Exposure Parka

rated 5 of 5 stars Roll over Gore-Tex. Mountain Hardwear's DryQ Elite is by far the most breathable waterproof 3-layer fabric hands down. Fully lined and with room for my heaviest hooded down jacket under I can reach overhead with no ride up of the sleeves and the hem overlaps my pant's waistband. With arms at my side the hem in front breaks midway between crotch and waistband and the drop of the back is near 2" lower, so rain drips past. I wear size small in all MH apparel and bought the small Exposure. The designer's… Full review

Docklands Reversible Beanie

rated 5 of 5 stars 100% Merino wool is the SHIZ!!! Comfort across a wide range of temperatures, merino wool is my first choice for what's next to my skin—caps, sweaters and base layers.

Regarding the fit though, the non-hooded jacket is a snug fit on the forearms and torso, so great to wear with… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Superb. If you can find a used one, buy it. I've been using this for motorcycle touring for three years now having bought a secondhand one at a high, but reasonable price. Has coped flawlessly in all weather. Used examples now hard to come by, as owners love them and keep hold of them. Newer designs from MSR, Macpac, TNF etc are lighter, but in my opinion not as strong.  If you can find one, if you don't mind side entry, if absolute featherweight isn't an issue (it's still very light and compact),… Full review
