Balega Hidden Dry Socks

Pack a Pair of Lightweight Balega Hidden Dry Running Socks

By Jill / May 7, 2021 /

I’m always down for lightening my luggage. It doesn’t matter if I’m checking a bag or carrying it into the cabin, whether I’m driving with it or lugging it on my back. I want to bring as little as possible, weighing as little as possible, to do everything that I need. That results in less…

Bring the Hoka Wind Pant Along on Your Adventures

By Jill / April 30, 2021 /

While most of my travels have been based around outdoor activities, it can be challenging to pack light for multi-activity trips. It’s why I choose most of my clothing pieces based on performance and versatility. Almost everything has to do double duty.   When I head out on the road again, I’m bringing my Hoka…

Slip-on Comfort with OluKai Kiʻihele Sneakers

By Jill / April 23, 2021 /

One of the things I have not missed in this past pandemic year is the occasional need to take my shoes off at security checkpoints in airports. Sure, TSA PreCheck lets travelers skate this requirement, but it’s still necessary at checkpoints without PreCheck and most international airports.   I’ve long loved OluKai’s drop-in heel design…

By Jill / April 9, 2021 /

Water purifiers aren’t only for those who travel far into the backcountry or developing nations. As we’ve witnessed this past winter, any region can have water disasters, from water mains breaking to frozen or broken lines to mechanical failures. Sure, you can stock up on bottled water in plastic containers, but those may not always…

The best travel clothes fit your lifestyle.

The need for cozy baselayers doesn’t go away once we change our clocks and make the jump to springtime. Cool temperatures continue, whether you’re at home or out in the world, so why not be prepared for them?   My recent additions to my baselayer collection (and let’s be honest, sometimes I just wear them…

As we transition from winter to spring, it’s time to dust off your camping gear. For some of us, however, that gear has been useful even through the colder months. But winter camping is sometimes intimidating to new campers, especially as it requires gear that stands up to the elements.   One of the important…
