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

Sierra Designs Short Sleeve Pack Polo

rated 5 of 5 stars I have hiked in hundreds of different shirts, baselayers, fishing shirts, sleeveless monstrosities, they all kind of work just fine. The Pack Polo is more than fine, it is AWESOME!! It stretches, it breathes, it layers, and it doesn't look ridiculous!! This shirt is ideal for the adventure traveler, hiker, backpacker, or bike commuter who wants something technical, yet presentable. While wearing a pack or while bumming around town, the Pack Polo fits comfortably in the arm pits and mid section,… Full review

Darn Tough Men's Merino 1/4 Sock Mesh

rated 5 of 5 stars One of the best performing socks I've ever worn. I have really sweaty and hot feet. These not only keep my feet cool and dry they are comfortable. They fit well where they need to. Even though they are $13+ a pair, the life time warranty really make it worth it. I buy one pair a month. Eventually I'll never have to buy socks again. I use this specific model for running, everyday, and work. I work 12hrs + a day and they hold up. Full review

Columbia Whidbey II Water Short

rated 4 of 5 stars The Columbia Whidbey II shorts are a fantastic pair of shorts that are quite versatile. Whether you are hiking, swimming, or playing a sport, these shorts will keep you going and keep you cool! I bought these shorts this past spring and have worn them A LOT this spring and summer! These shorts are a well-fitting and relaxed pair of shorts with an elastic waist and built-in belt. You can keep them comfortably fitting or cinch them down if the trail gets rugged or you need to dive into a swimming… Full review
