Home for the night
I used the Slumberjack Lapland 20 F on a 3 day 2 night trip along the Pinhoti Trail in east central Alabama. It turned out to be rather warm for January but I managed to get the bag wet. Did I mention we saw some storms… Anyways, the sleeping bag performed nicely, even when wet. To read the rest of the update please click here.
Getting a drink from the Lifestraw Go
I don’t have a lot to add this time so I’ll just relate how I used the Lifestraw Go on my most recent hike. It works really well but I still find it easier to drink from a regular water bottle. Which makes sence since the water in the Go is being filtered on the go, or is that in the Go…. To read the rest of the update please click here.
I have now worn the Thunderbolt jeans during several different activities and temperature ranges. I like them a lot. To read why please click here.
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.
