Chaos CTR Stealth Heater Glove

rated 4 of 5 stars Glove liner that can add warmth to any outdoor glove. Packs up very small. Another Chaos CTR (Chaos Thermal Regulation) product that is always in my ski jacket pocket is a pair of the CTR Stealth Heater gloves liners. The glove is comprised of a warm stretchy fabric blend of 61% Polyester 33% Rayon (Viloft) 6% Elastane. A stretch knit cuff with a pull-on tab keeps the cold out and the warmth in.  I find these gloves work well alone in temperatures into the 40s and add about 10 degrees of comfort… Full review

Montane Minimus 777 Pull-On

rated 4 of 5 stars The Montane Minimus 777 is a 3-layer waterproof breathable jacket that eschews weight by using 7 denier fabrics for the membrane, inner and outer face (hence the name). It is spartan by design, but at only 4.7 oz still packs a hood, elasticized hem and cuffs, singular chest pocket, and water resistant zip. It would be best for trail running, thru hikers, or UL backpackers. FIT *For reference I am 6 foot, 170 lbs and received a men's large (42" chest, 34" waist). The fit of this jacket is spot on.

Opedix KNEE-Tec 2.0 Full Length Tights

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Technical tights that improve alignment for increased performance. A valuable tool that can be used for training, racing, or injury rehabilitation. When I first received the Opedix KNEE-Tec 2.0 tights I was not sure what to make of them. Opedix has utilized years of scientific research in the biomechanical movement of the human body when designing their performance wear. In order to achieve what Opedix calls Kinetic Health, they have designed their tights with what they call "Torque Reform Technology"… Full review

Outdoor Research ActiveIce Sun Sleeves

rated 5 of 5 stars Out of all the clothes I’ve used for hiking this is by far the cleverest, well executed, and best functional garment I had. I hiked over 1,000 miles with those sleeves, and did it in blazing sun, high altitude high radiation, and hot conditions. I have very white sensitive skin, and I was appalled by the thought of carrying and applying sun screen for the whole trip. Fortunately I came across the ActiveIce Sun Sleeves that offered the ideal solution for sun protection. Pros: Blocks the sun! It… Full review

ExOfficio Terma 1/4 Zip

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a great cool-season hiking shirt. It's breathable, warm, and feels great against the skin. The ExOfficio Terma 1/4 zip, long-sleeved shirt has been my favorite hiking shirt this winter. I love the Brandy Heather color, a deep wine color that goes nicely with any of my standard hiking pants in varying shades of khaki, tan and gray. On chilly mornings, the quarter-zipper gets zipped all the way up and I layer on all of my other shields against the admittedly wimpy California cold: fleece jacket,… Full review

Ridge Merino Heist 1/2 Zip Hoody

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Heist 1/2 Zip Hoodie is an ideal mid-to-heavy weight hoodie that does an admirable job in warm as well as cold weather. This sleek top is as perfect around town as it is performing on the trail or slopes. The Heist pullover is an ideal all-around piece of gear that will happily meet the needs of the most demanding active outdoors person! SPECS 270g/m Weight UPF 50+ Flatlocked Seams 1/2 Zip Pullover Low-Profile Hood Thumbholes Chest Zip Pocket Founded in 2014, Ridge Merino is a relatively new… Full review

Sockwell Ski Medium Compression Socks

rated 4 of 5 stars Medium compression socks provide performance and quicker recovery. Merino wool and Alpaca for warmth. I have about 20 downhill ski days on these Sockwell ski socks so far and I really like them. I have tested both the Men's ski medium and the ski ultra-light socks in a medium/large size to fit my size 9 foot. Other than the thickness and a bit more Merino wool in the medium sock they are pretty much alike in performance. Both feature a seamless toe with extra padding under the ball of my foot. Heel… Full review

Opedix BLADE-Tec 2.0 V-Neck Shirt

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Opedix crosses medical technology with sports in this shirt. Compression and tension are featured to improve performance, spinal alignment, and reduce pain. Opedix has taken the philosophy of Kinetic alignment from their already popular shorts and tights and moved it to the upper body with their Blade-Tech 2.0 shirt. By employing a variety of panels emanating from the center of the back and fanning outward the shirt both compresses and provides tension to aid in muscular alignment. By providing… Full review

MyPakage Pro Series 2-in-1

rated 5 of 5 stars Pro series long underwear and athletic shorts in one package. The unique MyPakage 3 dimensional pouch protects your precious parts. Unless you have worn MyPakage underwear, you are really missing a great experience. Utilizing their 3-dimensional keyhole technology pouch that surrounds your package, they give you the best feeling underwear on the planet. There is no more adjusting your package because the pouch keeps everything nicely tucked away and not in constant contact with your legs. Forget… Full review
