E-Case iSeries Waterproof iPhone Case

Raise your hand if you’ve ever cracked, soaked, run over, or otherwise damaged your expensive smartphone. Anyone out there? Let’s face it, we are our own worst enemies when it comes to keeping our smartphones intact. I bring mine everywhere, so  there are infinite number of ways to trash it while in the outdoors.  For me  [...]

Icebug’s DTS BUGrip OutDry running shoes allow dedicated trail runners to keep on running, even when most people opt to hunker down indoors to let the storm pass.

Rickshaw Commuter 2.1 Messenger Bag

Rickshaw Commuter 2.1 Messenger Bag

I’ve always been a fan of Rickshaw Bagworks, so I was excited to test the Commuter 2.1 Messenger Bag. It’s loaded with pockets and sleeves for my portable office, and even better, I got to design the bag myself. I’m usually an all-black person; I just think black looks cooler than color. But I’ve been [...]

Helly Hansen Paris Parka

Helly Hansen Paris Parka

I have one thing to say about winter. If you’re cold, you’re not wearing the right jacket. Also, the right jacket is Helly Hansen’s Paris Parka. (This is a women’s jacket; an equivalent jacket for men is the Coastal Parka.) I wore this jacket every day in temperatures between 20 degrees F and -15 degrees [...]

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.) [...]
