SUGOI Firewall 220 Pant review
Written by Karen Nitkin   

Firewall 220 PantSome bicyclists and runners only venture out when the weather is warm, while others gladly brave whipping winds and sub-freezing temps. All-weather athletes know finding a pair of comfortable, wind-resistant pants can be challenging. Many are stiff and bulky, requiring multiple layers because they don't provide much warmth, and trapping in sweat, which can be uncomfortable and even dangerous on cold days.

POC Receptor BUG Helmet review
Written by Steven Horak   

BugThe POC Receptor BUG snow helmet builds off what made the Receptor such a perennial all-season stalwart and tailors it specifically for the slopes. With a double overlapping shell system of PC and ABS (that is, Polycarbonate and Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) coupled with a molded EPS foam liner, the Receptor BUG is designed to withstand the kind of brunt force impacts that are better left unsaid, let alone avoided.

Hi-Tec Sandstone Peak Parka review
Written by Alex Strickland   

Sandstone Peak ParkaRight off, the Sandstone Peak Parka from Hi-Tec checks a lot of boxes. Removable insulated liner. Zip-off hood. Dri-Tec shell for waterproofness. Plus, just the right amount of pockets.

Mountain Hardwear Excursion Trifecta Jacket review
Written by Jason Elliot   

Excursion TrifectaNeapolitan flavored ice cream molds together vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. The three-in-one combination is a flavor overdose for your sweet tooth.

Not as scrumptious as Neapolitan ice cream, a 3-in-1 jacket can help topple an endless afternoon of tasty turns. Mountain Hardwear introduced their 3-in-1, the Excursion Trifecta, this year.

Pop Outerwear Judah Jacket review
Written by Jason Elliot   

JudahPop Outerwear sinks its snowboarding roots in the chic urban backdrop of San Francisco. A city that's better known for its intellectual abundance with Stanford scholars ordering lattes at trendy coffee shops and Silicon Valley industrialists dreaming up the next big high tech marvel.

Helly Hansen Legend Pant review
Written by Steven Horak   

LegendFor over 130 years Helly Hansen has designed apparel to withstand unforgiving Scandinavian winters, so it's no wonder that skiers and snowboarders alike have developed outsized expectations of anything Norway's preeminent outdoor gear manufacturer delivers for the slopes. One can, therefore, understand the brashness behind the naming of the Legend Pant, a supremely well-rounded and inspired ski pant that embodies Helly Hansen's fastidious approach to their creations.

Sherpa Adventure Gear Lithang Pant review
Written by David Nitkin   

LithangIt's hard to fully appreciate a gondola until you need one.

As wind whips and sleet pelts, it's a pretty miserable feeling lowering your backside onto a wet seat, feeling dampness soak into your thighs as you are hauled up a mountain.

The Lithang pant by Sherpa Adventure Gear will end that feeling forever. The Lithang provides all the protection your body's lower half could ask for.

Brooks Nightlife Jacket II review
Written by Whitney Dreier   

nightlife jacket_iiDuring the winter months, many runners find themselves running before or after work...in the dark. Preparing for an early-morning or late-night run requires slightly more thought than a day-time run (Which streets are well-lit? Do you need a headlamp?). But when you're considering how to maximize visibility along your course, remember that you need to be visible, too.

Hestra XCR 3-Finger Gloves review
Written by Jason Elliot   

Hestra XCR 3-FingerGetting hit in your helmet by the overhead ski lift bar by a safety-crazed gaper is annoying. Almost as annoying is not wearing the right gloves or socks, so you are uncomfortably cold and don't enjoy a day of riding.

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.
