Be Prepared for Anything with Coleman Repellent and First Aid Outdoor Products

Be Prepared for Anything with Coleman Repellent and First Aid Outdoor Products

Reviewed by Susie, Coleman Repellent Products and Coleman First Aid Products provided by Coleman for the purpose of this review

Coleman Outdoor Products If you are like me, you grew up with a trusty Coleman stove and/or lantern every time you had outdoor activities planned. You had them because they lasted forever (I know because mine are still going all these years later). But did you know that Coleman also makes a wide range of repellent and first aid products? No? Me neither! So I was super excited to receive this HUGE set of Coleman Repellent and First Aid Outdoor Products from Coleman from their Coleman Repellent Products and Coleman First Aid Products lineup to review. From insect repellent (both with and without DEET) to gear insect repellent to super compact first aid kits, they have something for everything that you may need for your outdoor activities. Click here to check out the first chapter of my review of these awesome Coleman Repellent and First Aid Outdoor Products and be sure to follow along to read all about them as I try it all out.

An Ode to My Love of Skout Organic Trail Bars

Reviewed by Susie, Skout organic trail bars provided by Skout for the purpose of this review

I’m sad. So very sad. Because my last Skout Organic Trail Bar that Skout sent for to review has been devoured.  And I won’t have any more until the mail woman delivers them to me. As I lament their absence from my trail life, I wrote a little ditty about just how tasty they are. And, if you are feeling like a kareoke rockstar, you can sing along with me.

Chaco Men’s Outcross Lace shoes

 Chaco Men’s Outcross Lace shoes

 

I am a bit late mainly because of events that I needed to deal with. I continues doing more of what I reported in my last report but also started hiking in Harold Parker State Forest in my Chaco Man’s Outcross Lace shoes.  As a result of having a gout attack I ended up trying something different which I will get into later in this report.  The walkway I mentioned in my last report is now in the finishing stages. Adding powered stone between the cement blocks seems like an endless task, the stone dust settles especially after a rain and could use a small amount added every day. I needed a shoe that was light, flexible, and comfortable.   To read more please click here.

 

Ultimate Direction Jurek Endure Final Report

I have continued to test the Jurek Endure over the past month, but have had limited use due to a sprained ankle.  Overall, I am pleased with the hydration belt and will continue to use it after my ankle heals and I can resume my long distance running.

Mountain Khakis Granite Creek convertible pants

The Mountain Khakis Granite Creek convertible pants were provided for review purposes.   I am finally getting to write about my last look at the Mountain Khakis Granite Creek convertible pants. I have continued to wear these pants almost daily. The weather has been hot and humid, making it very difficult to be comfortable. I have been hiking in the Harold Parker State Forrest a couple times a month. There are weekly hikes run by the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DRC). These hikes are on Wednesday mornings at 10 am and last for about 2 hours.   To read more please click here.
