Now Funding: The Quanta Vici heated wearables

For many of us, the temperatures have definitely turned towards the cooler. That means we’re pulling out the various layers to stay warm. Wool is where I tend to go most of the time, but there’s no doubt that some electrons (via the magic of resistive heating) can keep you toasty. That’s where a newer crowdfunding campaign – the Quanta Vici Smart Wearables.

Keep your feet warm (and stink free) with MP Merino Socks

I’ve reviewed a handful of different socks, and of course have plenty of other socks that I’ve picked up myself. By a large margin, the material that shows up the most in my socks is wool. It keeps my feet warm and comfortable, and they don’t stink due to the natural anti-microbial properties of wool. So, when MP Magic Socks reached out to see if I wanted to check out their wool socks, I quickly agreed.

For when it’s safe to head out, the Outdoor Vitals Satu Pants are ready

It was back at the end of 2018 when I went hands-on with the slimmest “puffy” jacket I had ever tried (which you can see here), which was my introduction to the great stuff Outdoor Vitals was producing. Just recently, they started up a campaign for a new garment perfect for when we can resume outdoor adventures – the Outdoor Vitals Satu Pants.

The Coalatree Switchback is ready to adventure travels

I’ve written a fair amount about Coalatree (seen here), and I’ve even spent some time with a pair of their comfortable and travel-ready Trailhead pants. They took their know-how from the coffee-derived hoodie and have a short-sleeved shirt ready for the warm weather, in the form of the Coalatree Switchback.

Give your toes some breathing room as you run with NimbleToes

If you’re thinking about getting into better shape, running – at least at first – seems like one of the easiest things to pick up. Just get a pair of running shoes on your feet, and off you go. Then, if you get serious about it, you realize that there’s a lot more that can go into shoe selection (it’s why stores will precisely measure your foot and check your stride to recommend things). What if you’ve embraced the “barefoot style” and want to run? There are a few brand that comes to mind (Xero and Vivo) but those tend to eschew the cushiony feel of running shoes. Enter NimbleToes.

Now you?re playing with power – if you?ve got the Tranzend Ultra Coat

While I can?t speak for all of you, here in Chicago we?re still definitely getting hit with tastes of winter (interspersed with some very spring-like weather). In fact, as I write this, we?ve got a winter storm on the way. That means I?ll have my heavier down coat in play, but if you don?t want the bulk, then something like the Tranzend Ultra Coat may be what you?re looking for.
