L.L.Bean Men's Carrabassett Ski Pants
Loaded with features, these ski pants double as my snowshoeing and ascent pants. They are warm enough for skiing by themselves and with a mid-weight insulating layer, they are great for alpine expedition trips. Love these pants for multi-purpose winter sports. With a good mid-weight insulating layer, they are quite food for multi-day hiking and camping, and reasonable for summitting snow alpine peaks in the Adirondacks. The price is right for these feature packed snowpants! Only thing I would like,… Full review
Loki Men's Mountain Hoodie
I really, really, like this jacket!!! So, does my youngest son! Great product!!! I've had mine for 7 years now and the blue outer is just now starting to show signs of wear near the cuff. I've used the jacket from fall to spring for the last 7 years and the only jacket I own for protection. Great with t-shirt, long sleeve tee, or heavier pullover used as first layer under the Loki Jacket. I used it at work when working outdoors (Craig, Co and it gets cold there) for several hours with no break to… Full review
Outdoor Research Ghost Rain Hat
Best all around outdoor hat that I've found yet for our moist, often unpredictable, Pacific Northwest USA weather! Three-season especially rain (but not summer) use, with adjustment options, giving unparalleled flexibility. Classic outback form styling. Had Indiana Jones lived out here, the Ghost might well have been his hat! Almost perfect already and my guess is that later generations may soon be. It was talk my wife into me getting this or wear her purple n' black Seattle Sombrero. Her S'brero… Full review
Oakley Heritage Pipe Glove
A good balance of fit, dexterity and warmth in the Shoulder Seasons. I have several pairs of gloves from thin liners to gore-type super mittens. In between those extremes, I use the Oakley Heritage Pipe Gloves. Most of the time I don't need my mittens and liners are too thin, so I like having gloves I can be active in and still use my hands for tying knots and reaching into my pockets. I absolutely despise taking my gloves off for every little thing, so the Pipe Gloves fit a rather large niche with… Full review
Berghaus VapourLight Hyper Smock
Kept me completely dry on my through hike, ultra lightweight. Packs down into my palm. Full review
Icebreaker Men's Sphere Short Sleeve Crewe
Super comfortable across a variety of conditions. I have several merino hiking shirts which are now pushing ten years old, and looking a bit ragged, so I decided it was time to update my wardrobe. Though my usual shirt size is XL, I found that the XXL was a more comfortable fit for me. It is cut reasonably long for my longish torso, so my gut isn't hanging out when reaching high. This shirt is made of Icebreaker's new "Cool-Lite" Merino blend, which includes 20% plant-based Tencel threads, plus… Full review
Black Diamond Men's Deployment Hoody
The mid-weight Deployment Hoody is not a layer that I would wear while I trail run, but I love to hike and bike in it during cooler temps. Made from merino wool and nylon, it’s well made and is pretty rugged. While on the more expensive side for such an item, if you can grab it on sale, then the durability, versatility, and comfort will make it worth the cost. Background & Expectations My wife gave me this last year when I was looking for a zippered hoody/jacket to replace an Arc'teryx cardigan… Full review
