Rab Men's Vapour-Rise Guide Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars If you need a winter soft-shell and weight isn't an issue, this is the one. Purchased my first one last autumn/winter(2016) in size XL and in the striking Red colour. Rab states this jacket is a "Regular fit." I ordered my usual XL size, which for me (who's of rugby player build) is a tad long over my arms and a bit snug around my bulky torso. However, the jacket's length does give some additional protection below the waist and means that it won't ride up as easily when i'm reaching up or stretching. Full review

Jöttnar Fjörm

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great mid-weight, water & wind resistant Down Winter jacket. Even as a Winter mid-layer. Had been searching for a mid-weight compressible Down insulated jacket flexible enough to use as a mid-layer for cold, wet & windy weather, or as an outer-layer in ice-cold but fairly dry conditions. Fortunately stumbled on this one. Packs small in it's own supplied stuff sack. Surprisingly water & wind resistant 30D DWR treated micro rip-stop shell. Over 235g fill-weight(Men's Medium size) of premium… Full review

Lily Trotter Socks

rated 5 of 5 stars Great socks for smaller feet that don't fall down or shift in your shoes Note: Occasionally, I get to test products for companies. I received these socks for free in exchange for a fair and honest review. I tested a pair of awesome compression socks from Lily Trotters. I received two pairs in size S/M, but only tested one at this campground. To be honest, they are so awesome, I didn't want to get the second pair dirty quite yet :) The Totally Solid Black were just that...absolutely, totally solid,… Full review

Swiss Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

rated 1 of 5 stars Poorly made. Not as advertised Pure garbage. Wore them for two bouldering sessions. The rubber nibs wore off quickly and I wore a hole in the fabric. So much for being durable and made of the strongest fiber. The company said they would be happy to exchange them, but first asked me to check the fit. What's the point if it already has a hole worn into it? Interesting idea but poorly executed. SAVE YOUR MONEY. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.  Full review

Frogg Toggs Ultra-Lite2 Rain Suit

rated 2 of 5 stars They work, but are often ill fitting with seams that leak ad are VERY easily torn. The pants are almost always too long and will need hemmed... which voids the "warranty" Tried these on an 11 day/10 night rugged trek in the Rockies.  If you are careful, these will work, but expect use of duct tape for repair.  We had rain for 9 of the 11 days.  These kept me dry in the first half of the trek, but had sprung seam leaks by the second from pulling on the fragile seams and material.  Duct tape fixed… Full review

Minus33 Acadian Lightweight Boxer Brief

rated 5 of 5 stars Worn for 7 days straight on a canoe trip in Northern Maine during variable weather in august!!! Amazing!!! We outdoor industry dedicatees remember the Ex Officio campaign claiming that their underwear could take you around the world and beyond.  -That their undies are so great that with a simple weekly sink washing whenever you happen into a hostel your drawers will smell of roses and no crotch rot will ever inhibit your adventuring.  As is my way, I put them to the test.  They were good, I’ll… Full review

Beyond Clothing Brokk Capri

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These pants are really great for hot weather hiking and camping where you want good coverage of your legs but still need breathability and airflow. The pants come to a couple inches below your knees and are made of a stretchy material that gives nice mobility when performing tasks around a campfire or climbing over some rocks. I would highly recommend checking out these pants for anyone who spends a significant amount of time outdoors in hot weather. Overall these pants are super comfortable and… Full review
