MontBell Men's U.L. TEC Down Jacket
This is an older jacket I just picked up very lightly used from the original owner. I will update this review once I can get a honest cold weather review. This is an older jacket I just picked up very lightly used from the original owner. I will update this review once I can get a honest cold weather review. This is my first high quality down jacket as the lightweight / ultralight bug has bitten me though as the original owner informed me that this no longer qualifies as ultralight as age plays… Full review
prAna Stretch Zion Short
Nice material, good length, lots of pockets, definitely has the stretching feature, which is the main selling point. Prana has a good name, and they somewhat live up to it with these. Construction is good, but they do have a lot of stitching. The stretch fabric seems good quality. They have 6 pockets, including 2 zippered side pickets on the same side which I find uncomfortable due to the rigid zippers which cannot be unzipped with one hand. In addition they run large, so 28 means 30 waist,… Full review

Patagonia Men's R1 Hoody
The most versatile mid-layer I own. I wear this as one of my layers in the coldest temperatures all the way through stuffing in my day pack and putting it on for stops on cool spring or fall hikes. Patagonia thought hard about what hikers and climbers need when they designed this mid-layer. Only downside is that the technical nature of it makes it less appealing for wearing it in town. THE BASICS The Patagonia R1 Hoody might be my favorite piece of trail clothing. It's a mid-layer in the winter,… Full review
Anon M3 Goggle
The Anon M3 goggle is extremely versatile. With the Magna Tech Quick Lens system you can change lenses in less than ten seconds and a spare lens is included. The anti-fog system is second to none and they are Over the Glasses compatible. Testing: I purchased the Anon Optics M3/MFI goggles at the beginning of the 2016-17 ski season and have now used them for 45+ days in all conditions to include lift served skiing, back country skiing, and cat skiing. These are now my go-to goggles. Product… Full review
Patagonia Men's Houdini Pullover
A very light, yet effective wind shirt for many uses. It is durable and comfortable to wear, and it packs down to the size of a stick of deodorant. The Patagonia Houdini Pullover is a simple, yet effective wind shirt that is very useful in many situations. It fits true to size, and I love wearing it with a Patagonia Snap-T fleece underneath, because the two garments have very similar styles and sizes that feel as though they were made to go together. The shirt does not have many ways to adjust it,… Full review
Marmot Men's Ether DriClime Jacket
The Marmot Ether Driclime Wind Jacket is just about the only piece of my outdoor clothes closet that always gets packed—year round. It’s a great wind jacket that keeps the chill off in a solid breeze through major wind gusts, is water repellent, and breathes well while providing some insulation. The perfect “not too hot – not too cold” shell for my metabolism on most trips throughout the year. Light and quick-drying, it’s difficult to find a reason to leave it behind. When Trailspace… Full review
