I like my windwall vest mucho. More so than my Marmot vest. This vest is used primarily as an insulating layer underneath another coat on a particularly cold day. It does a good job at blocking out cold and wind. I do not like the way the neck zips up and feel, however. The neck is too stiff. Otherwise, this is my winter vest now. I can wear it sans jackets during Spring and Fall, too, I figure.

Love the boxer shorts type fit and feel. Very light; feels like a swimsuit (sans jock) but looks and wears like a pair of shorts. Like the two deep front pockets, but would have also liked at least one cargo pocket and a zip fly. Love the water-resistant aspect. Great shorts. Now I have two.

I like my The North Face Bionic a lot. It is light, repels water, is comfy and works well in 40F-55F, depending on whether I have a layer underneath. The sleeves are a bit too long, but I figure that's for the climbers and jocks who need it. I love the look (in black), too. Great value this softshell. Excellent option to have in the closet.

Very light, nice, well-made, and great-priced jacket from MH. I like the large pit zips. Good fit, too. Good coverage. I cannot comment on the rain resistance though, which is why I bought it, cos it's been too cold in the north east to test yet (I bought this for spring, summer, fall wear), so my fingers are crossed, but I am betting it's gonna be a lot better than the run of the mill slicker I had (fer shur).

I rate this jacket highly because it is a great value. I love how light it is, and yet how warm it keeps me. I think it is fine with a long-sleeve shirt underneath down to about 32F, but anything colder than that I add a nice fleece layer, too. The Redpoint is well-made, and comfortable. I have no problems with the napoleon zipper getting stuck thus far. The hand pockets are medium-sized, and big enough for me. I wish The North Face had included an inside pocket. The jacket is so very light; I really like it a lot.

I like this light, comfy fleece shirt. It is very light, and provides a nice amount of warmth. It's a tad stretchy too, which is cool. The zipper catches a bit towards the top and a medium (which is my standard size) is a drop too snug for me (but I don't think a large would be appropriate). The value for this particular pull-over fleece is very good, so I am quite pleased I got it.
