Outdoor Research Men's Backstop Sensor Gloves

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Updated version adds sensor and a bit more thickness. Used an earlier version for many years and liked them a lot.  The glove still fills the bill: Nice and lightweight; snug fit. Windstopper still on the back of the hand is the key feature. This update adds sensor fingertips and slightly thicker fleece. Nice in cold windy conditions. The earlier version had a bit more silicone on palm-side and under fingers, which aided grip. Will see how well it holds up over time overall. Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Alti Mitts

rated 5 of 5 stars I’ve used my Alti Mitts for years and have found them to be of the highest quality. They have outperformed every other mitt I have owned prior to them. Fit and Comfort: Although dexterity is somewhat limited in a thicker mitt, I am more than willing to trade a lack of digit wiggling for warmer hands. I live in MN where temps often fall below 0°F. From my 5 years of experience with the Alti mitt, they perform exceptionally well in temperatures down to -20°F (assuming little activity—e.g. sitting… Full review

Swiss Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

rated 2 of 5 stars Over-rated, over-sold, and bad customer service. These socks were a present and the gifter is extremely disappointed by the result. The toes sleeves are the exact same length which means none of the toes fit properly. The big toe sleeve is very narrow so it barely fits on the actual toe. The material is much weaker than advertised and visible damage ocurred after a single trail run. The grip dots fell off from just walking in a living room with floorboards. The company is trying to ride the minimal… Full review

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A wind or rain jacket that will keep you dry in the toughest downpours. A large hood and no zippers keep the weather out. The Craghoppers Woodridge Cagoule is perfect for travel and a variety of outdoor activities. Basically, a cagoule is a lightweight type of anorak. That description fits this jacket perfectly. Constructed of a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) fabric comprised of a treated cotton outer layer laminated with a Polyamide inner layer, resulting in a breathable waterproof jacket. A… Full review
