Re: Re: Heavy Duty Bivy?
Thanks Ian. Is there a particular generation of the USGI bivy I should be looking for or are they all pretty much the same? I'm guessing it's probably the best deal for what I need- the...

Heavy Duty Bivy?

Re: I like padding, but no
Its my understanding that the Hokas are actually pretty stable despite their thickness. They cradle the foot deep inside and have a wide, stable footprint, preventing ankle issues (supposedly). ...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: training
Most of my staple runs are out the door to the trail, no car needed. My house is less than one mile from a few different entrances to the Angeles National Forest/San Gabriels. If I don't run...

Re: Re: Re: New Shoe Quiver...
I really wanted the Inov8 Trailroc 255s to work, but trying them on again today, they just are a little weird in the toe for me. I guess I'll be sticking with the Cascadia 7s for a little lo...
