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
Marmot Precip Shell Mitt
These thin, lightweight, waterproof mitts seem like a good catch, but the flaws get the better of them. I had an old pair of Marmot gloves that had a manufacturing malfunction so I sent them in. Instead of fixing them, they gave me $50 credit toward gear so I picked these up thinking, they'd be comparable. I was wrong. Fit and Comfort: Waterproof shells are usually designed with no insulation so they are intended to be a cover for lighter gloves. I bought the XL mitts and I can barely squeeze a… Full review
Marmot Men's Minimalist Pant
Great for all outdoor activity, very durable and comfortable. Best for hiking, trekking, rock climbing and ice climbing. Recommend it for all climbing activity. Fit & Comfort: Perfect fit for legs and very comfortable. Adjustability: Garment can be adjusted with cuffs and cords. Water Resistance: It's waterproof and can hold on whole day on rain. Breathability: Breathable, garment vents during activity. Moisture: The material wicks sweat away from skin. Warmth: At cold condition it keeps… Full review
Patagonia Men's R4 Jacket
Plush, good looking, comfortable, warm, and windproof. What more could you want in a fleece jacket? I've had my R4 for about 12 years. It has been put through the ringer. It is in every way still as plush, warm, and durable as the day I got it. It is inherently a good looking jacket. Perfect for wearing around town on cold days. I do not always take it on backpacking trips. It does not pack or compress well and it takes up considerable volume in a pack. But in the deepest winter when I know it's… Full review
