Maine Hunting Shoes, 16"

rated 5 of 5 stars Great tall boot that keeps your pants clean and your feet dry. I'm on my second pair. Had the first for decades; Bean replaced them though I would have preferred a repair. Tuck your pants in these boots and your pants stay clean, dry, and tick free [I bug spray the leather uppers] while keeping your feet warm and dry. These boots are light and really only need minimal break in if any. They are uninsulated, but with two pairs of wool socks I've worn them many times snowshoeing to about 20°f. Put… Full review

Bean Boots, 10" Shearling-Lined

rated 3 of 5 stars Comfortable, not as warm as advertised, slippery, don't work like a 10" boot. I've had mine two years. To me they are an excellent two-season [spring/fall] boot and just so so in cold [below ten f] winter temps though I believe they are rated to -20°. I could probably do 0°F in mine if very active but then I'd likely have a different boot on. This all with two pair of wool socks. Why the tongue isn't sewn all the way up the boot is beyond me. This makes stepping in a 6-inch puddle probably impossible… Full review

Mountain Classic Anorak

rated 5 of 5 stars Perfect description. I cross country ski and snowshoe and am old school. I have a North Face from 1978 I "outgrew." There for quite a few years, the only anorak I could find were tactical gear...but now they are back in colors other than coyote and camo and better made. I wear Patagonia AND the LL Bean Primaloft bivys with a hood under these and it is a perfect combination over a base layer and different weights mid layers. I live in MT and temps run from single digits below (my personal limits)… Full review

Weather Challenger 3-in-1 Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Nice jacket. Perfect for western New York winters. I like the jacket but I wish it was a little heavier, but all in all it’s a pretty good jacket. It is one of the better 3-in-1’s on the market. Full review

Microlight Ul 2-Person Backpacking Tent

rated 4 of 5 stars Very lightweight, freestanding tent for two (-ish). This is not for the tall or wide, but as seen in the pics, it fits two Klymit Static V's with about a foot to spare in length. I measured interior head space and get 40". LL Bean's website says 36", so I was happy to have the extra 4" I'm 5'10" (plus an inch or two of hair) and could sit up in the tent with a few inches to spare. My main point of this review is to show the size of the tent. I haven't managed to make it outside yet. The tent packs… Full review
