ExOfficio Women's Rain Logic Jacket

ExOfficio Women’s Rain Logic Jacket

By Jill | May 13, 2016

The best way to deal with rainy weather while on your vacation is to be prepared for it. Even if you’d prefer that it not rain, having a great waterproof jacket packed away in your suitcase will ensure that if Mother Nature goes against your wishes, you’ll be just fine. The ExOfficio Women’s Rain Logic…

Arc'teryx Norvan Jacket

Arc’teryx Norvan Jacket

By Jill | April 15, 2016

Do you have two types of rain shells: 1) one that’s appropriately light and packs small but wets out in a rainstorm, and 2) one that’s heavier and you’d rather not bring it, but is better to wear in the rain because it keeps you dry? Forget that ridiculous habit, and pack only one after…


High Sierra spring layers for men and women

By Amy | April 5, 2016

In our region of the Northwest, we’ve entered that season of difficult-to-decipher weather known as spring. We’re still skiing in the mountains, but the air is definitely more balmy than it was a month ago, and we’re also starting to hike and bike the trails. It’s definitely time to put away the parkas and get…


REI Talusphere jacket for women

By Amy | March 22, 2016

Spring may be just around the corner, but for me, it’s still solidly winter. Ideal for those outdoor adventure days when you may work up a sweat in the sun or those spring ski days where anything goes in terms of weather, the REI Talusphere jacket is lightweight, incredibly flexible, and well ventilated. Made for…

Eddie Bauer Women’s Telemetry Freeride Jacket and Pants

By Jill | January 29, 2016

We’re mid-ski season, so if you’re anything like me, you’re assessing whether you really love your ski gear. If not, it’s time to take advantage of mid-season sales and up your game so you’re happy and comfortable for the remainder of the season. If you love what you have, there’s no need to spend more…

ExOfficio Women's Minka Pant

ExOfficio Women’s Minka Pant

By Jill | January 22, 2016

Are leggings pants? You might be surprised at the bandwidth spent by discussing this very topic. Ultimately, whether an item of clothing is acceptable in a certain situation depends on whether you’re comfortable (with your own clothing choice, not bodysnarking at others) and whether it works for the occasion. If you’re just not sure if…

Arc’teryx Atom LT Hoody

Arc’teryx Women’s Atom LT Hoody

By Jill | January 8, 2016

Whether you’re looking for winter gear to wear at home, or traveling somewhere with colder conditions, it’s important to know what you’re looking for in a jacket. What works for resort skiing doesn’t always work for cross-country skiing, and sometimes, neither jacket would work for just general walking around in a snowstorm. The Arc’teryx Women’s…

Smith Vantage Women’s Ski Helmet | Practical Travel Gear

Smith Vantage Women’s Ski Helmet

By Jill | December 11, 2015

Sure, you can rent ski helmets at pretty much every ski resort, saving precious suitcase space for something else, but if you’re a regular skier, your own helmet makes much more sense. Two reasons: resort helmets rarely feature leading-edge technology and ew, sharing your helmet with hundreds/thousands of other people? The Smith Vantage Women’s Ski…

ExOfficio Wanderlux Crossfront shirt | Practical Travel Gear

ExOfficio Wanderlux Crossfront shirt

By Amy | December 8, 2015

Well, ExOfficio has done it again. Somehow, they keep making travel shirts I would happily sleep in, they’re so comfortable. Even more remarkable: they don’t look like something I’d sleep in. The ExOfficio Wanderlux Crossfront is the perfect example. Right out of the box or off the rack, it’s immediately obvious this shirt is one of…

Icebreaker Destiny Dress | Practical Travel Gear

Icebreaker Destiny Dress

By Jill | December 4, 2015

Packing the right wardrobe, especially if your itinerary includes casual and somewhat dressy activities, can be a challenge. Some travelers turn to monochrome clothing that can easily mix and match, others bring extra luggage. But when you pick the right pieces, those that can be worn for nearly any occasion (perhaps not rock climbing, though),…
