Craghoppers NosiLife Prospect Long-Sleeved Shirt
Permanent Insect Shield sets this shirt apart from the crowd. Anti-bacterial, moisture control, and solar shield make for a very versatile shirt.

Columbia OutDry Ex Eco Jacket
First ever jacket made from 100% recycled fabric from 100 plastic bottles. 100% breathable and waterproof. The Columbia OutDry Ex Eco Rain Jacket is a 100% recycled jacket and is waterproof and lets you breath with ease compared to the other so called breathables. I wore this jacket on chilly mornings while climbing multiple 1,000 feet plus on Quebec's IAT section hike. It performed magnificently and this is one of my pieces for the Triple Crown of hiking. All my gear reviews have now been hiker… Full review
MPG Elite Seamless T-Shirt
Odor control is the name of game with this Polygiene tee shirt. Nice fit, good ventilation, plus an interesting knit make this tee shirt stand out from the crowd. While planning my latest backpacking trip, a section hike on the Pacific Crest Trail, I realized that I had worn out my previous odor control tee shirt. Since I would be hiking with my wife for 16 days, being a smell mess was not going to work. A quick internet search brought me to the MPG Sport website. While I was not familiar with this… Full review
Black Diamond Men's Cold Forge Jacket
Great cold weather layer. For those that have read my reviews, know that I won't review unless I have had the product for more than a year. With that said, I used this jacket under a Gortex shell as my mid-winter guiding jacket pretty much all of last winter down to -25°C. There were times when I had to remove the shell because I got too warm. I also never managed to snag it or rip the outer material. Luck? I like the long length for covering my kidneys and the high collar for tucking my chin… Full review
Native Eyewear Eddyline
Lifetime warranty. Lightweight sunglasses with superior optics. The Native Eddyline sunglasses come with a lifetime warranty against any kind of destruction. I still can't believe they offer that. These sunglasses are constructed using Native's Rhyno-Tuff coinjected polymer frames to keep things super light but still super strong. Combined with Cusinol temple and nose pads the glasses fit well and stay on. The Eddyline glasses feature N3 polarized lenses that block up to four times more infrared… Full review
Swing Trek Liteflex Umbrella
This trekking umbrella is a great multi-use piece of gear. It is ultra lightweight and offers protection from sun and rain, keeps you cooler, you can use it hands-free, and it does much more. This is a review of the silver reflective-coated Swing Trek Liteflex Trek umbrella. I am not connected to the maker of this umbrella in any way. I got it on a good sale from Amazon, it typically retails for $40-$45. This umbrella has been licensed and marketed through a lot of different channels, so this umbrella… Full review
