Arc'teryx Sabre Pant

rated 5 of 5 stars The best ski and snowboard pants I have ever had. These are the best ski and snowboard pants I have ever had. The fabric has been really durable. There is just the right amount of insulation. I really like the huge pockets. The only issue I have with the pants is that they are a baggier cut. Some people would find them a little too large. I am 5'11", 180 lbs, with a 34" waist and a large fits good. As a disclaimer, I am affiliated with Gore for product testing of Gore-tex products for the purpose… Full review

Sherpa Adventure Gear Shankar Belay Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Super light, super warm, super awesome. I'm 5'7" 140 lbs. Small is a snug fit, medium leaves me room to layer in super cold weather. I've had this for two winters now. I wear this jacket every day in the bitter Canadian cold. Man, I'm laughing at everybody else in those bulky/expensive Canada Goose jackets. I'm thoroughly impressed with the Primaloft insulation, pound/pound it is the warmest jacket I own.  Thunder Bay, Ontario, is really cold in the winter, with my Patagonia R3 sweater (300wt fleece)… Full review

Darn Tough Merino Boot Sock Full Cushion

rated 5 of 5 stars This is what 'smart wool' used to be, years ago! These are what Smartwool used to be, many years ago when they were first sold by L.L. Bean, but have since shifted to Asia.   The Darn Tough socks are even better made, stronger, and with a more restricted sizing structure, so it is easier to get a nice fit.  Well made, excellent wicking capability, and with the company's lifetime guarantee, they will find few returns. Wonderful socks for all four seasons.  I even use the light wool in summer,… Full review

Patagonia GI III Pant

rated 5 of 5 stars The Patagonia GI III Pant is a lightweight, quick-drying, durable pant that does a decent job of blocking the wind. The elasticized waist gives a comfortable fit, and the included belt helps keep them in place during strenuous activities. Two large handwarmer pockets, a large zippered cargo pocket on the right thigh with elastic lanyard inside, and a large zippered pocket on the right hip allow you to securely carry smaller items like a wallet, cell phone, compass, keys, etc. I picked up these pants… Full review
