My Husband Stole My Julbo Elevate Sunglasses

By Jill / September 20, 2019 / 0 Comments

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…

Keep it Cool with OtterBox Trooper 12 Cooler

By Jill / September 13, 2019 / 0 Comments

Sometimes, your day trip needs a huge cooler. Sometimes, your day trip needs something smaller. When you’re headed to an evening bonfire, an afternoon pick-up game, or even a day floating on the river, a full-size cooler usually isn’t necessary. In those cases, you want something smaller, but that still keeps your food and drinks…

Trail Time with Fjallraven Keb Curved Trousers

By Jill / September 6, 2019 / 0 Comments

I recently spent a long weekend in the Colorado backcountry, hiking daily on trails and through meadows with a group of friends. The days are still warm in the sun, but nights have grown chilly with the approaching change of seasons. Sure, I could have worn yoga pants for stretch and freedom of movement. But…

When you travel a lot, you end up trying out a lot of gear for the purpose of finding that one piece that’s just right. Your favorite piece may look good, or it may perform spectacularly, or it may just simply do its job better than many others. Or, it might do all of the…

Charge it Up with Goal Zero Sherpa 100PD Power Bank

By Jill / August 9, 2019 / 0 Comments

Internet connectivity and the ability to plug in nearly everywhere can sometimes make us forget that there are places in the world that are truly off the grid. While I’m all for the idea of ditching the digital and enjoying outdoors, when it comes to the reality of doing it for a number of days…

Keep Meals Fresh with Yeti Daytrip Lunch Bag

By Jill / August 2, 2019 / 0 Comments

You don’t have to be an office-goer to care about packing a lunch. Whether you’re hitting the trail or the airport, there are plenty of reasons to pack your own meal, and nobody needs soggy sandwiches and lukewarm beverages smashed in a paper bag. Lately, I’ve been packing my on-the-road meals in a Yeti Daytrip…

Up Your Beach Game with Carve Designs Clothing for Women

By Jill / July 26, 2019 / 0 Comments

Even if you think you have your summer clothing game handled, it’s always a great time to augment your warm-weather wardrobe when there’s plenty of product to be had and the puffy jackets of winter aren’t yet on display in stores. Besides, for travelers, there’s always a destination that has summery weather even when your…

Store It in a Stasher Reusable Silicone Bag

By Jill / July 19, 2019 / 1 Comment

One of my least-favorite things about travel is our reliance on plastic bags. We’re expected to use them for carry-on liquids. We stash snacks, laundry, wet swimsuits, groceries, and even charging cables in them. And then, one day (sooner than we’d prefer), they get holes in them and we throw them away. And now, I…

Light the Way with Coast HX4 Cliplight

By Jill / July 12, 2019 / 0 Comments

I’m a huge fan of the hands-free nature of headlamps, but the challenge with them arises when you need light, but don’t want to have the beacon on your head. But the alternative isn’t always a hand-held flashlight. I’ve become a fan of the Coast HX4 Cliplight, which I can clip onto the bill of…

Stay Warm and Cozy in Cotopaxi Cubre Full-Zip Fleece Jacket

By Jill / July 5, 2019 / 0 Comments

Even though we often need to find clothing items that perform well in a variety of conditions to save packing space, it’s hard to beat a soft fleece jacket for warmth and comfort. I haven’t had a go-to fleece in a while, but my current favorite is the Cotopaxi Cubre Full-Zip Fleece Jacket. Made with…
