Altra Trail Shoe Review

[/fusion_text][fusion_text]Prior to our trip to Sedona we were approached by Altra Running and offered shoes to test on the desert trails of the Verde Valley. In doing a little research into Altra we discovered that they have a highly regarded reputation for making outstanding Ultra Marathon and Trail Running shoes. Intrigued by this we accepted their offer and the tested the men’s Altra Superior 2.0 and the ladies Lone Peak 2.5. The Superior 2.0 is designed as a light weight trail running shoe and has won awards as a result of it’s very unique design.

Choosing the Right Camera

[/fusion_text][fusion_text]If you believe in the old hiking and backpacking adage; take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints, kill nothing but time, then you are a trekker after our own heart. And you probably need a good camera. The worst feeling ever is being on your great adventure, seeing the best picture in your mind and not having the right gear to make it happen the way you want to preserve that memory. This is where choosing the right camera is critical. Choosing the right camera for your adventures is no easy task. Cameras are expensive, and if you’re going to be packing them for hiking, camping, or other outdoor activities, you have to consider many things…[read more][/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=”1_3″ last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” hover_type=”none” link=”” border_position=”all” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ animation_offset=”” class=”” id=””][fusion_imageframe lightbox=”no” gallery_id=”” lightbox_image=”” style_type=”none” hover_type=”none” bordercolor=”” bordersize=”0px” borderradius=”0″ stylecolor=”” align=”none” link=”https://earthgear.com/2015/12/best-backpacking-backpacks/” linktarget=”_self” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ animation_offset=”” hide_on_mobile=”no” class=”” id=””] Outdoor Gear Best Backpacks[/fusion_imageframe][fusion_text]

Top 3 Backpacks

[/fusion_text][fusion_text]If you’re like us, you probably spend an incredible amount of time obsessing over the gear you need when you are planning your next adventure. At least as important as the outdoor gear you choose is the pack you get to carry it all. After all, when you’re out on your adventure, your pack is one piece of gear you depend on most to get you and your gear where you want to go. A lot of questions get asked when it’s time to pick the best pack. How long is your trip? What’s your body type? How much can you afford? Is snow involved? What’s your style, how much gear will you be carrying, and is there a chance for bad weather?

Backcountry Technology

[/fusion_text][fusion_text]Some say they seek adventure in the outdoors to escape the trappings of technology, society, and the everyday. We get it. But in a way, advances in technology allow us to truly be free. Want to get lost? Only when we have a solid GPS tracking system can we feel safe enough to fearlessly go out and get lost in the deep backcountry, knowing that we can always find our way home. Want to head outside, into the wild, to be alone and seek respite from others?

Fall Hiking Gear

[/fusion_text][fusion_text]Looking for information on fall hiking and outdoor gear? No offense to the other seasons, but Autumn is the best time to hike throughout much of the Northern Hemisphere. Fall hiking offers the most stunning views of colorful foliage and natural beauty on earth. Not only are there less people on the trails, with summer vacations ending, but there are often more wildlife sightings with animals coming down from the mountains for easier water sources and to bulk up on food before the long winter. Even though there is generally less volatility in weather during the Autumn months, there are still challenges for hikers to consider as they plan for their adventure…[read more][/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=”1_3″ last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” hover_type=”none” link=”” border_position=”all” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ animation_offset=”” class=”” id=””][fusion_imageframe lightbox=”no” gallery_id=”” lightbox_image=”” style_type=”none” hover_type=”none” bordercolor=”” bordersize=”0px” borderradius=”0″ stylecolor=”” align=”none” link=”https://earthgear.com/2015/12/best-camping-tents/” linktarget=”_self” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ animation_offset=”” hide_on_mobile=”no” class=”https://earthgear.com/?p=380″ id=”https://earthgear.com/?p=380″] Outdoor Gear - Best Tents[/fusion_imageframe][fusion_text]
