Maxpedition Falcon ii Vs Falcon iii

Maxpedition Falcon II vs Falcon III

Trying to find a backpack that can meet the requirements of being an EDC bag or be equally at home out in the wilderness can be difficult.

Not every bag is designed the same way and some bags can leave you in tough predicaments when they fall apart.

Maxpedition produces some of the top talked about packs today, but they didn’t achieve their almost celeb like following from being ordinary or like the rest.

These bags are trusted by hundreds of hunters/hikers and even regular folk who just want a pack that can accompany them to work and back.

So when we were given the opportunity to review the Maxpedition Falcon II and Falcon III, we practically leaped at the opportunity.

Below we’ve covered their similarities, differences as well as some other things to be aware of.

Icey Tek vs Yeti

icey tek vs yeti

There’s nothing worse than coming back to the campground and finding the food in your cooler spoiled because the ice melted and now everything is soggy and wet.

They’re essential to every camping or outdoor adventure but we don’t really pay them any mind until it comes time to dust them off or when we’re opening them and hoping our food and drinks are still cold.

A cheap cooler will do the job for short spurts of time, but what if you intend to be out all day or for several days?

Then you need something more reliable other than the cooler you can pick up from your grocery store on the way to heading out for your trip.

In this review, we’ve reviewed a popular cooler that has a popular following and another cooler from a manufacturer that is slowly climbing the ranks: The Yeti and The Icey-Tek.

Looking for your next cooler to take with you on your next adventure?

Ahnu Sugarpine Vs Montara Boots Review

ahnu montara vs sugarpine

Trying to find the right hiking boots seems easy until you realize just how many options there are to pick from. Online shopping has made it both easier and difficult since it provides us with more choices than the local boot store.

But sometimes visiting your local store is impossible if you have a crazy schedule or are a weekend hiker who would rather be out blazing trails instead of being in some stuffy department store.

We get it.

Both the Ahnu Montara Boots and Sugarpine Boots were getting raving reviews, so we thought these boots would be a good place to start.

We’ve compared them here in our ahnu montara boot vs ahnu sugarpine review so you can see how they stack up.

Please keep in mind that these are women’s hiking boots, so if you’re a man or unless you have dainty feet….well

Let’s just jump straight into it.

Best Heavy Duty Tent Pegs 2019

Man set up a tent on top of cliffs

I love camping, but I’ve had my fair share of miserable camp experiences, especially when it comes to tent problems. When I was a kid, my camp-loving family actually swore off tent camping and bought a trailer after the worst tent experience ever.

Of course, trailer camping isn’t quite the same as tent camping, you certainly can’t pack a trailer out into the wilderness. Want to enjoy great camping trips without tent failures? Then you need to invest in some good tent pegs.

Everyone knows the tent pegs that come with most tents are crap. You can’t pound them into hard dirt or expect them to stick in soft earth.

I once watched with great amusement as a friend’s tent blew across the beach after its tent pegs totally failed in the sand. If you don’t want to be the dude chasing a tent – or pounding dangerous rebar in the ground—then it’s time to get some real tent pegs.

If you want something you can rely on, then it’s a good idea to invest in quality tent pegs. As a rule, these tend to be affordable, and they can be worth their weight in gold when you get a good night of sleep out in the wilderness.

Wondering where to get good tent anchors for your next camping trip? You’re in the right place! We’ll look at the various types of tent stakes and give you a recommendation for each.
