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 [...]

Gerber Freescape Camp Kitchen Kit

Gerber Freescape Camp Kitchen Kit

Blackened pots, burnt eyebrows, spilled coffee, bland oatmeal. Camp kitchen tragedies take many shapes and forms, but I’ve recently discovered that one of the most common is also highly avoidable. With the Gerber Freescape Camp Kitchen Kit, dull knives and coarsely chopped camp cuisine have become a thing of the past for me. My camp [...]

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 [...]

Gerber E-Z Out Jr Serrated Knife

Gerber E-Z Out Jr Serrated Knife

I’ve never thought of myself as a knife person. I’m more of a multi-tool gal. But on a recent urban vacation in California, I found myself using my Gerber E-Z Out Jr Serrated Knife almost every day. Since I was gone for almost six weeks, I received several packages (gear to test) during my stay, and [...]

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 [...]

Bogs Plimsoll Prince of Wales High Boot

Bogs Plimsoll Prince of Wales High Boot

I live in rubber boots, and can’t imagine wearing any footwear but a Bogs boot. When it comes to comfortable footwear for wet weather and surfaces, Bogs have perfected the rubber boot, making it comfortable, durable, and attractive. I own a yacht detailing company and a horse, so if I’m not working on a boat, [...]

Ahnu Waterproof Sugarpine Shoe

Ahnu Waterproof Sugarpine Shoe

In Ahnu’s Waterproof Sugarpine Shoe I’ve found both a nimble trail shoe and a sturdy but sleek urban shoe. Traipsing between city and trail as often as I do, it’s a relief to find a shoe that does double duty. I have a lot of foot injuries, so I tend to prefer heavy, clunky footwear [...]
