Ibex Hunter's Point pullover
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
Keeps them digits from co-mingling and forming blisters while looking ruggedly stylish on the trail. I started using these socks some 4 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 case pilling of inner sock so I found Merino wool outer sock a better choice. Wash… Full review
Therm-a-Rest Honcho Poncho
The Therm-a-rest Honcho Poncho is an indulgent piece of gear that can shed rain and help keep you warm as a garment or convert into a blanket for more supine endeavors. It is ideal as a wrap for car camping and sporting events or as a throw while lounging at home, but definitely a questionable choice of luxury for backpackers owing to its bulk (16 x 12 x 5 in./ 40.6 x 30.5 x 12.7 cm ) and weight (28 oz/ 794g). Design and Materials: The Poncho Goes Technical The Honcho poncho is essentially a light,… Full review
Eddie Bauer Men's Superior Down Parka
Extremely warm, high quality, luxurious parka, at an amazing price. This is the best parka I have ever owned. I was looking for an Air Force Parka, and it was hard to find an actual jacket rather than a copy - So I started looking for alternatives, as I did not wish to spend $1000 for a Canada Goose Parka. I have had it for a few weeks, and it is windproof, water beads on the surface like a freshly waxed car, and it is comfortable in below zero windchills. I'm still discovering many of the features… Full review
Marmot Men's PreCip Jacket
Lightweight, cost effective rain shell. I picked up the Marmot Precip because I needed a lightweight and packable waterproof shell that wouldn't break the bank. I use it for everything from around town when it's raining, summer backpack trips in the High Sierra and Cascades, AND climbing trips. I knew from previous reviews that the jacket was not the most breathable, however the pit zips allow me to regulate my temperature during exertion. If I pay attention to my level of exertion and open the… Full review
Montane Hi-Q Luxe Jacket
This jacket screams PERFORMANCE!!! A highly water resistant/windproof mid-weight synthetic jacket that continues to perform when wet, yet still has the positive attributes in a goose down jacket. PRIMALOFT GOLD Luxe synthetic fill is much lighter and more compressible than previously available synthetic fills. Along with a redesigned cuff/sleeve configuration, this jacket excels with temperature regulation, making it an ideal three-season piece of gear for hikers, backpackers, and anyone that loves… Full review
Fjallraven Yupik Parka
This jacket lasted two months. This jacket lasted two months. I used it nearly every day for things ranging from ski practice to walking to class. I bought it specifically for the wind and cold that I experience nearly daily during the winter. It was great. Unfortunately after a very wet race weekend it needed a wash and dry. After going through the drier (tumble dry low) the hood came out melted. This is strange considering my speed suit was also in there with it, that being a much more heat sensitive… Full review
