Win Great Gear From yourLUME and The Adventure Blog!

Regular readers know that I love great gear. The only thing better than getting new gear, is giving away cool swag to someone else. That’s why, the Adventure Blog (thats me!) and yourLUME are joining forces to give away some fantastic gear this week in celebration of Earth Day, which takes place this Friday, April 22nd.

We have two pieces of gear up for grabs. First, we have a GoLite Men’s Litespeed Backpack, which is a fantastic, and versatile bag that is great for travel, day hikes, or peak bagging. The second item is a Sierra Designs Verde 20 sleeping bag. This is a three-season bag rated for 20ºF/-7ºC, very comfortable, and lightweight. Either one of these items would make a great addition to your gear closet, especially as the spring/summer hiking and camping seasons arrive. Being a big fan of both GoLite and Sierra Designs gear, I’m already a bit jealous of the readers who win these items.

If you’ve ever taken part in one of my contests before, you know that I try to make them simple and fun. This one is no different. To enter to win either the backpack or the sleeping bag, all you have to do is send me an e-mail at with the subject of “yourLume”and somewhere in the body of the message tell me your favorite outdoor destination where you would use this gear if you were to win. That’s it! Very easy! I’ll collect all the entries, and on Friday I’ll announce a two winners. One gets the backpack and the other the sleeping bag!

A big thanks to the team over at yourLUME for contacting me and providing the gear for the contest. If you’re not familiar with yourLUME, it is a great online site for not only purchasing gear, but also for swapping adventure stories, finding ideas for your next trip, or simply connecting with fellow outdoor enthusiasts. I’m happy to be working with yourLUME on this Earth Day promotion.

Good luck to everyone who enters the contest!
