I have softshell jackets from Arc'teryx, Marmot, Patagonia and Mountain Hardware and this jacket is by FAR my favorite. I used this jacket for a 10 mile bike ride (10mph wind - 42 degrees) and I did not even feel the wind come through my jacket once. The fabric is very soft and slightly stretchy and the inside is insulated by a light layer of fleece to keep you nice and warm. The pit zips are HUGE, which is a good thing, and they do work very well when needed. The wrists have velcro straps and they are not cheap - unlike my Arc'teryx Beta SL's wrists straps. The Inuit is a VERY fit jacket meaning it is tailored to fit your body closer, so if you are wanting to layer underneath this jacket then I might suggest you buy a size up. I love this jacket because it keeps me warm, keeps out wind and light moisture, looks good and is a great investment (lets face it, you might as well spend a little more money for nicer gear thats going to last a long time than spend less money on cheap gear thats not going to last 2 years). I would recommend this jacket to anyone.

I have several jackets and fleeces from Patagonia and I think the Guide is my most used after my R1. The only other jacket that I have that I can compare it to is my Arc'teryx Epsilon AR - except I think the Guide has a lot more function and purpose. The fabric on the Guide is not too thick and it is indeed stretchy. There is some fleece on the inside for light insulation but I would layer if I was wearing this on colder days. There are 3 pockets on the inside (1 chest, 2 hand) and they all get plenty use with all the stuff I carry. I think it has a very nice casual look so you can wear it around downtown after you hike. Overall, I love my Guide jacket and I would recommend it.

This jacket is one of the least used that I own. There is really nothing special about this jacket except that it looks great and can hold off some light moisture. My Epsilon AR doesn't get used very much because I have other jackets that do a better job of keeping out wind/moisture that are even lighter than this jacket. But If I want to look good at casual events, I usually bring this jacket along.

The two mesh pockets on the inside are huge! I could probably fit 2 footlong meatball sandwiches in these pockets (they would be nicely squished though). I usually keep my keys or my cellphone (small Nokia) in the arm pocket. If you are looking for a very simple, nice looking, nice fabric jacket than this might be the jacket you should get.

I have been using my spoilers for about 5 months now and I have to say that they have become some of my favorite sunglasses. I am more used to the bigger "face hugger" style sunglasses, but I have really grown to love these Interlock spoilers. On the days when it isn't too bright outside, but I still need to wear some eye protection, I can switch the lenses out to a different lens shade - it only takes about a minute to change lenses and is really simple. They also look really good and provide good eye coverage. Overall, I would recommend these.

Incredible...the down sweater has 84 reviews and counting - this should tell you how good this jacket is! It is one of those jackets that you take with you everywhere and gets used and worn often.

The down sweater is extremely light yet provides surprising amounts of insulation and warmth. I usually only wear a tshirt underneath my jacket, even on really cold days of around 30 degrees. It does pack down very small and compact which makes it alot easier to carry around with you when you aren't wearing it. The design is very well executed and the colors (mine is the light gecko green) are very appealing. I've had the chance to use it in some rain and it did do a good job of shedding the moisture but I would not want to wear this for long periods of time in rain or snow.
It really is a great jacket and I would recommend you buy it.

I have a lot of Icebreaker clothing, mostly T-shirts, and this is probably one of my favorites. It is very soft and light - I agree with one of the reviewers below that this is an excellent traveling shirt. I don't usually fit into a large size however, I bought a large anyway and threw it in the dryer for a few minutes (NOT recommended) and it did shrink to the size that I wanted it and now fits perfectly!

I mostly bought this because I wanted a watch that would be light, simple and great for taking on hikes/outdoor activities. It looks pretty cool and I get asked about it all the time. I'm not so sure about the whole "Negative Ion Technology" witchcraft stuff but I really like the vivid orange color!

I don't know what everyone else is talking about but I think this jacket fits perfect! I am 5'10 and 175lbs and a Medium fits me just fine. The Luft is actually more wind resistant than I thought and it has the right amount of insulation to keep me nice and warm. I think the Beehive color looks pretty dang cool too.

My only concerns with this jacket are that there is ALOT of stitching, which concerns me because it may come loose sooner than later...but so far it is still in good shape! Also, the zippers snag more often when I am zipping it up, but I personally don't think its that big of a deal.

Overall - Great warm jacket and looks great. I recommend it!

First of all, the Vertical bag has sooooo many pockets and compartments which is why for me, it is perfect for school. It holds my laptop, a few books and keeps all my chords (for the laptop) and other school supplies separated and easily reachable. I haven't had a chance to use this bag hiking but I'm sure it would do the job just fine. Overall it is a very great choice for a backpack!

This bag has been everywhere with me and has held up better than I have hoped. I have used my Heli Pro in Alaska for 3 summers, many camping/hiking trips in So. Utah and I have used it for school (although this is not a good school backpack, but I made it work). It fits tons of gear and keeps things nicely organized inside with pockets and compartments.

This bag actually holds a lot more than I thought it would. I can fit all of my toiletries in this bag and still have a little room to throw in some extras. When I traveled before, I used to just throw all my bathroom supplies in a big plastic bag and hope nothing spills or leaks but when I saw the wallaby I immediately bought it to save me some hassle.

I love the hook on top because I can hang it on door handles, tree branches, bushes, or other improvised locations. I have used this many times in hotels, airplanes and camping trips and it performs great each time. I recommend it!
