MyPakage Action Series Boxer Brief

rated 4 of 5 stars The primary marketing edge of MyPakage's stretchy boxer briefs is a specially-shaped and partially separated pouch...but its real advantage lies in a no-chafe design with great fabric. The pouch feels odd at first; over time, I grew to really like these. They do a nice job wicking moisture and keeping you dry and are particularly good at drying quickly. They appear to be reasonably durable and did not chafe or bind. I would choose MyPakage boxer briefs over comparable boxer briefs based on overall… Full review

Bridgedale Men's Bamboo Lo

rated 5 of 5 stars This sock is comfortable and regulates temperature for all day comfort. Durable and does not retain odor. One of my most favorite pairs of socks. I have several pair and am please with how durable they have been over the years. The fabric is soft and does not retain odor like similar all synthetic socks do. Best for everyday wear and with hiking boots in all types of temperatures and weather. My feet stay warm but not too warm and the sock has great cushion when hiking all day with a pack. They… Full review

Arc'teryx Lana Comp Shirt LS

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The women's Lana and men's Pelion Comp Shirts LS offer up a durable, breathable shirt that lives up to its Arc'teryx branding. At 5 ounces, the crewneck shirt packs a wide range of uses into a light shirt. The wool blend—a wool yarn outer-layer mated with a nylon core—tolerates a wide range of temperature like wool will do, but it is coupled with lightweight nylon rip-stop style sleeves (which breathe), that I found let in the cold during winter wear. This shirt is marketed as a summer weight… Full review

Injinji Performance Micro Sock

rated 5 of 5 stars After the weirdness wears off they are great. I bought shoes on clearance and they have issues with most socks; possibly why they were on clearance.  The seam across the toe on my running socks dig into my feet and it hurts.  The Injinji toe socks fixed this and made mediocre shoes into pretty darn good shoes.  I had resigned myself to just deal with the shoes hurting my feet till I received a free pair of Injinji socks recently from a major outdoor catalog company. I had no idea if they would… Full review

Sierra Designs Men's Microlight 2 Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars A good, basic wind breaker (when did these begin being called wind shirts?). Breathable, packable and roomy enough for layering. This is one of the clothing items that make up a layered system that can handle a wide range of climates. From a winter camp in Wisconsin to windy days along the shores of Lake Michigan and bike commuting in Chicago this basic windbreaker works just fine. The price was good, quality top-notch. All it lacks is the high-priced name tag of other outdoor clothing. I bought… Full review

Patagonia Men's Houdini Jacket

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Well constructed, lightweight, and does keep the wind out. Not so good if it gets very wet but in light mist or rain it works fine. Well constructed, very light and easily packable. Runs true to size. I'm about 5'11" 190lbs and the large is just right. Seems very reistant for overall wear. All in all a good light jacket. Full review

Pearl Izumi Men's P.R.O Fly Evo Pullover

rated 4.5 of 5 stars It stops ALL wind, all snow, keeps out a surprising amount of the cold, breathes exceedingly well, sheds light rain, and, if it gets wetted out in a heavier rain, it drys quickly. It has more reflective trim than anything I have ever seen. It is durable. Great for biking or running in cool to cold weather, especially in cities where lighting is not good at night. Highly recommended. This really is almost the miracle outer layer for bikers (and I hear that runners like it too). It is so thin, it… Full review

The North Face Class V Trunk

rated 5 of 5 stars I own four pairs of these shorts. I'm a big fan. These shorts fit true to size and have a nice built-in liner. It's nice and comfortable, unlike the liners of shorts from some other brands that I've worn. The shorts rest a couple of inches above the knee, and they are comfortable when moving. They work well in activities ranging from running to swimming. A drawstring helps keep the shorts tight in the water. The shorts dry pretty quickly—maybe 15 minutes in the sun or 30-45 outside of the sun. Full review

ExOfficio Give-N-Go Boxer Brief

rated 5 of 5 stars Fastest drying underwear that I have ever had. Makes for the perfect travel and camping underwear. When I first bought a pair, I thought that they were very pricey. Now on my sixth pair and I feel that they are well worth the money. I have hand-washed these boxer briefs in streams, sinks and in the shower. If I wash them in the morning and hang dry, they are dry by the afternoon/evening. Two pair, is all you need for your adventures. Full review
