I'm on my second pair of Inspires in as many years and would recommend them for anyone who has a mild pronation, as I do. I enjoyed last year's model, but am even more pleased with this year's. While I do like the brighter color, what really works for me is the slight change Mizuno has made in the toe box- last year's was just a little too wide for my feet.

...Thankfully. I've been a Vasque Velocity fan for years now and am very pleased with the small tweaks made to the durability of this model. I primarily wear this shoe for hiking & backpacking and appreciate the balance of motion control and comfort that it provides while wearing a pack.

I've experienced problems with "bubbling" of the sole on recent versions, however, after a couplre hundred miles of wear with no issues, it appears that Vasque has successfully addressed the issue with this version.

If you are in the market for a truly minimalist, lightweight backpack, look no further. Mt. Hardwear has taken some of the best features and innovations from recent cottage industry designs and applied them to this pack. Keeping in mind its intended use, for me, it fits the bill. I appreciate that it doesn’t have lots of pockets, straps, bells or whistles as I would not use them. I also like that it’s not attempting to reach the mass market of backpackers through a one size fits all encompassing design.

I loaded the pack with 27lbs, including food & water and found it to be quite comfortable to hike in for the weekend. One unique touch to this lidless design is the zippered pocket on the roll top.

Additionally, since I line my pack and place the bladder on top of the inside, I’m not concerned that it doesn’t have a designated hydration pocket, however, I do wish that it had a port for a bladder to come through. While I’ve modified mine to allow for this, I was really hesitant to start cutting. Hopefully, future versions account for this oversight.

I was just about to dis this light for not having multiple settings. Thankfully, I took the time to read a couple reviews before posting. Perhaps I should start reading directions? What a cool little headlamp. Not only does the color pattern of this light make you stand out in the backcountry, it has multiple settings too!

Incredibly comfortable, great layer to lounge around in or wander the town. Like others have noted, it does seem to run a little small. I normally wear a medium, and while it fits almost perfectly now, I don't intend to put it through the drier 'cause my girlfriend would end would end up with a new layer. Shhh, pinky swear you won't tell her!

It was fairly simple to replace my old, dried out and rotting bar tape with this new role. While I'm sure the thin line of application tape on the back side helps to keep it stationary it did add to the challenge of getting the wrap correct on the first try.
