Showers Pass Basecamp Merino Hoodie

The Showers Pass Basecamp Merino Hoodie is a terrific outdoor companion to anyone who values high-quality activewear made from natural fibers. The midweight, wool hoodie is great at moderating temperatures and resisting odors, while providing you with an eye-catching, cozy mid-layer. It's also a versatile piece for year-round performance—as a nighttime layer around a summer campfire, as a hiking layer in cool temps, or as part of a system of winter layers.

Ibex 24 Hour Short Sleeve Crew

Ibex's 24 Hour all-merino wool crew has all the benefits of sustainable, natural construction paired with excellent design. The light/medium weight short-sleeve top is designed for both casual use and as a next-to-skin layer for active outdoor activities such as hiking in cold to warm temperatures. Initial testing has shown that although not ideal for hot temperatures, this crew is well suited for all other temperature ranges. The world’s opinion isn’t objective. On the outside, gear companies… Full review

Royal Robbins Bug Barrier Tech Travel Long Sleeve II

A lightweight long sleeve shirt treated with Insectshield, a form of permethrin, to keep bugs at bay. This is a technical shirt that allows great freedom of movement and has a very forgiving fit. Don’t look to this shirt to provide much insulation or to wick moisture. It’s also very lightweight and dries fairly quickly, so it’s good for warmer weather and harder climbs, as well as for travel.   Hiking in the White Mountains. I worked hard to get to this point, notable that the sun and wind… Full review

Elegear Arc-Chill Cooling Moisture Wicking Shirt

Breathable synthetic tee for general wear, exercise, hiking, etc.           As a retired fellow I pretty much live in tee shirts. I maintain an inventory of perhaps 30, out of which I tend to rotate through two or three until they rot. I've generally favored cotton, except, of course, not for backpacking. Early synthetics I have are scratchy, stinky and hot. Newer iterations are much improved. My most recent is Elegear's Arc-Chill Cooling T-Shirt, which the vendor asked if I would sample and… Full review

The Original Bug Shirt Elite Edition

Complete protection against biting insects from waist and wrists on up, with zippered access to the face and good ventilation for comfort in warm-ish weather. Worth its weight in DEET! “I fart in your general direction!” – a well known faux-French taunt in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, may also be directed toward mosquitos when sufficiently protected against them. There are times when no amount of insect repellent will keep the bugs away. Mosquitos will bite through head hair or a couple… Full review

Wuru Merino Lightweight Hoodie

Wuru's Lightweight Hoodie brings their Nuyarn performance wool, a merino nylon blend, into a hooded base layer. Worn alone it has a UPF rating of 40, but is super comfortable paired with other layers in the cold. The hood provides bonus protection from bugs or snow. True four-season gear.   . The Wuru Lightweight Hoodie is made with an eye for warmer weather use as a trail shirt, but when the chance came up to test it this winter I was eager to see how it did as a base layer. As you can see from… Full review

Arctic Lynx Maternity Activewear Midweight T-shirt

This shirt is super flattering, comfortable, functional, and perfect for all types of physical activity throughout pregnancy. It’s long enough that it won’t ride up or expose the back or belly, and is designed to expand with you as your baby develops and grows. The fabric is flattering and wicks moisture. This product is best for physical activity in moderate temperatures, such as jogging, hiking, yardwork, Pilates, barre, etc. I would recommend it for all pregnant mothers that want to stay… Full review
