You don’t have to travel far and wide in order to find adventure. Urban adventures can be had close to home and scheduled almost everyday. Here is some of the essential gear you need to navigate your way around a city, while looking good and having fun in the process.
Back in the early 90s, I spent quite some time in Nepal. During this period, I purchased numerous hand-knit wool sweaters that I trekked in, climbed in, and stayed warm in, all of which I still treasure today. Sherpa Adventure Gear keeps this hand-knit wool sweater tradition alive while supporting the women who create them in the process. By adding some technical performance elements, these wool sweater jackets will be a versatile piece in your gear arsenal for years to come.
The warmer weather of summer always brings with it an uptick in activity, to which my Endomondo account can attest. Over the past few months, the trails around Pittsburgh have served as a head-to-head testing ground for outdoor shorts from Outdoor Research, Icebreaker, Sherpa Adventure Gear, Salomon, and Mountain Hardwear. The purpose of the test was to look for shorts that covered a wide variety of fabrics and designs, and that could be used for multiple activities both on and off the trail. You will find my thoughts on each below.
I have all but given up on synthetic base layers for use during multi-day outdoor activities simply because of the stink factor. Not wanting to rid my pack of them completely, I have found a new and improved purpose for my poor polyester outcasts as warm and comfy camp shirts. There is nothing better than rolling into camp all sweaty, setting up your tent, then changing into a dry, cozy top in which to lounge around camp and sleep.
