Montane Super Terra Pants

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These are rugged outdoor pants which can be used for many different activities. Durable, yet stretchy, Montane’s Super Terra Pants are comfortable in fit and feel. With plenty of deep pockets located nearly everywhere, having access to any gear or food on the trail isn’t an issue. Even with leg vents, I’d still recommend wearing these for cool/cold weather use as the material itself isn’t very breathable. Testing Process Montane claims that the Super Terra Pants can be used for several uses… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Minalist Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Minalist Jacket incorporates the latest Dry Q Elite fabric ,which keeps you dry inside. Asymmetric full length zipper and short expansion zipper keeps the chin protected from abrasion with enough room for a baklava. Best use for resort or back country skiing. Highly recommended. Overall fit is slightly snug in the shoulder and sleeve area. There is room, but if you need to add more than normal layering you should consider the next larger size. Pit zippers make the armpits a little tight if wearing… Full review

The North Face Fuse Uno Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars The North Face Fuseform Uno is a lightweight (12oz), 3-layer HyVent Alpha, alpine designed shell which boasts an industry changing innovation dubbed FuseForm. In brief, it allows for different weights of a material to be woven into a single fabric without the use of seams or stitching. This single piece is then folded, paper airplane style, into a jacket. The fit, and strategic added durability, in the upper torso, hood and shoulders are all major pros, while there are some omissions such as pit… Full review

TAD Praetorian Hoodie

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This hoodie is incredibly warm and well built. It comes at a hefty price tag, but I feel it is well worth the price. This is a really great piece of clothing. 100% merino wool is extremely warm. I received it for Xmas, and have worn it as much as I can without looking like I never change my clothes, although even after five days of wearing, I don't notice any stink, I just feel like I need to wash it.  I find that even during a high wind, it blocks it out. When you start moving and generating some… Full review

Bergans Men's Tufto Pants

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Except in the case of extreme cold or heat the Tufto Pants do everything I need pants to — from hiking and climbing to skiing and biking. Over the years I have gone from very low expectations for pants (wearing blue jeans in the mountains) to very high. I have gone from backpacker only to climber and minor mountaineer.  Disambiguation: The term “Bergen” is a generic term for any military backpack in the U.K. The term was used to describe the backpack style favored by skiers in Bergen, Norway. … Full review

SealSkinz Windproof Gloves

rated 4 of 5 stars These are great gloves that really are windproof. I wore them on a 26-mile hike in all weather conditions and my hands stayed warm. These gloves are great! Just like it says, windproof. Kept my hands warm on an all weather trek with high winds and rain and my hands stayed warm. I have Raynauds so it is really important to protect my hands from wind and cold. These gloves did the job. I used the sizing chart provided and ordered a medium. I should be gotten a large. Even though these fit, going up… Full review

The North Face Women's Apex Bionic Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I couldn't decide between TNF Apex Bionic Jacket and TNF Denali. I purchased both and the Apex won out hands down. I just bought this jacket at the same time as I purchased the Denali and wore them both intermittently trying to decide which to keep. The Apex won out. The Denali, although quite warm and functional, was bulky in comparison to the mid-layer Apex. I was able to wear both a lightweight Columbia fleece jacket and a base TNF shell underneath to keep me extremely warm. The difference in… Full review
