When the wind begins to wail and rain falls high on a climb, things can get miserable pretty quickly. Unfortunately, most jackets are too bulky to pack as “just in case” insurance on a loaded climbing harness—but not the Berghaus VapourLight. Read more >>
Eddie Bauer Flats Polo
England, Mike
A technical fishing shirt is fine on the river, but wear it anywhere else and you become that guy—the identity-deficient dweeb who wants everyone to know he’s a fly fisherman. Which is why I like the Flats Polo from Eddie Bauer. Read more >>
Patagonia Tenpenny Pants Review
England, Mike
Like the proverbial male wearer thereof, a good summer pant is hard to find. Maybe the fit’s too tight for unrestricted outdoor play, or the material too absorbent, or the fabric too flimsy to endure abrasion—sometimes all of the above. Read more >>
paddling jacket, kokatat X-Jacket
England, Mike

gear, belts, Outside Bozeman, Montana
Tucker, David
The Jelt Belt is an ideal piece of gear, although calling it gear might be a bit of a misnomer as it is just as practical around town as it is on the trail. Read more >>
winter gear, fleece, Outside Bozeman, Montana
Krueger, Ryan
It’s been a while since I’ve had a favorite fleece—one that I wore often and could count on for anything. A layer to throw on and head downtown while still being comfortable indoors, technical enough to use while recreating, and not so fragile that you’re afraid to abuse it. Read more >>

buff, headwear, facemask
Pogge, Drew
Sunburn sucks, no matter the time of year, and long fall days on the river can produce epic burns. Luckily, the Montana UV Buff blocks 95% of UV rays—without being stiflingly hot. Read more >>
England, Mike
When the fishing’s hot and a late-afternoon thundershower crashes the party, a good rainshell can make the difference between placid composure and a full-on freak-out. Read more >>
