StretchDown Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great jacket. Super lightweight and packs down very small. It layers extremely well under a shell for skiing or hiking. The stretch is extremely underrated; the entire jacket really moves with you. Not warm enough below 25 degrees when not active. Great jacket. I'm 5 foot 6 and 165 lbs, I wear a medium. The jacket is just the right size to be able to wear a fleece or sweatshirt underneath the jacket. Sleeves are a little long, but not too long. The jacket stretches much more than I anticipated.

Pinole 20°

rated 3 of 5 stars Decent bag with some concerns. I bought this bag because I wanted something a little smaller. Sacrificing warmth I went for a three-season bag with the option of adding a liner. If in higher elevations, as I usually am, some long johns and merino were enough to keep me toasty. My only issues are the zipper must be carefully opened and closed so as to not get caught, which it is prone to do. The hood system is simple and effective, but being a spinner when I sleep I tend not to use it or else I get… Full review

Transition Zip T

rated 5 of 5 stars I would echo all of these reviews. This is the best piece of three- season gear I own! I would echo all of these reviews. This is the best piece of three-season gear I own. Its weight and performance are unmatched by anything else. The only thing it lacks is that it's not waterproof, but pair with a light rain jacket and a short sleeve technical t-shirt and you can be prepared on the trail for almost anything from 40-80 degrees rain or shine. Paired with a long sleeve baselayer and a vest and you… Full review

Light Wedge 2

rated 5 of 5 stars Loved this tent, spent a good portion of the last 12 years in it. Twelve years, a few hundred nights, more than a few hundred miles, tons of memories and good times.A final adieu to an old friend... After all that, a few reseal jobs, and some duct taped accidents, she finally gave up the ghost after remnants of Hurricane Nate were her match. Moisture seeping through the floor, recently resealed fly still leaking, a pole snapped. But with all that, and an emergency poncho over the pole hole, I still… Full review

Monkey Man Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars Good one. Very warm for dynamic activities, still has its role in a winter layering system. The jacket is very stretchy, allowing full range of arm movement, and it has some strategic Polartec Powerstrech panels in key areas. Shines in chilling autumn temperatures when you can just pair it with a t-shirt. Has a little wind resistance. Very soft and pleasant. Full review
