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
This anorak is perfect for layering with a rain jacket to keep you warm when you venture into chilly territory. It's hooded and ribbed at the wrists to help contain body heat. I've made good use of it in Africa, Asia, and Alaska. Reversible if you need to switch up your color scheme. Definitely recommended for anyone who mountaineers, hikes, or camps. Used on and off for almost a year in alpine and/or arctic environments. Fits really well. Might benefit from a cinch at the waist or even on the hood. Full review
Superb. I wouldn't wear anything other than merino underwear for outdoor use year round and these are the best I've bought. I've tried Icebreaker (legs too short and fabric rides up) and SmartWool (not bad). Good midweight fabric here and grips the legs well, but not constrictive in the groin. Full review
Great spoon for digging deep into your dehydrated meal pouches. Long enough to keep your grimy hands out of the pouch when eating. Very light, strong Ti material should last forever. I was using a Light My Fire fork/spoon for several years but was always getting my hands dirty with food when trying to get those last morsels of goodness from the bottom of my food pouch. This Stoic Ti long handled spoon was on a clearance sale when I bought it and I have been very pleased with it. It is extremely… Full review
Great baselayer! Bought a couple of these on steepandcheap.com for about $30! What a great price for a merino wool baselayer. I've been out with them twice now in the Colorado winter and was impressed on how they regulated body temperature. The sleeves have thumb holes which come in handy to keep your hands warm. They are barely noticeable when not in use. I'm happy with this shirt so far and can't wait to wear them in the backcountry for a couple of days! Full review
