Thermostatic Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very light mid-layer jacket for active outdoors use. Mountain Hardwear recommends it for climbing and hiking. Can also be used as a standalone jacket, provided the conditions permit and you have a good base layer. I bought it for snowshoeing and hiking. Fit & Comfort: The fit is standard. I'm 5'9" and about 190 pounds and a large allows me to wear a fleece underneath. I like the more ample fit. It's a very, very comfy jacket. If in doubt, I would err on getting a smaller size if sleeve size… Full review

Fluid 18

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very lightweight and sleek pack perfect for day hikes, especially in tight bush. I bought this pack to replace my old Asolo light day pack. I use two different day packs depending on the circumstances, my other is a North Face Terra 40. This pack is the first one I have tried that is made of the newer, thinner nylon, altough it is still thicker than the thinnest stuff they use. I have been using this pack weekly for close to 6 months now, although it was bought about a year ago. My first impression… Full review

Scrambler 30 OutDry

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This backpack is a great day hike bag, for use in wet or dry climates, keeping your stuff dry. No frills design looks clean and is super functional.

My dry bags that I normally use for kayaking were back in the States, but I didn't need them with this backpack!  Taking this bag hiking is a nice no-frills, cleanly… Full review

Dome Meritage

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent warmth, great wind block, super ear coverage, and super comfy material. I've bought this for my girlfriend on sale and went back to get one for myself! If you are seeing one around on sale, grab it. It's warm, blocks wind, and covers my ears like no other hat, even my Icebreaker.  Full review

Drifter Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars Awesome pack made to access with ease. Carry the the kitchen sink in this one! Carries butter cup smooth! My fave pack! This is so well thought out it ridiculous! I've used this pack for years. Hiking and traveling. Perfect for three days or months or city travel if you're a minimalist. A tiny bit heavy for a day hike. You don't really need that much room. Great support. Needs compression straps at the brain compartment. You can travel the world with this pack alone and it fits in the overhead. … Full review
