A:Women might like Montrail’s Mountain Masochist II Outdry ($125). Along with a nice combination of support and stability, Montrail’s proprietary Outdry waterproof-breathable membrane is billed as more flexible than the competition (it has no seams and is heat bonded to the upper). And like any good trail-runner, the Mountain Masochist is designed with more heft in the midsole than a road-runner, which helps to deflect rocks and branches, saving your feet from bruising.
