The Hitcase

I’m always searching for an affordable phone case that doesn’t interfere with what I want my phone to do and sound quality. A few months ago I was contacted by Hitcase and offered a phone case for review (and giveaway). Hitcase has the goal to provide mobile phone cases tough enough for the outdoor adventurer. […]

Onya Hipster Bag

Last summer Onya sponsored our #takeahike challenge and offered me one of their Hipster Bags. It’s essentially a little pouch that slides onto the waist belt of a baby carrier. Since my 3-year-old prefers to walk over being carried these days (yesss!!!) and I’m a loyal and true fan of the Ribz frontpack I happily offered […]

Skhoop Long Down Hoodie

Over the past two years Skhoop has become one of my favorite brands for cold weather clothing. I love Skhoop down skirts, I practically live in them and often throw them over leggings (and even jeans) when I run errands around town or play outside with my kids. I love my Skhoop puffy jacket because it’s […]

Armaskin Anti-Blister Sock Liners

Last summer Armaskin sent Helina, Lucy & Tina a few pairs of their anti-blister sock liners for testing and review. The concept of this sock liner is unique, it is semi-adhesive or “sticky” on the inside while the outside of the sock is smooth fabric to reduce friction. The concept intrigued me. I had read a […]

Work up a sweat, and you’ll feel the cooling effect […]

Wool-it Works Magic Against Blisters

I hate blisters. And I like magic products that aid in blister prevention. When Wool-It, a company based out of New Zealand, contact me last summer about their product I knew that I had to get it into the hands of a few good Hike Like A Woman Ambassadors for testing and review. Michelle & […]

Gear We’re Testing

Gear. We all use it. But I have to be honest. Sometimes when it comes to testing gear and writing gear reviews I have a hard time distancing myself from the products and brands that we have relationships with to give good, honest reviews and constructive advice on how to make products better. It was […]

Moji Mini Pro Massager

Gear Review: Moji Mini Pro Massager @hikelikeawoman #gearreview Click To Tweet Earlier this summer I found myself with some leftover gear from our #takeahike challenge this summer. I had an extra Moji Mini Pro Massager laying around the office and thought it’d be great to get it into the hands of one of our Ambassadors […]

Sunday Afternoons Hats For The Whole Family!

Earlier this spring I exchanged a few messages with Sunday Afternoons, a family business with a great startup story.  I’d never heard of Sunday Afternoons but the next thing I knew they were asking for the head circumferences of me and my kiddos. Soon a shipment landed smack dab on my front porch. The company […]

Vargo Titanium Hexagon Wood Stove (Gear Review)

I’m at that phase in my life where I prefer backpacking but it seems like I do more car camping these days. I think that it’s safe to say that I can blame it on my kids, camping is just so much easier than trying to take them backpacking. But, that doesn’t mean that I’ve given […]

How to plan a gear swag @hikelikeawoman #gear #tradinggear #outdoors Click To Tweet Do you ever feel like you’re drowning in gear? For most of us this would be awesome, right? But there really can be such as thing as too much gear. If you add growing kids into the mix it can get a […]

L. L. Bean Polartec Power Stretch Hoodie (Gear Review)

I’ll confess that for the past year I’ve worn this hoodie almost every day. You know that old beloved hoodie that you have from college? Well, my college hoodie has been replaced with this L.L. Bean Polartec Power Stretch Hoodie because it is functional, stylish and I love being able to zip it on and […]

Dirty Girl Gaiters (Gear Review)

I’m a hiking boot kinda girl. But a lot of times I find myself meandering my way down an old logging road, or easy wide dirt trail with my kids and in a situation where I don’t really need the extra support or stability of a boot. The past few years I’ve been hiking a […]

Rheos Atlantic Sky Sunglasses {Gear Review}

When Rheos sent me a pair of sunglasses to test and review and then pitched in another pair for our Hike 2015 Challenge I wasn’t sure if I’d like them or not. To be honest when it comes to sunglasses I’m more into an athletic frame and a good pair of shades that I can […]

La Sportiva Thunder III Boots {Gear Review}

You might like to hike in running shoes, or hiking shoes or even Chacos but, for the most part, I’m a boot girl. 75% of the time I’m hiking in boots. I love the stability and ankle support of a boot, especially if I’m packing heavy loads (i.e. children) up and down mountains. A few […]

Asolo TPS 520 GV Hiking Boots {Gear Review}

I don’t really think you can judge a boot until you’ve spent hundreds of miles together. The boot needs to be tested in the mud, in the snow, on a talus slope. On ascents and descents. On gentle easy dirt trails and lung-busting summit attempts. Some hikers scoff at the notion of wearing a sturdy […]

Outdoor Research Women’s Oasis Sombrero {Gear Review}

I have a confession. I prefer my hair pushed back out of my face with a Buff and a nice pair of sunglasses to a wide-brimmed hat. In fact, I don’t like sombrero type hats. They just aren’t my style. But, wrinkles aren’t my style either and I’m not completely satisfied with my skin. It […]

North Face Women’s Paramount II Convertible Pant {Gear Review}

Confession: I’m yet to find the perfect pair of hiking pants, but that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped searching. Right now there are 8 pairs of hiking pants in my closet. I’ve tried every style, every brand and something is always wrong. They are too short, or to high-waisted, the pockets aren’t perfect or they just […]

Deuce of Spades {Gear Review}

I hike with my kids (ages 2 & 4) a lot. At least 3 times per week but usually more like 5-6 days a week in the summer. This means that I dig a cathole for one of my children at least once a week. I don’t know what it is, but my kids never […]

Rheos Sunglasses {Giveaway}

One of the things I love the most about the outdoor community is when a gear or apparel company contacts me looking to partner. We had a blast partnering with JWalking Designs for our launch last month. Last week I was contacted by Rheos, they are an American outdoor company and right now they are selling some […]

Essential Gear For the Outdoor Mom

I’m a sucker for a new piece of gear BUT there’s just something about an old piece of gear that is full of memories and completely reliable no matter how much use and abuse it goes through. Since we hike and write trail guides I put my gear through fair amount of abuse on a regular basis, […]
