Updated Gear Review: Aftermarket Insoles
A year after we opted for aftermarket insoles instead of the flimsy ones that usually come with a pair of new shoes/boots, we've racked up more than 15 million steps between the two of us - enough distance to inform a meaningful update to our original review of aftermarket insoles. Plus, Cadence® added a new variation to its line up, and we share our initial thoughts on the new, blue, Low Volume model designed for lower volume footwear. And we share an easy fix for squeaking insoles/orthotics.

Review: Banff, Yoho & Kootenay National Parks Recreation Map and Visitor Guide from Clark Geomatics
This is a big map, packed with tons of content: charts, timelines, planning and wildlife viewing tips, 80 sights and attractions and more than 100 hikes. The main attraction is the beautiful, shaded relief map of Banff, Yoho & Kootenay National Parks, along with Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park and a few bits of Kananaskis Country, all at a scale of 1:250,000. There are at least three reasons to buy this map: It's a great resource if you're planning a trip to the Canadian Rockies. It makes a great souvenir. It offers ideas to foster your exploration and appreciation of the Canadian Rockies.
