Pack your gear in the Dakine Infinity Pack Backpack and Cyclone Duffel

By Jill / September 21, 2018 / 0 Comments

I’m always readjusting my preferences on travel gear, especially those items I use a log, like bags. Some folks prefer totes and rollaboards. Others like backpacks and duffels. I have to confess that I’m not firmly in any camp, but choose my bag depending on the trip. On a recent trip in Sweden, my luggage…

Classic Fave: Athleta Bettona Boyfriend Pant

By Jill / September 14, 2018 / 0 Comments

In 2012, I was an Athleta featured athlete. The brand chose a record 20 women athletes to highlight for the year, in a program that began in 2008 and has since morphed into an ambassador program that’s a little different than the featured athlete program. While Athleta doesn’t keep in touch with all its past…

Travelers who plan outdoor excursions from running to hiking and even fishing tend to have a variety of items to pack. There’s the list of clothing for the vacation itself, and then there’s the list for the outdoor activities. When traveling in warmer regions, even though I bring a mix of short- and long-sleeved shirts,…

Sustainable Food Storage with Bee’s Wrap Sandwich Wrap

By Jill / August 31, 2018 / 0 Comments

Do you ever feel guilty about using zip-lock baggies on your travels? They’re handy for storing your snacks and lunches, but using them a lot without washing them out and re-using them over and over means that you’re adding a bunch of plastic to the nearest landfill. I recently started using Bee’s Wrap Sandwich Wrap…

Pack a Snack With Honey Stinger Cracker N’ Nut Butter Snack Bars

By Jill / August 25, 2018 / 0 Comments

There are a million opportunities for snacking on your travels, whether it’s to avoid the airline cuisine (ahem), grab a quick breakfast in your hotel room, have a break on the trail, or even keep on hand for that moment when you know all your travel plans are going wrong. I’m constantly fine-tuning my ideal…

Pack an Extra Bag With Eagle Creek’s Packable Duffel and Daypack

By Jill / August 17, 2018 / 0 Comments

It’s sometimes hard to know what extra room you’ll need in your suitcase when you go on a trip. Are you a shopper? Will you need tons of extra space to buy a bunch of gifts (for yourself, as well)? Maybe you’re not into shopping, but you just happen to run across something you can’t…

Sip your drink through a Klean Kanteen Straw

By Jill / August 10, 2018 / 0 Comments

Straws are in the news, and it’s not because they’re great additions to summertime kid crafts. The single-use plastic items may make sipping a margarita easy, but then they wind up in landfills or in the ocean, where they’re mistaken for food by a variety of marine species. Instead of adding to the plastic problem,…

What are you going to do with the ultimate surf pack if you’re not a surfer? Certainly, if you’re never going to do any kayaking, stand-up paddling, boating, beachgoing, waterfall gazing, swimming-hole swimming, walking in the rain, or any other activity near, in, or on the water, you don’t need a dry pack. But if…

Power up with Run Gum

For some of us, morning coffee is more than a way to wake up. It starts with the aroma wafting through the house—a signal that another day will need your full attention. Even in a tiny hotel room, however the method of delivery (old-school drip, single-use pods, French press), coffee service for many is essential.…

But what happens when your adventures are just a little too aggressive for those comfy leggings? Leave them in your bag for later, and wear Fjallraven Abisko Trekking Tights instead. The tights are…
