    Under Armour Eyewear – Capture Sunglasses

    These sweet sunglasses from UA have become my go-to eyewear for nearly all conditions in the outdoors. Here is a link to a video I put up on YouTube   Box Opening UnderArmour Capture Shiny Black Blue Storm Polarized Sunglasses Showing off my UA Capture Sunglasses – see that blue reflection? I took these out just a couple days after I shot the box opening video linked above, and fell in love with them rather quickly. I have usually used a couple of other brands for when I’m outside in my contacts, but haven’t used anything except these now since I opened that box. They’re really that good. I’ll share…

    Saxx Underwear Vibe Review

    I tested a pair of the Saxx Vibe at the St. George City Half Marathon, and received a pair of the Kinetic and Subzero to try. From the Saxx website: “Developed by an athlete and avid outdoorsman, SAXX Underwear was founded with a mission to revolutionize the core staple of every wardrobe.” I really enjoyed the Vibe, even with the comfort fit it was the perfect underwear for beneath my tights in the 35F day for the Half Marathon. Here are closeup views of the mesh support panels and the boxes for the Kinetic and Subzero. I’ll be testing them soon, so stay in the loop. I love the comfort…

    Feetures Max Cushion Elite No-Show Tab Running Sock Pre-Review

    View Feetures Ultra Thin Elite on Amazon HERE I normally prefer a slightly taller sock, more like the traditional cycling height ankle, but when I saw the max cushion elite at the OR Show in January 2016 I decided to give them a try. I’m so glad I did. They fit into my running shoes just like my old dead worn out pair of the slightly thick socks I normally wear and provided all the cushioning and support I need. I liked them so much I wore them at the St. George City Half Marathon just a week after the OR Show. You know it’s a bad idea to try anything…

    Suunto Ambit3 Peak HR Unboxing

    See on Amazon HERE The SUUNTO Ambit3 Peak HR is a huge step above the Ambit2 S. This watch has Bluetooth connectivity to allow you to use a wide variety of pods and sensors, such as the Wahoo Blue SC bike pod HERE. You can also connect to the mobile app from Movescount, which was a main selling point for me to lust after this watch. I received it as a Christmas gift and eagerly opened the box and started the setup. Since I already have a Movescount account it was really simple to connect and begin editing the settings for the various built-in training modes. This watch also allows…

    Icebug Insoles Unboxing

    I recently returned from the 2016 Winter Market, the ORShow in Salt Lake City. While there I got the opportunity to check out and test a pair of the ICEBUG Slim/Medium Insoles with Arch Flex System® Technology. Check them out on AMAZON.  Running shoe insoles with energy return zones improvement over stock insoles. I replaced the stock insoles in my Pearl Izumi Road N2 running shoes, which are neutral cushioning running shoes with moderately thick insoles. After this video I had the opportunity to wear them for my walk to work from the train station and back and all day in the office and I have to admit they felt really…
