Gear Review: Salomon SLAB Ultra Trail Shoe

The SLAB Ultra is a maximum feature trail shoe by Salomon that is built to take on any trail and any distance. The SLAB Ultra is built on a stable platform with an 8mm drop, and provides two layers of underfoot protection with Profeel Film and a TPU insert. I have put close to 250 miles on this shoe and will share my thoughts in this review.

Gear Review: Salewa Ultra Train 2 Hiking Shoe

alewa’s Ultra Train 2 is a trail shoe specifically designed for speed hiking, fastpacking, and high alpine mountain training. The low-profile upper has a precise fit with a durable and protective outer shell. The protective 8mm drop midsole and aggressive Michelin compound outsole are carryovers from the original Ultra Train, which will be welcome news to those that enjoyed the original. I’ve been wear testing the Salewa’s Ultra Train 2 since they were released a few months ago, and will share my experience in this review.

Gear Review: Sony FE 50mm f/1.8 Lens

The Sony FE 50mm f/1.8 is the most affordable Sony lens available for full frame e-mount cameras. The Sony FE 50mm isn’t going to win any awards for build quality with it’s plastic construction, but I was pretty impressed with its performance and the images I was able to get during my months of testing. In this review I’ll provide my opinion of this lens as well as images samples.
