Baffin Inferno without the Disco

Baffin Inferno Top and Bottom Layer

Baffin Inferno Top and Bottom Layer

Layering has been long recommended as a way to maintain appropriate body temperature, no matter what the weather conditions throw at you.  These new Baffin Inferno base layers, might just be the perfect solution!  So far, I’ve found them to be comfortable and ‘just right’ as far as temperature control.  Our weather has been a bit warmer than usual, but I’m sure that’ll change soon – it is Maine after all.  To read the first part of my review, with description, click HERE.

Baffin provided the Inferno Top and Bottom Layers for review purposes.

Rain Jacket, Minus the Rain

STIO Environ rain jacket I received the STIO Women’s Environ jacket for review purposes.  Other than wearing a few times more as a wind breaker, I haven’t had many opportunities  to wear it. No rain, no real need for a rain jacket. We’ve hardly had any rain, and no snow yet at all.  The jacket has so many features though, that I have plenty to write about.  Check out the initial review HERE, and then check back in about a month for more thoughts on the jacket.  I’m sure our Maine weather will be cooperating by then….

Update: United by Blue The Ultimate American Sock

IMG_1869 After a month of almost constant wear, I’m happy to report that my United by Blue, Ultimate American bison down socks are holding up well – and are even more comfortable than when they were new.  We haven’t had much cold weather yet, but the socks have done well to keep my feet comfortable – and not too warm! Check out my update HERE.

Socks were provided for review purposes by United by Blue

Update: HydroFlask

Check out the update for the 18 oz HydroFlask.  Its been keeping my food and drinks warm while I wait for winter to get to Northern New England.  I’m enjoying the nice weather, but its made reviewing some things a bit interesting.  Read what I’ve found out so far HERE.

The HydroFlask was supplied for review purposes.

Who’s Calling?

Inside of case “For the Explorer in All of Us”

Keep your phone safe, and charged and you won’t have to wonder – just answer the phone!  There is nothing more frustrating than a phone that is bulky, slippery, or hard to hold on to. Unless of course its a tangled up charging cord.

I’m trying out the Lander Powell iPhone case and Neve charging cable.   Read the first part of the review HERE

Winterin’ in Winter Harbor

Sperry Women's Winter Harbor Boot

Sperry Women’s Winter Harbor Boot

Boots that is.  Warm, waterproof, stylish boots. Sperry sent a pair of Women’s Winter Harbor Boots for review purposes.  Now, all I need is some winter weather. Its getting colder in Maine, but no snow yet, and barely any rain.  Read the first part of my review, then check back in about a month for my thoughts on the boots after I get some real use.  Its Maine, it has to snow in December, right??
