Arc'teryx Theta SVX Jacket
The definition of a true storm fortress. My first Arc'teryx waterproof shells. Bought last Autumn/Fall. 80D GoreTex pro shell is durable & surprisingly resistant to abrasion & snagging for such a relatively lightweight material. Much in the same way as Arcteryx's Apha SV is. But, thankfully, with a slightly more generous expedition fit to accommodate layering - as well as my 'Beefy' Rugby player proportions. But still allowing for pretty much unrestricted movement of arms, head, shoulders… Full review
Beyond Clothing A5 Soft Shell Shirt
Keeps you warm when need it, and cool when you don't. Great for areas that are cooler in the morning but warm up throughout the day. As a Ranger with TheDyrt, I sometimes get the opportunity to try out different products and recently I had the opportunity to try out the A5 Soft Shell shirt from Beyond Clothing. The biggest thing that I loved about the shirt was how light weight it was. I love taking clothing in the backcountry that works well, but also has a lighter weight than similar products. Full review
Swiss Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)
Outdoors socks made in Dyneema, which according to wiki is 8-15 times stronger than steel. Protects the feet from stings and cuts, while at the same time keeping them warm. I love running and doing outdoors stuff in these. They are very light (perhaps 50 grams each?) and versatile. I use them for running and forest walking, climbing etc now, but can see many other uses for them. For example next time I go sea kayaking I will bring them instead of ordinary shoes or sandals, as they dry quickly… Full review
enLIGHTened Equipment Rain Wrap
This simple, kilt style, silnylon wrap is great for those who hate wearing rain pants because they need more ventilation. Light to carry and easy to put on, especially compared to rain pants, the wrap works best on open trails and paired with a jacket or short poncho. So often I find that getting raingear out and on before I'm soaked is a pipedream. Combined with the steamy interior I often opted to just get wet from the rain rather than bother unless it was really cold. I'd just hike faster to… Full review
Mountain Hardwear Men's Ghost Lite Jacket
An excellent packable windbreaker that will stuff into ANY empty space you have in your pack. I love my Mountain Hardwear Ghost Lite Jacket! At 6' and 210 lbs I'm able to get into the Large very comfortably. It fits without being "fitted". Clearly, since they've kept the weight to 3 oz, there isn't any "extra" material. This jacket stuffs itself into its own right-hand pocket and winds up being about the size of a kid's pencil bag. After that, it will easily stuff into any available space you… Full review
Airblaster Men's Ninja Suit
Looking for a "onesie?" The Airblaster Ninja One-Piece Suit offers all I need for a full coverage, draft free, mid-weight base layer...without the bulk! As is often the case for me (being on a fixed income) I enter review contests to win gear that I need (but can't afford) for my passionate pursuits. Winning a TheDyrt campground review contest, I garnered a coveted gift certificate to Airblaster (myairblaster.com). I must admit, the gift certificate was substantial and I was no less grateful...but… Full review
Outdoor Research Highcamp 3-Finger Gloves
Good but not perfect. A compromise between warmth and dexterity that works reasonably well in most situations. I had a pair of the original Mutant and wanted to replicate the functionality of the original, the military version being too heavy and stiff by comparison. Going by the OR website sizing guide I ordered a pair of XL but they were too big, I then ordered a pair of Large but they turned out to be a tad small and tight. Luckilly I had in my stash a pair of early OR liner glioves in a very… Full review
