This is my first pair of hiking/trail running shoes. I chose these based on two factors: style and tread. I saw the The North Face Prophecy's at Cabela's in Glendale, AZ and liked the overall feel of the shoe. I went with the Hedgehog's because of the Gore-tex lining. These are much more comfortable in the Las Vegas and Arizona heat. I climbed up at Red Rock Canyon and these shoes were like glue on the rocks! 5 hours of use in 90+ degree heat and my feet were not aching. I also invested in some synthetic socks by Under Armor which also helped (regular cotton socks created too much friction inside the shoe.) If you don't need the waterproofing abilities of this shoe go with the lesser priced Prophecy model. I'd wear these shoes everyday but I don't want to wear out the bottoms. ;)

I received this beanie as a free gift w/purchase and tried it on when I got it. It fits nice and I can see how it would benefit someone who is hiking in cold/windy conditions. Maybe this will come in handy one day. The North Face and Backcountry.com have embroidered logos on it as well. Great free gift but I would have never purchased it for myself.
