Black Diamond Men's Cold Forge Jacket
Great cold weather layer. For those that have read my reviews, know that I won't review unless I have had the product for more than a year. With that said, I used this jacket under a Gortex shell as my mid-winter guiding jacket pretty much all of last winter down to -25°C. There were times when I had to remove the shell because I got too warm. I also never managed to snag it or rip the outer material. Luck? I like the long length for covering my kidneys and the high collar for tucking my chin… Full review
Native Eyewear Eddyline
Lifetime warranty. Lightweight sunglasses with superior optics. The Native Eddyline sunglasses come with a lifetime warranty against any kind of destruction. I still can't believe they offer that. These sunglasses are constructed using Native's Rhyno-Tuff coinjected polymer frames to keep things super light but still super strong. Combined with Cusinol temple and nose pads the glasses fit well and stay on. The Eddyline glasses feature N3 polarized lenses that block up to four times more infrared… Full review
Swing Trek Liteflex Umbrella
This trekking umbrella is a great multi-use piece of gear. It is ultra lightweight and offers protection from sun and rain, keeps you cooler, you can use it hands-free, and it does much more. This is a review of the silver reflective-coated Swing Trek Liteflex Trek umbrella. I am not connected to the maker of this umbrella in any way. I got it on a good sale from Amazon, it typically retails for $40-$45. This umbrella has been licensed and marketed through a lot of different channels, so this umbrella… Full review
Running Kilts Running Kilt
Lightweight, comfortable, freedom. I am a nature and wildlife photographer and am out in the mountains or desert at least once a week. I am in wilderness areas, national and state parks, nature preserves, etc. I enjoy the comfort and freedom of lightweight comfortable outdoor clothing. I have worn different types of running gear which are perfect for hiking, walking, driving. I wear running kilts on trails with hikers and tourists, using gas stations, stores, go to restaurants, etc. No one has noticed,… Full review
Mountain Equipment Annapurna Jacket
I have bought this jacket for an up and coming trek to Everest base camp. I have tried it out in our milder climate on a colder day and the warmth was amazing. I have no doubt that I will not get cold in the Himalayas. I bought the large jacket. My chest is 42 inches and I have a 32 waist and the jacket fits perfectly. The adjustable and removable hood is perfect and if you need to wear a helmet the hood is comparable. The Velcro cuffs are snug. The Drilite fabric make it waterproof and windproof. Full review
The North Face Men's Reactor Hoodie
One shirt to rule them all! After seeing rangers and guides on Mt. Rainier wearing lightweight hoodies to protect themselves from the sun I decided to find one so I could wear less sunscreen. Sunscreen collects dust and becomes a stinky mess after a day on the trail. Plus, my daughter and girlfriends all universally hated my Lawrence of Arabia handkerchief-under-the-hat look: My old hoodless shirt to was snagged, stinky, stretched out to size XL and stained. You know it is bad when you smell YOURSELF. Full review
Outdoor Research Sombriolet Sun Hat
An all-around great hat for keeping the sun off my bald head and neck. Very comfortable, breathable, and lightweight. After many years of wearing ball caps, this summer I switched to a full-brim hat for summer hiking, canoeing, and other adventures. The main reason for the switch was because I was tired of lathering up my ears and neck with sunblock, only to get fried anyways. The OR Sombriolet has solved my issues and much more! (Very) leisurely paddling the Allegheny River. Fit and Comfort:I have… Full review
