cooler, soft cooler, gear, hunting

Rollerblade, inline skates, Outside Bozeman
Mike England
Is ’blading back? I sure hope so, because I’ve been having a blast with my Maxxum 90 inline skates from Rollerblade. Read more >>
Leupold, rangefinder, Outside Bozeman
Mike England
For a compact rangefinder that reaches out past 1,000 yards and doesn’t require two hours of prep time with the manual, check out the Leupold RX-1200i TBR/W. That’s a lot of letters and numbers, for sure, but the name is as arcane as this product gets. Read more >>
Outside Bozeman, duffel bag, CFS, STIO
Brian England
The CFS Duffel from Stio is a great all-around bag with a generous 40L of storage space. It’s not as special-purpose as a traditional dry bag; it isn’t going to keep your gear fully waterproof if you dump on the Mad Mile. Read more >>

Sabre Bear Spray & Bear Horn
Mike England
There’s a new player in the bear-spray game, and they’ve added a new line of defense: the safety horn. It makes sense, right? Disrupt the raging bear’s behavior with as many sensory inputs as possible. Read more >>

Melissa Doar
When it comes to recreating in the great outdoors, hydration is essential. Thanks to the Katadyn BeFree filtration water flask, the guesswork has been taken out of where your next drink will come from, giving you a little extra peace of mind when venturing into the backcountry. Read more >>
Native Eyewear Sidecar
Chris McCarthy
This time of year can be frustrating—I leave the house with clear skies but by the time I get to the trailhead the clouds have rolled in. If I go without shades on cloudy days, my eyes dry out from the wind, but if I wear my sunglasses I struggle to see in the trees. Read more >>
Lost Remedy Joint & Muscle Cream
Tucker, David

Avex 3Sixty Pour
Tucker, David
Nothing beats hot coffee, especially on a crisp mountain morning. But all too often, after, I go to drown my work-day sorrows in a hot cup o’ joe and it’s stone cold. Not anymore, as the 3Sixty Pour Thermos from Avex has changed all that. Read more >>
