Field Tested: Victorinox SwissTool Spirit XC Ratchet

The multitool is a grossly unappreciated invention. Maybe it’s because we simply take it for granted right up to the point when we need it to get us out of a tight jam. What is so special about the multitool? Would you believe it has been around since the age of the Roman Empire more than 1,800 years ago? Those first tools were issued to soldiers for daily use around camp and look strikingly similar to some available today. In… read more »

FiberFix: The $6 tool every overlander should have

The modern four-wheel drive enthusiast carries many tools, but few are as cheap or versatile as a good old roll of duct-tape. From repairing hoses and reattaching broken parts, to the crazy extremes of patching an airplane, this silver miracle can almost always find a way to get you home, or at least to the repair shop. There's no doubt that it has been the absolute king of odd-ball fixes since its invention, but now a new product is poised to usurp the throne. It's called FiberFix,… read more »

The Lion’s Last Roar

Around the World in 800 Days: Driving on the Roof of the World – Part 2

Our adventure continued from here up the much greener Shakhdara Valley to the mountain village of Tusion.

Much to our amazement when we reached the summit the last house had a full sized bus parked in its driveway, begging the question how exactly did they get it up there? On the mountain plateau we found an amazing camp spot nestled between two lush peaks.… read more »

Wild Teton Hearts

I watch Sam’s face as I hit the high note of my rendition of Third Eye Blind, watching for a reaction as he narrows his eyes on the road. We've entered into Wyoming territory and there's a massive dark blue cloud looming in the distance. We're two weeks into our summer road trip at this point and have arrived at the "lets try and see how much we can annoy each other" phase. I'm not sure why we like to play this… read more »

Bikepacking: Five MIPS Equipped Helmets to Protect Your Mellon

Over the course of three decades of cycling I have owned countless helmets. From my first race-legal leather Cinelli, yes I’m that old, to the latest models with active brain-saving features, my head has worn them all. Today’s offerings are a marvel of engineering and are light, comfortable, and well ventilated.  They also have protective properties none of us would have dreamed of just a few years ago. The most recent development comes in the form of a proprietary technology… read more »
