This is a great Jacket. Lighter weight than other soft shells I've owned. Very breathable. The hood is a tad tight with a helmet, however I do also have a giant head. I'm 6'2" 195lbs and the large fits great. I went with the mountain safety orange (because that was all that was avail. in my size) which I cringed at at first, but now I like it. I stick out in summit shots just fine!

These are my new go to boxers. Great fit. I bought these, patagonia boxerbriefs and mountain hardwear boxer briefs just to test out a few brands. They can make it through the day without constant adjusting. While backpacking other boxers tend to fight with my hiking shorts, they want to give me a wedgie and my shorts want to sag. These keep right in place. Best of all, they don't smell like dead things after one use (like my old go to's, Under Armour). Highly recommended, I'm going to buy a few more pairs.

I love this hat. Plain and simple.

I wear it while backpacking, fly fishing, approach hiking, camping, driving... It's particularly useful on backpacking trips. If its too hot for a hat, I fold it up and stow in any pocket. The brim is long enough for keeping the sun off of my eyes and short enough to make me forget its in my pocket. It's often made me the brunt of many Castro jokes (I have a beard), but I don't care. I'm going to buy another right now.

I got this in the mail yesterday and have had it on since. Its very soft, warm and reasonably lightweight. The cut is great and fits me and my longish torso very well. Its nice to find something in a size thats long enough without being cut for a heftier man. It looks nice too; I'm wearing it at work right now (Well I don't have to wear a tie for my job).

I love this jacket. Its super-ultra lightweight and very warm. Its not as puffy as most down jackets out there so you can wear it out on the town without looking like marshmallow backcountry boy. Its a great layering piece and packs down to about the size of a Nalgene (maybe smaller). I originally bought it for very cold temps but I don't it would cut it for sub-zero. However its turned into a great down sweater that I will bring along on 80% of my backcountry ventures from summer peak baggin' to fall backpacking.
