[sn] super,natural Men’s M Base LS 175 base layer Update

The M BASE LS 175 was provided by [sn] super.natural for review purposes.

The weather has gone from seasonably mild to very cold and snowy. It would not surprise me if records are set in this area this year. The [sn] super.natural M BASE LS 175 has been with me most of the time. I have worn it at some point for all my activities which I will discus below.  To read more please click here.

Oboz Traverse Low Bdry hiking shoes

The Traverse Low Bdry hiking shoes were provided by Oboz for review purposes.

The company was founded in Bozeman, Montana in the year 2007. The company was founded by people who had been working for brand name companies and decided that their main principle in designing and making shoes would be “True to the Trail”. I like it when I learn that the people who design the product actually use the product they are designing. I suggest going to their web site to learn more about the company. They are making an effort to be ecologically sound by using wind power. Also, most employees commute by bike, and they plant a tree for every pair of shoes sold.

Hillsound Ultra Trail Crampons

The Ultra Trail Crampons were provided by Hillsound for review purposes.

Since this is the first appearance of Hillsound on our web site I did some research on the company as I had not heard of it before. It is a company founded in Vancouver, BC Canada. They were founded by a group of outdoor enthusiasts who wanted to provide a reliable affordable product. The mission of the company is customer satisfaction. In addition to the Ultra Trail Crampon Hillsound has several models of crampons  and in 2012 they introduced a line of gaiters.  To  read more.
