Welcome to my adventure journal.

I'm Ali Carr Troxell and this is my portfolio. Here you'll find clips from my career as an editor and freelance writer on topics like outdoor gear, adventure travel and more.

Gifts for the Adventure Traveler: The Jet Setter

Tivoli Radio Silenz headphones

Noise-canceling headphones tend to be plastic through and through. The Radio Silenz ($160) are made with walnut, cherry, or black ash. It's no gimmick—the wood insulates the speakers for enhanced sound quality.

Stio Men’s Kirby Nylon Windshirt

The pearl-snap Kirby ($115) is more than meets the eye: this button-down shirt-jacket is made from moisture-wicking nylon. It's ideal for everything from spring skiing to cool-weather hiking to knocking around town on a windy day.

Herschel City backpack

Herschel's packs are cool enough for your teenage nephew for the same reasons they're just right for you: simplicity and style. The top-loading City backpack ($55) is made of waxed cotton and polyester, and features a magnetic closure.

Kaufmann Mercantile Rain Cape

You don't have to look like a mountaineer to keep the rain off. Kaufmann Mercantile's ($179) waxed-cotton Rain Cape is a British-made poncho with a hood and internal straps to cinch extra fabric.

Dale of Norway Sochi Sweater

We're not sure why the Norwegian national Olympic team has an official sweater, but we get why they had Dale of Norway ($318) make it. The handcrafted Sochi sweater is sewn from pill-resistant, 28-micron wool, which is just as warm as merino but has that old-school ski-sweater look.
