Brendan Leonard is the creator of Semi-Rad.com and a contributing editor at Climbing Magazine, The Adventure Journal, and other outdoors publications. In August of 2011, after a break-up and economic downturn, Brendan hit the road in the search for answers. He lived out of a van and worked out of coffee shops all around the country three years and now lives in Denver, CO. His book, The New American Road-trip MixTape, is about this journey.

Ideal for dawn-to-dusk climbing objectives or spring skiing, it’s easy to see why the Ferrosi has become a favorite of OR athletes and staffers.
