Re: running pack
I have not used one, but the Inov8 pack designs look pretty cool. I like how the water bladder is positioned low around the waist. They are pretty light as well.

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. ...
