XShot Pro Review

  Since getting a GoPro 2 years ago, I’ve wanted a good camera pole (also called selfie sticks, but camera pole sounds way better) to go with it. They let you capture unique angles with your camera, film yourself on your adventure and stick your camera in places you don’t really want your own limbs and […]

Book Review: The Avalanche Handbook

That feeling of being weightless, gliding through the dry, powdery snow. That feeling of wonder as you gaze at the snow-capped peaks surrounding you entirely. That feeling of relaxation as you realize there’s no work, no computers and no boss within 50 kilometers of where you are now. Backcountry touring, whether on a splitboard or […]

Running Gear: The Best Way to Carry Your Phone

The air was warm and the sun was out. I was right in the groove. The perfect song was playing as I weaved back and forth through the trees running through the trees in Linley Valley. Then a slow song came on. Everything slowed down. I forgot about the beautiful trees and water and grass. […]

Floating over the Mud: Hi-Tec’s Sierra Lite I WP Hiking Boot Review

I had the chance recently to try out Hi-Tec’s newest light hiking boots, the Sierra Lite I WP.
