Jelt Belt – You will feel good about this belt every time you put it on

We are raving over a belt we recently discovered that is simple, functional and just might become the belt you reach for on a daily basis.

Now, in my house words like “ass” are generally frowned upon, although our younger son enjoys making the case that ass is an acceptable word because it’s in the Bible. This argument does have some merit – but only as long as my son is referring to livestock and not … Continue reading Built for the Mountain Life: Mountain Khakis
