I have used the Princeton Tec Axis headlamp ultra-running on the Mississippi River Levee, car camping and hiking and it has performed superbly. The headlamp has proved to be durable and the axis lighting knob is a great feature that allowed me to customize how much light I needed for my activities. Click HERE to read my full thoughts.

I kept waiting for something exciting to happen before submitting my last update but alas, living in a small town in rural Alabama did not afforded any such opportunity. Also, once the weather turned cold I did not ride a whole lot so there were fewer opportunities for theives to strike. To read the rest of my final thought please click here.
I was not familiar with Backcountry products before reviewing the KEYHOLE Hands-Free Carry System for Cameras and Binoculars by Backcountry Solutions. When I first read about the hands-free system for carrying binoculars, my first thought was “Yes, please!” I am a hiker and a birder. When I walk through the woods, I usually carry field glasses with me. I hate the feeling of having a binocular strap handing around my neck. It feels like I am being pulled forward and down. In fact, I usually carry my binoculars with the strap slung over my shoulder. That is not a secure method of transport, I know. I was excited to give the The KEYHOLE Hands-Free Carry System for Cameras and Binoculars by Backcountry Solutions a try.
The KEYHOLE Hands-Free Carry System for Cameras and Binoculars by Backcountry Solutions is basically a harness you wear over your shoulders. The keyhole system is where the binoculars (or camera) are attached to the harness. A bracket screws onto your binoculars at the tripod mount. One end of the bracket slips through the keyhole to secure the binoculars. The harness has two buckles in the front, which is how you take the system off and put it on.

I have put over 50 miles on the Salewa Mountain Trainer Boot in the past month exploring the swamps and forests of the Southeastern United States. The boots eat up muddy and rooty trails with ease and provide plenty of ankle protection. Read on for my full thoughts by clicking HERE.
I did not have to search for Winter in the Southeastern United States this year and I didn’t need to search for opportunities to use the Salewa Polartec Pedroc jacket. I used it during a 130 mile run from Baton Rouge to New Orleans, for wintery hikes at the Woodlands Conservancy and while camping in national forests in Louisiana and Missippi.
