Drymax Maximum Protection Trail Running Sock
Superb, all I can say. Bought three pair from the local sports shop and got one pair free. They are cool in winter and toes tingle slightly but no blisters, I wear them all day, approx 9 hours in running shoes. Feet don't smell. They wear very well with no sign of any wear after 10 months. I average approx 50km a week walking and 35km per week running—totals approx 4,000km for the year, testimony to itself. Comfy in running shoes in all weather conditions. Fit: Fit as noted on packaging. Comfort: Extremely… Full review
Tilley LTM6 Airflo Hat
Bought my Tilley today!!!! I have wanted a Tilley for years. I wouldn't buy it because it cost too much. I just recently had a life threatening health experience. I'm gonna be fine. But it's time to cross off my bucket list items. I'll start with the Tilley I bought today. I'm excited. Full review
Celitas Design Alpaca Vest
Inca approved and tested! For 8 ounces in XL, to me this is a stellar value. As basic as it gets. I used this in cold offices and on wet/cold evenings in the spring and summer here in New England when temperatures would teeter-totter. The hollow fibers are warmer and lighter than wool. I look forward to doing further testing in the fall. This was my idea for a nano-air on the cheap to be used with my (already purchased) Arc'teryx Squamish. Full review
Black Diamond Men's Hot Forge Hybrid Hoody
Outstanding lightweight, comfortable, and versatile jacket, copes with a range of weather conditions and still performs when damp. High quality materials and workmanship. Great fit, very comfortable with soft material around the neck. Best to get a size larger than normal though, which helps with layering. Hood can go under a helmet, but despite that is not bulky without one and tightens down efficiently to a snug fit. Can serve really well as an outer layer in moderately cool conditions and a mid… Full review
LightHeart Gear Rain Pants
Great pants, limited sizing. Silicon coated nylon with polyurethane treatment waterproof to 2000mm of water head. Zippers on the legs for easy on and easy off. Not in the least breathable, but very waterproof. Not much to say, you put them on when it rains and you don't get as wet. The big downside is that they come in fixed sizes with an inseam of 31 inches for extra small, 32 for small, and 33 medium to XXX-large, making them very long for anyone under 5'9". You can order custom inseam, but… Full review
LightHeart Gear Rain Jacket
No more wetting out. This jacket weighs about 7 ounces and comes with a brimmed hood, front zipper, and armpit zippers. Depending on color choice it is made from sil nylon or polyurethane treated sil nylon. There are elastics in the sleeves and a pull cord in the waist to help with a snug fit. Breathable rain gear sometimes wets out and doesn't always vent enough to keep the sweat from building up. This jacket gives up on breathability, other than the zippered armpits, and focuses on a very… Full review
ExOfficio Sol Cool Boxer Brief
Jade infused fabric pulls moisture from your body for a cool sensation. Slim fit does not bunch up. I was sent a pair of ExOfficio Sol Cool boxer briefs in late January for testing and review. I actually tried to wear them during the winter but found that they were just too cool for comfort at that time of the year. Once things started to warm up I gave them a thorough workout. Comprised of 52% Cotton, 42% Nylon, 6% Spandex, the nylon has been infused with Jade, yes, Jade the rock. Apparently,… Full review
