Sometimes, thermal mugs can look goofy or out of place in the real world. The new Avex ReCharge thermal mug keeps your drinks at the right temperature and looks good while doing it. But any insulated mug can keep your drink hot/cold. What's so great about this one? The Avex ReCharge thermal mug features a nifty, leak-proof design called AUTOSEAL that actually works to prevent leaks of your precious fluids.
Sean is a picky backpack tester, like really picky. He was searching for a day pack that was around 30 liters, had a nice amount of features - such as multiple pockets, side water sleeves, hip pockets, adjustability - and a good back panel that allowed for structure and breathability. So he found himself with the Boreas Muir Woods 30. It has been reviewed by others but he needed to get his hands (and back) into it and see if it was Engearment-worthy.
Headlamps are a staple of the outdoors. They come in all shapes and sizes, but for the most part, you have a small boxy thing strapped to your head. It'll have a button or two, a few LEDs in both red and white, and some batteries inside. Some do a slightly better job of sucking juice out of the batteries more efficiently, leading to brighter lighting or better run time. One of the buttons usually turns the headlamp on. The second switches between modes and brightness levels. But that second button - doesn't it sort of defeat the purpose of hands-free lighting?
A couple of years ago, Sierra Designs flipped their entire line of products on its head. They were in a bit of a rut - heavy packs with no innovative features, boring tents (ed.: Except the Tengu! We love you, Tengu!), uninspired sleeping bags and outerwear. Within the past two years, they've introduced industry-leading light weight tents and innovative sleeping bags like their Backcountry Bed. The Sierra Designs Convert 2 and Convert 3 4-season tents look to be the pinnacle of that shakeup.
Let’s do a thought experiment for a moment. What if your tent did everything a tent was supposed to do – in fact, did it better than most tents – without any poles? Well, we have good news and bad news. The good news is, such a tent exists: the NEMO Equipment Morpho 2p has been around for ten years. Of course, we wouldn’t have mentioned good news without a bad news chaser: you won’t be able to buy it after this season. Click through to learn more.
You're looking for a lightweight backpacking tent for you you and up to two other people. Maybe you're a couple with and a dog or two. There are many great options out there, but none offer the amount of livable space that the NEMO Equipment Losi 3p does.

There are certain pieces of gear that come with us no matter what the occasion. Sometimes it's not the same particular item, but rather a category. Those are the best ones, because we get to have multiples stashed wherever we may need them (and our significant others get to say, "another one?" when we add to the collection). One of our favorites, here at Engearment, is the humble knife.
We're back from SIA Snow Show 2015! And boy did we see some cool stuff. The industry is innovating with new materials and designs, taking winter sports to the next level. We're going to cover softgoods and gadgets in this post. It will be photo-intensive. We'll have more posts later this week to talk about snowboards and splitboards.
We're far from done with the snow here at Engearment (You hear that, Ullr?), but we know some of your minds are already dreaming of warmer days and the activities that come with them. Our summer jaunts range from backpacking trips into the wilderness to gathering friends around a fire at a campsite off a dirt road for drinks, s'mores, and sausage-stealing dog shenanigans. We understand that not everyone is going to enjoy sleeping on the ground. For those who want to bring a real bed along, but want something with classy looks and low weight that will work with any vehicle's towing limits, we introduce you to the Hütte Hut by Sprouting Sprocket Studios.
