Wildland Staff's Favorite Travel Bags
Recently I was packing for a month-long trip overseas, and I was sure to take my go-to "extra" daypack - an Outdoor Research Dry Peak Bagger - for whatever adventures were to greet me on my journey. I love this bag because it's super lightweight, durable, completely waterproof and takes up no room whatsoever in my regular suitcase. I use it for all my roadtrips, active adventures and international travel too. It made me wonder what bags other avid travelers can't live without.  So I started my research with the Wildland staff and here's what they had to say: Kelsey, Wildland's Asia program director, can't live without her Longchamp purse. "The same one has been through over 12 countries and is my trustiest companion. Thick shoulder strap so you can sling it on one shoulder or across + difficult to cut. Lightweight but super surable nylon. Big enough to throw whatever you want...

A Seamless, Comprehensive Adventure to the End of the World

A Seamless, Comprehensive Adventure to the End of the World
This Wild couple came to us after having already purchased their tickets to Chile and Argentina. They had an idea of the places that they wanted to see and asked us to put it all together for them as a single, seamless, comprehensive adventure. Read on to hear their thoughts on El Calafate and Ushuaia in Patagonia as well as Buenos Aires, Uruguay and Easter Island.   “Friends used you in the past and when we had some thoughts about this potential trip and where to go and you nicely strung our destinations of interest together with excursions and accommodations. Easter Island was unique and all the Argentina venues were excellent and different. We had 4 main guides --Pilar in El Calafate, Jessica in Ushuaia, Ana in Buenos Aires and Lauda in Colonia, Uruguay. All were excellent, professional and well informed. Every place was so different and provided excellent opportunities to meet...

The Ultimate Women's Packing Guide for Southeast Asia Adventures

The Ultimate Women's Packing Guide for Southeast Asia Adventures
Southeast Asia is filled with breathtaking views, ancient temples and some of the friendliest people in the world. There are many great Southeast Asia adventures to be had in this culturally diverse area, so to maximize your enjoyment of these activities I’ve prepared a comprehensive packing list to help you prepare for this amazing experience. Travel skirts are a great way to stay comfortable and keep cool in the heat of the day; however, you need to be cautious with the length as many temples and other sites will not permit you to enter if your skirt is too short. Exofficio’s Go-To Stripe Skirt is quick drying, moisture wicking and even includes a hidden zippered pocket for your cash. This skirt is also modest in length, allowing you to wear it anywhere. I pair my skirt with the Techspressa Support Tank, which is also quick drying and has a built-in...

This Sombrero is too sexy for me!

This Sombrero is too sexy for me!
This is the third Seattle Sombrero I have owned… I lost the first two (orange and red) over the years and now it is my new blue sombrero that travels with me everywhere I go…. From my short bike rides to the grocery store to my multiday trips around Costa Rica, this sombrero and I are inseparable. Here in Costa Rica we have a long rainy season, even though it rains for only one hour or two a day, this rainy weather can extend from May to November. This classic Outdoor Research Seattle Sombrero is a must have to protect yourself from light rain to serious tropical downpours, there is no way your head won’t stay dry with this Sea Somb!. The hat comes in 4 sizes and 10 colors… I love all the fun color combinations Outdoor Research offers. Besides being waterproof, it is breathable and features brushed tricot interior...

I want to talk about my underwear

I want to talk about my underwear
This gear review has been a long time coming, for the past 4 years I've trusted ExOfficio GIVE-N-GO boxer briefs on every adventure I've been on. It honestly doesn't matter what type of adventure it is, I always make sure to pack my GIVE-N-GO boxer briefs. From camel rides in the Sahara to sleeping in snow dens in the backcountry of Montana, I know I've got a solid pair of underwear that will keep me dry and warm when it matters. More importantly, for the last half dozen international trips I have only packed 2-3 pairs of ExOfficio boxers for my entire trip. The beauty of these boxers is they are extremely quick drying, I am able to wash them at night in the shower and have a fresh pair of boxers in the morning. Plus, they are odor resistant with Aegis® Microbe Shield™ to eliminate odor-causing bacteria in fabric so I stay extra fresh on those...
