Darn Tough Men's Vertex Tab No Show Ultra-Light Cushion

rated 5 of 5 stars A lifetime replacement guarantee says it all. A very soft, warm Merino wool sock with extra cushion underfoot. Darn Tough socks all come with a no questions asked lifetime guarantee, and that tells you all you need to know about the quality of their socks. In my neverending quest for the ultimate hiking sock, I like to test socks that are designed for other sports, such as running and biking. Being a fan of trail runners and low rise hiking boots I did all my testing of these Darn Tough Merino wool… Full review

prAna Men's Mojo Short

rated 5 of 5 stars Comfortable, versatile, light, dries fast, well made. The short is very simple, which I find to be a good thing.  One of the best buys I have made.  I use these every day in the summer. I climb with them as the elastic band is non constrictive.  Sometimes I run with them.  They have two front pockets and a back one.  They are also comfortable to wear over tights if climbing in winter.  They dry fast, but are non adjustable.  I have had them for years and they show no signs of wear.  Full review

Pearl Izumi Pursuit 7" Shorts

rated 4 of 5 stars Stretchable, breathable, transfer dry shorts are great for running, hiking, or the gym. Supportive inner liner for comfort. Whether you are running, hiking, or just working out in the gym you can't beat the comfort of Pearl Izumi Pursuit shorts. Available in 3-, 5-, and 7-inch inseam lengths, Pursuit Shorts offer a lot of comfort in a lightweight package. Constructed from polyester and elastane they have just the right amount of stretch while providing excellent breathability and the ability to… Full review

Patagonia Men's Houdini Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars My go-to jacket for any outdoor endeavor. Pound for pound the warmest piece of gear out there. This is my favourite jacket ever, and one I never leave behind regardless of what outdoor pursuit I might be on.  Full review

Marmot Men's Ether DriClime Hoody

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Great wind resistant hoody. Inner fleece provides warmth and wicks sweat. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great warm windbreaker for medium activity. This hoody fits nice and close to the body, the inner fleece interferes with grippier (say merino wool) layers underneath which makes putting it on/taking it off a chore. The hood has one adjustment cord, gets in the way when looking around for oncoming traffic on a bike. The sleeves have a stretchy end, but it is not as tight as to… Full review

VIM & VIGR Nylon Compression Socks (20-30 mmHg)

rated 3 of 5 stars Over the calf moderate compression sock helps recovery during and after exercise. Very thin fabric allows good ventilation. I am quite a fan of compression socks in general and find they are very helpful for recovery after skiing, hiking, or backpacking. They certainly help prevent swelling and muscle soreness in the calves after strenuous excessive. Since I always wear thin socks when hiking and backpacking I was anxious to try these Vim & Vigr compression socks. Constructed of nylon and spandex… Full review

Trew Women's NuYarn Wool Pocket T

rated 5 of 5 stars The Trew Superlight NuYarn Wool Pocket T is an exemplary garment for layering or as a stand-alone summer T-shirt. It is one of the most comfortable and functional garments that I have ever worn. I am impressed by its continuous-wear abilities, which meet merino wool class performance, and may even exceed certain standards given the shirt’s lightweight and quick drying properties. The only problem it suffered from is some pilling in high-abrasion areas, which is common to merino wool fabrics. On… Full review

Darn Tough Coolmax Vertex Tab No Show Ultra-Light

rated 5 of 5 stars Seamless construction helps prevent blisters. Coolmax polyester keeps your feet cool. Lifetime guarantee. Recently I hiked the Tour of Mont Blanc, a classic 100-mile hut-to-hut trail that runs through France, Italy, and Switzerland as it winds its way around Mont Blanc. Knowing I would probably encounter rain at some point I left my normal trail runners home and took a pair of Ahnu lowrise waterproof boots. Picking the correct socks to match meant trying the boot on with a variety of socks. All would… Full review

Swiss Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

rated 3 of 5 stars Dyneema material rubberised socks that allow you to really feel the terrain under your feet. Minimises risk of cuts when wanting to go barefoot. The FYF (Free Your Feet) is a great pair of socks for those into water sports or those that want to go barefoot. Made out of Dyneema fibre that has tensile strength 15 times greater than steel it protects your feet from any type of cut (e.g. selfish, glass), friction injury (blisters from rough terrain) or scratches (from twigs and stones). However, it… Full review
