Patagonia Women's Nano Puff Pullover
Nice jacket but the labels are itchy and abrasive. Patagonia needs to fix that now in many jackets. Fix the labels in your garments! They are sewn so firmly they cannot be removed and they are extremely abrasive to the neck!! Full review
Quechua Forclaz 100 Convertible Walking Trousers
Ultralight, breathable, quick drying, 'Technical' walking trousers with plenty of pockets and the convenience of zip-off legs. Previously known as "Trek 100 Men's Mountain Trekking zip-off Trousers". I have been using zip-off leg trousers for my holidays, hiking, and camping for several years now and love the convenience of them. My last pair was a pair of North Face zip-offs with cargo pockets. However, I am now a fully-fledged ultralight hiking/camping gear enthusiast so when it came to reducing… Full review
They fit, protect, and look nice. A great all-around set of sunglasses Revant F1L Sunglasses I used to think that sunglasses were all pretty much only about choosing a style that you liked. After a time as a brand ambassador for a different sunglass company (not Revant) I learned that there is so much more to them other than just looking cool. It's bright up here (Mt. Adams, 12,000-ish feet) Why I need sunglasses: A story: On Mount Baker, Jeremy, Rudy and I started climbing at 1:00 a.m. and at dawn… Full review
Mountain Hardwear Exposure Parka
Roll over Gore-Tex. Mountain Hardwear's DryQ Elite is by far the most breathable waterproof 3-layer fabric hands down. Fully lined and with room for my heaviest hooded down jacket under I can reach overhead with no ride up of the sleeves and the hem overlaps my pant's waistband. With arms at my side the hem in front breaks midway between crotch and waistband and the drop of the back is near 2" lower, so rain drips past. I wear size small in all MH apparel and bought the small Exposure. The designer's… Full review
Mountain Hardwear Docklands Reversible Beanie
100% Merino wool is the SHIZ!!! Comfort across a wide range of temperatures, merino wool is my first choice for what's next to my skin—caps, sweaters and base layers. Mountain Hardwear is my favorite apparel line and I've many, from down jackets to pants, shirts, and sweaters to prove it. Full review
Rab Men's Interval Tee
Ultralight (half the weight of a typical cotton t-shirt), highly breathable, comfortable, wicking material...keeps you cool and dry on very hot days or when you are running, training, or working hard. Dries in a flash, looks great, doesn't smell, moves with your body, and saves a lot of weight in your pack. I have three Rab Interval Tees—one in "Ebony", one in "Ink", and one in "Evergreen", all in Medium, which is the perfect size for me. Their weights vary...one is 79g, one is 80g and the other… Full review
Dickies Tough Max Flex Duck Pants
A tough dual purpose pant for under $30. Tough yet flexible, wear for work or play. I'm always on the lookout for dual purpose clothing, something you can use for work or play. Dickies, long known for great workwear, have really come up with some great new fabrics that work really well for hiking and backpacking. I received a pair of Dickies FLEX Regular Fit Straight Leg Tough Max Duck 5-Pocket Pants in the spring and started taking them on hiking days while the temperatures were still fairly… Full review
