post铁人世界锦标赛将于2021年离开夏威夷:2022年的新日期、格式设置首次出现在GearJunkie

铁人队官员推迟并暂时将2021赛季的世锦赛迁至犹他州圣乔治市。比赛将于2022年晚些时候回归夏威夷,比赛形式将有所改观,专业领域将更加广阔。

lei和#8217;他今年在夏威夷度假。2021年铁人世界锦标赛的运动员们将在犹他州度过难关。9月24日,周四,铁人宣布决定今年搬迁&8217;s comp从夏威夷科纳到犹他州圣乔治,引用了新冠病毒的物流和健康问题。

The2021年铁人节将于5月7日举行,最初计划于10月初举行,随后推迟至2月,2022年。

机动不是’;这并不奇怪;新冠病毒和随之而来的旅行限制阻止了2020年的活动,今年在这方面也没有什么不同。但这确实标志着夏威夷40年来——以及国际捕鲸委员会历史上——第一次获胜’;我不能主持这次活动“圣乔治加紧努力,确保铁人运动员将获得2021年世界锦标赛,即使推迟到2022年。我们都刚刚目睹了为什么这个特殊的地方被称为"耐力之地",我们相信,我们将在5月份获得出色的冠军,;铁人队总裁兼首席执行官安德鲁·梅西克(Andrew Mesick)说。

也就是说,这一举措不是永久性的——组织者正在为凯卢亚·科纳(Kailua Kona)在2022年10月重返铁人世界锦标赛做准备。

2022年铁人世界锦标赛的新模式;在科纳举行的世界铁人锦标赛将为运动员提供一种新的两天比赛形式,其中包括女子’;定于10月6日举行,男子’;定于10月8日。这一变化在几个方面带来了重大好处。

明年’;s比赛将于明年举行’;s的资格赛以及推迟到2020年和2021年的资格赛,这意味着竞争对手的数量将是任何给定年份的2到3倍。专业领域将扩展到包括50名男性和50名男性,以及估计总共5000名年龄组男性和女性。

分配数字可以让组织更容易地管理关键的比赛方面,并减少任何一站比赛期间的过度拥挤。

“我们预计2022年10月的比赛将是独特的和历史性的,”梅西克说。“在Kailua Kona举行的两天比赛满足了运动员对参加世界锦标赛的巨大需求,使我们能够接待延期的运动员,并更加注重展示我们的男女职业比赛。”

铁人与当地经济

And then there’s the economic aspect. Kona, which has hosted the IWC since 1981, is something of a destination spot because of the event. The financial losses resulting from back-to-back cancellations in 2020 and 2021 are locally palpable. The new format could provide a much-needed shot in the arm for local businesses.

“While the iconic event has provided long-lasting economic benefits to our island, what’s sometimes missed is the transformation of Kona as a lifestyle destination because of Ironman,” said Ross Birch, executive director of the Island of Hawaii Visitors Bureau. “We are in full support of Ironman’s change to host a two-day race format that enables the opportunity for all qualifying athletes from the past two-plus years to compete as well as giving the local economy a chance to benefit and recoup lost tourism opportunities.”

Concern surrounding the economic hardship experienced by Kona is not lost on IRONMAN’s leadership. In July 2020, the organization launched the Kahiau Together food drive, which provides bundles of fresh, healthy food to locals in need at the Kona International Marketplace. To date, IRONMAN has served over 130,000 meals.

When asked about IRONMAN’s impact on the local region, Hawaii County mayor Mitch Roth said, “[As] our island’s premier sporting event, Ironman has been a trusted community partner for over 40 years, and we’re ever grateful for their willingness and ability to adapt to our community’s needs and contribute to its vibrancy.”

新墨西哥州&8217;美国白沙国家公园的化石表明,人类居住在北美的时间比以前想象的早数千年。

白沙国家公园的研究人员发现了以前认为不存在的过去的证据。他们的发现揭示了至少23000年前人类占领图拉罗萨盆地的证据。先前的知识表明人类没有’;“别过来了,直到几千年后

&8220;这些令人难以置信的发现表明,白沙国家公园不仅是世界级的娱乐目的地,而且还是一个了不起的科学实验室,已经产生了突破性的基础研究成果;国家公园管理局局长玛丽·索特说。

Contrary to the previous consensus, the new findings confirm that the earliest known humans lived in North America before the last ice age closed migration routes from Asia.

“This study illustrates the process of science. New evidence can shift long-held paradigms,” said USGS Acting Rocky Mountain Regional Director Allison Shipp.

White Sands National Park houses the world’s largest-known collection of Pleistocene ice age fossilized footprints. Footprints made by humans, Columbian mammoths, sabertooth cats, and dire wolves have all been found there.

These footprints were only found because of a sizable collaborative effort. Researchers at White Sands, the NPS, the USGS, Bournemouth University, University of Arizona, and Cornell University all worked on dating this discovery.

Colnago makes the RFID tag inextricable from the frame by embedding it within the downtube. The tag will connect each bike to the Automotive Blockchain ledger. The ledger, accessible by anyone via MyLime’s platform, will hold unalterable records about the frame’s manufacture, transport, and sales history.

MyLime’s smartphone app will grant access to the information in the bike’s digital passport. When a new owner purchases the frame, that person can manage the transfer of ownership with MyLime’s certified process. And because MyLime distributes its cloud-based storage, the data’s integrity is guaranteed — a registered bike’s records can’t be faked or redacted (allegedly).

Runner-Up: Atlas Apex-MTN

Atlas Apex MTN

These snowshoes tick all the important boxes. They’re comfortable, grippy, durable, and easy to use. The spring-loaded suspension makes for a more natural feel and energy-saving rebound.

The flexible frame maximizes grip on uneven terrain by allowing the binding and crampon to move independently. The heel lift is easy to use and makes the Atlas Apex-MTN ($300) well-suited to mountainous ascents.

The BOA binding system makes finding a comfortable fit easy. If you’re looking for a pair of snowshoes that can do it all, this all-mountain pair is a winner.

Weight: 3 lb. 12.8 oz./4 lb. 3.2 oz.

Heel lift: Yes
Max weight: 180 lb./235 lb.

Best Budget: Chinook Trekker

Chinook Trekker

If you’re a beginner who’s completely unsure if you’ll enjoy snowshoeing or only plan to go just once a year, this might be the right pick. They do well for short treks, but nothing further into the alpine.

From the bindings to the crampons, the Chinook Trekker ($80) is a budget buy. The aluminum teeth on the bottom have several limitations. First, as there are only a few traction teeth underfoot, traction is not as secure. We found ourselves slipping and sliding on steep terrain.

Second, aluminum is not an ideal material for traction teeth. It bends easily and is really only suited to very light and fluffy conditions.

The ratchet straps were fairly easy to use, but not as simple or secure as higher-end models. If budget is your top consideration, grab a set of the Chinook Trekkers. But if you plan to snowshoe regularly, consider upgrading to a pair that will last longer and grow with you.

Weight: 3.91 lb./4.01 lb./4.3 lb./4.95 lb./5.43 lb.
Lengths: 19″/22″/25″/30″/36″
Heel lift: No

Best for Beginners: Tubbs Xplore Kit

Tubbs Xplore Kit

An inclusive kit is a great way to start out. And Tubbs provides an excellent option with the Xplore Kit ($183). Each kit includes a pair of Xplore snowshoes, trekking poles, and gaiters. Available for both men and women, this kit will have you trekking through snow in no time.

The Xplore snowshoes are perfect for easier trekking on trails. The Quickpull bindings are easy to adjust, and we appreciate that they release with a single press of a button. Our testers found the upturned tails made for easier trekking and were more intuitive for beginners.

The adjustable poles worked well, and we found the gaiters compatible with a variety of boots. All in all, this is a great all-inclusive, beginner-to-intermediate option.

Weight: 3 lb. 10 oz.
Lengths: 21″/25″/30″
Heel lift: No
Max weight: 300 lb. (men’s)/ 250 lb. (women’s)

Cons: Not made for difficult terrain

Beginner Runner-Up: MSR Evo

MSR Evo

The MSR Evo ($140) is one of the most versatile and affordable options out there. And it’s no surprise they’re a go-to for beginners. The steel traction bars are strong enough to withstand heavy use and provide dependable traction.

The bindings aren’t the highest tech option, but they work well. The straps stayed pliable even in frigid conditions, and we were able to adjust without removing gloves.

The Evo comes in a 22-inch length and has a max weight of 180 pounds. You can add on modular 6-inch tails for increased flotation and a max weight of 250 pounds. The plastic decking can be loud on hardpack trails. And while this isn’t a deal-breaker, it can disrupt your winter wonderland enjoyment.

All things considered, these are a quality set of snowshoes that can handle a variety of conditions. If you plan to snowshoe heavily throughout winter or take on big-mile excursions, it may be worth paying more for something with a more comfortable binding or lighter weight. But for general use, these are an excellent choice.

Weight: 3 lb. 9 oz.
Length: 22″
Heel lift: No
Max weight: Up to 180 lb., 250 lb. with tails
Pros: Durability, quality traction, high-quality bindings
Cons: Need additional tails for deep powder, plastic decking is noisy

Max Comfort: TSL Symbioz Hyperflex Elite

TSL Symbioz Hyperflex Elite

Looking for a pair of snowshoes that support your natural gait? Then you need to meet the TSL Symbioz Hyperflex Elite ($280). One of the major complaints about snowshoeing is hip and knee pain from walking awkwardly. The sleek ergonomics of these snowshoes do away with that.

Eight large stainless steel crampons provide strong traction. And the heel lift allows for comfortable uphill travel. We also found the heel lift comfortably positioned underfoot and easy to engage with our trekking poles.

The binding is among our favorites and provides excellent support. We like that you can set the toepiece to your boot size and then use the cam-lock release to enter and exit. This added security and made it easier to get going each time. And you can adjust both the width and length to accommodate almost any boot.

Weight: 4 lb. 1.6 oz./4 lb. 12.8 oz.
Lengths: 20.5″/23.5″/27″
Heel lift: Yes
Max weight: 180 lb./220 lb./300 lb.
Pros: Comfort, traction
Cons: Shorter models have less flotation

Best Running Snowshoe: Atlas Race

Atlas Race Snowshoes

The Atlas Race snowshoes ($300) are designed to allow anyone to, well, race. These are a must-have for sprinting in snow. The Z-speed race binding easily stays snug against any running shoe for long distances.

The zig-zag design means you can quickly tighten it with one hand. Or you can remove the bindings completely and direct-mount running shoes for additional weight savings.

The adjustable spring-loaded suspension can be fine-tuned to find your desired level of rebound. And the titanium heel and toe crampons give plenty of grip without adding weight. They’re light, they’re fast, and they’ll make you as nimble as possible in the snow.

The only downside of the Atlas Race snowshoes is that they’re solely for racing and running. The sleeker shape means they don’t perform well in powder or for general use. But if you’re looking for a running snowshoe, the Atlas Race will have you sprinting on snow.

Weight: 2 lb. 14 oz.
Lengths: 22″
Heel lift: No
Max weight: 190 lb.
Pros: Minimalistic, lightweight, perfect for trail running
Cons: Not suited to general use

These all-foam snowshoes ($159) are unlike anything else out there. Boulder, Colorado-based Crescent Moon made quite the splash when it introduced these unusual snowshoes in 2017. The upper layer of foam is softer for better rebound and cushioning. And the lower foam is sturdier and more durable.

As one reviewer noted, “Unlike rigid aluminum or carbon snowshoes, the soft, upturned foam deck comfortably cruises over hardpacked snow and encourages agility. Below deck, hard plastic cleats bite into icy terrain, providing plenty of grip, especially on hillsides.”

They don’t do as well on technical terrain as other options. And without a heel lift, they aren’t as suitable for uphill climbs.

Weight: 3.2 lb.
Lengths: 24″
Heel lift: No
Max weight: 250 lb.
Pros: Fun, lightweight, unique design, good for everyday use
Cons: Not good off groomed trails, traction worse than other options

Atlas Helium Trail

Atlas Helium Trail

These unisex snowshoes are an excellent option for something that’s more affordable but will also deliver on the trail. The Helium Trail ($190) uses a composite deck that sheds snow efficiently without adding weight. They aren’t made for intense, steep, or icy terrain, but they excel on the trail.

They also prove light at only 3 pounds 5 ounces. And the Wrap bindings are simple and easy to use.

