I have several of these for puffy jackets that can't be stuffed in a pocket. The 4L size is perfect for full jackets and pants. The 2.5 is great for vests. I really like how they come in different colors so I know which jacket or pants I am pulling out.
This is a great baselayer top. Feels great against the skin and is lightweight when that's all you need. Fits great and you can unzip it if you get too hot so all around a great layer.
These are a nice lightweight baselayer and they are simply awesome. They keep you nice and dry and feel great against the skin. Need to update all of my baselayers to wool.
This softshell cuts out all the not really necessary features like too many pockets. It is really lightweight for a softshell. It won't restrict your range of motion in whatever activity you are doing. It sheds light precip and a good deal of wind. This jacket works great in the snow, I haven't found it to let too much moisture in unless you were actually laying in the snow.
These pants are nice and lightweight. They cut out most of the features to help save weight. Paired with a good baselayer it is perfect for highly active activities. The patches on the insides of the ankles are great for protecting against ski edges or crampons. I have been a fan of these so far.
This is a pretty good watch for getting out side. It is bulkier than most so might not be the best everyday watch. I like the hydration alarm where you can set it for X amount of time it will go off and just hit a button to stop the alarm and it will automatically start counting down again. Nice feature if you have to do something every so often. Seems pretty bombproof, but haven't tested that too harshly. It can be a little uncomfortable depending one what you are doing. All around this watch is great for adventuring.
This is a great lightweight fleece when you just need a little something extra. It is nice and soft and feels good next to skin. It is a no frills pullover so there is not much you need to say about it. No pockets just the center zip so it saves a little on weight. It is still fleece so it will have a bulkyness when packed. Not a bad price compared to a lot of other fleeces on the market these days.
This vest fits nicely and is a perfect layer for active days when it is cold but you will warm up quickly while moving. Adds enough warmth you could get by with a lightweight puffy on top when you are not as active. It has a slightly roomy fit so you can wear it on top of some fleece layers if need be.
This is a nice shirt to just wear around town while you plan for your next adventure.
This is a great hoodie for lounging around the house or out in town when you don't need much. It is super comfortable, I throw it on and can relax after a long day or a quick run to the store. It feels great against your skin and is just an all around great hoodie for those slow times. I will say the colors might seem a little faded from what they show online but really not a huge deal, it kind of gives it a worn in look.
This is a great hoodie for casual wear around town or at home. It is simple, comfortable, and stylish. Great buy on sale.
This hoodie is perfect for cool days. If the temp really drops throw it on under some other layers and you will be good to go. Has a nice look to it so you can also wear it casually when you stop for a beer on the way home.
I am Irish and the sun and I do not get along very well. This is a great addition to sun protection on the neck. I always have it with me when I am doing stuff outside. I also love how many uses it has. I have several different Buffs and they all make it into my pack depending on the conditions if it is sunny or cold or whatever.
Perfect for coffee or taking any other drink that you just want a small amount for a meal. Pair it with the flip top and you can take it on the go and still have access to it easy.
It is a Hydro Flask so you get the performance of one. This one is great because it still fits in your cup holder in your car. I always fill this up when I leave the house so I have cold water in the car.
There is nothing better than nice cold water at the end of a long day. No problem with a Hydro Flask. Ice remains hours later and the water stays cold long after the ice is gone. All around great bottle.
This is a great jacket to keep in your pack for winter adventures. It is plenty warm to keep you going on the coldest of days. It packs up pretty small (pick up a small stuff sack with it). If it gets really cold throw on the hood and you are all set.
While it won't be your one and only fleece jacket you need it does have its uses. The tight fitting hood is nice for days you don't think you will need a hat or you forget it at home. It is light enough to be used as a midlayer. Try to pick it up on sale though, I don' t think it is worth it paying full price.
