As well as featuring cool new gear from the best brands in the outdoor industry, we publish in-depth outdoor gear reviews and buyer’s guides to help you learn about quality products designed to perform in all of life’s adventures.
Outdoor activities covered by our expert team include hiking, backpacking, road and trail running, camping, skiing, mountain biking and stand-up paddleboarding.
Gear is trail-tested right here in Northern California, unless, of course, we’re road tripping in our Sprinter Campervan to places close to our heart such as Bend, Oregon, or discovering new adventurous destinations.
Our site also contains informative articles sharing how to live a healthy lifestyle by way of following a whole food plant-based diet and lots of advice to help you enjoy trail, mountain or water sports, including tips on running technique and ultra marathon training.
Kepler is our resident trail dog and he writes many of his adventure dog gear reviews from his perspective – each one, a joyous experience to read! 🙂
