If you are a fan of G-love and the special sauce and like cool beverages then this cooler and for that matter any other cooler from Yeti will not let you down. Kind of heavy for a cooler by itself and a tad heavy when drinks and ice are in there but also keeps your snacks, drinks, food, etc super cold all weekend long and beyond. Very durable and can take a beating if needed. Doubles as a seat at the campground, it can hold your weight if you need to stand on it too. Tundra's are built to last.

Don;t worry about your little munchkin getting burned with this baby on. Hooded tops for the kiddos in the sun are life savers if you have a pasty child who has never seen the sun yet. All jokes aside the patagonia cap hooded top is money and will keep her or him protected even on some pretty solid sunny days. Let them jump around in the water and have a blast and not get torched by the sun.

If you want a Hiking shoe and not a "trail Runner" you have found the solution with the outline GTX shoe. I have bought a half size up as i do with all of y hiking boots to accommodate any foot swelling and have some additional room if need for a warmer sock. The shoe itself is very breathable and i did not feel overheated during my hikes in the Wasatch up to Alta ski resort and Brighton to the many lakes available with mellow incline and not needing a foot hiking boot. Mostly dry conditions and a few streams to cross makes having a GTX shoe very helpful in staying dry on these day hikes.

I have a high arch and can still fit into this shoe just fine but if you have a wider foot maybe another shoe would be better as they are not "narrow" but not wide either. If you are just looking for something to use on a mellow trail and want traction and don;t want to get your feet wet on grass or anything like that these would be a solid choice. If you work at a golf course or an area that might be damp you will be very stoked on these.

If you like camping but hate not being able to shower. Or surf a ton and have to jet off to work post session. Or love to get your mtn bike nice and clean right after your ride. The Helio XL Pressure shower is an absolute game changer.

An upgrade in size from the smaller and original model the XL allows an easier seal valve on top with the screw top and a little bit more capacity water wise and the foot pump works just as well. A few other upgrades from the previous model was a handle is on the bottom which allows you to hang this upside down when empty so it will dry out 100%.

Just fill it up, let it sit in the sun or in your hot car during the day and when you need to rinse off your board, bike, or even a small child and yourself it works awesome. The pressure is great and provides more than enough to get rinsed off with some fresh water after being in the ocean, at a dirty campsite, after a hike, a muddy dog, you name it.

I loved this soo much that i bought this version even though i had the smaller one. That's how great this product is. It fits into the stuff sack very easy and does not take up much room when packed. About half the size of a basketball or so. I have taken this to Puerto Rico, Mexico, camping countless times, and to the beach to get all that sand off before getting into the car. I can't think of a good enough reason not to bring this on any trip.

Great Kid Trailer

I have been very satisfied with the Burly kid trailer for my daughter. She is 14 months in this photo and has plenty of room. There is a good amount of storage area in the back to put a backpack or any items you may need on a bike ride like Diapers, wipes, etc.

Easy hook up with most bikes and pulls very well, not heavy by itself and breaks down very easy for storage or transporting. Tires comes off very easy and there are multiple points where it secures to the bike so all the worried moms can rest assured it will not detach from the bike some how sending your child flying into traffic. It has been great and I like things that are great!

If you are looking for something that is going to be the closest thing possible to your bed at home. Look no further. The Megamat is legit! Foot pump means no batteries required and it stays inflated which can be a bummer of other mats. Love this thing and with a toddler rolling all over me in the middle of the night comfort is key. Way comfy nothing beats it out there. Can be a bear to get back into the stuff sack though, that's the only bummer but it's worth it for sure.

Love it!! Buy it! You won't regret your purchase.

Very comfortable and durable Keen hiking shoe. You will be hard pressed to find a more durable hiking shoe out there. I have had these for several days and like the support of a Mid boot for hiking. I sized up a half size and they fit perfectly for a thick sock or just that little bit of extra room so on the downhill you are not crushing your toes into the toe box of these boots. Very stoked to have many more days on the trail with these boots. If you have a slightly wider foot these will also accomodate you well.

Really great combo of what you need for underwear included into a running short. The support inside these shorts is awesome and eliminates the bunching up that would be there if you wear anything underneath your running shorts. Some have solid support and these are no different. Really comfortable and basically the best of both worlds. Eliminates any rub and all around very comfortable short. Can also double as a solid boardshort.

Very tough and durable sole but has comfort and width to accmodates most people. Supportive mid for ankles and traditional lacing that does not come undone very easily. At first when walking on normal flooring you might think the sole is a little too stiff but after walking on grass or anything but concrete they feel a lot better and obviously are for hiking so in the element they are intended for.

Reinforced toes and heels so if you think you want to use in the winter they will be able to take a beating and keep on going. Very comfortable lining all the way around. Don;t sleep on OBoz (Outside Bozeman) they will be a solid purchase for you.

A tough part about finding a great hiking shoe is are they comfortable and how much do they weigh? The synthesis is a great combo of both as it is as light of a mid hiking shoe as you can find and it is also very comfortable. Remember some of those hikes you are going to be in those puppies for 10-12 hours so they better be comfortable or your dogs are going to be barking by mile 3. I gave a rating that they run small at least for me as i have a high arch and finding a shoe that can accommodate that personally can be a challenge but going up a half size would be encouraged in this shoe even for most people. They are not super wide so that extra half size should help most of the general population.

The quick lace system is very fast and easy to get in/out of the shoes without and hassle at all which is also nice if you ever need to tighten up on the fly. The Vibram soles are a nice and tough along with the shoe having a Gore-tex liner. Traction will not be an issue on any of the steep inclines or descending down a slope. You'll be good to go and don't have to wear a bulky, heavy hiking boot. Great for trail running if you like a tad more support around the ankle. All around a great hiking shoe and will be very happy with your choice.

If you have never had a trigger finger glove and are a bit skeptical have no fear. I was too. The ability to have your index finger free is very valuable and a nice feature to have. I am a mitten fan for sure but having the rest of my fingers together and the index free is very nice and not awkward as you might think. The leather glove will also last you a while when properly treated with the Nikwax, don;t sleep on treating your gloves with Nikwax, it will easily extend the life of your glove for many years.

Based on initial impressions from 2 other pieces of Reima that i have The quality of this product is going to stack up against anything else within the outdoor industry if not surpass it. The outerwear for Kids/children is based to be able to use for at least 3 seasons minimum. 1st season it's big , 2nd it fits well, 3rd season is likely to still be in use obviously depending upon the child. Very warm, durable, high quality product from Europe. You will not be disappointed with anything from Reima. My 9 month old is very toasty on the coldest days with her onezie and jacket.

Super durable pack that easily fits all the gear you need for a day at the crag. The brain compartment is nice for storing smaller things. The buckle latch design is dependable and fast. The straps are comfy the waste strap is great for taking the weight off your shoulders. All in all this is an awesome pack, I love that everything I need can be thrown in (or strapped to the side) which allows me to just grab it and go, knowing I have all my gear.

I received these as a gift. I probably wouldn't have purchased them on my own (initially the length would have put me off), but! they really are awesome running shorts.
They are on the short side for sure, but they are so light and easy to move in. The inside liner keeps everything in place and basically that is all I feel. I love the small back zipper pocket which is nice for stashing a key when doing some trail runs.
