Our staff love to put gear and clothing to the test when they are out of the shop on adventures or at home. Check out some of their favorites this month………..
“My preferred fuel for my Windburner stove is MSR Isopro. It burns hot and clean, and the picture guide on the side makes it easy to tell how much fuel I have left.”
“Activelce Ubertube by Outdoor Research.On warm sunny days, I’ll wear it around my neck to protect from the sun and also wick away moisture to stay cool. When it gets chillier, I can pull it up around my face to protect myself from the cold mountain air.”
“ Astral V-Eight PFD. The high-back flotation integrates perfectly with my Pungo’s seat, and the ventilation keeps me cool and comfortable even on hot days.
“Anything can float downstream. Make your own current.” Lawton Clites ”
“Whether I am on the trail, working in the backyard or chasing my munchkins around the our house my Oboz Bridgers are my go to boots. Sturdy, waterproof and just an all around great hiking boot. “
“Never forget your lighting! I always prefer to carry a headlamp AND a flashlight for camping. The kodiak is a handy dandy flashlight as bright as your standard headlamp – 250 lumens. Who knew such a small object could provide guidance for dark trails or a hollowed out tree! “
“The North Face Ventrix Jacket. Where sky meets mountain, where man meets nature, where warmth meets breathability, that’s where you’ll find Lawton in his Ventrix Jacket. Appalachian Trail to Charlie’s Bunion, Great Smoky Mountains National Park.”
“Love my OR face mask. I can wear it comfortably for hours at a time, even while hiking. The ear loops are soft and stretchy, which gives a comfortable, secure fit.”
“We love our Ruffwear Approach Pack with plenty of room for gear so we can get out and enjoy the trails with our dog!”
