Protect Your Phone with Phoozy XP3 Thermal Phone Case

A few years back, I spent time camping in the Himalayas in winter, just to see a snow leopard. Each night, I packed two water bottles into my sleeping bag, plus all my camera batteries, chargers, and my phone—so they wouldn’t lose their charge or stop working. When I rolled over in the middle of…

By Jill / October 2, 2020 /

When traveling light, it’s key to narrow down the number and weight of the bags you bring along. But that carry-on backpack that totes your laptop and a bunch of vacation essentials isn’t always the light day bag that you want to carry along on your excursions once you get to your destination. That’s why…

Now that autumn temperatures are here, I’m craving cozy clothing items to wear both at home and one the road. One of the challenges of this pandemic year is living so much in super-casual home life that it’s often difficult to care about being somewhat “presentable” when I do venture out in the world. But…

You don’t have to be a regular water sports person to have a pair of gloves for your water-based adventures. Whether your chosen favorite is paddling, boating, or fishing, the constant sun exposure, abrasion injuries, and occasional fishhook puncture can turn a fun time in the outdoors into a reason to avoid it next time.…

By Jill / September 4, 2020 /

It’s hard to be on top of things in the morning, and even after coffee, making a healthy breakfast sometimes gets pushed to the “next time” wish list as you grab a banana and head out the door. When you’re traveling, it can be even more difficult to scout out the places where you can…

As we approach fall, I’m cleaning out my gear shed. It’s tempting to hang onto things that perform well, but my focus going forward are items that are excellent in a variety of situations so I’m not hauling around a number of things that I don’t really need. One of the items that’s staying is…

Summer’s nearly over, and its peak, back in June, is long past. As daylight time shortens and the weather begins to change, it’s time to start thinking about baselayers. Take a look through your tried-and-true baselayers from the past few winters. Do they still fit? Do they have holes? Can they carry you through another…

When you’re on vacation, spending time on the water usually comes with the equipment necessary to be safe. Rentals for boats, kayaks, canoes, and stand-up paddleboards (SUPs) tend to include personal flotation devices, also known as PFDs or lifejackets.
