Alan Herschman's Bio

NE Ohio is usually not associated with per se "good weather". My gear is essential to my fixed gear lifestyle and survival around campus. Without it, I am a mere mortal.

Great socks. SmartWool keeps your feet and a moderate degree in any temperature. I wear a size 9.5- 10 and ordered the mediums. The elastic is just tight enough up top to prevent sock fall. There is light cushioning that makes these socks great around the house or on the trail. No complaints here (ehh pricey), great socks.

Best fleece ever. I found this fleece on SAC for fifty some dollars! What a steal! The MH Octans has a very warm build and looks amazing. The main material on this jacket is a very "cool" looking hexagon design... very sharp. There are two internal pockets mirroring the outer waist pockets that were not advertised. I found this space very useful when hauling light gear. This Fleece is great in mild weather and when layered, adds a substantial amount of warmth. Great fleece for the price! I found the fit perfect and would recommend this buy.

I've used the Kramer Jacket on campus, throughout this grueling winter in NE Ohio. I have always been very please with the quality of a Mountain Hardware build. The jacket has an awesome fit and a EPIC collar. I am 5'5" with a slim athletic build and am very pleased with a medium fit. There is plenty of room to layer (MH Octans Fleece) without compromising the slender design. Along with three outer and one inner zip pockets, there is an internal mesh space for quick access to gloves or a beanie. The shoulder area is lined with a very plush "synthetic fur" for extra warmth. The Kramer Jacket supplies a good amount of warmth and performs very well in windy conditions. The water proofing could have performed a bit better, but I am very happy with this purchase. I would like to reiterate how ridiculous the collar on this jacket is. The Kramer collar alone is enough to keep you warm all season.
