I’ve acquired a lot of gear…A LOT! Looking over my gear that was purchased over the course of this summer, I asked myself, If I had to pick one or two pieces of gear that directly influenced me to spend more time outdoors, what would it be? I’ll be honest I get a decent amount of gear for the Loadout Room to test and evaluate, but the two pieces of gear I’ve chosen, I personally purchased which gives me a little more incentive to use it more frequently.
Being that I enjoy running, the two items are for that purpose but have been used in other capacities as well. Those two are my Salomon Sense Marin Trail Running Shoes and my Garmin Fenix 5 multi-sport watch. The shoes have held up great for both trail running and normal running. The Salomons have a great fit and are durable. The Garmin Fenix 5 has to be one of the best investments in gear that I’ve made in a while. I’ve been super impressed with the watches functionality and durability. For a better look at the Fenix 5, take a look at my article on the Garmin Fenix 5 Multi-Sport watch.
