WoolX Glacier Heavyweight Bottom

WoolX Glacier bottom It’s no secret that merino wool is one of the best materials for next to skin outdoor wear.  WoolX offers several tops and bottoms in different weights. I’ll be testing the heavyweight top and bottom.  Read what I think about the Glacier heavyweight bottom here.

Running with the Smartwool PhD Run Light Elite Socks

Review of the Smartwool Women's PhD® Run Light Elite Kneehigh Socks

Review of the Smartwool Women’s PhD® Run Light Elite Kneehigh Socks

I started running at the beginning of the year when one of my girlfriends urge(urged) me to sign up for a 5K race series. Every week I was intrigued by everyone wearing compression socks and sleeves. Smartwool asked me to try out their Women’s PhD® Run Light Elite Kneehigh Socks and naturally I jumped at the opportunity. I’ve known the Smartwool brand for years and they have a reputation for high quality merino wool apparel. Running gear, however, was not on my radar when I thought of Smartwool. I have been wearing the Women’s PhD® Run Light Elite Kneehigh Socks in Aubergine/Hibiscus for about a week now including my first 5 miles race and several training runs and other workouts. So, the question is, should you add Smartwool to your running gear radar? Check out the first segment of my review and be sure to follow 4AllOutdoors.org to see how they fair in the long run. (Yes, pun intended.)

During this period, I further validated the findings of my last report. The weather continued to be rainy and humid. I wore the Fits Trail socks daily and the Hiker socks for a 3 hour hike in the Middlesex Fells Reservation.  To read more.

Icebreaker GT Run short sleeve shirt

The GT Run short sleeve shirt was provided by Icebreaker for review purposes.

The GT Run is an all wool crew neck shirt that is very light and thin.  The GT is designed to be a base layer which provides an initial layer of insulation.  I had requested an XL since I do not like my clothes too tight.  I received a Large which turned out to be a perfect fit.  I have lost some 20 pounds since last year and may need to consider my size more carefully when ordering.  I will go more into product details as my report progresses.
