I honestly don’t think much about the fashion sense of the gear that I use to run, hike or hit the gym in. I grab what has functioned in the past and use that. Rhone is a company that wants to change that. They advertise that they make “men’s premium activewear engineered with principle, performance and progress for the modern man.” I will be reviewing the Rhone Mako Short over the next several months to see if they truly bridge the gap between performance and fashion.

One of the most essential pieces of any backpacking kit is the actual backpack that I am using. This is a make or break piece of equipment. I was fortunate enough to be selected to review High Sierra’s new Pathway 70L pack over the next several months.

I have continued to use the Thunderbolt Sportswear Marly T for my outdoor adventures over the past month or so and it has performed admirably. Comfort remains on point, durability is good and the smell factor is still nonexistent for the most part even after 4 days of backpacking in unseasonably warm temperatures in Central Alabama. There is some minor fabric pulls in the cuffs of the sleeves and a coffee stain that won’t seem to wash out, but these are rather minor annoyances for an amazing shirt. Read on for my final thoughts.