Weight: 3 lb. 5 oz.
Lengths: 23″/26″
Heel lift: No
Max weight: 200-250 lb. (men’s)/160-200 lb. (women’s)
Pros: Extremely lightweight, price
Cons: Not made for technical terrain, no heel lift

Flashtek Snowshoes

Flashtek

Another choice for beginners is Flashtek’s snowshoes ($120). This kit comes with a carrying bag and trekking poles, but unlike the Xplore Kit, there are no gaiters included. The Flashtek snowshoes sport an aluminum frame as well as aluminum crampons for added stability.

For such a cheap pair of snowshoes, they do perform relatively well. They don’t have great traction, and the bindings are reported to often come undone. That being said, if this is just for a beginner, especially in their youth sizes, it could be an affordable option.

Weight: Unavailable
Lengths: 21″/25″/30″
Heel lift: No
Max weight: 155 lb./220 lb./260 lb.
Pros: Price
Cons: Cheaply made, not quality materials, low traction and flotation

Buyer’s Guide: How to Choose Snowshoes

When trying to decide what snowshoes will fit your lifestyle best, there are plenty of things to keep in mind.

Sizing

For proper snowshoe sizing, you need to consider both the maximum load on your snowshoes (your body weight plus the gear you’re carrying) and the type of terrain you’ll be navigating.

Check the specs of the snowshoes. They will list a “maximum recommended load” and the recommended type of terrain. If you’re only taking day trips, the max load should be around 20 pounds above your body weight. For overnight trips or mountaineering, it would be 30-60 pounds more than your body weight to accommodate your pack.

For the length, a longer snowshoe makes it easier to travel through powder because there’s a larger surface area. However, a longer snowshoe is more challenging to take up and down steep terrain. If you expect to travel on hardpacked snow in mostly flat terrain, a shorter snowshoe will do just fine.

Bindings

When snowshoe bindings are challenging to get in and out of, or they don’t stay tightened in place, a peaceful adventure can quickly turn into a frustrating experience. Most snowshoe binding systems are a rotating or floating model, meaning they move separately from the frame of your snowshoe. Running snowshoes tend to have a single flank to reduce the shoe’s flapping and increase cushioning and quietness.

The three main strap materials are made of either nylon, rubber, or cable lace. They’re formatted in a system of either straight straps, ratchet straps, pull webbing, or a BOA system.

The pull webbing and the BOA cable lace bindings both provide a snug and secure fit, as well as a quick and easy in and out of your snowshoes. (Snowshoes themselves are also made of different materials, but the most common are made of some sort of hardened plastic with carbon, steel, or aluminum.)

Traction & Heel Risers

Under the snowshoes, you’ll see the traction, which ranges from similar to a winter hiking shoe to the sharp teeth of a crampon for mountaineering. Running snowshoes are mostly foam and rubber with a few metal studs for traction. All others will have steel crampons underfoot (toe and heel), some with the addition of side traction along the frame.

This traction is crucial for any icy conditions or inclines. I’ve managed fine with just the toe and heel crampons, but the side traction is especially vital for traversing.

Heel risers are a key feature if you plan to do any ascents up steep terrain. Trying to snowshoe uphill without heel risers will result in immediate calf fatigue. You may think that hiking sideways up an incline to create switchbacks is a solution, but trust me, this is awkward unless there’s an established flat trail of switchbacks.

Poles

Snowshoeing without poles is possible but awkward, especially when traveling through deep powder or on a steep incline. The most important feature of snowshoe poles is the basket — the circular piece about 2 inches above the spike that stabs into the ground. Many trekking poles used for hiking come with baskets, but they’re often not made for light, fluffy, thick snow.

Ski poles will have a large enough basket, but the poles you use to ski may not be the correct height for you to snowshoe. The best option is to purchase trekking poles for use while hiking or backpacking. You can also purchase the additional snow basket to swap onto the pole during the winter.

How We Tested

We kicked off the best snowshoe deep-dive with a researching frenzy. After spending several hours combing the internet and talking with brands, it was time to poll our team.

With a team dispersed across Colorado and Minnesota, we have a lot of winter-loving testers who happily added pros and cons of their favorite snowshoes.

Lastly, Gear Editor Mallory Paige gathered more than 13 models for a head-to-head comparison. Living in an off-grid cabin at the base of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, she was able to take the snowshoes out daily throughout the winter.

Some days included a fast trek up the local mountain. Whereas other days, she threw her toddler in a child carrier and headed out for a mellow hike across rolling meadows.

With all of this data, input, and intense testing, we were able to determine the best snowshoes of 2021/2022 for every use and budget.

FAQ

What Are the Best Snowshoes for Deep Snow?

The MSR Lightning Ascent with the additional 6-inch tails will provide incredible flotation in deep snow. Remember, snow is just frozen water, and we still want to stay afloat. Look for snowshoes with high flotation ratings.

Do You Need Poles?

While you may not need poles, they are highly recommended. When starting out, snowshoes can make the most agile person rather clumsy. Using poles will help increase the balance of the upper body and engage the arms in an otherwise very leg-focused sport.

On more aggressive and technical terrain, you will need poles. They can be a lifeline when you’re near precarious ledges and want the extra layer of security.

What Shoes Do You Wear With Snowshoes?

A good pair of hiking boots or winter boots are recommended for most snowshoeing situations. Look for something that will keep feet warm and dry without compromising mobility. Check out our reviews of the Best Men’s Winter Boots and Best Women’s Winter Boots for top picks.

Adding gaiters to your setup is also a good idea to keep snow out — because dry means happy.

What Size Snowshoes Do I Need?

As mentioned above, the sizing of snowshoes depends largely on your height and weight (including pack weight). Check the sizing and weight recommendations for the brand and model you’re interested in.

For the length, a longer snowshoe makes it easier to travel through powder because there’s a larger surface area. However, a longer snowshoe is more challenging to take up and down steep terrain.

    最佳总体:所罗门X Ultra 3 Mid GTX-

    The Salomon X Ultra 3 Mid GTX ($165) is a very comfortable, fairly light, waterproof boot. It fits many hikers’ feet well right out of the box. Our testing, both on and off the trail, left us looking forward to more miles in these boots.

    Thanks to its burly Contagrip outsole, this boot provides good traction. We used it on trails and even steep, muddy roads while turkey hunting where trucks had gotten stuck. They kept the tester on his feet.

    The GORE-TEX liner provides good waterproofness and reasonable breathability for cold through temperately warm weather. And at just under a pound per boot (1 pound 15.6 ounces per pair), these are quite light for a supportive, midheight hiker.

    And we’re not alone in loving this boot. Check out the 750 reviews resulting in a 4.3-star rating at REI and read our full review.

    • Weight: 1 lb. 15.6 oz. (pair)
    • Waterproofing: Yes

    Pros
    • Minimal break-in time
    • Lightweight
    • Stable and supportive
    Cons
    • Not quite supportive enough for hiking with heavy loads
    • Narrow toebox may restrict those with wider feet
    • Low-cut ankle height allows water in while hiking through puddles or shallow streams

    Runner-Up: SCARPA Rush Mid GTX Shoe — Men’s & Women’s

    Scarpa Rush Mid GTX Shoe

    With a traditional feel and a modern look, the SCARPA Rush Mid GTX ($179) has the support and protection of a midheight, waterproof hiker with astronomical levels of cushioning.

    The magic in the shoe comes from SCARPA’s traction-enhancing, shock-absorbing concave impact zones that compress and absorb energy as you walk. As soon as we weighted the shoe, the impact zones flexed so the boot’s secondary lugs could bite into the trail for increased traction.

    The Rush’s synthetic mesh upper had supportive welded overlays with a padded, softly lined collar for lightweight, dynamic ankle support. Its GORE-TEX Extended Comfort lining was dry and breathable.

    We wore the Rush Mid GTX boot for speed hikes with and without a pack and for overnight trips with a pack. It’s versatile and confidence-inspiring with a traditional feel made from lighter materials than we’ve seen in other SCARPA hikers. It runs small.

    • Weight: 1 lb. 8 oz.
    • Waterproofing: Yes
    Pros
    • Reinforced toebox adds long-term durability
    • Lightweight and nimble
    • Outsole is especially grippy on boulders and slabs
    Cons
    • Narrow toebox may not suit hikers with wide feet
    • Runs small

    Best Budget Hiking Boot: Merrell Moab 2 Mid Waterproof — Men’s & Women’s

    Merrell Moab 2 Mid Waterproof

    “These hiking boots are made for folks with high arches, and they’re so comfy the first time you put them on,” said one day hiker who took the pair up gullies, through meadows, and across many streams to treeline.

    At 32 ounces for the pair, the Moab 2 ($135) features a zonal arch and heel support, in addition to its EVA footbed, for comfort and security. The breathable mesh upper is reinforced by a suede leather overlay. And despite the mesh, the shoes proved completely waterproof through eight river crossings.

    The Moab 2 boots are simple and durable. And we also like that they’re super easy to lace up and tighten down. They’re a perennial favorite and one of the best boots you can get for less than $150.

    • Weight: 2 lb.
    • Waterproofing: Yes
    Pros:
    • Affordable
    • Waterproof
    • Comfortable
    Cons:
    • Wide fit doesn’t work for narrow feet
    • Bulky

    Best for Rough Terrain: La Sportiva Trango Tech GTX Boot — Men’s & Women’s

    La Sportiva Trango Tech GTX Boot

    Developed in collaboration with legendary climber Steve House, the La Sportiva Trango Tech GTX ($269) is a very advanced hiking boot. And, in all honesty, it’s also a pretty capable mountaineering boot.

    But we’ve put it to the test on multiday hikes spanning dozens of miles in extremely tough alpine terrain and found it to be a stellar performer, both on and off the trail.

    While the Trango Tech GTX has features suitable for mountaineering like a “climbing zone” with a sticky rubber edge on the front of the sole and “to-the-toe” lacing, it’s light enough at 21.8 ounces for long miles on the trail.

    This boot has a GORE-TEX liner to ensure waterproofness. Having slogged through running streams and mud for miles, we can attest it lives up to its waterproof claim. It uses rugged, durable fabrics for the upper, which maintains good breathability even in fairly warm weather.

    Our tests saw temps up to the 80s. And while our feet did get warm, they were never unbearably hot — impressive for such a burly boot.

    Other things we love about the boot: the gusset-free tongue, the 3D Flex system for precise support on rough terrain, and the low-profile but grippy outsole/midsole.

    Overall, this is a great boot if your hikes take you to high, remote places beyond the end of the trail. Read our full review of the La Sportiva Trango Tech GTX.

    • Weight: 2 lb. 11.7 oz.
    • Waterproofing: Yes
    Pros
    • Good on various terrain including rock, trail, and steep snow
    • Compatible with crampons
    • Lightweight for a mountaineering boot
    Cons
    • Not as durable as some mountaineering boots
    • Not quite supportive or stable enough for technical ice travel
    • Lacks a toe welt

    Hiking Boots: Best of the Rest

    KEEN Targhee III Waterproof Mid — Men’s & Women’s

    KEEN Targhee III Waterproof Mid

    The Targhee III ($150) is the most current version of a KEEN mainstay that has been in its lineup for a very long time and for a good reason — it’s a great hiking boot for a lot of people.

    It’s reasonably light at a little over 2 pounds per pair. It’s waterproof, using KEEN’s proprietary KEEN.DRY membrane. And it’s very comfortable right out of the box.

    Our first test was on a hike of about 12 miles over a rocky, sometimes muddy trail. And it performed perfectly with happy feet, great traction, and no blisters.

    The Targhee III is a direct competitor to the Salomon X Ultra 3 Mid GTX. It has a similar level of support, weight, and even appearance. But it seems to fit those with a wider foot a little better.

    They’re both excellent boots that will hold up for years of hiking. The Targhee III is particularly impressive in its lightweight performance at a very reasonable price for a good boot.

    • Weight: 2 lb. 2.8 oz.
    • Waterproofing: Yes
    Pros
    • Comfortable out of the box
    • Good value and affordable compared to similar options
    • Supportive and stable without feeling clunky
    Cons
    • Not well-suited to narrow feet
    • KEEN’s waterproofing is not as effective as other options
    • Not ideal for rugged off-trail use

    The North Face VECTIV Exploris Mid FUTURELIGHT — Men’s & Women’s

    North Face VECTIV Exploris Mid Futurelight

    If you’ve ever felt like you run out of energy midhike, this could be the shoe for you. The North Face’s VECTIV Exploris Mid FUTURELIGHT ($169) hiker literally rolls you into your next step, helping to keep you moving and conserving your energy as you stride along the trail.

