Marmot Alpinist Half Zip
Good fit, small pocket. I just received my Alpinist Half Zip so this will be on fit. I'm 5'10" 160lbs. 15 1/2" neck. First, like another reviewer stated, the pocket is small. I can barely fit my Kyocera Brigadier phone, so I will be using it for snacks and power gels for hiking. The arm length, covers my knuckles perfectly when using the thumb holes. Good fit around neck. Took my dog for a 10 minute walk with a T-shirt underneath. It is 38 degrees with 7-10 mph wind. I felt the cold on my arms after… Full review
The North Face Men's Burst Rock Jacket
Like another review, my jacket's lining broke down and is no longer waterproof at all. I have had several NF jackets in my time, but the technical quality of this jacket is horrible. I am now moving on from North Face to find better value for my money. Full review
NEOS Navigator 5 STABILicers
The Navigator 5 with Stabilicers are overboots with studs from NEOS. The Navigator Stabilicer has become the footgear of choice for those who work under the most demanding weather conditions. Just like studded snow tires on your car, Stabilicers are the best way to maneuver in treacherous terrains whether on ice and snow, trails, slopes or even your driveway. The Navigator provides a gaiter extension for high snow levels. Studs work with snowshoes. Don't wear these in the house. NEOS make all kinds… Full review
Marmot Men's PreCip Jacket
Lightweight compressible, affordable, breathable rain jacket that kept me dry inside and out. I read a lot of reviews for and against this jacket's rainproof ability and breathability. I have to say I didn't need it too many times, but the few times I've used it, it did kept me dry. First of all the fit is about good. I got the S size and it fits me well, enough room for layering. The hood is great and easy to adjust. I just wish it could be longer on the torso and sleeves so it will better cover… Full review
Mountain Hardwear Men's Dual Fleece Jacket
Tailor fit, very warm with mind blowing softness. I bought this fleece jacket in size S and it fits perfectly! It is a tight fit, but not restricting, and there is still enough room for layering. The stretchy side panels really give you freedom of movement. The warmth of this jacket is superb. It has "monkey fur" fleece over the torso, sleeves, and pockets. The outer fleece is dense and relatively efficient against wind and light rain. The monkey fur is the softest thing I have ever touched. I just… Full review
Columbia Trail Summit Running Glove
Great running gloves. Or really good liner gloves, your call. Caveat: I am a member of the Columbia Sportswear Testing Program, however I have yet to test anything for them and I bought these long before I had this affiliation. This is one of those odd situations where a niche product is exactly what I was looking for. Last spring I started running outside again and needed some super light, breathable gloves to wear as I run because my body heats up everywhere when I run except my hands. Weird… Full review
Patagonia Men's R1 Hoody
The R1 Hoody works better as a base-layer than a mid-layer. It has a good combination of warmth and ventilation. Polygiene odor control really works. Touted as a mid-layer, I found the Patagonia R1 Hoody to work much better for me as a first layer or strictly worn by itself. The Polartec Power grid fabric that provides both the hoody's warmth and ventilation also makes it difficult to put on over a first layer. The waffle patterned fabric would get hung up on my t-shirt regardless of the t-shirts… Full review
