Patagonia Men's Houdini Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars Ultra lightweight, packable, minimalist jacket. I bought this jacket to throw in a small pack, along with an ultralight thermal layer (Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket) for long rock climbing routes. The two together add a lot of warmth in a tiny package for a combined weight of 10 oz. I find that I am likely to throw it my pack or pocket whenever I am unsure of the wind or temperatures I will encounter—you don't even know you are carrying it. But the single horizontal chest pocket… Full review

Outdoor Research Echo L/S Duo Tee

rated 5 of 5 stars The Outdoor Research Echo Duo long sleeve shirt is a fantastic shirt for backpacking. It is lightweight, breathable, wicks moisture, dries quickly, and provides UV protection — all from a fabric that is silky soft against the skin. This is a review of the Outdoor Research Echo Duo long-sleeve shirt. The Echo comes in four styles: short sleeve, long sleeve, long sleeve zip, and long sleeve hoodie. I have one of each but the zip. The fabric and cut are the same on all of these versions. The long… Full review

Buff Visor

rated 3 of 5 stars Beautiful, but pricey! Buff Visor. The popular headband company that wanted to make a hat with the addition of a totally useless neoprene visor that double-acts as a sweat absorber if you flip it against your forehead until you get a headache or pass out from the smell of neoprene. And that is why I ripped it off. Much better now!The length is now just over 50cm.The Coolmax fabric ensures wicking, but this particular headband is too hot compared to my other generic one.  It offers 95% UV protection… Full review

Seirus Thermax Deluxe Glove Liner

rated 1.5 of 5 stars The glove keeps hands warm. First time worn, seams just pulled apart. I made multiple attempts, but the manufacturer never replied. I bought the product as a liner. It kept my hands very warm. Wore them about an hour. I got home, removed the outer glove to find two seams opened up. I sent two emails to the manufacturer. They refused to respond.  I presume that all their products have quality issue, and choose to ignore them. Full review

Icebreaker Fingerless Merino Wool Gloves

rated 5 of 5 stars Great solution if you need fingertips handy. Merino is smooth, doesn't itch. Good for cool weather and as a liner for cooking, photography, pitching a tent. Sadly may have been discontinued. Closeout purchase from an Icebreaker store that closed in our area. 100% merino wool. Very stretchy, not tight, cuff is ribbed and doubled over. Ends of fingers are nicely finished, no loose ends. Thicker than 200 weight merino long johns. I use them often during shoulder season hikes on their own. Very minor… Full review

Sunday Afternoons Eclipse Cap

rated 5 of 5 stars This is without a doubt the best lightweight, flexible cap I've ever owned. It can be completely folded (including the brim) and carried in your back pocket. At 2.2 oz you’ll forget you have it along! I’m a hat hater! I rarely wear a hat even though I own many. Since I wear eyeglasses, there are times when a hat is required such as a sunny golf match, hiking into the setting sun, a hard driving rain, heading to a public place with “hat head”, morning camping with crushed hair... When a hat… Full review

ExOfficio Give-N-Go Boxer Brief

rated 5 of 5 stars 6-star underwear! Would give six stars if I could. Have owned two pairs for about five years now. Initially purchased for treks to avoid the dreaded chafing. They are now used for any athletic venture. Quality: Two pair that have lasted five years, that alone is impressive. Material is kind on the skin, stretches well, but stays on the body.   Comfort: Have worn on 15-mile hikes, lots of sweating and ZERO chafing. They wick moisture amazingly and keep their form after a long day. Breathable: No… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Men's Transition Zip T

rated 5 of 5 stars I would echo all of these reviews. This is the best piece of three- season gear I own! I would echo all of these reviews. This is the best piece of three-season gear I own. Its weight and performance are unmatched by anything else. The only thing it lacks is that it's not waterproof, but pair with a light rain jacket and a short sleeve technical t-shirt and you can be prepared on the trail for almost anything from 40-80 degrees rain or shine. Paired with a long sleeve baselayer and a vest and you… Full review

Dr.Cool Short Sleeve Cooling Shirt

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Innovative material cools the user without chemicals. Moisture-wicking, circulation, and evaporation reduce the shirt's surface temperature as much as 30%. In a world filled with technology, I am always amazed when I come across a new technology that offers outdoor enthusiasts something new. The Dr. Cool Cooling Shirt is one of those products. While I have seen and tested other cooling shirts they all accomplished the feat using chemicals, what sets Dr.Cool apart from the crowd is they use Coolcores… Full review
