Ibex Knitty Gritty Fingerless Glove

rated 4 of 5 stars great merino gloves i have bought a pair of these gloves about two years ago, now they have some holes and the wool is not in great shape, but believe, i have used them every day for about 5 months on each year. Also the goat draws in the palm helps you to grab things with more grip than a classic wool glove. Full review

Black Rock Gear The Original

rated 5 of 5 stars Impossibly light and compressible. Good wind resistance and warmth. Hate how beanies make your head itch and tie your hair in knots? This may be your new favorite hat.  I received this beanie as a Trailspace prize.  I like hats and already have a ton, but this one is definitely unique.  I know of no other down beanie on the market.  Testing conditions: I wore mine on Mount Rainier on a day ski to Camp Muir in mid May. It is almost never windless here and this day it was 24-ish degrees (F) and… Full review

prAna Lasser Jacket

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Good insulation with this 600 power fill down. Good insulation with this 600 power fill down. Use it in winter for common work days. Fit is a bit loose, but very comfortable. Enough DWR to use it in a not-too-rainy city. Just one thing I dislike is that it gets very dirty on borders and edges. After a while it is impossible to really clean it. Full review

Black Diamond Women's First Light Hoody

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The Black Diamond First Light Hoody keeps me warm and toasty in the great outdoors. However, the PrimaLoft Silver Insulation Active synthetic insulation lacks the snuggly comfort of down and even some other PrimaLoft jackets I've worn. For this reason, it doesn’t always make the cut when I’m packing my bag for a full day outdoor adventure. Testing Conditions I tested the Black Diamond First Light from late January through April as a member of the Trailspace Review Corps. I wore the First Light… Full review

Mountain Lodge Merino Wool Outdoor Sport Socks

rated 4 of 5 stars Mountain Lodge Merino Wool Outdoor Sport Socks are a great option for day hiking and casual wear when your day includes hiking boots/shoes and casual footwear. They may also be good for those who hike with liner socks. I bought these socks on a lark to see if I could add some personality to my hiking sock collection.  Don't get me wrong, function and comfort are more important than fashion on trial. However, as a long-time lover of socks with personality, I couldn't pass these up.  Fit and Comfort… Full review

Mountain Equipment Ibex Pant

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent lightweight stretchable soft shell pant suitable for hiking, backpacking, snowsports, and mountaineering. Water resistant and wind blocking, they are comfortable over a wide range of temperatures. I received a pair of the Mountain Equipment Ibex Pants in January and have had the pleasure of putting them through a thorough testing in a variety of conditions. A pair of 34" waist, regular length pair fit my 5'9", 165lb frame very well. The fit is described as Alpine with a regular ankle. Full review

Darn Tough Men's Vertex 1/4 Sock Ultra-Light Cushion

rated 5 of 5 stars I don't know how Darn Tough does it, but I have put over 500 miles on a single pair of Vertex Running Socks, and they still look and feel great! It defies explanation. Quick—Which of these two socks was run in once and which was run in 550 miles? It's a trick question. It's the same sock. The BOTTOM picture was taken on Christmas Day, after a three-mile run. The upper picture follows 550 miles of running over the last five months (including one full marathon and one half marathon). DT's reputation… Full review
