Gear On The Go: September 2019


Our favourite season! September in the West. We are six months into our tour, with only two left to go. Exactly where did the time run off to? This month, we’ve planned a massive trip out west to total a 50-mile loop about The 3 Sisters. Roxy is raising funds for The Cairn Project, an organization that supports obtaining young females and girls outdoors! Beneath are a couple of of the things we will be bringing with us on our massive trip. Space is often restricted in the van, so we’re often searching for the most effective gear to maintain close by.

Mountain Residence: Chicken Fajita Bowl

Chicken Fajitas in the backcountry? What a time to be alive! The Chicken Fajita Bowl from mountain property has turn into a staple in our backpacking diet regime. Created with genuine pieces of tender, cooked chicken, rice, black beans, bell peppers, corn, onions, and seasonings, we often appear forward to this meal on the trail. The most effective aspect is that there are no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives, only genuine meals to fuel your adventures. Attempt this on a tortilla for an added bonus. This also tends to make an superb gluten-free of charge alternative, anything we are super delighted about. Retain an eye out for Mountain Residence in the subsequent couple of months, they have some extraordinary new recipes coming out that are positive to turn into favorites.

Sea To Summit: Discover Down Double Sleeping Bag

Becoming in the backcountry does not imply you have to be uncomfortable. We lately took a 3-evening backpacking trip to Chicago Basin in Southwest Colorado. At evening, it dipped to a balmy 38 degrees in mid-August. The double version of the Discover Down Sleeping Bag from Sea To Summit kept us warm and cozy. And, we got to cuddle all evening without the need of worry of sliding off our pad or ending up amongst them. The double has a constructed in coupler that keeps you securely on your sleeping pads. We have been the fantastic temperature all evening, very encouraged for snugglers. The sleeping back is packed complete of ULTRA-DRY Down with a 750 loft, so you will keep warm and dry all evening (at least till the 3AM wake up contact to get started climbing mountains).

Lowe Alpine: Halcyon

The Halcyon is a contemporary take on a standard mountain pack. Created with winter in thoughts, this pack would make a wonderful companion although winter ski touring, ice climbing, and summer time rock climbing. The 35:40 liter is massive sufficient to carry your rack, rope, skis, and ice-tools. The Halcyon also is accessible in a 45: 50-liter version. We’ve made use of it as an amazing rope bag and will be waiting till winter to place it to its accurate test. A rope fits comfy inside, and the side open is wonderful for grabbing snacks without the need of disturbing inside contents. We like the gear loops on the hip belts for simple access tools. We appear forward to strapping on some skis, snowboards, and ice axes with the reinforced strap program and choose retainer panel and obtaining out for a winter adventure.
