Foot Comfort & Kentwool

Posted on March 25, 2014

If you've read any of the product descriptions we have on our Kentwool socks, you may have wondering how a sock could be that much better than any other sock. I wondered this as well...

So i grabbed a pair of the Women's Tour Profile golf socks and laced up my running shoes. Let not the fact that I own running shoes fool you, I actually loathe running. But I do listen to all the doctors who say it's good for you and keeps you skinny, so I run despite the hatred.

And I have to admit, I hated the run a little less in these socks! I usually talk myself into slowing to a walk somewhere around 2k, but this time I didn't have any pain in my feet to justify it so I pressed on. Since I run rather sporadically (in lieu of other exercises) my feet usually feel like I ran the next morning, but no pain there either!

 

These socks are marketed as golf socks because they're comfortable for walking all 18 holes, but they can work for any sport where you're on your feet, or even as casual socks.

Folbot: The Convertible Kayak

Posted on February 18, 2014

Folbot folding kayaks are unique because:

-They take up 75% less storage space than a typical kayak

-require no roof-rack

-easily assemble

-are made of a soft shell

but most importantly, there aren't any tradeoffs to owning a Folbot kayak rather than a hardshell boat!  

"A Folbot life is where you can be spontaneous, adventurous, or just simply more active.

Some History...

Folbot was created in 1933 by British national Jack Kissner. The boat quickly surpassed other prototypes of folding boats and even became the first to circumnavigate the UK.

-In 1935 Kissner moved the company to NYC then in 1953 to Charleston South Carolina, where it remains today. 

-In 1983 the company was bought by Phil Cotton and his partners, and they changed the make-up from wood to aluminum and composite materials.

                         

       An older wooden model          Today's model of aluminum and polycarbonate

 In 2004 the Cooper was created, and has rapidly become Folbot's most popular boat. 

With 10 boats in their line-up, Folbot continues to lead the way in versatility and adventure for kayaking and outdoor sport. These boats are the answer to adventurers with smaller vehicles and less desire to lug a boat long distances. With more than 80 years of experience, Folbot remains the new way to boat!

The Carryall You Actually Want to Be Seen In

Posted on January 27, 2014

There's no denying the convenience of a fanny pack. Whether exercising, traveling, or going about town it's an easy way to be hands free and have your amenities accessible. But there has to be some solution to the aesthetics of it.

designers have tried to make it work, but it ends up visually cutting the body in half.

 

even Leo DiCaprio couldn't pull it off!

 

So one woman decided to solve the carryall conundrum, and invent Quivvers!

Inspired by a quiver of arrows, the Quivver slings across the body to maximize movement, and carry what you need. 

Amy Barnum, created these for easy storage of the necessities: phone, money or ID, and she didn't slouch on style. They're water resistant and have pockets on both sides, for whatever print best suits you that day.

 

Quivvers are also connected with an "S-biner" to easily hook on more gear - keys, camera, water, bag or whatever else you need to keep close. Check out our video review below.
