WHAT'S IN YOUR BAG: POSSE, ULTIMATE MOM BAG

As a mother with quite a few little ones running around, I don't always have the time and energy to lug around a heavy diaper bag or purse everyday. The Posse Sling Pack is not only a great everyday bag, but it also has the option of a concealed carry pocket. I'm a parent who packs, so having that option available with such easy access was important to me. Of course, there are the prettier purses out there with some of the same features, but the tactical style of the Posse and it's versatility appealed a little bit more to my husband and I. Being a mom on the go, I'm able to pack e ...READ MORE

ADVENTURE JOURNAL: SKIS AND SWIMSUITS

Skis and swimsuits don’t often go together, but a small group of us decided on an outdoor winter adventure that involved both. Our destination was an interesting collection of natural hot springs called Fifth Water Hot Springs. Early Sunday morning we loaded all of our gear and drove 60 minutes south of Salt Lake City to Spanish Fork Canyon. A few minutes up the canyon and we arrived at a gate for Diamond Fork. During the summer months, the gate is open and the road is paved, but as this is February in Utah, there was no maintenance and the road was covered in snow.We strapped on our cross cou ...READ MORE

HOW-TO GUIDE: WHAT WE LEARNED ABOUT BEING PREPARED FROM IRMA AND HARVEY

Don’t ProcrastinateAlways remember to stock your survival kits and bug out bags before any emergencies. As Hurricane Irma came closer to Florida, it became very difficult for the residents there to obtain supplies. Water bottle prices skyrocketed online. Although officials of Florida discouraged price gouging, many brands were still raising their prices to take advantage of people’s desperate need for essentials. On Amazon, some water bottle prices that were normally $24, were raised to $100. Airlines were also raising their fares to ridiculous prices, making it difficult for anyone that didn' ...READ MORE

GEAR REVIEW: A CANYONEERS REVIEW OF THE VELOX II

Let me start by saying, awesome bag! Now that you know where I stand let’s get started. This bag is an improvement on the already great Velox I, in my opinion, starting with the size and design of the bag. The interior compartments seem roomier and I love the double compression straps on each side bag that allow you to expand the carrying capacity with ease. I mainly use this bag for hiking and technical canyoneering, translation: I beat the crap out of my gear. An average day is 10+ hours of rappelling or climbing with 20+ lbs of gear. All of my bags typically have large holes due to " ...READ MORE
