Balega Ultralight Crew

Very thin sock for running. Fairly good protection from friction, and stretchy fit. Fabric tends to soil and pill fairly easily. I like the socks for walking and running but prefer Balega’s more robust options. Balega’s Ultralight Crew is a lightweight running sock, made of “Drynamix“ moisture-wicking fabric that is supposed to keep your feet cool and wick moisture away to keep your feet feeling dry. Balega also touts its seamless toe as a way to avoid friction points. Unisex sizing in sizes… Full review

Banner & Oak Trucker Hat

I love this hat. I couldn't be happier with the purchase. I received two of these hats at a deep discount as part of a promotion for reviewing camping and outdoor gear. With that said, I can truthfully say that the Banner & Oak hats are awesome and I will now purchase their products regardless of whether that occurs in connection with a promotion. As for the hats, I typically require a high profile hat so I was sort of concerned when I first ordered this hat because it is listed as a mid-profile. Full review

Banner & Oak Trucker Hat

Rugged, durable material. One of my first purchases, was a wary one. I don't love trucker style hats, because more often than not, I'll get the odd one where the front sits ridiculously high on the head. It just looks....odd. Not so with this one. Top quality, I can really tell that this is going to be a hat I have for a while, and I love the patch design. Full review

Banner & Oak Pathfinder

A nice hat with women's heads in mind. From time to time I get products to test. This is one of those times. My head is on the small side and I am always on the lookout for hats that fit well and don't look ridiculous on me. Even though this hat is still on the large size for me, I like the look and feel of it. Out of the box it was stiff and took some working to soften it up. I think/hope it will continue to soften up as it will fit a bit better if it were softer. The adjuster snaps on the back… Full review

Banner & Oak Pathfinder

This is a lightweight, stylish, comfortable cap. I would definitely buy/gift. I wouldn’t consider myself a hat person but while camping and hiking in Alaska I’ve discovered they’ve made me happier. This hat is a cute trucker style hat with a mesh backing. It fits true to size and is easily adjustable. I always have a hard time figuring out how to bend a hat, but in my opinion this one was easy to make cute and feel nice. I gave it a 4/5 star due to the mesh feeling a little thick/not easily… Full review

Banner & Oak Trucker Hat

Good quality multi-purpose, trucker style hat from Banner and Oak. Got a great quality hat from Banner & Oak. It is a trucker style hat. Love the multiple colors of the hat and the stitch work is good. Love that it’s made in the USA. It’s breathable to wear while hiking and their shipping is great. Ordered it and only 4 days later it was delivered!!! Full review

Barefoot Company Free Your Feet

Best minimalist footwear available for a true barefoot experience. For a fabric they perform extraordinarily well in terms of minimalist footwear. I own a landscape/hardscape company and I work barefoot quite often, but in some circumstances the terrain does get a bit rough so these are my immediate go-to. On dirt, grass, stone, and other natural surfaces they do excellent. I jump on shovels all day too, so it is nice to not worry about slipping and slicing my foot on the sharp metal sections. On… Full review

The Elixir UV Arm Sleeves

The Elixir UV Arm Sleeves provide inexpensive, lightweight protection from sun and bugs, while keeping the wearer cool and comfortable. Worn on a 7-day hike with temperatures reaching the upper-80s, this reviewer was extremely satisfied with the sleeves' performance. The UV Arm Sleeves was an impulse buy, as I used an online gift card given to me at Christmas. Costing $13.99 for a four-pack, I thought of numerous activities this fair-skinned Scot-Irishman might use them for. I started off very skeptical… Full review
