Backpacking in the Kisatchie National Forest
The Gregory Paragon backpack has been put to the test over the past couple months backpacking in Mississippi and Louisiana. It has seen rain, sunshine and humidity and even some cold days and has performed well. Click HERE for my full update.
I used the Tailwind Nutrition for several long day hikes, and a couple of overnight hikes. I only used it on one long ElliptiGo ride, I kept busting spokes on what seemed like every other ride and finally sold it. So while not an ultra runner or athlete by any stretch of the imagination, my goal was to find out how well it helped me maintain my energy and if it would keep me from having cramps afterwards. I am pleased to say it did a very good job for both. To read my final thoughts please click here.
Hiking in the Kisatchie National Forest while wearing the SAXX Quest 2.0 Boxers
Well, I admit it, I am converted. SAXX boxers have become my favorite underwear. I have used them while backpacking, camping, and hiking, and they are durable, funk free, and comfortable. Read my full final review HERE.
Filtering water with the Katadyn BeFree while running in Alaska
I have continued to use the Katadyn BeFree filter over the past couple months on a couple more backpacking trips. Durability has been great over the past couple months with no issues, but ease of use, well it is still easy to use, but there were some hiccups. Click HERE to read my final update.
Swiss Advance Crono N5
I have carried the Swiss Advance Crono N5 knife for the last month or so, and I really like how handy this little knife is. The tools are useful in a pickle, and the knife blade is sharp and big enough for standard camp tasks like cutting stuff for meal prep. Read on for my full thoughts on the Swiss Advance Crono N5 knife.

Two months with the Smartwool Backpacker Tee and I can say it’s one of the best that I have ever worn. I’ve worn it backpacking, running, at the gym and around town. Click here to see my thoughts on this shirt’s superpowers as well as how well it plays with dogs.
