Berghaus VapourLight Hydroloft Reversible Hoody

Berghaus VapourLight Hydroloft Reversible Hoody

I discovered a new outdoor apparel brand a couple of months ago, Berghaus, from Britain. They sent us the VapourLight Hydroloft Reversible Hoody to review, but I didn’t take a very close look at it at the time since it was still summer. Fast forward a few months, and this ultra lightweight jacket has become  the [...]

Blundstone Super 550 Series Black & Red Boot

Blundstone Super 550 Series Black & Red Boot

How fun is it that an Australian work boot is stylish footwear here in the states? I’m a big fan of Blundstone boots for their fit, comfort, and durability. Now, with the red and black #1316 boot, I’m also a fan for their subtle style. With red stitching, elastic side panels, and soles, the #1316 boot, part [...]

Blundstone Black Safety Ankle Boots

Blundstone Black Safety Ankle Boots

I’ve never worn safety boots since writing doesn’t required steel-toed footwear, but with a big move coming up, I was happy to lug boxes and furniture for a few days wearing Blundstone’s Black Safety Ankle Boots (#142). Right out of the box the boots felt comfortable, and I didn’t need any break-in time. The Black [...]

I have many iPod speakers, and a few wireless speakers, but the Outdoor Tech Turtle Shell 2 Wireless Speaker is the only one that gets to travel with me. It’s tough, rugged carapace and super modern design are just two reasons it makes the cut. It’s also fun to use because:  it talks to me [...]

BlackRapid Kick

BlackRapid Kick

A Camera Sling Designed for Women I love the idea of camera slings for hiking and urban walking, but have found them uncomfortable and usually not ergonomic enough for my larger, busty stature. The new womens-specific Blackrapid Kick sling promised to address my main need–wanting to be able to walk without the whole setup bouncing. [...]

Ultimate Ears Boom: Portable Audio in a Killer Package

Ultimate Ears Boom: Portable Audio in a Killer Package

Portable, Bluetooth-enabled speakers have become ubiquitous. They make having high-quality tuneage possible virtually wherever I go. The downside is that there are now so many on the market that it’s tough to know where to start. I picked up a UE Boom after hearing a friend’s crank out crisp, clear tunes in an outdoor setting—exactly where [...]

Biore Combination Skin Balancing Cleanser

Biore Combination Skin Balancing Cleanser

My facial cleanser needs to do one thing for me – deep clean my face so that it actually feels clean and smooth when I’m done. I’ve recently been using the Biore Combination Skin Balancing Cleanser, and it definitely does that job well. The Biore Combination Skin Balancing Cleanser is oil-free, and isn’t supposed to [...]

E-Case iSeries Waterproof iPhone Case

Raise your hand if you’ve ever cracked, soaked, run over, or otherwise damaged your expensive smartphone. Anyone out there? Let’s face it, we are our own worst enemies when it comes to keeping our smartphones intact. I bring mine everywhere, so  there are infinite number of ways to trash it while in the outdoors.  For me  [...]

I have a lot of small gadgets and devices, and now, thanks to the Chums Holster, I can keep them close and ready for action. Made out of fleece-lined heavy duty ballistic nylon, the Chums Holster has a nice flat profile and a simple clip I can use to attach the holster to my belt or to [...]

ArmPocket Ultra i-35 Armband

ArmPocket Ultra i-35 Armband

Whether I’m exercising, just at home cleaning, or working on projects, I like to have my phone nearby so I don’t miss important calls or texts. Most women’s clothing doesn’t seem to have pockets big enough for the larger cell phones these days, and I don’t actually want to put my phone in a pocket [...]
