Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

Definitely a scam...just normal uncomfortable socks. Definitely a scam. Bought them on supersockcompany.com They are not Swiss, but Chinese. Supersock has terrible customer care. Don't buy because that have "satisfaction guaranteed". They won't answer and won't give money back. They are not durable or tough...just normal uncomfortable socks. Don't trust supersockcompany.

Smartwool Merino Sport 150 Brief

Super comfortable undies, which will help you stay sweet smelling for days, with no chafing. Yeah, I'm reviewing underwear. Being a big Merino fan, I decided it was time to take the final step towards full commitment, by going right down to the basics. I decided to give these a try.   Fit: The overall fit is good. I'd read a couple of reviews criticizing the extra wide waistband, but in my opinion, it makes them much more stable and keeps them in place better than other briefs I've used. I like… Full review

Patagonia Better Sweater Rib Knit 1/4-Zip

Polyester fleece with a soft fleecy interior and a sweater-knit exterior. Heavier and less breathable than a comparable technical fleece like Patagonia's R2; not what I would think of as a great technical mid-layer fleece. More a heavy sweater for colder weather. Looks great—love the heathered color and rib knit. In fairness, this is not generally the kind of fleece I gravitate toward for harder outdoor activities. There are better choices for wicking moisture, warmth-to-weight ratio, technical… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Yumalino Pant

These are a lightweight winter pant that move with you and keep the chill away. These pants are my go-to for 95 percent of my winter activities. I’ve worn them for winter trail runs, skiing (Alpine and Nordic), snowshoeing, skating, snowball fights, and casual walks. They simply deliver. This will be my third winter with them and their durability continues to impress me. The only tear in one of them was from a dog bite—considering I’ve worn them in brush, on chairlifts with sharp edges, wearing… Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Equinox Convert Pants

Light, comfortable, and moderately fast drying pants for on trail or off. The OR Equinox Convert Pants are durable enough to handle real world abuse, yet comfortable enough to wear around the house. Hamlin summit at Baxter State Park with Turner Mtn and Katahdin Lake in the distance. The Outdoor Research Equinox Convert pants showed up on the old Massdrop site this spring at a pretty good price, so I grabbed a couple of pair. These pants have been used extensively, on trail and off, since the day… Full review

Looking for a durable, seriously warm, water resistant down jacket and weight isn't a deal-breaker? Rab’s Batura II may just fit the bill. Bought the Batura II in size XL (nearly 480g fill-weight) in the Black colour with Horizon (Red) details for planned autumn/winter sub-polar and mountain expeditions.

Inov-8 All Terrain Gaiter

The Inov-8 All Terrain Gaiter is an accessory that is designed to keep debris from entering footwear at the ankle. This product is ideal for hikers that are in an environment where dust, dirt, gravel, etc. easily gets into footwear. These gaiters function best with Inov-8 products that have proprietary hook pockets, but also can work universally with most low-top and mid-ankle footwear. Inov-8 products are rapidly catching on in the USA, and for good reason. With superior design being a necessity… Full review
