Montrail Odyssey - Trail Runners: Review

If you're one of the lucky ones who can trot out the front door and weave together a perfect run on a mix of trail and pavement, stop gloating and buy a pair of Odysseys. At first glance the toothy...

Mountain Hardwear Phenom - Daypacks: Reviews

This climber-friendly pack has a removable hipbelt—a plus when wearing it with a harness—and a weight-shaving detachable lid. Brilliant: Tool attachments double as bottle openers. 2.9 lbs...

Merrell Overdrive - Trail Runners: Review

We can only imagine the highly caffeinated sessions that produced the Overdrive. No detail has been left out or unexamined, from integrated drain holes in the outsole to a protected gaiter strap...

Ever had one of those days when your feet felt so light it's like they weren't quite touching the ground? The X-1/C is the next best thing to bottling that feeling. The secret is shaving every...

Brooks L.S.D. Jacket - Windshells: Review

You'll look like an astronaut out for a run, but this Space Age polyester pullover—with a water-repellent coating—squashes to the size of a plum. The lone pocket is accordingly tiny. 3 oz;...

Keen Ochoco - Women's Trail Runners: Reviews

If a moon boot gave birth to a trail runner, it would look like the Ochoco. But we doubt it would run as well. The padded ankle, soft tongue, and firm arch support gave us blissful feet after long...

Stretchy taffeta panels in key places—elbows, shoulders, and sides—make the Razor our choice when mobility and breathability (not weather resistance) are the highest priorities. 4 oz; www....
