Gabe Joyes's Bio

I live in Wyoming with my wife and our Alaskan Husky. We are in to UL backpacking, long day hikes, running on roads and trails, and telemark skiing.

We are always pushing it farther, faster, and lighter.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've tried on lots of running shoes over the years but none have ever fit my odd ball foot as good as these. For you other running nerds out there... I have a narrow heel, high arch, wide forefoot, and generally low-volume foot. There protection isn't super, but I've found it sufficient for such places as the Wind River Range, Big Horn Mountains, and San Juans.

The price is disgusting,even embarrassing, but I have to say for me it was totally worth it.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I loved the fit of these shoes... snug in the heel, wide forefoot, huge arch support. But, I found the 20-10 heel drop excessive ? more so that shoes with similar specs. When I ran in them it sort of always felt like I had a huge chunk of mud stuck to the bottom of my foot. Just thick and bulky. Oh well, they look awesome in my unprofessional opinion.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used a variety of softshell jackets over the years and I've finally found my perfect one. This jacket certainly would not be perfect for everyone, but here is what I like about it... extremely breathable, warm for the weight, long length, close-fit yet still allows room for layers underneath.

Beware that this jacket does not block wind, like say a WINDSTOPPER softshell, but it breathes about a billion times better. It works best when you are working hard in cold conditions, like skinning or snowshoeing.

I'm 5'8" 155 and small fits me perfectly

Excellent pack for long trail runs. Somehow, it doesn't bounce too much, but that obviously gets worse if you put a lot of weight in it. It has just enough capacity for along run in the mountains. It can hold plenty of bars, a 1L Platypus Hoser reservoir, a rain jacket, a UL windbreaker, and a mini first aid kit.

The only negative about this pack is that it has a very short torso, so if you have a long torso this probably won't work for you. I generally use a "medium" in packs and the Diablo is barely big enough for me.

These allow you to move faster than a snail while skinning. They won't get you through the deepest snow or the steapest hill, but for lower angles and less snow they are perfect. Mine have worked especially well skinning on forest service roads while trying to make it to some God forsaken trailhead that is miles from a plowed road. If you want to move faster with less effort, get these!
