Sierra Designs Elite Rain Chaps

rated 4 of 5 stars These chaps are a lightweight alternative to regular rain pants. They shed water and have much more ventilation than rain pants. I had the opportunity to test the Sierra Designs Elite Rain Chaps this summer, first on a drizzly day hike in California and then for four solid days of rain on the Tour of Mont Blanc. The chaps are an interesting alternative to rain pants in that they are two separate legs that attach to pants or shorts using a plastic hook on a single side strap (one strap per leg). Full review

Kora Shola 230 Crew

rated 5 of 5 stars Warm, soft, well-fitting, comfortable even in warmer temperatures. It's been years since I've lived in a climate cold enough for a base layer. Actually it's been 13 years... I remember them as itchy, uncomfortable, and most of the time I would rather freeze than wear them. I definitely have needed them since returning, and I decided to bite the bullet and pick up a set for the upcoming winter, which the Farmer's Almanac says will be one of the coldest winters in some time. I typically would not… Full review

Swiss Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

rated 3 of 5 stars Dyneema material rubberised socks that allow you to really feel the terrain under your feet. Minimises risk of cuts when wanting to go barefoot. The FYF (Free Your Feet) is a great pair of socks for those into water sports or those that want to go barefoot. Made out of Dyneema fibre that has tensile strength 15 times greater than steel it protects your feet from any type of cut (e.g. selfish, glass), friction injury (blisters from rough terrain) or scratches (from twigs and stones). However, it… Full review

POC Lobes

rated 4 of 5 stars The Poc Lobes are excellent goggles. They fit very well to the face. They don't squeeze on the nose. They don't fog up. The Poc Lobes is an excellent goggle. The spherically shaped large lens ensures an incredible good and wide view. The goggle is well ventilated, so you don't have to worry about fog and loss of view. It fits well on most faces and doesn't squeeze on the nose, so breathing won't be interfered with by the goggle. All in all, Poc Lobes is a beautiful modern goggle. Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Crocodiles

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Bombproof. These gaiters are one of my favorite pieces of gear. They are not always needed, but whenever I do need them, they do the job impeccably. Fit: The size large fits well over my La Sportiva Trango GTX boots but does not fit over my plastic ski boots. It's a bit of a bummer they don't fit over my ski boots because it would have been nice when out on the glacier in the summer to keep snow out of my boots when it is too hot out to wear pants. However, having them fit over my ski boots means… Full review

Julbo Colorado

rated 4 of 5 stars Great bang-for-your-buck glacier glasses. I used these glacier glasses daily for 45 days on an icefield expedition. Fit: They are comfortable under a helmet, beanie, or hat. These glasses run wide, so if you have a narrow face, consider trying them on before purchasing. The piece that goes behind your ears has a bendable wire in it that you can mold to whatever shape you like to make the glasses stay on better. The retention strap slides off easily as soon as your sunscreen lubes up the frame, so… Full review

Darn Tough Merino No-Show Sock Mesh

rated 5 of 5 stars I really like it, keeps clean itself, gets dry super fast. I was looking for lifetime products and one friend recommended to me this brand and its benefits. Then I made my research and found it. The size was perfect. Because fit perfect, I really like the feeling in my feet. I don't need to wash it always because if I let it "dry" clean itself it doesn't matter if was wet or not, and always is ready for use again. Are very comfortable, are really well made it, you can feel that in your feet! Full review
