Tested: Shimano CM-1000 Sports Camera

When Shimano joined the largely GoPro-dominated wearable camera market in 2014 with their Shimano CM-1000 Sports Camera, I don’t think I was alone in being skeptical as to whether or not the camera could compete. Afterall, this is a camera that for all intensive purposes is designed to appeal to, and work well for, both fisherman and cyclists; two sports


Tested: Shimano SH-M200 Trail Shoe

Jun 02, 2015

The timing could not have been better for Shimano to send me their new M200 trail shoe. I’ve had a great run with a decade old pair of original Shimano DX shoes, which I love so much I’ve glued bits of the sole back on several times.

Teva Links Mid Review

Nov 12, 2012

In my high-school the hippies that weren’t wearing Birkenstocks were wearing Tevas. And it can’t be helped; to this day, when I think of Teva, I still think of thse rubber-soled, webbing sandals. But they’ve come a long way since then. And no shoe company ever sponsored anyone for reeking of patchouli or going to Phish shows. Teva (that’s “teh’-vah,”
