Review: Citizen Eco-Drive Promaster Altichron

Functionality When you first receive the Citizen Eco-Drive Altichron, you take the top off of what is best described as a “canister,” and you are greeted with a beautifully complex watch face wrapped in titanium and glass. The business on the face is a bit overwhelming...

Review: Mission Workshop Sanction Rucksack

Review: TSG Dawn Flex Helmet

Functionality ★★★★★ The Dawn Flex Helmet from TSG is not your ordinary helmet. Unlike most helmets which come pre-molded from the factory, the Dawn Flex uses what TSG calls “FlexTech,” which makes the outer shell flexible so it forms to...

Review: SPOT Global Satellite Phone

I tested the phone on a ranch in the rain, under heavy clouds, when the sky was clear, as well as under structures (like an awning). Even in the middle of nowhere in Oklahoma without any cell phone reception, this...

Interbike Demo 2015

Review: Ryders Caliber Sunglasses

Review: Outdoor Research Superlayer Jacket

Functionality ★★★★★ Outdoor Research has hit the jack pot with their Superlayer jacket! This jacket is made with an active PirmaLoft insulation which is non-migratory. Which apparently doesn’t just apply to birds. Since the insulation doesn’t move around or clump up in the...

Review: Super.Natural Base Layer

Functionality ★★★★★ When the Super.Natural Base Layer showed up in the office, one of the first things I noticed was its “odor resistant” claims. Sure it’s made of 48 percent anti-stinking merino wool but I was confident I could make this garment...

Review: Metolius Freerider Climbing Pack

Functionality ★★★★★ The Freefider Pack from Metolius is a great pack if you have a lot of gear to haul out to the crag. Our local crag has a bit of a hike before you actually stumble upon the climbing area....

Review: Leatt Knee Brace C-Frame

Functionality ★★★★★ I’m going to be honest, when I first put the Leatt Knee Brace on, I hated it. It would fall down my leg and was uncomfortable. I thought about my Leatt neck brace and how customizable it is, I...
