Zamberlan Trekking Medium Weight Socks
Excellent pair of technical socks that keeps feet (mostly) dry! Having a good outdoors experience greatly depends on the boots you're wearing. I believe that boots comprise 80% and socks the rest 20% of this experience. And 20% is a lot... No matter how breathable your boot/shoe may be your comfort still relies on the direct-to-skin component: your sock. Your skin breathes, even when you're standing still, let alone hiking. Your feet sweat, the sock soaks, and the skin starts to get wrinkly and… Full review
Salomon Cruise Gloves
Basic winter gloves that do the job at a good price. I'm more on the hot and sweaty side because I get warm very easily so as long as the clothes I'm wearing have good breathability and are durable for the mountaineering hardship I'm good to go. I wore these gloves 3 maybe 4 times in my hiking trips and in temperatures ranging from 7 to 2 Celsius. My hands got sweaty fast...so I take it that their insulation is pretty good. In one trip I encountered some very light rain showers but nothing got through?! Full review
Patagonia Men's Houdini Jacket
Well constructed, lightweight and does keep the wind out. Not so good if it gets very wet but light mist or rain it works fine. Well constructed, very light and easily packable. Runs true to size. I'm about 5'11" 190lbs and the large is just right. Seems very reistant for overall wear. All in all a good light jacket Full review
Pearl Izumi Men's P.R.O Fly Evo Pullover
It stops ALL wind, all snow, keeps out a surprising amount of the cold, breathes exceedingly well, sheds light rain, and, if it gets wetted out in a heavier rain, it drys quickly. It has more reflective trim than anything I have ever seen. It is durable. Great for biking or running in cool to cold weather, especially in cities where lighting is not good at night. Highly recommended. This really is almost the miracle outer layer for bikers (and I hear that runners like it too). It is so thin, it… Full review
Swanndri Original Wool Bushshirt
The Swanndri Bush shirt in New Zealand has been around for nearly 100 years (just the same as the Empire Wool and Canvas Company Boreal Shirt), pure wool, water and wind proof and almost the uniform for serious outdoor types. A true life saver. So glad that it has been copied in the U.S., that's a real compliment. Full review
The North Face Women's Denali Thermal Mitt
These mitts make a nice liner to a waterproof shell. They're also quick, and easy for an all-purpose "on the go" hand cover. I've used the North Face Denali gloves as liners for a few years inside of a Gore-tex shell. They've always performed fairly well. For the price point they are good. I thought I'd try using the mitt instead of the glove to see if it increased warmth. It does. Fit and comfort: These mitts are a very comfortable faux type fur fleece. It's very comfortable. It tends to mat… Full review
Marmot Men's Minimalist Pant
Bought these to work in the woods hiking to and from work site. So far so good. Flexible enough to move thru the woods without being constricted. Overall fit and comfort is good. You may not want to buy this if you plan on doing a lot of physical work but works great for hiking and fishing. Very water proof. Full review
