Black Crystal Hiking Ski Snow Gaiters

rated 5 of 5 stars Can't beat these for the price! A decent breathable well made gaiter made in the USA! What more can I say? If these aren't durable enough for you, they even have a Kevlar model that's only like $10 more. So far I think these are the best out there for the price. Shoot I could buy two pair and still pay less than what others are charging for the same thing. Very well made, will update later this winter after use. Full review

Rab Men's Neutrino Endurance Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Really nice jacket with great reviews all across the internet! I just got this jacket and have yet to test it out in the cold. I'm 6' 165 and ordered a large and it fits great with room for some layers if needed. Great for my frame. Glad I ordered a size up. Will update review later this winter! Full review

REI Men's Therum Down Vest

rated 4.5 of 5 stars For the price it is a great vest. Hydrophobic down (water resistant), wind proof shell (about 55mph) two hand warmer pockets, a chest pocket and a media pocket with a cord port plus a hem cinch to keep out the wind. It is very light and has a comfortable fit. Fits well and comfortable, cinch waist, has a DWR shell and water resistant down. It's a vest so it breathes OK. It is 650 fill and warm. Its cut allows one to layer underneath. Full review

Columbia Men's Steens Mountain Full Zip

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Overall a good replacement to a cotton sweatshirt. Great for mild temps/conditions. I always like Columbia fleeces, but over the years it has changed. Now if you have a Benton Springs which is the same thing but a women's, the Benton is a lot softer compared to this. I will do a review on that later. I bought the Steens jacket on sale as I certainty couldn't pass it up. I wanted a replacement for a sweatshirt after learning cotton sweatshirt is not fun when wet. It surpassed my expectations of warmth… Full review

Royal Robbins Traveler Stretch Short

rated 4.5 of 5 stars So many great features combined into one awesome pair of shorts. The Royal Robbins Traveler Stretch Shorts are now my go-to shorts for numerous activities. I received these shorts, along with several other items, as a prize for being Trailspace's “Reviewer of the Month”.One of the first things that I noticed when I first started inspecting these shorts was the quality. They are well made and have great stitching. Stylish enough to pair with a nice shirt and wear out in town and versatile enough… Full review

The North Face Thermoball Pullover

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The usual excellent quality and spendy retail pricing from The North Face. Excellent addition to my cool/cold weather wardrobe, but only because I got it on a close-out deal (not a 2nd). This pullover retailed for more than I wanted to spend, but the reviews, coupled with an excellent deal I found elsewhere convinced me to order. I have been wearing it a few weeks and it's been very good, though not great. I give it 4.5 stars based primarily on cost to performance. For a synthetic, it is very lightweight… Full review

JWalking Designs Mad About Plaid Active Skirt/Kilt

rated 4 of 5 stars An excellent skirt/kilt for MEN and women hikers and backpackers. Nice length. Like the blue/green plaid colors. This is a really comfortable, well-built walking, hiking, and backpacking skirt/kilt for MEN and women. As I wear this more around home, in my home-office, and while working outside on the ranch, I am appreciating this skirt more and more. Purchased the "Mad-About-Plaid Blue/Green" women’s. Alison proportioned the material nicely top to bottom, providing a real range of motion not… Full review
