Darn Tough Merino Boot Sock Full Cushion
This is what 'smart wool' used to be, years ago! These are what smart wool used to be, many years ago when they were first sold by LL 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
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
Patagonia Men's Alpine Houdini
Hello, backpackers. I fully agree with the last review. I would just add one important thing: I bought it and was very satisfied and with the nice light blue color too. However I noticed that when tightening the back hood elastic it is OK on the top of the head, but the cheeks and chin are widely open to the rain that comes in. There are no elastics going up to the zip that tightens around the face. That's why I give 3.5 stars. Full review
Outdoor Research Men's Helium II Jacket
Now my go-to trail running and tramping jacket. A great performer. This is a great jacket. I'm 6'3" and 110kgs (242 lbs). Naturally I wear the xl. It is long enough in the arms and still allows some room in the body. The hood fits well and has a handy pull cord at the back to ensure a good fit. It's a functional garment. It has one not particularly useful pocket at the chest and another internal pocket which doubles as the stuff sack. It is designed to be minimalist and it works perfectly for… Full review
