We’ll miss you!

Kyle Defoor on Mountain Khakis

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

In his role as MRE brand ambassador, Kyle Defoor produced a great video on why he wears Mountain Khakis. I have a few pairs as well and like Kyle, my first pair were the Mountain Utility model. They wear like iron. I’m also wearing a lot of Kuhl and Arc’teryx with two pairs of TAD Force 10s thrown in the mix as well as well. There are a lot of good pants out there and Kyle makes a compelling case as to how you can go all in on one brand. Mountain Khakis not only does pants. Based on my visit to their booth at last Outdoor Retailer, they are definitely worth a look for shirts and jackets as well. It might also get some of you jazzed up to know that MK is owned by Freedom Group who also owns Remington and its affiliate firearms companies.


Salomon 3D Mid GTX Ultra

Monday, April 12th, 2010

Salomon took their most popular Gore-tex lined trail shoe and adjusted the height to protect the ankle. They are lightweight yet keep your feet stable in scrub or on the trail. I have been wearing a pair for a week and appreciate the comfort as well as Salomon’s friction-free lace eyelets. You just pull on the laces and tuck the excess in the pocket.

XA Pro 3D Mid GTX

They are available in two color schemes, Black/Asphalt/Turf (shown) and Detroit/Black/X-Games which are mainly Grey with Orange accents. They will accept paint for those who need the extra camo. It is important to know that Salomons run a little small.

The best place to find the 3D Mid GTX Ultra is Blue Ridge Mountain Sports. As soon as they saw them, they laid in a good supply for units in the Tidewater of Virginia area. For those of you in Hampton Roads be sure to stop by Blue Ridge’s Hilltop store in Virginia Beach were there will be plenty on hand.
