Mountain Hardwear Men's Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars High warmth-to-weight, uber lightweight, packs small. This is a very nice, lightweight down jacket, perfect for throwing in a daypack or backpack for multi-day outings. It uses treated 800 down (Q.Shield), just under 3 oz of fill. The weight of my size Men's Large is 6.9 oz, not many down jackets approach that weight. It packs very small, taking very little space—a very big plus if using a small pack. I've had the jacket out in light rain and snow and the DWR is pretty decent, but I wouldn't… Full review

RailRiders WeatherPants

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Pockets are too deep. These are not cheap pants. I could easily get two pair for the price of one of these, but they were so highly regarded I thought I'd give them a try. I bought four items and three didn't fit right. Repeated phone calls and emails to the company went unanswered until we sent a register letter. We returned all three items and two weeks later they resent one item in a smaller size but were completely unresponsive about the status of the other three. The pants fit nicely and are… Full review

Uvex Downhill 2000 Variomatic Polavision Goggle

rated 3 of 5 stars Received a pair as a Christmas Gift and just tried them out on the bike as it has been too dam cold and raining too much in Maine to do any riding. Anyway. They work well with a shorty helmet or no helmet and stay on well enough on the highway at 75 mph. Do fog up a bit but all you need do is spit in them just like your Scuba mask and they are good to go for a few hours. I like them. Need to put a few years of use time on them to see how well they hold up. Store well hanging on the handlebars, but… Full review

Patagonia Nine Trails Skirt

rated 4 of 5 stars A quality garment suitable for multiple uses, particularly watersports. The undershorts have a permanent anti-microbial treatment that really does keep odors at bay. If already accustomed to wearing skimpy garments for workouts, the Nine Trails skirt will be a cute and welcome addition to your wardrobe. The short skirt does turn heads (since it's not always obvious that the black undershorts accompany it), so it's not for those lacking a healthy dose of self-confidence. On the other hand, it also… Full review

MontBell Men's UL Down Vest

rated 4 of 5 stars Great for layering! Montbell’s UL Down Vest is a great addition to a layering system that will help keep you warm while weighing about the same as your average t-shirt. It is not the top of the class, but for the price, weight savings, and effectiveness, I say it is a good choice. I have had my vest for over 2 years now. It went with me on the first 1,000 miles of the AT and on several overnight and weekend trips locally. If I am not wearing it I have it rolled up and in the stuff sack that was… Full review

Rab Flashpoint Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars In point, this jacket is all one needs for a fast and light, fully protected hardshell. See detailed review below. Testing: I tested the Flashpoint Jacket in the best backyard a guy can ask for: Glacier National Park. Scrambling peaks, backcountry ski missions where weight was to be kept at a minimum. It was my go-to shell and my only means of protection from wind/water/snow. Only other thing I'd bring was a good insulated piece. Sizing/Fit: I am a slightly 145 pounds and 5'10" guy, which seems… Full review
