Mountain Equipment Vega Jacket
Decent alpine ascending jacket, but not very warm when sitting in camp. This is my first serious down jacket and I have no experience prior to that. I'm expecting a very warm jacket and I feel it's kind of thin when I receive it in mail. The fit is snug on me. I'm 5'6" and 140 lbs; size small is about the right size for me. Sleeve length is a bit long but the velcro cuffs work well. The hood is huge and it's helmet compatible, I just wish it's smaller. Total windproof and you feel full protection… Full review
RailRiders Women's Adventure Top
Can't say enough about this shirt. Its UV protection and comfortable, lightweight, and quick drying fabric make this an awesome choice for activities in a variety of climates. Fit & Comfort: I love this shirt! Does it make you look like a pilgrim? Yes, but's its a great shirt nonetheless. It is lightweight, comfortable and it dries quickly—making it ideal for multi-day trips in the backcountry. The fabric will get stiff as sweat dries, but that's to be expected and nothing a quick rinse… Full review
Marmot Expedition Mitt
Product is good. Runs way large. Customer service is non-existent in trying to exchange. Purchased the gloves for winter photography. I usually wear XL mittens, so that’s what I ordered. Turns out the mitts run way large. Several attempts via email and telephone to contact customer service were fruitless. After trying for two weeks, I’ve given up and am left just sharing a review. The mitts are very good and if you can get them from someone reputable I would encourage you too. Do NOT purchase… Full review
Arc'teryx Rho LTW Neck Gaiter
A very soft, wool neck gaiter that take up very little room in my pack. I find myself wearing this in many circumstances (biking, hiking, camping, hunting, walking to work even) during the colder winter months. Conditions:I’ve used the Arc’Teryx Rho LTW Neck Gaiter for three years now, mostly in the wintertime, in temps ranging from -20°F to 35°F (-29°C to 2°C). I’ve worn it hiking, camping, hunting, biking, and for everyday uses when the weather calls for it. Materials and Size:Built… Full review
Eddie Bauer First Ascent Guide Gloves
A very good winter glove for all but the coldest weather. A nice combination of warmth and freedom of movement. Very nice leather palms. Not waterproof, and leather needs to be treated periodically. Also, no gauntlet or leashes. For me, this is the glove that bridges between cold (30 degrees) and very cold (zero degrees) for most pursuits. The gloves are insulated with Primaloft, with twice as much insulation on the back of the hands as the palm. Regular price $129; purchased at one of their… Full review
Sorel Caribou Parka
It’s a beautiful warm coat that stands out from other parkas. People always comment on how nice the coat is. I have worn it when the temperature was 30 degrees beneath freezing and windy and felt very comfortable in this coat. It does run large, but I believe the quality and warmth outweigh the bulky size. It’s not my everyday coat, but is my wear when it’s REALLY cold coat! If you are lucky enough to find one you better snatch it up!! Owning this coat makes me want to travel to a colder climate… Full review
L.L.Bean Men's Mountain Classic Anorak
Perfect description. I cross country ski and snowshoe and am old school. I have a North Face from 1978 I "outgrew." There for quite a few years, the only anorak I could find were tactical gear...but now they are back in colors other than coyote and camo and better made. I wear Patagonia AND the LL Bean Primaloft bivys with a hood under these and it is a perfect combination over a base layer and different weights mid layers. I live in MT and temps run from single digits below (my personal limits)… Full review
