Review: Mountain Laurel Designs Soloomid XL

Design Top Peak Vent- This is constantly open. But I'm not sure it makes that much of a difference in terms of condensation prevention. Condensation - As with all single-wall shelters, condensation can be an issue in some circumstances with the SoloMid XL. This can be addressed to variable degrees by picking a good campsite and leaving some room under the tent's sides for better ventilation.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMMSmNlBCvM&ab_channel=fillswildwalks Pitching I'll rig it up with short 6 in /15 cm adjustable guylines on the corners and side tie-out points in most conditions. I'll batten down the hatches and anchor the corners to...

Review: Therm-a-Rest Neoair Xtherm Sleeping Pad

Consider sleeping on a fluffy cloud. The aroma of pine trees pervades the air. Now imagine the neighboring river collecting snow melt. Your tent is resting on a lovely layer of powder. It feels like you could use a rubbish bag as a sleeping bag and still be perfectly happy. That's how the NeoAir Xtherm makes you feel; satisfied. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_wL2MDCOfs&ab_channel=TheOutdoorGearReview Performance Excellent. It takes up a lot less room than other four-season mats with comparable R-Values. When rolled up, it's somewhat larger than a one-liter Nalgene bottle. In practice, however, I never actually wrap it up. Instead, at the start...

Patagonia Baggies Shorts

Design There are three pockets in total. Two side pockets and a snap pocket on the back. The latter is huge self-draining and have a loop connection on the right side of the 2019 model, which is perfect for hooking keys or a compass lanyard. Their vertical design is useful when fording deep rivers since it reduces drag in the water; it is also useful when swimming. When wearing the Baggies, you may leave your undies at home. I've generally advocated going commando while hiking over the years, but I kept the liner in two of my three pairs of...

BROOKS CASCADIA 14 Trail Running Shoes Review

In relation to protection, the 14 also has a built-in rock plate in the forefoot which is particularly handy if a lot of your trekking is done in tough terrain. Overall, the midsole is not too soft that you can't feel the ground, but not too firm that you can feel every sharp or harsh thing you come into contact with.  Outsole The heel drop has been reduced from 10 to 8 millimeters. The new outsole with multi-directional lugs is more durable and grippier on slick surfaces than previous Cascadia iterations. The integrated saddle system helps lock down the midfoot...
