24 Hours of Testing – TomTom, Tailwind, Icebug, Drywear, & More!

By |April 7th, 2017|

I've rarely ever had a big issue with jumping into the fire with new gear, if it works as anticipated and I don't have to think about it at all it's a win.

During the 24 Hour Terrain Relay, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to test the following gear:

Gear Review – Fit Shit Compression Socks

By |December 27th, 2016|

That was essentially the conversation before I received a pair of the Fit Shit compression socks. I’ll be honest, I’m one of the most skeptical people you’re going to meet. When I see any kind of fitness gadget, gear or special medically infused spiritual copper compression gear… I tend to call bullhockey and ask for empirical evidence to support claims. Compression gear is full of those claims.

By |August 16th, 2016|

Wearing a dryrobe is like being hugged by a Care Bear, it is like walking around in your sleeping bag…and it’s awesome. The dryrobe, which you may have seen as a sponsor on BattleFrog College Championships, at OCR World Championships or at the uphill swim based OCR Neptune Steps, has made a big splash in the OCR world and for a good reason.

Zeal: OCR Weapon.

By |February 10th, 2015|

I've been testing the Icebug Zeal since December 3, and after a month or so of only seeing photos I was really excited to get my feet into 'em. I'll use the term "into" quite literally, as the radical midsole design envelops most of your foot, designed for lateral stability and an overall low 6mm drop from heel to toe.
