Snowshoe Bag

rated 4 of 5 stars An excellent way to keep snowshoe crampons away from other gear and clothing. And a nice method of carrying snowshoes. Here is a good looking snowshoe carrying bag with two carrying straps—one for the hand, one for over the shoulder. It also has a Velcro strap at each end on the front side for carrying ski or trekking poles. Zips open in a big U. Measure's 10x36 inches and easily holds snowshoes 10 by 34...and is made of ripstop nylon. A bag like this is a nice way to keep snowshoe crampons from… Full review

Trail Model Raincoat

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Not so good. My wife and daughter and I have all owned this raincoat. All three of them have had problems with the breathable lining. It either flakes off or starts ripping and big chunks fall off. Not happy with them. L.L. Bean will of course replace them, but it's a pain to have to send them or take them back.

Maine Hunting Shoe

rated 5 of 5 stars I love LL Bean gear. This footwear especially shows the benefit from decades of making gear for the most rigorous expeditions. These boots are waterproof in standing water and very durable. I depend on them for all kinds of scouting and high adventure outings. I know I never have to worry about my feet. There are lighter boots but I have found them less durable and the waterproofing doesn't hold up. Full review

Carrabassett Ski Pants

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Loaded with features, these ski pants double as my snowshoeing and ascent pants. They are warm enough for skiing by themselves and with a mid-weight insulating layer, they are great for alpine expedition trips. Love these pants for multi-purpose winter sports. With a good mid-weight insulating layer, they are quite food for multi-day hiking and camping, and reasonable for summitting snow alpine peaks in the Adirondacks. The price is right for these feature packed snowpants! Only thing I would like,… Full review

Gore-Tex Cresta Hikers, Fabric/Leather

rated 5 of 5 stars After 10 years of ownership I am in awe of these boots. I wish i could find their "little, lighter, more breathable brother" — but it doesn't appear to exist. Yea, they're costly at $225, but they last forever, support superbly, and are insanely comfortable (aside from heat). Here's a review after living with these boots a while — like TEN YEARS. They rock. Maybe it's me, or my feet, but in a mixed bag of real hiking, light use, and even around-the-yard stuff, these are possibly the most comfortable… Full review
