Final Update: Wolverine Creek Bed

wolverine creek bed shoes I don’t have a lot to add but, now that the shoes have a few more months of wear I can safely say that they are the best shoe I have ever used for my activities that involve lots of water.  This has included more hikes to the holler and subsequent wading around in the creek as well as several more kayaking trips.  To read the rest of the update along with the entire review please click here.

I have now worn the Wolverine Creek Bed shoes on numerous occasions on varying types of terrain.  They have worked really great in all situations so far.  I have continued to wear them on my exercise hikes to the holler.  I also wore them while backpacking and on a kayaking trip.  To read the rest of the update along with the entire review please click here.

Final Update: Injinji Lightweight Mini-Crew

Despite the shrinking, I have continued to wear the Injinji Lightweight Mini-Crew socks about twice a week. I don’t think they have shrunk anymore.  I did wear them 2 days straight once more during the test, included an overnight in my hammock.  I put them on on a Thursday morning as I got ready for a canoeing trip in Mississippi.  I was wearing a different pair of FiveFingers this time because I recently bought some Sprints for water use.  Anyways, I drove to Montgomery Al to pick up another guy and then we both drove on over and camped on Black Creek for the night so we could be at the canoe outfitter early Friday morning.  To read the rest of the update please click here.

Update: Injinji Lightweight Mini-Crew sock

Since getting the Injinji Lightweight Mini-Crew socks about 6 weeks ago I have worn them at least twice and sometimes three times a week, so I estimate I have around 15 days total in them so far.  I even wore them 2 days in a row once to test the socks ability to handle odor.  The weather during the month of July was exceptionally hot but it has cooled down quite a bit in the past couple of weeks with highs only in the low to mid 90’s F.  Anyways, they are holding up rather well so far.  To read the rest of the update click here.

Ever wonder what a  toesock might look like.   Think glove sock and you are on the right track because each toe has its own, shall we say, pocket it fits in.  According to Ininji, this translates into better performance by allowing the foot to perform naturally and freely inside any shoe, much like going barefoot.  Injinja says a toesock is more like wearing a glove while regular socks are more like a mitten, so while regular socks are warmer, the toe socks allow for more dexterity.  They also claim that having each toe in its own compartment helps eliminate hotspots, blisters, moisture buildup and transfer of fungal conditions.  To read the rest of the review click here.

Camelbak Ultra LR hydration vest

Camelbak Ultra LR front view coy Over the next few months I will be reviewing the Camelbak Ultra LR.  This hydration pack is designed for the runner, or more specifically, the long distance runner.  However, besides the fact that it is designed to ride very snugly and with little movement, it has several other features which I think will be good for bike riding and day hiking.  Please click here to read the rest of the review.
