Final Update: Montane Viper Hoodie

final update on the Montane Viper Hoodie
At the start of the Western States Endurance Run in Squaw Valley

50 plus miles of hiking and months of constant wear have made the Montane Viper Hoodie one of my favorite fleeces. It is perfect for lounging around the house or running errands, but it also has the technical chops to perform well in the backcountry.  Click HERE for my complete final update on the Montane Viper Hoodie.

Final Update – Stio Environ Pant

Final Update - Stio Environ Pant

Sunny day on the mountain

Winter came in like a lion and then sputtered and rain took the major form of precipitation instead of snow.  The lack of snow coupled with training for my first 100 mile ultra-marathon meant that the Stio Environ pants saw significant amounts of use for snowshoeing and hiking, but only one ski trip.  However, I have over 200 miles of hiking and snowshoeing in the pants so I feel I gave them a serious test.  The pants have performed admirably and are my new favorite waterproof pants to adventure in.  They have kept me dry, are durable and comfortable no matter what the conditions.  Read my review here.
