By Chris Guill / August 7, 2019 / 0 Comments

GoLite is one of my favorite men’s activewear brands and I love when they send me their latest products to test.  This year they were kind enough to send me the ReBound Jogger and ReActive Boxers.  I love how GoLite products look and fit but it’s their amazing commitment to environmentally friendly low energy production…

Lems Trailhead Review I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone on a hike in the wrong shoes and ended up paying for it through a series of blisters on my feet. That’s why I would recommend getting a lightweight hiking shoe that won’t trip you up on rough terrain. The developers behind Lems…

Proviz Switch Reversible Backpack Cover Review Biking is not exactly something that comes easy at first. It’s always been a struggle for me to find time to actually improve and build my stamina.

Boulder Denim Review and Kickstarter For Denim 2.0

By Chris Guill / September 23, 2018 / 0 Comments

Created by two self-proclaimed “dirtbags” these climbing buddies have created what I think is the perfect pair of jeans for guys that hate how constricting regular jeans are. Their solution, create a pair of jeans made for climbers and those of us who “used to climb” I fall solidly in the second category, while I…