    The energetic feel of this shoe comes from a rockered midsole that propels you forward with each step. It’s paired with a 3D plate between the midsole and sole that wraps up the sides of the boot for lateral stability. It also protected our feet from rocks and uneven trails.

    Although the VECTIV Exploris is rockered, we felt stable and confident in this shoe. Plenty of hiking shoes and boots have protective plates in the midsole. By extending that plate up the shoe’s sidewalls and also wrapping it around the heel, we never feared rolling our ankles.

    The VECTIV Exploris’s Y-shaped lugs had zonal traction. Harder lugs on the perimeter of the forefoot gave this boot extra bite when conditions were soft or rocky.

    The heel had aggressive braking lugs that helped us control the descent. The sole is anatomically scored, which made rolling through each footstep fluid.

    The VECTIV Exploris’s meshy upper is lined with The North Face’s FUTURELIGHT waterproof/breathable fabric, which kept feet dry and comfortable even on warm days.

    The boot’s lacing doesn’t look like anything special. But the lace guides lock in the laces every time they cross the tongue of the boot, making the lacing zonal.

    • Weight: 1 lb. 11.3 oz.
    • Waterproofing: Yes
    Pros:
    • Stable
    • Tunable lacing
    • Conserves energy
    Cons:
    • Rockered profile takes some wear to get used to

    Altra Lone Peak All-Weather Mid — Men’s & Women’s

    Altra Lone Peak All-Weather Mid

    At 12 ounces, the Lone Peak All-Weather Mid ($170) is one of the lightest hiking boots you can buy. It’s nimble and fast, more like a running shoe with midheight ankle support.

    Altra’s signature ultrawide toebox leaves feet plenty of space to spread out. That helped us hike longer miles without foot pain.

    When we wore this hiker in cooler temps, it also helped our toes stay warm because they weren’t restricted and there was space for warm air inside the shoe.

    The Lone Peak All-Weather Mid uses an eVent bootie to keep feet dry. The membrane truly breathes, making this one of the least sweaty water-resistant shoes we’ve worn. That said, it’s not fully waterproof, but more accurately water-resistant.

    The Lone Peak All-Weather Mid has a springy insole that gives the boots a running shoe feel and will put some spring in your step. And the sole’s directional V-shaped lugs were grippy on rocks and roots but didn’t get packed with mud.

    The sole extends slightly longer than the body of the boot in the back, which made rolling through each step feel natural and smooth. A gusseted tongue kept water out when we misjudged the depth of a puddle. It also kept out fir needles, leafy debris, sand, shale, and everything else that tried to creep in on various hikes.

    The 25mm stack height felt lower in the heel than others we tested, which was super comfortable over many days and miles of wearing them.

    • Weight: 1 lb. 14 oz.
    • Waterproofing: No, but they are water-resistant
    Pros:
    • Light
    • Fast
    • Supportive
    • Sheds mud
    Cons:
    • Not as much rock protection as some shoes

    HOKA ONE ONE Speedgoat 2 Mid GORE-TEX — Men’s & Women’s

    HOKA ONE ONE Speedgoat 2 Mid GORE-TEX

    Half trail runner, half boot, HOKA’s Speedgoat 2 Mid ($170) is one of our favorite fast hikers. HOKA took the design of its popular grippy trail runner — the Speedgoat — and upgraded it with more cushion, more ankle support, and a waterproof GORE-TEX membrane to protect you on the trail.

    At 11.3 ounces per pair, these hiking boots are a great choice for backpacking and other fast hiking endeavors. And while it’s definitely on pace to function as a trail runner (with a little extra protection), it functions great as a hiker too.

    In terms of a hiking boot, the Speedgoat 2 Mid has everything you could want: ankle support, cushion, good traction, and a lighter-weight, flexible design that moves with your feet as you go. A GORE-TEX membrane bootie wraps the shoe, keeping you protected from water, mud, and any other wet-weather terrain.

    Our testers loved the fit and noticed the boot wasn’t too stiff upon breaking in. It’s also perfect for varied, multisurface terrain and trails that involve more technical elements, like hiking through boulder fields, scrambling, or making small stream crossings. The HOKA Speedgoat Mid can handle most everything.

    If you’re looking for a less traditional “boot” and more of a shoe that will work for trail running, hiking, and anything in between, the HOKA Speedgoat 2 Mid is a great option.

    • Weight: 1 lb. 10.5 oz.
    • Waterproofing: Yes
    Pros:
    • Lightweight
    • Waterproof
    • Great traction and grip (5mm lugs)
    • Versatile
    Cons:
    • Not the most breathable
    • Some found issues with sizing

    SCARPA Maverick Mid GTX — Men’s & Women’s

    SCARPA Maverick Mid GTX

    Lighter and more breathable than its cousin, the Zodiac Plus GTX, SCARPA’s new Maverick GTX ($169) offers up a more agile, athletic hiking boot. Synthetic leather and polyester combine with a GORE-TEX layer to provide waterproofing. It’s amply breathable though not remarkably so — on hot hikes, you’ll still have some lightly damp socks.

    But SCARPA swung for immediate flexibility and comfort, and it definitely reduced the break-in period of its traditionally rugged but reluctant hikers. This was not the most stable boot we tested, though it kept feet acceptably secure.

    And while the lug pattern isn’t the most aggressive SCARPA offers, it has a fast profile with enough bite to keep pushing. Plus, at $169, it’s a value compared to SCARPA’s other offerings.

    • Weight: 1 lb. 0.2 oz.
    • Waterproofing: Yes
    Pros:
    • Light
    • Breathable
    • Agile
    Cons:
    • Less stable than some options
    • Less aggressive lug pattern

    Vasque Breeze AT Mid GTX — Men’s & Women’s

    Vasque Breeze AT Mid GTX

    For stability and ultimate protection against jagged rocks, sharp sticks, and deceptively deep puddles, the Vasque Breeze AT Mid GTX ($190) is one heck of a go-to. We’ll be honest, after several weeks of testing, we’re still breaking them into that sweet spot, but these boots are great for more gnarly hikes.

    These are not lightweight boots. At 1 pound 5.5 ounces per boot — with the protective PU shank — you really feel the boot as you step.

    But Vasque mitigates overheating with mesh hits dotting the Nubuck leather upper. Still, with the GORE-TEX liner adding a layer of waterproofing, the Breeze AT Mid GTX boots do retain heat more than the others we tested.

    But if protection is first on your list when shopping for hiking boots, these merit consideration.

    • Weight: 2 lb. 11 oz.
    • Waterproofing: Yes
    Pros
    • Very supportive for a hiking boot
    • Reliable Vibram outsole holds traction on various surfaces
    • Comfortable for various foot shapes
    Cons
    • Waterproof liner limits airflow and feels sweaty in warm conditions
    • Burly and heavy, not suited to fast and light hiking
    • Lacing system tends to lose tension

    Crispi Nevada GTX Hunting Boot

    Crispi Nevada GTX Hunting Boot

     

    Available in either an uninsulated or insulated (200g) model for $20 more, the Crispi Nevada GTX ($419) is a longstanding favorite in the hunting community.

    The ankle bone support structure (ABSS) is touted as top-notch by hunters with ankles prone to rolling. And reviewers say this boot is “out-of-the-box comfortable” on repeat.

    The Nevada series does have some flex, making it a great all-around boot for hiking, backpacking, and hitting the trail with a load of meat in your pack. The Nevada GTX can be resoled, meaning once it’s yours, it’s yours for a long dang time.

    And for the price of two midlevel hunting boots, you’ll save cash in the long run with this investment. Read our contributor’s full review of the Crispi Nevada GTX.

    • Weight: 3.9 lb.
    • Waterproofing: Yes
    Pros
    • Exceptionally sturdy and stable
    • Easy to break in compared to other heavy-duty boots
    • Long-lasting durability
    Cons
    • Expensive
    • Insulation can sometimes feel inadequate in cold conditions
    • Requires care and maintenance to preserve leather upper

    KEEN Tempo Flex Mid — Men’s & Women’s

    KEEN Tempo Flex Mid

    Made for light hiking, KEEN’s Tempo Flex ($160) makes walking easier with loads of heel cushioning, a soft collar, and ridged bellows at the forefoot flex zone. Because of its low-key look and all-day comfort, this is a boot we often grab for running errands or walking the dog.

    The new technology in the Tempo Flex is a soft, ridged plastic zone between the bottom of the lacing and the toe of the boot. Called Bellows Flex, KEEN says it takes 60% less energy to bend than other boots. This also cuts down on break-in and prevents the boot from cracking.

    The flex zone was comfortable and didn’t press down on our toes. It did feel more flexy walking than other boots. However, we quickly got used to it and forgot about it, which is the highest form of compliment in shoe comfort. A paper-thin TPU rand around the toe, sides, and lacing of this boot reduced wear and tear.

    Directional grip in the sticky soles, ridged toe and heel gripping, and braking zones helped us stay in control while negotiating a technical stretch of Vermont’s Long Trail. Mini lugs in the arch gripped a slippery log.

    And on a steep descent off Mt. Mansfield, the heel brakes gave excellent grip when the trail descended steeply. A stability shank inside also prevented pokey rocks from bruising our feet.

    The Tempo Flex has a beefy and squishy midsole that’s thickest under the boot’s heel. This took the bite out of hardpacked trails, but it didn’t stride quite as naturally as some other boots.

    With the Tempo Flex, KEEN modernizes their look with a less blocky toebox that still left plenty of room to let our foot spread. They also treated this partially recycled boot with an eco-friendly anti-stink treatment to keep them from offending your tentmates.

    Does the Tempo Flex solve a pressing problem? I haven’t had a boot crack in the toe in years, and I’m not sure more flex in the forefoot helped me hike further or faster. But this is still a great boot for light-duty missions.

    • Weight: Unknown
    • Waterproofing: Yes
    Pros
    • Highly breathable for waterproof boots
    • Lightweight and comfortable
    • Unique combination of flex and stability
    Cons
    • Cumbersome heel
    • Not ideal for heavy-duty missions

    La Sportiva Nucleo High 2 GTX Hiking Boots — Men’s & Women’s

    La Sportiva Nucleo High 2 GTX

    A more traditional backpacking boot, the high-cut Nucleo High 2 GTX ($199) is big news for La Sportiva because it’s the first hiking boot they’ve made for wider feet. The leather boot was protective in the way that only a leather boot can be. It is also waterproof, thanks to a GORE-TEX liner.

    The breathability of the Nucleo High II GTX is enhanced by microvents under mesh from the arch of the foot to the ankle along the line of the sole — GORE’s Surround system. A Vibram rubber rand and toecap deflected scuffs and rocks.

    The Vibram sole had steady grip climbing, braking traction on descents, and a slightly rockered shape that made it easier to heel into a step and toe out of it.

    Well-padded fabric at the Achilles gave us plenty of pressure-free range-of-ankle movement on steep descents. On rocky trails, a polypropylene stiffener in the midsole protected my feet from bruising.

    If you truly have wide feet, the Nucleo High II GTX will likely be too narrow. While this one is wide for La Sportiva — and it welcomes more hikers than ever to wear the company’s classic European hiking boots — they’re more of a wide medium cut.

    If you’re lamenting the change of last because you have narrow feet and have always loved how La Sportiva fits, don’t stress. They still offer the Nucleo High in a “normal fit” too.

    Teva Grandview GORE-TEX — Men’s & Women’s

    Teva Grandview GORE-TEX

    Looking for a hiking boot that easily transitions from mountaintop to coffee shop? Then it’s time you met the Teva Grandview GORE-TEX ($175). This pick offers modern retro styling in a boot that performs impressively well on the trail.

    These boots proved comfortable from the very first wear. The wider toebox gave us plenty of room for toes to wiggle and splay out naturally. One narrow-footed tester found them too roomy, so keep in mind your particular foot shape.

    We had adequate traction even on wet rocks during a stream crossing. And the GORE-TEX liner kept our feet dry through it all. Even on warmer spring hikes, we didn’t have a problem with our feet overheating.

    The Heel Lock strap provided subtle yet helpful foot support. Teva claims it helps lock your foot in place and decreases toe pressure on descents. We were pleasantly surprised to find it truly did help.

    The Grandview GORE-TEX may not have enough support or traction for technical rocky terrain or extended backpacking trips, but for day hikes and around-town jaunts, it’s our new favorite hiker.

