Back by popular demand, here’s Robert — our favorite water bottle-turned-actor. You might recognize him as the star of our “Lost Bottle” TV commercial, but we think he’s even more entertaining in behind-the-scenes interviews like this one:
Over-packers, take heart: Timberland’s lightweight Radler Trail Camp is both versatile AND compact, which means fewer pairs of shoes in your pack and more room for other “essentials” (marshmallows are essential, aren’t they?).
The Radler features water-repellent ripstop fabric, fleece lining for comfort and 42% recycled rubber lug soles for traction. Best of all, it zips completely into itself – a must-have for hiking and camping when less gear = more fun.

… At least according to this love letter we received from Dave:
I’ve been wearing Timberland boots since I left on my round the world bicycle journey in September 2009, through all sorts of weather conditions – sun, wind, rain, snow – on concrete, mud, sand and gravel.
I’ve taken them to all 4 corners of Canada and each side of the United States and wore them non-stop when having to pedal away from large packs of Bison running after me while riding. I rely on these shoes to get me around as they are well made, the soles are thick and rigid, and importantly the laces and other hardware surrounding the lacing area puts up with considerable amount of abuse. It’s a must to have a waterproof membrane for what I do, and equally important that it can breathe on hot days as I will wear my Timberlands in 104 or -20F.
I’m choosing to wear Timberland boots all the way around the world, I know they work, fit great and can stand up to daily abuse.
Dave’s boots (rest assured we’ve sent him a new pair, just in case these do eventually bite the dust):

And if you’ve had your own Timberland-equipped journey, please share! (It’s okay if your journey was around the block and not around the world … every story counts.)
