Croakies Suiters

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Croakies Suiters take the hassle out of having glasses in the backcountry! No more misplacing, fumbling with, or dropping your glasses! I recommend this product to... well, everyone! Seriously! Now here is another one of those products that you don't think is necessary... until you start using it. I've seen people using these, or similar products, for many years. I never gave them a second thought- I considered them... unnecessary! Well now that I have them, I can't go in the backcountry without… Full review

prAna Sutra Pant

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Very comfortable for daily use or yoga. I currently own two pairs of PrAna's Sutra Pants. These pants are extremely comfortable, but do come with a few drawbacks. COMFORT: The comfort of the Sutra Pants is precisely why I now own two pairs. These things are like wearing pajamas around all day. They are by far the most comfortable pants I own. They have proven themselves to be good pants for hiking, general use, and fishing (they flex with you and dry quickly when wet) as well as for yoga workouts… Full review

MontBell Men's Plasma 1000 Down Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars Extremely lightweight jacket for ultralight backpackers. I should start by saying that the Montbell Plasma 1000 is a new jacket for me. I purchased it a few weeks ago for ultra lightweight warmth while backpacking through New England this fall. In the brief while that I have owned it, I have been able to take it out a few times and get some initial impressions. I'll try to get more in the way of photos the next time I'm on a group hike and the temperature drops. Fit:  The Plasma is a fairly slim… Full review

Avalanche Wear Mogul Pant

rated 5 of 5 stars Most comfortable pants EVER. Bought a pair of these last week and I really don't want to wear anything else now. The fit is excellent and form flattering. The outer material is smooth polyester and seems to block wind as a previous reviewer mentioned. The inside is soft cozy fleece. Not sure if the waistband has elastic or what, but it is padded for comfort and hugs your waist without pinching at all. The zip pocket is a great size and large enough to carry credit cards, tissues, lip balm, etc. Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Helium Hybrid Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars As the name implies, this is a hybrid between a windshirt and a rain jacket. It's lightweight jacket and a good choice when the forecast looks good, but as we all know can change. I was intrigued when I came across this garment—a hybrid between a windshirt and a rain jacket. I often head out to the mountains with the forecast favorable, but know that mountain showers are always a possibility and thus carry both a windshirt and a hardshell—but rarely wearing the hardshell. This garment gives… Full review

Patagonia Men's Merino Air Hoody

rated 5 of 5 stars Every base layer needs a hood. I could hardly tell it was there it stretches and breathes so well. The Merino Air Hoody is easily one of the best products I have reviewed so far. I have often repeated the advice, "it's no good with no hood." Hats are okay but they get lost (kids take them) and make your head itch. Most of my jackets have hoods, my insulating layers have hoods, if I could buy socks with a hood, I'd do it. That is why I was so stoked to finally try out a base layer that features such… Full review

Lorpen Men's T3 Light Hiker

rated 5 of 5 stars These socks are great for hiking in summer. The moisture management is excellent. This is a great light and fast sock. The Lorpen socks are well made, and have held up well. Off trail, they could be a bit heavier, but they aren't supposed to be used so aggressively. They are perfect socks for summer on the AT, the moisture management of the socks is excellent! I used the socks this summer for everything from walking on a paved road to full off-trail bushwacking on very steep mountainsides. Full review
