Ibex Izzi Tack Pant

Ibex Izzi Tack Pant

I’ve been waiting for Ibex’s Izzi Tack Pant for a long time. I wanted a pant that was body-hugging like my old Sporthill running pants but not tight like a pair of running tights. And, of course, made out of merino wool. Ibex’s Izzi Tack Pant makes the cut. Designed like an equestrian pant, the [...]

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 [...]

Stio Women’s Dulcet Pant

Stio Women’s Dulcet Pant

I admit: I’ve lusted after Stio’s Women’s Dulcet Pant for years, so when I had the chance to review a pair I was very excited. Just as I’d expected from the images on the Stio website, the Dulcet pant is both stylish and sporty, super sleek paired with a dark grey top for downtown outings 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 [...]

Onzie Skull Capri Pant

Onzie Skull Capri Pant

Onzie’s skull print capri pant is just what I needed to spice up my workout routine. The skull print keeps me in touch with my dark side, my favorite holiday, and a Dead concert back in the early 80’s. I like the silky feel of the lightweight material, and really appreciate the extra wide fabric waistband [...]

Columbia Women’s Saturday Trail™ II Knee Pant

Columbia Women’s Saturday Trail™ II Knee Pant

I live in a temperate climate, so it’s often a bit too cold for shorts and a bit too warm for pants during the shoulder seasons.  I’m a big fan of knee pants, but hadn’t found a pair I liked until I tested Columbia’s Women’s Saturday Trail™ II Knee Pant. Made out of a soft, [...]

Stio Women’s CFS Board Crop Pant

Stio Women’s CFS Board Crop Pant

I’m not even a beach person, and I can’t stop wearing Stio’s Women’s CFS Board Crop pant! I love the wide waistband that never binds or curls. It’s very comfortable, and allows me to wear the pant low on my hips if I want; the waistband stays put. There’s also a drawstring in the waistband if I want a [...]

Mountain Khaki Camber 107 Pant

Mountain Khaki Camber 107 Pant

I recently fled a rainy spring in Jackson Hole, WY for a combo beach getaway on the north shore of Kauai and a wedding weekend in San Francisco. I like to travel lightly, and took only two pairs of pants for a trip that promised to pack a huge variety of activities. I selected my Mountain Khaki Men’s Camber [...]

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. [...]
