Patagonia Men's Lightweight Synchilla Snap-T Pullover

rated 5 of 5 stars I've had this fleece since 5th grade. I'm now 4 years out of college (that's 15 years!) and it hasn't begun to show wear. Just buy one. For those of you who still want to know more about this fleece after reading the opening summary, it is true...I've had this thing for 15 years and I've worn it in all sorts of weather doing all sorts of activities. Yard work, hiking/camping, wearing it to football games, you name it. This thing has been with me through lots of life — campfires with friends, long… Full review

Montane Shark Ultra Tee

rated 5 of 5 stars The Montane Shark Ultra Tee is a most impressive garment! It fits well, it breathes very well, it remains virtually odor free, and it wears like iron. Although it was designed for trail running I highly recommend it, without reservation, for any athletic outdoor activity and particularly as a base layer. Features: The Montane Shark Ultra Tee is a garment designed for Mountain Running, Trail Running, and Mountain Marathons. It is made of a synthetic hyper stretch fabric that Montane calls Quartz… Full review

Purple Rain Activewear Hiking Skirt

rated 5 of 5 stars Love my skirt! The pockets allow for hands-free, purse-free activities. Super comfortable, wears well (can take a beating) and washes up great. As far as active skirts go, I haven't found anything that works this well (and looks this cute!). Full review

Purple Rain Activewear Hiking Skirt

rated 5 of 5 stars I love this skirt! The material is lightweight and comfortable. I wear it backpacking and on my rafting trips as it dries very quickly. It falls at a great height right above the knee. I would recommend this product to anyone that needs a skirt for outdoorsy applications. Full review

Injinji Trail 2.0 Midweight Mini-Crew

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These socks are great for hiking! I love these socks! They fit perfectly and really do help prevent blisters. I got some terrible blisters on my toes and the balls of my feet on a 20-mile backpacking trip early this summer and subsequently bought these socks. I did the same hike last weekend and I did not re-blister my feet even though I was carrying even more weight this time! The socks are comfortable, moisture-wicking, and stretchy. They have a tighter, stretchy area in the middle that really… Full review

SmartWool Men's Hiking Ultra Light Mini

rated 4 of 5 stars After dismissing this sock as sub-par, I have a new found appreciation of them. They are not a great hiking sock, but they are pretty decent for running and cycling. I have own this sock for more than a year. On my first backpacking trip with it, I wrote it off as a bad purchase. The reason for this was the low cut did not work well with a light hiker (like my Merrell Moab Ventilator pictured here). Shortly into a hike, especially in wet conditions, the top of the sock is below the back of the shoe,… Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Incandescent Hoody

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great for climbing/belaying. Warm. Light. Simply wow! Bought this jacket last year just in time for a whole week at -42 degrees Celsius in Banff, AB. This thing kept me warm the whole time! Great for rock and ice climbing because of it double zipper feature, which is awesome when belaying. It can also pack inside of its own pocket to about the size of a 2L Nalgene bottle and weighs virtually nothing at all. Bottom line.. warmest, most packable and efficient down jacket out there!  Full review
