Tortuga Setout Backpack for Women

By Jill / November 29, 2019 /

Roll-aboard carry-on bags are extremely convenient. You can get them with soft sides or hard sides, you can get them the perfect size to be a legal carry-on, you don’t have to carry them but roll them alongside as you walk. And yet, I’ve recently grown weary of mine. That’s not to say it’s not…

Stride Into Winter with OluKai Hawaiʻiloa Manu Hope Boot

By Jill / November 15, 2019 /

I suppose it depends on where you live. When the air turns crisp and it’s no longer sandal weather, changing to closed-toe shoes can be a challenge—whether you’re on vacation or at home. It definitely helps when those fall/winter/spring shoes look good. With the OluKai Hawai‘iloa Manu Hope women’s boot, I don’t mind the cooler…

Swim, Bike, Bonk: Confessions of a Reluctant Triathlete

By Jill / November 8, 2019 /

Books, even though they’re not “gear” per se, are essential travel companions for many of us. Whether in print or digital form, their stories educate and entertain us on long flights, train rides, or even if we’re just eating in a restaurant by ourselves for the 15th time on a journey. My argument for talking…

Cozy Up in Sherpa Rolpa Fleece Pullover

By Jill / November 1, 2019 /

The chill of autumn and winter means it’s time to pull out all those cozy garments that keep us warm and comfortable whether we’re curled up at the lodge fireplace or out in the elements having fun. And if you’re anything like me, top priority goes to those pieces that are so soft, you feel…

Slay Cool Weather With Smartwool Intraknit Merino 200 Crew Base Layer Top

By Jill / October 25, 2019 /

Each fall/winter, I pick a few new base layers to get me through the cool weather. And since I’m usually active when I’m out in the cold (as opposed to just sitting around), I usually prefer lightweight and midweight merino layers underneath it all. One of my picks for this year is the Smartwool Intraknit…

Keep Your Feet Dry With LaCrosse Grange Chelsea Boots

By Jill / October 18, 2019 /

Classic rubber boots don’t have to look like big, sloppy galoshes. When it’s raining outside but you don’t want to dress down because you have a combination of sightseeing and cool meet-ups in cafes or bars, you don’t really need to compromise and risk looking way too casual or get your feet wet. Just wear…

Style Your Feet With Lowa San Diego GTX Surround Shoes

By Jill / October 11, 2019 /

Everyone’s got a favorite sport shoe to take on their travels that both performs well and looks good, so you don’t have to bring two shoes instead of one. The skate shoe design is one of my favorites to pack along, because it’s versatile for all-around sporty ability (you can walk, run, hike, skate, bike)…

Travel Comfort With Body Glove Eco Collection

By Jill / October 4, 2019 /

Do you pack your favorites go-to workout clothing when you travel? Not all my trips are active ones. But I always bring at least one active wear outfit, so I can duck into the hotel gym, go for a run, take a yoga class, or do something else that reminds me that I need to…

Traveling can really kill a healthy diet. Whether you’re rushing to catch your flight and grab something fast in the airport or just suck it up with airplane food, you dive in to the hotel breakfast buffet, or enjoy a few extra adult beverages—a vacation (or even a business trip) can take a toll on…

My Husband Stole My Julbo Elevate Sunglasses

By Jill / September 20, 2019 /

A couple months ago, I came home from the summer Outdoor Retailer show with a stash of gear to test and review. One of the many stand-out items was a pair of Julbo Elevate sunglasses. I wore them for about a week, and then they disappeared. I’m not usually prone to misplacing my sunglasses and…
