Kick Your Feet Up with the Yeti Trailhead Camp Chair

Being one with nature often requires rest—like taking a seat on a log, rock, or the ground. And unless you run into a really cushy pillow of moss, those spots may be restful, but they’re not always super comfortable. For those moments when you need a seat before or after an adventure, consider the Yeti…

Go Farther with Title Nine Sayonara Café Sleeve Dress

By Jill / April 10, 2020 /

One of my biggest warm-weather clothing travel challenges has been being active (like running or hiking) while wearing a dress. Sure, with the right dress, it works. But not all dresses are the same, and I’m not down with giving a show while I try to get outdoors and go from place to place. With…

Prana Sky Canyon Jogger for Stylish Comfort

By Jill / March 27, 2020 /

Here at shelter-in-place central, my travels for the foreseeable future are cancelled. But with years of travel adventures, I’m pretty sure I know how to put a piece of gear through its paces while I’m on a shorter leash. And one of the pieces of clothing I’m always searching for is a pair of travel…

Head Outdoors with Beyond K3 – Prima Lochi Jacket

By Jill / March 20, 2020 /

Rugged weather protection in a jacket doesn’t have to lack style. And when traveling, while versatility is important, sometimes you wish you’d brought two jackets so you’re not wearing the exact same thing every day. With the Beyond K3 – Prima Lochi Jacket, you have two serious outdoor jackets in one, because it’s reversible. Made…

Carry Your Drinks in Klean Kanteen Insulated TK Pro Bottles

By Jill / March 13, 2020 /

My household has a “one in, one out” rule with beverage containers. No matter how cool the complete collection is, if we must make an addition, we have to be able to live with repatriating one to another owner so the overall number doesn’t change. In the case of the Klean Kanteen Insulated TK Pro…

Out in the Elements With Icebreaker Tropos Hooded Windbreaker

By Jill / March 6, 2020 /

When you’re headed out on a windy day, you want a jacket that keeps you warm, protects you from the wind cutting through your skin like a knife, and isn’t made from a loud fabric that folks might hear three blocks away. My current windbreaker of choice is the Icebreaker Tropos Hooded Windbreaker. Icebreaker is…

Wear Bombas Compressions Socks on Long Flights

By Jill / February 28, 2020 /

There are seemingly endless reasons to hate long-haul flights: cramped seats, indifferent treatment, bad food, stale air, cranky travelers, no room to stretch, and health hazards from viruses to sore muscles to deep-vein thrombosis (DVT). All for combined hours and hours of discomfort. But all with the promise of landing in a different place packed…

By Jill / February 21, 2020 /

I’m forever looking for the perfect carry-on pack that’s the ideal blend between my work and sporty life. One that easily carries my laptop and writing gear, but that I can also drop in a change of clothes for the gym or trail. Carrying two bags is too much. This week, I’m traveling with the…

Improve Your Trail Experience with Gregory Juno 24 Pack

By Jill / February 14, 2020 /

Hitting the trail and getting away from it all, even for just a day, is something outdoor folks think about more and more now that winter is beginning to transition to spring. But even in spring weather, a poorly fitting pack with no ventilation can make you sweat just like you might on a hot…

By Jill / February 7, 2020 /

When your trail time requires that you move fast and light, you don’t need to bring a lot of gear, and what you do decide to bring needs to perform well. Whether you’re a trail runner, fast hiker, or just like to get where you’re going without bringing a lot of stuff along, a good…
