Stoic Vaporshell 3L Anorak

rated 4 of 5 stars Great wp/b shell usually at an affordable price Fit & Comfort: I purchased a medium, my typical size, which I found to be a bit on the slim side and a little shorter than I would have expected, the sleeves are more than adequate length for me. I've worn it comfortably in the rain and in windy weather. It is an effort to slip on due to the slim fit and half zipper. Unzipping the side zipper makes getting it on and off easier, though. Adjustability: There is a draw cord around the waist and in… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Men's Ghost Whisperer Down Vest

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Sure, this vest only weighs 5 oz, but what are you really getting? I only paid 1/5 the price at a closeout sale, but it only weighs 4oz less than the down jacket I picked up at walmart for 19.98 (1/12th the price)! Cut the sleeves out and there you are. The quality of this vest isn't THAT much better than the cheap walmart jacket either. And they are both made in China. Though the retail price on this vest is $245.00!! Ridiculous in my opinion. I'm not very impressed with this vest at all. The… Full review

SmartWool Unisex Neck Gaiter

rated 5 of 5 stars Nice merino neck gaiter. Keeps my neck warm with the comfort of merino wool. Fit and comfort:  Pulls on easily over my head, stretchy enough to stay on over my nose and ears and comfortable enough to sleep in. The seams are internal and do not get in the way. Adjustability: It has the elasticity of merino wool, but no additional adjustment devices. It's two layers of knit merino wool sewn together. Water resistance: None, just a knit merino neck gaiter. Breathability and Moisture management: Great! Full review

Smith Parallel

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Lightweight, interchangeable lenses. I had to replace my Smith Escapades (Lifestyle) because the cold weather snapped them, so I bought the Parallels with ignitor lenses. Just as the other reviewer mentioned, this color lense is great for varying light levels. I am going to try brown, next. I've had these glasses for 4 years and they have been perfect for cycling and running. The looks is a great mid-way between extreme racing and conventional leisure. They come with an optical-quality bag (you… Full review

Arc'teryx Sabre Pant

rated 5 of 5 stars The best ski and snowboard pants I have ever had. These are the best ski and snowboard pants I have ever had. The fabric has been really durable. There is just the right amount of insulation. I really like the huge pockets. The only issue I have with the pants is that they are a baggier cut. Some people would find them a little too large. I am 5'11", 180 lbs, with a 34" waist and a large fits good. As a disclaimer, I am affiliated with Gore for product testing of Gore-tex products for the purpose… Full review

Sherpa Adventure Gear Shankar Belay Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Super light, super warm, super awesome. I'm 5'7" 140 lbs. Small is a snug fit, medium leaves me room to layer in super cold weather. I've had this for two winters now. I wear this jacket every day in the bitter Canadian cold. Man, I'm laughing at everybody else in those bulky/expensive Canada Goose jackets. I'm thoroughly impressed with the Primaloft insulation, pound/pound it is the warmest jacket I own.  Thunder Bay, Ontario, is really cold in the winter, with my Patagonia R3 sweater (300wt fleece)… Full review

Sport Kilt Men's Hiking Kilt

rated 5 of 5 stars Traditional Scottish kilt styling in material suited for trekking, hiking, and walking. Material dries quickly. Cooler and reduces chaffing. Wear at home or on the trail. Great for men and women. Enjoy wearing my Sport Kilt Hiking Kilt. It is a neat design with a wrap with velcro waist, traditional pleated kilt. Size XL with 18" hem weighs 320 g (11.3 oz). Customized mine with pockets, belt loops, and sown in pleats. The pockets easily hold an iPhone 6. Glad it is a skirt design, where I get to… Full review
