This is a great shell when you need to carry a shell, but don't need bomber protection. I carry this on mountain runs when you need to be protected from afternoon thunderstorms. The light weight and compact size fit easily in a small hydration pack or under a bungee on a hip belt. The shell does not breath the best, but it serves it's purpose. I wore this jacket for the 2008 Leadville Trail 100 where it rained for the entire race. The jacket kept me dry enough to stay warm in the 40F temperatures.

These are the most active free pivot tele bindings I have skied on. They weigh a little more than the Ascents or Switchbacks,http://content.backcountry.com/images/bcs/buttons/add_review.gif but if you tour on a fat ski and stiff boot, these are the bindings for you. Beware, the spring cartridges loosen and need to be tightened frequently.

I have sworn by the Hard Rock for Ultra Marathons for the past 5 years. The shoe has great protection in the toe box and a cushioned sole to absorb everything the trail throws at you. The shoe is heavier than other shoes which makes it less adequate for short & fast races, but when you are heading out for several hours on the trail, your feet will appreciate the Hard Rock.

These are great trail shoes. They are very light and more comfortable than the Streak's. They have a moderate amount of toe box protection. I have used these on runs of up to 10 miles and found them very comfortable. I plan to train in them up to 20 miles, but will stick with the beefier Hard Rocks for runs over 20 miles.

I would recommend these shoes for any trail runner with good ankle strength (they don't have as much support as heavier trail shoes).

The CWX Sports Bras are the most supportive and comfortable bras I have ever worn. The Mesh Support Bra is even more comfortable since it breaths so well and dries quickly. I run a lot of miles including a 50 mile ultra-marathon and will not run without wearing a CWX sports bra. The soft support web provides the most support and comfort instead of just compression.