    • Weight: 1 lb. 11 oz.
    • Waterproofing: Yes
    Pros
    • Stylish
    • Out-of-box comfort
    • Roomy toebox
    Cons
    • High arches may not fit all foot shapes
    • Not ideal for narrow feet

    Asolo TPS 520 GV EVO — Men’s & Women’s

    Asolo TPS 520 GV EVO

    The Asolo TPS 520 GV EVO ($340) boots have lasted our tester for nearly 10 years. She’s taken them on numerous backpacking trips throughout the West, including the Tetons, Wind Rivers, Glacier, and Sawtooths. They’ve proved comfortable, durable, and supportive throughout.

    They are a stiffer boot and require a break-in period. But once broken in, the Asolo TPS 520 feels like an extension of your body.

    The deeply channeled outsoles provide excellent traction and reduce the buildup of debris. And the padded ankle collar is comfortable and useful at keeping rocks out.

    We’ve read some complaints of the sole coming off but have never experienced this ourselves. And in doing some research, it seems that most complaints of sole failure are from boots that are 10-plus years old. It’s worth noting these boots can be resoled, which generally costs around $100.

    • Weight: 1 lb. 10 oz. (per shoe)
    • Waterproofing: Yes
    Pros
    • Super durable
    • Laces rarely need to be replaced
    Cons
    • Slow break-in process
    • Some users report delamination of the outsole

    Salomon Outback 500 GTX — Men’s & Women’s

    Salomon Outback 500 GTX

    The Salomon Outback 500 GTX ($210) excels at being featherlight yet durable. The pair weighs only 28.2 ounces due to a unique CORDURA textile upper. Although midheight, the cuff’s sculpted collars rise a tad higher above the ankle compared to other boots in that category, our testers found.

    “The mix between the deep lugs, thick outsole, and toe protection really contrasts with the feeling of a malleable textile upper. But once I hiked in them and they took river crossings, mud, and rocks like a champ, I realized these Salomon boots are really protective and durable for long days on trail and a heavy pack,” said our tester.

    The midsole features EnergyCell foam, but overall, the shoes feel stiffer and more supportive than other pairs tested. 

    • Weight: 14.1 oz. (per shoe)
    • Waterproofing: Yes
    Pros
    • Supportive
    • Light and nimble
    Cons
    • Slow to break in
    • Not the most sensitive for technical hiking and scrambling

    Buyer’s Guide: How to Choose a Pair of Hiking Boots

    Choosing hiking footwear is an ever-complicated and personal endeavor. Boots built for durability and stability tend to be less forgiving than most footwear, and they require a more precise fit. Here are a few things that can help you find the best boot for your foot.

    Hiking Boot Components: Uppers, Midsoles, and Outsoles

    Upper

    A hiking boot’s upper is the outer material on the top and sides of the boot. There are a handful of materials commonly used in hiking boot uppers, but generally, uppers are either leather or synthetic. Leather uppers are more traditional-looking, and they tend to be highly durable and abrasion-resistant.

    Synthetic uppers tend to be lighter than leather. They also dry faster and usually cost less. Typically, synthetic uppers are not as durable as leather.

    Midsoles

    A midsole provides underfoot cushioning and adds structural stability to the entire boot. Stiff boots likely come with a thick and stiff midsole.

    Soft and flexible hiking shoes are built with thinner, more pliable midsoles. Stiff boots can prevent your feet from becoming tired and sore, but flexible boots may be more comfortable and nimble for fast and light hiking.

    Midsoles are generally made from EVA or polyurethane. EVA is lightweight and soft, while polyurethane is firmer and more durable. If you plan to hike long distances with a heavy pack, you’ll want a boot with a stiff midsole.

    Outsoles

    The outsoles of hiking boots are made of rubber. Harder outsoles on stiff boots sometimes include additives such as carbon. While extra-stiff outsoles are durable and good for carrying heavy loads, they can feel slick when hiking off-trail.

    All outsoles include a lug pattern designed to increase traction and grip. Widely spaced lugs are less likely to accumulate mud, while shallow lugs are better for hiking over rocky surfaces.

    Some outsoles include a heel brake, which can reduce your chances of slides while descending down steep slopes.

    Weight

    A pair of hiking boots can weigh anywhere between 1.5 pounds to well over 4 pounds. The weight of your boots will depend on their structure and materials. Generally, more robust boots with leather uppers and stiff soles will be heavier.

    Synthetic boots with flexible soles will be lighter and perform more like running shoes. Carrying heavy boots on your feet on long hikes can cause fatigue, but heavy boots also tend to offer more support.

    Support & Stability

    If you’re hiking with a heavy load, you’ll want some stable and supportive hiking boots. A stiff outsole and midsole add support underfoot, and a nice firm ankle collar supports the ankle joint.

    Traction

    Different lug patterns are designed for different kinds of terrain. Although some boot companies make their own outsoles, Vibram soles are still the standard for high-quality outsoles and maximum traction.

    Some boots include a smooth section of rubber under the toes for smearing on slabs of rock. Other boots have deep lugs for soft or muddy trails. Most lug patterns work for a variety of terrain, but if you will be hiking in extreme conditions, look for something more aggressive with larger or pointier lugs.

    On steep and loose terrain, a heel brake is a handy feature. This is the defined spot on the heel that helps prevent slippage when walking downhill. The HOKA TenNine running shoe takes a heel brake to the next level, but most hiking boots are much more subtle.

    Waterproofing

    If you’ll be wearing your boots when it’s rainy, snowy, or cold, get a waterproof and breathable boot. It will keep moisture out, which will keep your feet comfortable regardless of how many miles you’re ticking off.

    If you’re hiking primarily or exclusively in hot, dry conditions, don’t get a waterproof boot. A membrane-free boot will keep your feet cool and dry.

    Insoles

    Not all hiking boot insoles will be a good fit for every foot. Depending on the shape of your foot, you may need to purchase insoles separately. If you have a high arch, look for insoles that cater to this trait specifically.

    Crampon Compatibility

    If you plan to do some major winter hiking or mountaineering, you’ll need boots that work well with crampons. These traction devices are critical for extreme conditions.

    Durability

    Good hiking boots will hold up to the standard wear and tear of hiking. Still, some boots are harder than others, and the lifespan of your boots will also depend on the frequency of use and your preferred terrain type.

    Generally, hiking boots with leather uppers and stiffer soles will be more durable than synthetic boots with soft and flexible soles.

    Price

    On this list, we’ve included hiking boots that vary in price from just over $100 to well over $400. Hiking boots are an investment, and if you are willing to pay for a quality pair, they should last a long time.

    There is no one price that works best for everyone. It helps to consider your use and personal preference.

    If you’re just dipping your toe into hiking, it makes sense to go with a boot on the cheaper end of the spectrum. Our budget pick is still very comfortable and will serve most hikers well.

    Another important thing to think about is your foot shape and support level needed. Perhaps you need a more structured boot or will find the most comfort by adding an aftermarket insole. Though this can be a more expensive option, it may serve you better in the long run.

    Hiking boots with name-brand features like Vibram soles and GORE-TEX linings tend to be more expensive. Also, leather boots are commonly more expensive than synthetic ones.

    At the end of the day, you want to spend the necessary amount to find comfort and happiness on the trail.

    FAQ

    The most comfortable hiking boots are ones that feel good when you put them on before your hike — and that still feel good when you take them off at the end of your hike.

    A very soft boot might feel great to slide into at home, but it might not have enough support or protection to leave you feeling great after a long day on the trail.

    What Are the Best Lightweight Hiking Boots?

    The best lightweight hiking boots are the ones that fit your foot. Check out Altra’s Lone Peak All-Weather Mid. We loved them for their feather weight, superb support, and their roomy toebox. If you don’t need a waterproof boot, choose one without a membrane.

    Hiking Boots vs. Hiking Shoes: Which Do I Need?

    Whether you hike in shoes or boots is a personal preference. Hiking boots give more ankle support, so if you’re carrying a heavy load backpacking, they’re a great choice. But many thru-hikers wear hiking shoes for big adventures, like the Appalachian Trail.

    Structure underfoot matters as much as how high the boot is. Choose a boot or shoe that feels good to wear and gives you confidence when you’re hiking.

    Should I Get Waterproof Hiking Boots?

    If you plan to regularly hike in wet and cold environments, it may be wise to get waterproof hiking boots. You may not plan on getting wet, but it’s always a possibility in the outdoors. Waterproof boots make sure you’re prepared for anything. Depending on the weather and season, you may want a pair of winter hiking boots.

    That said, waterproof boots tend to be hotter and less breathable. So, if you plan to hike in warm and dry conditions such as the desert, waterproof boots are not the best choice.

    Despite the pickup bed, the Santa Cruz is shorter than a Hyundai Palisade

    Certainly, the 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz is smaller than most modern trucks. It’s a vehicle that, depending on the trim, includes a tow-hitch, a tailgate, and a bed filled with tie-down straps. And yet it fits in a typical city parallel parking spot.

    In today’s world, that’s novel. And welcome. But is it a truck? Hyundai says no. The company prefers the term “Sport Adventure Vehicle.”

    Submitted as supporting evidence, consider the following: Hyundai used the N3 platform to build the Santa Cruz. That’s the same structure as the Hyundai Tucson, Santa Fe, Sonata, and several Kia models. Indeed, forward of the bed, it looks very much like the Tucson, inside and out. And it’s certainly not the traditional body-on-frame structure most manufacturers use as the bones of their trucks.

    Yet, check out these specs. Depending on trim, the Santa Cruz can tow up to 5,000 pounds. Its maximum payload is as much as 1,753 pounds. And, with a couple of minor adjustments and tie-down straps to help, you can lay 4 x 8-foot sheets of plywood flat in the bed.

    None of the above will convince diesel-powered, one-ton owners to trade in, but it might raise a few eyebrows for folks on the recreational side of things.

    IMG_7950-scaled
    You can adjust the tailgate to line up with the top of the wheel wells to haul 4 x 8-foot sheets of plywood

    Then why does Hyundai call it a “Sport Adventure Vehicle” and not a “truck”?

    Because it’s not a truck — at least not a typical one. Despite the figures and the shape, the intended purpose of the Santa Cruz is noticeably different than we’re used to.

    Think of it like a Tucson with a separated cargo area, a mudroom of sorts. Hyundai used sheet-molded compound plastic to make the bed. Though not as strong as aluminum or steel, this material is well-suited for a pile of wet and dirty items, like beach towels or mountain bikes.

    IMG_7949-scaled
    The strap in the bed is attached to the lockable tonneau cover

    You can open the tailgate with the push of a button on the key fob, which will happen slowly and softly as a gas strut helps smooth out the operation. And mounted on top is a lockable roller tonneau cover to both hide and secure your gear.

    IMG_7952-scaled
    The under-bed storage area on the 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz

    Furthermore, just in front of the tailgate is an under-bed storage area, similar to what Honda offers on the Ridgeline. And, just like the Honda, the Santa Cruz under-bed storage area comes with a drain plug, making it easy to clean. Or, instead, fill it with ice for a built-in cooler while you tailgate or camp.

    Behind the wheels on either side of the bed are small glovebox-like storage bins, and the one on the passenger side includes an A/C plug. There are also lights and sliding tie-downs to help hold everything in place.

    Peppy and Polished

    IMG_7959-scaled
    Inside, the 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz is reminiscent of the Tucson

    To power this amalgamation of vehicle types, Hyundai offers two 2.5L four-cylinder engines, one naturally aspirated, the other turbocharged. SE and SEL trimmed models get the former and make do with 191 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque that ties to an eight-speed automatic transmission and sends power on to either the front or all four wheels.

    SEL Premium and my Limited test car get the turbo and enjoy 281 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque as a result. With the added power, you get an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission instead of an automatic but can still choose to send the power to the front or both axles. And both engines return remarkably similar fuel economy — 21 mpg city, 26-27 mpg highway, 23 mpg combined — except the heavier Limited model, which slurps down 19 city, 27 highway, and 22 combined.

    From behind the wheel, you feel plenty of pep. The Limited all-wheel-drive Santa Cruz tips the scales at 4,123 pounds. according to Hyundai, meaning each horsepower lugs around 14.7 pounds. That’s in the ballpark of a Volkswagen GTI. And thanks to the all-wheel drive and an eight-speed, dual-clutch box, you have plenty of traction and little downtime between gears.

    Moreover, it rides down the road and handles corners just like a Tucson. Because, well, it basically is one.

