Patagonia Men's R4 Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Plush, good looking, comfortable, warm, and windproof. What more could you want in a fleece jacket? I've had my R4 for about 12 years.  It has been put through the ringer.  It is in every way still as plush, warm, and durable as the day I got it.  It is inherently a good looking jacket.  Perfect for wearing around town on cold days.I do not always take it on backpacking trips.  It does not pack or compress well and it takes up considerable volume in a pack.  But in the deepest winter when… Full review

Eddie Bauer Men's MicroTherm StormDown Jacket

rated 2.5 of 5 stars A layering piece for anyone that wants to shave some weight by not carrying a fleece midweight. This could replace a fleece, but will not move moisture away from you like a fleece. I had this jacket twice. The first one I had to use the excellent EB warranty after two months because the very end of the zipper tab broke, rendering my zipper useless. It is lightweight plastic instead of metal. This shaves weight but sacrifices durability. The next one that I had I used for about a week. The reason… Full review

Eddie Bauer Men's First Ascent MicroTherm Down Hooded Jacket

rated 2.5 of 5 stars A layering piece for anyone that wants to shave some weight by not carrying a fleece midlayer.

Mountain Hardwear Men's Thermostatic Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very light mid-layer jacket for active outdoors use. Mountain Hardwear recommends it for climbing and hiking. Can also be used as a standalone jacket, provided the conditions permit and you have a good base layer. I bought it for snowshoeing and hiking. Fit & Comfort: The fit is standard. I'm 5'9" and about 190 pounds and a large allows me to wear a fleece underneath. I like the more ample fit. It's a very, very comfy jacket. If in doubt, I would err on getting a smaller size if sleeve size… Full review

Empire Wool and Canvas Company Boreal Shirt

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the most awesome piece of winter clothing I have ever had! Made from 100% wool blankets, it is seriously warm...even when wet. The hood is intelligently designed, gives full coverage with or without a hat, holds in the heat, and doesn't obstruct vision. The Boreal Shirt is made by Empire Wool and Canvas. It is sold exclusively through Lester River Bushcraft.   Like all products from Empire Wool and Canvas, the Boreal Shirt is built like a truck. It has been, by far, the most successful… Full review

Ibex Hunters Point Pullover

rated 5 of 5 stars Well made, warm, and durable sweater made of wool fleece. Good for casual and active wear. This sweater is billed as a men's but fits women too, although the arms will be a bit long for women. It is soft and comfortable, and much warmer than you would expect. It is also rather wind resistant. The fabric is really amazing. It dries faster than most wool, almost as fast as synthetics. All the cozy warmth and odor resistance of wool. If you are looking for the advantages of fleece, but in 100% natural… Full review

Injinji Performance Crew Sock

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Keeps them digits from co-mingling and forming blisters while looking ruggedly stylish on the trail. I started using these socks some four years ago doing seasonal Forest Service trail work. They hold up well if cared for. Used as an under sock to help separate your toes, prevent blistering, keep feet warmer and dryer. Keep toe nails trimmed or you will wear holes in the ends of the toes. Some synthetic outer sock may cause pilling of inner sock, so I found Merino wool outer sock a better choice. Wash… Full review
