Good To-Go Food Sample Pack Giveaway

The start of the year, for me and many others, consists of lots of food testing. I have some old faithful recipes and meals to fall back on, but I enjoy the process of trying new recipes, packaged meals, and just generally tinkering with food before the hiking year gets crazy. Better to test early and find […]

I own quite a few watches, as many of you probably know. Some of my watches could be considered “high-end” and others are better described as every day beaters. Not too long ago I designed my own set of retro compressor case Swiss dive watches that went into a limited product run of 500 pieces […]

The Outdoor Products Amphibian Weather Defense backpack is a 20L waterproof pack that earned the #1 spot in a recent Backpacker Magazine rating of waterproof packs.
