The Coros Linx smart cycling helmet is working great. I was a little skeptical at first but after using it for over 100 miles I find myself looking forward to using my helmet for a change. The app part is also improved with a couple of much needed recent updates. To read the rest of the update please click here.
I have used the Slumberjack Lapland 20 F on four overnight trips so far. I don’t have a lot of new information to add to what I already reported after the first overnight hike but I was able to use the bag in cooler weather. So I’ll just cut to the chase and focus on that night. To read the rest of the update please click here
Filling the Lifestraw Go at the creek
I have mostly used the Lifestraw Go on long day hikes with a waist pack. It has allowed me to stay out longer while carrying less weight in my pack. My trips were usually 3 or 4 miles and took anywhere from 2 to 3 hours. It has worked very well on the type water I have used it for. To read the rest of my update please click here.
Follow along over the next few months as I test the Thunderbolt Original Jeans. So far I’ve worn them hiking and bike riding but plan to use them for more outdoor activities. They do seem up to the task but testing will tell the whole story. To read more please click here.
