Point6 Hiking Tech Medium Crew

rated 5 of 5 stars I find these socks more durable than Smartwools, which I have stopped purchasing because I punch/wear through the toe area in a short period of time. Although I like the similar socks from Darn-Tough, I find the Point6 to be more comfortable. I find these socks comfortable, durable and easy to wash.  I also find the padding to be more that adequate for a Medium weight.  Fwiw, I never place my tech clothing, including socks in the dryer Full review

Mountain Hardwear Men's Canyon Shirt Long Sleeve

rated 5 of 5 stars Tough, durable, cool shade. The best summer hiking and work wear I have found. I'm a landscaper in hot Tucson where 1/4 second of shade from a flying by airplane is helpful. Dealing with desert heat and plants takes toughness as so many plants have thorns and needles. Yet this is the coolest wearing shady shirt I've ever found. Had these over 10 years, yet they do not show any wear and I wear them often. Still don't have a tear in either, an amazing feat in the desert. Full review

Outdoor Research Women's Skyward Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars The Skyward Jacket by Outdoor Research is a hardshell jacket that is as flexible and comfortable as a softshell layer and is also waterproof!

However, these features may not be ideal for ultralighters or those who live in mild winter climates. Conditions: I tested the women’s Skyward… Full review

Montane Spine Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Montane's Spine jacket is a Goretex shell that appears to be very well put together. It combines very light weight with essential functions—windproof, waterproof, cuff and hem adjustments, a good hood, and pit zips. The jacket has an athletic cut that limits weight and allows for limited layering underneath and only one small chest pocket. If you truly want fast and light, it's a great jacket. BASIC INFORMATION AND HISTORY A bit of history that may be of interest: this jacket is named after the… Full review

Custom Woolen Mills Extra Thick 100% Wool Ankle Socks

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These wool socks are terrifically warm and cushion-y inside rubber boots or winter boots. They're like a favourite sweater made for your feet! Highly recommended for camping or snow sports of any kind. Farmers and construction workers love these socks. These are the best warm winter socks I have found. I give them as gifts and they are welcomed by my spouse, son, and construction workers and farmers living on the Canadian prairies, where winters routinely reach -30° and -40° (same in Celsius and… Full review

Patagonia Men's Lightweight Synchilla Snap-T Pullover
