I got the New England Shirt Co's Check Chambray shirt a couple weeks ago and really like it so far. The material is nice and light, and the cut is excellent - I got a large and it fits true to size. I will be getting a lot of use out of this shirt this summer!

I got the Patagonia Horizon Line Up Pocket T shirt in March and have worn it a number of times. The orgainic cotton is super soft and washes well; I got the Drifter Grey color and really dig the colorful pocket - it's a nice bridge between a plain t-shirt and a full on graphic T. I'll probably end up getting another color, as these are great everyday t-shirts for summer.

I got the Basin and Range Meadows Dri-Release Polo shirt for a trip to Florida last week and am extremely impressed by the fit as well as the soft, technical material. As someone who likes to wear polo shirts frequently, I've come to find out that all polo shirts are not created equally, especially in terms of fit. Fortunately, Basin and Range has nailed the fit here - I am 6'2" 185 and the Large fits perfectly. I really like the super-soft Dri-Release material - it looks casual but wicks moisture and drys very quickly should you work up a sweat in it. During our time in Florida last week, I played golf in it, went on a bike ride and then finally ended up at the beach, all without needing to change shirts. I highly recommend the Meadow Dri-Release Polo shirt to anyone who is looking for a new shirt that fits and feels great and is always ready for anything.

I just got the Patagonia Printed Stretch Planing Board Short for a trip to Florida last weekend, and really like them so far. I've had a few different colors in the non-stretch Wavefarer Boardshorts for a number of years and really like them, but wanted to try the Stretch Planning's lighter, stretchy material and more trim fit.

I got the Stretch Planning in Textured Fitz Stripe/Howling Turquoise color, size 34x20 - I really like the colors and they fit me very well. The Stretch Planning fabric is excellent, as it is light, stretchy and dries quickly. Unlike some other stretch boardshorts I've tried, the Stretch Planning material does not become revealing when wet. While the Stretch Planning touts a more trim fit than the Wavefarer, I did not notice a huge difference as a result of the stretch and they still fit true to size.

I just got another Patagonia Bandito Shirt (Chambray/Glass Blue, size large) and took it down to Fruita, Colorado for my first desert mountain bike mission of the spring. Like last year's model (which I also have) the fit is true to size, but slightly trim, which gives the shirt a nice look and provides a more technical fit, so there isn't too much material flapping around while Biking/Hiking/Running. The material is soft and wicked very well on my ride. The collar provided great sun protection for my neck and didn't get in the way at all - plus, it's what makes this shirt so versitile as an everyday shirt.

For my personal head shape and size, the Patagonia P6 is the best fitting trucker hat I've ever owned - this applies to all of the other classic Patagonia Truckers as well, like the Fitz Roy Trout. For me, this hat has the perfect depth, and never feels like it's "riding up" and/or needs to constantly be pulled down. The brim has a nice, mellow curve to it and the inner headband is soft and comfortable. *Keep in mind, I have a rather large head - if you have a smaller head and find that most ball caps are too deep for you, check out Patagonia's "LoPro Trucker" hats.

I've been wearing the Patagonia Straight Fit Duck pant for a couple weeks now and I really like the updated fit. While the regular fit duck pants are still available, I went with Patagonia's new straight fit, as I have been wearing the Patagonia Denim in the straight fit and liked the more tailored cut. Patagonia's straight fit is by no means

Great Snowshoe kit!

I got 2 Atlas Rendezvous Snowshoe Kits for my mom this Christmas and she was super excited - we took them out that afternoon. While I am male and 6"2 185 with a US12 shoe size, I decided I would use the second set, and belive it or not, they worked perfectly! The adjustable poles are quite solid and easy to use, just like the snow shoes themselves. We used the snowshoes on mainly packed trails and a little unpacked powder, and they worked very well. I would recommend these to anyone looking to get a very "solid" set of snowshoes and poles!

I've been wearing the Darn Tough Merino Solid Crew socks for a few months now and am very pleased with the comfort, weight and thickness - don't worry, I've washed them a couple times ;) While these are relatively thin and lightweight socks, they are definitely a bit warmer than they look due to the high-quality Merino Wool. I've been wearing them as an everyday sock and haven't found them to be "cold", but keep in mind that I work in an office. Darn Tough Socks are made in Vermont, USA and have never let me down - I'm especially pleased to now have some casual socks from them, as I love their hiking, bike/run and ski socks. I wear a 11.5/12 size shoe US, and these fit me perfectly in size large.

I received the Dale Cortina Bomber sweater in Black/Off White a few months ago as a gift, and I'm thoroughly impressed with the fit, warmth and comfort it provides. The Cortina Bomber is a classic heavy-knit sweater that is quite soft to the touch - it's perfect for wearing over a button-down when the temps drop. I really like the button-up design, as it makes for easy on/off, and if it gets too warm, you can unbutton the sweater with ease. The leather elbow patches are a very nice touch for both durability and style. According to Dale's website, this design pay tribute to their original Cortina Olympic sweater from 1956.

I got it for her for Christmas and she absolutely loves it! Here's what she has to say - high quality, soft material that feels great on. She wears it to work as well as around the house, because it is the right blend of style and comfort. While she got a medium and loves it, she does feel as though it runs slightly large.

The Norrona Lyngen Lightweight Down Jacket is the lightest and most packable jacket in their line. This is a great do-it-all down jacket that I've been wearing by itself most days, and under a shell on the super-cold days. It like how it stashes into its own pocket, which makes it super easy to stuff in my backpack when I'm not using it. The face fabric is extremely light, as is the case with all lightweight/high-warmth jackets like this - personally, I haven't had any issues with mine and I've had it about 12 months. Great fit, true to size and the Ocean Swell Color is even better in person.

Norrona designed the Lyngen Driflex3 jacket for ski mountaineering - it's waterproof and breathable like a hardshell and durable and stretchy like a softshell. Norrona' s driflex3 material is also windproof, so although it's a reasonably light jacket, it will provide maxium protection from the elements, including wind. I really like the long, front ventilation zipper for dumping heat on the way up without having to unbuckle my pack in order to unzip my jacket. The fit here is quite standard, true to size.

I just got the Norrona Roldal Gore-Tex jacket in Caviar, and so far I'm impressed. I really like the roomy fit and added length - it has a cool, yet understated look to it. The material is burley, and in a cool, almost workwear type of way - I have no doubt that this jacket will handle everything I can throw at it on skis as well as my snomobile.

If you're looking for a lightweight, waterproof and warm ski jacket, the Norrona Lofoten Gore-Tex Primaloft Jacket should be right up at the top of your list. This is Norrona's warmest freeride jacket, combining both Gore-Tex and Primaloft Silver Insulation - and it's so flexible that it packs into its own pocket. Whether you're skiing ice-cold blower pow or heavy, wet snow, the insulated Lofoten jacket is up to the task.

The Patagonia Back Step shirt is a classic Hemp/Cotton blend and it's been one of my go-to shirts over the last couple years. I like the fabric, it's a great weight for year-round wear and has worn well. In terms of washing, I typically was it on cold, and put it in the dryer on extra-low for a short cycle - hang it up on a hanger in the shower and let it dry fully. While I'm not as adverse to using an Iron as some people, that's always an option if you want it extra crisp for a night on the town.
