Ultimate Direction AK Race Vest Review
blog 28 Jul 2014 | 2:50 pm
The Ultimate Direction AK Race Vest was designed by Anton Krupicka— hence his initials in the product name. Anton has won numerous 100-mile and 50-mile races, so his pack is likely just what you need for your weekend trail runs or summit pushes after work. The pack sports twin water bottle pockets, a main compartment for gear or a reservoir, four smaller pockets, and a power net mesh that expands out to 4 liters for storing miscellaneous gear, like a windbreaker or a warming layer.

How to Clean a WhisperLite Stove
blog 28 Jul 2014 | 11:06 am
The WhisperLite stove by MSR has been one of the most popular backpacking stoves on the market since its inception for a reason. It’s relatively light, packable, and easy to use, but more important than any of these, for me, is that fact that the WhisperLite is virtually bombproof. Always reliable in the backcountry when you need it most— no matter how much soot, sand, or dirt you expose it to— the WhisperLite is easy to clean and repair. Have a WhisperLite, but not sure what to do when you see that pitiful orange flame? Follow these easy steps and...
