Vasque Torre AT GTX Hiking Boot

The Vasque Torre AT is a modern, lightweight, technical hiking boot that is built for the outdoors – hiking, backpacking and everywhere else you want to go. Photo: Vasque Footwear.

The Vasque Torre AT is a modern, lightweight, technical hiking boot. Packed with a GORE-TEX waterproof lining, a mesh and suede leather upper that breathes well and advanced technology from Vibram Wavelength II outsoles providing lots of grip, this boot is built for the outdoors – hiking, backpacking and everywhere else you want to go.

The Torre AT hiking boots are surprisingly light, due to the fact that they are made with lightweight materials, which provides a responsive feel under heavy loads. The boots required a break-in period, though. The first hikes resulted in blisters, although as we continued to wear them, the blisters became increasingly less severe. This is a great boot when carrying big loads.

Smooth Operator Mid-Length Surfboard by Jack’s Surfboards

Jack’s Surfboards is renowned as the premier surf retailer. They started with one store in Huntington Beach, California and now offer the SMOOTH OPERATOR: a trim and turn machine, high volume with low rails. It has a 4+1 fin set up for various performance characteristics.

The SMOOTH OPERATOR by Lost is their modern twist on the classic mid-length double ender, inspired by their earlier boards like the ‘Lazy Toy’ and ‘EZ-UP’. These were forgiving and easy to ride, but not performance oriented. Their more recent Crowd Killer was an over inflated pump and rip stick with a hyper extended nose rocker and aggressive tail rocker, while the SMOOTH OPERATOR possesses effortless glide and horizontal trim.

Kari Traa Ane Hiking Pants

Hiking pants tend to be slightly more durable and abrasion-resistant than tights and leggings, often featuring more storage, water resistance, and UPF protection. We vote for pants during extended hiking trips and more rugged trails when scrambling over rocks is necessary.

The Kari Traa Ane Hiking Pants are a waterproof high-tech hiker with a casual look. An adjustable high waist secures the fit, while thigh and hand pockets provide extensive storage. Articulated knees and a gusseted crotch combine with four-way stretch fabric for unrestricted movement. Increase ventilation with strategically placed zippers. A leg zip opening makes for easy on and off over shoes and boots.
