Blackburn Central 700 Front Light

Blackburn Central 700 Front Light

The only  bonus of darkness falling by five o’clock is that I get to use my Blackburn Central 700 Front Light more hours a day! I love this versatile, high-beam LED light because it’s so bright and so easy to use. The Blackburn Central 700 Front Light’s dual beam provides both distance and close-up visibility. I can see items clearly even a [...]

Petzel Tikka Headlamp

Petzel Tikka Headlamp

Petzl’s latest iteration of the super-classic Tikka series packs a ton of light into a lightweight, affordable package. This no-frills headlamp, weighing in at just three ounces, (including 3-AAA batteries) sports a big, glove-friendly on/off switch and two brightness levels. An advertised 100-lumen output (high setting) gave me a wide pool of light for performing [...]

Nite Ize Steelie Desk and Dash System

Nite Ize Steelie Desk and Dash System

One of the things I’ve come to dread about traveling is figuring out how to get my phone at eye-level while driving a rental car. I’ve recently started using the inventive Nite Ize Steelie system, and now my old school car-model-specific cradle is being threatened with obsolescence. Here’s how the Nite Ize Steelie Desk and Dash [...]

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 [...]

Niteize ZipLIT LED Zipper Pull Light

Niteize ZipLIT LED Zipper Pull Light

The Niteize ZipLIT LED zipper pull light is so functional; I’ve been using it on all my gear. The little light in the Niteize ZipLIT LED zipper pull lasts a long time, so I can leave the light on while it’s attached to something I need to find in the dark, such as a tent [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
