Counting Kate’s Sheep at a Remote New Zealand Station with Icebreaker

A herd of merino sheep crowded one side of the road - a confused mass punctuated by random bleating. With calm confidence, two young flannel-clad shepherds on horseback guided the animals away from the dusty track. If a sheep strayed, a shepherd whistled, and sheepdogs pounced, bringing the wanderer back in line. The scene is out of a Western, but instead of a desert, we were hemmed in by the mountains surrounding Mt Nicholas Station in a secluded region of Queenstown, New Zealand. I jumped out of the boxy Land Rover to watch, pulling on my Tech Trainer jacket to

In the Cradle of Cycling: Touring Castelli’s Italian headquarters and riding the nearby Dolomites

I’m travelling to the Mecca of cycling, Fonzaso, in Italy’s Belluno province. I survey the rolling landscape from our van window as Monte Grappa beckons in the distance, a reminder of the history this part of the Venetian Prealps contains. Even better, I’ll be in the hands of Castelli, the cycling brand of all cycling brands. As a lifelong enthusiast, this trip is hard to grasp - but I’m buzzing and can’t wait to get out and begin exploring. We arrive at the villa we’ll be calling home, and I quickly realize my accommodation isn't an ordinary layover. It’s placed

A Weekend in the Life of Kari Traa

Head to Norway to live a journey in the life of Kari Traa, the brand and the founder.

I arrived at Oslo and was greeted by smiling members of Kari Traa’s team waving Norwegian flags. Already, I was seeing the warm Kari Traa team spirit. Discover Kari Traa The team took

The Fjällräven Classic: Conquering the King’s Road

“Our mission is to inspire the world to discover and to walk within nature. We believe strongly it will make a saner future for everyone. And we have our experience and our passion for nature to guide us.''  -Martin Axelhed, President of Fjällräven The Classic hike was created by Ake Nordin, founder of Fjällräven, to celebrate the Scandinavian concept of friluftsliv, life in the outdoors. In 1970, the company started this weeklong outdoor hike, lending equipment and explaining how to use it. Forty years later, I am invited on the very same hike in Northern Sweden, continuing this splendid tradition.

The North Face Conservation Efforts

With the state of the planet today and growing climate concerns,  brands like The North Face and many others, are beginning to take matters into their own hands. When it comes to the outdoor industry, conserving the environment is a big part of the business. From adjusting company manufacturing policies and routines to sharing knowledge with loyal customers, protecting the playground that we all play in is a serious topic. In order to do their part in conserving the nature that we admire and appreciate, The North Face has made a few company changes in hopes to lessen their impact on the
