Elkommando Kilt

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great product for summer hiking and unrestricted movement. I wore this on the AT this weekend and loved it. However, you do get a few looks and some comments. Do not worry and come up with some snappy comebacks. As for the fit, I ordered a large and my waist is a 35-36 and it fit just right. However, if I gain any more weight they will be really tight. It has an adjustable belt but there is not much adjustment in the waist. It appears waterproof/resistant but I have not worn it in the… Full review

Snowtastic 28 Backpack

rated 3 of 5 stars The Mountain Hardwear Snowtastic 28 pack is a good idea that just wasn't executed very well. Some of the flaws can be fixed with very little time and money, others leave me scratching my head and asking "why did they choose to do it that way?" As far as carrying capacity, I'd say it's great for day trips, but accessing your stuff isn't the easiest. I bought the MH Snowtastic 28 because I want to get a little more adventurous in my snowshoeing this year, and my Camelbak pack doesn't hold much more… Full review

Direkt 2

rated 5 of 5 stars This tent is every bit as waterproof and breathable as advertised, very strong also. My other 4-season tent weighs seven pounds and is made for three people, so when I got serious about alpine climbing I wanted something lighter and faster. The Direkt had such good reviews and only weighs a tad over two pounds, so I figured I couldn't go wrong. This tent is about as heavy as two bivy bags, so why not use it instead of one of those horrible things? Setup The Direkt is a simple two-pole dome, which… Full review

Compressor Pant

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Great winter coverover pants. Easy to put on/off. Would recommend to others. I purchased the Mt Hardwear Compressor Pants as overpants for use while climbing in Alaska. They performed well and would recommend them to others. I have since used them on multi-day backcounty ski trips where the temps were dipping below 0 at night. These pants have full length zips so it is easy to put them on and take off. They are insulated so the added warmth is great on cold night. No need to take off your climbing… Full review

Winter Wander Pant

rated 5 of 5 stars My favourite hiking pant! Try them, you won't be disappointed. I found these pants on sale a couple years ago and thought I would give them a try. Wow, sure glad I bought them. I absolutely love them! As they are named 'Winter Wander Pant' don't let that mislead you. Yes, they are great for winter as they are a little thicker than your average pant (as compared to the Marmot scree for ex.) but they are great for all year use when out hiking in the mountains.   As we all know, it's not as warm in… Full review
