Xero Shoes TerraFlex Review

Upper and sole wear on the Xero Shoes TerraFlex after 100 miles of use

Xero Shoes TerraFlex Review

The Xero Shoes TerraFlex have performed well over the past several months.  I was able to use them for daily walks, hiking and even a beach half marathon.  The shoes have performed well in all conditions.  They definitely take getting used to, but I find them to be comfortable. Durability also seems to be great even after over 100 miles of use.  You can read my entire update here.

One of the best things about reviewing gear is the ability to try out new products and learn about new companies. One of the new companies is Sakari Gear.  Sakari Gear’s “goal is to be able to provide great quality outdoor gear at a great price, while creating a meaningful social impact.”  Their first product is the Sisu Sleeping bag which I have the good fortune of reviewing.  You can read my initial thoughts on the Sisu Sleeping bag HERE.

Dinner Prep at Buccaneer State Park in Mississippi

I am not sure how I car camped before I started using the GCI Outdoor Master Cook Station.  I really enjoy how easy it is to set up and the ability to better organize my camp.  The table top is perfect for storage and food preparation.  You can read my full update HERE.

FirePit Rocker Update

FirePit Rocker Update

GCI FirePit Rocker by my campfire

One of the things that makes car camping fun is hanging out around the campfire.  The FirePit Rocker from GCI Outdoor makes hanging out around the campfire even better because it is super comfortable.  I like the ability to lounge with my legs straight out and gently rock back and forth while enjoying a beverage.

Warbonnet Thunderfly

Warbonnet Thunderfly I am usually so busy writing reviews of gear sent to me that I don’t find the time to write a review of gear I bought.  However, I have been so impressed with the Warbonnet Thunderfly that I carved out the necessary time.  Lets just say I really like this hammock fly.  But to read all about it click here.

First Look – ROVR Colorado RollR 85 Cooler Review

ROVR Colorado RollR 85 Cooler Review

The Colorado RollR 85 fully tricked out.

The ROVR Products RollR cooler started the same way that many ideas do – because of a problem.  Tired of carrying gear from their car to their campsite they thought there had to be a better way, and the RollR cooler was born. ROVR products has an easy to navigate website with videos explaining their products.

I will be reviewing the Colorado RollR 85 in the summer heat of New Orleans and the deep south this summer.  ROVR products calls it “An 85-quart carrying, all-terrain attacking, patented design that can go anywhere you can.”  The RollR 85 retails for $449.
