X Ultra GTX Mid

rated 4 of 5 stars A waterproof all purpose boot. Suitable for the trail or the street. I bought these to replace my Patagonia Drifter. I need to have products that are versitile. I wear boots for the trail and for work. These boots were comfortable right out of the box. I wore them for hikes in the Bay Area, including Mt Diablo. On wet days, my feet stayed dry. On warm days, my feet didn't get hit. No blisters so far, after 6 months of wearing 3-4 times a week. The only weakness is the tread, which I think could… Full review

Sense Mantra

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I like this shoe a lot. It has great feel on the foot and feels so light compared to other trail runners I have used in the past. Fit/Comfort: Very comfortable tight foot. I have a wider foot and had concerns about buying online. Through several runs I am very impressed with how the shoe fits and feels. It is extremely comfortable. I hate putting on my everyday shoes now. I want to wear my Salomons all the time! Support: Arches feel decent, somewhat lacking for my liking. This isn't a big deal though… Full review

XA Pro 3D

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These are my now go-to hiking and backpacking shoes that replaced my boots. It's also nice that they double as trail running shoes as needed. These are perfect for someone who wants to move fast on the trail but still wants the ankle support of a boot. I'd definitely recommend these if you are looking for a light fast and grippy shoe for all kinds of terrain. Just took these shoes on a cross-country backpacking trip, everything from climbing up and down talus, hike on unkept trails, through meadows,… Full review

Trail 20

rated 2 of 5 stars Though personal, I think it can be said this pack has poor fit. Even if tightened down it will bounce. Does not carry the weight well. This is a nice enough pack. Pretty solidly constructed, OK capacity for bigger unsupported runs, or smaller fast packing ventures. But where it counts most this pack fails to deliver — it is uncomfortable when loaded with any amount of weight that matches its volume. Fit/Comfort: The fit seems nice enough, until you load it up with a bit more than just your wind… Full review

XT Twin Belt

rated 2.5 of 5 stars in my opinion, this pack is more suitable for hiking than running. The first time I ran with the Salomon XT Twin belt on I had to alter my arm swing because my elbows kept hitting off the pack due to the bottles being placed on an angle. I am not sure if my short stature (I am 5'4") and small hip width had anything to do with it. My fiancé tried it on and didn't experience the same problem, so I would imagine the design of the pack is geared toward men. I even think I could get used to the sloshing… Full review