    Clearly, this isn’t your default canyon carver. At the same time, the Santa Cruz is fully competent. A well-balanced spring and shock setup allowed for a pleasant enough ride down a lumpy road as well as less roll when I chucked it into a corner than any truck I’ve recently driven. And that remains true with a load in the back or a trailer behind, as the Santa Cruz includes a load-leveling rear suspension.

    IMG_7955-scaled
    Those seat bottoms lift up to reveal additional storage underneath; the upright seat back position is not adjustable

    Inside, you basically have a Tucson doppelganger, which is a compliment. The Limited model includes two 10.25-inch screens: one for the instrument cluster, the other for the center console. You also get heated and ventilated seats, a heated steering wheel, and other similar luxuries and space.

    At least for the front seats. The realities of a bed behind the second row pinches legroom a bit, and folks back there are not church-pew upright, but close. Truthfully, the second row is better suited for children or shorter trips. On the other hand, if you don’t need to cart around passengers, you can also fold the seat bottoms up to reveal additional storage bin space.

    2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz: Ditching Truck Tradition for the Better

    This is not a truck, at least not in the traditional North American sense. But it’s a vehicle that dips its toes into many different categories.

    It has a midsize sedan footprint. It drives like a car-based compact SUV and, in doing so, provides similar levels of space, comfort, and fuel economy. Yet it will still raise its hand to help with a lot of residential-level pickup truck tasks.

    And frankly, it’s nice to finally see something smaller enter the market for a change. Bigger isn’t always more. Check out all the specs on the 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz here.

    巴塔哥尼亚首席执行官瑞安·盖勒特(Ryan Gellert)在一封信中正式向参议员乔·曼钦(D-WV)和参议员吉尔斯滕·西尼马(D-AZ)递交了这一承诺。两位参议员对国会面前的3.5万亿美元预算法案表示怀疑。

    该法案缺乏共和党人的支持,包括对美国进行雄心勃勃的改革;中国的能源部门,旨在减少该国的能源需求’;巴塔哥尼亚没有立即对Gear Junkie作出反应;巴塔哥尼亚自愿缴纳更高的税款

    在考虑如何最好地为美国的子孙后代建立成功基础时,健全的财政政策无疑是一个关键问题。但正如环保主义者大卫·布劳尔所说,“在一个死星球上没有生意可做。”不采取行动的成本将远远高于现在投资于基于科学的气候政策的成本。

    巴塔哥尼亚愿意支付更高的公司税率,以产生新的收入,为和解方案提供资金。另一个可行的资金来源是取消对石油和天然气公司的税收补贴。如你所知,美国对化石燃料行业的直接补贴每年约为200亿美元,考虑到其他健康、环境和气候外部性,美国人每年的成本超过6490亿美元。削减这些补贴不仅可以推动减排,还可以节省大量纳税人的钱,这些钱可以重新用于资助[西弗吉尼亚州,亚利桑那州]工人的公正过渡除此之外。

    除了对气候采取行动外,我还要求你们优先考虑工人的带薪休假。在巴塔哥尼亚,我们亲眼目睹了为员工提供现场托儿服务和带薪休假对于维持一支强大、敬业的员工队伍是多么重要。然而,在全国范围内,只有不到21%的工人可以通过雇主享受带薪家庭假。吸引和留住顶尖人才和优秀人才 经济迅速复苏 依靠解决带薪休假和儿童保育等紧迫问题,让人们重返劳动力大军。

    弗雷德·格雷戈里是第一位指挥太空飞行的黑人美国人。现在,你可以穿一件得到他认可的连帽衫。

    帖子NASA x OROS C41气凝胶连帽衫向首位美国黑人太空飞行员致敬GearJunkie

    弗雷德·格雷戈里是一个活生生的传奇人物。作为第一位指挥太空飞行的黑人美国人,他还在越南战争中执行了550次战斗救援任务。现在,你可以穿一件得到他认可的连帽衫。

    坦率地说,OROS制作精美服装6月份,它取笑了一款新的&8220;神秘材料”;据说这将标志着一场服装革命。

    符合C41飞行夹克的要求。使用品牌’;s SOLARCORE气凝胶织物(最初是美国宇航局的技术),C41 isn’;不只是暖和,它&&8217;它也是防水的。OROS还设计了隔热图案,采用人体定位,以优化透气性和保护性。

    弗雷德·格雷戈里(Fred Gregory)曾三次驾驶航天器进入轨道,飞行时间超过7000小时。OROS委托格雷戈里就C41和8217进行咨询;这是我的设计。他还会在每件限量版夹克上亲笔签署一份单独编号的真品证书。

    这有多酷?这里我们来看看未来的哑弹。

    OROS SOLARCORE:Spaceship隔热材料

    The key insulator in OROS’s C41 fabric actually insulates spaceships. NASA first developed aerogel to protect astronauts inside spacecraft, where the outside temperature plummets to -450 degrees F.

    OROS took aerogel and tweaked it, combining it with flexible foam designed to be warm but not bulky, landing on a proprietary tech it calls SOLARCORE. We’ve seen this in puffier jackets, but the iteration in a soft hoodie appears to be new.

    C41 uses the technology to create what OROS calls “the most scientifically innovative outerwear in the galaxy (as far as we know).”

    The veracity of that claim notwithstanding, the non-bulking factor is very real: OROS claims 2 mm of SOLARCORE insulates as well as a typical down or synthetic puffy. As applied to the C41 Flight Jacket, it’s designed to hug you in the right places with body mapping and move with you with a four-way stretch.

    Other Far-Out Features of the C41 Aerogel Hoodie

    In a lot of ways, the C41 Flight Jacket is a hoodie. But the differentiation lies in the details.

    Two asymmetrical zippers surround the aerogel-insulated kangaroo pocket. Each zipper is two-way, giving you the ability to ventilate your trunk, your neck, or all of it. The zippers are water-resistant, handled by YKK. Inside the waist area, an adjustable strap facilitates a snug fit around the hips.

    The constructed hood features a panel in the front to help fight back the wind — or the vacuum of space. Once you’re zipped up in the C41 aerogel hoodie, you’re protected by a blend of 93% nylon and 7% elastane with a (non-specified) PFC-free DWR treatment. And because no hoodie worthy of interstellar missions leaves you without thumb-loop cuffs, OROS builds in extendable ones.

    Fred Gregory Flight Jacket Launch Details

    The NASA x OROS C41 Flight Jacket launches on Oct. 15. Each jacket comes with the aforementioned certificate, signed by Gregory, and 10% of the purchase price goes to the Astronaut Scholarship Fund.

    What does a jacket built with spaceship materials, endorsed by America’s first Black space pilot, cost? Not all that much, considering — MSRP $350 lands the rig.

    The post Hunt in Comfort: Thermacell MR450装甲便携式驱蚊器评论首先出现在GearJunkie.

    蚊子可以也将扼杀你的狩猎动机。但是Thermacell可以帮你打败它们。

    打骷髅玩得开心。这是我的父亲,一个老猎鹿人,在我开始今年第一次早期猎杀白尾鹿的前几天晚上告诉我的。堪萨斯州的九月下旬,夏末雨水充沛,成吉思汗的金色部落一样,成吉思汗州的东部地区出现了大量蚊子;注:该评论最初发表于2018年。它已经更新了活动链接和当前图像。


    我不知道老前辈是如何对付蚊子的。我认为可以公平地说,许多鹿在9月份幸存下来,因为猎人们不愿意忍受这场袭击。

    对于我们这些迫不及待地等待第一次冰冻的人来说,有希望:

    Photo/Thermacell

    Stopping the Swat

    The Thermacell system has three components: a fuel cartridge, a repellent mat, and the device that uses heat to activate the powerful repellent.

    A button on the housing sparks an igniter, which burns the butane and heats the pad. It takes a few minutes for the repellent to heat up and work its magic.

    Once it’s rolling, the mosquito-repelling effect is noticeable.

    I use a Thermacell model with an integrated clip that makes hanging it upwind and below me an easy task. I place the Thermacell below me because the pad emits a thin, wispy vapor that rises.

    Once started, it makes a very slight hissing noise, but nothing too noticeable.

    Thermacell for Turkey Season

    On a late-season turkey hunt last year, I set up near a creek bed with standing water in an area out of the wind. It took about 5 minutes for the Thermacell to work its magic.

    In the meantime, I may have lost around a quart of blood to the especially large mosquitoes calling that creek their home. Once warmed up, the Thermacell kept them at bay. I could see a wall of mosquitoes buzzing around about 5 to 10 feet in front of me.

    I still took a few bites for the team, but it was nothing like it would’ve been otherwise.

    thermacell mr450 on rocks
    Photo/Thermacell

    Do Deer Smell It?

    The Thermacell doesn’t have a strong smell — but it does have a slight scent. On days with a light but steady breeze, the vapor can be carried upward and downwind. Thermacell offers an Earth Scent Refill that the brand says is a “dirt scent used to mask human odor,” which could help in the situation.

    Chances are that if the deer can pick up on the Thermacell scent, they can probably smell you as well, so I don’t worry too much about this issue. I also keep my early-season hunting clothes segregated from my later-season clothes until they have been washed so as not to cross-contaminate any odors (body, Thermacell, or otherwise).

    Another downside is the heat that can build up after long periods of continuous use. It’s not hot, per se, but the platform the pad sits on does get fairly warm.

    I usually just switch the MR450 off 10 minutes or so before my exit and let it cool down before it gets stuffed in the pack.

    Not for Everyone, But Definitely for Me

    I know some deer hunters, especially those of the archery persuasion, that couldn’t imagine bringing something to the tree that might add scent to their setup.

    Personally, I put more emphasis on the wind direction and stand location, and I worry less about smelling like nothing.

    I prefer to look at it another way: If it gets you out hunting more often, why not try it? It might not be an option for every deer hunter, but you’ll find one in my pack until the first freeze.

    专业推出下一代涡轮电动自行车系列,包括Vado、Como和Tero车型。

    &p>&8220;这些全新的全功率涡轮电动自行车是专业自行车中最平稳、最安静、最强劲、最安全的一款,非常适合日常通勤、锻炼和冒险;该品牌在新闻稿中表示。

    专业涡轮电动自行车

    该公司在设计下一代车型时考虑了三种类型的车手。

    https://www.specialized.com/us/en/turbo-como“target=“\u blank”rel=“noopener”>Como是它的休闲,为自行车和电子自行车新手或日常跑步者打造的城市自行车。

    Specialized Turbo Como

    Specialized couches the Vado as “the vehicle for everything from daily commutes to fast workouts to longer-than-planned adventures … designed to boldly take on the ever-changing landscape you’ll encounter as a daily rider, carry whatever you need it to, and keep you riding more often.”

    specialized-turbo-vado e-bike
    Specialized Turbo Vado

    Finally, the Tero is the brand’s all-terrain eMTB. “Tero’s strengths are the fusion of power, confidence, and versatility.

    “Developed in concert together toward a single end goal, these attributes result in a strong, efficient, adaptable bike that is a joy to ride everywhere from city streets to backcountry trails,” Specialized said.

    specialized turbo tero e-mtb
    Specialized Turbo Tero

    Turbo Power and Design

    All three bike trims are available in standard (full power with 90-mile range) and SL (lighter, with a 62- to 80-mile range) and come complete with a 2.2 motor (90 Nm of torque) and a 710Wh battery for smooth, quiet operation regardless of speed.

    Riders should expect top speeds between 20 mph (typical in class 1 offroaders like the Tero) and 28 mph (usual in class 3 commuters like the Como and Vado). More range will result from lower ride assist settings. Specialized claims that the Turbo e-bikes produce up to four times more power than the human output on the highest rider-assist setting.

    It also states that the acceleration feels natural thanks to intelligent suspension damping. A custom testing mechanism analyzes bumps to increase comfort and vision.

    The brand pairs that precision with an E5 aluminum frame, an integrated downtube battery, internal cable routing, locking dropout, a suspended seat post, higher-volume tires, and an 80mm suspension fork.

    It adds DRYTECH fenders, a LED front and rear light set, a front rack mount with lock, and a 60-pound-capacity rear rack compatible with child bike seats. And the e-bikes are rated to pull a thru-axle trailer.

    Ride Intelligence and Smart Controls

    Where Specialized’s next-gen e-bikes stand out may very well be in their programming. The MasterMind onboard computer and Mission Control Bluetooth feature comprise the bike’s neural command center.

