Red Ledge Gloves

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Bought several pairs of their gloves because they were reasonably priced, but turns out they are junk. Cheap material and the stitching comes apart on the fingers. Worthless. Save your money...cheap crap poorly made with cheap material and they won/t stand behind their product. Full review

Marmot Thunder Bay Parka

rated 5 of 5 stars Best Parka. Thank you, Marmot! Pros: WARMTH! Let me keep it simple, in -40 Celsius w/ wind-chill, you won't complain about the weather, as long as you put on the hoody and a good scarf, and good gloves of course. Sometime when it's super windy like 30KM/h wind, you do feel the wind around the elbow a little, but this will keep you warm for sure! QUALITY! Top new material, zippers are great, I love the velcros quality. The inside heat reflecting material is definitely my favorite! The outer membrane… Full review

Columbia Men's Pour Osity Stretch Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Very light and breathable jacket. A fantastic alternative to a Gore jacket. This is a fantastic lightweight jacket. Quite durable feeling and the fit is excellent (6'2", 185lbs, Medium does it). Didn't even notice it was raining out today. It layers perfectly with TurboDown 650, and I'm excited to wear the combo next winter! Full review

Patagonia Nano Puff Pants

rated 4 of 5 stars Warm and comfortable in action or at rest, these pants bring the insulation and packability expected from the Nano Puff line. A well-tailored fit and the ability to breathe well allows for active use in lower temps yet the puffy synthetic insulation protects against wind and cold even at rest. These pants would be a great addition for anyone looking for packable insulation for the lower half. Peakbaggers or thru hikers wanting easy to carry wind pants with insulation or fishermen wanting insulation… Full review

SafeRingz

rated 5 of 5 stars I wear mine everyday. Never take it off. It's so comfortable, I don't even know I'm wearing a ring! Love it! Full review

SafeRingz

rated 4.5 of 5 stars SafeRingz is a great, low-cost investment that can protect the hands of rock climbers, cavers, and anyone working/playing at height. In the months that I have been wearing it, it has already saved me from one close call. Additionally, it makes the use of trekking poles more comfortable. Some Background: I have worn my gold wedding band everyday for nearly 24 years. I feel naked without it, and I only take it off when...wait, I never take it off. A few months ago I was reading a blog by Dave Prowitz… Full review

ExOfficio Give-N-Go Boxer Brief

rated 5 of 5 stars Best underwear ever. Period. I kept reading reviews about these and finally pulled the trigger on a pair from REI. Great move on my part, now I have replaced ALL of my boxer briefs with these. I wear them every day, at work, on the trail, at the gym they are my all purpose go to "draws".  These wick like crazy and stay dry even during strenuous workouts or long hikes. My only gripe and its a relatively minor one, they could offer a little more support than what they do (mostly important for running… Full review
