Sierra Designs Men's DriDown Rain Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars The Sierra Designs DriDown rain jacket is billed as "a single solution for wet, cold environments". It is a waterproof rain shell insulated with DriDown (proprietary treated down which according to Sierra Designs remains dry 10x longer than untreated). It is a very well constructed jacket which for the most part works as Sierra Designs advertises. As a hybrid garment it will have its detractors who prefer traditional layering, but there are enough positive features that most people would find this… Full review

Big Agnes Late Lunch Vest

rated 4 of 5 stars Big Agnes has applied their knowledge of down to their foray into apparel. The women’s Late Lunch Vest uses 700 fill power DownTek water repellent down, and they have applied their Insotect Flow vertical baffles which are designed to keep the wearer warm. While the down does shuck water, and the vest is warm, a major drawback is the vest’s fit. Warmth, durability, quality—fantastic! Fit…mmm – needs some tweaking. Company Specs Mid-weight down vests with contoured fit and drop tail 700… Full review

Icebreaker Flexi Chute Neckwarmer

rated 5 of 5 stars This neck gaiter is a winter companion that will keep you warm (and happy) for years! Made of soft/non-itch Merino wool, this accessory is an easy way to adjust your internal thermostat in moments. Combined with headwear, a neck gaiter is a great alternative to a balaclava. Now that I have had this neck gaiter for a second year, I found it time to write a review on this little goodie…  I typically wear the neck gaiter folded in half, lengthwise. Here is the neck warmer not folded.  I personally… Full review

Outdoor Research Lucent Heated Mitts

rated 5 of 5 stars The Outdoor Research Lucent is a battery powered heated mitten that boasts impressive dexterity, warmth and durability. There is extra attention to the small details — fit, universal chargers, carry bag, cinch straps and idiot leashes, but this mittens reputation starts, and ends, with the overwhelming success of the Altiheat. It boasts an even and powerful distribution of heat throughout the hand, and the battery life has exceeded my expectations. Limitations? Without a reliable way to power… Full review

Arc'teryx Men's Gamma MX Hoody

rated 3 of 5 stars Very lackluster performance for the price. It's a good light jacket that is being overhyped. Seriously the glowing reviews for this have to be confirmation bias due to spending so much. It's OK, but doesn't do what a jacket needs to do hardly any better than a decent fleece. Your shoulders will start to get wet after 20 minutes of light rain, the wind will be slowed but even a moderate breeze can be felt, and temperatures below 45 Fahrenheit will leave you shivering if you're not exerting… Full review

The North Face Men's Venture Jacket

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Great rain jacket if you are not moving. 400-foot mountain bike climb in 4.5 miles had me soaking wet under this jacket (outside temp 38 degrees F), with fleece under that and a base layer under that. Head soaked as well. Lousy. Keep seeing very pos review of this technology. Guess I am missing what others are raving about. Good fit. Holds up to rain on 50°F summer rain. Poor wicking performance on 38°F winter day, no rain but cycling hard up incline. Full review

Black Rock Gear Foldback Fingerless Mitt

rated 5 of 5 stars Soft, comfortable, warm mittens to layer over gloves or wear on their own. These fit on the large side in order to enable the easy layering over gloves. Gloves are just never warm enough, but then you slip these babies on and everything changes. Soft material, they fold down to nothing and they are light as a feather, but they do deliver in the warmth department. You can easily fold down the top half with the same hand that is wearing the mitten for ease in converting the mitten. Roomy fit mittens… Full review
