I wanted a pair of really thin inner gloves to use inside big winter mitts, and these ones are perfect. They are super thin and so far quite durable, the extra insulation they provide in combination with my MH washerbaums guarantee to keep your hands warm in the most harsh conditions. They are real nice for sports activities on chilly days as well. Bonus: I kinda feel like a cat burglar whenever I put em on :)

Great, warm mittens. They hold up very good in cold conditions. I like the fact that you can operate the tightness with the mittens on, lots of other solutions I have tested aint that easy to tighten with these kind of big mittens. Also the carabiner loop and the leather palms are great addition for those who like to use them for stuff involving climbing or rappelling. If you buy a pair of really thin inner gloves (like merino wool) you will never freeze on your hands, and you will still keep the warmth if you need to pull of one mitt to do stuff that require some finger finger actions.

I´ve had my share of sleeping pads, and this one pluss the Pacific Outdoor Cruiser Mountain Sleeping Pad are my two favourites. If I find room for it, I always go for the Exped since I sleep better due to the extra thickness. Takes some time to fully inflate it, but once you get the hang of it - it aint that bad. Been using it directly on rocky grounds a few times and although I was a little sceptic it held out thru the night without puncturing. I usualy drag around a ultrathin pad to keep under this one just to be on the safe side, but it seems to be durable even without. Besides it comes with a repair kit if you should manage to puncture it. Great pad, saving my back and makes me sleep better. If only my tentmates could top snoring also, it would be perfect :)

At first I didnt really like them. Thought they where too sweet. I still find them a little too sweet, but at least I can easily eat 3 of them either during a mountain biking trip or afterwards. Hard to say if they give that much of an effect, but then again if you make yourself believe that it works, it probably does. Never underestimate the psychological effect it can have on you :) Bottomline: I seem to carry them around more and more often...

So far only tried the tri-berry since "everyone" said those where the best. I like the taste, and they kinda sprite up my regular water. I also notice that the time it takes to restitute from a work-out session is shorter when I drink at least 0,5 liter of Nuun mix afterwards. Good for that little extra boost or recovery.

I am done with traverse ski poles, could just be me but all the models Ive had have broken after just a few trips. These are no exception.They seemed sturdy and fine on my first trip, but pushing them a little made em brake. If anyone have recommendations for a sturdy traverse ski pole, let me know!
Oh, and in case anyone wonders, I used em uphill when they broke, was working my way up to a summit, and cant say I leaned to heavily on them either.

The moment I put on this shirt I knew I had to get another one, it was so soft on the skin and comfy to wear that I tend to use them on a daily basis as well. (so I bought 2 more :-) I like the long sleeves with thumb holes but I also like the loooong zipper that makes it easier to let out some extra heat on warm days. I´d sure like to see carmen electra in this shirt with the zipper all the way down, no that would be hot...

I bought this as a backup lamp in case my bigger 14 LED malfunctions in the middle of the night out in the middle of nowhere. But I often use it as my primary lamp since it has a red lens that wont mess up my night vision as much as a bright white LED will. Apart from that its a sturdy little, lightweight lamp that wont take up much room in your backpack or your pocket for that sake. More than enough light for walking round at night, but not powerful enough for running, mountain biking or other activities with a little more speed in it.

Very satisfied with this pad, Ive used it on several hikes and also directly on the snow in wintertime. Works very good and prevents my body heat to vanish into the ground. Its also very lightweight and small but still have enough padding to keep ya comfortably through the night. Combine it with a reindeer skin on top on those freezing winter hikes and you will sleep like a baby :-)

I only use it for boiling water, and for that purpose its the best one Ive tried so far. I have several days out in the mountains every winter in just a tent and beeing one of the lightest and fastest boiling pots I always make sure its in my backpack when I go out. It probably works just fine for regular cooking also, like the other reviews mention. Great pot.

What I like most about my whipserlite is that its far more quiter than my MSR XGK. It still makes a lot of noise when using inside a tent to heat it up, but compared to the XGK its half the noise in my ears. Its also very lightweight and small and takes a good portion of beating too, still havnt managed to break mine even though I kinda have abused it severe sometimes. For those cold winter days where canister stoves just wont do, this is a excellent companion.

Finally a valve that wont leak. Ive tried several and after a little use most of them start to leak. This one takes a little longer to use since you have to turn it with your fingers but you wont have the annoying leaks running down your jacket. It is a little clumsy for biking use, but as soon as you a little familiar with it, you learn when to and when not to operate it under speedy bike descents :) For most other uses like skiing, hiking it works perfect for my needs. Bottomline, it wont leak!

Ive had enough fleece jacket to make a sail for a medium size sailing boat. Not all of the where any good, but this one from North Face have been my favorite from the first time I put it on. I took the asphalt grey and the color is darn nice. The zipper is also well though of, and due to its construction its not annoying even if its all the way up. The arms are somewhat longer than normal and I think its great coz I cant stand jackets with too short arms that crumbles up an inch or two above your wrist.
