Wind & Waterproof gear
I would definately add a Gortex/Paclite or other WB shell with a good hood and WB pants. Softshells are great but they just cannot stand up to the roaring winds on Washington. Snow, sleet, and rain...

Training your ankles
Now I know many of you have read Ray Jardine's Beyond Backpacking and I'm curious to find out if there is any truth to his claim that ankle injuries are due to the lack of ankle fitness and...

Soft Shell Mystery
Thank you Richard for the excellent post regarding the science behind textiles and how they feel to the wearer. Your commentary on microfibers is spot on. The "coolest" feeling jacket I o...

Soft Shell Mystery
I have been perplexed by something for years. Can someone tell me why some fabrics feel colder on than others. Case in point: Powerstretch (Marmot) vs powershield (Gamma SV). Same thickness and...

RAB Vapour -Rise
RAB now makes a Vapour Rise jacket for women and it even has a hood! Wow! I've been looking for a lined Pertex Equilibrium jacket for years to replace my 1994 Marmot Driclime. The later Driclime mo...

Houdini vs Mamot Ion
Both are great windshirts with great fabrics but the Houdini edges out the Ion. Far better hood coverage on the Houdini and the draw cord at the waist stamps out those pesky breezes.

Golite Momentum
I really love this jacket and how well it performs in winter. The Golite Momentum is constructed of a super lightweight Polartec Powershield that barely tips the scale at 12oz. The Powershield is back...

Patagonia Houdini Wind Jacket
Hands down my favorite windshirt. At only 4 oz there is no reason to leave it home! The jacket packs super small, deflects wind & light rain very well, has a great adjustable hood with good facia...

GoLite Phantom Jacket
Wonderfully lightweight with lots of features. Repels rain, wind, and snow like a champ and the pitzips and pockets work great to ventilate. My only complaint is the hood is just too small for good co...

Montbell Thermawrap jacket
I purchased the ladies version of this jacket and love it! It is lofty, super warm, super lightweight, repels wind and light rain, and dries quickly. Here in the northeast, it has been rather cold. I&...

Marmot DriClime
I've been wearing Driclime windshirt since the early 1990's and have to say the original is still the best. The original has a lofty feel, wicks great, breaths, and repels water very well (lik...
