Ottolock bike lock

Ottolock bike lock Unfortunately, bike locks are needed in this day and age.  Perhaps they were needed early on in the history of bikes but were not readily available.   The only problem, most bike locks are either heavy and bulky or small but not very effective.  Which is where the Ottolock enters the game.  A lock designed by cyclists who demand a lightweight but effective theft deterrent.  I’ll be testing one for the next few months.  To read my initial thoughts please click here.

Final Update: Coros Linx smart cycling helmet

I was hoping to have a lot more miles under my belt (0r lid) before submitting my final update for the Coros Linx but alas, I discovered I am a fair weather rider. I did not ride any in December and since then I’ve only managed 6 rides. However, I continue to be impressed with the Coros Linx smart cycling helmet.  To read the rest of my final update please click here.

High Sierra Tokopah 6.0 hydration pack

High Sierra Tokopah 6.0 I will be reviewing the High Sierra Tokopah 6.0 hydrationpack for the next few months.  It features a 2 L reservoir and a handy place to store a helmet.  There is enough room in the pack for a rain jacket and other essential gear I might need on a bike ride or day hike.

Final Update: Mazama Windigo 3L bladder

Mazama Windigo 100L I have thorougly enjoyed using the Mazama Windigo 3L bladder.  It really shinned on a recent hiking trip on the Pinhoti Trail.  I found it not only easy to drink from but keeping it clean was a breeze. To read the rest of my thoughts please click here.

Mazama Windigo 3L Reservoir Update

Mazama Windigo 3L reservoir The Mazama Windigo 3L Reservoir has worked really well for the applications I managed to use It for.  This would be mostly for backpacking but I also used it on a kayaking trip and actually drank more water from it then than when hiking.  To read the rest of the update please click here.

TOPO Athletic Oterro

TOPO Athletic Oterro sole The TOPO Athletic Oterro is an interesting looking shoe.  The website says it is “Light, rugged and versatile – the Oterro’s aggressive outsole easily sheds mud and dirt, while providing traction over a variety of surfaces. Don’t let the light and breathable upper fool you, the Oterro was built for rugged terrain and outdoor adventures”   I would personally classify it as a heavy duty minimalist trial running/hiking shoe.
