To me MICROspikes are like an insurance policy, most of the time you don’t need them.  When the need arises I am very glad to have them in my pocket.  This past winter season has been mostly a lot of snow and not many occasions to need this kind of traction.

Final Update: MSR Women’s Lightning Axis Snowshoes

Round Valley California It has been snowing in the mountians of Southern California this past month and I got to take the Lightning Axis Snowshoes out for two day trips near Big Bear California.

I love these snowshoes!  I have finally found snowshoes that are comfortable, quick/easy to put on, and that can correct my snowshoeing toe in gait pattern.

See why I love the MSR Lightning Axis Snowshoes here.

There are a few items of clothing that are almost iconic among  outdoorsman.   The Woolrich Stag wool shirt certainly fits in this category.   I guess it should be no big surprise since Woolrich has been making outdoor gear for over 180 years.  But I would say calling the Woolrich Stag shirt a shirt is a little misleading. In fact I have owned a few wool shirts over the years and was a little surprised at how thick and heavy this one is.  Of course this can be a good thing in cold weather but regardless, I’d say it is more jacket than shirt.  To read the rest of the review please click here.
