SmartWool Men's Hiking Ultra Light Mini
After dismissing this sock as sub-par, I have a new found appreciation of them. They are not a great hiking sock, but they are pretty decent for running and cycling. I have own this sock for more than a year. On my first backpacking trip with it, I wrote it off as a bad purchase. The reason for this was the low cut did not work well with a light hiker (like my Merrell Moab Ventilator pictured here). Shortly into a hike, especially in wet conditions, the top of the sock is below the back of the shoe,… Full review
Outdoor Research Men's Incandescent Hoody
Great for climbing/belaying. Warm. Light. Simply wow! Bought this jacket last year just in time for a whole week at -42 degrees Celsius in Banff, AB. This thing kept me warm the whole time! Great for rock and ice climbing because of it double zipper feature, which is awesome when belaying. It can also pack inside of its own pocket to about the size of a 2L Nalgene bottle and weighs virtually nothing at all. Bottom line.. warmest, most packable and efficient down jacket out there!

Mountain Hardwear Men's Hunker Down Jacket
This is an ideal for lightweight visits to the town. The lightness of it, you won't believe really, unless it comes in your hands. It packs down to a stuff sack, very handy and could be used as a pillow. I had a blue one, very great. Chest pocket is a nice feature. It acts as a great layer itself. Throw on a wool shirt underneath and this one and you are ready to go, when the temperature is freezing, like -10° and up, depending upon your own body circumstances. Abrasion protection is admirable. Full review

Salomon Men's Trail T
Very lightweight and well made shirt. I bought two of these in the medium size, which turned out to be a little too small in the chest and length. That would be my only critique. The shirts are very light, wick the sweat well, and are very comfortable. I highly recommend these shirts, just pick one size larger. Full review
Salomon Men's EXO Motion Short
Great pair of shorts for running or even swimming. These are the most comfortable pair of shorts that I've ever worn for running on the trails. So light it's incredible and well designed with the pockets for gels and keys. I highly recommend getting a pair of these. Full review
