Showers Pass Outfits the Entire Family Year Round

Showers Pass has the whole family equipped for all seasons and every weather condition. They were nice enough to send my wife and me some outerwear to try out now that Fall is upon us, the Men’s Trailhead Bamboo-Merino Hoodie and the Women’s Rogue Hoodie. Both demonstrate the high quality that Showers Pass has become known for.


Olivers Passage Pants Are Pricey but Oh So Comfortable!

I’m not one to spend a lot on clothes. When I need new suits, I wait for a sale at Joseph A. Bank. When I need new casual clothes, I wait for a sale at the Gap. But, after getting the $158 Passage Pant from Olivers Apparel, I was reminded that you often get what you pay for!


Waterhoody Will Shield You from the Sun’s Harmful Rays

Sun-kissed skin may make you look healthy but as we know, excessive exposure to the sun can cause irreparable damage. As a parent, I try my best to protect my children’s skin from the sun by using highly rated EWG sunscreen and SPF clothing, which is why Waterhoody is now one of my essential summer items.


Olivers Zuma Swim Trunk: The MVP of the Summer

With Summer in full swing, it’s time to purchase the only swimsuit you’ll need this year: Olivers Zuma Trunk. Made with stretchy, quick drying fabric, these swim trunks are versatile enough to go from running, to beach volleyball, to a midnight swim. Designed and made in Los Angeles, these are the most comfortable swim trunks you’ll ever wear.



Protect and Free Your Feet with Xero Shoes!

Several years ago, “minimalism” was in for running shoes. Companies were falling all over each other to make thin-soled shoes. That fad has mostly passed, for better or worse, but the companies left standing are the ones making high quality, truly excellent footwear. Xero Shoes is one of them, and we’ve been testing their Z-Trek Sandals on many adventures!


Add a Bit of Flair to Your Outfit with ODD SOX

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a huge fan of what could be considered “funny” socks. I vividly remember having a pair of socks in High School I purchased from Spencer’s with a wacky phrase on them that I would wear in the summer that stood out against the typical black or white socks you’d see in…



Nova LED Jacket Marries Safety with Style!

I used to do a lot of early morning runs when I was training for half marathons. Once, I was staying with my parents, and my mother ran into me as I was headed out while it was still dark. She looked over my reflective gear and the headlamp I had over my hat and remarked, “Be safe, you look…


Support Your National Parks in Style With the New Brooks Cascadia Line!

Brooks Cascadia trail shoes have long been seen as some of the best on the market. The soles are designed for traction, they feature a rock plate for extra foot protection, and they’re cushioned enough that you won’t be in agony every time you step on a root.  But Brooks just upped the game big time with their new REI…


You’ll Love Wearing Olivers’ Terminal Tech Tee

When I’m not working, my “uniform” of choice is a pair of jeans or shorts and a monochrome t-shirt from either Express or the Banana Republic. Those t-shirts are made largely from cotton; they’re soft and wear well but need to be washed after every wear. The Terminal Tech Tee from Olivers takes a different approach, and I’m rather pleased.



Tavik Interface System is the Only Outerwear You’ll Need

It got cold here in New Jersey last week. Fortunately, I was armed with a review sample of Tavik’s new Interface system. This isn’t just a jacket. And it isn’t just a series of outerwear. No, the Tavik Interface system is truly an outerwear system That offers a ton of features and is ready for pretty much any weather.


A Skeptic’s Review of ActiveEdge Gear

When I first heard about Active Edge, I was skeptical. Carly had written about them some time ago, and her review left me curious. When I was offered an Active Edge shirt to try, I wasn’t sure what my experience might be. This post holds my subjective thoughts on the product.

If you balk at the idea of a $68 pair of athletic shorts you can stop reading this review right now. Yes, the OLIVERS All Over Shorts are gym shorts re-envisioned from the thread up. The result is a pair of shorts that are pricey but may very well be worth the price. Here’s a quick look.


The OLIVERS Brief Will Let You “Think Outside the Boxer”

I’ve backed some great- and some not so great- products on Kickstarter. This time out is something that I think will stand out from the crowd. No, it’s not a tech project but rather it is a clothing project that brings technical know-how to an everyday garment. The OLIVERS Brief promises to be an uber-comfy boxer brief. As the project…


Makers & Riders NEOSHELL PANTS Commuter Weatherproof Jeans Review

When a review sample of the Makers & Riders NEOSHELL PANTS 3-Season Commuter Weatherproof Jeans arrived, I wasn’t initially sure what to make of them. They are light and thin, warm as hell, somewhat baggy at the top, and taper at the ankle. After wearing them for a couple of days I just call them great and want more.
