Ghost UL 1

rated 2 of 5 stars Wet feet are bad, no matter the season. Other features do not make up for this major drawback. Just took my new Mountain Hardwear Ghost UL1 on its first trip. The first time I set it up the colors were a surprise in a good way. (The online photos do not do it justice.) That first setup was a time consuming hassle to figure out. Fortunately, the second time was much faster. Still, I was disappointed when I realized the room inside of the tent was non-existent, unless I was willing to use the fly… Full review

Chillwave Parka

rated 5 of 5 stars Warm, durable, fits great, layers over well. This is great for super cold days, winter camping was easy and comfortable in this thing. The fabric is nice and strong, dries quickly, cleans easily.  Sometimes I curl up in this to take naps, it's just so cozy.  The $400 price tag was worth it. Full review

Scrambler RT 35 OutDry

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A versatile lightweight backpack. First off this my first MH product (yay) and I got this backpack as a lighter and more "fun", so to speak, alternative to my more serious BD Speed Zip 33L.The Scrambler RT 35 (RT stands for Roll-Top) is basically a more featured drybag that can be used for hiking, canyoning, and is praised by climbers for its outstanding durability and lightness making this a really versatile backpack for a wide range of people. The weight-to-liter ratio is amazing and further enhanced… Full review

Spectre SL 20°

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Warm, light, packs small, feels small, and is noisy. it is a nice bag for 3+ season use. Likely due to the laminate, it gets damp in below freezing weather; using a vapor barrier liner takes care of the problem. I find that it is very confining in the shoulder area when fully zipped. The sleeping bag makes a lot of noise when shifting around or rolling over. I can't speak to its durability since I have only used it for no more than 20 nights in my five years of ownership.

Thermostatic Jacket

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This jacket is intended to be a mid-layer under a shell or an outer layer in warmer and less extreme conditions. Water resistant (to a degree). I use this jacket as a three-season puffy jacket (autumn, winter, spring). Fit and Comfort: This, along with the price, makes this jacket a must. The fit is very good—ample enough to accommodate layering, but not too boxy or roomy. I'm 5'7'', 200 pounds, and on a Large, the arm length is a tad long for me, but nothing major. For slimmer people, maybe try… Full review
