Eddie Bauer Men's Superior Down Parka

rated 5 of 5 stars Extremely warm, high quality, luxurious parka, at an amazing price. This is the best parka I have ever owned. I was looking for an Air Force Parka, and it was hard to find an actual jacket rather than a copy - So I started looking for alternatives, as I did not wish to spend $1000 for a Canada Goose Parka. I have had it for a few weeks, and it is windproof, water beads on the surface like a freshly waxed car, and it is comfortable in below zero windchills. I'm still discovering many of the features… Full review

Marmot Men's PreCip Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars Lightweight, cost effective rain shell. I picked up the Marmot Precip because I needed a lightweight and packable waterproof shell that wouldn't break the bank. I use it for everything from around town when it's raining, summer backpack trips in the High Sierra and Cascades, AND climbing trips. I knew from previous reviews that the jacket was not the most breathable, however the pit zips allow me to regulate my temperature during exertion. If I pay attention to my level of exertion and open the… Full review

Montane Hi-Q Luxe Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This jacket screams PERFORMANCE!!! A highly water resistant/windproof mid-weight synthetic jacket that continues to perform when wet, yet still has the positive attributes in a goose down jacket. PRIMALOFT GOLD Luxe synthetic fill is much lighter and more compressible than previously available synthetic fills. Along with a redesigned cuff/sleeve configuration, this jacket excels with temperature regulation, making it an ideal three-season piece of gear for hikers, backpackers, and anyone that loves… Full review

Fjallraven Yupik Parka

rated 2 of 5 stars This jacket lasted two months. This jacket lasted two months. I used it nearly every day for things ranging from ski practice to walking to class. I bought it specifically for the wind and cold that I experience nearly daily during the winter. It was great. Unfortunately after a very wet race weekend it needed a wash and dry. After going through the drier (tumble dry low) the hood came out melted. This is strange considering my speed suit was also in there with it, that being a much more heat sensitive… Full review

Point6 Hiking Tech Medium Mini Crew

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A four-season, merino wool hiking sock that is just as comfortable as it is durable. I came across Point6 socks after my wife received a free pair from an Eddie Bauer store. After a couple months of use, she told me how impressed she was with the comfort and durability and that I should buy myself a pair. Not one to ignore my wife, I bought a couple pairs and have enjoyed them ever since. Conditions: I’ve owned these socks for a little more than one year now and wear them on any occasion possible—hiking,… Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Ferrosi Pants

rated 5 of 5 stars The Outdoor Research Ferrosi Pants are extremely comfortable. They are breathable, water-resistant, wind-resistant, and move with you during activity. I bought these pants (that are technically rock-climbing pants) in an attempt to get some super comfortable hiking pants that move with me and that were not baggy on my legs. These are not Outdoor Research (OR)'s most slim fitting pants but they are not "relaxed." I bought these at Rock Creek in Chattanooga, Tenn., by recommendation of one of their… Full review

Xersion Packable Down Midweight Jacket

rated 3 of 5 stars Inexpensive down clothing for trail or town. These products come from JC Penny. I do not know if they are sold elsewhere. They list from $75 to $100 each, sell normally for about $60 and can be found on sale for about $30. I bought the orange one for $20. These jackets and vest are filled with 90% down and 10% feathers. The vest is a lady's with stretch elastic nylon sides for a tighter fit. They are light and warm. We own one vest and three jackets... all are zippered. The wife wears her jacket… Full review
