hadn't thought about the Altras- I've heard they have a nice roomy toe box, I got to see them in person when we ran the GC last spring- they looked a little light for rough stuff (looked pe...

need trail runners for very rocky/talus/scree conditions

Re: Re: centrifuge
don't get me wrong, I love mine too- it's just that for "summer" use my 4 oz Houdini is going to get the nod (vs the 14 oz Centrifuge) I also love the hood, also love the thumb...

Dirty Girl Gaiters
I'd probably go 4.5 just because of the needed velcro, but I like these enough I wanted to round up. They are breathable, they are light and they do a great job of keeping stuff out of your sho...
