Arc'teryx Men's Sidewinder SV Jacket
Would not recommend. Product failed and I had really poor customer service experiences with the Arc'teyrx. Disappointed with the performance. Went on a ski/snowboarding trip and the jacket failed at the left arm seam. This was an obvious failure of the arm stitching and I really expected more from this jacket which was marketed as being one of the most durable snow jackets. I didn't have any major falls beyond what is normal and the jacket was purchased less than a year ago and only used for 10-12… Full review
Zeal Slate Goggles
A medium fit, over-the-glass goggle with a polarized lens. Helmet compatible with an impact resistant frame. Works well on sun scale of cloudy to bright sun. The Zeal Optics Slate goggle series is available in a variety of lens types and colors that can be paired with many different frame colors. The pair I received for testing were Upland Grass frames fitted with a Polarized Automatic lens. These lenses feature a VLT (visible light transmission) of 18-33% which for me provided excellent visibility… Full review
Arc'teryx Rho LTW Neck Gaiter
This is a lightweight and very warm gaiter. I have brought it on my last three trips snowshoeing. This gaiter is comfy and fits perfectly (one size fits all). It is breathable material and also did not make me sweat. It kept me warm when I needed it and was easy to take off and store in coat pocket when I did not need it. Full review
Chaos CTR Glacier Air Protect Glove
A great lightweight ski glove suitable for spring skiing or winter nordic use. Touch screen compatible index finger. For those of us who ski well into May, the need arises for gloves that protect your hands while not overheating them. I was lucky enough to receive a pair of the CTR Glacier Air Protect gloves for testing just as temperatures started to rise at my home ski area Squaw Valley. With daytime temperatures rising into the mid 50's at the ski area wearing my regular winter ski gloves was… Full review
Ibex Meru Hat
After six months of wearing the Ibex's Meru Hat, I can confidently state this is the most comfortable beanie I have ever worn. This quality merino wool hat has done the job exceptionally well. Soon after starting to wear the Meru, I stopped grabbing other hats out of my closet. As I stated in the summary, this is the most comfortable beanie I have used, and I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone shopping around for a wool beanie. Testing: I wore the Meru throughout the winter of 2016-2017, including… Full review
Montane Minimus 777 Pull-On
The Montane Minimus 777 is a 3-layer waterproof breathable jacket that eschews weight by using 7 denier fabrics for the membrane, inner and outer face (hence the name). It is spartan by design, but at only 4.7 oz still packs a hood, elasticized hem and cuffs, singular chest pocket, and water resistant zip. It would be best for trail running, thru hikers, or UL backpackers. FIT *For reference I am 6 foot, 170 lbs and received a men's large (42" chest, 34" waist). The fit of this jacket is spot on.

Sierra Designs Elite Rain Chaps
What a cool idea! This, with the cagoule, is the coolest rain system ever. You have to have been caught in diluvien rain with a full pack on with several more peaks to ascend to appreciate this one. I recommend wearing them and adjusting them before your trip, because once properly adjusted, they easily slide over wet boots and clip onto your pants. I got to test the entire system on a hike in the Sierra foothills where I got caught in heavy rain and high winds and it performed beautifully. … Full review
