Montane Trail Stretch Gaiter

rated 4 of 5 stars A low trail gaiter that finds a pleasing blend of light weight, durability and functionality. This product is especially good for trail routes requiring frequent put-on and take-off (such as creek fords) due to ease and speed of application and removal.   Click to enlarge About the gaiter: This product is marketed as a trail running gaiter featuring Granite Stretch fabric (90.5 % nylon / 9.5 % spandex with DWR), RAPTOR UTL kick patches (500 denier 100% nylon with DWR), hook and loop fastening (known… Full review

Dragon 20

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Finally a small pack that fits like a race vest. Super comfortable, carries the weight really well. Probably warm in height of summer, bladder compartment too small. This is a great small pack with an even greater fitting race vest fit. It carries so well you hardly notice the weight — until you take the pack off and realise that you have 5-6Kg in there.  Fit/Comfort: This is where this packs shines. There is a big elastic velcro strap and a higher 'sternum' strap that keep the pack glued to… Full review

Dragon 20

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Finally a nice pack that allows for multi-day runs. It's not perfect, but in the most important aspect — carry while running — it's great. I was able to get this pack out for a two day trip into the Crazy Mtns. I had to load a little more kit as we received a big dump of snow and cooler temps. Kit consisted of a 30°F down quilt, inflatable pad (had to add a thin ccf pad due to temps), eVENT bivy, small pot/esbit stove, Steripen, down jacket, hooded midlayer, tights, spare socks and the usual… Full review

Dragon 20

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A well-built and lightweight pack for ultrarunning and fast packing, big enough to carry layers, emergency gear, and food for long mountain runs in mixed weather, or for a UL weekender. Recommended for those kinds of activities, but not as a general purpose day pack. I received the Montane Dragon 20 from Trailspace a little too late to try it out in the 60 km Birkebeiner Ultra, but have put it to the test on some of my longer training runs and on a few day hikes. It is very well-designed and -built,… Full review

Shark Ultra Tee

rated 5 of 5 stars The Montane Shark Ultra Tee is a most impressive garment! It fits well, it breathes very well, it remains virtually odor free, and it wears like iron. Although it was designed for trail running I highly recommend it, without reservation, for any athletic outdoor activity and particularly as a base layer. Features: The Montane Shark Ultra Tee is a garment designed for Mountain Running, Trail Running, and Mountain Marathons. It is made of a synthetic hyper stretch fabric that Montane calls Quartz… Full review
