Pack for Your Weekend Escape with Gregory Border Traveler 30L Pack

By Jill | September 17, 2021

In the interest of minimizing travel luggage, we’ve trained ourselves to pack light and use clothing that can be worn for a variety of occasions. That keeps us from dragging around a lot of things we don’t really need, and saves money in checking bags when flying.   Even for a weekend escape, when our…

Combine Run Time with Adventure with Saucony Stopwatch Tops

By Jill | August 27, 2021

Classic running shirts are also great adventure shirts. Think about it. They’re made especially to wick sweat away while you’re active, which is also what you want when you’re out hiking and biking—not only when you’re running. And packing fewer items that do many things well is ideal for keeping your bags light when you’re…

Take Comfort on the Road with Salomon Predict 2 Running Shoes

By Jill | August 13, 2021

You may be used to running on the roads around home, but not all roads are created (or maintained) equally. Finding a great running shoe that adapts to you and the terrain on which you train often takes some time, but when you do find that “just right” shoe, you’ll want to take it along…

By Jill | August 6, 2021

There are all sorts of reasons people bring their own pillow on their travels: they have trouble sleeping in a hotel or vacation rental bed, they travel to places that don’t have the same hygiene standards as they do, and kids especially do so for sentimental reasons.

Hit the Trail in Fjallraven Abisko Midsummer Zip Off Trousers

By Jill | July 16, 2021

Sure, you could bring pants and shorts on a hike, but when you have a good pair of zip-off pants, you have both in one. The traditional problem with these types of pants for women, though, is that zip-offs were mostly just men’s pants sized smaller. They didn’t fit a woman’s body very well, and…
