UNIQLO Airism Men’s V-Neck

UNIQLO Airism Men's V-Neck Review

UNIQLO Airism is UNIQLO’s new lightweight, moisture wicking, anti-odor, odor controlling “innerwear” line, designed to trap all that is bad before it ever reaches your current outfit (whoops, did not know that before starting this review). The line consists of underwear, camisoles, tanks and t-shirts.

The men’s v-neck is ridiculously lightweight and compact-able. It’s great for traveling and hiking. It feels like you are wearing almost nothing. Hiking in 90+ degree weather tested its ability to wick away moisture and dry quickly. This thing does not soak up sweat and retain it. After halting movement, the shirt was dry to the touch in about 10 minutes.

The fabric also lived up to its anti-odor and odor controlling claims. Careful sniffing (and I have a super sensitive nose) yielded faint traces of deodorant and slight body odor, mostly overpowered by the smell of new, synthetic shirt.

If you’re looking for a cheap and lightweight shirt for outdoor activities, this shirt gives you a ton of bang for your buck. Oh, and did I mention it’s cheap? It’s available at UNIQLO for $12.50. Not too shabby!

This hike from the Palomarin trailhead to Alamere Falls is a moderately easy, but decently long hike. Start at the trailhead and follow signs for the falls. Early into the hike, underneath a grove of eucalyptus trees, there is a small trail to the left leading to the coast. This little offshoot leads you through green hills to a rocky beach (read: dinosaur egg rocky) that has the potential to be absolutely gorgeous in not-foggy weather.

Continue on the trail past Bass Lake until you reach a sign that points to Alamere Falls through some underbrush. If you are up for a potentially poison oak-y adventure and getting hit in the face by shrubbery, take this trail to reach the waterfall and a sandy beach. Your shell will come in handy to protect your clothing and skin from PO and snagglies.

Once you get out of the brush, begin your descent down to the first set of mini-falls of Alamere Falls. Beautiful, but small.

Palomarin Trailhead to Alamere Falls, Point Reyes, CA

Cross the stream and continue down to the top of the big falls. Look over the edge if you dare. The crumbly rock face to your right will be your way down. It’s easiest to just jump off onto the first ledge, and then run the rest of the way down onto the sandy beach Palomarin Trailhead to Alamere Falls, Point Reyes, CA. The rock is incredibly fragile and does not do well with force.

Run around and frolick in the sand, have lunch, enjoy the beach and waterfall. Then head back the way you came to get back to the trailhead.

All in all, this is a good hike if you’re out for a mellow day. It’s not strenuous and the scenery is gorgeous. The only downside is Point Reyes is a bit of a hike (ha!) if you live in the South Bay like me.

Note: This trail gets very muddy and run out when it has been raining. Proceed with caution.

Additionally, if you are not a fan of seeing people everywhere in nature, this is not the hike for you.

Hello!

Point Lobos State ParkLittle Grunts: guttural noises of the minuscule variety, typically heard when completing big and tough rock climbing moves.

Hello! I’m Paulina! I’m 5′ tall and excited about everything. Especially climbing and the outdoors. 80% of my wardrobe consists of tacticool & technical clothing. I’m kind of a gear junkie; not sure why I need 50 down jackets, but I do. (For the record, I only have one… so far.)

By (week) day, I hang out at Practice Fusion with some cool folks and cute pups in San Francisco. By (week) night, I’m sweating like a pig at my climbing gym. You can find me trekking through forests and the city, or traversing rock walls & boulders on the weekend.

I have a Fitbit and I’m obsessed with it! So I’ve included some Fitbit stats, just for kicks. Have one too? Be my Fitbit friend here.
