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.

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.

Timber Ridge provided the XL Padded Zero Gravity chair for review.

Timber Ridge XL Padded Zero Gravity chair

This period has been hot, hazy and humid. Hot here is high 80s to high 90s. Along with a humidity of 85-90%. I will look at the cup holder, and how I used the Timber Ridge XL Padded Zero Gravity chair.

Being left-handed, I noticed the mounting hardware for the cup is on the right side. The cup holder mounting bracket is mounted on a support arm. It appears the support arm on the right and left side are the same. This is not a big deal, but having the option of a cup holder on the left would be nice for left-handed people and those who have lost of their right hand. To read more please click here.
