Kuiu Yukon Gaiters

Great quality ruined by a bad top strap design. If you are walking in any kind of slash where debris can hit the top strap I would not recommend. The straps are pinched down with a lever type holder which comes undone every 20 steps or so—major flaw major piss off for $150. Full review

Kora Shola 230 Esker Hat

Beanie whose main unique feature is that it is made out of 100 percent yak wool. Very fine knit wool is less coarse than either of my merino wool beanies. Double layer knit wool cap fits snugly, is low profile, provides nice warmth, and wicks moisture really well. A very nice option for being active in cooler weather. After a discussion on Trailspace about Kora, a company that sells layers and other clothing made of yak wool, I decided to try out this hat. Frankly, I was hesitant about buying one… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Men's Super/DS StretchDown Hooded Down Jacket

Comfortable lightweight and seems to keep me warm (California). Styling is unique. Stretch fabric is a must have! Fits smaller—I wear small, medium fits me nicely. Lots of favorable reviews out there. I have not used the jacket yet for outdoor activities. Just work and errands because I don’t want to take it off.  :) I have read numerous reviews stating it has great durability and warmth. And it seems to. Read very few negative comments other than the hood size and adjustment (lack of). I am… Full review

Regatta Andreson Lightweight Insulated Hybrid Jacket

Regatta's Andreson Hybrid Jacket is a ridiculously inexpensive garment. The price-warmth ration can’t be beat. While The Trek is blogging about $250 synthetic jackets, I have found this $35 jacket to be an exceptional value (and as warm as the high-end brands). The saying goes you can have two of three things in hiking equipment: Price, Weight, and Quality. Regatta’s Andreson Hybrid Jacket nails the first two, and I’m hoping it might prove the third over time.  When my jacket arrived from… Full review

Norse Projects Lambswool Beanie

A simple stylish hat made from natural fibres which provide very effective, if somewhat itchy, insulation on cold days. I was a bit reluctant to buy a beanie made from lambswool as I remember from my days in the Fire and Rescue Service that wool is very itchy. However, in my determination to buy a garment made from natural fibres as opposed to oil-based ones I thought I'd take the risk. The hat is a good fit for me and l like the style. I mainly wear it with the bottom folded over but in milder… Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Enigma Half Zip

The Enigma Half Zip is a base layer that places wicking moisture and drying quickly at a premium. That's a little unusual for a shirt that's partially made of merino wool, but in this case, the blend is 88% synthetic, 12% wool. Choose this shirt for high-sweat, high output activities; consider a thicker/heavier base layer for bitter cold. The relatively light fabric and great moisture management makes this an attractive layer year-round until it's so warm that you're better off in short sleeves. Full review

Black Diamond MidWeight WoolTech Gloves

I liked the idea of midweight liners to do small camp tasks in and to use while skinning. I’m just not sure these are burly enough for camp tasks or thin enough to be used as glove liners. The leather palm probably temped me to be too rough on them. The search for the perfect glove continues... If you're interested in gloves that aren't made from plastic you might want to check out these.  The majority of these gloves is made from renewable materials such as goat leather and wool.  Very little… Full review
