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.
Life has been hectic, but I have been able to use the Gregory Paragon pack on two more backpacking trips since my last update – a week long trip with Big City Mountaineers in California and a long weekend trip along the Alabama-Tennessee border. The Paragon has performed spectacularly – comfort is top-notch; the pack is durable; and it can swallow all my gear including a bear canister and over a week’s worth of food.

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.
