I reviewed the SAXX Quest 2.0 a while back and really liked them. So we approached SAXX to see if we could review their a pair of underwear from their BlackSheep Merino Wool line up.  I was the lucky writer that was selected.  I am looking forward to this review – click HERE for my initial thoughts on the SAXX Blacksheep Boxer Briefs.

Woodlands Conservancy hike with Mia

I have used the Epson ProSense 57 watch for over 400 miles worth of adventuring and it has performed well.  It is easy to operate and does a nice job of tracking my hiking and running activities.  Durability seems solid.  The only nit pick is the battery life.  Click HERE to read my full update.

Zamst HA-1 Socks

Zamst HA-1 socks

I recently received the Zamst HA-1 compression socks to test. These socks really interest me as they claim to help reduce plantar fasciitis. I thought for sure being almost 40 years old, that I would never have another pair of socks labeled left and right. These socks however are labeled left and right to insure a nice fit.
