RailRiders WeatherTop

rated 5 of 5 stars A highly durable, comfortable, pullover that does not restrict arm movements. I wore this piece every day for a 7-day fly fishing excursion in the Amur River Basin of the Khentii Province in Mongolia. It was great in the mid-October cold weather and wind of the Mongolian Steppe and Mongolia Siberia where we ended up. We were fly fishing with large rods and heavy streamers which requires high arm motion double haul casting. The casting motion never felt restricted and kept me comfortable and protected… Full review

RailRiders WeatherTop

rated 4 of 5 stars This is my preferred outer layer for shoulder season mountain biking. It cuts the wind when I need it to and vents when I want it to. I am never worried about abusing it hitting branches because it's so burly, yet it is light enough that I'm not bothered while wearing it. I love this jacket. I'm a hardcore proponent of windshirts as a layer of just about any system and this is a valuable one in my quiver any time I am doing something that mind find me scraping against branches or other abrasive… Full review

RailRiders WeatherTop

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I primarily use this for backcountry skiing. It is great for those early and late season days when it's way too warm to wear your winter coat. This is a remake of an old RailRiders layer brought back with some new improvements. It's a very unique piece, a soft-shell-ish pullover that does a decent job of keeping out water and an excellent job of keeping out wind. I got one for christmas last year and used it sporadically for the rest of the winter. The best use I found for this top is backcountry… Full review

Mammut Prussic Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A super light wind jacket, that packs so small and light, you'll never need to leave it at home. The jacket has been discontinued, but an updated version is available... the Mammut MTR 201 Micro Jacket. Had been looking to upgrade my twelve year old Patagonia Helium windshirt, with something lighter and more packable. Had looked a several, and was trying to make a decision, when I ran across some of these on a clearance rack at my local REI store. After looking at it, and trying it on, I was seduced… Full review

CEP Women's Compression Running Sock

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A sock that speeds up recovery and keeps your legs/feet stable and feeling fresh during a long run. The first thing I noticed about CEP socks is how bold and bright the colors are. Luckily, there are black and white options for the more conservative dressers. I prefer the funky colors and have fun mixing and matching them. I'm wearing the bright blue CEP socks!  Getting them on Truthfully, ladies, these socks can be harder to put on than even the most noncompliant pair of pantyhose or spanx —… Full review

Salomon Active glove

rated 3 of 5 stars Lightweight, breathable gloves that offer protection from the elements and a comfortable fit. Order one size smaller for the perfect fit. I wear my Salomon Running Gloves 3/4 seasons. The lightweight, breathable design makes them perfect for cooler days but also keeps your hands warm on the coldest of nights. I ordered a size smaller because these gloves are very stretchy and ordering smaller ensures a snug fit that is also easy to get off while running if your hands become too hot. I also wear… Full review

Asics FujiTrail Hoodie

rated 5 of 5 stars Great mid layer for high aerobic activities. Great coverage and comfort, for the times that a fleece is too much, but a base layer alone is too little. The Asics Fuji Trail Hoodie, or Asics Fuji Hoody as they seem to call it in Europe, is a great mid layer. I often run hot and find no need for many of the otherwise very nice grid layers on the market, until it is around -10˚C.  This hoody seems to fall between a thick base layer and a thin fleece. So perfect for running or otherwise high aerobic… Full review

Stoic Merino Comp Shirt - Long Sleeve

rated 4 of 5 stars The Stoic Merino Comp Shirt is a comfortable shirt that wicks moisture extremely well. It keeps you warm or cool as needed. The fabric has the right amount of stretch, and it's machine washable. This has been my go-to shirt for snowshoeing over the past three winters. With a silkweight base layer underneath it and a wind and rain shell on top I'm comfortable snowshoeing in temps around -10°F because my sweat isn't making me cold. Wearing just this shirt while out hiking around a cedar swamp with… Full review

Icebreaker Sonic Short Sleeve Crewe

rated 4 of 5 stars Lightweight merino wool. Soft, comfortable and no stink after days in the backcountry. The Icebreaker Sonic short sleeve shirt is soft to the touch, lightweight, and durable. There was no evidence of abrasion after wearing this shirt with a backpack for many miles. It was very breathable when exercising, I never felt like I was overheating. It dried quickly on the body and kept me comfortably warm as temperatures cooled.  The shirt is well constructed, seams are finished well, and tags perforated… Full review
