Brooks Men's Cascadia 11

These shoes serve as my day hikers and trainers. Great stability and traction with solid support. The fit is true to size and they are narrow in the heel, which… Full Review »

Osprey Kestrel 48

In general, I am satisfied with the product. I usually use it during the summer months, on 3-day or 2-day trips (for single-day hikes I bought a Talon 33) without… Full Review »
