MontBell Superior Down Parka

rated 5 of 5 stars Montbell's updated version of its U.L. Down Inner Parka, the Superior Down Parka, is an unbelievably warm ultralight down hoody.The Superior Down Parka is very affordable and it keeps you shockingly warm for its sub-eight ounce weight. This down hoody is plenty warm enough to be a stand alone jacket to 35 degrees, but can be a really warm mid-layer in colder weather when paired with the appropriate outer shell. It is a great three-season jacket that I am sure you will see tons of thru-hikers carrying… Full review

New Balance Performance Underwear 9 Inch Inseam Boxer Brief

rated 5 of 5 stars Long inseam briefs have made a huge difference for me in stopping inner leg chaffing, in rough terrain requiring leg lifting and plunging over obstacles. Half (or less) the cost of equivalent Under Armour and ExOfficio options, and highly durable, these have become my standard "go-to" gear. Ever have a hike, with unexpectedly rough terrain that resulted in chaffing in the upper, inner thigh area? Unfortunately I have experienced this once to the degree that bandages were needed for a week afterwards.

Columbia Freezer Zero Bandana

rated 3 of 5 stars 5-Star Fabric and Concept: This bandana has wonderful fabric, and has so much going for it technically. Wonderful fabric and concept. 5-Stars as a deluxe cloth napkin (but too expensive for this use). 3-Star Construction: Frustratingly, it's just a little too small to be very effective for use as a bandana. A small person will benefit from many more uses than I can.

L.L.Bean Men's Carrabassett Ski Pants

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Loaded with features, these ski pants double as my snowshoeing and ascent pants. They are warm enough for skiing by themselves and with a mid-weight insulating layer, they are great for alpine expedition trips. Love these pants for multi-purpose winter sports. With a good mid-weight insulating layer, they are quite food for multi-day hiking and camping, and reasonable for summitting snow alpine peaks in the Adirondacks. The price is right for these feature packed snowpants! Only thing I would like,… Full review

Loki Men's Mountain Hoodie

rated 5 of 5 stars I really, really, like this jacket!!! So, does my youngest son! Great product!!! I've had mine for 7 years now and the blue outer is just now starting to show signs of wear near the cuff. I've used the jacket from fall to spring for the last 7 years and the only jacket I own for protection. Great with t-shirt, long sleeve tee, or heavier pullover used as first layer under the Loki Jacket. I used it at work when working outdoors (Craig, Co and it gets cold there) for several hours with no break to… Full review

Outdoor Research Ghost Rain Hat

rated 4 of 5 stars Best all around outdoor hat that I've found yet for our moist, often unpredictable, Pacific Northwest USA weather! Three-season especially rain (but not summer) use, with adjustment options, giving unparalleled flexibility. Classic outback form styling. Had Indiana Jones lived out here, the Ghost might well have been his hat! Almost perfect already and my guess is that later generations may soon be. It was talk my wife into me getting this or wear her purple n' black Seattle Sombrero.  Her S'brero… Full review

Oakley Heritage Pipe Glove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A good balance of fit, dexterity and warmth in the Shoulder Seasons. I have several pairs of gloves from thin liners to gore-type super mittens. In between those extremes, I use the Oakley Heritage Pipe Gloves. Most of the time I don't need my mittens and liners are too thin, so I like having gloves I can be active in and still use my hands for tying knots and reaching into my pockets. I absolutely despise taking my gloves off for every little thing, so the Pipe Gloves fit a rather large niche with… Full review
