ULA waterproof mitts
I bought a pair of Brian's waterproof mitts and have used them half a dozen times this summer/fall. So far they have worked well solo, or as it gets colder, over some cheapie stretch polyester...

No Sealskinz
Whatever you buy, make sure it isn't Sealskinz. See Brett's review and mine, probably under raingear in the reader reviews. Correction - under clothing - wind and softshell

salmon taters - so this must be Wednesday?
Thanks for posting this, Sarah! The ingredients are all ones I like (no fungus, hooray!), so I'll give this one a shot, too. However, I nearly missed my Wednesday afternoon meeting, thinking ...

No Tuesday Taters?
Sarah - what's for dinner? I had to eat leftover soup.

No Dyneema at Seattle Fabrics
I was at Seattle Fabrics on Tuesday and asked about Dyneema and eVent fabric. They'd never heard of either one. Maybe when the military buys it they also do a memory flush?

Nacho taters a winner
I made these this evening, and I did the taste test with my eyes closed picturing myself at the end of a day of hiking in PNW drizzle ready to hop into my sleeping bag as soon as I eat something wa...

Wild Things Nevado jacket
To add more confusion to the data, I bought the WT EP jacket for cold but not freezing weather when I got the belay jacket, but wore it out beyond repair. That's when I got the Patagucci micro...

Belay jacket
Kyle - I don't know what the temperatures are that I've used the jacket in comfort, but my guess is in the high teens and twenties in gusting wind. If you're concerned about being too ...

Wild Things Belay Jacket
Kyle - I've had a WT belay jacket for about 4 years. I've used it on snowshoe trips in windy, very cold situations, and even as an actual belay jacket on a climb, and was very happy with i...

Botach Tactical Customer Service
I had a similar experience to David's. They sent the inferior space blankets, rather than the correct order, took forever to send a return UPS shipping label, and only yesterday admitted to recei...

Boomer's Guide to Lightweight Backpacking by Carol Corbridge
I was very disappointed in this book. Luckily, I didn't buy it but had checked it out from the library. For starters, the book is in major need of copy editing. There are lots of awkward sent...

Backpacking Light Merino UL Pants
These do everything BPL promised - provide comfortable warmth without being bulky. I've worn them under non-winter hiking pants all winter, and they've extended the comfort range down to 7 de...

Golite Paradox pants
I'm not sure whether to review these in raingear or softshell clothing, because they're both. They are all-day pants, rather than rain pants to pull on over hiking pants and are made of a fab...
