Crest Low BDry Hiking Shoe

The Oboz Crest Low Shoe is a waterproof, low-top hiking shoe. Designed for long miles on the trail, the shoe could be described as hybrid between a hiking boot and trail running shoe. Click here to see my initial review of the Crest Low Shoe.

Sea to Summit Aeros Ultralight Deluxe Pillow – Initial thoughts

Sea to Summit Aeros Pillow

Sea to Summit Aeros Ultralight Deluxe Pillow – Inflated

I love camping in all of its forms – backpacking, car camping, cabins – you name it I like being in the wilderness. However, as I have gotten older I find that I want thicker sleeping bags, and more cushy confines, but the one thing I have not been able to find yet is a good backpacking pillow.  Sea to Summit thinks they have solved this dilemma with the Aeros Ultralight Delux Pillow.  I have the good fortune of reviewing the pillow over the next few months.  Read on for my initial thoughts.

Update Columbia Performance Stretch Boxer Brief

Columbia Performance Stretch Boxer Briefs

At the Bald Rock Overlook Pinhoti Trail

I have done my best to break the Columbia Performance Stretch Boxer Briefs over the past two months with over 125 miles of backpacking, running and general wear.  They have been supremely comfortable, continue to look brand new, and for the most part are funk free for the first couple days of continuous use.  Read on for my full update!

Moxie Gear Gaiter Combo – Final Update

Moxie Gear Gaiter Combo

Moxie Gear Gaiter Combo

Over the past several months, I have put the Moxie Gear gaiter combo to the test hiking, backpacking and running throughout Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, and they have performed well.  The ankle gaiter keeps trail debris out of my footwear, and the Shin gaiter has protected my shins from thorns, insects, and various overgrown trail vegetation.  I recommend giving this company and gear combo a look for all of your lower leg protection needs.  Read on for my full thoughts on this combo.

Rhone Mako Short – Initial thoughts

I honestly don’t think much about the fashion sense of the gear that I use to run, hike or hit the gym in.  I grab what has functioned in the past and use that.  Rhone is a company that wants to change that. They advertise that they make “men’s premium activewear engineered with principle, performance and progress for the modern man.”  I will be reviewing the Rhone Mako Short over the next several months to see if they truly bridge the gap between performance and fashion. Read on for my initial thoughts.
