RelxTime Inflatable Hot Tub review – A great tub, with a low price, but a strange spelling!

RelxTime Hot Tub 5

REVIEW – My wife loves hot tubs.  Whenever we travel, a hot tub is the first filter on the Airbnb listing that she checks – it’s a “must-have.”  I’ve always been opposed to getting one at home due to the initial cost both for the tub, and also to have a new 220V line run […]

Waterfield Designs Cycling Tote review – All your cycling stuff, organized and at your fingertips!

Waterfield bike bag 4

REVIEW – I’m fortunate to live in an area with epic cycling right out my front door.  However, not all my rides start at my house.  Often I am driving to a different area or heading to a race, which means I ned a bag for my gear.  I usually grabbed whatever was closest –

Restrap Adventure Race Top Tube Bag review – all your bike necessities, at your finger tips!

Restrap Bag 10

REVIEW – Carrying small bits of gear on your bike like an inner tube, small jacket, or a snack traditionally meant a bag that hung off the back of your seat, or maybe a handlebar bag.  These work to carry things, but it’s not easy to grab what you need while riding.  Enter the Race

FlexiSpot Modular Sofa review – Comfortable seating in any size or shape that you want, with built-in storage! 

Flexispot Sofa 8

REVIEW – Our family room has been the main gathering place in our house since we moved in in 2005.  We got a new sofa then, and it survived almost 20 years and two kids.  It was still comfortable, but in rough shape.  When the opportunity to review the FlexiSpot modular sofa, I jumped on

Engwe L20 2.0 fat tire e-bike review – new features, and a lower price!

engwe bike 24

REVIEW – One of the most interesting aspects of writing reviews is seeing how products evolve.  It’s not often that one gets to review the same product twice, but that’s the case here.  Last year, I reviewed the Engwe L20 e-bike.  The bike was OK, but there were some obvious misses.  This year’s version does

FlexiSpot E7 Pro standing desk review – All your work, seated or standing!

flexispot desk 5

REVIEW – For almost 20 years, my desk has been a hollow-core door sitting on top of two filing cabinets.  It’s served me well, but I thought it was time for an upgrade. I’ve wanted to try a standing desk for a while now, with all the information coming out about how sitting is the

Goldenmate Orion 1000 LiFePO4 battery review – Keep tabs on your power use, right from the battery!

goldenmate battery 6

REVIEW – During the pandemic, my wife and I built a camper into a box trailer.  A big part of that build was an entire 12V power system, including solar panels, a solar charge controller, a DC-AC inverter, and a battery.  The battery is the key to this system because nothing works without it.  When

Ultimea Apollo S50 Detachable Soundbar review – Better TV sound, with a few options!

Ultimea soundbar 7

REVIEW – It used to be that you had two choices for TV audio – the tiny speakers that are built into TVs or large home theater systems with many speakers that dominate the room.  Then soundbars became popular and added a third option for folks that wanted much better sound than a TV can

Kemimoto Classic Heated Vest review – Stay warm, just about anywhere!

Kemimoto vest 7

  REVIEW – When I was a kid, we planned a ski trip to the mountains of West Virginia.  The forecast was shaping up to be VERY cold, so my dad got me a pair of heated socks.  They were wool socks with a bunch of D batteries in a holder that strapped to your

Flextail Max portable shower review – clean off, anywhere!

Flextail shower 10

REVIEW – It seems like most of the activities I’m involved with involve mud.  Caving, mountain biking, and  trail running can get you very dirty, often far from any “normal” places where you could clean up.  Additionally, you usually end up with muddy gear.  This leaves me with the option to drive home sweaty and

House of Marley Stir it Up wireless turntable review – Great design, great sound, but why hide it?

Marley turntable 4

REVIEW – I’ve been on a mission to simplify the home theater setup in our living room.  There is a squirrel’s nest of wires behind all the cabinets and in each corner, and there are speakers everywhere.  Much of the equipment is around 15 years old, and we really just don’t use it. So I

InMotion S1 electric scooter review – A comfortable ride, that’s just a bit larger

inmotion scooter 7

REVIEW – Electric scooters are all the rage among city commuters.  They are generally light, portable, powerful, and efficient.  I’ve tried several, and as someone over 6 feet tall, I often feel cramped.  And with height comes weight (190 lb, in my case), and with weight comes a need for power. Enter the InMotion S1

Ombar DC42 Dash Cam review – a cheap insurance policy while driving

Ombar dash cam 7

REVIEW – Dash cameras have become inexpensive, small, and the quality of the imagery has really improved in the last few years. With all that improvement, it seems like a no-brainer to get a dash cam.  At best, you could protect yourself in a lawsuit or dispute with an insurance company. Or you can just

Quntis 16 inch Christmas Wreath review – A quick and easy upgrade to your holiday decorations

Quntis wreath 6

REVIEW – My house has largely had the same holiday decorations for the last 10 or so years. This includes a tired “plastic” wreath on the front door, that so many of the needles have fallen off of that it looks more like a wreath of wire than greens.  And it never had lights –
