Recent Running Apparel Reviews

Montane 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

Darn Tough Team Micro Crew

rated 5 of 5 stars Hiking or running, these socks will keep your feet comfortable for miles and miles. Highly recommended! My wife got me these socks as a Valentine's Day gift...don't laugh, it was actually very thoughtful. I said I wanted to get more socks for hiking and such, and she found what turned out to be a great pair of socks for me. I've been wearing these socks for many different occasions since I got them. Everyday use during the winter, running, and for hiking. I've put probably 100 miles on them so far,… Full review

Salomon XA Trail Pro Running Socks

rated 5 of 5 stars The second most important piece of running equipment. So, who writes a review about socks? You can get them anywhere—drugstores, Target, even gas stations will have a pair that will likely fit your feat. So what's the big deal?  The big deal is next to your shoes, socks will affect your running. A bad sock will give you blisters, let ticks attack your ankles, or allow your friends to ridicule you. Socks are IMPORTANT MAN! That said, these socks are fantastic! No pinching, no rubbing of the top… Full review

Salomon Men's Trail T

rated 4 of 5 stars Very lightweight and well made shirt. I bought two of these in the medium size, which turned out to be a little too small in the chest and length. That would be my only critique. The shirts are very light, wick the sweat well, and are very comfortable. I highly recommend these shirts, just pick one size larger. Full review

Salomon Men's EXO Motion Short

rated 4 of 5 stars Great pair of shorts for running or even swimming. These are the most comfortable pair of shorts that I've ever worn for running on the trails. So light it's incredible and well designed with the pockets for gels and keys. I highly recommend getting a pair of these. Full review

ExOfficio Men's Sol Cool Crew Long Sleeve Shirt

rated 3 of 5 stars I'm generally a huge fan of ExOfficio clothing, but maybe not this time. Perhaps I'm expecting too much, a shirt that can actually keep me cooler in East Texas summer heat, but that is what the mfg description claims. But under most summer conditions here, it ain't happenin'. Imagine my excitement when I read about this magic shirt that claims to not only protect the wearer from the sun's rays, but can actually keep you cooler in summer heat than std summer wear.   I spend a fair amount of time… Full review

SmartWool PhD Run Medium Mini Sock

rated 5 of 5 stars SmartWool's PhD Run (medium cushion) is hands down the best hiking sock I have ever used. After 100+ miles on the same pair, there is virtually no signs of wear or pilling. I've purchased SmartWool socks in the past and was not that impressed. They haven't held up any better than cheaper brands. For this reason, I had begun to believe that SmartWool was one of those companies that had once earned its reputation and then faded into fashion-oriented mediocrity. However, the moment I tried on the PhD… Full review

Trailspace Trail Runner Cap

rated 5 of 5 stars Who doesn't want to look fly, feel cool, and represent Trailspace? It's a comfortable, lightweight, and well-fitting hat that drys quickly and wicks sweat very well. Got this awesome hat from Trailspace. I've owned some type of running hat for the last 10 years. This one is by far my favorite. With a sweet TS logo on the front and "trailspace.com" on the back, it's actually a Headsweats brand hat, so you can find it in the store...though you may not look as sharp!   It is very lightweight and is… Full review

MontBell Tachyon Anorak

rated 4 of 5 stars Ultra light wind shirt, great protection, folds up tiny, not superb on breathability. Construction: I can be short with this review — The Tachyon anorak is one of the lightest, if not the lightest, wind shirts on the market. A size Large weighs in at 69 grams.  It folds up the size of a kiwi.  The (very) thin ballistic nylon the Tachyon is made of is very strong. I have worn this for two years, weekly. Not a rip or frayed piece of fabric. Only some discolouration from dirt etc. A friend of… Full review