    MasterMind Computer and Mission Control App

    MasterMind dually integrates with the bike’s local systems and the Mission Control smartphone app. The MasterMind operating system is the conduit for cloud-based software updates, range-optimization tools, ride history, essential hardware and diagnostic stats, advanced tuning intel, and antitheft control. Users can even adjust the degree of ride assistance, all through a handlebar-mounted display and the app.

    The app’s OTA software updates deliver improvements and new features on a rolling basis. “As we learn and continue to develop from a software standpoint, the bike gets better over time,” said brand leader Ian Kenny.

    specialized mastermind e-bike display
    MasterMind display

    Antitheft  Turbo System Lock

    A Turbo System Lock and the Mission Control app make up the Turbo line’s antitheft feature set. The on-bike System Lock technology ties the bike’s tangible aspects to its intangible capabilities.

    By tapping into System Lock via the Mission Control app, riders can place their bikes in a virtual Faraday cage, and they can do so from just about anywhere. The e-bike owner’s Mission Control account allows them to remote disable and re-enable the bike motor and computer, plus activate and deactivate the motion-detecting alarm.

    Garmin Rear-Facing Radar

    Garmin’s rad new rear-facing radar detection holds down the security fort and integrates with the handlebar display. Garmin indicated that the detector, which is primarily designed for automotive traffic but can detect other moving objects, picks up on moving objects from a distance up to 460 feet (140 m).

    And, of course, what would Garmin be without a readout? The Radar routes visual, audio, and haptic notifications to the MasterMind computer. A glance down at the display can give the rider info about approaching vehicles’ proximities and speed.

    Pricing, Availability

    As of Sep. 21, the Como, Vado, and Tero e-bikes are available in a number of finishes through Specialized and its many partner dealers worldwide. Prices vary by model and range from $3,250 MSRP to $5,500 MSRP. Put some power in your ride over at Specialized.com.

    总体最佳:Ibex Apparel 24小时T恤(

    Vermont-based Ibex has been making merino apparel since 1997. After a short out-of-business stint (that then lasted 2 years), the Ibex brand is finally back. We’ve been testing a number of its spring 2021 styles, including its 24-Hour tees.

    The 24-Hour merino tee is made with 100% 19.5-micron merino wool and is just as soft and light as it sounds. What we love most about this tee: It wicks away odor great, it feels nice against the skin, it works as a standalone tee or base layer, and it’s easy to hand wash and hang dry — perfect for travel.

    Based on how often we’ve worn it so far and its performance, we’re hoping this merino shirt (it’s a bit of an investment) lasts for years.

    What’s more, it breathes! Synthetic performs by the numbers, but the feel of natural materials — and merino wool in particular — is unparalleled. And no one does merino better than Ibex — so it’s great to see the brand in full swing!

    Our only note of warning with this tee is it is more fitted. So, if you want a roomier fit or if you are in between sizes, be sure to size up.

    And heads up, this Ibex merino tee comes in a tank (even lighter with 18.5-micron wool) and long sleeve versions as well — leaving you even more options for style and fit.

    Runner-Up: Icebreaker Tech Lite II Short Sleeve (Women’s & Men’s)

    icebreaker tech lite

    Our staff tester has a couple of these Tech Lites, and loves them year-round. In hot weather, the Tech Lite II tee is light, breathable, and airy. In cooler weather, it still feels soft, comfortable, and protective next to skin.

    The Tech Lite II is made with 100% odor-wicking, natural merino. For us, it felt just a bit thinner than other tees we had in testing, which made us wary about its durability. That being said, after a few months of testing, we’re comfortable with the quality. We also really loved the fit and coverage of this tee, especially the sleeve length and women’s cut.

    For quality 100% merino, Icebreaker’s Tech Lite II is also a pretty good price.

    Best Budget: Smartwool Merino 150 Plant-Based Dye Short Sleeve (Women’s & Men’s)

    smartwool merino 150 tee

    Old news: Smartwool doesn’t just make socks — it makes all sorts of apparel. This new plant-dyed version of Smartwool’s Merino 150 tee is a wicking T-shirt that not only kept us cool on warmer-weather hikes, but also offered good coverage and some style. Smartwool’s Merino 150 is majority merino (87%) with a nylon-spun core for durability.

    This layer is a super-comfortable piece at a great price, and now more sustainably made. In terms of construction, we like the part-merino, part-synthetic blend — it seems to be a good balance of soft, stretchy, breathable, and durable. The longer length also makes it a great choice for those who run taller.

    We also like that the layer was durable when packed, worn, and washed multiple times over the few months we tested. And, that the three plant-based dye colors are a unique departure from the standard black or gray hues you usually see in merino layers. Who doesn’t love tie-dye?

    For Cycling: Kitsbow Laurel Merino Tee — Women’s & Mullinax Merino Tee — Men’s

    kitsbow tee

    This probably had to be the merino shirt I got the most compliments on while wearing, both on the bike and at the brewery/around town — I’m guessing due to the simple but flattering design and the colors. The drop hem and the slightly longer raglan sleeves were one reason why we chose this for our favorite cycling- or MTB-specific layer. But honestly, it worked great for hiking and general outdoor wear, too.

    It’s also worth noting that this is designed by a cycling apparel company. But it’s definitely a tee, not a jersey — there are no pockets on this shirt. Still, it served its function as a comfortable, odor-wicking go-to layer.

    Kitsbow’s merino shirts are made with a 75% merino wool and 25% synthetic blend. It even claims that the fabric blend wicks faster (and dries faster) than just pure merino. We didn’t quite know how to test this claim, but did like the tee’s performance enough that it made it on our list!

    Our last bonus point for Kitsbow’s Mulligan and Lauren merino shirts — they are made right here in the USA.

    For Running: Oiselle Flyout Wool Tee

    oiselle flyout tee

    Women’s running apparel brand Oiselle touts merino wool as the “Swiss Army knife” of fabrics. And we happen to agree. The Oiselle Flyout is made with a majority merino wool and polyester blend. It’s got the natural properties of merino, but a thicker plated-knit — Polartec Power Wool — with the addition of synthetic polyester (Bluesign-approved!) for durability.

    The Flyout has a soft feel, but it’s also pretty solid in its construction. We noticed the two-toned threads, as well as the seams on the hem and collar (not flatlock) that gave the shirt both a little grip and maybe some element of design. This is a simple and subtle shirt, with a slightly tapered fit. But we love it.

    For running and sweatier, dirtier, and maybe more rugged activities, we definitely vote for this layer. (Aside from the color choices that is, which don’t lend themselves to too much dirt. Yes, after just one or two wears, we had to wash ours.)

    The last major perk with this budget-friendly merino tee? It’s available from size 2 all the way up to plus sizes 20/22.

    Honorable Mentions: More Merino Layers

    Helly Hansen Kids’ Merino Mid Base Layer Top

    helly hansen merino long sleeve kid's top with stripe pattern

    We’d be remiss not to include our favorite merino wool shirt for the little ones while we’re at it. Helly Hansen’s Merino Mid Base Layer top took the cake in that category.

    Like many of the adult merino tees we listed above, this top functions great as a standalone layer for a variety of outdoor activities, or as a base layer/layering add-on for when the temps drop. Though given that it’s long sleeve and midweight, it’s definitely better as a baselayer.

    The Merino Mid Kids’ Base Layer is made with 19.5-micron, non-mulesed merino wool and flatlock seams. It offers a bit of stretch and wicking — but, most importantly, an extra-soft feel perfect for little kids. This layer is available in children’s sizes 2T-4T.

    Allbirds Apparel Wool Hoodie

    allbirds wool hoodie

    Sustainable hemp shoe brand Allbirds started making apparel last fall. One of its first drops was the Wool Hoodie ($138), made with 100% ZQ merino wool in a double-knit construction.

    Of all the merino hoodie layers on our list, this one is the thickest, thanks to the thick-gauge yarn, as well as its sturdy, yet comfy, detailing like the roomy hood and ribbed cuffs and hem. It’s not crazy expensive for a hoodie, and it solves something a merino tee or base layer just can’t: the need for extra-cozy extra warmth.

    In addition to Allbird’s Wool Hoodie merino construction, comfort, cozy fit, and warmth, this layer has even more cool features. For one, the merino wool is sustainably sourced and OEKO-TEX certified. Two, the entire hoodie is carbon neutral. Allbirds achieves this by using only natural materials and then offsetting its manufacturing with credits.

    If you are looking for a less performance-oriented, more “sweater weather” style layer, this is a good one.

    Voormi River Run Wool Hoodie — Men’s & Women’s 

    voormi ultralight wool hoodie in gray

    The Voormi River Run is 100% merino wool but made with a unique blend and construction. Voormi uses its Dual Surface ultralight Precision Blended Wool, a fabric weighing under 100 g per square meter. That’s 30 to 50 g lighter than the leading ultralight merino fabrics currently on the market, Voormi claims.

    In hand, when packing, and when wearing, we can attest that it’s light. It’s also colored using a wool-specific, individual-yarn dying method.

    Now, on to our feedback. I’m not sure where I haven’t worn this Voormi layer — that’s just how versatile it is. Paddleboarding, camping, climbing, snowshoeing, kayaking, hiking, running errands (and if I fished, I’d wear it fishing). The Voormi River Run was designed with everything from fly fishing day trips to multiday river trips in mind, which is one of the main reasons we love it so.

    But it’s also a UPF 50-rated long sleeve with a hood. So, if you are heading up into alpine territory, or looking for a merino base layer for fall, it’s a good choice for that as well. Our only con? It’s crazy ultralight and soft, meaning it’s prone to snag easily.

    Buyer’s Guide: How to Choose 

    100% Merino, or Merino Blend?

    This one is, you guessed it, personal preference. That said, there are certain things that 100% merino wool is hands-down good at. Things like providing a next-to-skin base layer for skiing or a long sleeve (great for cooling and wicking in warmer weather, and insulating and wicking in cooler weather). Whether you need a merino layer for hiking, hunting, or just spending time outside, consider all the uses merino shirts are great for.

    If you are investing in a merino shirt for, say, a backpacking trip, or if durability is of high importance, go for a merino wool blend. Also, if you are brand new to merino and just want to try it out and see what all the fuss is about, a merino blend can be a bit more wallet-friendly the first time around.

    Fit and Styles

    We included a variety of shirts: tees, long-sleeve tops, and tanks on this list. What we didn’t include is all merino wool layers under the sun. We focused on shirts because they are versatile for a variety of weather and activities. (Our staff wears them year-round.)

    If you are looking for winter-specific merino base layer sets, zip-up merino layers, or merino underwear (yes, it’s a thing!), we’ve got separate coverage on that too.

    Price

    When you buy a merino wool shirt or garment, you aren’t just buying, you are investing. Investing in a higher quality, naturally odor-wicking, and hopefully much longer-lasting layer. Synthetics are great, and there can be high-quality synthetic blends that have the same properties, but certain folks swear by merino.

    If you know you want a natural fabric that comes with all the soft, cooling, and wicking properties that merino does, keep price in mind — $80 for a T-shirt?! It sounds ridiculous at first, but the price does truly reflect the quality of merino wool fabric.

    Why the higher price in the first place? Merino wool is a more expensive fabric — more time-intensive to produce, expensive to import, and more fragile to work with compared to thicker synthetic yarns. So I always weigh that factor when purchasing anything with merino.

    FAQ

    What’s So Special About Merino Wool?

    Merino wool is a natural material, meaning it doesn’t come from manmade plastics or synthetics. It’s lightweight and soft to the touch. It wicks away moisture and odors, and it helps regulate body temperature. All of that wrapped into a single fabric. No wonder humans have been using and wearing wool since 10,000 BCE.

    However, because of all of merino’s great properties, it is in high demand and usually more expensive than other fabrics. The narrow sourcing and supply chain of merino wool also contributes to its market value. The majority of the wool on the market is produced in Australia, Argentina, and New Zealand.

    Is Merino Wool Better Than Cotton?

    In simple terms, yes. When it comes to exercising or spending lots of time in the outdoor elements, double yes. Merino is better in the sense that it is a natural and porous fiber. So, if you are sweating, that sweat can escape —this is what makes merino a natural at regulating moisture and body temp, wicking away odor, and cooling.

    Cotton is an especially thick synthetic fabric, much different than lightweight or nano-spun synthetics, and much different than merino wool.

    Is Merino Wool Itchy?

    Heavy wool blankets or wool-lined slippers might evoke ideas of an itchy, coarse fabric, but put those thoughts aside — merino wool is different. Merino wool is notoriously fine — with fine, fragile, and soft fibers.

