Smartwool Women’s Ethno Graphic Crew Socks

Smartwool Women’s Ethno Graphic Crew Socks

As a kid, getting socks for Christmas was the biggest letdown ever. Now, it’s one of the top wishlist items. After wearing Smartwool’s Ethno Graphic Crew Socks for a few months, I want more. These colorful, thin, lightweight socks are above and beyond any casual sock I’ve ever worn. They fit perfectly, with a comfortable heel cup [...]

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 [...]

Farm To Feet Spring Creek Broken Stripe Socks

Farm To Feet Spring Creek Broken Stripe Socks

Over the past few years, I’ve been replacing my cotton socks with wool socks. Now I’ve  started allowing a few wool-blend socks in my sock drawer because they’re a bit less expensive that 100% merino wool socks but still offer similar benefits. Farm to Feet Creek Broken Strip Everyday Crew Socks are a perfect example of this [...]

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 [...]

Lowa Tempest Mesh Shoe

Lowa Tempest Mesh Shoe

Lowa’s Tempest Mesh Shoe is a versatile, lightweight, nimble trail and travel shoe designed for warm weather. Made out of a mesh and leather upper, the Tempest Mesh Shoe is very breathable. My feet don’t tend to get that hot (poor circulation!), but I did notice when wearing these shoes that the mesh upper and [...]

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 [...]

Ridgemont Outfitters Mesa Oiled Suede Shoes

Ridgemont Outfitters Mesa Oiled Suede Shoes

I have several shelves of hiking, running, skiing, biking, walking, boating, gardening, climbing, and soccer shoes in my gear room, all standing ready for duty like short, sturdy soldiers. So many shoes–so many fun things to do! For a fast weekend trip to the in-laws I moved a new pair of  Ridgemont Outfitters Mesa Oiled Suede shoes into active [...]

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. [...]

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 [...]

FITS Women’s Light Ski OTC Sock

FITS Women’s Light Ski OTC Sock

I skied for two weeks in Europe with one pair of socks: FITS Women’s Light Ski OTC Sock socks. They were fabulously comfortable, and kept my feet warm and dry. Made out of a merino wool, nylon, spandex blend, the FITS Women’s Light Ski OTC Sock have a great design. They’re fitted in the toe, heel and shin. [...]
