EX Light Down Anorak

rated 4 of 5 stars This ultra-lightweight down jacket is a great mid-layer for backpacking and thru-hiking, filling the niche of a three-season camp “puffy”. It should be thought of more like a sweater or hooded sweatshirt rather than a jacket, as it trades off many typical jacket features for its svelte weight and compressibility. Specs Weight: 5.25 oz in a size XS (my measurement) Gender: Men’s (or unisex, because there is no women’s version) Insulation: 900 fill power down (2.3 oz of fill) Fabric: 7 denier… Full review

Frost Smoke Parka

rated 5 of 5 stars Super warm, very light, and durable. Great as a top layer on a super cold day, around a campfire, and as part of a sleeping system. I'd highly recommend it to serious backpackers, or anyone who wants a high quality puffy for under $200. 10/10 would buy again. This is a great puffy for light or heavy outdoor use. It works well for chilly dessert nights, on freezing mornings at altitude, and for hanging our around at meal times. Get ready to de-layer quickly when you start moving. Fit - Comfortable… Full review

U.L. Spiral Down Hugger #1

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Tucking into this bag is akin to snuggling up to a cloud. The -15° rating is no lie, and it easily packs down smaller than a milk jug. This is a super lofty bag with nicely baffled zippers and entrance and a soft, brushed material that has held up to the few snags I've managed to put it through over the years. The stretch of the spiral baffles is a plus for us fetal sleepers, or even sitting cross legged. Everyone I've shared my tent with has been jealous of its obvious coziness and I can sleep… Full review

Chameece Inner Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A very nice lightweight fleece garment. I'm a big fan of lightweight fleece garments. They breathe well, are warm (even damp), dry quickly (can be wrung out if necessary), and are relatively inexpensive. When I'm on the move and need a mid-layer to warm up, it's extremely tough to beat a lightweight fleece—especially in damp conditions. The Montbell Chameece Jacket is one of the lightest fleece jackets I've found—8.6 oz in Men's Large. Full zip w/ one zipped upper chest pocket. You can save… Full review
