In Review: Biolite HeadLamp 330

While we’re slowly inching towards more hours of daylight, for those of you going out for runs either before or after work, you’re no doubt running into, well, a lack of daylight. I’ve been doing the same here, and was interested to see how the Biolite HeadLamp 330 worked out on the trail.

Get paddling with the Oru Origami Kayak

A few days ago, we brought you some options for camping in cold weather. Well, what about for when things warm up (or you live in a warmer climate)? Then you might be thinking about hitting the water. Usually, that means you need a bit of storage space for a boat, even a small kayak. With something like the Oru Origami Kayak line, however, storage space becomes much less of a concern.

Here’s some gear for the cold weather outdoors

Often, when it’s cold out, we just want to stay in. But we’ve also been staying in for a year now, so you might want to get out there and get some fresh air. If it’s more than a walk around the block, you might want some gear to, say, go camping. Yes, a lot of your warm weather gear will still work, but there are three items we’ve got here you might want to add in.

Now Funding: Trekka Element Jacket

Whenever I’m considering what gear – and specifically, what clothing – to bring on a camping trip, one big consideration is “will this melt if it gets an ember on it?” That’s the issue with synthetic materials – while they can be breathable and waterproof, they’ll not stand up to heat. That is, until this Trekka Element Jacket hit Kickstarter.

Keeping toasty with the Biolite FirePit

Yes, that’s right – after finding out the FirePit was a think when I reviewed the BioLite Camp Stove (seen here), and then writing about new FirePit accessories (here), I’ve finally gotten to do what I wanted to since I first saw it – got to kick back and relax next to the Biolite Firepit in my own backyard.

The BioLite FirePit – now accesorized!

If you recall, over the summer, we went hands-on with the BioLite Camp Stove (seen here). I came away impressed with the little stove (and the gadgety goodness it brought to the mix). Well, if you’re thinking you want that tech, but supersized, they’ve got you covered. The BioLite FirePit has been around a bit (and looks pretty cool in my opinion), and today’s news extends it’s capabilities.

Backyard get-together? The High Camp Firelight 750 can bring your spirits in style

In these weird pandemic days, we seem to be seeking out any way we can (safely) get together. In the pleasant summertime evenings, that no doubt takes the form of a backyard gathering. While your cooler of suds works, what if you want to bring some stronger libations? That trusty camping hip flask isn’t up to the task. The High Camp Firelight 750? It is definitely up to the task!

Doing some backyard cooking with the BioLite CampStove 2

If you recall, back in April we told you about a new carbon-neutral BioLite CampStove 2 bundle (right here). As I mentioned in that article, we had a sample coming in for review. And while the lockdowns prevented us from going camping (so far), I did take this through some paces in our backyard, just to get an idea of how the BioLite CampStove 2 works.
