with the flexibility we have with these sleeping bags. Good product! There are very few conventional rectangular sleeping bags out there that are insulated with down. You'll find a few if you look where hunters shop; and you'll find a few in the Western Mountaineering catalog. Other than those I think these L.L. Bean sleeping bags are the main option for rectangular bag dimensions, and flexibility, without the bulk and weight of synthetic insulation. My wife and I have had a pair of these… Full review

Trail Model Raincoat

rated 5 of 5 stars I have been using this raincoat for about a year and I highly recommend it. The best part about this raincoat is the hood, in my opinion. It has a velcro flap in the back that allows to adjust the depth of the hood. It has a two-way zipper, which is excellent for those days when I need to walk faster, and need as much freedom of movement as I can get. Overall this coat is boxy, and I recommend sizing down for a more form-fitting experience. I have long arms and this coat has sleeves long enough… Full review
