    Tent of the week: The North Face "Kings Canyon 3"

    It's been another week and I'd better say something about this tent or I'll fall behind! The storefront folks are already setting up a new tent for this week (spoiler: BD Mesa).

    Marmot whips up another orange treat

    Marmot found a few things to spruce up this year, and the Aura 2P tent made it on the list. I've got a special place in my heart for the original version, so let's hope they didn't ruin my favorite tent!     Since I own the original, it makes sense that I point out all the little changes and...

    Google is making it easier to play with their toys! Most of us have seen the StreetView car driving around and thought about the places we would go with it. Now you have your chance--though maybe you should stay off the road with this piece of tech. You can hit their site here for the sign up.

    Ultimate Direction's Ultimate Ultra-runner vest

    Ok, Ultimate Direction really hit one out of the park this year. Their "signature series" of ultra-runner hydration vests have been some of our more popular items and we get a lot of questions about them. Why not detail a few features? Jake says, "It's a pleasurable fit."   The "AK Race Vest" is their most lightweight pack. It's not...

    Annular Eclipse

    Yesterday, Eugene got to (sort of) see the annular solar eclipse. It was largely obstructed by clouds, but the clouds did offer a good opportunity to capture the eclipse on film. Below are a couple images taken during the maximum eclipse.
