Fall and winter are my favorite seasons. I like the crisp temperatures, blue skies, and the opportunity to try out new fleeces. This year I will be using the Montane Viper Hoodie – a lightweight hoodie with POLARTEC Thermal Pro Fabric.  You can read my initial thoughts HERE.

Time passes fast when you are in comfort. The Acorn Rambler MOC Men’s shoe is an outdoor/indoor shoe. In a New England winter, I use this shoe outdoors, weather permitting. The majority of the time, I wear these shoes indoors. My feet are the first to notice the temperature variations in my house which result from not running the heat 24/7. These are the areas I will discuss in this report along with pertinent information.

Stay Warm with the Canada Goose Camp Jacket

Canada Goose Camp Down Jacket

Canada Goose Camp Down Jacket

When I was first told that I would be reviewing a down jacket, my immediate feeling was that I would be wearing something that emphasized my worst features and made me look like a doughboy that is on tv a lot this time of year. I was not at all enthusiastic. But, Canada Good has definitely proven me wrong. Their Camp Jacket has got to be my favorite jacket ever. It’s the perfect combination of outdoor wear and city active wear. I’ve worn it to go out to dinner at fancy restaurants as a jacket to go with a nice outfit. But, more notably, I’ve also worn it for all of my winter expeditions and come back nice and toasty warm despite the wretched temperatures. My most recent expedition with the Canada Goose Camp Jacket led me to Pleasant Mountain in Maine, which is a small local peak known for great views with minimal time on the trail. To read more about my trip itself, read the full report here. Otherwise, you can find my thoughts from the trail on the Canada Goose Camp Jacket by going to my review here.
