Ahnu Montara Vs Sugarpine Boot Review

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.

Thule Sidearm Vs Yakima Frontloader Review

With all the bike racks available, it can be difficult picking the right one.
And with your bikes possibly being one of your biggest investments the pressure is on.

You don’t want that and neither do we. So that’s why we’re comparing two popular bike racks that will help you get on the road faster without having to wade through all the different choices.

Thule Force Vs Yakima Skybox Rooftop Car Boxes Review

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.

Difference Between Maxpedition Falcon 2 and 3

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.
