12/5/2011

These are tried and true products and services. My experience speaks to the quality of each item on this page. Since they have been plenty useful to me, I have no hesitation to share them with friends and hobby enthusiasts alike.

Patagonia Capilene Base Layer

The best option for high-sweat activities, Capilene baselayers come in four weights for different conditions and exertion levels.

Silkweight: the lightest synthetic baselayer - with UPF-15 sun protection - keeps you dry and cool.

Lightweight: the most breathable baselayer - keeps you dry and comfortable.

Midweight: the most versatible baselayer - keeps you dry and warm.

Expedition Weight: the warmest baselayer - keeps you dry and warm.

  • Stood up to 9 hours outdoors on a winter cross-country ski outing.
  • Great job wicking moisture away from the skin. Quick to wick, quick to dry.
  • Compared with a polyester "high profile" base layer on the same trip, the Capilene was 4 times more effective (estimated).
  • Anyway, Capilene was great.
  • No cold, clammy feeling when the workout was over.
  • Comes in colors.
  • Patagonia products come with a lifetime warranty.
Recycled and Recyclable Capilene fabric is made with 50% or more recycled polyester. And it's recyclable. Use the Patagonia Common Threads Recycling Program when it's worn out.
Highest recommendation: I'm buying more capilene from Patagonia.   patagonia.com

Arnica

  • Sports and fitness fatigue and strain injuries: arnica is your friend.
  • When you get some bruises or soreness, use arnica.
  • Key ingredient: arnica montana

not too expensive.

  • portage sysem makes managing, compiling, and installing software a snap.
