Non-ordinary Insulated Jacket. This jacket provides a better insulation than any other jacket can offer from my opinion. I owned Arc’teryx Alpha LT. It is really light and it’s good for cold weather like in California. The regular Arc’teryx Alpha LT is able to absorb cold weather from 60-50f. But it is a different story with Arc’teryx LEAF Cold WX Jacket. The jacket can absorb cold weather below 50f just fine.
2nd of all the jacket provides patches panel on left and right sleeve. I’m considering myself a patches collector and this is a plus point for Arc’teryx jacket to provide an insulated jacket with the patch panel on left and right of the sleeve. And one last thing why I chose this model, is because on the front of the jacket it still showing the Arc’teryx letter with the logo its own. I feel that one day that Arc’teryx will shift their idea to not having the Arc’teryx letter on the front of the jacket anymore and instead of a letter it will be replaced with its own Arc’teryx logo only. So might as well to have this model from now on or extra unit to put into a collection.
If you ask how warm this jacket can be? oh it is warm and can be really warm. It’s puffy, and when you wear it the jacket is ready to warm your body from the cold weather.
So I’m happy with this jacket and I’m going to use for cold weather purpose and it will be my next to go traveling jacket for cold weather destination.
I will provide more pictures below. Enjoy !!

I decided to get a new camera backpack, and it was my first pack from Peak Design. My first thought when I saw this backpack, the design was okay. It’s neat and well built but it’s not my kind of backpack. I’m always into with military backpack. But I decided to try this backpack from PD. I ordered and received before Christmas 2016. Since I received my 5d mark IV. I’m planning to get a new case for this camera from Peak Design backpack. It fits perfect for my 5d mark IV with 14mm lens attached to the camera body. I also added my 13 inch macbook pro to into this backpack and also another accessories such as 50mm 1.8 for my 5d mark IV. Last but not least I have my smartphone 3 axis gimbal from Zhiyun, Zhiyun Smooth. I put all of them into this Everyday Backpack 20L. I’m surprised it fits well and not too squishy at all, and it still has extra space too for my power cable, mobile battery, portable wifi.
I’m curious on how durable and how strong is this backpack. So I decided to carry this backpack to japan with me. Turns out, this backpack shows the most out of it when it comes to performance. This backpack made my travel become much easier, on the back of the pack it has a small space that you can attach the backpack onto your hand carry luggage handle. This is a plus point for me because I don’t think any other brand of camera backpack offers this feature for people who like to take a picture while traveling.
I love this backpack cause it makes my daily routine become easier and much simple. But it came with a price which it’s not cheap at all. This backpack cost you around $259 if I’m not mistaken after tax and free shipping.
Last week I went hike to this place called cucamonga peak. The view was very nice. But something that you have to sacrifice was your energy. This is not an easy hike, the trail was steep and the altitude was around 2500-4000 if I’m not mistaken. I brought my 3L hydration bladder, and rock on with my salomon gtx 3d. The trail was 12 miles round trip. And it took 7 hours to finish the hike round trip. Luckily I got a chance to snap some footage of our hike to Cucamonga Peak.

I want to share this with you all. I never into with any morale patches ever. And yes I do collect them. But recently I felt in love with these patches. Thanks to my fellow friend who introduce me to one his collector buddies and letting me have these. These are the rarest patches you’ll ever see worldwide.
Who says hero 4 is always the best for action camera? Yes I agree that hero 4 is a pioneer for the action camera from my opinion. And let me introduce to you, a $80 action camera that has a better quality from my perspective compare to hero 4 silver and black in 1080p. This all pure recorded with my xiaomi yi. Which one you will pick, $399 hero 4 silver or $80 Xiaomi Yi?
I went back from Yosemite last week. It was Thursday night, the day before I start my road trip. I had no clue what should I prepare or what should I bring, since this is my first time for this road trip. 5 hours of driving and accompanied by my friend and with John Mayer’s Album. I made it time to visit Glacier Point and the view was a breath taking. Also the people here, they’re all cool and laidback to us. Hard to describe what’s in here, since I’m quite speechless too when I was there. Well, I think the video will explain to you more than just words. Enjoy !!
Not much to say about these pack. But I love it from top lid of the pack to bottom. And don’t ask about the quality of this pack. Two thumbs up and hands down. The Foliage Green is Dragon Slayer and for the coyote Brown, that’s a Skiritai Pack. I use my dragon slayer for a short hike, and travel to a short distance miles. The skiritai is a little bit bigger. My option that time, either should I go with Skiritai or with S.A.T.L. But I guess since this is the last piece of skiritai, it might be a good idea for me to put this pack on my cabinet. When I wore this pack, the BVS support system is spectacular, and I’m surprisingly happy with it. Especially the NICE Frame that comes with this pack, that you can detach the shoulder strap or the yoke system and turn the strap a little bit bigger. So the pack itself will be able to carry more stuff in between of the yoke system and the backpack.
If you’re into with hiking, travelling and looking to get a bigger pack. I would suggest you should try with either Dragon Slayer or Komodo Dragon from Mystery Ranch. Those are the two style packs that I would suggest you to get one for a long term use.
Christmas present from someone is here. If I may ask, do you care about what shoes, and what kind of shoes that you’re going to use for hike? Maybe some of you and many people we’ve seen don’t matter with using running shoes for hike. I’m never thought that I’ll be having a hiking shoes till I read some article about Salomon GTX. So what’s the good about this shoes?
This is my first time that I’m having Salomon GTX Xa Pro Ultra 2 Trail. At first I thought it’s just gonna be the same shoes like running shoes, such as Nike Free Run Series. Well, sadly it’s far beyond from my expectation. This shoes has a great sole for your feet to walk long hours forth and back. And it has front thick sole that is ready to cover your toes. The inner sole, the moment when you’re standing and walking, this shoes has a comfort padding that enough to protect the surface of your feet.
Nevertheless, the reason why I’m picking Salomon is because Salomon is trusted by TIER 1 Operators from it’s quality, and the durability. However, when I had this thought about getting this shoes, I’m thinking why I wanna get this shoes since I can get another Nike shoes to run, and maybe for a short hike. But I decided to get this shoes for my hiking gear. On the other hand, when I’m putting this shoes on, I can feel the click that both my feet loves this shoes. How comfortable the inner sole that is able to make you walk more further as you can imagine, and the front sole that’s made to protect your feet toes. And also, it’s light and it has a simple shoes knit system that allow you to adjust the shoes knit to be loose or tight by pulling or pushing the knit pin of the shoes.
