White Sierra, a brand I’ve always appreciated for their affordability, has done a good job with their skirts and pants this year, with two offerings in particular that I’ve…

Darn Tough Socks: The Sock for Smart Travelers!

By Tim Guill | August 19, 2015

There is nothing quite like having good socks, I mean REALLY good socks, especially when traveling. What is one thing most people do a lot of when they travel? They walk… they walk A LOT.

Outdoor Research Aspire Pant and Kayak Gear Accessories

By Amy | August 18, 2015

A few weeks ago, I wrote about three products that helped us out while backpacking the Pacific Crest Trail. This week, I’m back with some products that we loved using during a multi-day sea kayaking trip in Washington state. Like with backpacking, there’s not a lot of extra room for luxuries while kayaking, but a…

Mountain Khakis Granite Creek Pant for men and women

By Amy | October 15, 2013

Mountain Khakis calls their lightweight, packable adventure pant the Granite Creek Pant. I call it the Do All, Go Everywhere, and Look Great Doing It Pant. (Wordy, but accurate.

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.
