Adventure Outdoors with the Cotopaxi Capa Hybrid Insulated Hooded Jacket

By Jill | May 12, 2023

In my never-ending quest to lighten my luggage, even on adventure trips, I have to admit that even though I come from the land of layering (the San Francisco Bay Area), I often struggle with deciding what jacket(s) to pack along on my travels. If it’s an extreme thing, like rain, cold temperatures, hot temperatures,…

Go Island Style with Roark + Hinano Collection

By Jill | April 14, 2023

As the spring days get warmer, dreams of lounging in a tropical destination influence our travel itineraries. Sure, we can visit destinations like Hawaiʻi and Tahiti any time of year, but I find that when I’m wearing shorts at home, I pretty much want to wear them everywhere.

Jack Wolfskin Men's Tapeless Jacket

Stay Dry in All Weather with Jack Wolfskin Men’s Tapeless Jacket

By Jill | February 24, 2023

Weatherproof jackets often use seam tape to seal seams and keep them from leaking. But that practice can use as much as 65 feet of tape per jacket, causing a lot of waste. Jackets using seam-sealing tape also can have double layers, which isn’t optimal for breathability.   The Jack Wolfskin Men’s Tapeless Jacket eliminates…

Stay Warm and Dry with Mountain Hardwear HiCamp Shell Jacket

By Jill | November 11, 2022

When the weather’s cooler, we’re usually in search of two types of jackets: those that keep you warm, and those that keep you dry.

National parks have been called “America’s best idea,” and every year, the most well-known of U.S. National Parks see record visitation numbers.

Buff CoolNet UV Insect Shield Is No Joke

By Jill | April 1, 2022

I promise, this is no April Fool’s post.   As many of us switch from winter to spring/summer activities, we find that we’re dodging insects in the outdoors. Buzzing around our ears and in our eyes. Biting our arms and our legs. Quite frankly, it bugs. Sure, there are sprays and zappers and even our…
