Mammut Mercury Jacket Review
blog 19 Aug 2014 | 2:57 pm
The Mammut Mercury Jacket has become my favorite jacket. From negative ten degree days on the slopes, to chilly July evenings in the mountains, this jacket has proven to be worth its weight in gold. The Mammut Mercury jacket is a lightweight fleece jacket with a low-profile hood, good looks, and zippered hand warmer pockets. It is great either layered or by itself.
The jacket is VERY soft. Even after several months’ worth of trips through the washing machine, it’s still soft.
The low-profile hood is warm and soft and it will also fit under a helmet. When the jacket is fully zipped...
ENO – Flexfly Utility Tarp
Blog 19 Aug 2014 | 2:11 pm
I love tarps. If I'm going on a day-hike, to the beach, backpacking, car-camping, canoeing, or snowshoeing, I will always have a shelter with me. It doesn't matter if there's sun, rain, wind or snow, or simply the possibility that we'll be spending the night out, a tarp will handle all of those things. My most versatile, durable and functional tarp came to me by way of Eagle Nest Outfitters. It's the Flexfly.
Last year I received the Flexfly Utility Tarp to test and I've been putting it to some long-term testing over the past year.
The Flexfly utility tarp is great for...

Third Beach to Strawberry Point
blog 19 Aug 2014 | 10:57 am
The Olympic Coast boasts some of Washington’s most beautiful and challenging terrain, offering stunning vistas no matter the season or weather. While the coast is often characterized by the Third Beach to Oil City 17-mile thru-hike, it also provides shorter trips for backpackers simply looking for a weekend getaway. The stretch of coast from Third Beach to Strawberry Point is notorious for its stunning beaches and twists of trails punctuated by ladders. While it does require hikers to time the tides, the planning is definitely worth it.
The start at the trailhead is innocuous, boxed in by an almost claustrophobic net of alder...
