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

Tested: La Sportiva Oxygym Climbing Shoe

You can never have too many rock climbing shoes. Which is one reason why I picked up a pair of the new La Sportiva Oxygym. Another reason is that I love the bright colors! And perhaps most importantly, there’s the fact that I was able to get

Tested: Mad Rock Phoenix Climbing Shoe

Looking for an entry-level rock climbing shoe that’s super comfortable? The Mad Rock Phoenix might be the shoe for you. It uses a simple design, neutral color scheme, real leather, lace up design, and a low price (retail is $75.) They actually look a lot like a

Tested: Oskri Coconut Bar

When the number of new energy bars becomes too much to handle, it’s good to have friends who know your tastes. Fortunately, one of my best friends is just as dedicated to finding healthy energy bars as I am, and he tipped me off to something called

Tested: Five Ten Rogue Shoe

It’s a popular climbing shoe for good reason. It’s comfortable all day, priced right, and the rubber is as sticky as can be. I’m talking about the Five Ten Rogue. For seasoned climbers, it’s probably a boring shoe. But for beginners, or casual climbers, it has just

Tested: Salonpas Deep Pain Relieving Gel

I’d heard the name many times before, but I never knew what Salonpas made until finding a recent press release touting their DEEP pain relieving gel. “Deep pain relief? Must be manly stuff! Guess I was wrong.” Because beforehand, I always thought it must be a line

Tested: BioTerra Herbs

You have to be careful with all supplement companies, but especially with new ones. That’s just the nature of the industry. Even more suspect are the companies with neat names, colorful boxes, and fun pictures. (This stuff reminds me of Joe Camel, and we all know how

Tested: Yes4All AccuPoint Foam Roller

Upon first glance, you might think that the Yes4All AccuPoint Roller is a cheaper alternative to the Grid or Rumble Roller. After all, it has the solid PVC core for durability and the foam knobs for a deep massage, at a surprisingly low price. I needed something

Tested: YogaSmoga Nirvana Short (Finally Some Men’s Yoga Clothing!)

If you’re a man, you’re going to face two challenges when shopping for yoga apparel. First, it’s all really expensive. With running and cycling, you can get basic options, fancy stuff, or anything in between, depending on your budget. With yoga, the choice is between the high-end

Tested: Omnibar

Very few energy bars contain just a handful of ingredients. Even fewer contain sweet potatoes. And fewer still contain beef and sweet potatoes. Needless to say, the Omnibar is not your typical energy bar. Sure, it comes in a bright wrapper, and it’s a long and thin
