Outdoor Research Men's Couloir Gloves
Great gloves for cold days on the move. Idiot straps, as it turns out, are a very smart idea. The Couloir Gloves are tough, warm, and make great backcountry work gloves. I DID get a little dampness in them and I wish the booger wiper on the thumb was softer and I wish it had a goggle squeegee. They are warm enough and nimble enough for everything except sitting still. Test day, wet and snowy Skiing, "I like these gloves." Testing Conditions: I have been using these as my ski gloves this winter… Full review
Outdoor Research Men's Southback Sensor Gloves
The Southback Sensor Gloves by Outdoor Research make it possible to snap photos and stay connected on the trail without risking frozen fingers. They incorporate sensor technology so you can use touchscreen devices without de-gloving. The Southback is a comfortable glove that keeps me warm even on cold winter days. However, while the sensor technology works well, I found myself having to take my gloves off in order to access my phone, and therefore just didn't take advantage of the sensor feature… Full review

Eddie Bauer Goose Down Face Mask
A well thought out and useful piece of equipment for really cold weather. I found this beautiful piece of history in a local thrift shop. At first glance, it looked rather peculiar. I knew it had to be old since I hadn't seen anything like this in recent history. After having inspected it, I realized that this was a functional piece of winter gear. The mask is filled with high quality goose down. The material is a tight weave windstopper fabric. The back half of the mask is an elastic material that… Full review
Marmot Men's Alpinist Jacket
Back in 1988, I purchased my first Alpinist Jacket, a yellow and blue one. That jacket has lasted to this day. However, I was ready for a different color scheme and I was interested in Gortex Pro. I purchased an XL since I am 6'2" at 200lbs and the fit is perfect for me. I love all the pockets and the wire rimmed hood is great. Keep up the good work, Marmot! The Alpinist fits to size. However, if you are layering, which most of us will, go one size larger. The angel wing movement makes this jacket… Full review
Bambool Hooded Top
An expensive top with subpar stitching, fit and lacking in quality control. I purchased this top for all season UPF protection on mostly western trips. I had purchased another top from Bambool that was a baselayer and really liked the fit, wicking properties, and anti-stank that it afforded after several days. This top has eventually had the same issues, minus fit, that I've had upon initially receiving the hooded top. *I'm not too sure about most people, but when I pay this much for one article… Full review
Gerry Sweater Down Jacket
Since I've been referenced in some of the comments, I guess it's incumbent that I weigh in a bit. I researched and wrote the book "GERRY: TO LIVE IN THE MOUNTAINS" back in 2008 and with an update in 2011 after Gerry Cunningham passed away. As the researcher and writer of the GERRY book, my chief sources were Gerry himself, his daughter, and one of his sons (Pete). I also had much input from other of Gerry's peers in the Boulder, Colorado, area where he lived and worked up until he got absorbed by… Full review
