Toad & Co. Jetlite Pant

Toad & Co. Jetlite Pant – A Quick Review

By Jill | July 29, 2016

True minimalists prefer multi-functional clothing items when it comes to packing for travel. Pieces that can be worn different ways, or can function both as daytime and evening wear, are immediately valuable because you can limit the suitcase space needed for your wardrobe. The Toad & Co. Jetlite Pant is one of my favorites and…

Icebug Glava Boots Keep You Steady – A Quick Review

By Jill | January 27, 2017

You know how it happens: You’re in a rush, or distracted, walking on a sidewalk with a combination of ice and snow. It looks fine to walk on, but suddenly you hit a slippery patch. If you’re lucky, you save yourself from falling (but perhaps tweak a muscle in your back from your quick body…

Granite Gear Cross Trek 36 Liter Backpack – A Quick Review

By Amy | May 2, 2017

We have long loved Granite Gear’s overnight packs for backpacking (in fact, our son took the Granite Gear Lutsen on a trek across Oregon last summer).

Everyone who travels in the winter needs at least one lightweight, packable, isolated jacket for the road. Bonus points if it’s highly affordable.

Filson 48-Hour Duffle – A Quick Review

By Jill | July 15, 2016

When you’re looking for a great carry-on or overnight bag that is both stylish and rugged enough to be able to deal with the occasional rain shower, you often have to back up and decide which is really the most important element: style or ruggedness. Because it’s not often you get both in the same…

Patagonia Black Hole Duffel

By Jill | November 20, 2015

When you need a bag to carry everything—and I mean everything essential—the duffel is hard to beat. Sure, it doesn’t have fancy wheels, and the shapeless tubular style isn’t always great if you have far fewer things to pack inside, but that same shape is fantastic for cramming your gear inside and hauling it to…

Keep The Rain Off With ExOfficio Emei Trench – A Quick Review

By Jill | January 12, 2018

Finding the right rain jacket can be a challenge. Do you go with the extreme athletic performance piece, or the one you can wear downtown when you’re headed out to meet friends for dinner? Sure, either will work, but unless you’re a gear reviewer or someone with tons of closet space, one jacket should be…
