Price Paid: $89.95
I tried a lot of trail shoes in a short time trying to find something that just feels perfect.
Well I got my first pair of Crosslites for Fathers Day. I put them on right out of the box and hit the trails. They were like getting 4 wheel drive for your feet. I like something light and minimal and I feel these really fit the bill.
When you were a kid and got a new pair of shoes did anyone ever tell you you will be able to run faster? Well I feel that way every time I put these on and they feel good no matter whether I am running 5 miles or 50.
So as of right now I am sold.

The Black Diamond Big Gun Harness is the ultimate in comfort and efficiency for any big wall, aid climbing endeavor. With the Big Gun's seven color-coded gear loops you can efficiently place your gear in their respectful places, creating a much better way to find your pieces quickly. Two belay loops (color coded as well) provide a simple, yet separate connection with daisies or a belay device and is rated to 15 kN for a safer connection. An incredibly wide, bullhorn shaped waistbelt gives you extreme comfort as you sit belaying an aid pitch, and an ultra luxurious thermoformed dual density foam is added for those long days in the vertical. The leg loops are fully adjustable giving you a secure fit when changing layers or using the bathroom, and the Big Gun also comes with a holster (and two holster slots) to stow your hammer when your not pounding in bashies or copperheads.
