OLIGHT is a Chinese company that makes fine lighting products with multiple uses from everyday to hunting and tactical applications. They state that their mission is to provide quality illumination products to everyone. Their website is laid out well giving the user the ability to see lights based on their intended use. I will be reviewing their newly released M1T Raider flashlight. You can read my full review here.

Xero Shoes TerraFlex Review
The Xero Shoes TerraFlex have performed well over the past several months. I was able to use them for daily walks, hiking and even a beach half marathon. The shoes have performed well in all conditions. They definitely take getting used to, but I find them to be comfortable. Durability also seems to be great even after over 100 miles of use. You can read my entire update here.
One of the best things about reviewing gear is the ability to try out new products and learn about new companies. One of the new companies is Sakari Gear. Sakari Gear’s “goal is to be able to provide great quality outdoor gear at a great price, while creating a meaningful social impact.” Their first product is the Sisu Sleeping bag which I have the good fortune of reviewing. You can read my initial thoughts on the Sisu Sleeping bag HERE.
I was able to test out the GSI Stainless Camper in a different setting than I am used to. A trip to the South Carolina coast offered the chance to fry up a little bit of fresh caught seafood. This cook and eating set has been a blast to test and I have some final thoughts that you can check out by clicking here.
I am usually so busy writing reviews of gear sent to me that I don’t find the time to write a review of gear I bought. However, I have been so impressed with the Warbonnet Thunderfly that I carved out the necessary time. Lets just say I really like this hammock fly. But to read all about it click here.
The ROVR Products RollR cooler started the same way that many ideas do – because of a problem. Tired of carrying gear from their car to their campsite they thought there had to be a better way, and the RollR cooler was born. ROVR products has an easy to navigate website with videos explaining their products.
I will be reviewing the Colorado RollR 85 in the summer heat of New Orleans and the deep south this summer. ROVR products calls it “An 85-quart carrying, all-terrain attacking, patented design that can go anywhere you can.” The RollR 85 retails for $449.
