Race Pro 4

rated 5 of 5 stars My go-to short distance, sub 2 hour, trail runner pack. This has been a great purchase. I have a variety of running packs I use dependent on where and how long I intend to run. This pack is great for sub 2 hour runs.  The fit is superb. It cinches tight and does not jiggle nor loosen during my runs. It is very comfortable to wear. The capacity is as advertised. Internally the bag fits my first aid kit, spare socks, tissues, and waterproof jacket.  The external bungee straps I put my ultralight… Full review

Roclite 295

rated 5 of 5 stars An excellent performer in almost any trail conditions. So I've had these runners for over a year. They are excellent. They are still performing and have yet to show any real sign of wear and tear — even on the soles. I've given them a fair bashing and they are still holding up. When I first got them I took them out of the box and straight on to the trail. No break-in was required.  I generally run the Waitakere Ranges in these — winter and summer. In winter the tracks in the ranges are rain… Full review

Roclite 286 GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A light, grippy, load bearing, excellent hiking boot. I can't imagine going back to heavy hot leather over engineered boots. Fit was perfect out of the box. Didn't bother breaking them in. I took them on a weekend tramp to the Chatham Islands to walk the backcountry. No tracks and lots of native bush and wetlands and peatlands. Walked around 40km in one day in them. I suppose I walked about 70km in total. The days were around 26 degrees Celsius or 78.8 Fahrenheit for those who don't like logical… Full review

Race Elite 260 Thermoshell

rated 4 of 5 stars The Inov-8 Race Elite Thermoshell is a lightly insulated (Primaloft Sport), reversible jacket with an emphasis on trail running features. With 40 g/m2 on the chest and body and 25 g/m2 on the arms and collar you get just the right amount of insulation, where you need it, in cool to cold weather running. Retail Price: $200 Weight: 9.9 oz (including stuff sack) Packed size: Roughly a Nalgene bottle *Warning: this review is filled with far too many selfies, if you are squeamish, look away now. Also… Full review

Terroc 330

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a great lightweight trail runner that’s light on cushioning support, yet is very comfortable to wear on long-distance treks. I’ll preface this review with an important, upfront distinction:  the manufacturer remade this shoe circa 2010.  I don’t care for the newer model, and still seek out the shoes made in 2009 and earlier (it’s possible to find them online, though getting scarcer). And it’s very easy to distinguish the newer from the older: the newer model is a purple/orange… Full review
