By Tim Leffel / July 4, 2013 /

If you’ll be in the water these first two travel shoe styles are great for keeping some traction while getting wet. On land, all three will keep your feet ventilated in between.

Pick-pocket Proof Shorts Feel Great and Keep Fingers at Bay

By Tim Leffel / May 29, 2013 /

When we reviewed the first model of P^Cubed Pants, the design was a revelation and if the company had just stopped at those Pick-pocket Proof adventure pants, they would have had a nice little niche product that would slowly grow in sales each year as backpackers spread the word. The parent company, Clothing Arts, didn’t…

By Tim Leffel / December 20, 2012 /

Rarely have we seen shoes so squarely aimed at light-packing travelers as these Radler Trail Camping shoes from Timberland. They actually zip up smaller to go into a corner of your bag when it’s time to hit the road or trail. We’ve been happy to see this whole minimalist shoe trend take off, not because…

Two Polo Shirts Worth Packing for Your Travels

By Tim Leffel / May 10, 2012 /

A polo shirt is a versatile piece of clothing to be packing when you travel. It’s nicer than a t-shirt, hits the “collared shirts only” requirement, can be used for a game of golf or tennis, yet doesn’t take up much extra room in your bag. Most polo shirts are made to be wrinkle-resistant as…

Athleta Whatever Skort

By Jill / December 30, 2011 /

I ducked into an Athleta store this summer with a girlfriend who, like me, travels a lot and likes to have versatile clothing for outdoor adventures at home and abroad. She walked straight to a rack against the wall, pulled out a skirt, and proclaimed: “I love this! I even got one for my sister.”…

Thwart Pickpockets with P-Cubed Pants

Keen Voyageur Hikers

By Pam / June 10, 2011 /

I’ve said it before, I really do test out all the gear I get for review. That’s why during the last window of sunshine, I was stomping around in a muddy creek not far from my house. That day I walked five miles in a pair of Keen Voyageur Hikers. My hope was that they’d…
