Marmot Men's Minimalist Pant
Bought these to work in the woods hiking to and from work site. So far so good. Flexible enough to move thru the woods without being constricted. Overall fit and comfort is good. You may not want to buy this if you plan on doing a lot of physical work but works great for hiking and fishing. Very water proof. Full review
Marmot Precip Shell Mitt
These thin, lightweight, waterproof mitts seem like a good catch but the flaws get the better of them. I had an old pair of Marmot gloves that had a manufacturing malfunction so I sent them in. In stead of fixing them, they gave me $50 credit toward gear so I picked these up thinking, they'd be comparable. I was wrong. Fit and Comfort:Waterproof shells are usually designed with no insulation so they are intended to be a cover for lighter gloves. I bought the XL mitts and I can barely squeeze a thin… Full review

Patagonia Men's R4 Jacket
Plush, good looking, comfortable, warm, and windproof. What more could you want in a fleece jacket? I've had my R4 for about 12 years. It has been put through the ringer. It is in every way still as plush, warm, and durable as the day I got it. It is inherently a good looking jacket. Perfect for wearing around town on cold days. I do not always take it on backpacking trips. It does not pack or compress well and it takes up considerable volume in a pack. But in the deepest winter when… Full review
Eddie Bauer Men's MicroTherm StormDown Jacket
A layering piece for anyone that wants to shave some weight by not carrying a fleece midweight. This could replace a fleece, but will not move moisture away from you like a fleece. I had this jacket twice. The first one I had to use the excellent EB warranty after two months because the very end of the zipper tab broke, rendering my zipper useless. It is lightweight plastic instead of metal. This shaves weight but sacrifices durability. The next one that I had I used for about a week. The reason… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Men's Thermostatic Jacket
Very light mid-layer jacket for active outdoors use. Mountain Hardwear recommends it for climbing and hiking. Can also be used as a standalone jacket, provided the conditions permit and you have a good base layer. I bought it for snowshoeing and hiking. Fit & Comfort: The fit is standard. I'm 5'9" and about 190 pounds and a large allows me to wear a fleece underneath. I like the more ample fit. It's a very, very comfy jacket. If in doubt, I would err on getting a smaller size if sleeve size… Full review
