Saxx Kinetic Boxer Underwear

Saxx Kinetic Boxer Underwear

“Life Changing Underwear” is Saxx’ motto, which is a bold and rather thought provoking statement. It may not be talked about often, but underwear is a piece of gear that [most] people don’t leave home without. I’ll be taking the next few months to test and give my thoughts and impressions on the Kinetic Boxer. Click here for my initial thoughts.

Alpine Aire Snacks Final Update

Spicy Cheddar Bean dip on pita chip.

A backpacking trip into the Nantahala Wilderness in Western North Carolina allowed me to try out most of these snacks on the trail. I was surprised with a few of the snacks – both in how they tasted and how easy/difficult they were to prepare in the backcountry. Click here to see my final update on the snacks, dips, and smoothie.

REI Revelcloud Jacket

However, in anticipation of some upcoming winter backpacking trips, I did my research and landed on what I think was the perfect choice considering all of my misgivings.