    Merino garments are even measured by the tiny diameters of the fibers, called microns. Most merino wool shirts we tested used merino wool that measured between 17.5 and 20 microns.

    And the smaller the microns, the finer the fabric. If you are looking for the softest merino layer money can buy, you’ll want to look somewhere in the 15- to 17-micron fabric range.

    How Does Merino Wool Keep You Warm?

    Merino wool (wool from a sheep) naturally retains heat to keep you warm. But, thanks again to its porous fiber nature, it’s still breathable at the same time.

    How Does Merino Wool Keep You Cool?

    The fact that merino wool both retains heat and wicks away sweat — it works to both warm you up and cool you down — is one of its best properties. Wool keeps you cool by letting sweat escape through the fibers and away from your skin and body. This means you won’t get clammy or the chills, and it also helps with wicking body odor.

    Other fibers — synthetics or plant-based fabrics — are not as fine, porous, or breathable. They’ll do the job, but not as good a job. (That being said, our staff has a great time testing the latest in bio-based fabrics — unique layers sewn with everything from bamboo to hemp to corn.)

    How Often Should I Wash Merino Wool Shirts?

    You’ll want to treat your merino shirts and layers with care. Because merino is a natural fiber, you also don’t want to use bleach, scents, or fabric softeners that can clog up the wool and prevent merino from doing all the things it does naturally.

    Washing every few wears — sometimes even just once or twice a month — with cold or warm water and mild soap is all you need. Even when I wear a lot of merino wool when in the outdoors, I try to wash sparingly. And I always air dry or hang to dry.

    Airstream Basecamp 20 with truck in mountains

    Suddenly you realize that, as with all enterprises, there’s real work and risk involved. Fortunately, the aforementioned RV rental facilitators can make this much easier.

    How much easier depends on what model you choose — and we’ll guide you to the choice that works for you.

    Choosing a Rental Model

    For a totally hands-off experience, you can follow the consignment route with an outfit like Northwest Adventure Rentals. The company manages not only the turnover and customer interaction but also the cleaning, vehicle maintenance, and more. You hand over the keys, and they take care of the rest. They also take the biggest cut — a whopping 40-60% of the rental income.

    If you’re willing to do some of the work yourself, consider the “peer-to-peer” or “Airbnb” model. Peer-to-peer models offer the best income, with commissions varying from 15% to 25%.

    Some companies you’ve likely already heard of include Outdoorsy and RVshare. These are big players with tens of thousands of wheels in their fleets. They connect you directly with potential renters, and you can choose whom to work with.

    After the connection, all the work is on you. You’ll have to build your own listing profile (consider hiring a professional photographer) and screen your renters diligently. Your RV will have to be outfitted with all required amenities and be filled with fuel and cleaned for every renter.

    Smaller boutique P2P models such as GoCamp offer a bit more service. They hold your hand throughout the entire process to make sure your listing has dynamite photos and your customers walk away happy.

    While this can be a nice option, GoCamp is currently limited to a few Western cities and only accepts class B RVs (van-sized). Also of concern, you might not get the leads needed to be successful, as smaller websites generally see fewer visitors. GoCamp is an exception, however, as it has cross-listing agreements with Outdoorsy and RVshare.

    Renter Screening

    At a minimum, all P2P services conduct a driver’s license check. Any renter with multiple traffic violations, DUIs, etc. will be flagged. That doesn’t mean you’re always getting a solid driver, but it’s a good start. As with most rental vehicles, drivers must be 25 years or older to apply.

    Insurance

    You might have second thoughts about handing the key of your $80,000 toy to a total stranger, but that’s the name of the game. Fortunately, all these rental groups offer solid insurance as part of their services.

    First is up to $1 million in liability if a renter files a lawsuit against you. Second is protection for your vehicle; in this case, the renter takes responsibility for the duration of the trip. They can choose how much coverage they want during checkout.

    Typical RV insurance only covers the vehicle while it’s in your possession. Renters’ insurance takes effect as soon as you hand over the keys. Bigger sites such as Outdoorsy and RVezy utilize a cellphone app to make the vehicle damage check process painless. Owners and renters can digitally sign an agreement before a trip starts.

    Roadside Assistance

    This truck dangling from its trailer safety chains is something that actually happened. You can read about it here.

    Roadside assistance options are available for renters to purchase at their discretion. In some cases, you can require renters to select this option. Beyond that, you, as the owner, are responsible for the integrity and roadworthiness of your vehicle.

    Maximizing Income

    Add-on items and services allow you to maximize your profits. If you have a couple of surfboards that don’t get used often, you can add them as an option for a daily fee. Bikes, paddleboards, and rack systems are all popular side orders for an RV adventure. Some sites will also allow you to profit from airport pickup and dropoff if you’re willing.

    Choosing a Rental Company

    So now you know the risks and rewards, which company is right for you? The short answer is that you can’t go too wrong. The RV rental industry is mature, and the cream has risen to the top.

    We feel confident recommending any of these RV rental networks. The decision depends on which trade-offs work for you. First, let’s narrow down the options based on the type of RV you have.

    VanRentalMatrixThere are a lot of opinions out there on the interwebs and Reddit, so you can find an argument for any of these companies. You’ll find horror stories as well as tales of fortunes made renting travel trailers.

    We focused on data and hard numbers for comparison. We also called each service just to make sure you can speak to a human on the other end and quizzed them about crucial details. Here’s a quick rundown:

    RV Rental Comp Chart

    Outdoorsy

    Vintage Travel Trailer

    Outdoorsy is the biggest fish in the pond. Like Airbnb, prospective renters can message first or just request to book; a deposit is required to formally request a booking. Outdoorsy’s app also features messaging, pre-departure photos and claims, and a digital manual about the vehicle.

    Similar to RVezy, Outdoorsy takes 20% off the top of all fees. Older vehicles, including vintage RVs, are encouraged to list. They also have complimentary listing advisors that will help you improve your listing.

    RVshare

    The next largest is RVshare. Besides taking a larger cut (25%), RVshare is very similar to Outdoorsy. It also offers one-on-one consultations with an advisor to help perfect your listing.

    RVshare doesn’t offer a cellphone app but has a robust web interface.

    RVezy

    RVezy accepts all styles of RVs — classes A, B, and C as well as trailers. Motorized RVs must be newer than 20 years old (25 years for travel trailers). The company takes 20% off the top of all bookings, cleanings, add-ons, and fees.

    Its app is solid and allows for easy, secure communication between the renter and owner. The app also facilitates the pre-ride checkout and claims process.

    Strangely, by default, renters are not required to buy supplemental insurance. If you go with RVezy, make sure you know to select that accordingly.

    GoCamp

    20_1031_AaronWessling_GoCamp_Hygge_-48
    Photo/Aaron Wessling, GoCamp

    GoCamp only allows class B RVs, but they can be any age. They target the #vanlife crowd and operate in a handful of cities in the Western U.S.

    GoCamp returns the most to you with a 20% commission that only applies to the base rate (not cleaning or add-on fees). If you list more than one van, that drops to 15%.

    GoCamp effectively curates your post during the process. If you’re not handy with photos, the company offers to send your van out with a photographer in exchange for a night of rental. The word “curated” could not be more appropriate here; it’s a very polished brand.

    GoCamp also manages interactions with potential renters before introducing those renters to you. This keeps you from being barraged with simple FAQs. One downside is that most requests to change your calendar or otherwise manage your listing require emails, as there’s no GoCamp app yet.

    What Worked for Me

    I did a ton of research. I knew I wanted the income of the P2P model but with as little work as possible. In the end, GoCamp was an easy choice. I grilled its coordinator for at least an hour (she is terrifically patient) before signing up.

    The onboarding process is lengthy, with many online forms that build your listing page and a “road ready” manual. It’s a few hours, but it’s time well spent to attract renters and set them up for success.

    My van, Milo, currently rents for about $200 per night. I also offer surf, paddleboard, and bike racks as optional add-ons to maximize my profits and keep the dust off of some of the gear in my outdoor adventure quiver.

    I was only able to get my rental up and running for the last 6 weeks of summer, but my calendar filled up almost immediately. I would estimate that my take was around $3,000 per month for July and August. In the offseason, I’m guessing that will drop to $2,000 per month or less when the snow hits.

    I’ve had mostly good renters — a few missing and broken items are just the nature of the business. If you’re the type who fawns over your RV like a pet, this is not the side gig for you.

    Investment: Money, Time, Energy

    Money

    Here at GearJunkie, we live the experience, and so as a part of reporting on P2P RVs, I bought and listed my own RV.

    I loved the sensible layout and practicality of the classic VW Westfalia style, but the newest “westy” eurovans are now 20 years old! Fortunately, I spotted a 2016 Mercedes Metris conversion that’s the same layout but much newer. The only problem is that it was in Austin, and I live in Portland.

    After some back-and-forth with the owner, I booked a ticket to Texas and handed over $38,000 cash, the first purchase for my van rental company “Avantura” (Croatian for “adventure”!).

    I had the next 2,473 miles to figure out all the systems on my new Mercedes. I realized I desperately needed a stool to reach the upper bunk and fitted a cover for a very noisy overhead vent. I kept a journal as I figured things out, which would turn into a manual for my renters.

    By the time I got back to Oregon, I’d spent hours figuring out how I wanted to outfit Milo. I quickly dumped another $3,000 into upgrades, springing for a modern lithium battery system from Dakota Lithium. I wanted my renters to be able to travel for days without worrying about power.

    How Much Is Your Time Worth?

    While you might consider this “passive income,” it’s not without its costs. Owners are responsible for cleaning and re-outfitting vans before delivery. Depending on the program, you might be doing a lot of laundry and dishes between rentals, not to mention washing and cleaning your RV.

    Propane and gas refills also eat away at your time. For some, a few hours to turn over a van will be well worth the income — just don’t discount the effort required.

    It’s also important to budget your time for meeting with renters when they arrive and going over all the various RV systems and features so they know how to use them correctly. Plan to spend at least 30-45 minutes each time. You don’t want to risk a propane fire or sewage surprise because someone didn’t close the right valve.

    Energy

    Think about Airbnb-ing an apartment and renting a car at the same time — you get all the problems combined. It’s a lot to clean and turn over an RV, especially when you adopt the full-service model providing linens, cookware, headlamps, etc. There are so many little things to check. Are the batteries charged? Did they leave the chairs filthy?

    It helps to put a system in place and have checklists, but the amount of work is not trivial.

    Is It Worth It?

    I’m an engineer — so naturally, I have a spreadsheet that accounts for upfront costs, maintenance, depreciation, business registration, and even budgeting my time. On paper, so far, I’m looking great!

    It’s amazing to think that with the income I’m bringing in, Milo will be paid for by the end of next summer … but I might not last that long.

    The impact on my personal life and being at the whim of renters is a burden. I made the mistake of asking my wife to clean the van and hand off the keys while I went sailing in the San Juans for a week. She called in tears after the detailer I’d scheduled didn’t show up, and the van’s cabinets wouldn’t open just hours before a renter was scheduled to arrive. Yes, there may be relationship costs!

    On the other hand, it’s been tremendously gratifying enabling people’s adventures and dreams. I really enjoy sending people away with the keys. Plus, long-term rentals make for more profit with far less work. I have a renter in October taking the keys for 2 weeks, netting me $2,600.

    PXL_20210624_130646126

    So the jury is still out! If you already own an RV, the potential revenue is compelling. But I wouldn’t necessarily recommend buying a vehicle just for the side income.

    For us, the upside of having a fully kitted van for our own adventures is well worth it. I reserve a weekend with Milo for personal trips every couple of months. When you pop the top at the beach and crack open a beer after surfing, it’s all worthwhile.

    Aerolite是如何工作的?

    OK, so the first thing we need to discuss is how insulation works. As much as we’d like to think these high-tech materials keep us warm, trapped air is actually nature’s best insulator. And the materials used dictate the amount of trapped air doing the job.

    Say you’re wearing a down coat. It’s very cold outside, but it’s dry. And you’re very warm. The high loft of the down is trapping a lot of air inside of the coat. Then, someone dumps a bucket of cold water over your head. The down jacket compresses when wet, and those lofty (and even treated) feathers clump up. The loft is gone. It’s now very cold and you are soaked. You die.

