Ibex Zepher 3/4 John review
Written by Jason Elliot   

Zepher JohnThe soft feel of merino makes you doubt that it's wool. Far gone are the days that wool was scratchy and irritating to your skin. And forget even considering wearing wool underwear. Merino has changed how wool is used in clothing.

Ibex has been designing merino clothing since the late 1990's. The Zepher 3/4 Johns is a base layer that's designed to come to the bottom of the calf.

Salomon Whisper Skirt review
Written by Elizabeth O. Hurst   

Salomon WhisperWhen I'm preparing for everything involved in a run —the elements, the sweating, the terrain, the burn — looking cute is the farthest thing from my mind. Running around in the Salomon Whisper, though, has made me appreciate how feeling cute improves my aerobic motivation.

Icebreaker Commute Full-Zip Jersey review
Written by Andrew Horton   

Commute_Full-Zip_Jersey_ThumbEver get that awkward feeling when you commute on your bike to the office, just to have everyone stare at your Lycra-laden getup? It's embarrassing. If the day-long polyester chafe wasn't uncomfortable enough, the strange looks and snickers from your co-workers will be.

Primal Wear T-11 Cycling Jersey and Short review
Written by Karen Nitkin   

Primal Wear T-11 Cycling JerseyNobody wants to feel sweaty and uncomfortable after a bike ride, even in hot weather. Nobody wants to spend hours riding on a chamois that seems to get flatter over time. And nobody wants their movement restricted while they are peddling.

Fortunately, the folks at Primal Wear are on it.

Dahlgren Footwear Running Ankle, Brooks Infiniti Quarter and Lorpen Tri-Layer Trail Light Socks review
Written by Jason Elliot   

Dahlgren Footwear Running AnkleDahlgren Footwear Running AnkleRunning socks can be about as disposable as a diaper. Your road and trail runs abuse the material and stitching that your socks are designed with. Miles and miles of abuse leaves a pair stretched, strained and lifeless.

Columbia Sportswear Midweight Baselayers review
Written by Amy Jurries   

Columbia Midweight BaselayerBaselayers are not typically associated with innovation. It seems little can be done to innovate a polyester or wool baselayer.

Columbia Sportswear is proving the notion wrong by pulling baselayers out of a stagnant rut and fortifying tops and bottoms with Omni-Heat Thermal Reflective technology. A new line of baselayers for Fall 2011.

Icebreaker GT 260 Pursuit Zip Top & Legging review
Written by Andrew Horton   

Icebreaker GT 260 Pursuit ZipOn its Web site, Icebreaker asks customers, “Could this be the perfect base layer?” Could the Icebreaker GT 260 Pursuit base layer, complete with a long-sleeve Pursuit zip top and leggings, be the missing link for athletes who cannot and will not be slowed by snow, sleet, wind, or freezing rain?

PolarMax Mountain Skins review
Written by Alex Strickland   
PolarMax Mountain Skins Topimages/PolarMaxIt's easy to think all base layers are created equal when suiting up in the morning, but nothing can send a day in the mountains south faster that a binding, soggy base that leaves you cold and miserable. When the mercury is plunging, PolarMax's warmest, highest-performance base layer – Mountain Skins – provide immense insulation in a compact, sleek package that feels like a second skin.

Gramicci Ranger Crew and Hi-Tec Salt Creek Long Sleeve Shirts review
Written by Jason Elliot   
Ranger_Crew_Thumbimage/GramicciThe trees are bare and the leaves that hung from the branches are now covering the ground. And the leafy groundcover is not green. It's a multicolored combo of yellows, oranges, browns and reds.

Autumn is in full effect and the coloring of the season is brilliant and the weather brings a brisk feel that smacks you. Don't forget to grab a cozy long sleeve shirt before you run out the door on your next hike or to just visit the grocery store.

Gramicci Ranger Crew

Gramicci has been creating clothing for everyday life since the early 1980's and their environmentally sensitive approach can't be overlooked. Gramicci's environmental commitment is seen in each garments design and even down to the tags on the clothing.
