Field Tested: Big Agnes Meaden DownTek Jacket

There are certain pieces of gear I consider––essential. Being prone to wander far from the comforts of a heater, my insulation layers are often the only thing keeping me from becoming a six foot tall popsicle.

Front Runner Expander Chair

People love new features on their products. Each year manufacturers of every type and class make just enough changes on their products to make consumers think they HAVE to have it, Apple anyone? While I’d like to think our industry is exempt, it may be the biggest offender of all. Want a ten-room tent with cup holders in the walls, screened front porch, and skylights? They’ve got it. Need an oven or deep fryer at your camp? No problem. How about… read more »

A Budget Overlander, Forester Part III: Kitting It Out

The first time I packed up the Forester for an overnight camping trip the rear end sagged down to the bump stops, it clearly wasn't the kind of "truck" I'm used to driving. Building this car has been a long lesson in keeping things simple and light. Though Subarus are built like Legos, modifications and cargo have to be carefully planned out to maintain a good balance between weight, handling, and power. Mechanical Upgrades The Forester's brakes are adequate out of the box, but if… read more »