    OK, I overdramatized a bit. But to sum up how PrimaLoft Gold Insulation with Cross Core technology is different, I’ll start here. Aerogel is the world’s lightest insulator — made nearly entirely of air. It’s also super delicate, easily shattered, and water-soluble.

    What PrimaLoft’s latest iteration does is encapsulate aerogel in a way that makes it ideal for outerwear. Incorporating aerogel into the weave of the fabric creates mini air pockets that insulate with less weight and bulk as well as adding what I’ll call built-in loft to the fabric. It also negated the difficult properties of aerogel with this new tech.

    Unlike down or other lofted materials, you can sit on Aerolite, compress it as much as you want, soak it in water, sleep on it, whatever — and you won’t push the insulating air out of the garment. Voila! It keeps its thermal integrity.

    It’s worth noting several outdoor recreation brands have already implemented this insulation in products. L.L.Bean launched a sleeping bag with PrimaLoft Gold Insulation a couple of years ago. But the hunting market is now getting this major new tech too. In comes Sitka Gear.

    The Sitka Gear Aerolite Collection

    Focusing primarily on outerwear and one sleep option, the Aerolite collection aims to outfit hunters with the best warm-when-wet technology the market has to offer.

    Currently, the collection focuses on men’s gear. Offerings begin at the revamped Kelvin jacket ($299) and Kelvin vest ($199) in the midlayer range. And from there, three separate outer layer jacket and bib combinations exist for the waterfowl hunter, the Western big-game hunter, and the whitetail hunter.

    Example: The Incinerator collection for whitetail hunters sounds toasty, right? These are fully waterproof, thoughtful pieces incorporating PrimaLoft for ultimate thermal performance in wet conditions.

    In addition to this apparel collection, the Kelvin Aerolite 30 Sleeping Bag is the final layer for a total Sitka Gear system approach to hunting clothing. It’s wildly innovative, and Sitka designed it to go with your entire kit. Puffy, pants, base layers, the whole shebang. It can also transition into a warm layer to wear around camp, when glassing, or in an emergency situation in the elements.

    The collection is — as one might guess — costly. Pieces range from $199 to $749. Combine the Blizzard jacket and pants, and you’re looking at about $1,450. It’s not a small investment.

    But for people who spend day in and day out in hazardous conditions, this lofty and perfectly warm material can be lifesaving. And if nothing else, it is a dependable sort of warmth that’s new to the market. It’s freakin’ cool, if not for everyone.

    Final Thoughts on Aerolite

    GearJunkie will be trekking a few Aerolite pieces into the woods this fall and winter. We’re excited to test out these garments in the conditions Sitka made them for. And we’ll definitely be covering this collection more after testing.

    It’s hard to underestimate Sitka Gear. The gear nerd in me is stoked on the viability of aerogel in this new wearable format.

    If you’re a hunting guide, a connoisseur of cold and wet climates, or just someone who loves wearing the latest and greatest in the field, the Aerolite collection is likely for you.

    post高性能且价格合理:Gerber’;s盐水线击中目标首先出现在GearJunkie

    在一个性能PLYER和刀具的价格可以高达数百美元的世界里,Gerber的咸水产品提供价值、可靠性和性能。

    Gerber Gear的咸水产品线有很多值得喜欢的地方。和Gerber&8217的两个产品;s Salt line在混合经济性和性能方面表现出色。

    该品牌的盐水设备采用Gerber的专有盐Rx处理。这种处理方法可有效防止腐蚀,使钳子始终保持功能和外观良好。

    使用Gerber’;s盐专用工具,只需用清水冲洗并晾干即可。然后你可以把它们放好,装进你的包里,下次你想用它们的时候不会发现一个橙色的生锈的乱球。

    我在美国各地的盐钓中广泛测试了Magnipliers和Controller鱼片刀。以下是我的想法。

    Gerber’s line of Controller Fillet knives is similarly well thought out. The Controller comes in 6-inch, 8-inch, and 10-inch straight blades as well as a 6-inch folding option. Each combines sharpness, backbone, and flexibility, the latter two points being important components of the fillet knife.

    Getting the ratio right imparts the ability to cut through rib bones. It also allows the knife to bend enough to separate the skin from the meat once the fillet has been removed from the body of the fish.

    Often, knives that have the strength to cut through ribs and scales aren’t capable when it comes to the finer touches of removing skin. The same can be true of knives that possess the flexibility to be good for skinning fish but aren’t strong enough to cut through bones.

    The Gerber Controller line, rather, presents a well-rounded package that makes it a good all-around knife.

    I used it to fillet a 40-inch cobia in Texas. Cobia are great to eat, and they’re the type of prize that makes you happy when heading to the fillet table. And this sharp, well-appointed knife made all the difference.

    Not only does the blade come sharp enough to shave with, but the edge also holds up well through time. It also takes a sharpening nicely — something that can’t be said of certain other brands of knives.

    The Controller’s handle is also aptly designed. Termed “Hydrotread,” the grip consists of raised sections and channels that drain moisture to prevent it from becoming slippery. This feature, the traction associated with the grip material, and the knife’s hand-friendly design keep it from slipping.

    All things considered, the Controller fillet knife from Gerber is a great all-around fillet knife.

    It has the sharpness and flexibility to handle smaller fish and the backbone needed to clean larger ones as well. The folding option makes it easy to toss in your console or tackle bag. I recommend it highly.

    Rattlesnake Gulch Trail 

    Sitting in the shadow of 8,299-foot Grandeur Peak is this awesome SLC trail. Rattlesnake Gulch offers all the best aspects of other hikes in the eastern Salt Lake Valley area, wrapped into one. It’s a shorter distance but moderate terrain, and can quickly be linked up to several other trails to form a loop or longer endeavor.

    It’s accessible year-round, offers great wildflower and wildlife viewing, and it’s dog-friendly. And Rattlesnake Gulch isn’t just for hiking — you can run or mountain bike this trail too.

    Decide you are hardcore and want to summit the entire Grandeur Peak? You can get to the top from Rattlesnake Gulch, too. (Follow Rattlesnake Gulch Trail to the Pipeline Trail to Grandeur Peak East.) There’s a nice big paved parking lot at this trailhead, though no restroom (just head a few miles down the road to the Grandeur TH to find one).

    • Miles from downtown SLC: 12 mi.
    • Driving time: ~20 min.
    • Trail mileage: 3.4 mi. out and back or loop
    • Difficulty: moderate

    Red Butte Canyon Trails

    The Red Butte Canyon Hiking Area is an amazing and easily accessible outdoor destination that SLC has to offer. A few steps away from the University of Utah, Red Butte offers everything from garden paths, to short tourist overlooks, to challenging singletrack trails — plus steeper and rockier terrain and big summits for those who like a challenge. This is a well-developed area, with parking, water access, and restrooms nearby.

    We recommend hiking the Mount Van Cott Trail via the Red Butte Canyon Trail Loop (these trails run together, and you can hike it clockwise or counterclockwise). The trail loop is steep, but rewarding in views.

    Mount Van Cott sits at 6,300 feet, so the top portion of the hike can get windy. While at the top, be sure to check out views of the adjacent Red Butte Mountain to the south and the adjoining Twin Peaks to the north.

    Plus, you can add on the quick, 1.4-mile jaunt up Red Butte Overlook while you’re in the area. In total, you’ll hike about 6 miles.

    • Miles from downtown SLC: 5 mi.
    • Driving time: ~18 min.
    • Trail mileage: 4.3-mi. loop, 6 mi. out and back
    • Difficulty: moderate

    City Creek Canyon Trailhead

    This trail weaves through City Creek Canyon and follows City Creek the entire way — 6.5 miles. If you are craving a nice scenic creek walk — maybe with some wildflowers and waterfalls, close proximity to the city, and flexibility in mileage — SLC’s City Creek is for you. This is also an out and back, so you can make the hike however long you want — 3 miles, 4 miles, or the whole thing.

    It’s one of the flatter trails on this list, so it’s also good for a big group or family hikes. As you get further into the canyon, you’ll start to get better views of various peaks in the Wasatch Mountains.

    • Miles from downtown SLC: 3 mi.
    • Driving time: ~10 min.
    • Trail mileage: 6.5 mi. out and back
    • Difficulty: moderate

    Lake Blanche Trail

    Lake Blanche is a moderate trail off Big Cottonwood Canyon Road. It’s home to a very scenic trail and has several options for waterfall and lake viewpoints. Climb up along a creek for a bit, and then over a few switchbacks (this trail gains and drops the whole way).

    And another note, the amount of elevation puts this hike on the more difficult side. At the top, you’ll find Lake Blanche, along with her sister lakes Lillian and Florence.

    This trail is also in the protected Twin Peaks wilderness area, meaning no dogs, and camping and backpacking are permitted.

    • Miles from downtown SLC: 20 mi.
    • Driving time: ~30 min.
    • Trail mileage: 6.8 mi. out and back
    • Difficulty: moderate to difficult

    Mueller Park Trailhead

    Hike #1: Located in Wasatch-Cache National Forest, the Elephant Rock Trail is a must-see if you are spending even just a few days in Salt Lake. The trail is a 6.8- to 7-mile out and back to the Big Rock, and this trail is open to hikers, dogs, and horses.

    It’s also got a perfect mix of scenery: a creek, both tree coverage and open vistas, rocky overlooks, and some elevation but not too much. There’s a picnic area and restroom at the trailhead.

    Hike #2: If you are a speed-hiker or trail runner looking for more of a challenge, Mueller Park offers the largest mileage hike on our favorites list. You can cover 19 miles hiking or running from the Elephant Rock trail to North Canyon in Mueller Park. It’s not an easy one, with the steepest sections topping out around 20% grades.

    This trail option circles and tops out on several prominent peaks, and is also open to mountain biking. (Note: Because it’s also popular with mountain bikers, we recommend hiking on a weekday, or getting out early.)

    • Miles from downtown SLC: 14 mi.
    • Driving time: ~20 min.
    • Trail mileage: 7 mi. out and back, or 19 mi. point to point
    • Difficulty: moderate

    Next time you are in Utah — we’re talking Salt Lake City and not Moab — be sure to save time for some of these great hikes.

    在12月12日,MTB星牌McElveen在19小时和45分钟内分化了冰岛的崎岖荒野,迄今为止最快的速度记录。

    帖子新冰岛fkt:mcellyen在20小时内穿过整个国家/地区首先出现在 gearjunkie

    9月12日,MTB明星佩森·麦克尔文(Payson McElveen)成为第一个在一天内以公平方式将冰岛一分为二的人。通过这样做,他还设定了一个新的冰岛FKT,仅为19小时45分钟。

    佩森·麦克尔文(Payson McElveen)凭借他在各种条件下打破并创造速度纪录的近乎奇异的能力,首次夺得自行车界的冠军。这位红牛运动员在本月早些时候又一次这样做了——覆盖了冰岛和8217之间257英里的路段;这是第一次有人在不到24小时的时间内用无人支援的人力穿越美国。这一壮举听起来远非一次愉快的航行。令人讨厌的寒冷天气折磨着这位骑手,他正穿越偏远的偏远地区。

    麦克尔文说,“自从2019年白环FKT获得成功以来,我一直在考虑其他以地理位置为重点的路线,以期在这方面做出更大的努力。对我来说,这些都是这些天来最激励我的挑战。从一个地标开始,尽可能快地行驶,直到你真的跑出了道路或小径。在这种情况下,这是在第二天撞上了大海。”e该国南部。”

    这次长途跋涉以冰岛最不友好的双轨地形为特色,其中大部分是为高净空汽车保留的。麦克尔文在没有加油站的情况下完成了旅程,因此他携带了7000卡路里的热量和几公升的水,从沿海城市阿库雷里出发。

    从那里,他忍受了严酷的天气天气异常恶劣,包括7小时的冷雨、强风和华氏31度左右的底部温度。一天后,他来到了维克的南部海岸线。

    McElveen offered some post-op wisdom to future Iceland FKT cyclists: “Iceland’s weather is some of the most dynamic in the world, especially in September. I would strongly recommend riding in the warmer, drier months of the summer and take more clothing and food than you think you need.”

    His close friend and adventure partner, photographer Chris Burkard, said, “Having personally ridden through it, around and across it, slogging thousands of miles of Icelandic gravel — I know a thing or two about Iceland’s terrain by bike, and this achievement can only be compared to a near-mythical achievement.

    “Payson’s ride pays homage to thousands of years of overland travel through this wild country and in many ways is impossible to truly describe to anyone who hasn’t sunk their tires deep into its remote and endless gravel roads.”
