Re: Best rain jacket for a runner?
Stick with windshirts. The most breathable rain jacket in the world will still be miserable for running (at least in my experience). I have both Patagonia Houdini and 9 Trails windshirts. The 9 T...

Re: lightest rain pants
I have 2 options depending on the season. For standard 3 season use I find ULA's rain wrap to be very useful. Just got back from a trip this week where it proved useful as raingear and then s...

Re: Re: Re: Max Daily Mileage and Why?
I agree John, 10-15 mile days is prob the norm for UL hikers up here and freakin ridculous for standard heavy hikers. Like you said, people do put in 25+ mile days in the Whites but normally they ...

Princeton Tec EOS
I have been using the EOS-R for alittle under a year now and have been super happy with it. For some odd reason I find night-time winter trail running "fun" and this is the only headlamp I ...

I purchased this pack alittle over a year ago and simply put, this may be one of the best overall trekking packs for hikers with a well dialed kit. While it is alittle much for a weekend trip it is g...

Vargo Triad
As others have stated, this thing is terrible. It has a great look to it that seems to promise functionality but once you go to use it you will find the opposite. Get a Caldera Cone instead!!!!

Inov8 Flyroc 310
As a trail shoe I do not think it gets much better than the Flyroc's. With their forefoot space, amazing trail feel and fast drying mesh they are pretty close to perfect for New England hiking. ...
