Tested: ENO DoubleNest Hammock

Growing up, I thought hammocks were fun to climb on, but I never found them particularly comfortable or enticing. Turns out, I got the wrong idea about what a hammock should be! One of my friends got an ENO DoubleNest Hammock and it totally opened my eyes!

Tested: Full-Time Energy Superfruit and Berry Weight Loss Blend

I’m no stranger to energy drinks and weight loss supplements. I’ve had energy drinks of all types, numerous weight loss supplements, and some crazy “all in one” stuff. And that’s what we have here with Full-Time Energy Superfruit and Berry Weight Loss Blend. It’s a concentrated liquid

Tested: MIU COLOR Glass Water Bottle with Tea Infuser

You know what material I avoid more than BPA-containing plastic when it comes to sports water bottles? Glass. It makes zero sense to carry a glass water bottle on a bike ride, run, or even in your gym bag. Even if it’s a stronger type of glass,

Tested: two Ogres Essential-Z Chalk Bag

Chalk bags for rock climbing seem like simple accessories; not really a big deal, not life saving, just something to have. A good one is not really appreciated, but if you get a bad one, you’ll know it. It will spill chalk everywhere, or maybe you can’t

Tested: CLIF Organic Energy Food

Clif Bar keeps expanding into new product lines. Though not what I was expecting, it was only a matter of time before we had CLIF Organic Energy Food. It’s food, in a pouch. Other sports nutrition companies have already offered energy smoothies akin to baby food. But

Tested: MIU COLOR Packable Lightweight Backpack

I thought I graduated from simple little backpacks when I finished high school. Ever since, I’ve been using specialty hydration packs, serious backpacking packs, or at least a fancy laptop-carrying briefcase. But now I find myself with the smallest, lightest backpack I’ve ever owned – the MIU

Tested: GU Electrolyte Brew

Despite GU gel being my absolute favorite for years, I was never drawn to the rest of the GU product line. Even when GU2O was available, I drank something else. But with the launch of the new formula and flavors for GU Electrolyte Brew, that could all

Tested: GU Electrolyte Tablets

Another complement to their energy gels, GU Electrolyte Tablets have been added to the GU product line. These are straight up electrolyte tablets. No carbs, no sugar, no amino acids. Just electrolytes. What’s the point? Hydration. That’s it. If you want to get electrolytes for better hydration,

Tested: GU Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Drink

To complement the Roctane gel, you can add GU Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Drink into your fueling strategy. The key words here are ultra endurance. It’s specifically made for demanding situations like high-intensity events lasting 4+ hours, providing lots and lots of carbs and electrolytes per serving,

Tested: GU Chomps

I love GU gel. It’s absolutely my #1 favorite gel. I’d say it’s the best formula and the best tasting. And it yields the best results. Similarly, I’ve been loving all the energy chews I’ve tried (Powerbar gel blasts, Clif Shot bloks, even Honey Stinger chews.) Every

Tested: KT Tape

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard about kinesiology tape. You’ve probably seen many pro athletes using it. I wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve used it yourself. There are a few brands out there now, but KT Tape is probably the most popular among

Tested: Columbia Sportswear Cool Creek Stretch Cargo Pants

For as many cycling and running tights as I have, and wind pants, and skiing/snowboarding pants, I’ve never been much for hiking pants. I never really liked them. Then I found some pants that looked awesome, at a reasonable price, and couldn’t say no. They were the

Retailer Review: LuckyVitamin.com

Finding a place to buy supplements is not difficult. But finding a place with a good website, wide selection, and fair prices, that you can trust, can be a challenge. LuckyVitamin.com is one of the many online stores selling vitamins, supplements, personal care products, snacks, tea, and

Tested: Gramicci Original G Climbing Pant

Sandstone and gritstone rock faces are unforgiving surfaces. They also happen to be frequently encountered surfaces when it comes to rock climbing in Pennsylvania and West Virginia. One slip on this stuff, and it could shred lightweight hiking pants. So when I decided to take up rock

Tested: BeetElite NeoShot

You must have heard about beet juice by now. It’s been all the rage with cyclists and triathletes for years, and it recently made national news after being used by some of the top collegiate football teams. If you’ve used it, you might agree that it works.
