ABUS YADD-1 Bike Helmet

ABUS Yadd-1 I’ll be testing the Abus Yadd-1 bike helmet over the next few months.  It is found in the urban style helmets offered by Abus.  It is designed with air flow technology to help keep the head cool.  So far it seems very comfortable and on a hot ride I could feel the airflow out the rear vent.  To read more of my initial thoughts please click here.

Showers Pass Apex Tech T-Shirt Update

Showers Pass Apex Tech T-shirt I have really enjoyed wearing the Showers Pass Apex Tech T-Shirt so far.  It is fast becoming one of my favorites for bike riding and is a great hiking shirt as well.  It has been very humid this summer and I was able to test the wicking ability of the shirt to the max.  To read all my thoughts so far please click here.

HydraPac Stow 1L Update

I have been using the HydraPac Stow 1L while overnight backpacking as well as while day hiking for exercise.  It has worked well but I did find it more difficult to get in and out of the side water bottle pockets on my backpack and from the water bottle pockets on my waist pack or vest.
