Stio Men’s Skycrest Insulated Snap Shirt

Stio Men’s Skycrest Insulated Snap Shirt

My every day jacket just got replaced by an every day shirt. Stio’s Men’s Skycrest Insulated Snap Shirt is my new go-to cover for every type of weather from cool fall days to drizzly cold winterish days. Made out of Pertex® Microlight Minirip Nylon shell and insulated with 60g of Thermore® Ecodown® synthetic insulation, this [...]

Kari Traa Spyta Beanie

Kari Traa Spyta Beanie

Usually when I think of a beanie, I think of a snug, head-hugging cap, but Kari Traa’s Spyta Beanie is all about slouch and style. Made out of a fun chunky knitted acrylic (that feels like wool), the Spyta Beanie is lined with a soft fleecey fabric. It’s been a great workout hat in freezing [...]

Outdoor Research Helium II Jacket

Outdoor Research Helium II Jacket

Weighing in at a mere 5.5 ounces, Outdoor Research’s Helium II 2.5-layer waterproof jacket makes the perfect gift for the gram-counting outdoorsy-type on your gift list. This wispy topper has most of the features you’d expect from a much-heavier piece: a full-length zipper, drawcord-adjustable hood, and a chest pocket. It lacks handwarmer pockets, though in [...]

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 [...]

Kari Traa Moguls Beanie Hat

Kari Traa Moguls Beanie Hat

The Kari Traa Moguls Beanie is a great hat for a cold weather. I’ve been wearing it most days now that the temperatures in the mountains is getting down to freezing at night. The Moguls Beanie is thick enough to keep my head warm on really cold days (near freezing). I’ve been wearing it for light hikes [...]

Stio Women’s Second Light Jacket

Stio Women’s Second Light Jacket

Summer in the mountains requires preparation. Hot, cold, sun, storms, and bugs–any of these factors can make or break a summertime adventure or tip the scales from fun to not-so-fun. I always try to do my best to plan ahead and account for these factors, having learned from past experience that I’m a heat and [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
