Recommended Merino crew for running?

Would the Stoic Crew be recommended for a merino running/training top? I recently purchased Arc'teryx' Motus, but I don't think it's worth the $65 and I'm a bit appaled by the smell it held after a single 30 minute run! I don't even smell that bad after a half-marathon and somehow this amplified funk!!

Also.. what is the weight for the Stoic Crew, and do they have the slightest amount of itch?

Thanks in advance

How should the MT110s fit compared to road shoes? I currently wear a NIKE LunarGlide size 10, but purchased Brooks PureGrit's also in a 10 and have noticed way too much 'slide' while running trails. I can run in them, but my ankles are wrecked toward the end of each outing.

The photo of the Twilight displayed is the 3P model, so I'm not sure how anyone over 5'10" can possibly be comfortable in the 2P Twilight! I'm 5'6" and felt comfortable by myself, but there is no way I'd add a second person.. I don't like brushing up against the tent wall and with 2 people there isn't a choice. At any rate, I appreciate all the positive reviews that led up to my decision.. I did like the setup of the Twilight versus my North Face Talus 23; it was a breeze. Also, there really isn't 2 poles... it's an entire 3 point bungee skeleton which actually ends up being a little bulky compared to standard bungee poles.

The Arbor Element was my first board, and I can say that it is truly an "All-Mountain" snowboard. There is a decent amount of flex to forgive, and if you get a chance to ride a pow-day on this board you'll be stoked. The Element is also possibly the best looking deck ever produced. The koa wood top is stunning! The '07 bottom with the Hawaiian Island chain is simply 'classic'. After selling off my Arbor Mystic, I was back on my ol' Element and I've ridden pretty much every terrain except rails with it. I would recommend this board for any single quiver owners looking for a versatile snowboard , or a dedicated pow-board.

I live near Arbor Sports and there is no doubt that they produce amazing snowboards. Arbor is one the most supportive companies you'll ever come across! I picked up the '06 Mystic from this site during mid-season and it took some getting used to the overall stiffness compared to the Arbor Element I was riding. The Mystic is a specialized board focusing on the pipe. I definitely don't recommend it for rails/jibbing... it is that stiff! It's a solid ride in hard pack conditions... I also rode the Mystic on an 'epic' pow-day, and although I was wishing I had packed my Element during that weekend, the Mystic was definitely capable of dealing with powder conditions. Again, there is very little flex with the Mystic, but you can probably ollie to the moon if you're able to compress the bamboo core! I would highly recommend this board to any intermediate/advanced pipe boarder.
