Why Many Backpackers are Switching to Internal Frame Backpacks

For many years, it was unheard of to see a backpacker who did not have a backpack with an external frame. External frame backpacks just made sense to backpackers because these carry weight high and away from your back so that you can walk with a better posture and have the frame off of your […]


The Sturdiness of an African Walking Stick

I like going on nature trails and spending time in the wilderness. It’s something that has always been soothing to me and I’ve been doing it for decades. Now that I’m starting to get a little bit older and a little bit frailer, I don’t like to go on the more strenuous hikes, but I […]


What You Should Put in Your Hiking Backpack

When you’re going on a hike, it’s important to be prepared in every sense of the word. You don’t want something to happen while you’re out on a hike and not be prepared for it. There are plenty of things that could potentially happen and you need to have some sort of strategy with how […]


Why I Never Go in the Woods Without My Princeton Tec Headlamps

I am constantly going outside and embarking on adventures. I take hiking excursions, biking excursions, and even go cave diving when it’s available.

Watching Birds with Alpen Binoculars

Bird-watching has always been a fun and relaxing hobby for me. It’s something that was introduced to me by my grandmother, who gave me a book about all of the birds that lived in our area and what could be done to spot them or tell them apart from other birds. I read through the […]


Choosing from Backpacking Backpacks

Backpacking has long been a hobby of mine; it’s something I started doing in my late teens and it’s something I still enjoy today. Personally, I like to go backpacking by myself because it allows me to get some alone time and feel the freedom of going off the grid for a little while. It […]


Keeping Liquid in a Bota Bag

It’s important to stay hydrated as well as you can when you’re spending time out in the wilderness. You want to ensure that you have a source of fresh water at all times, so that you don’t have to worry about getting thirsty. If you got lost or anything like that, this becomes even more […]


A Military Day Pack is Good for Hiking with the Kids

Ever since I was a little kid, I have absolutely loved going hiking in the wilderness. This was something that my father introduced me to when I was small and taught me to really love. When I am outdoors, I feel as if I am part of something a lot bigger than myself. This year […]
