So these gloves are really great! I know that people like to write really long reviews on this site, but I like to keep it simple. You could use these gloves anytime that you would traditionally use a fleece glove. The advantage is that they will shed light moisture and have a fantastic grip. I have field tested these gloves and I would suggest them to anyone. They run true to size.

I really like most things Patagonia, but I am not really a fan of this shirt. Yes, it did the job, but then again we are talking about a t-shirt. I saw no advantage of this shirt over any traditional cotton competitor.

Spend the extra money and go for something that is a little more on the performance side of things. Just my two cents.

I like everything about this hat minus the fit.

The Good: The material is great and it does an awesome job of wicking away any moisture. It also dries fast and makes an excellent hat for out on the trail. In addition I love the fish logo and it is perfect in scale and color.

The Bad: The fit, the fit, the fit. I ordered a large which is what I wear in every other hat. I even wear a L in other Patagonia hats. This cut is just way too big. Order a size down and you should be just fine.

Let me start by saying I really like this jacket. This bad boy has been able to handle everything I have thrown at it to this point. It is warm and the material combination along with strategic panels allow for easy movement. It is simple and to the point. If you are looking for a one quiver jacket, this is not it. This is great for around camp and around town.

My one issue is the fit. I am 6'3 230 but in good shape. I would wear a large in most jackets but was advised to order an XL in Montbell. The fit is correct in the neck and sleeves. It is not a good fit in the torso. It is way too loose. Once again this is not a huge knock, but it is something to consider when ordering.

No joke that Peak Performance's pricing makes Patagonia seem affordable. After considerable deliberation and chatting with Jeff W. in customer service I took the leap. I am so glad I did!

This shirt is amazing. I love how the neck zips into the hood allowing it to function at a multitude of temps. The thumb loops are a nice feature also.

The material has a strange feel to it, but after wearing it I want everything to be made out of it! It runs small so order one size larger than what you need. I wear a L in Patagonia but a XL in Peak.

I agree that these shorts run a little big, so if you are on the fence go one size down. In my mind that is the only weakness. These things are amazing! Comfortable, well made and dry fast. Despite the price these are all attributes that I look for in summer shorts. They also work well for climbing and I did some hiking this weekend in them also. Go for it, they are worth the money!

I really like this watch. It has almost every feature you could ever need. It is really nice to have all of these features in one place. I would not use it for an accurate compass, but you should never use a watch for that. Pull out the old fashion compass and use that to get your way around if you get off track.

I have the blue band and it seems to do the job. I would like it to be a little thicker and more durable, but I would rather them spend the money on the watch and not on the band.

Overall I gave this four stars. I better band would have bumped it up to five. Regardless of the stars this is well worth the money.
