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...

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...

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;...

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...

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-...

Asics Gel-Eagle Trail V - Women's Trail Runners: Reviews

This shoe will make a convert of even diehard roadies. With aggressive tread perched on top of road-shoe-like gel cushioning, and a flexibility that allows the smooth heel-to-toe roll that roadies...

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...

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...

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...

Adidas 125 Windshell - Windshells: Review

Lab-coat white may be questionable by day, but after dark this shell’s seams shine when caught in the glare of headlights. 4 oz; www.adidas.com

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....

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....
