Hooded Phantom Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Like wearing a cloud of warmth, the Phantom Hooded Jacket keeps you toasty in the coldest temperatures and packs down small enough to bring on every trip. Highly recommended for anyone pursuing outdoor fun in very cold environments. I received the Mountain Hardwear Phantom Hooded Jacket for testing towards the end of Fall 2014 and tested it from that point through Mid-February 2015 in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. This time period saw temperatures ranging from 40 degrees above 0 to 30 degrees… Full review

Kelvinator Hooded Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars The Kelvinator is a warm, lightweight, compressible down jacket that has become my go-to in the backcountry this winter! The abundance of snow and persistently below-zero temperatures that have defined winter in New England this year have prompted my search for the ultimate puffy jacket this season. (Consequently, I have spent many an evening basking in the glow of a Trailspace search.) I was initially drawn to the Kelvinator by its price tag. Full retail is around $280, which I found to be well… Full review

Minalist Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Minalist Jacket incorporates the latest Dry Q Elite fabric ,which keeps you dry inside.

Overall view with left chin zipper open Showing internal hood pulls running outside into hood; also chamois lined chin flap. Adjusters are hidden in the hood at the top of the collar.  You adjust by pinching the adjuster… Full review

EV 2

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great single wall tent for real!! Winter season. Keep this in mind: This tent is designed for high altitude and winter season (especially under freezing). Not for trail hikes. If someone has experience in winter season backpacking, with snow and strong wind, will know how construction of tent is important. Normally in strong winds, tent skin can touch the face through night, but EV2 never does. And we do not need bug screen in the snow field. If you check details of this tent, easily now this is… Full review

EV 2

rated 5 of 5 stars Windproof, light, and warm. It's shelter from the storm. Top notch one-man, one-season tent. I have lived in Alaska for 35 years now, and I have REI QuarterDomes for three seasons. I love them. Please understand the Mountain Hardwear EV2 is a ONE-SEASON tent!  That one season is winter, and by winter I do not mean rain like a California winter. I mean ice, snow, and wind.   Honestly, I don't know it this tent is rainproof. I have had six inches of snow dumped on it without a problem. (Although… Full review
