Summit Gloves

rated 4 of 5 stars The Eastern Mountain Sports Summit Gloves are warm, waterproof gloves suitable for all outdoor winter activities. Primaloft Silver insulation keeps your hands warm, and leather palms with synthetic suede reinforcements give durability. Note: The Summit Glove has been renamed Ascent Summit.  I’ve always found EMS gear to be very serviceable and very reasonably priced, so when I needed a new pair of winter gloves the local store was my first stop. The Summit is EMS’s warmest glove, and since… Full review

Velocity 2 Tent

rated 5 of 5 stars A very spacious, lightweight tent. This review is for the current updated version, different from what is pictured. I am going on two years of ownership with this tent and ended up purchasing the 2P after being extremely impressed with the 1P version. Fast forward a little while and I have sold the 1P, and now use the EMS Velocity 2 for everything. Backpacking, motorcycle camping, and car camping, spring, summer, and fall, this tent is my go-to. Six interior pockets—not including the removable… Full review

Rampart Soft Shell Gloves

rated 3 of 5 stars A basic, lightweight soft shell glove for activities in milder winter temperatures. A synthetic suede palm reinforcement helps protect from wear from pole or shovel handles. Patches on the index finger tips give touchscreen compatibility. I bought these because my other softshell gloves (Seirus Windstopper Cyclone) were too warm, and the pile lining would get wet with sweat. EMS had them for 50% off, which was a nice bonus. The glove is very basic, without fancy features. There's no lining so you… Full review

Feather Pack 800 Hooded

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Nice jacket, solid construction, good fill on the down. Got mine on sale on a Black Friday doorbuster so the price can't be beat. Large inside vest pocket for self packing is nice for keeping largish items warm — I like to go out and get a burger at Five Guys when walking my dog and then take it home for dinner (dog and burger). Also has a drawstring to keep air seal around waist/hips. I could quibble about lack of a drawstring on the hood, but many jacket doesn't have that either. Haven't yet… Full review

Velocity 2 Tent

rated 3.5 of 5 stars I'm 5'2" and I've enjoyed this tent. Everyone I hand it to exclaims how light it is and I've had no problem carrying it for backpacking. I will admit it is small and you have to be very comfortable with the people you share it with, but the benefit of that is it stays warm easily. My 6'4" boyfriend used it once and basically said never again. I've never had a problem with the zippers (and they glow in the dark which is cool). Setup: Super easy. One pole and you just have to pop it into all the spots. Full review
