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 […]

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.

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.

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. […]

Tested: ENERGYbits

Not much really catches my attention anymore when it comes to energy drinks. You’ve got double or triple caffeine, miracle herbs, superfruit juices, and various extracts from animals and insects. But what if I told you there was an energy supplement that was basically a bunch of […]

Tested: Bombas Athletic Socks

There’s a new sock company making a name for themselves, and that name is Bombas socks. Bombas is latin for bumble bee, which explains the logo. So today I have yet another review of athletic socks, with the differentiating factor being the tons of hype around these […]
