7 Top-Notch & Best Rain Poncho for 2018 Reviewed

Coming from a semi-nomad family, wondering the world is practically written in my DNA. I have checked outdoor camping, long rucksack mountain hikes, climbing, city tours and countryside bike rides off my “must do list“.

Packing and unpacking is a matter of minutes for me because I always travel light. Plus, I take only items that have multiple uses. Thus, although “chique”, my umbrella stays at home. To avoid getting soaked or beaten by the wind, my best rain poncho comes with me all the time.

I have also used it instead of a picnic blanket, to get shelter from the sun or to cover my sleeping bag. I even turned it into a small tent when my friends and I lost our midnight train to Ljubljana (that’s in Slovenia) and we had to rest under the summer sky.

A diva-like mantle is not quite suitable while exploring new places unless you are on a shopping spree in New York, Paris or any other fancy metropolis. What you need is something that looks good on you but it also durable, waterproof and has a hood.

Since dedicated excursionists help each other all the time, we have hit the stores, looked for the highest rated trip cloaks and made a complete review for you.

The 9 Best Hiking Underwear for Men and Women

It is an interesting thought to contemplate our ancestors never walked. In the absence of roads, pavements and polished cities they hiked to reach the nearest water supply, or join forces holding spears around a mouthwatering deer. Hiking, though, goes far beyond our ancestral needs and reaches into the very core of our undying need to connect with nature. Now, the idea of breathing in the magnanimity of a clear sky at the trail of Montana’s Rocky Mountains can easily turn toxic if you are unprepared. And, when it comes to planning a long journey hiking underwear, for some reason, are delegated into an afterthought.

Most adventurers tend to empty their wallets on footwear, slick carbon filtering water bottles, multi-purpose tools which can fix a latte, and shy away from spending money on hiking underwear. However, something that comes into direct contact with your skin should earn thoughtful consideration. Why is that?

The Best For Camping: Hammocks With Bug Nets -Ultimate Guide

If you are a real outdoorsy person, you know what it’s like to be out camping or hiking and to be swarmed with mosquitoes and other tiny insects. They can get in your hair and your mouth if it’s bad enough, and forget sleeping. They get inside your tent and you end up with that one mosquito that constantly flies around your head, yet you just can’t seem to kill it. You end up sleeping badly, or not at all. It’s worse if you are sleeping in a hammock, open to the sky and of course, all the bugs. There has to be a good solution.

Now, you can buy a hammock and add a mosquito net, but they won’t keep out all the bugs. There will always be gaps and you can pretty much guarantee that at least one mosquito will find his way in, and he’s going to bring his friends. That’s where these hammocks come in. They keep you up off the ground so you don’t have to worry about ants climbing in and they have really great nets attached to help keep out all the flying pests. You can sleep comfortably, have lots of room to move around, and you won’t have to swat away any bugs. These hammocks look good and come in a variety of colors. A few of them are even available as either single size or double size, so if you need the extra room you would have it. Keep reading for our complete review of the best hammocks with mosquito nets attached that are on the market today.
