Columbia Men's Silver Ridge Convertible Pant
These pants are are very light weight and durable. They are also very comfortable. These pants are great. I bought them for camping and hiking, but find myself wearing them on the regular. They are very lightweight and great for mildy warm conditions, but the material is also somewhat wind resistant and so makes them ok for cooler situations as well. They are also super durable. On a hike recently, I was getting caught in all kinds of thorns and I just plowed through and the pants don't show… Full review
SmartWool Midweight Turtleneck
Luxurious warmth!!!! WOW! I could just leave it at that but I will elaborate. I first bought the SmartWool NTS 250 bottoms, which I love, so when I saw this shirt on sale I couldn't resist. Although both the top and bottoms are NTS 250 the top is much thicker and sooooo soft. I like staying warm outdoors and this shirt has kept me just that! I wear it all winter and bring it along for all my hiking and camping endeavours in the summer as well. I usually sleep in it when I'm at higher elevations… Full review
SmartWool Women's NTS Mid 250 Bottom
These are without a doubt the best long johns I have ever owned! I am 5'7", 125lbs and I bought the mediums. They fit like a glove (well literally as they are next to skin). So comfy and non restricting, you barely notice you have them on. I did a lot of research in my quest for super warm long johns and came to the conclusion that wool was going to be the warmest. I am not disappointed. The waistband is wider so they don't roll down as some other brands do. I love being outdoors but don't like… Full review
EMS Men's Thunderhead Jacket
The Thunderhead Jacket is a lightweight, waterproof, and windproof jacket suitable for use in all seasons. The rollaway hood is easily accessible and doesn't fill up with rain if you'd rather wear a rain hat. Exterior pockets are large and easy to access. Long pit zips help ventilate even in warmer weather. I bought my EMS Thunderhead Jacket about a year ago because I needed a lightweight, waterproof and windproof shell for 4-season use. It's completely waterproof, and the pit zips allow for excellent… Full review
Mountain Hardwear Women's Winter Wander Pant
My favourite hiking pant! Try them, you won't be disappointed. I found these pants on sale a couple years ago and thought I would give them a try. Wow, sure glad I bought them. I absolutely love them! As they are named 'Winter Wander Pant' don't let that mislead you. Yes, they are great for winter as they are a little thicker than your average pant (as compared to the Marmot scree for ex.) but they are great for all year use when out hiking in the mountains. As we all know, it's not as warm in… Full review
REI Men's Revelcloud Hoodie Jacket
Awesome all-purpose jacket. Ultra comfort and ultra-utility. I've had this jacket (actually a men's large) for three years now and it's been a dream the whole time. It's kept me warm across a dozen counties, including in the Inland Northwest and Norwegian winter, all while staying still looking almost new. Except the oil stain from where I spilled nearly a cup of mayonnaise off a Zapikanka in Poland :P Makes an awesome pillow once stowed, too! Full review
Outdoor Research Men's Paladin Jacket
A great, no-nonsense rain shell from OR. Lightweight and truly waterproof. If you're looking for a basic rain layer for outdoor activities, this is a great option. It'll keep you dry during even the strongest rain and is sort of lightweight. However, it won't keep you warm by itself (but is super layering-friendly) and the hood is awkwardly large without a helmet, but still does its job. Also, as this is a climbing-oriented jacket, it's weird there's no pack-up-and-clip-to-harness bag included. Full review
