Sleeves
I also like sleeves instead of carrying an full LS shirt. My Moeben sleeves weigh 2.5oz. It's nice to start out hiking with them on a cool morning & then be able to pull them off w/o removi...

Re: Help please trail runners
I've always found the Brooks Cascadias to be great hiking shoes. They're a bit heavier than your Inov8s (345g), but I doubt that will matter much for hiking (vs. running). They have certa...
