Bentbrook tested the "indulgent" #ThermaRest Honcho Poncho to find out if it's fun or technical: http://bit.ly/1SE8QB0

Have you ever rented camping, kayaking, or ski gear for trips? Would you?

+GetOutfitted says it is "the Rent the Runway of softgoods and hardgoods for year-round outdoor recreation."

Sweet essay by Lee Woodruff on the red +Patagonia long johns husband Bob gave her as a wedding present and symbol of adventure. via +Real Simple
Lee Woodruff’s red long johns—a wedding present from her husband—went from a symbol of adventure to a sign of midlife stagnation… until one trip changed everything.

"Spend the money for the good boots, and wear them forever," says Sketch Guy in +The New York Times.

Same for the ski pants and flip-flops.
The cheaper, lower-quality item can be a bad deal if you’ll have to replace it several times before the more expensive, higher-quality one would wear out.

Definitely. I expect a pair of boots to last at least 1500 to 2000 km, or over 1000 miles over the pond. Even good running shoes last me over 1000km. ShoeGoo and duct tape are your friends.

Yup, that's nearly 50 bucks for a mug.

Find out if TJ, a " committed coffee drinker," thought it was worth it in his review of the +Snow Peak Ti-Double 450 Cup:
