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

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....

Teva X-1/C - Trail Runners: Review

If you took a razor and cut every gram of fat from a typical trail runner, you'd get the X-1/C. Amazingly, Teva didn't have to whittle away stability to do it. The trick: The upper's lacing-and-...

Helly Hansen Mars

Helly Hansen Mars - Windshells: Review

Your boxers weigh more than this full-zip nylon jacket. It blocks the breeze but lets steam out with a latticework of armpit vents, then disappears into your pocket when the wind dies down. 2 oz; www...

Brooks L.S.D. Jacket

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;...
