I’m excited to annouce I will be an official brand ambassador with one of my favorite makers of gear. Topo Designs in Colorado. Useful stuff for folks such as myself that split their time between the City, the Mountains, and the Sea. Proudly made in the USA. More to come.
Santa Cruz bro Garrett Kautz has been a busy dude. With a new baby as well as a growing business in Santa Cruz. He has custom made me some great camera bags for both my Hasselblad and my Polaroid SX-70… using duck canvas and vintage deadstock military finds. Recently he has made another run of American made 4 season wool socks. These can be used for your favorite endeavor (hiking, biking, surf checking, lurking, etc). I use these both for exploring the California backcountry as well as drinking a pint at the Outerlands. Support the bros.
Check out his durable goods and socks here. All photos courtesy of Strawfoot Handmade.
I am now curating a Flipboard magazine for those that use the popular iPad/iPhone app. Select content from this blog, gear plugs, photography, stories about the sea, the woods, and the mountains. Check it out.
