Re: New Balance MT101, 11.5
I am finding the same thing with the sizing of my MT101's. Looks like a word to the wise is to size up if you are considering two sizes.

Re: Re: "New Balance MT101"
hey Mike, I have the new MT101's and have used various Inov8's for 3 years. The main difference I have felt is the MT101 feels like a pure racing shoe. It is gossamer light with very lit...

Re: the "Do it all Pack"
I will second the SMD Swift. Good as a daypack or a weeks worth of supplies. That said my favorite is my ULA Circuit.

hey Sam, my local is very different than yours but I did a Teton hike this year so I am familiar with your gear needs. Only thing that I stood out to me was the fishing shirt/windshirt/rain jacket...

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...

First off I must say that for the vast majority of my trips I strongly prefer a tarp/bivy combo. But for those times when I need a full tent, the Europa has always worked pretty darn well for me. Wh...

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!!!!
