Seth's Bio

I live in Park City, UT and have fun killing it in the mountains year round! I run almost everyday (road and trail), road and mountain bike in the summer, and snowboard in the winter. Utah...it's a beautiful place to be!

I'm a huge fan of the Saucony line and these shoes are another reason why. They are a super light, neutral shoe, but give enough cushion that you won't get totally battered running longer distances on the pavement in them. What really makes it a great shoe isn't just the lightwieght, but how it's made. The cushion is evenly distributed from the heel to the forefoot giving you a more 'natural' stride. A lot of trainers bulk up the heel cushion which is argued to promote heel striking. So, while these are not a typical minimalist shoe, they will promote more of a mid to forefoot stride with the cushion of a trainer, minus the weight.

I got these for really cold hikes and tours thru the snow. My dog Griffin, he's a 40 pound Brittany, doesn't really care for them, but once he gets goin he doesn't even notice they're on. They work well keeping snow from building up between his pads and keeping his feet warm on really cold days. He did lose one in deeper snow, but that was kinda my fault. Now I just check them every 20 minutes or so and readjust if necessary. I'll use them this summer too for long days on the trail.

I wanted a pair of pants I could wear my shorts under so I can warm up outside, then take them off for my workout. And these are perfect! I've worn them in temps from about 35 to 15 degrees and they work like a champ. I've taken them on an hour run as well to see how they'd hold up, and they worked great. The fit is true to size...not too snug and doesn't feel like you're wearing a parachute. The fabric is a little stretchy for good range of motion and they wick moisture very well. Two thumbs up in my book, but what else would you expect from TNF!

I've taken these out in 50 degree temps they work great! These are the only arm warmers I've owned with thumb holes and I am sold on the idea. The extra material helps keep my hands super toasty. They're a little bit thinner than my Defeets, so probably won't take them out on the frigid days.

...get those wheels a rollin! I ride on dry hardpack to loose dirt conditions, and that's what these tires are made for! The grip is great on the switchbacks and I am able to keep my speed effortlessly on the XC sections thanks to the low rolling resistance(I got the 70a). The sidewalls feel a little thin, but haven't had any issues. Not made for mud, but kick a$$ in dry conditions!

This shirt is super light, so would be nice in warm conditions. The problem is the stitching on the shoulders is too short, so when I'm running it tugs on the collar during my arm swing. I thought about getting a larger size, but it fits kind of baggy and I didn't want it to feel huge. I returned it for another shirt.

I bought this for my fiancee' and she LOVES it! We live at 7,000 ft, so winters around town can get brutally cold, but this coat keeps her warm and it looks great! One of the reasons I chose this coat over other downs is the outer material. Most puffies have a pretty delicate exterior, so one snag and you're screwed. Not this coat! The outside is tuff, so it can take all the abuse a late night on the town can throw at you. The furry hood helps with snowy conditions as well.

Clif bar markets these to women mainly because of the boost in folate and calcium, which I've heard women need more of, and they are about 70 calories less than the OG Clif bar. But don't let this fool you. They are a super nutritious snack for everyone and taste great! The OG Clif can feel kinda heavy when I'm just sitting around and want something to munch, but the Luna bar digests really easy. I like to eat one about an or so before I leave work to go for a run.
