Mountain Hardwear Sarafin long-sleeve bomber jacket

The name of the Mountain Hardware Sarafin long-sleeve bomber jacket ($130) doesn’t really do it justice. It’s not really a “jacket” but a sweater and a durable one at that. Made in Italy, the Sarafin is made of a double-knit recycled… Continue Reading →

ZOIC Navaeh shorts

The ZOIC Navaeh ($85) is a cross-country/all-mountain mountain bike short. Before I dive into the review, a moment of painful reflection is needed. I’m in the unfortunate position of starting mountain biking in the early 1980’s. Unfortunate because in those… Continue Reading →

The Timbuk2 Sunset Rack Trunk 

What a joy bike picnic’ing is with the Timbuk2 Sunset Rack Trunk ($110). All the stresses of life, the endless supply of inept douche canoe’s that the Universe has strewn along the Gear Gal Marie Highway of Life, suddenly seem… Continue Reading →

Sierra Designs Mobile Mummy 800 2-season bag

The Sierra Designs Mobile Mummy 800 2-season ($359) is more like an 800 down-filled robe than a sleeping bag. But a sleeping bag it is, especially if you’re not keen to getting out of a warm bag during the night… Continue Reading →
