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...

Outdoor Research Razor - Windshells: Review

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....

Lowe Alpine Airspeed - Windshells: Review

Cold, sunny, blowing, wet—when weather changes every ten minutes, the Airspeed keeps pace with zip-off sleeves and a drizzle-resistant shell. 8 oz; www.lowealpine.com

Cloudveil Cache Creek - Windshells: Review

Pull on this warm shell when the mercury plummets. The densely knit polyester doesn't flap in the wind, and a fleecy lining wicks sweat (but adds heft). 12 oz; www.cloudveil.com

Vasque Blur - Trail Runners: Review

Not counting genetic mutants like ultramarathoner Dean Karnazes—who could probably jog a century in flip-flops—the rest of us need trail runners that can go from dirt to rock to road and do...

Adidas Climacool Cardrona - Trail Runners: Review

So hot you're tempted to run in sandals? Give your feet the air—and support—they need with the Cardrona. Thin, open-weave mesh means your dogs can feel every cool mountain breeze that blows...

Timberland Endurion - Trail Runners: Review

If you train like a mailman—neither rain nor sleet will stop you—reach for these submersibles. The seamless upper is sealed with a Gore-Tex XCR liner and reinforced with a see-through TPU...

Mammut Energise - Daypacks: Reviews

Go ahead and cram this pack full on the hottest day. The stiff Butterfly suspension supports a load of rocks, and a mesh panel lets air cool your back. 3.1 lbs, 1,830 cu in; www.mammutusa.comBonus: A...

La Sportiva Crossroads - Trail Runners: Review

Trail, road, trail, road: Like other 2006 standouts, this shoe understands your dilemma and solves it with a mix of cushioning, stability, and traction. Sportiva's climbing-shoe heritage shows in the...

Osprey Stratos 24 - Daypacks: Reviews

Like the Energise, this pack's air-cooled suspension prevents sweaty-back syndrome. Stretch-woven side pockets didn't rip when caught on branches, and zipper finger loops made gloved entries a cinch...

Asics Gel-Trail Attack II - Trail Runners: Review

This featherweight will make your last pair of trail runners feel like ankle weights, but its stability let us sprint down Boulder's ankle-eating Mount Sanitas Trail without limping home. Add grippy...

Gregory Iso - Daypacks: Reviews

Paper-thin silicone-treated nylon, compact size, and a frameless suspension make the Iso superlight—and a good choice for speed hikes. The tradeoff is decreased abrasion resistance and...

The North Face Radial: Trail Runners: Review

Don't resign yourself to bad form. My clunky stride isn't pretty, and the Radial's boldly curved outsole helped my foot roll from heel to toe more smoothly than usual—and get quicker rebound....
