  • Sierra Designs Wicked Hot 45 sleeping bag

    It's Earth Day, time to remember that green is not just a color for seasick puppies, St. Patrick's Day beer or that stuff in the back of your fridge. It's how companies like Sierra Designs are approaching gear design, and if you're sleeping with Mother Earth you darn well ought to be looking at an…

  • Mountain Hardwear Nitrous jacket

    Let's say, just for the sake of argument, that you are a man and you are in the doghouse. I mean you really screwed the pooch this time, bro.

  • Mountainsmith Recycled Day lumbar pack

    Mountainsmith has forced me to add a new category to GearFlogger: Green. Not as in jolly toking giants, but as in recycled. Mountainsmith’s Recycled Day lumbar pack uses 25 plastic bottles (!) in its construction. Kudos to Mountainsmith for doing something with all my old malt liquor empties.
