REI Activator Gaiter
Nicely designed to stay down over running shoes, but they wear out fast. The gaiter material is slightly stretchy and breathes well, but the cords that snug the gaiters down over the foot aren't tough enough and it looks like the grommets will pull out after prolonged use. Remember the old, pseudo-Chinese saying: “Man who eat cracker in bead have crumby sleep!”? A runner’s corollary to that might be: “Man who run in sand get sand in shoes!” I don’t like running on asphalt, so here in… Full review
Mishmi Takin Qaras Waterproof Soft Shell Jacket
An outer shell for the active kinds. Mishmi Takin were the outdoor gear partners for the 2016 LA ULTRA - THE HIGH ultra-marathon, and I was lucky to have a race branded yellow color Qaras. Temperatures in Ladakh can hit an extreme 40° degree C hot in day and drop to minus 10° C at night above 15,000 feet. For such extreme conditions, Qaras did pretty well. It is though OK for temps about minus 4-5° C. Up-till here as well, you need to layer up to protect yourself as breathable nature of the jacket… Full review
Gordini Men's The Polar Mitt
Cozy warm interior... on still days. Roomy fit allows for bulky liners or chemical warmers. Overall, this isn't a bad mitten. It's super cozy and soft feeling on bare skin and the gauntlet is easy to cinch down, even when wearing a mitten. I have very long fingers and sized my glove according to finger length, not palm width. The result was a mitten that has a lot of room around the palm; great for wearing bulky liners or popping in a chemical warmer on top of a thin liner. The leather palm and… Full review
XPOSURZONE Packable Down Quilted Puffer Jacket
Love this jacket. Purchased both the jacket and two vests. Seems to be more down in the vests, but all three of these garments are well made and extremely comfortable. I particularly like the smooth and a little shiny nylon material used. Very stylish and feels great. Would buy more of these if they get the larger sizes back in stock. Navy blue camo is an understated camo pattern, which I really like and goes great with blue jeans. Full review
Toad&Co Cache Cargo Pant
A great dual purpose pant with the feel of light canvas. As I am always on the lookout for clothes that can do double duty I was pleased when I got the chance to test a pair of Cache Cargo pants by Toad&Co during a recent trip to India. Knowing I would need pants that could stand up to hiking, walking around town, and would still be nice enough to wear to restaurants the Cache Cargos seemed to fill the bill. Constructed of organic cotton and recycled polyester with just a small amount of spandex,… Full review
Patagonia Men's Nano Puff Bivy Pullover
It keeps you really hot and it keeps you away from wet. But after ONLY two months that I have bought it, the zip didn't work! Moreover the zip created damage in the texture. This wasn't so funny! SO I decided to change it with another pullover brands! Full review
Lands' End Classic Squall Jacket
Great coat if I could get it zipped. I got the Squall for Christmas. I love the coat except for one thing that drives me crazy. Sometimes it will take 7-10 tries to get it zipped. When I lay it flat on the table I can zip it almost every time. But when I put it on, the zipper won't catch on the bottom. So Land's End is sending me a new one. I hope the zipper works better.
