Arc'teryx Men's Thorium AR Hoody
A very durable, exceptionally warm hoody that excels in the right conditions. One of the perks of your friends knowing you like to walk in the dirt is gift cards. I'm not prone to dropping 300 bucks on a jacket but having moved to the mountains and wanting a piece I could wear both on the trail (in the right conditions) and day to day I pulled the trigger on the Arc'teryx Thorium AR. (On sale) Score. I own a couple of other Arc'teryx pieces and so I assumed the quality, durability and fit would… Full review
Montane Alpha Balance Jacket
A mix of a lightweight, hardwearing, stretch fleece and breathable wind resistant Polartec Alpha Direct. The placement of the Alpha fabric makes it perfect for use with a backpack. Fabric Performance This jacket is the perfect companion for a backpack trek/hike. The Polartec Alpha Direct fabric provides some weather and abrasion protection for the most exposed areas. The surface fabric covering the Alpha insulation has some PU mixed into it, which seems to add some durable water repellency. The… Full review
Omni-Wool Men's Midweight Pant
These were comfortable. They wash well. The size was correct. I would recommend these for anyone that requires a stable undergarment. These were very comfortable. They did not hike up the leg or slide down from the waist. As a police officer out in the cold these kept me warm from the elements and with the dependability that they will stay in place. They have washed well and kept their shape through multiple washings. They seem well made and durable. I do not live in so cold a region to evaluate… Full review
Ombraz Classics Armless Sunglasses
The Ombraz armless sunglasses are—without competition—the best pair of shades I’ve worn. And I have owned a lot of shades, because an active lifestyle tends to destroy sunglasses. Sunglasses can be frustrating, because my active lifestyle tends to destroy sunglasses. They’ve fallen off my face on runs and hikes; I’ve lost countless pairs in lakes and rivers (even while wearing Croakies). I’ve never dared to take a pair of sunglasses climbing for fear of watching them plummet to their… Full review
Baleaf Short Sleeve Sun Protection Rashguard Swim Shirt UPF 50+
This shirt is a good product at a fair price for outdoor use in sunny conditions. Non-aggressive seams allows for comfortable backpacking and the SPF rating is great for a sunny day at the beach or in the canoe. This shirt fits well and is comfortable when performing repetitive movements or causing body friction with the shirt. It wicks moisture and dries quickly to keep you cool and rash free. Full review
The North Face Men's Diameter Down Hybrid Jacket
Jacket ripped first time skiing with no significant falls. Warranty process non-existent. Buyer beware. Bought the North Face Diameter Down jacket while traveling through Paris. First problem arose when I wanted to swap sizes, only to be told you can't swap items between different North Face stores. Thereafter, took the jacket out skiing/snowboarding for the first time two weeks later and it ripped without any significant falls. Jacket is now completely useless. North Face customer care and warranty… Full review
Helly Hansen Women's Daybreaker Fleece Jacket
High quality fleece that fits like a glove and does exactly what you want it to. It also clings to fuzz, dog fur, and scent. This is a high-quality fleece from HH, and although it's a basic piece it does exactly what you want it to. It's thin yet warm, layers great over a base layer and under another insulating layer, and dries quickly. I've used it for a full skiing season as a mid-weight base layer and around town on wet, 40-60 degree days under a shell. It fits like a glove and has a quality… Full review
