Hydroflask Growler

Hydroflask Growler

What could be better than a jug of cold water that’s still cold by the time you come off the trail? Maybe a jug of beer for the campground. Or a jug of tea for an afternoon picnic. At 64 ounces, the insulated stainless steel Growler keeps cold drinks cold for 24 hours and warm drinks [...]

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 [...]

KOR Nava Filter Water Bottle

KOR Nava Filter Water Bottle

I gave up the bottled spring water habit a long time ago, but I’m not a fan of tap water because it often tastes like chlorine. So, I was excited to test Kor’s Nava Filter Water Bottle. I give Kor high points for using natural materials, namely, coconut shells, to create their filter. According to the Kor [...]

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 [...]

Platypus SoftBottle

Platypus SoftBottle

  The more I travel, the more I try to downsize. I am trying to make “fast and light” my mantra–not just for days in the mountains but for life in general. One of the simplest ways I’ve downsized recently is with the Platypus SoftBottle, which has now permanently replaced the 1-liter hard plastic bottle [...]

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. [...]

HydroFlask Insulated Coffee and Tea Bottle

HydroFlask Insulated Coffee and Tea Bottle

The Hydro Flask 18 oz. Wide Mouth cup/bottle (not to be confused with the 12 oz., which has a different form factor) takes insulated mugs to a new level. This 18/8 stainless steel, double-wall, powder-coated vessel has held up well to almost-daily use during six months of  testing. I’m impressed because in my experience, travel [...]

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 [...]
