Mammut MTR 201 Tech Shirt
The Mammut MTR 201 Tech Shirt is as tech as its name...the following is a self-described Luddite's take on a shirt that only an engineer with Asperger could love. Introduction I will start by making it clear that everything being the same I prefer cheap and simple gear. However...as someone who went to school for a long time to study technological change I also understand the need for manufacturers to continually push the design of gear so that it is both safer and more effective for users. In many… Full review
Ibex Men's U-Sixty T
My absolute favorite hiking shirt. About eleven years ago, I became a convert to merino wool shirts for hiking. At the time, I found most synthetic shirts to be less than comfortable. They felt hot and sticky and plasticky (is that even a word?), and not that pleasant to wear. When I ran across a Smartwool T on sale, I got one and tried it out, and was hooked. The Ibex U-Sixty T-shirt has become my absolute favorite. The feel is super soft and light, with excellent temperature control. It feels… Full review
Outdoor Research Men's Helium II Jacket
Fantastic lightweight rain jacket, but at the cost of adjustability. I picked up the Helium II as a replacement for my old RedHed rain jacket which finally gave out after 7 years of abuse. While I have only had the Helium II for a few months now, the amount of rain and wind we've had lately has given me plenty of opportunities to test it! FIT: I ordered my Helium II one size too large with the intention of layering it over a down jacket while hiking. Even with this in mind, the fit is very nice. Full review
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
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
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. Fit: The Plasma is a fairly slim fit jacket, as much as down can be "slim fit". It still looks puffy, but doesn't feel baggy at all. Overall,… Full review
