Final Update: Showers Pass Apex Merino Tech T-Shirt

Showers Pass Apex Merino Tech T-shirt I have thoroughly enjoyed testing the Showers Pass Apex Merino Tech T-Shirt.  Perhaps partly because I was wearing it while doing activities I enjoy, but I can truly  say the shirt performed exceptionally well and met my ever expectation.  You can read my final thoughts along with the rest of the review. by clicking here.

SAXX Blacksheep Boxers – Final Update

SAXX Blacksheep boxers

Crossing a bridge near the Walls of Jericho

I have worn the SAXX Blacksheep boxers for an additional 20 miles of hiking, running and backpacking since my last update. They have continued to perform well. My only negative is the sizing, I ordered the same size that I have in the Quest and Kinetic and the Blacksheep seem significantly larger than the other two which makes them not as comfortable on me.  Click HERE to read my final thoughts.

Final Update Swiftwick Aspire Compression Socks

Swiftwick Aspire Compression Socks

My daughter and I at the start of our backpacking trip to the Walls of Jericho in north Alabama.

Over 100 miles of hiking and hours of wearing the Aspire socks at work have shown me these socks are the real deal.  The socks are comfortable with a nice level of compression.  The socks have also proven to be durable even after high mileage from long summer running to backpacking in California and Alabama.  Click HERE for my final thoughts on these Swiftwick Aspire Socks.

ABUS YADD-1 Bike Helmet

ABUS Yadd-1 I’ll be testing the Abus Yadd-1 bike helmet over the next few months.  It is found in the urban style helmets offered by Abus.  It is designed with air flow technology to help keep the head cool.  So far it seems very comfortable and on a hot ride I could feel the airflow out the rear vent.  To read more of my initial thoughts please click here.

Sherpa Adventure Gear Khumbu Pant

Khumbu pant I consider pants one of the more important gear choices when it comes to outdoor adventures.  I want them to fit comfortably, allow complete freedom of movement and while not high on my list, looking good is a bonus.  The Khumbu pants seem to meet all the criteria so follow along as I review them.  For my initial thoughts please click here.

Final Update FuelBelt Uno

Final Update FuelBelt Uno

FuelBelt Uno while hiking the beach in Bay St. Louis Mississippi

I have put over 225 miles on the FuelBelt Uno Belt and it has performed admirably.  The durability is superb and the belt has exhibited excellent breathability during the hot and sticky New Orleans summer.  It has just enough room to carry what I needed on my runs.  Click HERE to read my final thoughts on this sweet running belt.
