Patagonia Men's Retro Pile Vest

A versatile insulator. From cutting the chill on a spring day to augmenting core warmth on really cold ones, this soft, comfortable fleece does the job. Don't expect it to stop any wind, as even a mild breeze runs right through this, unless you wear it under a shell. Brand new, it sheds until you wash or tumble dry it, and durability/pilling could be a longer-term issue. OVERVIEW I had been eyeing the Retro Pile Jacket when I received this as a gift. Mine is size XL and weighs 14.4 ounces on an… Full review

Toad&Co Swifty Trail Skirt

Men's or women's lightweight, comfortable walking skirt. The Swifty Trail Skirt is an excellent man's or woman's walking, hiking, and backpacking skirt. Size large weighs 136g (4-3/4 oz). Length on 17-1/2" front, and 18" back. I like the front hand pockets, which securely hold an iPhone 10sMax. While it lacks a drawstring, to snug it for a man's hips, an elastic belt can hold it in place by folding the waistband over the belt. The skirt's material is light, soft, and dries quickly.  Design allows… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Men's StretchDown DS Hooded Jacket

I don't recommend this jacket for hiking or backpacking. Warm jacket, heavy, and bulky without hood cinch. I prefer my winter hiking gear/clothing to have some color, jackets and mid layers to be on the bright side. This jacket stands out and looks good but it is not practical for hiking/camping in the mountains. It is just way too bulky. It is very warm with very deep pockets for your hands and cell phone. I thought about trying it above treeline but with no cinch cord for the hood, it would blow… Full review

Kari Traa Rose Long Sleeve

The Kari Traa Rose Longsleeve is a 100 percent merino base layer that is comfortable, warm, and durable. It's thin enough to layer without restricting movement, and incorporates a range of colors and sizes to appeal to a variety of adventurous ladies! Just be prepared to size up as this base layer runs SMALL! Testing Conditions: I tested the Kari Traa Rose Longsleeve from December 2018 to December 2019 as a member of the Trailspace Review Corps. Testing conditions ranged from -25 to 20 degrees… Full review

Eddie Bauer First Ascent Peak XV Parka

A full featured alpine/expedition parka advertised good to -30° F. At its $249 sale price this parka was a great value from its $499 MSRP.  I bought this parka both for bitter cold alpine skiing and as a "camp parka" when winter camping. The size large fits me well at 190 lbs, 5' 10" tall. MATERIALS: It compares most closely with Patagonia's Fitz Roy alpine parka both in design and down fill quality. the PEAK XV Parka will not pack quite as small as the Fitzroy  and other similar alpine parkas… Full review

Patagonia Men's Nano Puff Bivy Pullover

Most importantly it is a pullover, I simply prefer the pullover style for comfort and ease of wearing. I paid full price in New York while on holiday as my big down parka was simply too warm for a New York winter. Also I thought it might make a suitable LW midlayer for an Alaskan winter trip that has now been cancelled. I keep it in my day pack for ski touring in Australia's High Plains as a "just in case layer." Upside is the light weight and compactness, the downside is that 60GSM is not warm… Full review
