weber q2200 vs q3200

 

Trying to decide between the Weber 2200 and the 3200?

Compact grills are great if you don’t need the cooking capacity of larger BBQs or just don’t have a lot of room to work with (i.e. you live on an upper level apartment with a small patio space).

These two gas grills are two of the most popular compact grills offered by Weber and today we’re going to compare the two of them to help you determine which one is best suited for you.

So, whether you need something that can be tossed into the back of your car or SUV, or you just need something that won’t take up much space on your apartment patio, keep reading.

Yakima Megawarrior Vs Loadwarrior Review

yakima megawarrior vs loadwarrior


Yakima is one of the most popular brands you’ll hear biking enthusiasts mention when anyone suggests who to go to for bike racks or roof racks.

Their reputation to produce quality products that anyone can rely on has positioned them as one of the top brands for biking or outdoors enthusiasts;

So today we’ll look into two popular rooftop baskets produced from Yakima themselves: The Yakima Megawarrior and the Loadwarrior.

But first, why would anyone want a rooftop basket?

If you need to carry additional equipment or gear that you don’t have room in your vehicle for, then a cargo basket can make it easy to tote extras.

Now let’s jump into why we think the Yakima Megawarrior or Loadwarrior should be at the top of your list…

thule 480 vs 480r


Installing a rack on your naked car roof can prove to be difficult and confusing if you don’t know what you’re doing.

These two-foot packs we’re reviewing today will make the process a little less complicated but will also ensure you won’t have to spend a small fortune down the road when your cheap footpacks break or fail.

The last thing you want to worry about is your Kayak flying off your roof while cruising down the highway doing 50mph.

Timberland White Ledge Vs Flume Review

timberland flume vs white ledge


Picking hiking boots can be tricky. Not everyone has the same criteria when they’re picking up their new pair of boots, and others who are new to hiking boots may not even know what to look for.

We’ve all been there.

Today we thought we’d do things a little differently.

Instead of comparing two boots that are mostly comparable to each other and about in the same budget range, we decided that we would take a look at one pair of boots that has a large “fan following” and another that is better suited for those who need a pair of boots to get them by for a few months.

Why did we do this?

Because we realize that not everyone can fork out a huge sum of money on a pair of boots. Especially if you’re living from paycheck to paycheck.

And since we realize that paying more upfront for quality is better said than done, we think this review might help you out if you’re stuck on a restrictive budget.

Danner Quarry Vs Rainforest? Which Boot Is The Best?

danner quarry vs rainforest

 

If you’re on the hunt for a new pair of work boots, your coworkers and family members may have mentioned picking up a pair of Danner boots.

Danner has a reputation for building high-quality boots that are dependable for everyday wear as well as suited for those demanding occupations like construction work, mechanics, electricians, forestry work, etc.

Today we’ve chosen to review the Danner Quarry and the Danner Rainforest boot; both boots have a solid reputation and are fairly similar to each other, so why not compare them?

Thule Force Vs Yakima Skybox: Rooftop Car Boxes Review

thule force vs yakima skybox rooftop car boxes


Traveling is already stressful without having to worry about how to strategically pack all of your family’s belongings into one cramped vehicle.

Aside from upgrading to a larger vehicle or renting a small tow trailer, there’s a much cheaper alternative that won’t affect your wallet in the long run and can save you the frustration and hassle of playing Tetris with suitcases and bags.

Today we’ll be looking at the Thule Force and Yakima Skybox rooftop car boxes.

We won’t go into the specifics of the sizes since the only key differences between all the models is, well, size.

That said, we’ve always suggested going for the next size up whenever you’re in doubt. So if you’re not sure if the medium will hold all those sleeping bags (and a few extras), maybe you should consider the next size up.

We’ll make it easier by listing the sizes and dimensions in a table below as well.

Bike racks make it possible to travel anywhere with your bike without having to break it down or stuff it into your vehicle.

Of course, you can’t just pick any bike rack and hope for the best. Well, you can, but you may end up disappointed. Or worse, find out that the rack won’t work for your particular bike.

For the purpose of this review, we’ll be talking about two highly rated rear mount racks: The Kuat NV 2.0 and the Sherpa 2.0. We liked both of them, but each are ideal under certain circumstances.

Keep reading to see which one will work best for you.

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 Cooler Reviews

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 Hiking Boots Reviews

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.

Keen Koven Vs Targhee: Hiking Shoe Review

keen koven vs targhee

 

Lightweight hiking shoes should fit you well and be very durable. You don’t want to step on something like a rock and have it pierce through your shoe or be very uncomfortable as you walk the trails.

You need a shoe that can provide you with miles and miles of tough wear. The shoes should be comfortable and waterproof, and they should fit within your budget.

As you consider whether to buy the Keen Koven or the Keen Targhee shoe, make sure you think about your particular hiking habits, whether you will wear them mostly around town or in the yard, and how much you have to spend on shoes.

Each of these shoes has received some mixed reviews, so you want to go and inspect the shoe yourself to be sure that they not only fit but that they meet your expectations for quality and price.

Helinox Cot One Vs Cot Lite

helinox cot one vs cot lite

 

A nice cot can mean a big difference in how you sleep if you are backpacking or just out for a weekend camping trip. Hard ground and cold weather don’t combine well to make for a good sleeping experience.

With a camping cot, however, you can enjoy your hike or camping experience so much more.

You will have a place to sit and even to store some of your gear underneath the cot, although don’t expect too much room as they are usually just a few inches off of the ground.

The Helinox Cot One and the Helinox Cot Lite are two popular cots to take with you when you are away from your warm bed for a few nights.

Compare these two cots with your budget, preferences, and particular camping or backpacking context. By looking at these two products side by side, you’ll be better able to make the right choice for you.
