Gear Review: REI Half Dome 2 Plus

If you’re currently looking for a tent and you haven’t already stumbled upon the REI Half Dome Tent Models, then it is clear that you live so far under a rock that it’s almost impossible for you to have found me here. If you have already seen the Half Domes then you already know there are many different models and variations. The exact tent model I’m reviewing today is the REI Half Dome 2 Plus.

Gear Review: Rhone Basecamp Jogger Pant

The Rhone Basecamp Jogger is a simple and stylish sweat pant. These things are so damn comfortable they make putting on my normal pants pretty difficult. Unlike many other big name joggers I’ve tried out, these things aren’t too long, too tight or too baggy. I’m 5’ 10” and the medium is perfect fit for me. The fabric is soft and stretchy enough to feel great on the skin, but thick enough to feel durable. The stretchiness allows for free movement when out hiking, at the gym or even doing yoga (see below). To boil it all down, the Basecamp Jogger is a well built, comfortable pant from the the ankle cuff to the waist band. They're available in 3 colors and come in all sizes.

Shoots: Minus 33 Merino Wool Catalog

I’m a huge fan of merino wool. It’s no secret anymore that it’s one of the best materials for outdoor enthusiasts like myself. Ever since I started shooting images for Minus 33 in 2016 I’ve been able to try out some of the best merino wool gear on the planet, and I’ve never taken this privilege for granted. This fall I was able to be apart of shooting some photographs for Minus 33’s upcoming 2019-2020 catalog. Laura and I went out into the woods for a few days and had blast shooting together. We came back with a ton of awesome images for Minus 33. You can order a catalog for yourself at Minus33.com to see everything we contributed and you can check out a few of my favorite photos from the shoot below.

Gear Review: Alps Mountaineering Red Tail 65 Pack

ALPS Mountaineering is a company that I've only recently begun to work with, but they have been in the game for a long time. They're a family run company, which I really love. They were started back in '93 by a guy named Dennis Brune, who had previously been the head of the outdoor brand Kelty. Since their inception ALPS has grown to produce many camping and hiking products including tents, backpacks, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, air mattresses, and camping furniture like chairs, cots, and tables. The ALPS product I'll be reviewing today is the Red Tail 65L Pack.

Gear Review: SOG Tomcat 3.0

The SOG Tomcat 3.0 is the third generation of the award winning Tomcat series. The original Tomcat folder was released back in the 1980's and was met with widespread love. The newest version of this awesome knife resembles a bit of the original look but adds modern features and updated styling. The Tomcat 3.0 is a beast that anybody will love from the hardcore knife enthusiasts to the amateur knife consumer (like myself).
