    I don't bother wearing any rain gear until it gets down to about 10C (50F). Then I put on a gore-tex jacket and pants from The North Face. Up until recently, I used to use a tall pair of rubber...

    Well the coal rollers in the article have a good point, but I'm a bit confused. The argument is that environmental laws are forcing diesel trucks to be less fuel efficient, less powerful, and have...

    There are lots of good waterproof socks out there, but I've always had the opinion that the boot should be doing that job.

    Actually now that I've thought about it, a less heavy boot will do just...

    Clipless changed my life

    Just this last winter, I bought a Merino sweater. It was thin, but kept me much warmer than I expected. Without a doubt, this material outperforms my polyester athletic sweater on a pound-per-pound...
