Hurtta Outback Boots

One after another, they carry us on our journeys. They keep us upright and separate us from the hot sand, harsh snow and sharp earth. They take a beating for us and without them; we wouldn’t be able to trek on easily. Our feet are a crucial and often overlooked body part that requires care […]

Hurtta Trainer’s Vest

I think most of us can agree that our dogs have way nicer equipment than we do. Reggie is decked out in all the latest high-tech outdoor equipment and I’m just bumming around in 10-year-old hiking boots, a Gore-Tex jacket with a broken zipper and my backpack held together by safety pins. As the shabby hiker […]

Hurtta Outback Dreamer

“You have a WHAT for your dog?!” is often the question I hear when my dogless backpacking friends and I talk about gear. “Yes, she has her own sleeping bag” is my response as I explain the multitude of reasons why I bring one along for her.  No matter how skeptical, they’re always brought around […]

Hurtta Slush Combat Suit

The sun is out, the geese are flying north, and the ever so persistent blanket of snow is slowly disappearing from right in front of our eyes. Spring has finally shown us its beautiful face and with the delight of saying good-bye to old man winter we now have a new enemy to contend with. […]

Giant boulders, narrow bridges, rocky scrambles, and cliffside passes are all areas where having a little extra control and safety can help steer our journeys away from disaster. There are some situations where having your dog on a […]

Hurtta Hiker Belt

Ellie & Atlas have become my go-to running partners, and our canicross adventures had been lackluster until we received the Hurtta Hiker Belt from Hurtta North America. Prior to this belt we were using the Ruffwear Roamer hands free/waist leash but with my curvier body the thin strap and minimal padding meant it often rode […]

Hurtta Mountain Rope Leash

Reggie tested the 6 foot Hurtta Mountain Rope Leash from we received from Hurtta America in the Juniper colour option. The leash is available in both a ½ inch and 1/3 inch thicknesses and comes in a variety of colours. We tested the ½ inch leash. Retailing at around $40.00 CDN, it isn’t the most inexpensive […]

Hurtta Extreme Warmer

It gets bone chillingly cold in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. We generally get blanketed with snow 8 months of the year. (October – May) We have temperatures dropping down to -40 C (same as -40F) with the wind-chill at times. It is the kind of cold that makes your muscles ache and your face go numb. […]

Hurtta Summit Parka

The Hurtta Summit Parka is the first Hurtta America product that we have ever owned and after our wonderful experience we will never hesitate to spend the extra money again as it has more than proved that you get what you pay for. We used this parka in very cold and snowy environments, during snow […]

Hurtta Trail Pack

The Hurtta Trail Pack received from Hurtta America is advertised as highly adjustable, multi-functional pack with emphasis placed on comfortable fit for the dog and large, detachable saddlebags.  In our opinion, this pack does not disappoint on any of its advertised features.  It has quickly become the most regular piece of equipment in our adventure repertoire.
