I really like how portable this line of coolers is. With a shoulder trap and tote handles, it's much easier to lug around than a hard-sided cooler. Perfect for outdoor concerts or day trips where you want to keep some beverages and food cold for several hours and not have to deal with a clunky cooler. I was surprised at how long this held ice (~8 hours in prime time summer heat) given my experience with other soft-sided coolers, although expecting 48 hours out of it seems a bit optimistic unless if you're not really opening it.

Took this jacket out for a test spin and was really impressed by the construction and design. Kept me dry during an unexpected storm that lasted for several hours during my last river trip. Has all the features I want in a rain jacket. Zippered pit vents, lots of pockets options, adjustable cuffs, large hood with adjustment points, packs down small, etc. Loving the four-way stretch fabric, it's honestly something I've come to expect in all of my outerwear these days and this jacket did not disappoint. Medium fits me well with a little extra room to spare for layers and movement. I like that the length is slightly on the longer side as it provides more coverage and helps the water drain off of me as opposed to directly on my pants. Mauve is a really nice color too. All around, very impressed by this shell!

I've been looking for that perfect in between jacket for a while now and finally found it! Great light/midweight jacket for those awkward transitional days. I love that it has some stretch to it and it's super comfy to wear. The interior fleece is soft against bare skin but not as thick as I was expecting, which is a good thing in this case since I wanted a more lightweight jacket vs. warm fleece. I also appreciate that it offers some protection from wind and light rain. The medium fits me well and I have extra room for layers if needed.

Super impressed by how lightweight and flexible these pads are. I don't usually wear pads but decided to try these out for a local race. I expected them to feel bulky and awkward but not so! They are easy to cram into my pack for the ride up and quickly slip on and stay in place for the ride down. I'll definitely be adding a pair of these along with the elbow pads to my collection.

Took this on a desert river trip through Desolation Canyon and it was clutch for combating the beating afternoon sun. Comfortably fits you plus several friends, provides great shade, and maintains adequate airflow so you don't feel like you're baking in a sauna. Stood up well to moderate wind and has many stake out points. It was a bit of a group effort to setup but well worth it.

Took this chair on a week long river trip through Desolation Canyon. It packs down super small which was a huge plus on an otherwise gear heavy adventure. It's also really comfy to sit in. However, I found it to be a little too complicated to setup day in and day out (especially compared to the Mantis which I also tested out) and I wasn't a fan of how low to the ground it was. Not a bad chair but I personally prefer the Mantis, even though the Mayfly packs down smaller:

I took this jacket out for a test drive on a recent bike trip to Moab and have some initial impressions to share. Overall, it's a solid lightweight jacket designed to cut out a chilly wind or provide a touch of extra warmth on a cooler shoulder season ride. It's lightweight and packable yet the material feels more substantial (i.e. snag resistant) for biking than other lightweight wind breakers out there. Minimalist design with a nice subtle stretch to it. There's a small zippered interior chest pocket as well as a medium zippered exterior pocket on the lower back. I found the check pocket useful but the lower back pocket doesn't make much sense if you're wearing a back or hip pack. A medium fit me well and layered comfortably over a t-shirt. The cut is quite fitted.

Awesome for providing a back up charge for your phone if you're on the go and don't have another power option. I really like the built in cables for ease and simplicity. This will only provide about one charge, so if you're looking for more, consider scaling up to the Sherpa 40.

Super thick, warm, and overall high quality flannel that's perfect for fall and winter. Loving the spectra/kiln pink. I purchased this in a medium so it would fit slightly on the larger side and allow more movement in the arms.

I love this shirt. Comfy basic with a bit of style. The rolled sleeve adds a cute touch. The material is also really great and feels more durable than your typical cotton shirt. I purchased a small which fits me well, although it is quite a bit boxier than shown in the pictures. No complaints but it's definitely not falling that far below my waistline and a medium would be too large in the neck/shoulders.

Prana's foundation line is where it's at. The material is buttery soft and so comfortable. I wear this all summer long and will definitely be getting more. Does run a bit large. A small fits me pretty well and is on the baggier side.

NRS frames are very easily adjustable to fit whatever configuration you like. By just loosening a few nuts, the cross bars can easily be slid along the side rails to adjust. I personally like sitting on the dry box while rowing as it saves space for the rest of your gear.

Been using these oarlocks for years and have had no issues whatsoever. Make sure to pick up a set of the springs that go underneath the oar tower. Backcountry does not carry these unfortunately.
