Gear Revisited: Triple Aught Design Raptor Hoodie

Post Image

There are times when a piece of gear doesn’t rotate out of our inventory and it becomes a favorite.  Such was the case with the Triple Aught Design Raptor Hoodie.  I’ve worn the Raptor for a year and a half.  When I reviewed it last year, I originally thought it would only be a three […]

A.G. Watch Cap Now Available in Wolf Gray

A.G. Watch Cap Special Edition 2

The Prometheus Design Werx A.G. Watch Cap has been by far my favorite cold weather hat since I purchased one and did a review on it last year.  The fit is great, it’s warm, and the premium grade merino wool that PDW uses doesn’t pill.      Except for one Special Edition run of DRB […]

First Look: Prometheus Design Werx Solo Jacket 100C

Post Image

The Prometheus Design Werx Solo Jacket is made from 10-ounce 100% Cotton Canvas treated with a DWR finish.   It sort of reminds me of the TAD Rogue Jacket, but hopefully without all the shrink-to-fit weirdness and gorilla length sleeves.  Also, that jacket was made from 6-ounce NYCO ripstop, so the material on the Solo […]

First Look: Patagonia Nano-Air Hoody

Post Image

As many of you know, I’ve enjoyed the Triple Aught Design Equilibrium (EQ) jacket this season as a breathable mid layer and insulated outer layer.  As a stand alone jacket, the only downside is that it doesn’t have a hood.  Around here, where the weather can change rapidly, I usually like having a hood on […]

This past week, I visited San Francisco and decided to stop by TAD’s HQ to check out some of their new gear.     This time, I was mostly interested in clothing and tried several pieces on including their Vector SC and Intercept Selvedge Denim pants. I would have pulled the trigger on the Vector SC’s […]

Prometheus Design Werx A.G. Watch Cap Review

Post Image

I was tent camping up in Wisconsin this past weekend and, even though it’s getting warmer, the temperatures dropped into the low 40’s at night.  That might not sound like much, but I tend to sleep cold and the Kifaru Woobie I had brought as part of my sleep system wasn’t cutting it (another review […]
