Update Cotopaxi Veloz Hydration Pack

Cotopaxi Veloz Hydration Pack

I have put over 100 miles on the Cotopaxi Veloz Hydration Pack running and hiking since my initial review.  The pack has delivered with plenty of space to hold everything I need for all day adventures and has been more comfortable than I expected.  Durability has been good with the exception of a tear beginning to grow where the front hook connects the shoulder straps.  Click HERE for my full update.

Since my last update I have continued to use the Smartwool PhD run socks for hiking and running in the Southeastern United States. I have put over 220 miles on the socks and they remain some of the most comfortable socks I have worn.  Durability remains good, but I am beginning to see wear in the bottom of the socks.  Click HERE for my final thoughts.

Hiking in the Kisatchie National Forest while wearing the SAXX Quest 2.0 Boxers

Well, I admit it, I am converted.  SAXX boxers have become my favorite underwear.  I have used them while backpacking, camping, and hiking, and they are durable, funk free, and comfortable.  Read my full final review HERE.

Update on the Swiss Advance Crono N5 knife

Swiss Advance

Swiss Advance Crono N5

I have carried the Swiss Advance Crono N5 knife for the last month or so, and I really like how handy this little knife is. The tools are useful in a pickle, and the knife blade is sharp and big enough for standard camp tasks like cutting stuff for meal prep.  Read on for my full thoughts on the Swiss Advance Crono N5 knife.
