Outdoor Research Antimatter Duffel

Outdoor Research Antimatter Duffel

I’m traveling a lot this winter, and the Outdoor Research Antimatter Duffel has proven to be a lifesaver. The minimalist hauler stuffs into a pocket smaller than a sandwich bag, weighs as much as a can of soda, and is big enough to carry around a small child. What more could I want? Bringing this uber-portable pack [...]

Native Eyewear Haskill Polarized Sunglasses

Native Eyewear Haskill Polarized Sunglasses

I recently had to slog through a 22-hour drive across the center of the country, and wanted a pair of shades that would do double duty for both driving and exercise. I wanted great optics, lots of coverage across my face, and frames that would stay put while running. The Native Eyewear Haskill glasses appeared [...]

Horny Toad Rooney Dress

Horny Toad Rooney Dress

Few things are more fun than a soft, sporty cotton dress. With black boots, I’m a sassy, stylish gal. With tights, a scarf, and sensible shoes I’m a no-nonsense gal ready for outdoor adventures. Horny Toad’s Rooney Dress is my favorite this season. Made out of Horny Toad’s yummy-soft Samba material, the Rooney Dress is [...]

Platypus SoftBottle Water Bottle

Platypus SoftBottle Water Bottle

The Platypus SoftBottle fills a niche in my water bottle quiver. When space and ounces are at a premium, this soft water bottle/pouch is a reliable, collapsible container for transporting the liquid of life. The Platypus SoftBottle comes in two sizes: . .5 L (8 oz.) and  1L (10 oz.) , which, according to Platypus, [...]

Mammut MTR 141 Trail Running Shoe

Mammut MTR 141 Trail Running Shoe

Autumn might be my favorite time of year to go trail running. I love the crisp temperatures, the low sun on the horizon, the changing colors of aspen trees, and the fact that I get to test out all sorts of great trail running attire for the upcoming year. One of my favorite products this [...]

Helly Hansen Loke Jacket

Helly Hansen Loke Jacket

Earlier this summer, I co-led a wilderness adventure course for a group of 15 year-old boys, a long backpacking trip into the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming . Careful to pack only high quality gear I chose Helly Hansen’s  Loke Jacket for the trip, and it  did a fantastic job of keeping me dry, comfortable, [...]

Thermarest NeoAir XLite Mattress

Thermarest NeoAir XLite Mattress

Earlier this summer, I spent 22 days on a backpacking trip across the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming. I was very careful to only pack the most practical, high quality gear for my adventure, and needed a sleeping pad that was both lightweight and comfortable. The Thermarest NeoAir XLite Mattress was ideal thanks to its  [...]

Skora Core Minimalist Running Shoes

Skora Core Minimalist Running Shoes

Skora’s Core running shoes are the closest thing I’ve found to Ferraris made for feet. I feel like a ninja when I wear these things, probably because they make me feel faster, more nimble, and feather-footed. The Skora Core will appeal most to those of the zero drop, minimalist running ilk, and I became a [...]

Keen Revel II Boot

Keen Revel II Boot

The Keen Revel II winter hiking boots made life thoroughly enjoyable this holiday season, which I spent traipsing through Norway’s west coast. Every day I wandered through a mix of rain, deep puddles, fields of ice, and deep snow, and the Revel II boots kept my feet surprisingly happy. (Available in men’s and women’s styles.) [...]

Thermarest Antares Sleeping Bag

Thermarest Antares Sleeping Bag

The Thermarest Antares Sleeping Bag and the Thermarest NeoAir XLite Sleeping Pad are an awesome dream team for backcountry camping. I’ve used the Thermarest Antares Sleeping Bag on a few light-and-fast overnight trips. The first one of the season was in August, on a trip into Death Canyon in Grand Teton National Park, where space [...]
