Sierra Designs Mobile Mummy Bag: Total Comfort

I was always a little suspicious of what my father called the “mummy bag” when I would go camping as a kid. I wasn’t a fan of horror films, and I didn’t know if it meant I would be sleeping in something a mummy was buried in. But I found that a mummy bag is maybe the best design for a sleeping bag.

In just under two minutes, the Jetboil Flash Cooking System has boiling water ready for some instant soup or a hot cup of cocoa. Continue reading

bike-handlebars-helios

As an avid biker, constantly thrusting my arms left and right to single my movement, I am in need of a safer notification system. Cars have everything in this regard. Turn signals, break lights, running lights, high beams. They are outfitted with electronics that announce their presence to guarantee safety.

Bicycles, are much more discreet. And considering that us cyclists are a bit more vulnerable than a driver, we could use something serious, like Helios Bars. Continue reading
