Asics FujiTrail Hoodie
Great mid layer for high aerobic activities. Great coverage and comfort, for the times that a fleece is too much, but a base layer only too little. The Asics Fuji Trail Hoodie, or Asics Fuji Hoody as they seem to call it in Europe, is a great mid layer. I often run hot and find no need for many of the otherwise very nice grid layers on the market, until it is around -10˚C. This hoody seems to fall between a thick base layer and a thin fleece. So perfect for running or otherwise high aerobic… Full review
Patagonia Men's Alpine Guide Pants
Super comfortable and pretty close to indestructible. Combine that with Patagonia's dedication to sustainability and these pants are almost perfect. Cost is the drawback. First, this pant is so durable that the belt, closure, zipper and elastic will all give out long before the material. I've pitted it against decomposed granite, sharp objects, and the teeth on snowshoes without a hole or a snag. Tough, tough, tough! This is a great softshell pant for alpine ventures and winter sports activities. Full review
Marmot Men's PreCip Jacket
Great rain jacket. I have used this jacket extensively and would definitely buy it again. Picked it up for $70 at the end of season sale at Gander Mountain. I tested immediately on a warm(er) January rainy day. Kept me dry and fit great. I used it for a 50 day thru hike. It worked well in the rain and as an alternate lightweight jacket for the cool mornings. Fit well, has not shown any wear through all of this. Only drawback I can tell is that it does need to be washed regularly. As you perspire,… Full review
Columbia Men's Silver Ridge Convertible Pant
These pants are are very lightweight and durable. They are also very comfortable. These pants are great. I bought them for camping and hiking, but find myself wearing them on the regular. They are very lightweight and great for mildly warm conditions, but the material is also somewhat wind resistant and so that makes them OK for cooler situations as well. They are also super durable. On a hike recently, I was getting caught in all kinds of thorns and I just plowed through and the pants don't… Full review
SmartWool Midweight Turtleneck
Luxurious warmth!!!! WOW! I could just leave it at that but I will elaborate. I first bought the SmartWool NTS 250 bottoms, which I love, so when I saw this shirt on sale I couldn't resist. Although both the top and bottoms are NTS 250 the top is much thicker and sooooo soft. I like staying warm outdoors and this shirt has kept me just that! I wear it all winter and bring it along for all my hiking and camping endeavours in the summer as well. I usually sleep in it when I'm at higher elevations… Full review
SmartWool Women's NTS Mid 250 Bottom
These are without a doubt the best long johns I have ever owned! I am 5'7", 125lbs and I bought the mediums. They fit like a glove (well literally as they are next to skin). So comfy and non restricting, you barely notice you have them on. I did a lot of research in my quest for super warm long johns and came to the conclusion that wool was going to be the warmest. I am not disappointed. The waistband is wider so they don't roll down as some other brands do. I love being outdoors but don't like… Full review
EMS Men's Thunderhead Jacket
The Thunderhead Jacket is a lightweight, waterproof, and windproof jacket suitable for use in all seasons. The rollaway hood is easily accessible and doesn't fill up with rain if you'd rather wear a rain hat. Exterior pockets are large and easy to access. Long pit zips help ventilate even in warmer weather. I bought my EMS Thunderhead Jacket about a year ago because I needed a lightweight, waterproof and windproof shell for 4-season use. It's completely waterproof, and the pit zips allow for excellent… Full review
