Sunglasses are an essential part of my kit. My eyes are very sensitive to light and even in overcast conditions I wear sunglasses, or I end up squinting which leads to headaches. adidas has become a player in the performance eyewear market and I will be reviewing their Evil Eye Evo Pro glasses over the next few months. Read on for my initial thoughts.

I have been dabbling with calve compression sleeves for the past few years while running marathons and ultramarathons. I am not sure that I have empirical data, but since I started using the calve sleeves, I have had better muscle recovery and no calve cramping while racing. The only challenge was that I needed to wear a compression sleeve and running socks. Injinji has come out with a compression sock that I hope can do both. I will be reviewing the Injinji Ultra Compression OTC socks over the next few months. Read on for my initial thoughts.
I am a klutz, I admit it. I break things easily. I recently upgraded to an iPhone 6s from an iPhone 4s and I needed a new case for my phone to try and protect it from my klutzy ways. Urban Armor Gear or UAG makes a line of cases to protect all types of phones and tablets and I decided to give them a try. I have been using their case for the last month while backpacking, running and everyday use and I am pleased and more importantly my iPhone still looks new. Read on for my full thoughts.
I put in a lot of miles and would even classify myself as an ultrarunner or maybe crazy runner who puts in around 50 miles a week running and hiking. This type of mileage along with work and life stress leads to stiff muscles. Moji is a company who creates massage tools to help relieve sore muscles. I will be using two of their tools over the next couple months – Moji Curve PRO and the Moji Foot PRO. Read on for my initial thoughts on these massagers.
Have you ever had that perfect night of sleep while camping? I have, and the right pillow contributes greatly to my night of comfort. I have used the Sea To Summit Aeros Ultralight Deluxe pillow car camping and hammock camping over the last month, and it has performed admirably. Read on for my full update.
I am always looking for new ways to carry gear and stay hydrated while running. For most of my runs, a vest is overkill, but I still need something to carry my phone, a few snacks, and some water. Ultimate Direction has a new line up of running belts called the Access 600 that I think will fill this need in my running gear quiver. I will be reviewing this running belt over the next few months. Read on for my initial thoughts.
