Ibex Izzi Tack Pant

Ibex Izzi Tack Pant

I’ve been waiting for Ibex’s Izzi Tack Pant for a long time. I wanted a pant that was body-hugging like my old Sporthill running pants but not tight like a pair of running tights. And, of course, made out of merino wool. Ibex’s Izzi Tack Pant makes the cut. Designed like an equestrian pant, the [...]

Ibex’s Indie Hera Hoody

Ibex’s Indie Hera Hoody

I grew up wearing kangaroo-pocket hooded sweatshirts, but I long outgrew the heavy weight of sweatshirt material.

Made out of 100% 18.5 micron merino wool, this stylish, cozy hoody has so much more to offer than [...]

Farm To Feet Spring Creek Broken Stripe Socks

Farm To Feet Spring Creek Broken Stripe Socks

Over the past few years, I’ve been replacing my cotton socks with wool socks. Now I’ve  started allowing a few wool-blend socks in my sock drawer because they’re a bit less expensive that 100% merino wool socks but still offer similar benefits. Farm to Feet Creek Broken Strip Everyday Crew Socks are a perfect example of this [...]

Kari Traa Rose LS Baselayer

Kari Traa Rose LS Baselayer

Gearwise, one of the best thing to happen to me this year was discovering Scandinavian brands like Kari Traa. See, my people were vikings, and I’m six feet tall, so finding women’s apparel that fits is challenging. Then I tested the Kari Traa Rose LS Baselayer, and found the perfect top for fit and function. [...]

Columbia Freeze Degree III Short Sleeve Top

Columbia Freeze Degree III Short Sleeve Top

I’ve been so busy the past few months that I’ve developed a bad habit: stopping by the gym on my way home from errands and exercising in my street clothes (and shoes). Kind of ironic since I made fun of adults for doing the very same thing when I was a kid. At any rate, I’ve been trying to [...]

FITS Women’s Light Ski OTC Sock

FITS Women’s Light Ski OTC Sock

I skied for two weeks in Europe with one pair of socks: FITS Women’s Light Ski OTC Sock socks. They were fabulously comfortable, and kept my feet warm and dry. Made out of a merino wool, nylon, spandex blend, the FITS Women’s Light Ski OTC Sock have a great design. They’re fitted in the toe, heel and shin. [...]

Helly Hansen Women’s HH Warm Pant

People say that boots are the most important piece of ski gear, but I would put it out there that a good set of baselayers can also make for a better day out on the slopes. The Helly Hansen Women’s HH Warm Flow High Neck ½ Zip Top and HH Warm Bottoms are that magic [...]

Smartwool PhD NTS Mid 250 Funnel Zip T

Smartwool came to my rescue with the Smartwool Men’s PhD NTS Mid 250 Funnel Zip T. (Also available in women’s sizes.) Made out of ultra-soft 100% [...]

Patagonia All Weather Zip-Neck Hoody

Patagonia All Weather Zip-Neck Hoody

When temperatures drop, I find it essential to have layers that perform equally well at wicking moisture and warming limbs in order to motivate me for that extra mile. With the added bonus of an odor-controlling fabric treatment, the feature-rich Patagonia All Weather Zip-Neck Hoody is a magical layer for cool-weather workouts. (Available in men’s [...]
