Mountain Equipment Crux LS Crew
The Mountain Equipment Crux LS Crew tee is an excellent synthetic (polyester) baselayer suitable for year round use. It features Polygiene anti-microbial technology which works reasonably well to limit odour. The main selling point for me is the excellent construction and durability which has impressed me over the past two years. From Mountain Equipment: A close fitting tee that efficiently wicks moisture away from the skin and dries quickly on the move. Built in Polygiene anti-microbial technology… Full review
Voormi Access Pullover
The Access Pullover is a sharp-looking merino wool mid-layer that is perfect for being active on cooler days. Unfortunately, after testing two of these pullovers, this tester has found the quality to be substandard, developing holes in the seams after only a few washes. This con strongly negates any recommendation to spend $200 on this garment. Let me start by saying, I wanted to love this shirt. It arrived on a hot July day, and I immediately began wishing for cold weather to wear it in. So I stowed… Full review
The Woolx X704 1/4 zip heavyweight merino pullover made from 100% Australian Merino Wool (400g/m2, 18.5 Micron) is impressively warm for its size (volume and weight). The attractive design and well-fitting athletic cut, combined with its excellent performance in a wide range of conditions make it an ideal mid layer for all manner of outdoor pursuits. From Woolx: A heavyweight ¼ zip pullover made from 100% Australian Merino Wool (400g/m2, 18.5 Micron). Fit/Adjustability: My measurements are a 43-inch… Full review
Marmot Men's PreCip Jacket
Great lightweight cheap rain jacket. Fantastic rain jacket. So much so that after losing my first one a month ago, I have just forked out for a replacement. I have also $400 eVent jacket sitting in my cupboard and use it for day to day wear. I picked the Precip as I really wanted a jacket made from breathable material and that's properly vented. I have walked in the rain just in a t-shirt all too often because of overheating. This jacket solved that problem and at a reasonable price. Full review
The North Face Men's McMurdo Parka
Went to Iceland in February 2015. This parka was absolutely fantastic, could not feel cold at all with just a tee shirt on underneath. Temperature in Rekyav was -8° and snowing, no chill felt. Went out of town to Gullfoss waterfalls, temperature was -15° and still warm in this jacket. We went on snowmobile for about an hour and temperature was measured at -22°. This jacket coupled with North Face Montana Gloves was faultless. I actually sweated. Well done, North Face. Would recommend this parka… Full review
MontBell Men's Alpine Light Down Parka
Warm and light, this is a great down jacket for shoulder season use — very good bargain too! This is my go-to down jacket for shoulder season use; it's usually too warm for summer use and there are plenty of lighter options. With over 4 ounces of 800 down, this jacket is warm! Not sure where the original review came from, but mine in size Large is 12.8 oz, pretty svelte for such a warm jacket. The hood is nicely cut and adjustable. Two nice zippered pockets that are lined w/ fleece. I really… Full review
REI Men's Triad Parka
I recently purchased this high quality 3/4 length coat at the REI store in Paramus. It has an amazing fit and is extremely warm in an outside temperature of 18 degrees. I highly recommend this excellent garment. If you can find one, buy it. Full review
