Arc'teryx Men's Procline Comp Jacket
While marketed as an improvement on the Alpha Comp, this rip-off of Black Diamond's Dawn Patrol LT Hybrid takes inspiration from the original and perfects it. Conditions: Two full seasons in the Rockies, with occasional trips to the Coast Range. Experience 10° to -28° dry conditions as well as two days of very wet snow. Mostly ski touring, ski mountaineering, ice climbing, cycle commuting in the Pacific North West, and mountaineering. Personal: Fairly fit late 20-year-old male, I get really, really… Full review
The North Face Women's Sickline Jacket
The Sickline Jacket is not only a good looking jacket, but it keeps you protected from the elements, adjusts in all the right places, and can take a beating. I’ve had this jacket for a couple of years now and it’s survived a lot more epic wipes than my previous jackets. It’s kept the elements out, me warm and dry, and also looked good. It’s a winner of a jacket. Full review
Filson Down Cruiser Jacket
Tried to order online, got transferred to the Seattle store, and when I received the jacket discovered they charged me "sales tax" (which is not required in Oregon). Called to discuss with Seattle store salesman and was told there was nothing they could do so paid full retail plus $70.20. Will definitely not buy anything from the Seattle store again; word of warning to watch what they charge if you order online. Full review
Dragon Heatwear Wyvern 3 Zone Heated Jacket
Love the feel of the jacket. The battery lasts a good amount of time and definitely keeps me warm. I definitely recommend it. If you get cold, this heated jacket is a good one to get. Fit is good. Definitely check the sizing guide before buying. I got it right from their store. And they shipped pretty quickly. Got it in four days. It can be a bit tight around the waist at times. Has adjustable velcro cuffs which is nice. It is wind and water resistant. Holds up well in the rain. It definitely… Full review
Mountain Hardwear Monkey Man Jacket
Good one. Very warm for dynamic activities, still has its role in a winter layering system. The jacket is very stretchy, allowing full range of arm movement, and it has some strategic Polartec Powerstrech panels in key areas. Shines in chilling autumn temperatures when you can just pair it with a t-shirt. Has a little wind resistance. Very soft and pleasant. Full review
Lands' End 800 Down Packable Jacket
The Squall System Shell Jacket fits good and is light. This morning temp was 52 degrees outside for five minutes, and this Land's End Squall Component Jacket is a joke for keeping you warm. Don't buy it. I just wasted over $200 for the jacket with the 800 Down Packable Jacket insert. Full review
Beyond Clothing A9 Utility Pant
Quality materials with a lot of features, but the design is just OK. The pants are also expensive (~$200), so not recommended for most people. As a member of another website I get products to test from time to time in exchange for a review. This time I got to test the Beyond Clothing A9-U - Utility Mission Pant. I'm not a military person, so I don't maybe have the background many of their target market has, but I do love to be outdoors, go backpacking, and hiking. These pants are made of a tough,… Full review
