Minipresso GR and Minipresso Kit Review

  Bottom Line: A compact unit that makes excellent espresso on the go. Small enough to bring camping or even on hiking day trips. Pulls a shot of espresso that actually tastes like true espresso.

Observations: I became aware of this unit a few months back when I saw a friend using his on an adventure. I’m always...

I noticed the word “G-1000” on one of the cargo pockets almost...

Mountain Hardwear Scrambler RT 35 Outdry Backpack Review

Bottom Line: A light, versatile and durable backpack that’s, more importantly, waterproof! Perfect for anything from rock climbing, ice climbing, skiing, hiking… etc. Observations: Two years ago we tested the Scrambler 30 Outdry pack. You can see our review of that here: Scrambler 30 Outdry Pack Review. Back then one of my main concerns with that backpack was the lack of a roll-top closure. The main compartment was...
