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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Sierra Designs Women’s Hiking Tank

Sierra Designs Women’s Hiking Tank

I like wearing tank tops on hot summer days, but I don’t like  sunburnt shoulders, tell-tale tan lines, and chafing under my backpack straps. The Sierra Designs Women’s Hiking Tank covers these bases with grace and style, so I can have the protection of a tee with the freedom of a tank when I’m spending long [...]

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 [...]

Helly Hansen Women’s Pace Supportive Singlet 2 draft

Tank top weather has finally arrived here in northwestern Wyoming, and I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the Helly Hansen Women’s Pace Supportive Singlet 2, soaking up the Vitamin D while wearing it running, climbing, and for gym workouts. This weekend, I slept in and awoke to a bluebird, sunny day in the high 60’s. I put [...]

Hydrapak SoftFlask

Hydrapak SoftFlask

In a last ditch effort to get away from the frigid Rocky Mountain winter, I headed out to the Utah desert to climb some desert sandstone, run a few beautiful trails above Moab, and bask in the only sunlight I could find within 8 hours. I brought along a 12-ounce Hydrapak SoftFlask, a collapsible water [...]
