Columbia Men's Silver Ridge Short Sleeve Shirt
UPF 30 protection at an affordable price. The same features as my Silver Ridge pants http://www.trailspace.com/gear/columbia/silver-ridge-cargo-pant/?review=38172 but with UPF 30 protection due to the short sleeve factor. Same true to size, same quality but also featuring two vents in the back for direct ventilation and enchanced breathability. The fabric is a little more "3D", so to speak, mesh weave in comparison to the SR pants that aids in not stick-to-your-skin feeling when sweaty.If you want… Full review
Columbia Silver Ridge Cargo Pant
My go-to summer pants. It's primary usage is light hiking and when hitting the gym but when in summer pretty much all the time! The color is zinc/voltage. The fit is normal and the sizing is true. I bought 32/32 even thought it's feels more relaxed after a while probably because the fabric gives that impression due to it's lightness.It comes with it's own belt. It features a front zipper and a partially elasticated waist on the sides. It has two front pockets big enough to fit your 5-6 inch smartphone. Full review
Sunday Afternoons Eclipse Cap
This is without a doubt the best lightweight, flexible cap I've ever owned. It can be completely folded (including the brim) and carried in your back pocket. At 2.2ozs you’ll forget you have it along! I’m a hat hater! i rarely wear a hat even though I own many. Since I wear eyeglasses, there are times when a hat is required such as a sunny golf match, hiking into the setting sun, a hard driving rain, heading to a public place with “hat head”, morning camping with crushed hair... When a… Full review
ExOfficio Give-N-Go Boxer Brief
6 star underwear! Would give 6 stars if I could. Have owned 2 pairs for about 5 years now. Initially purchased for treks to avoid the dreaded chafing, they are now used for any athletic venture. Quality - 2 pair that have lasted 5years, that alone is impressive. Material is kind on the skin - stretches well, but stays on the body. Comfort - Have worn on 15 mile hikes, lots of sweating and ZERO chafing. They wick moisture amazingly and keep their form after a long day. Breathable - No… Full review
L.L.Bean Men's Weather Challenger 3-in-1 Jacket
Good waterproof casual jacket. Not made to be skied in or for other technical use. Product best for wearing as a casual jacket. Excellent waterproofing. Not very breathable, but does have pit zips to dump heat. Not good for layering as inner puffer jacket layer is tight fitting and outer shell layer is large. Outer shell layer is too bulky and allows for gaps to form/puffs out around stomach. This made it ineffective for skiing in Maine. Insulation is not very good (I live in Maine with 30 to sub… Full review
Headsweats ProTech Hat
Fantastic, breathable hat that shades your neck. I live in Arizona and this hat makes hot runs bearable. There are a couple of features on this hat that elevate it from sun hats by others such as Sunday Afternoons, Tilley, REI, and Outdoor Research (all of which I've purchased prior to this hat). The biggest difference is breathability. The material used in this hat doesn't trap the heat as much as the other hats, so sweat and heat dissipate faster. Secondly, the cape or drape on the back of the… Full review
