Named after the mileage of the Pacific Crest Trail, the Danner Trail 2650 ($150) has been gear editor Jeremy Rellosa's go-to warm-weather hiker. With lugs that offer support and grip on technical terrain, the 2650 is a solid option for backpacking, approaches to the crag, and more casual trips around town.
