Saola Shoes Cannon | ReddyYeti Gear Review

Saola Shoes Logo

Saola Shoes Cannon:

With the Textile industry being the world’s second largest polluter it’s no wonder that Saola Shoes has taken such an aggressive step towards creating sustainable footwear and we are PSYCHED the way the Cannon turned out. Their take on the casual street sneaker hits the nail on the head in terms of style offering a variety of color schemes to cater to your style. Not only are the Saola Cannons easy on the eyes, they’re also super lightweight, comfortable, and eco-friendly shoes for everyday adventures.

What we’re stoked about:

  • Ultra lightweight, flexible, and comfortable as hell

  • Uppers made from 100% recycled PET from plastic bottles giving the look and feel of suede and made from 3-4 recycled plastic bottles.

  • Insoles + soles made from an algae foam. By harvesting excess algae biomass from freshwater ways, freshwater systems are subjected to better water flow to natural ecosystems while utilizing a less harmful and sustainable resource.

  • Algae based outsole is surprisingly lightweight, so they’re easy to wear and easy to pack. Rubber panels at high-contact points assure long-lasting durability.

  • Algae foam + cork insoles provide comfortable cushion (and removable if you have other insole needs).

  • Laces made from organic cotton.

Asana Sidekick Crash Pad + Pro Spotter Pad | ReddyYeti Gear Review

Asana Sidekick Crash Pad + Pro Spotter Pad | ReddyYeti Gear Review

Sidekick Crash Pad:

The Sidekick pad is the perfect starter or add-on pad to any of the other Asana Crash Pads! There is no such thing as too much padding when bouldering and having that extra cushion will only add safety to your sessions. This pad is a boiled-down simplified version of Asana's other pads. The foam structure handles, and bomber cover construction is still the same but, removed the flaps and padding on the shoulder straps have been removed. Asana's goal is to add a cheaper less complicated option to boost the effectiveness of some of their more complex models allowing you to add square footage and thickness to your landing zone for less.


Pro Spotter Pad:

This multifunctional bad boy is bringing a lot more to the table than the average supplemental pad. At a glance, it’s a sit-start pad and the finest of it’s kind at that. Beyond that, it can be used as a spotter shield to provide better air control to help your partner land on the crash pad in the event of any falls. But, that’s just the tip of the iceberg, as the pad can unzip to reveal a "pile pad" which eliminates gaps in crashpads to prevent torqued ankles and prevent gaps in your crash pad pile. Lastly, this pad when folded one time in half down the long seam functions as a comfortable sleeping pad that’s perfect for overnight climbing sessions.

Butora Acro | ReddyYeti Gear Review

The Acros is an extremely comfortable down-camber climbing shoe best suited for steep sport climbing and bouldering. With it's larger toe box, toe-hooks are a breeze while it's reinforced heel cup provides plenty of support while heel hooking, as well. The Acro is made up of a mix of leather and synthetic padding which offers a little more flexibility than your average shoe while offering ample stability. Though the Acro is not Butora's only wide option, having that choice available is a breath of fresh air, especially for those with a wider foot. We were blown away by the performance and feel of this shoe from the get-go.

Four of the best day hiking backpacks for the next time you hit the trail

Four of the best day hiking backpacks for the next time you hit the trail

Four of the best day hiking backpacks for the next time you hit the trail:So you’ve decided to start hiking. You have the snacks, the rain jacket, the water bottle and first aid supplies. Now you just need a place to store all your supplies on your adventures.

The wide range of available bags can seem intimidating. While some daypacks are less than 20 liters in capacity, it’s better to go with something between 20 and 30 liters so you have a little more space to carry extra snacks or jackets on longer hikes. Daypacks also make great carry-on bags for plane trips or work bags for the bike commuter.

The best winter sleeping bags for every situation

The best winter sleeping bags for every situation

The best winter sleeping bags for every situation: The leaves are changing to gold, morning dew has turned to morning frost and your summer sleeping bag isn’t protecting you from the chill anymore.

The question of what kind of bag to buy, though, is not just seasonal. Whether you want down insulation—better warmth for weight ration—or synthetic filling, which is cheaper and hardier, is a perennial consideration. Full zip, mummy bags, or full hood are all things you should consider for keeping you warm in the cold months.
