The North Face Men's McMurdo Parka
Went to iceland Feb 2015. This parka was absolutely fantastic, could not feel cold at all with just a tee shirt on underneath. Temperature in rekyav in was -8 and snowing no chill felt.

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
Black Diamond Alpine Start Hoody
A nice balance of breathability, wind resistance and precip resistance — more durable than your average windshirt (but heavier too). This isn't your average ultralightweight windshirt, for one it comes in at 8.2 oz in XL, about double what my other (Patagonia Houdini) windshirt is. But there are some advantages. The Schoeller material has a nice stretch to it and is definitely going to be more durable than any of the real lightweight windshirts. It strikes a nice balance of wind resistance,… Full review
Outdoor Research Men's Incandescent Hoody
Nice, warm, light down parka. Fit/finish top notch. This is a really nice, lightweight down jacket w/ ~ 7 oz of 800 down. I find it very warm for the weight, my Large comes in at 17.1 oz. Compresses small and packs into its own stuff sack (utilizing one of the pockets). It has a good DWR finish, will shed snow and light precip nicely. I like the longer cut vs other lightweight parkas that are waist length. Has a dual direction zipper and a nice drawstring bottom. It has a handy "Napoleon" upper… Full review
Its a liquid solution you paint over the tips of your existing gloves to make them touchscreen compatible! It works great on my snowboarding gloves. I love how I didn't have to buy a new pair of glove for this function. I definitely recommend it to anyone who has a pair of gloves that don't work with their phones! I bought this product after seeing it on a review and I must say I was a little skeptical at first but it works great! I didn't think it would work on my snowboarding gloves since they… Full review
Swix Star XC 100 Split Mitt
Great for active winter use, these mitts split the difference between gloves and mittens using a 3 and 1 finger. Built to hug the hand without getting in the way they provide a thin, insulated barrier between hands and environment. Tailored into a pre-curved shape with an extra long cuff the Swix XC 100 Split Mitt looks a bit alien at first glance but after wearing them for a bit you can tell they were designed with humans in mind. The long cuff reaches well past the wrist to keep snow out. The… Full review
