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 [...]

Sierra Designs Women’s Hiking Tank

Sierra Designs Women’s Hiking Tank

I like wearing tank tops on hot summer days, but I don’t like  sunburnt shoulders, tell-tale tan lines, and chafing under my backpack straps. The Sierra Designs Women’s Hiking Tank covers these bases with grace and style, so I can have the protection of a tee with the freedom of a tank when I’m spending long [...]

Helly Hansen Women’s Pace Supportive Singlet 2 draft

Tank top weather has finally arrived here in northwestern Wyoming, and I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the Helly Hansen Women’s Pace Supportive Singlet 2, soaking up the Vitamin D while wearing it running, climbing, and for gym workouts.

Smartwool Lightweight Tee

Smartwool Cortina Skort

Smartwool Cortina Skort

For spring and summer, there’s only one thing I like better than a short skirt: a short skort!  Smartwool’s Cortina Skort is fun, versatile, and very flattering. Right out of the box, I liked the slim fit and the wide waistband.  It’s really wide, and it’s lined with soft, wicking merino wool.  The skirt part [...]

When I slipped the Prana Kira Top over my arms and shoulders, I was initially confused because the racer back part [...]

Smartwool Microweight Bikini Brief

The first thing I packed for my summer vacation in Minnesota: merino wool underpants!  Nothing beats the heat like Smartwool’s Microweight merino Bikini Brief. I don’t like hot temperatures, and I really don’t like soggy underwear.  It might seem odd to wear wool underwear in 90+ degree heat, but it’s the only way to go [...]
