Trango 2

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent winter tent. Waterproof, bombproof, roomy, lots of pockets, big vestibules, heavy. The Trango 2 is a very durable and reliable tent. If I know I'm going to be in for nasty weather, I bring this titan. It stays warm inside. It vents pretty well. You can cook in the vestibule. On really cold nights when your body is flushing out excess fluid, you can actually urinate in the vestibule and exit on the other side in the morning. Sounds gross but the alternative at -30° is even worse. I've… Full review

Lamina 20°

rated 4 of 5 stars Is my go-to bag for a couple of seasons now for some good reasons... but the ZIPPER! I have a love/hate relationship with this bag. It has been my favorite synthetic bag I've owned. It presses down to 8 x 10. It's super silky comfortable. It has a great shape. The collar holds heat well. the compression sack is a really nice 3 strap/1clip design so you can unclip one strap and pull the lid back. The bag has a small pocket.  The zipper sticks HORRIBLY! Every 3-5 inches it sticks if you are trying… Full review

EV 2

rated 5 of 5 stars A specialized mountaineering tent for use primarily at high altitudes, or where the user can expect to encounter sub-zero weather and/or arid conditions. It is in its element at very high elevations. Most objections to this tent are by individuals who do not understand the technical characteristics of the tent, or employed it in conditions for which it was not intended. One should check the weather report and consider taking a different tent if the forecast calls for rain and/or the temp will drop… Full review

Desna Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent light fleece for midlayer insulation when it's cold and windy or outer layer when it's not windy. Works well for what it's designed for. I've had this fleece for going on three years now and use it on a regular basis for everything from peak bagging to xc skiing to mountain biking to dog walking. All in Alaska, at temps from +50°F (outer layer for anything other than rain) to -45°F (mid layer while xc skiing). I think the other reviewer might have misunderstood the purpose of this jacket… Full review

Ampato Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Ampato Jacket is a versatile hardshell using Mountain Hardwear's Dry.Q Elite technology. It's waterproof and durable and holds up well climbing and backpacking. Fabric: The Ampato jacket is a 2-layer shell using Mountain Hardwear's high end Dry.Q Elite technology. The fabric is waterproof and breathable and also durable. I've worn this pack while climbing a dihedral and there was no wear from putting my shoulder and back against the rock as I shimmied my way up the climb. One thing to note,… Full review
