Update: Blacksheep boxers by SAXX

Blacksheep boxers by SAXX

Enjoying the view from the observation tower at Grand Isle State Park.

I have worn the Blacksheep boxers by SAXX while hiking around Southeastern Louisiana and camping on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.  The boxers are super comfortable and seem to be durable and, most importantly, smell-free even after several consecutive days of wear.  Click HERE for my full update.

Update Helle Bleja Knife

Update Helle Bleja Knife

Making breakfast in Grand Isle LA

I have carried the Helle Bleja knife daily over the past couple of months in addition to carrying it while hiking and camping across southeastern Louisiana and the Gulf Coast of Mississippi.  The knife has remained sharp and easy to use whether I am cutting line to make new guy outs for a fly or slicing cheese and venison links while making dinner. Check out my thoughts HERE.

Final Update Epson ProSense 57 GPS Watch

Relaxing at camp

I have used the Epson watch another couple of months with an additional 250 plus miles of usage on the watch in addition to every day usage.  I used the watch while running two marathons – and the battery life last the whole race even though I was pushing 5 hours and 30 minutes at the Oklahoma City Marathon.  The durability continues to be excellent.  Overall, I like the watch – Click HERE for my final thoughts.

First look at the CGear Sandlite Mat

Every now and then a new product stands out and I want to learn more about it.  I first saw the CGear Sandlite sand free mat at the Winter 2018 Outdoor Retailer show and it intrigued me. It is specifically woven to allow sand to flow from the top of the mat to the bottom but it doesn’t let sand come up from the bottom.  Backpacking and Camping in the south means I have an abundance of sandy campsites to choose from and I thought the Sandlite Sand Free mat would be a good addition to my kit.  Read all of my initial thoughts HERE.
