Patagonia Untracked Pants and Jacket

The search for a do-it-all jacket/pants combo is over. Patagonia has hit it out of the park with the Untracked series. I love them for resort and backcountry skiing, the fit is great, and the features are outstanding. There you… Continue Reading →

Fjällräven Keb Trousers

Before I swan-dive into the Fjällräven Keb ($200) review, a brief lesson in Swedish is in order. You have to know how to pronounce “Fjällräven”. Get your tongue-roll on for the “r” and say it with me: “Fee-yellll-reh’ven”. Check you… Continue Reading →

Earth Sea Sky Katipo pants

When I got these Katipo soft-shell pants from Earth Sea Sky to review, I was living in the Central Australian desert—not an idea climate for testing pants that are designed for cold, windy weather. But the folks at Earth Sea… Continue Reading →

Klim Traverse Pants

Patagonia Simple Guide Pants and Hoody

Patagonia does “simple” just about as well as it can be done. I keep looking for anything not practically perfect about their stuff and I can usually not find it. I keep trying all their fancy new stuff and I… Continue Reading →

Helly Hansen Odin Mountain Pant

Holy crap these pants are awesome. They have Kevlar. They are customizeable. They have a great size range. They fit well. They’re warm. They cover all the bases. They’re brilliant. I guess I have to elaborate, but if you’re in… Continue Reading →

Mountain Hardwear Winter Wander Pants
