Arc'teryx Men's Theta AR Jacket
Bought this jacket at Cotwold for £380.00 GBP. In 2 months of ownership I took it in torrential rain for 2 hours. It leaked at the shoulders. Sent back to Arcteryx and shipped back saying "no manufacturing defect". I will be honest in saying that I don't wish to waste more time writing a thorough review. I have lost time and money and Im very disappointed that Arcteryx took so long to return my jacket. They didn't even telephone to clarify the problem. In essence I was hoping to purchase an expensive… Full review
Patagonia Women's Endless Ride Liner Shorts
The Patagonia Women’s Endless Ride Liner Shorts are a straightforward padded liner designed specifically for mountain biking. My personal litmus test when it comes to outdoor gear is whether or not I notice it when I’m out on the trail. I want my gear to fade into the background so I can focus on riding. This liner passes with flying colors. It stays in place, provides unrestricted movement, and vents moisture- keeping me comfortable while my body gets worked (...scraped, bruised) and enjoys… Full review
Patagonia Women's Nine Trails Bike Jersey
The Patagonia women's Nine Trails Bike Jersey is a versatile shirt that keeps me comfortable throughout long days on the trail. It layers well over a tank or short-sleeved tee, and under a wind shirt or other nylon-like outer layer. The ¾ length sleeves are a nice feature that allow me to ride without the cuffs falling down onto my wrists and gloves. Avoid wearing the shirt under a fleece or other grabby material that could cause the sleeves to bunch. Testing Conditions: I tested the Patagonia… Full review
Columbia Men's Titanium Jacket
Great waterproof shell, stood up to 40+ mph driving sleet and snow. It never became wet inside the jacket after four hours in those elements. The Columbia Titanium shell I bought looks brand new. It was just missing a fleece or quilted zip-in jacket, but I looked around for something warmer to zip into the shell if possible because you have to match up the zipper teeth and that's a task unto itself. Even other Columbia fleece jackets I found wouldn't work with that shell until I found a North Face… Full review
Montane Dart Zip-Neck
The Montane Dart Zip-Neck is a long-sleeved synthetic shirt that is an ideal year-round base layer (a short-sleeved tee is also available). It wicks moisture away from the body very quickly, is exceptionally tailored, and protects the skin with a high UPF factor. If you’re looking to start your cold weather kit from skin out, I’d highly recommend it. Long-sleeve Dart Zip Neck on the left, short-sleeve Dart T-Shirt, also reviewed, on the right FIT AND COMFORT The Dart fits exactly as I would… Full review
MontBell Men's Chameece Inner Jacket
I wear this jacket all the time. Great for layering. Full review
Patagonia Women's Better Sweater Jacket
Great jacket for hiking and daily wear. Perfect for chilly fall weather. I love this jacket and wear it often. It is perfect for layering for hiking. I got a large, so there is plenty of room for clothes underneath (I usually get a medium). Fit is nice—not too tight in arms, etc. Very comfortable for everyday use. I also like the pockets.
