Final Update – Sisu Sleeping Bag by Sakari Gear

I was skeptical on how the Sisu Sleeping Bag by Sakari Gear would perform but after 13 nights of use with multiple nights in the upper 30s I can say with certainty that this bag kept me warm and toasty.  It is heavy but has proved to durable, and at $70, has a price that is hard to beat.  You can read my final thoughts HERE.

I have worn the Montane Viper Hoodie almost constantly for the past month, and I have to say that it is as good as advertised.  It is super soft and breathable that I almost forget I am wearing it.  Durability appears to be superb and the jacket is an excellent mid-layer for a variety of activities.  Click HERE for my first update on the Montane Viper Hoodie.

Enjoying a laugh during a rest break with Big City Mountaineers in Redwoods SP.

I have used and abused the PATH projects base liner and shorts for the past 5 months, and I am impressed.  They have seen hot and humid days running on the Mississippi River Levee in New Orleans and goldilocks weather in Greece as I ran the Authentic Athens Marathon.  Their system is comfortable, durable and functional whether hiking or running.  Read my final thoughts HERE.
