No Hands Necessary with Kizik Alpine Shoes

By Jill / January 17, 2020 /

Unless you are a regular wearer of slippas (AKA flip-flops), you know the feeling of having to bend down to put your shoes on—whether you are seated or standing while doing it. But when you struggle to get your shoes on, especially after walking through the security section of an airport, you might wish for…

Dress for Adventure with the Title Nine Adventurista Dress

By Jill / January 10, 2020 /

Travel dresses are sometimes so specialized that it’s hard to just travel with one. You have the beach cover-up, the dinner dress, the daytime sun dress, and even more options. When you’re trying to pack extremely light, one dress is what you want—and finding one dress that covers everything isn’t always easy. I’m thankful for…

Danner Trail 2650 GTX for your 2020 hiking adventures

By Amy / January 7, 2020 /

Danner has been making hiking shoes since 1932, so they’re retro without even trying. Their women’s Trail 2650 GTX  is a nod to the length of the Pacific Crest Trail, and this shoe is up to the task, whether you’re hiking from Mexico to Canada or just out for the weekend. I love that this…

‘Tis the season to make sure you have your winter alpine ski season wear!

Icebreaker Waypoint Sweater for cold weather travel

By Amy / December 24, 2019 /

Icebreaker’s Waypoint Roll Neck Sweater is Merino wool goodness in a tunic length. I love this length for travel days because it works so well with leggings and tights, which take up far less room in my carry-on than jeans or slacks. (Of course, the Waypoint will look great with those, too, especially your favorite…

From Trail to Tavern with Forsake Range High Boots

By Jill / December 13, 2019 /

If there’s anything we talk about over and over at Practical Travel Gear, it’s the need for versatility in gear so that you don’t have to cram your suitcase with a bunch of single-use items that are awesome for one thing, but not so great for many others. When your itinerary includes outdoor adventures, you…

Outdoor Research Illuminate Down Hoody

By Amy / December 10, 2019 /

Every traveler needs one great down jacket in their wardrobe. Down jackets or ‘puffer jackets’ pack down small, are lightweight to wear, move with the body, and keep you extremely warm in chilly temperatures. Recently, I tested the Outdoor Research Illuminate down hoody, which comes in a men’s and women’s version in a lot of…

Let it Snow with Helly Hansen Odin Mountain Softshell Jacket

By Jill / December 6, 2019 /

Snow is everywhere as we ease into the winter season, and if you haven’t already pulled your winter wardrobe out of storage, now’s the time. It’s also often when we look through the clothing from past seasons that we realize we need one new item—either to replace what we’ve grown out of, or replace what…
