ExOfficio Give-N-Go Boxer Brief

rated 5 of 5 stars 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

rated 3.5 of 5 stars 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

rated 5 of 5 stars 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

Arc'teryx Men's Alpha SL Jacket

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Shocking durability. I am very disappointed with the durability of this jacket. After 6-7 years of very light use, the seams in the jacket around the waist, cuffs, and collar came apart and it appeared that the glue had failed. After sending it to Arc’teryx for assessment to Switzerland, at my own expense, I was advised that it had come to the end of its life and was beyond repair. The customer service department also advised that lightweight products were not as durable as heavier shell jackets. Full review

prAna Stretch Zion Convertible

rated 5 of 5 stars Perfect hiking pant. Probably my favorite piece of gear that I've owned for hiking. About as comfortable as a pair of pants get—lightweight, protection from wind and rain. They adjust at the waist with an easy pull when you're shedding weight on the trail. Stretch in all the right places. I own the convertible option, but a lot of times keep them as pants even in warmer environments because the breath-ability is outstanding. On the flip size, I've worn them in the winter for hikes or yard work… Full review

Toad&Co Ventilair Short Sleeve Shirt

rated 4 of 5 stars Bluesign fabric keeps you cool and moisture free. UV protection makes this a dual function shirt.

The Toad&Co Ventilair Short Sleeve Shirt is perfect for this purpose. The shirt is manufactured from "Bluesign" approved fabric that Toad&Co call Suncool. Combining organic cotton to pull the moisture from the body with heat reflecting hydrophobic polyester… Full review
