Talus ColdAvenger Expedition Balaclava review
Written by Jason Elliot   

Talus ColdAvenger Expedition BalaclavaDonning the Talus ColdAvenger Expedition Balaclava may cause small children and women to run in fear from you. Others will mumble under their breath that you look like a cross between Hannibal Lecter and Darth Vader.

Canada Goose HyBridge Jacket review
Written by Jason Elliot   

Canada Goose HyBridge Hoody"I can't put my arms down!"

The line spoken by Ralphie's little brother in A Christmas Story was because of his obnoxiously thick winter jacket.

Puffy down-filled jackets still are cozy and have a place if you are a sled dog captain in the Arctic Circle. Fabric technology has evolved, and softshell materials are warmer than they once were.

Mountain Hardwear Echidna Gloves review
Written by Sarah Klingler   

Mountain Hardwear Echidnaimages/Mountain HardwearFinding versatile and durable women's ski gloves is not done with ease. Settling with a men's ski glove with their bulky or "off" fit will not suffice. The Mountain Hardwear Echidna, a women-specific glove for snow bunnies, can tackle whatever your need to achieve in the winter, from cross-country skiing to wintery hiking to scraping ice off your car before a trip to the spa.

Klymit Double Diamond Kinetic Vest review
Written by Jason Elliot   

Klymit Double Diamond Kinetic Vestimages/KlymitLike something you would see in a James Cameron sci-fi megahit, The Klymit Double Diamond Kinteic Vest will make you stupidly gawk for a few extra seconds the first time it's seen.

The Kinetic Vest does look strangely different – almost like a chic vest that a wannabe outdoorsman would wear to garner attention. The Kinetic Vest shows its more function than a trendy new fashion look.

Hi-Tec Sand Creek Jacket review
Written by Jason Elliot   
Hi-Tec Sand Creek Shellimages/Hi-TecBig Sandy Creek in West Virginia is often overlooked for whitewater paddling. Nearby are the Youghiogheny, New, Gulley, and Cheat Rivers. Whitewater outfitters focus their attention on Big Sandy Creek's neighbors. The challenge of the Big Spat and Wonder Falls will test the most technically trained kayaker.

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.

Mountain Khakis Alpine Utility Pant review
Written by Jason Elliot   
Mountain Khakis Alpine Utility Pantsimages/Mountain KhakisA guy into DIY projects will spend more time wrenching and powering up pneumatic tools than with their wives on the weekends. And typically this is not their fault, but the result of an endless 'honey do' list.

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.

Goodhew, Icebreaker, KEEN, Point 6, SmartWool and Teko Light Hiking Socks review
Written by Andrew Horton   

When hitting the trail, wearing the right pair of hiking socks is important as carrying enough water. The right pair can prevent blisters and provides comfort and support along the way. This latest sock roundup highlights light hiking socks made by some of the most reputable companies in the industry. All six companies - Goodhew, Icebreaker, Keen, Point6, Smartwool, and Teko - have similarities in style, cut, blend (most used a merino blend), and overall feel. The only way to distinguish the difference is to blaze the trails with each pair.

I/O Bio Merino Track Jacket review
Written by Jason Elliot   
I/O Bio Merino Track Jacket
images/I/O Bio Merino

A crisp and cold fall morning begs you to stretch your legs out on an inspired run. The humidity has decreased and the temperatures have dropped. Early morning runs can be cold and miserable. A little extra for a top layer may be needed to regulate your body heat.

The I/O Bio Merino Track Jacket solves the need for a light long sleeve top layer. The Track Jacket has a zip front and side pockets, high collar and cuffs with thumb loops.  I/O Bio Merino’s parent company is Mitchell Wool, a leader in sourcing Merino wool since 1870. And merino is the material in the Track Jacket (95% merino and 5% elastane).
