Swiftwick Pursuit Four Sock
Swiftwick is as good as it gets for scent-free, blister-free comfort, wicking, and durability. I have owned Swiftwick socks of one variety or another for five or so years now. I've worn them up and down several Cascades Volcanoes and they are now my go-to light hiking and running socks. Test Conditions: I received two almost identical sets of Swiftwick socks about four months ago and I have included them in all my fitness, trail runs, gym workouts and hikes in the hills. It's been long-pants season… Full review
Columbia Horizons Pine Interchange Jacket
Nice coat for street and trail. In all I give the Horizons Pine a 4 out of 5; at under 200$ CAD It was a great buy IMO. Just note, I am not the most active person; I hike and walk regularly and I hope to increase my activities, and intensity, as I get into shape. As of now my activity is medium duration at low intensity. With that said higher activity people, or lower, may have different results. Pros: I say very water repellent and not waterproof because I can see where the fabric is absorbing… Full review
Marmot Men's Ether DriClime Jacket
Moisture Management. I agree with the points in the other review. I wear the Ether full time next to my skin alone when on the trail hiking/backpacking in CO and WY in the 20°F to 65°F range. So many conditions like wind, rain, sleet, grapple, snow flurries can happen at my typical altitude range of 8k to 11k anytime. In the warmer temps I sweat a bit, but this manages it nicely by drying quickly. So I just lower the front zip and keep it on. Full review
Eddie Bauer Guide Pro Convertible Pants
Good all around convertible pant. Fabric stretches, fit is very good (lots of sizes), like this pant. These pants are great. Very versatile whether as full pants or as shorts with the legs zipped off. I wore them every day during recent a three-week rafting trip down the Grand Canyon. Whether in the raft, in the water, or during day hikes the pants performed very well. When wet they dried quickly. Stretchy fabric was a strong asset, whether in shorts mode or when lower pant legs were zipped on. Full review
Eddie Bauer Men's First Ascent Peak XV Down Jacket
An exceptional buy WHEN PURCHASED ON A SALE. Several good design features, but lacking a robust inside zipper baffle. I wanted a fully baffled expedition level parka that was helmet compatible so I could use my ski helmet at alpine resorts on very cold days. The fit was very good for me, a 5'10" 185 lb. male. Construction quality is top notch as are the materials. The outer shell is a Cordura brand with a small diamond pattern woven in and it is quite tough from my experience catching it on a broken… Full review
Royal Robbins Men's Merinolux Flannel Long Sleeve Shirt
The Royal Robbins Merinolux Flannel Long Sleeve Shirt is a decent option for cool to cold weather hiking. People who like the look of a flannel shirt and want to avoid cotton will approve. So will hikers who crave high durability. Relatively low amounts of merino wool limit the shirt's temperature range: it's 46% Sorona polyester, 43% polyester, and 11% merino wool. Claims that the shirt has "superior softness" aren't accurate. INTRODUCTION Royal Robbins claims that its Merinolux Flannel Long Sleeve… Full review
World Wide Sportsman Gulf Breeze Convertible Pants
Competitive, value-priced convertible pants play hard and stand up to the activity. Options help you meet the demand of the day: long pant, capri, or shorts. Several years ago, I went on a pretty exhaustive search for women's zip-off hiking pants that would fit two criteria: my size 18 body and my tight budget. Besides being pricey, the Columbia hiking pants just did not fit me, among several other top brand pants. I finally stumbled onto the World Wide Sportsman brand pants at Bass Pro Shops. I… Full review
