You know we’re big fans of barefoot shoes here at Terradrift. We love barefoot hiking boots, barefoot sandals, and barefoot shoes for daily wear. But one category we haven’t focused on yet is sustainable waterproof barefoot hiking boots for cool weather! So we did some digging, tested a few pairs in the cold and snow, and share what we think of them right here, right now.
Like gear? We do, too. Terradrift will bring you honest reviews and recommendations of our favorite gear, from camera accessories to outdoor equipment and everything in between.
When it comes to getting kitted for skiing and snowboarding, there may not be a more fun piece of gear or apparel to shop for than ski goggles. The strap patterns! The colors! The mirrored lenses! I mean, we love a solid insulated jacket, but if you know how passionate we are about sustainable sunglasses, it should come as no surprise that we’re almost as easily excited by sustainable ski goggles. So we did some digging to find a selection of more eco-friendly snowboard goggles, put them to the test, and are gonna let you know how they performed, how sustainable they are, what size faces they’re gonna work best for and more, right here, right now. So read on, and protect those peepers when you’re out on the snow.
If there’s one piece of gear or article of clothing that’s universally necessary come wintertime whether you’re hiking, skiing, or building a snowman in the backyard, it’s winter gloves or mittens. After all, fingers are delicate little appendages and need to be protected! But not all hand coverings are created equal, especially if you’re looking for options that are sustainable, vegan, and PFAS-free (read more about PFAS here). Fortunately, we found a bunch of delightfully cozy, sustainable winter gloves and mittens that are all of the above and more so you can gear up responsibly.
Protein is important. Especially for those of us who are active outdoorists, whether that means we’re into hiking, climbing, backpacking, kayaking, mountain biking or anything in between. Because getting optimal …
We’ve never been huge fans of Valentine’s Day here at Terradrift. Maybe because we’re not into all the sappy stuff. You know, chick flicks, hearts, roses, feelings… But that doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy an opportunity to gift someone we love some excellent outdoor gear! So if you’d rather not do the whole “chocolate and flowers” thing again (how boring!) here are 10 outdoorsy gifts for Valentine’s Day for him, her, and them.
Merrell recently released the new Merrell Trail Glove 7. But is it an improvement on the Merrell Trail Glove 6, which we reviewed a while back? We tested a pair to find out.
It’s a debate as old as time itself (ok, maybe just as old as modern DWR technology, but still, the debate rages): Shell vs insulated ski jacket. Which is better when it comes to winter sports? An insulated ski jacket? Or a non-insulated shell jacket? We break down the pros and cons of both and what each is best for (and which one is superior).
Not all day packs are created equal. But some daypacks are so similar to their competitors that when it comes time to purchase a new one, you’re not really sure …
A sturdy, dependable duffle is a beautiful thing. We compare two–the Patagonia Black Hole and the Cotopaxi Allpa–to see which is tops.
Barefoot shoes. We freaking love them here at Terradrift. And when it comes to barefoot shoes, we’ve tested a lot because I’m all in on the whole barefoot/minimalist shoe movement. …
