Showers Pass Apex Merino Wool Tech T-Shirt

Follow along as I review the Showers Pass Apex Merion Tech T-Shirt.  It arrived just in time for some hot and muggy Alabama summer weather.  It feels so soft and comfortable it’s hard to believe it has any wool in it.   To read my initial impressions please click here.

Update: Blackstone Griddle Review

The Blackstone Griddle has performed as advertised.  It is easy to cook on and I like that I can generally cook an entire meal at one time.  Seasoning and cleaning was a bit of a chore at first but has become easier, and the griddle is easily transportable, but maybe not in the way Blackstone envisioned.  Click HERE to read my full update on my Blackstone Griddle Review.

Olight H1R Nova Headlamp Initial Impressions

Olight H1R Nova Headlamp Initial Impressions

Olight has provided this reviewer with one Olight H1R Nova headlamp for review purposes.  Additional information can be obtained directly from Olight at their WEBSITE.  My first experience with Olight’s products stemmed from getting involved with the hammock camping community here in the NorthEast.  A number of fellow hammock enthusiasts sported these headlamps which reminded me of the military MX991 right angle flashlights I remember using as a kid.  Except these Olight headlamps were TINY and super bright!!  Purchasing one has been on my list for some time and when given the opportunity to review one I jumped at the chance.

PATH project reviews – Initial thoughts on their running kit

PATH projects reviews

PATH projects Cascade SS T-Shirt courtesy of their website.

PATH projects is a new company formed in 2015 after the founder, Scott Bailey had spent years running but had been unsatisfied with apparel offered by other companies, especially shorts. The foundation of PATH projects is simple – highest quality apparel, direct to consumer and their foundation piece is their layering system for their shorts – a separate liner and short for the perfect combination. They offer liner and regular shorts, short and long sleeve shirts and various hats.  I am reviewing the following items

Tahoe CL 5” baseliner and the Sykes PX short

Final Update – Native Eyewear Catamount Glasses

Native Eyewear Catamount glasses

Caddying for Birdies for the Brave at the Zurich Classic

I have worn the Native Eyewear Catamount glasses for over 225 miles of golfing, running, hiking and backpacking.  They have performed exceptionally. The visual acuity is clear and crisp; they are so light I forget that I have them on; and I haven’t broke them, so the durability is top notch.  Click HERE to read my final thoughts on this pair of glasses.
