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

Outdoor Research Enigma Boxer Briefs

Close-fitting as a boxer brief intended for active use should be, the Enigma Boxer Briefs feel good, wick extremely well, and appear to be durable. This is mostly-nylon with 12 percent merino wool. It's quite stretchy and performs more like nylon than wool. Though the fabric is thin, it seems like it should last. Mixing in wool helps blunt the odor factor, too. HOW THEY FIT The Enigma Boxer Brief is a relatively short (6 1/2 inch inseam) and stretchy boxer made from the same material as Outdoor… Full review

Craghoppers Roag Softshell Jacket

Similar to a Buffalo Windcheater Jacket, the fibre pile inner lining provides warmth in colder temperatures even when wearing just a base layer or directly against the skin. The outer shell offers good protection against the wind and will keep all but the worst rain out. Works well even when wet. This is similar in principle to a Buffalo Designs Windcheater Jacket, but significantly cheaper, which suits my Forest School budget. I have worn this since the beginning of the new year during chillier… Full review

Helly Hansen HH Dry Stripe Crew

The garment is advertised as a technical base layer that's made with 100% HH LIFA fabric (which is modified polypropylene). I've been wearing this base layer for about eight months now and I can easily say that it's a high-quality one and I'm happy with my purchase. I've used this base layer during hiking trips in the mountain (summer; elevation from 400 to 1800+ m a.s.l.) as well as for town. Fit & Comfort I ordered size XXL as I wasn't sure if I need XL or XXL. Initially, I thought that it's… Full review
