Bora AR 50

rated 5 of 5 stars The Bora AR pack is a lightweight, water resistant, very comfortable pack for about 30-45 pounds. I have hiked many miles with external frame packs to soft frame packs, some with no hip belts (shows my age) some with little or no adjustments, some that were agonizing to wear, some that were very comfortable. Arc'teryx is my brand of choice. I have hiked with the older Bora models, the newer Altra and Naos packs and now the newest Bora AR packs . The evolution of Arc'teryx packs (for me at least)… Full review

Altra 75

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Lived out of it for a year. Comfortable and extremely durable. Access is excellent. I lived out of this pack for a year in Morocco, South Africa, Turkey, and Indonesia.  In that time I did long distance hiking (carrying lots of food, water, tent gear) in the Drakensberg Range, the Lycian Way in Turkey, and simple backpacking around Bali and Morocco.  My wife had to get a new backpack after that trip.  I just looked at my Altra and it shows very little wear and is perfectly functional. Amazingly,… Full review

Rho LTW Neck Gaiter

rated 5 of 5 stars A great accessory—soft and warm with all the advantages of Merino wool. Usually when you go for Merino wool you can't go wrong. It's light, soft, wicking, and has great thermal regulation. This product is no different. It's even softer than most Merino wool products I've tested. It's very versatile. You can wear it around your neck, cover your nose and mouth, or even use it as a cap. It delivers great warmth, especially in ratio to its thickness and weight. I'm using it every day during the winter… Full review

Fortrez Hoody

rated 4 of 5 stars Very good lightweight, relatively breathable Polartec Power Stretch gridded fleece with Hardface tech. Has a few excellent features and better than average durability. Waited for the end of season sales before taking the plunge and buying my first one in Autumn (Fall) 2015. I did find the Arc'teryx Fortrez's Athletic 'Trim' fit a little restrictive on my bulky (46in) torso, shoulders and upper arms at first, but Arc’teryx’s anatomical patterning, articulated elbows, gusseted underarms and… Full review

Squamish Hoody

rated 5 of 5 stars A perfect wind jacket. Not sure why it took me so long to get one! Those who have read my reviews before know that I seem to have an obsession with finding the "perfect" jacket. In fact, I have probably reviewed more jackets here, than any other type of clothing. I've been wanting to try this jacket out for some time, and when my REI dividend showed up, and this jacket appeared on the REI outlet page, I took the bait. With wind shells, there tends to be a tradeoff between wind-resistance and breathability. Full review
