Outdoor Research Sparkplug Gaiters
Lightweight, super breathable, minimalist gaiters that keep your feet and socks in good condition. Function: The Outdoor Research Spark Plug Gaiters are minimalist gaiters that prevent debris from entering your shoe. This means less emptying out of shoes, longer usage out of your socks, and happy hiking or running. Sizing: I have a size L/XL gaiter, over my EU46, JP29.5, US11.5 sized Salomon X Ultra Mids. I think the fit is perfect. I can reach all the way to the front most lace with the… 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
Rockwater Designs Roanoke Shorts
The shorts are quick drying. I like the top of the knee length. Great for hiking. These shorts are serving me well as I hike for 2 to 8 hours each time I go hiking. I have recommended them to my fellow hikers who belong to Chebucto Hiking Club. Full review
ExOfficio Men's Sol Cool Crew Long Sleeve Shirt
I'm generally a huge fan of ExOfficio clothing, but maybe not this time. Perhaps I'm expecting too much, a shirt that can actually keep me cooler in East Texas summer heat, but that is what the mfg description claims. But under most summer conditions here, it ain't happenin'. Imagine my excitement when I read about this magic shirt that claims to not only protect the wearer from the sun's rays, but can actually keep you cooler in summer heat than std summer wear. I spend a fair amount of time… Full review
Arc'teryx Rampart Short
These shorts are awesome! I own two pairs, but am seriously considering ordering other colors and getting rid of my other shorts. They're very lightweight, dry quickly, and fit my athletic build. I've never owned another pair of shorts that I love on a mountain or beach and look great out at dinner. 'nuff said. Full review
Black Diamond Soloist Lobster Glove
Good glove/mitt hybrid that is a great base for a waterproof winter glove layering system. Use: The Black Diamond Lobster is a cross between a glove and a mitt, and is a great base for a waterproof winter glove layering system. The lobster design is warmer than a glove, but gives you more dexterity than a mitt. It has a thumb and index finger, and a separate section for the rest of the fingers. When it is cold, I can fit my index finger into the mitt section for possible extra warmth. When… Full review
