Ultra 109 GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars This trail shoe is all about comfort and fit. A technically sound shoe. After 15 plus years of amateur trail running this shoe is finally "the one." This is the first and only trail shoe I have used where my feet did not hurt after a run. I have been wearing Cascadia for a few years and I just thought everything was supposed to hurt as I "matured".  I am 6' and 210, 59 yrs old. I happened across these in a web search so I decided to give them a spin. I wear 11.5D dress shoe and I sized up to 12.5. Full review

Thermoball Pullover

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The usual excellent quality and spendy retail pricing from The North Face. Excellent addition to my cool/cold weather wardrobe, but only because I got it on a close-out deal (not a 2nd). This pullover retailed for more than I wanted to spend, but the reviews, coupled with an excellent deal I found elsewhere convinced me to order. I have been wearing it a few weeks and it's been very good, though not great. I give it 4.5 stars based primarily on cost to performance. For a synthetic, it is very lightweight… Full review

Assault 2

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Super lightweight tent that is very liveable, and weighs under 1.5 kgs without the optional vestibule. It's definitely an alpine tent, but still a great versatile choice for bivvying or lightweight trips. I picked up the Assault 2 to replace a MEC TGV 2 that I had purchased. I live in the Canadian Rockies, and do a fair bit of mountaineering, bivying, and winter camping. So far I've used this tent a couple times and as it stands I'm fairly impressed. Getting the tent set up and taking it down always… Full review

Recon

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a versatile high quality pack that will take all the abuse you can throw at it. I don't have enough good things to say about this pack. I use this primarily for my everyday carry needs, but I do intend to test it out on the trail as well. Let's start with the quality of the pack. This pack is very solidly built. All of the zippers are very functional and solid. I wouldn't ask for better clips for the compression straps. They are sturdy and strong.   The pack has a very solid back panel. Full review

Dhaulagiri II GTX

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Not bad at all. In fact I was pretty impressed. I bought these boots literally a couple of days before doing the Gokyo Valley and Everest Base Camp trek. No time to break them in. Almost three solid weeks of very tough trekking. Not a single blister. Not a single problem. Admittedly I avoided getting them soaking wet, but went through a lot of snow without issue. Full review
