Seirus Windstopper Cyclone gloves
The Seirus Windstopper Cyclone gloves are warm, lightweight, and allow for amazing dexterity. They wick away moisture like crazy and are very quick-drying. I was looking for a more technical, slimmer profile glove to replace my very warm but bulky wool gloves for snowshoeing, and saw the Seirus Windstopper Cyclone at a trading post in Greenville, ME. I wore them today while snowshoeing in temps around 10F, with wind chills of around -10F, and my hands weren't even thinking of getting cold. I fully… Full review
I bought Native Apex sunglasses at a large discount online (around Xmas time 2014). Upon their arrival, my gf said if I ever wore them around her in public she would pretend she didn't know me. After a day or two spent trying to defend the glasses, I have to agree - they are hideous looking; the cut is... just... silly looking.

REI Men's Co-Op Down Jacket
A fairly lightweight affordable down jacket that isn't only fashionable, but functional as well! Fit: True to size. I'm an XL, and it works great to wear by itself, with a sweatshirt underneath it, or underneath a rain jacket. It is very comfortable and feels great on the skin, and is still quite breathable. Adjustability: There are no adjustable features on the jacket, not a big issue for me though. Water resistant: Haven't used it in the rain yet, but I put my arm in the sink and it seemed to… Full review
Montane Super Terra Pants
These are rugged outdoor pants which can be used for many different activities. Durable, yet stretchy, Montane’s Super Terra Pants are comfortable in fit and feel. With plenty of deep pockets located nearly everywhere, having access to any gear or food on the trail isn’t an issue. Even with leg vents, I’d still recommend wearing these for cool/cold weather use as the material itself isn’t very breathable. Testing Process Montane claims that the Super Terra Pants can be used for several uses… Full review
Mountain Hardwear Minalist Jacket
Minalist Jacket incorporates the latest Dry Q Elite fabric ,which keeps you dry inside. Asymmetric full length zipper and short expansion zipper keeps the chin protected from abrasion with enough room for a baklava. Best use for resort or back country skiing. Highly recommended. Overall view with left chin zipper open Showing internal hood pulls running outside into hood; also chamois lined chin flap. Adjusters are hidden in the hood at the top of the collar. You adjust by pinching the adjuster… Full review
The North Face Fuse Uno Jacket
The North Face Fuseform Uno is a lightweight (12oz), 3-layer HyVent Alpha, alpine designed shell which boasts an industry changing innovation dubbed FuseForm. In brief, it allows for different weights of a material to be woven into a single fabric without the use of seams or stitching. This single piece is then folded, paper airplane style, into a jacket. The fit, and strategic added durability, in the upper torso, hood and shoulders are all major pros, while there are some omissions such as pit… Full review
TAD Praetorian Hoodie
This hoodie is incredibly warm and well built. It comes at a hefty price tag, but I feel it is well worth the price. This is a really great piece of clothing. 100% merino wool is extremely warm. I received it for Xmas, and have worn it as much as I can without looking like I never change my clothes, although even after five days of wearing, I don't notice any stink, I just feel like I need to wash it. I find that even during a high wind, it blocks it out. When you start moving and generating some… Full review
