Pinole 20°

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Far too cold for the temperature rating. We bought four sleeping bags with the same temperature rating: two from The North Face (NF) for our young children and two Pinoles from Mountain Hardwear (MH). The children sleep warm in -7˚C. However, we feel already cold at about 5-10˚C, even with thermo-underwear, socks, and fleece jackets in the bag. The bags are roomy, but necessarily so, and always feel cold to the touch. Other issues some people are mentioning such as the zipper are trivial compared… Full review

Castil Convertible Pant

rated 4 of 5 stars A very versatile, strong multi-use pant. Great for hiking or being outdoors, but great for being in town as well. A very affordable and functional pant for moderate to warm weather. This is my second pair of the Mountain Hardwear Castil Convertible Pant in the last eight months. First off, they are a great pant on the trail or off. They are a great look for everyday wear as well as hiking apparel, which is nice. I have been fortunate enough to run them through plenty of mud, and have slid them down… Full review

Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Super lightweight, warm jacket that has served me well until recently. The company logo began to wear off, which did not affect its intended purpose, but then a couple of stitches broke loose too so I sent it in for warranty service. It was less than 3 years old and based on some unfavorable warranty reviews I wasn't sure what to expect. Within three days of MH receiving the jacket I got an email telling me a credit of $320 was being issued to me. Within a week's time after that I received a new… Full review

Trango 2

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Awesome, bullet proof design (not literally). The first night I ever used this we got dumped on by rain, since then it has been in snow and desert winds. Setup is pretty easy. Usually my wife does it on her own. The fly is annoying due to so many hooks, and it requires lots of stakes as well.  It pitches nice and tight and sheds snow rain and it a great shape for wind.  The floor is somewhat light and I HIGHLY recommend using a footprint. In sub-freezing temperatures we have woken up frosted on… Full review

Thermostatic Hooded Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars Thinking we would have another very cold New England winter, and really liking my packable vest, I thought I should purchase a packable jacket, to provide an extra layer of warmth under my anorak. Well, we have had only a few below zero days, but have had enough variable and cold days to determine that I really do like this jacket...both as an insulating layer, and as a stand-alone light and comfortable parka. I purchased this on sale at a great markdown, so color selection was a bit limited, though… Full review
